in Fun Author Tidbits

Welcome to the eighth installment of “You’ll Never Believe…” :D

For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.

And to celebrate THIS new release (Schooled: The Mastered Series) the author, Lorelei James is here with her own mini-scoop of fun (and twinkies!!)

You’ll Never Believe:

“Being a writer is the best job in the world. But like any job, there are those….moments when odd things happen. I haven’t had anyone follow me into the bathroom and demand I divulge secrets for upcoming books—thank goodness.

One autumn weekend I flew to Minneapolis to meet with a group of fans at the Mall of America. It was a great night, we had dinner and drinks in a western bar with a mechanical bull. They all brought print copies of my books for me to sign. And then one of my readers pulled out a bag of Twinkies for me to sign—that’ll make sense if you’ve read Chasin’ Eight!—and it’s still the funniest item I’ve signed so far.”

Ready for that excerpt?

Exclusive Excerpt:

Amery kicked off her heels and dropped the shopping bags by the door. She’d pick them up later. Right now she wanted a glass of sake. She checked her cell as she wandered into the living room, hoping for a message from Ronin.

“I hope the rattling of packages indicates you’ve bought something kinky and sexy?”

She gasped. Then her gaze moved over to the shadowed form in the corner. Her husband lounged with his jean-clad leg draped over the arm of the leather club chair. A lowball glass with half an inch of amber liquid was clasped in his right hand. His black shirt was untucked, his feet were bare. His hair was in delightful disarray and dark stubble lined his lean cheeks.

He was magnificent.

He was here.

When she saw that heated look in his brown eyes—the look that was for her alone—she launched herself at him.

He laughed between her avid kisses as she attempted to rip open his shirt. “Hold on there, tiger. Let me put my drink down first.”


“If I was wearing a tie you’d be yanking me up by it.”

“I can do that with your belt loops too—right before I yank your jeans down.”

Ronin pushed to his feet. Then he framed her face in his hands. “I missed you. Let me show you how much, baby.”

She closed her eyes when his lips met hers, letting herself sink into his kiss. Being away from him drove home the point of how essential he’d become to her life.

He picked her up and carried her into the bedroom. He undressed her slowly, kissing, nibbling, licking on her skin as he bared it. So by the time she was naked, she was also wet, and ready for his possession.

Ronin had swept the covers back on the bed before he’d laid her on it. He kept his gaze on her as he removed his clothing. “That’s a sight I thought I’d never see.”


“A wife—my wife—in this bed.”

About Lorelei James

Lorelei James

Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
