Forever in the Sun (Sapphire Cay #6) by RJ Scott and Meredith Russell
Thank you for letting us invade your blog! As we were out of ideas we asked for questions and boy, did we get them… where RJ and Meredith go to war over cream teas.
Ann-Marie O’Callaghan What is your favourite cake?
RJ: I love simple sponge cake with fresh cream, or a victoria sponge with buttercream. Really, I’m all about the cream (said the actress to the bishop). I’m also partial to a nice battenburg which is marzipan wrapped about these cute oblong sponges… oh and at Easter Cadburys make these easter cakes with little chocolate eggs on them… *to die for…
M: Cake? Eesh. I have to say I’m not a huge cake eater. Not like cake-cake anyway. I generally prefer things like Brownies, Caramel Shortcakes and Scones, which rhymes with thrones 😛 and you have to put the jam on first. I don’t know if RJ agrees with me on that one or not. But cake-cake I love Christmas cake, so fruit cake when it’s all moist and full of alcohol, and I like the ends/sides of Birthday cake because I love marzipan and icing 🙂
RJ: Scones, for definite you have to put the jam on first. You need a solid base for the cream. I think the English could generate a civil war over what goes on first.
M: Do you put butter on as well? Butter, then jam, then cream 🙂
RJ: BUTTER! WTF… no… no butter with cream *horrified expression*
M: Mmmmm *happy face*
RJ: I might have to disown you now
Jen Walter What don’t you ever want to write about together or separately?
RJ: I won’t write a historical, I think I am safe to say Meredith doesn’t either. Historical is a terrible pit of getting things wrong – which I would inevitably do. Meredith loves Sci Fi and fantasy and zombies and my work crosses hers with the action adventure side. Our ideas often mesh. Our next series is based around Cops, all hard and gritty and sexy…
M: What don’t I want to write? Oh. Yeah historical would be a thing I’d avoid really. I love period dramas on TV but to write one and getting the clothes and vocab and things like that right I think I’d get myself into a right mess.
RJ: So we agree on something then. No breeches ripping…
M: No, I’ll leave all that to those with the real oomph to research all that. Other things I don’t think I’ll ever write is cowboys. So I won’t be putting forward the idea of co-authoring a Texas: The Next Generation series with her lol. Again I do like Westerns, or used to, haven’t watched anything but the True Grit remake in a long time, but I don’t know, it’s not something I would go to when thinking of ideas, and certainly not cowboys in the past. My mind is full of fantasy stuff and action and horror. I am thinking of writing a book that has horses in, but it’s set in the UK and the present. Anything else I wouldn’t write? Hmm. BDSM/Erotica.
RJ: Oh yes, I forgot BDSM, I couldn’t do it justice and I stay away from it. About the closest to BDSM i have is Riley and Jack and the barn and their rope… and that is quite tame in a hot way 🙂
M: Ah the boys and their barn. I could probably handle a bit of hands tied to bed posts or running an ice cube over a guy’s chest, but anything beyond that I’m with RJ about not doing it justice, and would never want to disrespect anyone who is part of all that. Though saying that, I did write a short fanfiction once after seeing a picture of a ball gag that had a dildo attachment #truestory
RJ: I don’t remember that story. You need to send it to me…
M: *goes all embarrassed* Maybe later.

Feuding families, unearthed secrets, and a violent storm threatens the Cay. Will the idyllic island with her cast of characters make it through unscathed? It’s time for the circle to close on the story of Sapphire Cay, and on the men who have lived and found love on her beaches.
Join characters old and new as we celebrate Dylan and Lucas’s wedding and delve into the history of Sapphire Cay.
Connor and Shaun are directly related to Peter and Alfie, a couple whose clandestine lover affair was overshadowed by old prejudices and a world war. Shaun Jamieson is a writer, a romantic and needs to pen the story of the affair’s final secrets; Connor French’s family wants to stop Shaun.
When the two men step onto the sands of Sapphire Cay, they find more than just the secrets of an old love. They find hope and comfort in each other. But with the past hanging over them, can they ever have what Peter and Alfie could not? Or are they just as ill-fated as their ancestors?
The offices of the French Foundation, New York, June
“Your two o’clock is here, Mr. French.” Miriam’s voice floated in over the intercom. The abruptness of it startled Connor from his cost-benefits analysis and he knocked his coffee down, sloshing it onto the paperwork.
“God dammit,” he muttered under his breath. He couldn’t get the figures to balance and trying to find a missing ten-dollar transaction in among a million dollar bank account was screwing with his head. Where had three hours gone? He glanced sideways at his lunch. Or what was left of it. He was surprised he’d managed to actually eat at all because he certainly didn’t remember the food arriving or him even picking up the ham on rye. He had to get these reports done before the accounts department could sign off on them.
He pressed the button. “Give me two,” he said. Quickly he scooped the plate, with the remaining food, into his top drawer and straightened enough paperwork to look efficient. He didn’t recall the details of this two o’clock, just that it was someone with issues about the Foundation. Connor was used to answering all kind of questions, from students, politicians, kids to teachers and there was no one at this Foundation who knew what type of work they undertook as well as him. Apart from Miriam, who had been a PA at the Foundation longer than Connor had been alive. She knew where all the bodies were buried and Connor would be lost without her.
A knock on the door heralded the visitor’s arrival and Connor stood, brushing his shirt of crumbs as he called, “Come in.”
The door opened and Connor had to stop his mouth falling open. Gorgeous. Very nice. Tall, slim, dark hair, with added sexy smile and confidence in the way he walked in. Connor checked him out, couldn’t help it, he hadn’t seen anything this fine in a very long time. I need to get out more. From head to toe, his gaze finally focused back on the man’s face and embarrassment washed over him when the guy was looking at him with one eyebrow raised in question. So much for subtle. Well, at least he isn’t punching me to the floor.
RJ Scott has been writing since age six, when she was made to stay in at lunchtime for an infraction involving cookies. She was told to write a story and two sides of paper about a trapped princess later, a lover of writing was born.
As an avid reader herself, she can be found reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror. However, her first real true love will always be the world of romance where she takes cowboys, bodyguards, firemen and billionaires (to name a few) and writes dramatic and romantic stories of love and passion between these men.
With over seventy titles to her name and counting, she is the author of the award winning book, The Christmas Throwaway. She is also known for the Texas series charting the lives of Riley and Jack, and the Sanctuary series following the work of the Sanctuary Foundation and the people it protects.
Her goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.
