Book of the Day: Hell for Leather, Beth Williamson

******* THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED*******

hellforleather

Exile…or love. Life…or death. His demons will force him to choose.


Gunslinger Kincaid has traded his black clothes and pistols for a homespun shirt and trousers. Now he’s Cade Brody, a man with dark hair, dark eyes and an even darker past. The blood money he’s earned bought him a small piece of property in New Mexico territory, at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. But it can’t buy him peace.


Sabrina Edmonds, a tough, no-nonsense widow, runs the post office and store in the small town of Eustace. She’s made her way in life with an independent streak a mile wide. Sabrina doesn’t want to get involved with Cade, but she finds herself drawn to the dark stranger who hides in his mountain retreat.


Cade wants nothing more than to be left alone, but an elusive wild child who delights in tormenting him, and a town full of people determined to befriend him, conspire to intrude upon his self-imposed exile. Then there’s Sabrina, who should be afraid of him—but isn’t.
Not even when the deadly demons of his past catch up with him.

Author Bio:You can’t say cowboys without thinking of Beth Williamson. Her love for all things western shines through in her writing. A true Scorpio, she once described her “word” as passion. Read her work and discover for yourself how hot and enticing a cowboy can be.
Beth is the author many novels and novellas with Samhain Publishing, Loose Id, and Kensington Publishing, with many more in the works for the coming years.

Born and raised in New York, she holds a B.F.A. in writing from New York University. Currently, Beth lives just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and two sons. She welcomes readers to contact her on her website or by e-mail.

Interview Questions:

1.) How did you get started in writing and how long have you been doing it? I’ve always been a writer, since third grade I think. I finally got up the nerve when I was in my late thirties to actually submit a manuscript to a publisher and was fortunate enough to have my first book published in 2004.

2.) What genres/subgenres are your favorites to write within and do you have any aspirations to write outside your current genres/subgenres. Try something new? Oh, I am known for my sexy westersn—a bit obsessive about the cowboys. *blush* I also write some contemporary erotica, kind of my chocolate after the dinner. ;)

3.) What are you working on now and what releases do you have coming up? Releases coming up include Hell for Leather from Samhain in April, On His Knees (contemporary erotica from Samhain), and the Redemption of Micah from Kensington Brava in July. I am working on several things. The first is the fourth book in my Devils on Horseback series for Samhain – this is Lee’s story, my first one-armed hero. It’s challenging, exciting and wonderful. I’m also working on the second in the Private Lives contemporary erotica novellas – these are all about married/divorced/separated women and how they take charge of their sex lives and their men.

4.) Anything else you’d like to share? I love books. LMAO. Really though, I want to say thanks to all the readers who continue to take chances on us authors. I feel truly lucky to have all that I do and to be able to write what I love.

Readers, here is the contest part. Answer this question in the comments to be entered in a drawing for a copy of HELL FOR LEATHER. Check back to tomorrow for the announcement of the winner. The winner will have until May 5th (that’s the last day of the contest) to contact me in order to collect the prize. This contest IS open to non-US entrants.

Imagine you’re leaving Earth for a faraway place with very different food. What’s the meal you have on the eve of your departure, knowing you’ll never again be able to eat it?:

Beth says: Oh, that’d have to be macaroni and cheese. My favorite food!

Okay, blog readers, now you tell us what YOU would eat.

  1. I would have to have chicken carbonara. For dessert, I would like a custard pie.


  2. Spaghetti


  3. That’s a tough one! So much to choose from. Turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, cornbread, and for dessert, anything chocolate!


  4. BBQ baby back ribs, baked potato, coleslaw and tiramisu or a black forrest cake for dessert.


  5. Gram’s fried chicken. Hands down


  6. I would have to go with steak and lobster. Yum!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:


  7. Pizza or lasagna, both are my fave food!


  8. Tai – Drunken Noodles! :wink:


  9. I would go with hot buffalo wings with french fries. For dessert, I would have brownies with mint icecream on top with cramel syrup. Yum.


  10. Definitely lobster and crab – my 2 faves.


  11. Ice cream, need I say anymore?


  12. Oh I so love to be in for this one! I love Beth’s books! Yum cowboys!

    mmm, its gonna be bagels and cream cheese! Hot and buttery and cheesy and even a bit of sugar free jelly for me!


  13. Really really good sushi. And ice cream. And flan. :) (Not together, of course)


  14. I have to agree with Beth on this one. I would definitely have to have macaroni and cheese. It is one of my favorite foods and it’s what I turn to as comfort food. However, I would probably add in some ground beef as well as some extra colby cheese to make it extra cheesy and give it a little extra substance.


  15. Well, they don’t go together at all, but I’d have an appetizer of my husband’s delicious asparagus soup, an entree of Chicken Tikka Masala and for dessert, Creme Brulee.

    Beth is one of my favorites when I’m in the mood for a sexy Western. :)


  16. Spinach lasagna, a salad with a balsamic vinaigrette and tiramisu gelato for dessert – can’t leave Earth without having some icecream!
