BLURB:


Hunter:
My call-sign is GHOST. My roadname, too. I keep my head down, stay off the grid, fly under the radar. I’m the rough, gruff, good guy who does bad things for pay.

JB is my most recent mistake. The MC babe is innocence wrapped up in a rockin’ body. Don’t get me wrong, she has a wicked side, too. She’s kickass in bed, when we make it that far. But she’s the ultimate wholesome good girl, and I don’t want to dirty her up.

Hey, no one said life was all fun and games, right?

JB:
Good girl? I prefer to think of myself as a rebellious hellion. I live my life like I ride my bike: carefree, in your face, and full throttle. My soft side? Well, that’s reserved for my job.

I’m not looking for love, and I certainly don’t need any relationship complications. Too bad complicated is the only way Hunter comes. 

He’s a quiet, deadly storm. He prowls. He hunts me. He wants me. He’s sexy, sinful . . . secretive. Hunter will turn my life inside out no thanks to his dangerous past about to come back and bite us both in the ass.

Who’s gonna save us now?

Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.

Author’s Interview Questions
1.       Where did the idea come from for the book?

Hunter and the Bad Boys of Retribution MC series is a spinoff from my Carolina Bad Boys series. Hunter’s is the first book because he made his appearance in Steele: Into Your Heart. I had to give him his own story because he’s such a sexy mysterious dude. He’s hiding a lot of secrets.

2.       What genre does your book fall under?

Contemporary erotic romance combined with MC romance, and military. I like to mix things up!

3.       Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?


Ooh! For Hunter . . . that would have to be Angelo Cruz! I’m not sure if he can act but *coughs* I could probably overlook that. He has the right look: https://www.pinterest.com/berdie294/angelo-cruz/

JB (she’s Hunter’s love interest. You’ll find out what the initials stand for in the book *wink_wink*). Hmm. Oh, I know! Selena Gomez. Yuss!


4.       What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Danger comes in many forms but Hunter’s not prepared for the extreme danger innocent MC babe JB represents to his heart—a heart he thought was off limits.

5.       Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Self-published! I publish all my contemporaries.

6.       How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It’s taking me about two weeks to write the first drafts for each of these MC books. I’m a fast writer, but a tedious editor.

7.       What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I’d say Kristen Ashley’s Motorcycle Man books, with a high dose of humour and a southern setting to go with the grit and sex.

8.       Who or What inspired you to write this book?

My good friend and fellow author Tera Shanley definitely motivated me to write this series. She’s got a lovely, vibrant spirit, a go-getter attitude, is super supportive, and one of the hardest workers I know.

9.       What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

The entire Bad Boys of Retribution series is coming out this summer! Boom! And each book has a completely different feel and trope.

10.   In general do you like to talk about you writing and published books or are you very close-lip about it? If no why?

I love talking about my writing to readers, friends, and fellow authors, sharing ideas and exchanging advice. I value my readers’ opinions and often ask them questions.

11.   What book/s are you currently writing and what is it about?

I’m currently editing the second book in this series, Kinkaid, and writing the third book, Bo. After that? One more book to go! Coletrane.

12.   What is the writing process like for you?

It really depends on what book I’m working on. Currently with the MCs I’m ramping right through them. As I said above, the editing process takes a bit longer for me because while writing I don’t stop to make sure everything is perfect, and I leave a lot of blanks just to keep moving.

On longer novels, I’m a bit more systematic and I plot. However, no plot is laid in stone. All stories grow organically.

For every book I definitely work in all the chapters at the same time, filling in sex, dialogue, black moments as they come to me—yet I still write through the chapters start to finish.

13.   How did/do you teach yourself to write?

Mostly through trial and error, having a few amazing editing experiences that really opened my eyes to my bad writing habits, and an online course that totally changed my perspective on outlining—Deep Story by Carol Hughes.

14.   What aspect of the craft do you think is the most difficult to learn?

Well, I’m not sure it’s something you can learn or not, but I think one of the most important things to master is writing with an entertaining and engaging voice.

15.   What has been the most encouraging comment someone has made about your writing?

Well, since I’m writing like mad to get four books out this summer, one of my wonderful street teamers recently told me my readers wouldn’t mind if I wanted to slow down to spend more time with my family.

