Guest Post & Giveaway: “Archer” by Debra Kayn

Jul 3

Archer cover.

Debra Kayn:

Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Sasha! You know how much I love coming here, and talking with your readers. 😀

While I was trying to come up with something brilliant to write about, I thought about sexy alpha men who drive and work on classic cars, and are also private investigators…nah, too predictable.

Then I thought I could talk about how to keep the suspense while writing a hot book, but that would’ve been too long and complicated. So, I threw all my ideas away, and decided to go with the following post.

 

FOREARMS AND HANDS

Do you notice a man’s forearms and hands? Don’t you find that part of a man’s body fascinating?

They don’t even compare to a woman’s arms and hands. They’re bigger, stronger, thicker, and oh my delicious, they are sexy!

Of course, Kage Archer, my hero in Archer, works with his hands and around tools every day. His forearms are thick and strong from daily work. When he holds Janie’s hand, she feels safe and protected.

Most of all, for how alpha Kage is and the depth he’ll go to keep Janie safe, when he touches her, she’s reminded of how much he loves her. And when you look down at his fingers entwined with hers, and see that roughened hand, stained black from grease, cradling her with a soft touch…that’s sexy.

How about you? Do you notice a man’s forearms and hands?

She’s on the run . . .

Jane Beaumont currently has in her possession: a cat, a hundred grand in cash, and a pistol.

She’s on her way home to Bay City, Oregon—and away from the nightmare of her violent exboyfriend.

She’ll lay low at Beaumont Body Shop, a car detailer that runs a private investigation agency in the back. The only wrench in her plan is Kage Archer: sexy, strong, and intent on

protecting Jane at all costs. She’s wanted Kage forever, but putting him in harm’s way is a risk she’s not willing to take.

He’s not going anywhere

Kage is no stranger to the dark side of life; his family runs the underground drug scene.

Yet Kage has always walked on the right side of the law. Jane expressed her interest in him years ago, but he pushed her away for her own good.

Now, after learning all she’s endured, Kage can’t leave her side—or hide his need for her. When a frightening situation turns dire, can Kage convince Jane that the safest place to be is in his arms?

EXCERPT:

Her gaze lifted. His jaw ticked. She’d done everything wrong from day one. Going to college meant spreading her wings, and she not only flew, she’d gotten far away from who she was and then latched on to the first person who made her feel good about herself.

Kage tensed, letting his protectiveness show. She laid her hands on top of his. “There was nothing you could’ve done.”

“I could’ve saved you,” he muttered.

She smiled sadly. He had no idea how much she wanted to go back and do the right thing, to call him or Garrett the first time she suspected Scott was not a real estate broker but doing something illegal, but it was too late. “Let’s not talk about it anymore.”

“Okay. I’ll leave it alone for now.” Kage paused as the waitress brought two beers and set them on the counter. He watched her leave, then said, “From now on, you’re with me twentyfour/seven.”

“What?” She shook her head. “That’s not necessary. I’m staying at the house, and—”

“I’m not going to argue with you. It’s done.” He picked up his mug. “Garrett’s agreed.”

“Oh, no, you are not staying with me.” She tried to extract herself from between his legs, but he refused to let her go. “I can’t be around you.”

What he was telling her was impossible. Garrett could watch out for her. She worked at night. She’d stayed safe for the past three weeks. Scott hadn’t called or found her. If Kage stayed with them at the house, she’d do something stupid.

“Really, Kage. You need to stay far, far away from me. For your own safety.” She squeezed his hand. “Please.”

His eyes went soft and he flashed a grin. Her stomach fluttered. She couldn’t even sit beside him without melting.

“I’m serious.” She raked her teeth over her bottom lip.

He kept looking at her in amusement, his smile growing bigger. “Me too.”

Damn him. He wasn’t taking her seriously. She was only entertaining him. “You’ll see. I’ll destroy everything.”

“Baby, get this. I’m not telling you no this time. You got it?” he said.

