Ride for a Cure and N.C Winters #eroticromance #western #cowboys #contest

Today we have erotic romance author N.C Winters in the hot seat, discussing her latest novella, Ride for a Cure. She has a fierce love of bacon and has some swag for a lucky guest! So read on! 



Interview questions for N.C Winters…

Quick round:
Coffee, tea or…what’s your vice?  Soda! I’d die without it, and Coffee as well J

Favorite Movie:  Oh that’s hard I love movies! Ummmm I’ll go with Dirty Dancing.

Favorite Color: Pink

Favorite book/author:  Jasinda Wilder & Kelly Elliott I have read all their books and loved every one of them.

How do you feel about bacon?  Bacon is the SHIT isn’t it? I mean it goes with everything! YUM now I’m hungry and I blame you lol

The REAL questions…
Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a country girl through and through. I was raised most of my life in West Virginia and I love it here. It’s quiet and peaceful, I have a serious addiction to peanut butter cups, and I am a sucker for flowers. I have four children Payten 8, Hannah 6, and Landen & Izabella are almost 4. I married my best friend on 11/11/11 after knowing him 11 years ( and we so did not plan that realized that after the fact lol) I am a fairly busy mama so this is basically my day to day life J

What’s under your bed? 
Ummm I think a couple extra pillows, and possibly a kitten or two ( Yeah mama decided to get knocked up and well they have taken over my room ugh)

What comes first, plot or characters?  Plot for me

Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process. 
I’m going to say plotter, I always have the storyline from beginning to end made up in my head, but I do have a bad habit of not writing it down.

Oddest thing on your desk?
 Bacon?? HA Just kidding umm There really isn’t anything too odd on it just the usual lol
What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in? 
The steam! Who doesn’t love a book full of sexy men and hot sex right?

What is the hardest thing about being an author?  
Becoming known, it is so hard to get your name out.

What’s the easiest thing about being an author?  
Getting to write what you love, setting your own hours.

What do you wish someone had asked you for an interview question?  What inspires you?  I think that there is something different to everyone’s writing process. I have to write about something that affects me. I don’t know why, but I do. Like with The Escape its Anna trying to create a life after loss, Ride for a Cure touches on Autism, and my WIP Love, Honor and Sacrifice is about a Marine. These are all real life issues that I have faced. Sure I have changed them up a bit, but one way or another everything I have written has had my real life experiences in it.

Tell us about your latest release! 
Since I have signed with Beau Coup Ride for a Cure is my latest release, but The Escape will be out soon it’s in editing. That is actually the first book that I Self-Published.

Blurb for Ride for a Cure… 
Grayson James has dedicated almost his entire life to running the ranch his Granddad built for his Grandma in Odessa Texas, but when his niece Macee opens his eyes to a whole new opportunity, he begins to change the lives of kids all over Texas. When Macee gets diagnosed with autism at the young age of three, Grayson immediately notices the bond she seems to have with his horses. She tries to talk and interact with them more than she does people. That's when Grayson starts the Ride for a Cure Foundation, allowing children diagnosed with autism to come to his ranch daily for two weeks out of the summer to ride and interact with his horses. He also raises money to donate to finding a cure. Love was the last thing on his mind until he met Tanley West.

Tanley West grew up in a middle class neighborhood never really doing without, but never having the things money can buy which most kids take for granted, like vacations or a simple shopping trip with her mother.. Her only goal was to go to school and open her own bakery. When she and her best friend Presley Evans finally make that dream a reality, she seems to be on top of the world but Presley knows things have been hard for Tanley since she lost her dad. When Grayson James walks in to their little shop, Sweet Treats, to place an order for his local charity auction, Tanley is blown away and left breathless by his sexy cowboy looks and sweet southern charm. Tanley has a choice, she can let Grayson walk away or she can risk it all for love. Either way, Grayson is not giving up. He sees what he wants - and he wants Tanley.

Excerpt for Ride for a Cure...

Oh my God, when that man walked in I swear I thought my knees were going to collapse under me. He was easily six foot, with dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes, wearing a tight-ass pair of wrangler jeans and a white t-shirt which hugged his body enough for me to know he was seriously ripped. I could see a tattoo peeking out of the edge of his sleeve, but couldn’t fully make out what it was. The hottie wore a cowboy hat which he immediately removed when he started talking to me.

