Tis the season for double seduction.

The only item on Jana Colton’s Christmas list this year is Kevin Mona­han. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she’s pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has always been Kevin’s personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn’t an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.

With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of tempta­tion shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he’s not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick’s convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.

Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love—in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there’s a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.

Product Warnings: This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman…or two.

Ladies and Gents of the Lair.... Please put together the warmest, hussiest, smuttiess welcome you can for an awesome author & our guest today...

Ms. Jodi Redford....

First off, a huge thanks to the Smutty Hussy for having me on her smuttilicious blog today to celebrate the release of my latest, Checking It Twice.

For those who are new to me, you might not know that Checking It Twice is the follow up to The Naughty List. You might also not know that it is my sixth ménage book. To the casual observer, it might appear as if I’m obsessed with ménages.

And you’d be right.

I’ll admit that there’s something about writing these unconventional love stories that really inspires and challenges me. Let’s face it, making love work between two is hard enough. Throw one more person into the equation and it can be downright chaotic. Possibly insane. But hey, I never said I like doing things the easy way. And in the case of Jana, Kevin and Nick, this trio faced a real uphill battle to find their happily ever after.

When I was first developing the character of Kevin and I realized he was a voyeur, it instantly made sense to me that this book would be a ménage. After all, if I had a voyeur on my hands he needed to have some visual temptation, right? Well, who better to provide that temptation than a pair of sinfully hot exhibitionists? Namely, Jana Colton—the woman Kevin has craved for the last five years but held at arm’s length. And Nick Pappas, Kevin’s estranged best friend who also has a raging case of lust for Jana. The three of them together generate seriously sizzling fireworks. Their love scenes are some of the hottest I’ve written. But for me, it’s never just about the sex. The most explicit, wicked love scene lacks depth if there’s no emotion to it. So for me, that’s the key to a really satisfying ménage romance. Mining those emotions. The only way I will ever make the readers care about the characters is if I care about them. And that, my friends, means getting inside their heads. Feeling the gods awful queasy giddiness of being head over ass in love with someone. Or someones, in Jana’s case. And worrying that the day will come when both Kevin and Nick will walk out of her life. 

I’m sure many of us are no stranger to desperately wanting something to work out. Maybe it wasn’t love related, but life has a way of throwing road blocks at us in a multitude of different forms. Jana has a deep well of perseverance and a never give up attitude that was never the less challenged continuously. It broke my heart to have to put her through those painful paces, but a love story never tastes sweeter than when it is hard fought.
And ultimately, I hope that’s exactly what I’ve created with Checking It Twice. A sweet, delicious, sexy love story with a heavy chaser of naughty.

  1. Thank you for hosting Jodi today, Cecile! :)

  2. Wonder if I can find candy-cane flavored body paint for my hubby's stocking?

  3. Good post - I agree that life seems to throw roadblocks in our way when we really want things - I guess the old saying if you really want something you're going to have to work for it is very for the giveaway!

  4. A huge smutty thanks to Cecile for hosting me today!

    Carol, do a Google search. Your husband will thank you. ;)

  5. Just got the ingredients to make my own peppermint flavored massage oil, candy cane flavored body paint sounds fun, might have to try it next time. michelle31071 at suddenlink dot net

  6. This was a super hot book. Loved Jana,Nick and Kevin's story :)

  7. I love Jodi's books and this one looks like another winner. Thanks for having Jodi on today.

  8. The rafflecopter isn't working. Every time I click on it, I get and error page that says "NOT FOUND". Just wanted to let you know. :)

  9. Can't wait to read this one! Sounds awesome!

  10. How the emotions are handled is a big part for me, too. Glad to read that you take great care to reach the reader by getting us to care about the characters and their conflicts and how they are handled. That added touch will keep me reading until I find out how everything is resolved.

  11. I can't wait to read this book. Is there any genre that you want to write in that you have not yet?

  12. This book sounds fantastic. Can't wait to read it to see more of Jana, Nick, and Kevin's story. Will there be any more books in this series?

  13. Can't wait to read - sounds like a very fun, Christmas read!

  14. June--One day I would love to try my hand at writing a horror novel. Nothing gory, just a little more on the scary side than my current paranormals. I've also dabbled a little with BDSM with some of my books and would love to write a few books that feature it more prominently. In fact, one of the future books in this series I'll be doing just that.

    Joanne--Yes, absolutely! I gave a little teaser in my previous comment. ;)I have at least 2 more books planned.

  15. Sounds like a good book.


  16. Never heard of candy cane flavored oil. Your book sounds great


I want to thank you for stopping by my place... I hope to see you again!!
I hope you enjoy my little bloggie home as much as I do!
With hugs, love and smiles... Cecile

My Fictional Smutty Boyfriend.... =)
