Blog Tour : A Night of Southern Comfort by Robin Covington (Interview + Giveaway).

A Night of Southern Comfort by Robin Covington.
Audience/Genre : Adult/Contemporary Romance.
Publication : June 15th 2012 by Entangled Publishing.
One night of passion...

Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He’s spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he'd buried years ago.

He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor's daughter...and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can't keep the same promise.

But when the stalker's attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela's life. And he’ll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.

Thanks to Entangled and Robin for letting me be a part of this blog tour! Check out my interview with Robin below and enter to win a copy of her new book!

It’s a pleasure having you here with us today Robin! Thanks for taking the time out to answer my questions ☺

I noticed that A Night of Southern Comfort is your first novel; can you tell us how the idea for it came about?

All of my books start with the first line. It pops in my head and I have to find out what follows, who said or thought it. In this instance, I saw this elegant woman sitting at bar looking at a stranger across the room and knowing that what she was thinking would get her kicked out of the Junior League. I just had to see if she went through with picking that man up . . .

If you had to describe Jackson and Michaela in one word each, what would they be?

Jackson: Haunted.
Michaela: Determined.

How did you decide on your character names and personality? Any particular influence?

Ahh . . . Jackson was easy. He’s southern and sexy and haven’t we all known a hot dude from the South named Jackson? I knew he was quiet, a loner and that he more comfortable pretending to be someone else on an undercover assignment than he was being himself.

Michaela was a bit harder. I wanted her to have an elegant name because she is very classy and comes from big time money. So I went to a baby name book and looked until I found one that screamed “Money”!

When did you decide that you wanted to write?

I’ve always scribbled down stories, scenes but never an entire book. When I turned forty I decided that “someday I’ll write a book” needed to be now because I’m not getting any younger. I think I also had the maturity and the skills to see it through. So, I wrote my first book in 6 months. It will NEVER see the light of day . . . it was my practice book. A Night of Southern Comfort is the second book I wrote.

Who’s your favorite romance author?

I love Harper Fox. She writes deeply emotional and sexy male/male romance. Her novel, “Life After Joe” is my favorite. I also love the humor of Jill Shalvis – just a wonderful writer and I was so excited to meet her last year. Total fangirl moment!

Favorite chick flick/romantic movie?
“Love and Other Drugs” with Jake Gyllenhall and Anne Hathaway. So sexy and Jake is amazingly funny . . . and sexy . . . and he’s naked for at least 40% of the movie. Whew! It is also a tearjerker and so romantic!

This is a question I need to ask all romance authors – Bad Boy or Prince Charming? What’s your pick?

Bad Boy. I like a man who has rough edges.

Any plans for your next book?
I just sold a Christmas novella to Entangled Publishing which will be out this holiday season. I have a paranormal and a super sexy category in the works and I’m writing the proposal for the three sequel books to ANoSC. I make sure that Jackson’s hot friends—Lucky, Teague, and Beck—all get their happy ending.

I'm so jealous Robin got to meet Jill Shalvis, I'm a fan too!

  1. I like Dimitri from Vampire Academy, because he is so hot and sexy:)

  2. I love Wraith from Larissa Ione's Demonica series. Such a hot, sexy bad boy :)

  3. Funny that mine is also Dimitri from Vampire Academy. I dunno why, he is everything wrapped up in one!

  4. Prince Kai, from Cinder. He's, well, very hot & all, but I loved his kindness & how strong he was with his father's death. Also, how he started "caring" for Cinder, so iff handed, but sweet.

  5. Aahhhh . . . I see you all like the bad boys. Jackson is a bad boy - he plays by his own rules.

    Thanks for having me Anjana!

  6. Current crush: Darkling from Shadow and Bone <3
    I probably shouldn't like him, those who've read S&B will know why but there's something that's compelling about him. :P

  7. Currently Bones from the Night Huntress series. He has a great sense of humor and is so protective.

  8. Gregory from Dark Magic by Christine Feehan. He is moody and scary...kids are told stories to keep them in line! he's like the boogie man of carparthians! But he is caring and once he finds his woman, he is sweet and protective.