Heat rushed to her cheeks as she remembered the last time he’d denied her. His gaze softened and she swallowed, overcome with the power and acceptance radiating off him. Her sex pulsed and dampened at what he was implying would happen between them if she let it.

“It’ll never happen.”

His gaze intensified. “It’ll happen.”

“I won’t let it.”

He hovered within an inch of her mouth. “It’s already happened. Now you know. Deal with it.”

Review: “Archer” by Debra Kayn

Jun 15

.Archer cover

 .

Review: Debra Kayn has written a magnificent story about survival and finding love when you thought the chance had passed you by. ARCHER is a

wonderful introduction to the men of Beaumont Body Shop whose stories are featured in the A Hard Body Novel series. 🙂

Jane, or Janie to her loved ones, is in a very abusive relationship at the start of the book. There’s a violent encounter with her drug-dealing boyfriend which sets up the rest of the storyline, as Jane decides it’s now or never if she’s to be free of Scott once and for all.

Fast-forward three months and Jane is back in her hometown, helping out at the body shop at night because she’s afraid Scott might show up in the day and see her there.

Enter our fantastic hero, Kage Archer. He’s loved Janie for years but didn’t feel he was good enough for her in the past. Since then, she’s been in a relationship but Kane was simply biding his time, so when “the one” returns to town, he’s not about to let her slip away again.

Knowing she’s hiding something big, and having been told by his best friend and her older brother Garrett that Janie was abused by her ex, Kage sets about trying to free the woman he knows is buried beneath the shell of a personality left behind after four years of pain and suffering.

Janie may have pushed away her friends and family out of fear and shame but they’re ready and willing to help her fight for her freedom and regain her sense of self. I love the strong, funny supporting characters of Jane’s best friend, Sabrina Wilcox, and the mother figure in her life, owner of the local bar Corner Pocket, Charlene.

I’m really looking forward to Sabrina’s story in the A Hard Body Novel series. 😉

No spoilers here. Suffice it to know there’s some hot loving between Kage and Janie, after a period of adjustment on both their parts to her past and their own history. Boy, was it worth it! 🙂

Kage has a dark past of his own, with family members involved in illegal activities which have an unexpected connection to his life today. What Kane does to ensure Janie’s safety demonstrates what a selfless guy he is, who will always put the ones he loves first. ‘

Thankfully, Kage is able to get away from those who would want to draw him into a life of crime but he’ll always have to be alert.

My verdict – go buy a copy of ARCHER from your favourite retailer. You won’t regret it.

Beyond The Page & Giveaway: “Breathing His Air” by Debra Kayn

Apr 22

.

Happy Release Day to one of the coolest authors I know – Debra Kayn! 😀

.

Breathing His Air cover

 

Hi Sasha, Thanks for having me here today! Yay! I was so excited that you asked me to be on your blog on release day.

Glad to be the one hosting you on release day Debra 🙂

 

If you had to describe your book, BREATHING HIS AIR, to someone on Twitter, what would you say?

Biker romance, controlling, possessive, sexy hero who will become her everything. (Then, I’d follow it up with about four more tweets, because I’m a talker and I can never stick to one tweet)

 

Did you have to do any fun research for the biker scenes? 🙂

Considering we had a motorcycle parked in our living room while I was writing this book, all I had to do was swivel the desk chair. My whole family rides, there’s always a motorcycle being worked on, and for some reason men think that the temperature in the house is “perfect” when detailing and working on motorcycles. Besides that, we live in the Pacific Northwest and have a lot of motorcycle clubs in the area, so the riders kept me motivated.

 

Tell us about your favourite/most difficult to write scene in the book.

Definitely the scene when Tori hears a gunshot at Cactus Cove, the local biker bar, was the most difficult. It was at this point that I realized there was something huge going on in her head. I knew why she was reacting the way she did, but she had yet to tell her secret on the pages. Her secret is shocking and horrifying, but she’s a stubborn heroine who held on as long as she could.

EXCERPT:

“Babe?”