The second he was out the door, I immediately ran to the back to find Presley. Presley and I have been friends our entire lives, neither one of us came from a family who had much of anything and it was always our dream to own a bakery together. So, as soon as we graduated high school we enrolled in The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Dallas, working two jobs each so we could have enough money for everything we needed to start our business. The building was given to me by my dad’s friend Jamie. He had owned it as long as I could remember, but had never used it for anything. We’d been open about a year now and business was thriving for us.

“Pres! Where the hell are you!” I was hollering as I walked all through the back looking for her. As I headed toward our office I heard her hang up the phone.
“Hey, Tan, I'm in here” I went in and plopped down at my desk which sat next to hers. “Okay, ummm, Tan…what the hell? You look love struck,” she said laughing.

I couldn't help but smile at her. “Love struck, no, but totally slobbering on myself, yes,” I laughed as I tossed her the slip I’d made for the sweets Grayson had ordered.

“What the hell, Tan?? Almost three thousand people and you’re not charging him?”

I sat up in my chair a little straighter. “Pres, he runs the Ride for a Cure organization. He does amazing things for children. The least we can do to give back is make some damn sweets.”

She leaned back in her chair giving me her uh-huh look. “Are you doing this for that reason, Tanley West, or are you doing it because he’s sexy?” She let out a giggle.

“How dare you insinuate I would do that? I mean, yea, he’s beyond sexy. He is a serious sexy all on his own.” I laughed, but continued to convince my partner that what I’d done was the right thing to do. “I’ve heard of his organization before and it really is amazing what he does for people. So, I want to give back in a way, ya know?” I leaned forward, looking at my friend, giving her my most serious stare. “Plus I love horses, you know that, and I’ll do whatever I can to help a child, especially a special needs child have the opportunity to get to experience such an amazing animal.”

Presley just smiled over at me indulgently. “Well, I'm glad we can help in some way, but I'm so leaving it up to you to tell the employees what they have to look forward to next week.”

I laughed as I stood up to head out to the bakery. “Yea, you’re so right. They’re going to hate my ass.”

Presley nodded her head and grinned as she walked out of the office. “Yep, they sure are.”

She doesn’t know how to move on, until a sexy stranger turns her world upside down with a wickedly tempting proposition…

She’ll rescue him from the edge of oblivion. Rock star Dex Callahan swore his days of fame and debauchery were behind him, but the spotlight keeps calling his name. Determined not to fall into his old life, he goes looking for distraction -- and finds an intoxicating red-head with a mouth made for sin. One kiss could never be enough, so Dex offers her a deal: spend one week with him, and she’ll forget her old flame ever existed.

 Together, they’ll ignite a passion that will change them forever…

No rules. No limits. As the whirlwind week of pleasure unfolds, Alicia discovers a desire she never knew existed – and the tortured heart Dex hides behind his charming smile. But can old loves so easily be replaced? And when the week is over, will their bond be strong enough to weather the storm?

Corbin's Bend Blitz with Thianna D #contest #spanking #eroticromance

Today we have Thianna D and Finding Their Bliss, a Corbin's Bend story! She has a rousing interview and there's a tour-wide contest featuring a HUGE gift basket of really great prizes. So enjoy the interview and follow the rafflecopter instructions to enter. 

Follow the Corbins Bend Blitz on Facebook:
Visit the Corbins Bend Blog:



Brent Carmichael loved Corbin's Bend. A small community at the base of the rocky mountains just for spankofiles, he worked tirelessly to make sure everything ran smoothly and that the residents were safe and happy. He never intended to fall in love but when Charmagne Kendle stumbled into his life, he found an attraction he had no intention of fighting.

Char moved to Corbin's Bend after losing her job, her apartment, and her fiance all in one day. She had no idea she was actually moving to a spanking community but with the freedom to explore her secret fetish, she found herself happily upended over Brent's lap.

As their relationship deepened into domestic discipline, her ex appeared wanting her back. Now she had to choose. The rich, handsome, and charming Nathan Korven or former police officer Brent Carmichael. To find her bliss, there was really only one choice.

Thianna D's interview questions! 

Quick round:

Coffee, tea or…what’s your vice?
I’m pretty much a water drinker but when I need an upper, I drink Pepsi.

Favorite Movie:
Oh, hard question…I’d say the original Star Wars (before they added all the graphics) or the first Harry Potter.

