Interview and Giveaway with Lorelei James

Posted August 6, 2018 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Featured Authors, Front Page, Interviews / 28 Comments

We are so excited to have one of our all-time favorite authors here on the blog today.  We’ve been fans of Lorelei James since the days before Under the Covers started.  Throughout the years, she’s introduced us to amazing characters and endearing families that today we feel as if they are part of our very own family.  Today, we are chatting about her latest release, RACKED AND STACKED (out August 7).  Please give her a warm welcome to UTC.

Welcome back to Under the Covers, Lorelei! We’re so excited about RACKED AND STACKED! Can you please tell us what you’re most excited about with this release?

Thanks for having me back 😊 I’m most excited about this release because it’s been a year and a half since the last full-length Blacktop Cowboys book released. It was great fun to be back in Muddy Gap, Wyoming.

What would you say makes Riss stand out against the other heroines you’ve written?

Riss truly is one of those women who DOES NOT CARE what other people think about her. She lives her life on her own terms. She’s got three older brothers so she’s resistant to being told what to do…whereas Ike has three younger sisters and he’s used to be being in charge. It makes for an interesting dynamic between them.

Describe Ike in three words

Bossy blond charmer

This is an opposites attract novel.  What is your favorite trope to read?

I love tropes mostly because I love putting my own spin on them…my favorite one to read, mostly because I haven’t written one…is an epic quest. That’s a trope, right?

What are five things you are currently loving that aren’t book related?

  • Loving summer in South Dakota and heading to my recharge zone on our boat which is docked at a gorgeous mountain lake that’s 30 minutes from our house
  • Spending time gardening. I’m so happy that most of my plantings survived the winter!
  • We just vacationed in in Italy for two weeks and I love going back through the pictures and talking about the trip because it was amazing
  • I’ve been buying lots of crafting books and supplies in the hopes that I can do some other creative work other than writing fiction
  • Looking forward to traveling once I’m caught up with my writing projects since none of my kiddos live in state anymore.

If the characters from your book could actually meet and go on a double date with another fictional couple (not from one of your books), who do you think they would hit it off with and from what book are they?

Riss and Ike already are friends with Tobin and Jade from Hang Tough, Blacktop Cowboys book 8…and since Riss is very proud of the fact she’s NEVER dated, I don’t see that a double date would ever be in their future.

Could you share some tips on writing a good sex scene?

A good sex scene doesn’t have to be long, it just has to fit the characters motivations at that point in the story. That’s why sometimes it’s a slow burn, sometimes it’s WHAM! a hot scene right off the bat. Honestly, I never know going into a book which way the characters will lead me and that’s part of the fun.

What’s the last book you read that you would recommend?

The last series I adored was A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. Outstanding writing and world building. I gobbled up the first three books in a week, and since they are LONG, I really got nothing else accomplished. A perfect read for those who love epic fantasy with romance.

What can we expect from you next?

I just finished I WANT YOU BACK the next book in the Need You/Want You series, which will release in April 2019 and I also wrote the mini-synopsis for Blacktop Cowboys book 10 which is slated for an August 2019 release.

We can’t wait!!!  Thanks so much for sharing with us today.

My pleasure 😉

Racked and Stacked
by Lorelei James

BOOK INFO


Released: August 7th 2018
Series: Blacktop Cowboys #9
 

Growing up with three older brothers, Larissa "Riss" Thorpe defines the term tomboy--a moniker that never mattered to her until she crossed paths with sexy cowboy playboy, Ike Palmer. His declaration that he prefers his women soft and feminine is the one benefit to becoming his business partner. Since Riss is obviously not his type, there's little chance they'll mix business and pleasure when they're in close quarters on the road together.

Former cattle broker Ike Palmer was ready for a new chapter in his life when he partnered with Riss, a contrary redhead who lords her mechanical abilities over him at every turn. Ike raised his three younger sisters; he knows a thing or three about how women work. The problem is...Riss is unlike any woman he's ever met.

With the odds stacked against them, Riss and Ike will have to choose between the stubbornness that keeps them apart and the fiery attraction that could lead to something more...