That was the sweetest thing ever! I’m still gonna bust my ass, but that took a weight off my shoulders. I’m definitely my own biggest slave driver and sometimes my goals are a little bit crazy.

16.   What is the best and/ or worst part of being a writer?

Best thing? Being able to let loose and be creative. Worst part? The looooong hours.

17.   Any advice for struggling writers?

Keep writing. Learn your craft. Don’t skimp on editing. Don’t be afraid of self-publishing, but if you go that route realize you will basically be the CEO of your own company.

18.   What is your favorite genre to read or write?

Fave genres to read are M/M and YA. As for writing, I do M/M, contemporary, and paranormal, and I love them all.

19.   Favorite author?

Ahhh! Trick question. Evil. I cannot choose just one. Currently I have to go with Deborah Harkness, but it changes all the time.

20.   Do you have a favorite spot to read and write? Share a photo if you have.

I love to read outside, and I almost always write in my office, which I call my ‘woman cave’. I absolutely cannot write in public.


21.   What did you do before you became a writer?

I’ve been writing forever. In fact, I wrote my first novel when I was twenty-four, which was *gasp* over fifteen years ago. That story is still hidden away somewhere, never to see the light of day. But before I started pursuing a career in publishing I usually worked with children in a nonprofit capacity.

22.   Was it a life long dream or triggered recently?

I totally wanted to be a librarian when I was little. Truth!

23.   What do you like to do when not writing? 

I like to sleep. No seriously, sleep is gooood. I like to run and workout, too. Okay, that’s kind of a lie. I don’t necessarily love those, but getting in some physical exercise clears out my brain.

24.   Do you have a bucket/ to-do list and would you share at least two things on it?

No bucket list here, at least not yet.

25.   Most daring thing or experience you have done you would like to share?

I think the most daring thing I’ve done was moving to Glasgow, Scotland, knowing absolutely nobody, when I was twenty.

26.   This or that questions:
·         Coffee or Tea –  Tea!
·         Sweet or savory –  Savory.
·         Home make meal or takeouts –  Homemade meals (as long as someone else is cooking)
·         Winter or summer – Summer for sure.
·         Night-owl or Early-Bird –  Definitely a night owl.
·         Telephone or visits –  Visits.
·         Which social network do you prefer?  Facebook! (even though FB does not like me, and I get banned periodically for being a naughty girl)
·         Blogger or website?  Website.
·         What does your family say about your career? Supportive or Clueless  - Supportive!

And Finally
Motto/wisdom in life you live by.
Love what you do and do what you love.

EXCERPT: 

“You’ve got a beautiful cock, Hunter.”

Oh dear God!

“Gonna suck it so good now.”

She slid her lips up one side of my shaft then the other. I watched, out of my head horny.
When her saliva mixed with my precome, she smacked her lips against the engorged purple head. She sucked on me, just to the rim and back.

“Is this what you wanted?” JB looked up with big innocent eyes. “Want to feel dirty with me?”

I held her face between my hands and drove up into her mouth.

After that first touch, I let her blow me how she wanted. My toes curled. My back bowed. I pulled the bottom sheet clear off the bed and struggled to hold back.

She came up for a breather with a smile, holding my cock in her hand. She stroked me, looking at the bulge of veins that stood in relief when she squeezed tighter.

“Can’t get you all the way inside, but maybe you’ll like this.” She flipped her hair forward and wrapped the silky strands around the base of my cock.

She went back to sucking and kissing my tip, stroking my length with her hair. The thought of the smell of my cock on her hair pulled a loud shout from me.

My balls drew up, turned hard, and almost traveled inside my body, my release was so imminent. But Jessica released me, blowing a hot soft stream of breath along my shaft.

“Fuck,” I growled. “Please. Need to come.”

She skimmed her teeth along the helmet of my head, and gently bit down.

My head knocked back.

“My big tough man likes that?” She bit me again. “You like it a little rough?”

The pain was just enough to heighten my senses, the soft lips afterward mind-blowingly intense. “God, Jessica . . . what you do to me should be illegal.”

Author Bio: 

Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavors include the Carolina Bad Boys, a fun, hot, and southern-sexy series.

A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.
