Author Interview: Buck Naked by Desiree Holt

Sometimes out of the frying pan and into the fire is the best way to burn.

Naked Cowboys, Book 2

Amy Stark has it all together—except for chronic bad taste in men. She’s firmly in hands-off-all-men mode when a flat tire forces her to accept the help of exactly the type of man she’s sworn off. Arrogant, cocky and condescending.

When she runs into him again later that day and then finds out her brother has invited him for dinner, the fire between them has a sizzle of a different kind.

At eighteen, Buck Montgomery left home to make his mark on the bull-riding circuit. He may have had wild success in rodeo but his personal life is in the dust, and while he’s ready to start a new life he’s wary to expose his heart. Buck knows he should tell Amy the truth, but every time he opens his mouth, hers is right there with kisses like molten lava.

When his past resurfaces at the worst possible time, Buck can only wonder if Amy will love the man he has become…or if the man he was will chase her away.

Product Warnings: Contains barnyard language and clap-your-hands-over-your-mama’s-eyes sex between a cowboy with a checkered past and a ranch girl with all the right move

I can't tell how excited I am to have one of the greatest erotic romance writers of all time as a guest on My Reading Obsession, Desiree Holt is an amazing author and I was thrilled to be able to ask her a few questions.

MRO: You have been writing erotic romance for a while, how has it changed from the time you started?

Desiree: For one thing, there is a greater acceptance of it. More people are actually talking about it. More reviewers will review it. More people are willing to give it a try and find they actually enjoy it. For another, the demand for quality is even stronger. You can get away with a lot of things if you have a well-written strong story and characters the readers can connect with. And finally, there is a greater acceptance of graphic language.

MRO: You are a mother and a grandmother what does your family say when asked about your work?

Desiree: They tell people they are really proud of me and they do everything to promote me but they don’t read anything I write. Sex and mom or sex and grandma? Uh uh. Not a visual they want to deal with. But they do tell people how proud of me they are and hand out my business cards. And when people ask them if what I write embarrasses them? They say they arte proud I’m succeeding in a market that has finally gained respectability.

MRO: Do you have a favorite book or series, yours or one you read?

Desiree: I have a couple of favorite books of mine: Rodeo Heat, Once Upon a Wedding , Joy Ride and Stark Naked. I loved he characters and their stories. Favorite series by other authors? Oh yeah. Number One is Joey Hill’s Nature of Desire. After that? Totally opposite-any series by Robyn Carr and Sheryl Woods, and the thriller series by Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.

MRO: Is there a line you wont cross (a taboo) when it comes to the sex in your books?

Desiree: Actually I think I’ve crossed about every line that appeals to me! LOL! Although the more I write BDSM the more extreme I find myself writing about it.

MRO: Where do you see your writing career in 5, 10 years?

Desiree: Hopefully, still doing what I do, turning out stories I love, and hoping to one day hot the NYT Best seller List!

Thanks again for taking the time with us here today Desiree :O)
