Women's Fiction Contemporary
When Mae-June July Augustine hightailed it out of Sultry
Springs, Texas, with her heart in pieces, she swore she'd
never return. But nine years later, one thing stands between
June and her dream of opening an upscale martini bar: a
month of community service under the supervision of the
devilishly sexy Luke Gallagher, her first love and ex-best
friend. As lust turns to love, June must decide where she
belongs: in the glorious anonymity of Austin or back in
Sultry Springs with the man who intoxicates her like no other.

Re: Sultry With A Twist
bet it can get annoying, just say its a work of fiction but that they are free to try it with there partners and see what kind of reaction they get from their partner.

I'm sorry you have to deal with those awkward situations, but they make a great story and had me laughing the whole time I was reading it!!!
(Renee Pajda 6:45am October 19, 2012)
Some things are private! You have the right to that as do all of us. Good luck!
(Marjorie Carmony 7:20am October 19, 2012)
50 Shades of Grey has a lot to answer for!!! Hope those sorts of intrusive
questions don't come around too often for you. Keep up with the writing,
(Chris Coulson 7:35am October 19, 2012)
WHAT, those hot love scenes could just be a figment of your imagination?? WOW! Keep up the good work. Love it!!
(Beth Charette 7:50am October 19, 2012)
I can't believe anyone would think those sorts of questions are right in any situation. It is similar for us readers of romance too, people think its all sex, sex, sex with no story - how wrong are they!
(Barbara Hanson 8:22am October 19, 2012)
Loved the interview. I have these Sultry books on my wish list. Bday coming up end of this month.
It is something I think, me included, wonder if the author has experienced these hot scenes or where they come up with them. LOL. But I would never ask an author that question.
Good luck with the book.
(Pat Lieberman 8:47am October 19, 2012)
I'm so glad you guys are backing me up on this. Lori Foster
told me the same thing happens to her all the time, so I guess
I have many years of awkward questions ahead of me. :)
(Macy Beckett 9:21am October 19, 2012)
It is unbelievable what strangers feel they can say to someone newly met. Actually, it's amazing what totally intrusive questions people can ask of anyone!!! Best of luck with your books - and your encounters with nosy folks. You'll have to come up with some great answer.
(Nancy Reynolds 9:52am October 19, 2012)
This sounds like a wonderful book thank you for being here. I'm looking forward to reading this!
(Penney Wilfort 10:12am October 19, 2012)
LOL! I can only imagine the awkwardness! People can be sooo
rude! This book sounds fantastic! Thanks for the wonderful
post and giveaway :)
(Erin Fender 10:41am October 19, 2012)
Some people have no boundaries! I think what happens behind close doors stays behind those doors. I don't consider myself a prude, but the intimacy that is shared between two is not meant for discussion around the globe. Next time ask if when reading books they incorporate the scenes - I think they will stop asking then.
(Carla Carlson 11:06am October 19, 2012)
Great post, the books sounds wonderful.
(Wilma Frana 11:12am October 19, 2012)
I am constantly amazed at people who think they have a "right"
to know everything about someone else. I think if the tables
were turned and you asked that question back, they would be
offended! Your book sounds like a good read.
(Marguerite Guinn 11:51am October 19, 2012)
Some people just don't think before they open their mouth!
Your book sounds great and I would love to read it!
(Edwina Cowgill 12:02pm October 19, 2012)
Wow. Just wow. I guess some people get the feeling that they "know" you
when they actually don't by reading your books and interviews. Some things
are just way too personal to ask about though! I don't think I'd even ask a
close friend about some of that stuff!
I've met a few rock stars that have laughed about stuff like that too. They get
that a LOT, because when people identify with their music, and see their
interviews and concerts, they begin to feel like they "know" them. It can
certainly make for some very awkward moments!
That said, I think your new book series looks really good, Macy! Good luck
with your writing, and always know where the door is in case you have to
make a run for it! :) (Tee-hee!) Best wishes.
(Debbie Burdeen 12:28pm October 19, 2012)
I is really funny that some people think that they can ask any personal question and you have to answer them. I know a lady that does this all the time an I just don't understand her. I decided to turn the tables on her and asked her about her long time boyfriend . I was surprised when she left in a huff. At least she stopped asking me questions that day.
(Kathleen Yohanna 1:05pm October 19, 2012)
Would they walk up to any other stranger and start asking about their sex life? Would they like it if you returned the questions? What makes them think it's ANY of their business?! Good grief! :)
(Kelli Jo Calvert 1:10pm October 19, 2012)
Thanks, guys! I need a really witty comeback, don't I?
(Macy Beckett 1:46pm October 19, 2012)
I think fiction is fiction and your real life is private.
(Sue Farrell 1:53pm October 19, 2012)
You know, I love reading the story behind the story and had to
chuckle at the question you mentioned. Can't thing of a witty
(G. Bisbjerg 2:27pm October 19, 2012)
Hey I love reading the spicy bits in books, but I do not want to know specifics from the author... why would someone even ask something so personal...
(Colleen Conklin 2:40pm October 19, 2012)
It's called the "Open mouth, insert feet (yes, FEET. As in PLURAL), chew vigorously to knees. Continue to hips if needed for extraordinarily stupid and/or intrusive questions."
