I was lucky enough to get my hands on R.G. Alexander’s upcoming urban fantasy Burn With Me from Samhain August 27th. I love it so much!!! I read it in two sittings and am going to read it again before the sequel cause it’s THAT good. 🙂 I’m posting my vlog review on Saturday.
I invited R.G. to come play with me cause I luvs her. Enjoy our silly… and make sure you enter to win her contest just for us Tartlets. 🙂
The Queen of Tarts

Me: R.G! Darlin’ I’m so glad you’re here. *sigh* It’s snuggle time. 😉 I adore you to the muchness I hope you know.
You are made of awesomesauce! Like the sugar and spice and everything nice? Yep. You. Plus and extra dash of crazy. <G> Two new releases in one month? Have a cookie.
*shoves cookie plate at Rachel*
Random question… Does your Cookie like Cookie Monster?
RG: The feeling is mutual *takes cookie* As for my Cookie, he likes my Cookie Monster pajama bottoms lol, but the nickname leans more toward Gabby Hayes than Sesame Street. As in salty cook on the trail. He trained as a chef (gotta love it) though he does-in fact-have a weakness for cookies as well-hence-the name 🙂
Me:<g> Love that! And more cookies….
So you’re first book August birthday was on August 17th for Big Bad John. I made you a commercial. 😉
RG: Oh goodness, am I blushing? Yes John is…well I don’t do many contemporaries, and I’ve never written a single contemporary that wasn’t ménage or more. But John didn’t need anyone else’s help. You can ask Eden and Robin, my fellow Smutketeers, I was blushing and muttering about how dirty he was the whole time I was writing. *G* But he is also undeniably a hero. He’s always known what he wants. It’s always been Trudy. You can’t help but fall in love with that.
Big Bad John
Release date: August 17th, 2013 |
Series: It’s Bigger In Texas
R.G. Alexander (Author)
Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip…
Trudy Adams never planned on going home again. Not to that sleepy little Texas town where everyone knew her business and thought she was trouble. She ran away to California years ago, and now, after what has felt like a lifetime of struggling, her lucky break might finally be around the corner.
And then she got that email.
John Brown has been waiting patiently for Trudy to return, but his patience has run out. He’s had years to think about all the things he wants to do to her, and he’s willing to use her concern for her brother, her desire to help her best friend get her story, and every kinky fantasy Trudy has to show her who she belongs to.
The explosive chemistry between them is unmistakable. But will history and geography be obstacles they can’t overcome? When Trouble makes a two-week deal with Big Bad…anything can happen.
Warning: READ THIS! BDSM, explicit sex, voyeurism, accidental voyeurism, voyeurism OF voyeurism with a sprinkle of m/m, exhibitionism, ropes, cuffs, gratuitous spanking, skinny dipping, irresponsible use of pervertables…and a big, dirty man who will melt your heart.

Me: And your second book this August is your new erotic urban fantasy Burn With Me out on the 27th. *sigh* I need to tell you how much I love, Love, LOVE Burn With Me! I am hooked now on Aziza’s and NEED more.
I love your fresh take on Jinn, your layered world building and how the story sang to me… of fire and death and life…
And now I’m singing More More More (didja hear the rebel yell in that?)
RG: I did. I’m SO HAPPY you liked it and I can’t wait to see your review vlog on Saturday! Aziza Jane is in me lol and I am working as we speak on giving you more!
Me: So hon… because I desperately need you to write faster I won’t keep you much longer. But I am going to ask you 10 very important question.
The Book Tart Quickie
1. What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Coffee maker. Hands down. Which is weird because I keep breaking them and having to buy new ones. 😉
2. If you could see any band, which would you like to see?
I would like to see my imaginary band from the Rockband game- Iron Gypsy…and I would be the lead singer 🙂
3. Is it criminal to wear socks with sandals?
I would say yes, but my BIL did that when we met him, and he’s a pretty decent guy and got the girl in spite of his fashion. Eventually my sister convinced him to take his socks off, so he was never arrested for his crimes.
