Hello Myla and welcome to Delighted Reader! We are delighted to have you with us today.
Q: If the characters from Boots and Leather were signed for a movie deal, who would you love to play the parts of Libby, Mark and Luke? Why?
Libby – Emma Stone – She’s a red-head and kick-ass like Libby
Mark and Luke – Joe Manganiello (from Magic Mike) – he’s tall, dark and could be made up to look like Kiowa Indian Cowboys. Of course there would have to be a double in the sex scenes since Joe would have to play both twins!
Q: Can you tell us one thing that makes Libby, Mark and Luke fabulous characters?
Libby – She’s a red-head and kick-ass but she’s vulnerable and desperate to maintain her freedom Mark and Luke – appear to be just two fun-loving twins, but they really do care about Libby and want her to be happy. And their tall dark and delicious Kiowa cowboys, how could a girl go wrong?
Q: I saw on your website your older sister is Deliliah Devlin (also a fabulous writer). How often do you two get together to collaborate on the sexy books you write?
I just spent a 4-day weekend with my sister. She lives 4.5 hours away. We LOVE to brainstorm ideas together. When we get together we practically explode with the synergy of our combined ideas. Since we began writing in 2000, we’ve grown so very close as sisters and I wouldn’t trade that for the world. For the record…she’s the older sister! (by 2 years) LOVE HER!
Q: Describe the allure of the Ugly Stick Saloon? Is there a special meaning behind the name Ugly Stick?
Special meaning behind Ugly Stick? Pfsst! Never thought about it. I just liked the name and knew I had to use it. It’s kind of a Coyote Ugly type of bar where the waitstaff have to have a talent and learn to toss bottles. It’s also a place everyone can come to visit friends, have a drink, a bar fight, a dance and fall in love. I enjoy returning to the saloon and all the characters I’ve created who frequent the bar.
Q: What drew you to a heroine on the run from her father?
First it was her Harley. She drives a friggin’ Harley! What’s not to love about a red-head with an attitude who drives a Harley. Then when she kicks a little butt, you gotta love that she’s one tough lady. But she has her sexy side and the twins bring it out in her.
Q: Are there any funny quirks or rituals you must perform before, during or after writing?
I’m a big Diet Dr. Pepper fan. I have to have my cup of ice and my first can of soda beside me before I can begin or the day just doesn’t feel right. Other than that, no quirks.
Q: If I were to order a pizza for us to munch on during this interview, what would be your must have toppings? Pan, hand-tossed or thin crust?
I’m pretty plain-Jane on Pizza. I love me some pepperoni on a thin crust that crunches. But I can go for any kind, any day.
Q: If you were stuck in the west, possibly a deserted saloon, with no one nearby, what five books would you just have to have with you?
One for the Money by Janet Evanowich, Fast Women by Jennifer Cruise, Timeline by Michael Crichton, Simple Jess by Pamela Morsi, Boots and Chaps by Myla Jackson.
Q: What is your next project you are writing?
I’m working on a short story I’ll release self-published that will be the prequel to my October Samhain release BOOTS AND BAREBACK. It’ll be called something like NYC Cowboy. It’s been a busy year for me as Myla Jackson and as Elle James (my other pen name). I’m writing 4 Harlequin Intrigues this year as well as 2 Nocturne Cravings as Elle James. I’ve been completely swamped and loving it!
Thank you Myla for joining us today. We had an awesome time with you!
Boots and Leather
by Myla Jackson
This biker chick longs for the open road…until two Kiowa cowboys shift her gears.
Eight months ago, Libby Jones parked her motorcycle in Temptation, Texas, to work at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Since then she’s grown to love the bar’s feeling of family, but now it’s time to hit the road. The longer she stays, the greater the risk her father’s investigators will track her down.
Yet she can’t resist taking the Gray Wolf twins up on their offer to go riding on their ranch. Even though getting involved should be the last thing on her mind.
Ever since Libby landed at the Ugly Stick, Mark and Luke Gray Wolf have been trying to capture her attention. She’s blown them off at every turn, until now. Their plan: expose her to the delights only twins can provide—and persuade her to stay for the long haul.
Libby’s longing for a life she can’t have makes her delay her departure just a heartbeat too long. Her hesitation gives her past time to walk through the saloon door, and all hell to break loose. Now the twins have a fight on their hands to teach her that being free doesn’t mean she can’t let go of her heart.
Warning: Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon. Pull up a chair and set a spell, you’re gonna wanna hear this tale about two hot Kiowa twins and a leather-clad biker chick. Multiple partners, a little BDSM, and one skinny-dippin’ scene so hot it’ll make the pages sizzle!
Audrey laughed. “Did Mark and Luke talk you into an outing?” She patted Libby on the back. “Babe, you’re in for a real treat.”
“That’s what they said.” A tingle of excitement threatened to grow inside Libby’s body.
A secret smile lifted Audrey’s lips. “The two of them are amazing together.”
Her frown deepening, Libby glanced across at her boss. “And you know that how?”
Audrey’s lips quirked upward in a smirk. “Did I tell you the story of how they got me and Jackson together?” She slipped her arm around Libby’s shoulder and walked her slowly into the bar.
“No, you didn’t.”
Audrey touched a finger to her own lips. “Hmm. Maybe I shouldn’t, and let you discover for yourself why those two are phenomenal.”
Libby’s core tightened, a wash of moisture trickling out of what she’d thought was her dried-up pussy, shocking her more than she cared to admit. She marched the rest of the way to the bar and took up her bar towel. “I’ve a good mind to cancel.”
“No way,” Audrey called out.
Her heart sped and pressure pushed against her chest, the sure signs of the beginnings of an anxiety attack.
Audrey laid a hand on her arm. “You have to go on that picnic. I promise you won’t regret it.”
Forcing a smile for the next customer, Libby muttered beneath her breath, “I think I already am.” Yeah, yeah. Then why did a shiver of anticipation spread throughout her body?
