Some people have this image of a writer sitting in a quiet, dark room fingers glued to the keyboard pounding away at the next great story. Sometimes that image is correct. But then there are the research trips!
That’s right I’m on a research trip now for a couple books I’m putting together based in southern Louisiana…in the swamps! So how do you research a swamp book? By visiting one! That’s right, my sister Delilah Devlin and I are happily visiting the swamp via a swamp tour, driving down to Grand Isle, LA and touring some southern plantation houses along the way. And don’t forget the Zydeco bars. Must have some of the crazy Cajun music.
Research can be soooo much fun. Wish us luck. Maybe we’ll even see an alligator!
In the meantime here’s a blurb from my latest Ugly Stick Saloon story
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!
