Two people from different worlds, and a woman on the run. Can love bridge the gap? On this installation of the Indie Author Feature with Coffee Time Romance and More, I’m pleased to welcome Tory Richards, author of Dangerous Surrender.

A Note from Tory

author1Hi there!

My name is Tory Richards and I’m a grandma who writes smut. I’m also a daughter, mother, aunt, sister, friend, and writer. It’s a good thing I retired from Disney a few years ago because being all of those things, and being good at them, is a full-time job. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since the age of ten, when I started penning short stories on notebook paper. At thirteen I graduated to a manual typewriter, then around seventeen an electric one. I plugged away for years on that one. Writing was a hobby for me, so it wasn’t until I received my first desk computer that I decided to get serious. My daughter and niece convinced me to submit to a publisher, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I wouldn’t change my life for anything right now. I have my own little corner of the world (a garage apartment in my daughter’s house) my cats, grandchildren, and I can write whenever I want to. It’s still a hobby for me. It’s my passion, and I write for me. Tell me to write, and I wouldn’t write another word.

I really enjoy hearing from readers. A lot of you respond to my monthly newsletters and I can’t thank you enough for your support and friendship over the years. I love sharing my stories with you. Some quick facts: I was on a plane on 9/11, I was a twin, my favorite movie is Last of the Mohicans, I’m a Syfy Junkie, my favorite foods are spaghetti, and any kind of sandwich, I love good coffee and sweet iced tea, I’m an animal lover and I enjoy good storms.

Would you give yourself to a stranger? Gwendolyn Myers never thought about it until she runs into a dangerously sexy Marcus ‘Bowie’ Ford at the Pink Pussy. A run-down hotel at the edge of a small town. She’s on the run, but one taste of the dirty-mouthed biker convinces Gwen that her running days might be over!

QUESTION: Who is your ultimate bad boy? Is he the biker outlaw like Marcus ‘Bowie’ Ford? The unapproachable, distant CEO? Leave a comment and tell us what you think!

      I’m with you, Michelle! Tory sure did hit the nail on the head with that one, didn’t she? Yummy 🙂


    2. Me, too, Michelle! I’m addicted to the outlaw biker right now, can’t get enough! Hey, thanks for leaving a comment.

    I like a good hockey enforcer myself!


    1. veronicabale says:

      I never even thought about that angle, that’s a great one!


    2. Haven’t read any sports heroes yet, will need to remedy that. Hockey, huh? That’s a rough sport. Must make for rough alpha heroes. Thanks for coming by!


  3. Absolutely, the hot biker outlaw! This tease for Tory’s book has really piqued my interest! #CTRIAF


    1. veronicabale says:

      Me too, Kathleen! I will have to see how this hot biker outlaw turns out! 🙂


    2. Thanks Kathleeen! Am I seeing that right, 3 e’s? I’m glad you liked the tease for Dangerous Surrender. You might like to check out the two full length erotic biker romances I have. Wild Marauders MC is already out and Dark Menace MC comes out next month. Thrilled that you made it by and thanks for leaving a comment.

    The geek guy who doesn’t know he’s hot but also has a dominant side in the bedroom.


    1. veronicabale says:

      Oh, yes! That’s a good one!


    2. I’ve often wondered about that kind of hero, mythic021. There is something appealing about the nerd with glasses and ripped muscles beneath his clothes. Glad you stopped in!


  5. Toni Whitmire says:

    I like them all


    1. veronicabale says:

      Lol, Toni Whitmire! Ne’er was a truer word spoke 🙂


    2. LOL, not going to box yourself in with one type, huh Toni? Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.
