*Giveaway & Author Interview* Cristal Ryder gets Naughty w/The Smtty Hussy!

My dear followers...
I am very happy to say that I was able to
*tie up ~ evil grin*
Ms. Cristal Ryder
for a little while to have a chat with her!
She is such a delight to have at the Lair!!
Let's give Ms. Cristal Ryder
a warm Hussy Lair welcome!!!
Isn't she gorgeous!

Oh and please make sure you read between the lines of this interview because I think Cristal snuck in a giveaway..... ***happy dance***

Hey Cristal, I hope all has been well for you... Why don't you tell us what you’ve been up to since the last time you were here?

Lots of naughty things with a little bit of writing mixed in.

Humm, now that sounds interesting! I could start this off naughty if I wanted to!! Hahaha!... But for those that don't come to the Lair often, why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself?

We'll, I'm Canadian, have two boys, 21 & 23 and I write erotic romance for Ellora's Cave and Lyrical Press. I love the outdoors and will jet away at a moments notice if given the opportunity. As I get older, I'm getting softer and can cry at the most inappropriate moments.

Did you use the older word... Honey, from that picture up there... Older is not you! We are going to do a little different interview because I know you are a busy woman (and let's be honest, I want to read the next book, so I won't keep you from writing! Ha) we are going to ask some random questions to get to know you better.... What are 3 things you would never leave the house without?

1. Wallet/purse
2. Phone
3. Clothes

And in your current book, what 3 things would your main character never leave the house without ~ Besides me of course, because I know those men in your books *evil smirk*?

He doesn't leave the house!

***I know I try to keep him busy, hahahahaha***

No need to with what *she* brings in to the house. But if I had to pick something it would be...

1. Wallet
2. Keys
3. Cell phone

In Switch Me Up, who was your favorite character to write and why?

Steve. It was completely in his POV. I had to think like a dude when it came to sex. Not as easy as you might think. I liked putting him in situations he didn't expect.

What was your favorite scene to write and the toughest?

Well, if I told you the exact scene it would be a spoiler. It was difficult to write because I wanted to try and make him vulnerable, comfortable in an uncomfortable situation and be able to know how far to go. He had a lot to learn in it and he did!

I challenge those that read Switch Me Up to tell me the scene and leave a comment. I'll pick someone to receive a book from my back list.

Omg... Did you just offer up a copy of something from your back list if we tell you our favorite scene from Switch Me Up!! Okay... I will repeat this at the end!! Thank you so much! That is so generous of you!!! I will keep this up for the month of March!!

Do you have a favorite cover?

Yes, I love Being Ariana and Switch Me Up. I can't wait to see the next cover EC does for my next release Elemental Heat. There be a cowboy in that book!

I’m a cover hussy, do you think it’s the cover that sells the book?

I believe a good cover helps the book get noticed and not passed over. There are so many wonderful books out there with great covers and some not so great. Of course it is depended on the readers taste as well.

Can you tell us a little bit about your new book? Maybe a little snippet? How about an excerpt?

Seems she will do better than that.. She is going to give us an excerpt!!!

An Excerpt From: SWITCH ME UP

He left her in the living room. Upstairs he tossed some clothes laying around his bedroom into the hamper, smoothed the bed that didn’t need fixing and turned on the bedside lamp.
He was about to have sex with a complete stranger.
Something so totally out of character for him it made him nervous. He may be apprehensive but he sure wasn’t dead and he wasn’t about to let this opportunity pass by. His heart started to race and his cock hardened. Sex. Tonight he was going to bang a woman ten years his junior. What did that make him?
A lucky fucking dog, that’s what. He smiled at his wit.
Once he was satisfied with the room Steve went back downstairs.
He totally expected her to be sitting on the couch waiting for him with her drink in hand. He half hoped she’d be naked or something. Instead she sat in the shadows out of the glow of the fire. She had changed clothes. Steve adjusted his balls and stiffening dick in his jeans.
What the fuck did she have on?
She stood and stepped into the light cast by the fire and lamp in the far corner. He nearly swallowed his tongue. Now he knew one thing she had in the suitcase.
“Do you like?” Clare smoothed her palms over her breasts, along her sides and ended her caress by placing her hands on her hips, tipping her shoulder forward with her hip cocked. Her voice, low and sultry, wrapped around him like hot honey.
Steve nodded.
“Speak, tell me you like it.”
His eyebrows shot up and Clare reached out a hand sheathed in elbow-length leather opera gloves and touched his shoulder.
“I like it,” he replied quickly.
Clare’s husky laugh didn’t seem to fit her tiny form. She circled and paused behind him, running her finger across his back from shoulder to shoulder before settling both palms on his hips. He craned his head to look at her and was distracted when her black, stocking-clad leg hooked around his knee. Steve’s hand dropped to her thigh and held her leg in place.
“I’m glad you like it,” she whispered in his ear.
He kept his gaze glued on her leg, rubbing his palm up her thigh to the scarlet top on the stockings and back down to her knee. It was a spectacular sight. He groaned when she thrust her hips against his ass and tightened her grip.
“Are you hard for me?”
Is she fucking kidding? “Why don’t you check for yourself?”
“Oh, what a delicious invitation.”

Damn, what a passage to read!!! Thanks for sharing that!!!! Now... what if you found the genie in the magic lamp, what would your 3 wishes be?

Health, independence financially and mentally, & my own private beach

I do love that last one!!! Well, actually I like them all... But if you get that last one, I know you will bring your men with you and I want in on that deal!

Now what's the last line you wrote from your current WIP?

A tremor vibrated under his feet and he looked down, furrowing his brow. When he looked back up she was gone.

What are you working on now?

I'm finishing up the pre-edits for Elemental Heat, my next release with Ellora's Cave.

What’s coming up in the future?

A release sometime in May I'll be in an anthology Public Displays of Eroticisms, my story is called Taking it Outside. A Women's Fiction and my father's WWII story is top priority. But I will be doing a few short erotic romances as well, one about a sea witch.

What’s your motto?

Why wait until tomorroLinkw when you can do it today.

Favorite line you’ve ever written?

"What a goat fuck."
