FOUR WILDE BROTHERS…ONE WILDE COUNTRY BAND

WILDE RIDERS is the first novel in a spicy new contemporary romance series about four sexy brothers, their small-town bar and their local country band.

WILDE RIDERS can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as part of the SERIES.

Cooper Wilde spent his entire adolescence counting the days until he could escape rural northwest New Jersey. Now at 26, he can’t believe he’s coming back. But his late father’s bar, Haymakers, is in financial trouble and his older brother, Jake, has asked for Cooper’s help.

Riley Smith, 25, is fresh out of her Ivy League MBA program and wants to make an impression on her employer, H & C Bank. Her first solo assignment is a fraud investigation on a business loan they made to Haymakers.

Even though Old Town is less than 90 minutes from New York City, Riley feels like she’s stepped into another world in this remote, one-bar town. Riley can’t wait to do her business and get back to the city as quickly as her sports car will take her…until she meets Cooper Wilde. He’s not like the other guys in this rural town and Riley feels inexplicably attracted to him.

If you like your trucks loud, your beer cold and your men hot…you’ll love WILDE RIDERS.

Author Interview with D.C. Stone @dcstoneauthor Intimate Danger Book Tour

Welcome D.C. to the Bitches Be Writin’ Interview Session.

Where do you get your ideas for your books?

Oooh, good question. Usually the plots of my books are based on cases I’ve come across or studied during my career. In my daytime job, I’m an investigator, and have studied Criminal Justice for sixteen years, so the plots of my books go a bit deeper than you’d see in a normal suspense or thriller. Not to say they are written at the same level (after all there is SO MUCH talent out there), but I hit a bit of the criminal world a bit harder than would be seen in a normal romantic suspense. I also drive a lot of my military romance in much the same way (I served eight years in the USAF) and show what the real world is to a soldier, airman, marine, or sailor.

Who is your favorite character that YOU have written?

I’d have to say, by far, is the guy I’m writing right now. He’s a tortured type of hero: Special Forces Military Dog Handler, one who has been away from his family for so long, who grew up with a rough life, and who has to learn how to rely on others in order to let himself heal. He has this quirky sense of humor, but takes himself entirely too seriously. In case you’re wondering, he’s my hero in book three, Chris, of the Empire Blue series, Intimate Honor.

If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you?

Well, if my arm has to be twisted….it’d be Chris Hemsworth (surprised? I’m not), Jimmy Fallon, and Scarlett Johansson. Eye candy, laughter, and an overall kick ass woman to gab with. What more could a woman ask for?

If your book was made into a movie who would you want playing your characters?

With Intimate Danger it’d be David Gandy (I know he’s used so much, but really, the guy has it all) as Trent Rossi, Kate Beckinsale for Charlese Lopez, and just because he has such a big part in the book, Taylor Kinney as Dwayne Gonzalez (Charlie’s best friend).

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I have many favorite authors, but if I had to choose one to stalk forever, it’d be Julie Ann Walker. She has the right recipe with every book, every time: Humor, sexiness, suspense, and an overall style of writing that really puts you right there with her characters. She always makes me want to pick the book right back up and read it again.

What is the difference between erotic fiction and porn?

Ah, the age old question, no? There was a post I did on this about a year ago, when I had met up with an erotic editor at a conference and we got into this discussion. We were debating on whether romance has a place in erotica, and his response was yes, it did. He said it didn’t matter if romance was there or not, but with erotica, the relationship between the two (or three, four, five, you get it) partners are more built on the sex and chemistry. I read a lot of Joey Hill and Joan Swan and these two ladies get it just right when it comes to erotica and erotic romance. I think the difference between the two (in keeping to answering your question) is while both are designed to turn a reader on, erotic fiction and porn would show sex scene after sex scene with no plot really written in.

How much does your own sexuality come into play when writing erotic fiction?

Eh, I mean, a little of every author normally comes out in their work in some fashion or another. I would say I take more adventures in my writing with the sexuality than I would in my real life. But then again, I have plenty of opportunities to eventually act them out. <winks> Should the need ever…ahem…arise.

What role does music play in inspiring your work?

It plays a big role. Each book I’ve written has been associated with some album or group. And each book takes a feel toward it as well. I remember years and years ago when I was reading The Dark Series by Christine Feehan, I had been listening to Train’s new album, and now whenever I hear them, I think of the series. Same goes for the Twilight series and Timbaland’s new album. It’s nice though, to be able to think back on books I generally enjoyed. Most times, I make a point to list what songs I’ve used to write a book with. For Intimate Danger it was the entire song list for Muse.

Do you feel that having a romantic plot helps or hurts an erotic piece of fiction?

Personally? And this is speaking from someone who HARDLY reads outside of the romance genre, I think it helps it. But that’s just my preference. I don’t like to see meaningless sex scene after scene, unless there is something in the end that’s lead to that to show some sort of character development. Joan Swan just did a somewhat type of “hook up” for the sake of hooking up, in her new release, Ricochet, and I found it to be done superbly done.

Tell us something that would surprise your readers, or something most people don’t know about you.

In my daytime job, I’m known as the Investigative Whisperer, because I get people to tell me their deepest, darkest secrets without thinking twice. <grins>

 

Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?