Favorite Color:
Teal Blue

Favorite book/author:
Whatever I’m reading at the moment. Truly. It changes constantly. But for my ‘fall-back’ I would have to say either Shakespeare – because who doesn’t love the Bard – or Rolf & Ranger because Falls Chance Ranch feels like home.

How do you feel about bacon?
Ugh. I hate bacon. LOL I’m not much into pork at all, except maybe barbequed pork loin, but bacon? Can’t stand it. Meme away :D

I bet you love this kind of bacon!

The REAL questions…

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m short. There, that’s little. *grins* No, I’ve been writing all my life. From the time I picked up a pencil, I’ve been writing odd stories, usually about creatures from other planets. I still have one I wrote when I was six or seven complete with drawings of said Martian.

Even though I have been in the D/s lifestyle for many years, I didn’t start writing erotic lit until maybe 7 years ago. I found my niche. I love writing romance with heat. Add in spanking with purpose and I’m a happy camper.

What’s under your bed?
A huge plastic container that’s empty – though it used to house all my sex toys which are now in a closet making them easier to reach. No dust bunny colonies, though. I just vacuumed three days ago. 

What comes first, plot or characters?
I’m a pure pantser. I never know what I’m gonna write until pen hits paper or my fingers hit the keys. And once I’m writing, the characters lead everything. If I try to take the story where I want it to go? They stop talking. Bossy little brats. :)

Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process.
I get lost in I’m writing but I’ve learned not to plot out anything. If I do that, my muse takes a holiday and the book never gets written. If I don’t try to imagine what happens next, the book can flow really well.

Oddest thing on your desk?
*Looks around* Not really a fair time to answer that. I just completely redid my bedroom and office. But… Oh! A hard drive from a very old computer that died. The computer’s gone but I’m not sure how to destroy the hard drive, so it just keeps tagging along. I should draw a happy face on it and name it Fred.

What’s your most interesting writing quirk?
Errrr. I have no idea. It might be the fact that I cannot plan anything out. Or, no. Probably the fact that I always feel as though I’m the first reader of any story I write. When a story flows, I never feel as though I am writing. It’s like inspiration goes through the ether directly into my fingers and my eyes see it as it comes to life on the page.

What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in?
I actually write in several genres. My favorite thing about spanking romances is delving into the D/s parts of their relationship. And where else can a person actually say they make a living writing about their own lifestyle. :)

What is the hardest thing about being an author?
It’s a very tough job. We don’t just have to write, but we have to market, find a publisher, and really beat the street to get our books out there. I think most of us would admit we look forward to the day when our books are ‘big’ enough that we can hire someone else to do everything else so we can just write.

What’s the easiest thing about being an author?
Doing what I love. Seriously, I wake up every morning knowing I get to do what I was made to do. It is the best feeling in the world.

What do you wish someone had asked you for an interview question? Here’s your chance to get the soap box out!
Oh, now you’re gonna make me think? Shame on you! *grins* Hmm, How about – if you could choose to be the heroine in your book, would you?

OH yeah. I’d be Charmagne in an instant. I would have to say I feel the same way about most of my heroines. I’d take their places.

Thianna D is an author of erotica and erotic romance, many of her books either domestic discipline or BDSM in nature. She loves to write about the emotional aspects of these kinds of relationships.
Finding Their Bliss came about from her fantasy about a perfect community where spanking and loving discipline were the norm. She was thrilled when eight other authors joined in to create the Corbin's Bend series, a set of erotic spanking novels and novellas.

Tesla’s Imprint
by Kimberly Adkins


BLURB for Tesla's Imprint...

Some things just can’t be erased.

Simon’s visions of a little girl are the only memories he has. Like an imprint on his heart, the visions cling. Who is she? Who is he for that matter? Tracked and hunted across the world, and in possession of a device that sets him apart from time and space, danger follows him at each turn.

He never meant to drag Tess into his drama. But with one slow, seductive dance in a candlelit night­club, that’s exactly what he’s done.

Tesla’s own heritage is a mystery in itself. Born of wealth into a corporation with no paper trail, she’s called back to take the helm. But what’s the nature of the business she’s supposed to lead? And how does it connect her to Simon?


EXCERPT for Tesla's Imprint 

She was so close to him, her confidential whisper hot against his cheek. He could feel the satin sleeves of her robe brush against the back of his hands as he held her fingers possessively. He believed her – every word. God help his soul if he was wrong, but he didn’t care. He would tell her his only secret.

“We both must have been here as children. I think I remember you,” Simon said in the same hushed tones she used. “We played together on the lawn. You laughed at me, always teasing. Do you remember me too?”

