The Appeal of Country Boys (and a Giveaway!)

I'll be the first to admit I have a thang for a Southern bad boy. When a handsome man with a drawl gives me a wink, I melt. Add a tan and a nice physique a'la Matthew McConaughey and I'm a complete goner.

My husband and I recently watched the movie Mud, one of our favorites, for a second time. The film stars McConaughey and is set in the Mississippi Delta just like HER WICKED CAPTAIN, my first River Rogues novel. I couldn't help being reminded of my story's swarthy, country bad-boy hero, Rory. In the movie, McConaughey is a desperate criminal in love with the wrong woman (played by Reese Witherspoon).  It's a great flick with lots of beautiful scenery. The River Rogues series follows frontiersmen who live on rivers during the 1800s. Rory, the first hero, is a riverboat captain and gambler...and yes, he definitely has Southern swag and charm!

This month, I'm preparing for the release of my next River Rogues novel HIS MOST WANTED (Nov 2015) with a giveaway on Goodreads. I'm giving away a SIGNED copy of the first book in the series, HER WICKED CAPTAIN, to one lucky Goodreads reader. 

I hope you'll visit Goodreads and enter the contest. Then add HER WICKED CAPTAIN to your to-be-read list, as well as the sequel, HIS MOST WANTED

Happy reading, y'all!