I've seen it in action many, many times. Always interesting to witness!
(Lynn Rettig 3:03pm October 19, 2012)
Having twins after one Lamaze class made the others in the class think I was an expert. Yet having twins does make you better at being efficient because there's no way you can divide yourself in half and give complete attention to each. I figured out how to do everything for one and then turn to the other instead of hopping back and forth. It's amazing all the sex questions I got, too and if they were "planned." I like reading romance for all the scenes, romantic and otherwise. Your book looks like it has plenty to hold the reader's interest.
(Alyson Widen 3:25pm October 19, 2012)
Oh, my goodness! Do people actually ask questions of that type? I can't imagine anyone being so brazen. I'll bet it's hard to keep a smile on your face when that happens.
(Anna Speed 3:42pm October 19, 2012)
"Open mouth, insert feet (yes, FEET. As in PLURAL), chew
vigorously to knees. Continue to hips if needed for
extraordinarily stupid and/or intrusive questions."
Hahahaha! I love that visual! You guys are killin' me!
(Macy Beckett 4:15pm October 19, 2012)
This sounds like a wonderful book--thanks for a chance to win it.
(Kathy Fowler 5:52pm October 19, 2012)
I read a lot of mysteries and off set them with a nice cozy romance book. Yours sounds like what I like. Thank you Mary for the opportunity to win a book of yours.
(Rosemary Simm 6:40pm October 19, 2012)
Would like to win your book. Thanks
(Linda Hall 6:44pm October 19, 2012)
LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND WOULD LOVE TO WIN.
(Shelly Caggiano 6:53pm October 19, 2012)
I think it's better to keep your readers guessing which parts of your book are fact, and which are fiction!! :-) If I were an Author, gutsy enough to write Romance, with sexy scenes thrown in, that's the way I would handle it. As they say - always keep 'em guessing!! The cover to your latest book is beautifully done, and I can't wait to read it!! Congratulations!!
(Peggy Roberson 7:14pm October 19, 2012)
It's amazing what some people will ask or say.
(Mary C 7:19pm October 19, 2012)
Wow, 33 comments? You guys are making me feel like a ROCK STAR
over here! ;)
(Macy Beckett 8:28pm October 19, 2012)
Everyone likes to know what everybody's private life. The fact of the matter is our private life is not much different from anyone.
(Kai Wong 8:57pm October 19, 2012)
You keep on rocking! Love to win. Thanks for the chance.
(Mary Hay 8:57pm October 19, 2012)
I can't believe anyone would ask that either :)
(Kaitlin Bledsoe 9:36pm October 19, 2012)
People really are incredibly - lets say naive.
(Mary Preston 7:36am October 20, 2012)
Oh, so all the secret agent/crime novelists go out and practise each scene before they write it? All the SF novelists actually visit Jupiter or the space station or whatever? And anyone trying to think theselves into the mind of a serial killer for their next novel has to....
Where do these people get their cheek asking you about your intimate life anyway?
(Clare O'Beara 8:55am October 20, 2012)
I hate that people do that! It's like when I was pregnant, strangers would come up and TOUCH me. It's gross.
BTW - my family doesn't talk about stuff like that either, ever. But I sure like to read about it.
Thanks for the giveaway.
(Karen Prentice 4:41pm October 20, 2012)
Sounds like a great book I cant wait to sit by the fire and read it :)
(Danielle McDonald 7:13pm October 20, 2012)
I love hearing about the writing process but yeah so not interested in if the sex in the book is what the author does in real life.
(Larena Hubble 8:10pm October 20, 2012)
I keep seeing this book everything. Congratulations!
(MaryAnne Banks 8:44pm October 20, 2012)
I know what you mean - I love steamy and spicy stories, the hotter the better! But I'd be embarrassed to share them with family members, even grown ones, because I don't want them to know how much I love kink. And I'm 53!
(Dana Wong 5:54am October 21, 2012)
Your post made me laugh. It reminds me of an article I read
by Laurell K. Hamilton. In her books the female lead has
several lovers. She gets asked about her love life all the
time. She says it would be exhausting to have that many men
in her real life but it still amazes her that folks feel
they have the right to ask. Keep writing and when folks ask
just smile and keep em guessing.
(Donna Antonio 7:33am October 21, 2012)
Wow... so funny. I guess there are lots of people out there who don't know where to stop or when they're crossing the line.
(Donna Holmberg 3:16pm October 21, 2012)
I don't blame you for not wanting to answer such questions, that would embarrass me to have people ask me those questions as well!
(Christine Mead 7:22pm October 22, 2012)
I'd love to win this book-never have read you before!I wouldn't ask you that kind of question for being a writer is your job and thats part of the job...thats none of my business what your sex life is like, even though glad you and your husband are happy together...I love to read and its away for me to escape from the real world,and finding a new author is a joy for me!Will definitely put you on my book list if I don't win...
(Carole Fiore 7:49pm October 22, 2012)
How about something like "I was taught not to kiss & tell so doesn't that
also mean kiss & write?" 😄