 

Motionless and despondent, she sat curled into a ball. Her hair fell over her face,

hiding it from his view. He cupped the top of her head. She whimpered. His fist

tightened. This was not the confident woman who was silly enough to bring him cookie

dough or give love advice to a group of roughneck bikers.

 

“Sh.” He dropped to his knee. “It’s me, Rain.”

 

Her arms were wrapped tight around her knees, holding them to her chest. He left his

hand on her. “Tori, you need to come out. I need to see if you’re hurt.”

 

No response. Not even an attempt to pull away from his touch. His chest tightened.

Not knowing what had sent her hiding into his office, he struggled with which direction

to take that would help her the most.

 

Determined to get Tori spitting mad at him again, he took the power out of her hands.

 

“Get up.”

 

She squeezed even tighter. He rubbed his arm across his mouth and spoke louder.

 

“Now, babe. Get up.”

 

She jerked upward, smashing his hand against the top of the desk. He rubbed her hair,

protecting her head in case she tried to retreat again. “You’re in my office.”

 

She turned and stared at him. The blank expression, the glossy eyes, the dry cheeks

took him by surprise. He quickly studied her face, looking for injuries. Finding none, he

gripped her arm and hauled her off the floor in the gentlest way possible.

 

Her legs supported her, but she stood lifeless in front of him. He cupped her face in his

hands, forcing her chin up, and studied her eyes. Both pupils stayed dilated even though

all the lights in the office were on.

 

“Tori?” he said.

 

She grabbed on to his vest. “He’ll kill you,” she whispered. “Hide.”

 

If you were offered a TV or movie deal, which would you choose and why? Who would play your characters?

Movie deal. Give me that once-in-a-lifetime shot at hitting it big time. Plus, I think an action figure of Rain would be pretty cool on my desk. I could sit him on a little motorcycle and putter him around the keyboard when I have writer’s block.

I’d pick Jessica Alba to play Tori while my easy, easy pick for the character of Rain would be Angel. He’s a birthday stripper in Israel who I think should come to the US and become a cover model for all my biker romance books.

Oh my! 😉

Angel's photo

 

TRIVIA

 

Favourite snack while writing?

Either peanut M&M’s or wasabi peas

 

Chocolate or fruits?

White chocolate

 

Ideal getaway?

Road trip, camping…I love to rough it!

 

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

I’d want to meet Albert Einstein, just to mess with his head. I think he’s way too serious and I’d like to know if he could keep up with my habit of changing the subject in the middle of a sentence. I’d try to make him laugh.

 

BUY the book at Amazon

Breathing His Air coverBREATHING HIS AIR:

She is love advice in a coffee shack, he’s protection in a biker bar. When her past meets his present it’s a killer cocktail that might get them shot, stabbed or otherwise dead.

TORI BALDWIN spends all her time traveling the states, running a mobile Coffee Shack and handing out love advice with every cup. She’s staked her rig in the parking lot of Cactus Cove—a local biker bar by all appearances— and plans to stay put for three months. Just long enough to make some money, without making any friends, before she moves to her next destination as she tries to stay ahead of a painful past.

RAIN BROOKSHIRE is the leader of the Bantorus motorcycle club, and owner of the Cactus Cove in the small town of Pitnam, Washington. He wants the Lagsturns, a rival-bad-news motorcycle club, to leave town before they infect his town with trouble. He doesn’t trust them after his ex-girlfriend hooked up with Sanchez, the Lagsturns’ leader, and screwed him over.

With bullets flying and the Lagsturns putting on the pressure, the only way to keep Tori safe—since she refuses to leave town—is for Rain to claim her as his woman. She has no idea that Rain’s played his hand for all to see in the biker world. It doesn’t help that Tori exhibits the three ideal classifications of his ideal woman—Classy, Sexy, and a total Goof— and he can’t help but posture and lay down the law. But, when it appears Tori’s life is in danger, and the Lagsturns are innocent, he isn’t going to let the law stop him from keeping his woman safe.
