Here's a Q&A with Xavier Stirling, the (fictional) hero in the steamy
romantic suspense book written by Miranda P. Charles called XAVIER: THE CONTRACT (Indie
Rebels, Book 1).
Interviewer: Hello, Xavier. Glad to have you at MPC Character
Xavier: Thank you. Happy to be here.
Interviewer: So, author Miranda P. Charles wrote a book about
you and your romance with Eve Marrin. I have to say, you and Eve have been
through some very tough times.
Xavier: Well, Miranda P. Charles did base the love story on me
and Eve. But she wrote the other bits for pure entertainment.
Interviewer: What do you mean? Are you saying some of details
in the book aren't true?
Xavier: Yes. For example, in the book, I'm a crime-fighting
Indie Rebel. I'm not an Indie Rebel. I've never even met an Indie Rebel in my life.
Interviewer: I see. Well, according to the book, being an Indie
Rebel has to be a well-kept secret because you guys are on the hit list of
several criminal syndicates. I can understand why you're trying to deny being an
Indie Rebel. (Winks.)
Xavier: (Smiles patiently.) I'm really not an Indie Rebel.
Interviewer: Sure, Xavier. I understand. (Winks.)
Interviewer: Okay, let's talk about you and Eve.
Interviewer: Is there a chance that your love story is fake or,
at least, embellished?
Xavier: No. That part is all true. I do love Eve. I'm crazy
Interviewer: What a shame.
Xavier: Beg your pardon?
Interviewer: Um… what a shame that parts of the book aren't
real. Anyway, if your relationship with Eve is a true story, does that mean that
those steamy bedroom scenes are completely accurate?
Xavier: (Laughs.) You have to ask Eve that.
Interviewer: Oh, you're such a gentleman. Come on. You can tell
us. No need to be shy—or humble.
Xavier: (Still chuckling.) I really prefer if you ask Eve that.
She was the one who gave Miranda the details for those intimate scenes.
Interviewer: Okay. I'll do that, then. So would you recommend
Xavier: The Contract, even if a big chunk of it is not a true portrayal
of your life? I mean, even the series title is called Indie Rebels, and yet you
say you're not one…
Xavier: Yes, I still recommend it. It's very good fiction. (Winks.)
When Xavier Stirling's father suddenly confesses to fraud, Xavier suspects
he's being coerced by a notorious criminal. With the police already failing to
lay a finger on the culprit, when Xavier finds himself the target of false
accusations that threaten to ruin his own business, he desperately looks
elsewhere for help. Enter the Indie Rebels—a secret group unsanctioned by law
enforcement agencies. But to get their help, Xavier has to become an Indie Rebel
himself. His first assignment is to keep journalist Eve Marrin safe—without Eve

for her. Now Xavier not only needs to watch his back—he also has to watch his
For Eve Marrin, her new job as co-lead reporter for a popular public affairs
program is a dream come true. She loves nothing more than to uncover scams,
unfair business practices and other matters that the public has the right to
know about. When she's given a tip to investigate the fitness training business
of Xavier Stirling, she soon realizes she needs to build a wall around her heart
in order to do her work.

Miranda P. Charles is the author of more than eighteen steamy and stirring
contemporary romance novels.
She prefers to spend her time in front of her
laptop, putting into words the love stories that play in her head. Don't get her
started with reading a great book, though, because she has the tendency to not
put it down until she gets to the last page.
She does have a life outside
of books. Mostly, that consists of bonding with family and friends or going on
romantic trips with her awesome husband (who, thankfully, puts up with her
hermit-like daily routine). Oh, yeah, there's also the housework. But she really
wishes someone else could do that for her so she could get back to her
She lives in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia.