Tess froze in his arms the moment the confession left his mouth. Her eyes looked stunned and then panicked before she pulled away. He wasn’t able to gauge her emotions as she let her hair fall over her face to cover her reaction. He felt more helpless than he did the first day he woke at the hospital with amnesia. Even if he wanted to take his secret back, he couldn’t. Was his revelation so horrible that it could cost him the small amount of trust he thought he’d built with her?

“Tess, just look at me.” He lifted her chin with his fingers, taking the chance he wouldn’t spook her with such a bold move.

Please let the bond I felt with her at the start mean something, Simon thought. She leveled her chin and there was resolution in her eyes. He could feel her strength and determination and it was damn sexy.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Kimberly Adkins is an author and artist who spends her spare time working on worm hole theories so she can go back in time and enter Star Gate’s ‘Get in the Gate’ sweepstakes as many times as it takes to win.

Says Kimberly of romance, “Fate lines up to reward the faithful who believe that love holds a power beyond our understanding and dreams have a chance to come true.”

Interview With Kathleen Ann Gallagher and Savannah's Journey #contemporaryromance #contest

Today we have contemporary romance author Kathleen Ann Gallagher in the hot seat, with an interview and some juicy tidbits about her latest release, Savannah's Journey. She's also giving away an e-book copy of Savannah’s Journey, so stay tuned. Enjoy! 



Interview questions for Kathleen Ann Gallagher...

Quick round:
Coffee, tea or…what’s your vice? Coffee
Favorite Movie: Out of Africa
Favorite Color: Purple
Favorite book/author: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
How do you feel about bacon? I’ll admit bacon temps me, but I stay away from it.

This poor pup wishes he had your willpower! 

The REAL questions…

Tell us a little about yourself.  
I’ve been writing since I was a young girl.  I love to make new friends and especially like to hear from my readers.

What’s under your bed?  
I’ve got a family of dust bunnies under by bed. Don’t tell anyone.

What comes first, plot or characters? 
I usually dream up the characters first. The plot follows.

Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process is not very organized. I find myself envisioning my hero and heroine first and their story follows. After I know what they look like, I figure out what they want and what is stopping them from getting it. Then I put together their backstory and all the rest comes as I go along. Sometimes I know the ending before the middles of the story. My muse works in strange ways.

Oddest thing on your desk? 
A picture of my father.

What’s your most interesting writing quirk?
I write better with a cup of coffee in hand while I sit in front of the television.

What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in?
 I write contemporary and paranormal romance.  I love a story where a little magic helps the couple along or an unsettled spirit shows up to add something mysterious to the mix. A contemporary romance is something that can really happen in our lives. Sometimes I draw on past experiences of mine or my friends to come up with a conflict. I get some pretty good conflicts that way.

What is the hardest thing about being an author? 
I find deadlines difficult. I procrastinate until the last minute.

What’s the easiest thing about being an author? 
Being able to work anywhere is a plus.

What do you wish someone had asked you for an interview question? Here’s your chance to get the soap box out! I wish you would have asked me who my inspiration was. I’d tell you it was my father. He was a professional magician.  His love and guidance, along with his zest for life and amazing imagination set me on a path towards pursuing my dream.  

Tell us about your latest release! 
Savannah’s Journey is a contemporary romance about a journalist who finds a chance encounter leads to a season of change.

Blurb for Savannah’s Journey

Now, on her daughter’s birthday, a chance encounter gives Savannah an opportunity to explore a corner of her heart she thought was lost forever.

But before she is free to accept this love, she must face the unsettled issues in her life. Rob’s commitment to climbing the ladder of success and providing a good life for his children, keeps him on the road for days at a time. When he meets the assertive newswoman, desire and passion awaken his broken spirit. Savannah and Rob’s strong attraction is undeniable as they journey to a place where honesty and the power of forgiveness can guide them both home.

Excerpt for Savannah's Journey...

Sensing what was coming next, she held her breath and waited. “Rob, I don’t…” As he tangled his fingers into her hair, she gave a soft sigh. Rob’s advances tugged at her heart, and she found it hard to resist. He captured her protest with his lips. Savannah wanted this, she couldn’t deny it. Her strong physical attraction to Rob overwhelmed her. Her mind kept coming up with numerous reasons why she shouldn’t spend the night with him, but her body had a different opinion and right now her body was winning.
