Kissin' Tell Blog Tour: Lorelei James

Welcome everyone! I am so very excited to have Lorelei James here for a short interview.  I was lucky  enough to be part of the Kissin' Tell blog tour. So please, leave a comment and tell us that you were here!  I'm sure Ms. James would appreciate it.

Welcome, Lorelei. I'm so glad to have you here!  

1. What's a typical writing day for you?
Drink a pot of coffee before 8 a.m while answering email, and doing online stuff, etc.. Work out, shower, then go upstairs away from my computer with internet and work until lunch or until my youngest daughter gets home from school. Take a break when my hubby comes home and then depending on what deadline stage I'm in, I usually go back upstairs after supper and work until 10 or 11 or later.

2. If you could spend a day with anyone in history, living or not, who would it be, and what would you do?
I would spend the day with any of my grandparents—who are all deceased—and I'd actively listen to them when they talked. Kids tune so much of that out and a lot of interesting oral family history gets lost.

3. What draws you to the genre you write in?
I like writing about the modern day west and the area I live in, keeping a realistic bent and not glorifying how hard it is to live in rural America and be beholden to the land. With writing erotic romance, it seems I have a lot of leeway in getting to explore all facets of a couple's sexuality, and that keeps my interest, and hopefully the interest of readers.

She once led him around by a string. Now he’s the one holding the reins.

Georgia Hotchkiss swore wild horses couldn’t drag her back to Sundance, Wyoming. So it’s ironic she’s forced to take a rodeo PR job in her former hometown—right before her ten-year class reunion. The only thing worse than facing her cheating ex-husband and his pregnant wife? Showing up to the reunion without a date. Fate smiles on her when she runs into her former classmate and current cowboy hottie Tell McKay. With his infectious smile and fun-loving ways—not to mention his banging body—he’s the perfect solution to her problem.

Tell McKay had it so bad for Hot Lips Hotchkiss during high school that he let her run roughshod over him. But he is no longer that easily manipulated boy—these days he’s earned a reputation with the ladies that lives up to the McKay last name. He agrees to escort her to the reunion with one stipulation; that Georgia proves she has left behind the goody-goody cheerleader of the past—by sharing his bed.

Their sexual chemistry flashes so bright, they barely notice that the reunion has come and gone, and now they’re tangled up in another dreaded “R” word—relationship. But if Tell wants to get the girl this go-around, he’ll have to come up with a whole new set of knots to tie up her heartstrings.

Warning: Contains a sweet talkin’ wild cowboy with a wagon load of crazy-hot sex fantasies and the mad bedroom skills to back up his claims.

Kissin' Tell Excerpt:

Tell McKay had a boner.
In history class.
At least it hadn’t happened in math, where he’d have to stand at the board to solve a problem and then everyone could see…his problem.
His cheeks burned imagining how much that would suck.
He shifted in his seat and blamed his situation on the distraction seated in front of him.
The oh-so-hot, oh-so-out-of-his-league, sweet, sexy and amazingly perfect class beauty, Georgia Hotchkiss.
Yeah, Georgia was always on his mind.
She was something else. A petite powerhouse. The ultimate diversion. Those damn short, damn tight cheerleading skirts that showcased her athletic body. If he angled his head to the side, he caught a glimpse of her muscular thigh instead of the back of her head. Not that the view was bad. Her hair was as black and shiny as a crow’s wing in the sun. Add in her china white skin, full ruby lips and Georgia could be a modern day Snow White.
You’re a real poet, McKay. More like a fuckin’ pervert. Think about something else.
Startled by the husky rasp of his name, he glanced up from his notebook, right into pale, icy blue eyes that made him stammer like a fool. “W-what?”
Did you do the homework assignment?”
Be cool. Do not imagine Hot Lips Hotchkiss whispering that in your ear. “Yep.”
Her mouth curved into a smile. He wondered if the gloss glistening on her lips was flavored. Would it taste like bubblegum? Peaches? Ripe black cherries?
Thank God. Can I copy it?”
Tell managed to rip his focus from her plump lips. Before he could speak, she cranked the charm on high.
Please? You let me do it before. And I didn’t have time because I was…”
Sucking face with your asshole boyfriend?