4. If you were ruler of your own country what would you call it?
HARD question! I can’t say Brigadoon or Atlantis-they’re already taken. And Rachelstan would just be vain. How about ChoYOwA? (Choose your own adventure) I would be a kind ruler and let the people choose whether they wanted to be good, evil or chaotic neutral 🙂 But everyone would be required to participate in the country’s annual Doctor Who marathons and spend Saturdays at the karaoke bars that I’ve placed on every corner. lol
Oh *claps* I want to live there!
5. Do you know CPR?
I used to, all those years ago when I was a nurse. It’s been longer than I’m willing to admit and most of it has leaked out of my brain to be replaced with werewolves and chocolate pudding. I’m not certified, but I’m hoping the knowledge is still knocking around somewhere in my brain in case of emergency.
6. Have you ever written a love letter?
I actually have a story about that. When I was seventeen I was a friend’s Cyrano. She had a crush on older college guy and she was shy. I sent him a love poem/letter every day for two weeks, putting everything she felt for him and all the things I’d imagined she might in those letters. I got very into my role as matchmaker. By all accounts he was extremely curious and impressed. My only regret is that it didn’t end as well as it had in the movies after the balcony scene. But I gave it my best shot. I’ve also written one or two to Cookie…luckily those all had happy endings.
7. Do you believe in ghosts?
I could give you standard Wizard of Oz response “I do believe in spooks. I do. I do.” But I’ll just say yes. I believe that there IS something in the corner of your eye, there are probably fairies AND aliens, that ‘there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy,’ that we know only a fraction of what is possible to be known about what goes on outside of our tiny little life bubbles. And I believe in magic. How could I not? If we don’t leave a little room for the impossible in our lives…well, what would be the point?
8. This question is invisible. Here is my invisible answer…
9. What’s your favorite type of foreign food?
Indian. I love the spice 🙂
10: Can you play poker?
Technically yes, but I am REALLY REALLY bad at it. A train wreck, apparently I am all tells and no technique. You should never let me play for money. Seriously. Promise me!
NOLA Strip poker time! *rubs hands together* 😉
11. What has been your worst haircut/style?
This is the last question? We’re going to end it with my short, cauliflower hair episode? Or that time I tried to cut my own hair in the bathroom and it was always uneven so I ended up having a curly skullcap with one big poof bang in the front? You should never let me cut my hair short again. Seriously. Promise me!! (lol)
I promise! I will keep the short hair for me. You keep your beautiful long hair. ♥
Me:ROTFLOL LOVES this!
Thank you for playing with me. Now go write more Aziza and the Fireborne series pretty please with a cherry on top.
RG: Hugs back and thank you for having me on! *writing now*
Giveaway!! I will give away anything but my computer…reader’s choice of an ebook from my backlist or a $10 Amazon gift card
Me: *Kermit Flail* Oh! Oh! Thanks hon! rafflecopter at the bottom of the post. 😀
Release date: August 27th , 2013 |
Genre: Urban Fantasy
R.G. Alexander (Author)
Aziza Jane Stewart is living on borrowed time, and making a few mistakes in London seems like a good way to go out with a bang. But when two compelling strangers draw her into an ancient conflict, she realizes her curse isn’t about death at all…it’s about the power within her.
The sexy giant following her says he can smell trouble on her skin, the smokeless fire and magic of the demons he was born and bred to hunt. Brandon may be an enforcer, but his reaction to her is anything but adversarial. Ram, her new Jinn shadow, will do whatever it takes to come between them, and he’s just as hard for Aziza to resist.
When her dark family legacy burns to the surface, whom can Aziza trust? The alpha male who pushes all her hot buttons, the Jinn who seduces her in dreams, or the emerging Fireborne within? As danger circles closer, she must learn to embrace her newfound powers—and trust someone with her heart—before she becomes the final casualty.
Warning: Explicit content, magic, danger, voyeurism, chains, a secret ménage and carnal deeds of devilish debauchery at every other turn. Basically…fasten your seatbelts and get ready to burn.
