We are thrilled to have two amazing authors here today at Sinfully who have popped in to chat about their latest release Roped in. Go check out their interview and don’t forget to enter the giveaway
Hello! Lori and Marie here, talking today about our newest release, Roped In. A couple of days ago, Marie made me (Lori) answer a few questions, so today, I'm turning the tables and putting her on the spot…
Lori: Tell us a little about the secondary characters of Roped In, and whether or not we might see them again.
Marie: I seem to have a fondness for gruff, grumpy, bad boys, and this story is no exception. This time around, I fell in love with Jackson, Graham's roping partner and unrequited love interest. Jackson started out as a bit of an asshole, but as we wrote, I developed a soft spot for him. And yes, we will definitely see him again. J
Lori: Out of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?
Marie: Angelo, of course, because he's so impetuous and irrational and snarky. But I also really loved Dante. He's just so angry and confused and apologizes for nothing. (In fact, he's an awful lot like Jackson.)
Lori: What’s one time or place you’d like to write about, but haven’t yet?
Marie: Hmm… I'm not sure. And honestly, whatever I chose, I'd probably end up warping it. For a while, I wanted to write a western, and I ended up with Oestend (which is sort of like steampunk in the old west, but with a paranormal twist). Then, I wanted to write something akin to Dickens' London, and I did. But I went and added cyber implants. So while I could say I'd like to write a medieval story, I'd probably end up adding space ships or some damn thing.
Lori: Since you made me cop to it … name one irrational phobia you have.
Marie: Earwigs!!! *shudder* Wiggly, nasty little things.
Lori: What are you working on now?
Marie: Right now, I'm not working much at all. I have one WIP, but I'm going so slow, it barely even counts as "in progress." It's a YA (or maybe even MG) adventure story, and would definitely have to published under a different pen name.
Roped In Marie Sexton & L.A. Witt
Publisher ~ Riptide Publishing
Published ~ 20th June 2016
Genre ~ Contemporary BDSM M/M Romance
Graham and his roping partner, Jackson, have been friends since they were boys. They've ruled the rodeo scene for ten years running, but lately, Graham’s heart isn’t in the game. He’s tired of the bruises, the cowboy mentality, and the animal rights activists who picket every event. He's also tired of being in love with Jackson, and nothing’s been the same between them since their disastrous drunken encounter the year before.
Then Graham has a run-in with one of the rodeo protesters, and everything changes. Kaz is young, idealistic, and sexy as hell. But he's also a know-it-all, animal-loving vegan, bent on saving the world one cow at a time. They have next to nothing in common, but Graham can't stop thinking about what might happen if they can stop butting heads long enough to give it a try. Unfortunately, no matter how attracted Graham is to other men, he always panics and runs when the clothes start to come off. But Kaz has an idea for getting Graham past his nerves and into bed.
All they need is a bit of rope.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: This is a re-edited second edition of a previously published title.
Meet Marie Sexton
Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along.
Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.
Meet L. A. Witt
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut . . .
