Guest Author & Giveaway: Jayne Rylon featuring King Cobra

Thursday, April 25

I'm not a car person.  I really don't care what I drive as long as it is reliable and gets me from point A to point B and doesn't break down and needs little to know maintenance...and gets great gas mileage.  I take that back, I have one car brand that I covet and would buy if I won the lottery (a Tesla in case your interested).  So why is it then that I find romances about motorcycle driving, car club themed books so attractive?  I can't really tell you why in definitive terms, except that I find the heroes incredibly sexy.  Maybe it's all those free oil changes, and flat tire fixes, LOL.  Seriously though, they're HOT!

Author Jayne Rylon is my guest today to share with us five sexy facts from her new book King Cobra, that are sure to peak your interest and get your motor running (sorry I just couldn't help myself, LOL)  I know it did mine!.  Enjoy!


Five Fun & Sexy Facts about King Cobra and the Hot Rods series:    
  1. The cover images for the Hot Rods series are by Sohpia Renee of Unique Portraiture.  I fell in love with them when I was planning the series and used them as my inspiration in the Hot Rods bible that I sent to my editor.  I never imagined I’d be lucky enough to have my publisher, Samhain, negotiate rights usage with Sophia.  I adore the covers and am so thrilled to have her artwork representing my characters.  In fact, King Cobra, is Sophia’s boyfriend.  How lucky is she?!
  2. In most of my books, I try to put Easter Eggs for readers familiar with my other books.  In Where There’s Smoke, the hero, Logan, gets drunk on King Cobra alcohol at the beginning of the story.  Most of my titles appear as references in other books somewhere.  Sometimes characters even jump from one series to another.  In Healing Touch, the Men in Blue make a cameo appearance when the doctors need to call the police for help.
  3. Super Nova’s car is based on a green Chevy Nova that my aunt and uncle owned.  It was in mint condition with all original parts when they gave it to my cousin, who was in college at the time.  He was driving home through the onion fields in our town one night and drove through a flooded area, the car was washed into a big irrigation ditch and drowned.  I imagine that Super Nova, Kaige, somehow rescued the car and restored it!
  4. Although I gave some clues about who fathered Joe and Morgan’s baby at the end of Powertools, I got enough email from fans to be more specific in King Cobra.  If you haven’t already guessed, you’ll know for sure after reading this book. The Crew is pretty heavily featured in this series as they give advice to their friends on how to make a polyamorous relationship successful.
  5. The car Eli is driving on the cover of King Cobra is actually a restored classic Beetle owned by the model and his girlfriend, Sophia Renee, who took the photograph.  It was lucky circumstance that the photo of Mustang Sally used in the garage composite on the bottom of all the Hot Rod covers shows her working on a Beetle.  Angela Waters, the cover artist for the series, is also a car enthusiast and spent a great deal of time making sure the lighting in the garage composite matched her experiences.  I love the way the collaboration allowed the covers to turn out!  Can’t wait for you all to see the remaining titles.

Nothing’s sexier than seven men with hot rods.

Hot Rods, Book 1

After Eli’s mother died, his father honored her life’s mission as a social worker by taking in several kids from the wrong side of the tracks. Not all of them stuck, but those who did became Eli’s quasi family.

Their bonds, forged in fires set by their personal demons, are unbreakable—or so Eli wants to believe. Especially since he and Alanso, his best friend and head mechanic, witnessed the overpowering allure of polyamory while visiting the Powertools crew.

Much as Eli would like to deepen the relationships among his foster brothers and sister in the Hot Rods Restoration Team, he’s hesitant to risk everything on a quick romp behind a stack of tires.

But when Eli catches Alanso exploring their mutual fantasy at a known hookup spot in a public park, all bets are off. And Eli must decide if it’s time to jump in full throttle—and trust his instincts to guide him through the night. If the pair can dodge the potholes in their own relationship, maybe they can race together toward the unconventional arrangement with Mustang Sally they both desire.

Warning: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a wild (and naughty) ride!

There's some similarity between this and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. They all have different backgrounds but came together to be a family.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Congrats on the release Jayne! I love that you were able to get the pictures that you used as inspiration for the stories to use for the covers, that is awesome! I wonder if the artist ever imagined anything like someone writing a book series from the inspiration of her photos. Looking forward to reading this book and the rest of the series :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