I’d love to. While I have two books being released this month, Intimate Danger, and What Could Have, they are two extremely different stories. One is based on romantic suspense, and that series will have a total of seven books, with a break off to another series, which will include another six. What Could Have is a Women’s Fiction Military Romance, and is a story about love being lost and found again. Bring the tissues for that one.

Where can readers stalk…um…I mean, find you?

I love stalking. I’ve included the hyperlinks. Please stop by for a daily dose of coffee, and weekly hits of Man Candy on Mondays!

Intimate Danger by D.C. Stoneintimate-danger-2

When FBI agent Trent Rossi arrives to investigate a chain of crimes—devastating murders and violent rapes—an inexperienced small town Detective, Charlie, who’s assigned to assist, finds her desire surging for the agent—only to realize he is the primary suspect.

A sleeping threat has awakened in the small town of Nyack. Crimes in the cozy village, garner the attention of the FBI, who assign two agents to assist Charlie in tracking down the sick and deranged perpetrator. Agents Trent Rossi and Dillon Echols work closely with Charlie, but as the crimes progress, dark secrets begin to cloud the air, blurring the line between who is on the side of the law and who’s against it. Being Charlie’s first major case, she’s unprepared not only for the menacing killer on the loose, but also with the unexpected feelings Trent draws out of her.

While Trent holds secrets, disappears at random, and seems to understand their perpetrator all-too-well, Charlie’s suspicions grow along with the pull she feels toward him. Her attraction could become fatal, yet she does not realize it until it is too late.

A heartbreaking realization.

VBT: Mountains to Climb by T.A. Chase @TaChase

mountainstoclimb_exlarge_PNG-210x336Sometimes the past can be the biggest mountain to climb.

Toby Schwartzel has never forgotten Jensen Brockhoff, the man he loved and the one who disappeared six years ago. He thinks he’s moved on, but when Jensen appears again and wants to explain what happened, Toby realises he hasn’t gotten over Jensen. He’d only built up walls to keep from being hurt again.

Jensen Brockhoff left New York City and Toby Schwartzel for several reasons. All of them had to do with drugs and alcohol. He’s clean now and the only thing he’s addicted to is mountain climbing. His passion for the sport has got him through the last six years. But after a particularly harrowing fall on Denali, Jensen knows he has to go back to tell Toby the truth.

Will Toby and Jensen discover they’d never moved past the love they had for each other all those years ago? Or are the mountains between them too high to climb?

Stepping in the bar was almost like getting hit by a car from the noise. Not that Toby Schwartzel had ever been struck by any kind of moving vehicle. He didn’t think a bicycle counted. He paused in the entrance to give himself a chance to adjust to the sound level and to scan the crowd, searching for any of the guys from the firm.

“Hey, Toby. We’re over here,” Simpson called from one of the back corners.

After acknowledging him with a wave, Toby wound his way to the bar where he ordered one of his favourite microbrews. While he waited for the bartender to pour it, he glanced around, checking out the possible hook-ups. It was Friday night and Toby didn’t have to work during the weekend, so he was looking for a little fun.

“Here you go, Toby.” Gray slid his mug across the wooden surface.

“Thanks, Gray. This is for you.” He slipped a five-dollar bill in the tip jar before taking a sip.

“I see your friend finally dragged himself out from whatever rock he’d been hiding under.” Gray jerked his head over toward the corner where Toby’s gang hung out.

“What friend?” He frowned as he tried to figure out whom Gray was talking about. All his friends were accounted for. Well, that he knew of anyway. He’d been so busy working on closing a big deal for a client during the last three months that he lost touch with a few of them that he didn’t see all the time at the office.

“Brockhoff. Saw him come in with Simpson.”

Someone yelled for Gray at the other end of the bar, so he shot Toby a quick smile before walking away.

Toby was frozen to the floor. What the fuck is Jensen Brockhoff doing back in town? Why the fuck hasn’t he called me in six years? The bastard couldn’t be bothered to tell me he was leaving. All I got was some ridiculous email about needing to get clean. Now he didn’t worry about letting me know he’s back. I should just leave.

His phone vibrated in his pocket and he pulled it out to see he had a text from Simpson.

Get your ass back here, fuckhead.

He should’ve known Simpson wasn’t going to let him leave.

I think I’m heading home.

Sighing, he pouted as he sent that reply. He’d been eager to relax, drink and take some stranger home to fuck him into his mattress. It’d been a while since he’d had sex with someone else. Lately, it had been his hand and his dildo.

Fuck no! Brockhoff isn’t here to see any of us. He wants you.

There was a winking smiley face at the end of Simpson’s text.

Toby rolled his eyes, still not convinced it was the best idea for him to go over there. He wasn’t sure he could control his need to punch Jensen in the mouth for leaving like that. Get a fucking grip! It’s not like you were partners or anything. Just friends with benefits. It wasn’t like he owed you anything. Yet he did think that Jensen at least owed him the respect of telling him that he was leaving town, instead of just disappearing. Maybe he shouldn’t feel so bad since Jensen hadn’t informed anyone else either.

Tough. You deal with him, Simpson. I’m going home. I’ll see you in the morning.

He finished his beer then set the mug on the bar, turning to push his way through the growing crowd to get to the door. Just as he was about to make his escape, Simpson stepped in front of him.
