A businessman, an artist and a bike in Las Vegas… The possibilities are endless ๐Ÿ˜‰

Erotic romance author, Marina Maddix, is about to share her interpretation of this combo in her book VEGAS KNIGHTS.

Read on to find out how about to enter Marina’s THREE giveaways.

One is exclusive to CABR while links are provided to the rafflecopters for a $10 Amazon GC and a Kindle Paperwhite. ๐Ÿ˜€



Using 120 characters or less (a la Twitter), tell us about “Vegas Knights”.

Big girl Kelly finds the road to love with billionaire biker Rick is full of potholes!

Is there a soundtrack for “Vegas Knights” or did you have one while writing it?

I love music but I can’t listen to it while I’m writing. I could say Elvis was playing in the background but not only would it be cheesy, it wouldn’t be true.

I think Rick would most likely listen to classic rock, since he hangs with a bunch of bikers, but Kelly is softer. I’m sure she wouldn’t mind listening to the classics, but she most likely has a pretty eclectic taste in music.

I could definitely see a wide range of music on her iPod, from Mozart to the White Stripes to Rihanna.


1KnightFallWhat led you to writing this novella?

I started Rick and Kelly’s story in the short erotic romance Knight Fall. Readers wanted more, so I wrote Vegas Knights as a stand-alone novel.

You don’t need to readย Knight Fallย to enjoy Vegas Knights but it’s a hot story and I recently reduced the price to 99 cents.


What was your favourite/most difficult scene to write? Please include an excerpt from it.

Honestly, the excerpt I included on the Amazon page (see below) was the hardest for me to write. I was deathly ill at the time and just wasn’t feeling the smexy! I actually wrote “SEX HERE” as a place holder. LOL!

I waited till after the book was finished to go back and write that scene because I wasn’t even sure if I even wanted it in there. But it turned out to be one of my favorites in the book because it really shows the advancement of their relationship.

eBook or paperback?

eBook all the way, baby!

Fruits or chocolate?

Fruits (ripe Georgia peaches or Bing cherries)

4FredDogs or cats?

Cats (close call)

Ideal getaway?

Anywhere with my husband where it’s just the two of us with no phones, no internet and no TV!

If you could meet anyone from history, living or dead, who would it it be and why?

If I’m staying away from the obvious (Hitler so I can kill him or Lincoln so I can save him), I’d say Roald Dahl. I loved his books (Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, James & the Giant Peach) as a kid, and then I read his grown-up fiction. That fellow was seriously twisted and funny – my kind of guy!

VegasKnightsMedSynopsis of VEGAS KNIGHTS:ย 

After a passionate public encounter with a mysterious and very sexy biker, big girl Kelly Saunders finds herself on the ride of her life. Her ‘Knight on shining armor’ — Rick Knight, billionaire heir to a motorcycle legacy — whisks her away from her soul-sucking corporate job to Las Vegas, where she finds the road to love is treacherous.

As urgent business matters demand more and more of Rick’s attention, Kelly is left to wonder about the future of their relationship. A ruthless betrayal throws her life into turmoil, and a devastating discovery threatens to pull them apart.

Is their love just so much Vegas glitter or is it strong enough to survive beyond the dazzling lights of Sin City? Vegas Knights is the much-anticipated novel-length sequel to Marina’s popular erotic/romantic short story Knight Fall, which is included in this paperback edition!
