I also had the pleasure of interviewing Lorelei for the 1,001 Dark Nights Monthly Newsletter.

Here is a snippet:

I adored Roped In. Sutton Grant was sweet, shy, and sexy while London Gradsky was a total spitfire I would love to hang out with. What made you choose Sutton and London for your 1,001 Dark Nights novella?

I adored Sutton in TURN AND BURN, he was such a great friend to Tanna—and it intrigued me that he wasn’t a wild cowboy on the rodeo circuit like so many of the male characters I’ve written. As much as I love all of my secondary characters, not all of them have enough conflict to carry a full length book, so I knew Sutton’s story was perfect for a “slice of life” novella. And London just blew onto the page, the in-your-face cowgirl with a smart mouth who was the perfect match for the laid-back steer wrestler.

Ok….so you mention a whole closet full of cowboy boots. Do you have a favorite pair?

I have a new pair that are mango-colored embroidered with flowers that are awesome. I’ve been eyeing a new pair with fringe but I’ve resisted temptation…so far.

The book titles for your Blacktop Cowboys Series and Rough Riders Series are some of my favorite out there. Do you have a hard time choosing a title that reflects what the story is about?

I have to have a title before I can even start a story. With the Rough Riders series some of the characters’ names were great for a play on words in the titles (RAISING KANE, ALL JACKED UP, CHASIN’ EIGHT) and I’m such a sucker for song titles as book titles. With the Blacktop Cowboys, I like using the ___ and ___ theme, then mix it up for the next book and find a western word or phrase. Sometimes I have to fight for my titles. My NAL editor wasn’t crazy about HILLBILLY ROCKSTAR, but she agreed to let me use it and she grew to love it. I think it helped that the title fit the character so much. I originally had HORSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR as the title for RODE HARD, PUT UP WET. And uh, yeah, my editor at the time nixed that title and I’m grateful.

You have a touching real life experience that made it into Chasin’ Eight about an adoption in your extended family. Have you ever heard from any readers saying you’ve maybe helped them with a personal experience of their own?

I get tons of email from readers who are happy to tell me that reading my books have made them grab onto their significant other and have a more satisfying sex life. I also get readers who’ve contacted me and relayed their experiences when something I’ve written about strikes a chord with them. Most recently a woman’s husband had been put in a medically induced coma, like Carolyn McKay in COWBOY TAKE ME AWAY, and she said when he came out he could tell her things she’d said to him while she sat by his bedside. Those types of things are so gratifying to hear because readers are happy that I’ve touched on an experience in their lives that they can relate to.

About the author: 

A bit about me: When I’m not squirreled away behind my laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, I can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until I’m a pretzel, shootin’ my .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid’s taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin’ up vittles.
Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
