Welcome to CABR Avery 🙂

Thank you so much for having me!

.

If you only had 10 words to describe BETTING THE BILLIONAIRE, what would you say?

Small town girl versus bad boy billionaire equals a hot read. – I know that’s 11. I totally own up to being a total cheater face. 🙂

.

Tells us about the characteristics of the h/H. How do they ‘fit’ together?

As Keisha says, she and Gabe aren’t just opposite sides of a coin, they’re totally different currencies. At least that how it seams at first, but once they dig a little deeper they see that their commonalities outnumber their differences. Add in some red hot chemistry and yeah, they fit. 🙂

.

What was your favourite scene to write and why?

Favorite scene? Ack! That’s killer. I love them all but if I have to pick, I’m going with this one because it’s all about the want and the denial game we sometimes play. 🙂 In this scene Gabe and Keisha are snowbound together in an auto body shop.

.

EXCERPT:

It took a couple of minutes to find a clean pair of gray coveralls that looked like they’d fit, but she’d finally located some in the supply room. Just in case, she grabbed the First Aid Kit and one of the towels Hud used to protect a car’s interior if he was working inside the vehicle. Better to be safe than sorry.

Taking a quick glance at her reflection in the Thunderbird’s shiny bumper, she pinched her cheeks and puffed her ‘fro. Not that she cared what she looked like. It was habit. Really. Ignoring the twinge in her conscience, she hurried back into the lobby and strode to the closed break room door. She tapped her knuckles three quick times against the wood and turned the doorknob.

“I think this will—“ The rest of the sentence died on her lips.

Gabe stood in the middle of the break room with his shirt off and his jeans unbuttoned. With his fly halfway down, the denim clung for dear life to his hips. The flashlight threw shadows across his bare, muscular chest, but there was no missing his well-defined abs or the brown happy trail drawing her gaze farther down than she had a right to look.

But look she did, because he was damn fine, and it had been a long, long time since she’d seen something so yummy. Her tongue stuck to the roof of her mouth, and she gave up any pretense of being a normal human being who’d had sex in the past six months.

“Thanks.” He held out his hand. When she didn’t move, he grinned. “Or I can stay like this. I’m feeling a lot warmer now.”

.

Was the plot inspired by real life events? If yes, please share it with us. If no, what did inspire you?

I am useless with tools of just about any kind, so there’s no real life inspiration – unless you count the reason why Gabe’s car broke down outside Salvation. That has happened to me before. *blushes*

.

What’s next for you?

The next few months are busy for me. In May the second in my Killer Style romantic suspense series comes out and then in July the first in my contemporary series comes out.

ENEMIES ON TAP is the first story in a three-book series about three sisters who inherit a run down brewery. It takes place in Salvation and Hud will be showing up again. 🙂

I’ll be at the RT Book Lovers Convention in May and the Romance Writers of America conference in July. If any of you are in the area, I’d love to say hi!

Blurb:

If that man calls her one more time…

.

So what if Gabe Campos is a model-dating billionaire who gets Keisha Jacobs hotter than a Ferrari’s engine on the straightaway? He keeps pushing her to sell her family’s furniture business, but she’ll never give in—not unless she wants to give her father a second heart attack.

.

All Gabe should be thinking about is how he’ll finally get revenge on the man who killed his father. But when he meets the man’s daughter, Keisha, instead of focusing on destroying Jacobs Fine Furnishings, he can’t get her warm-whisky voice out of his mind.

.



Forced by a snow storm to spend the night together, their passion ignites. The next day, however, it’s back to business. The only way Keisha can save her family is to win a bet with the billionaire. But neither realized their hearts are part of the bargain…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Avery Flynn picture

.

Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
