Casting Call with Roni Loren + Giveaway

Where do we even begin with Roni Loren? She writes very sexy books (see Kati's review: Crash Into You), has a Boyfriend of the Week and her Tumblr is smokin' hot. Totally NSFW. She stopped by earlier in the year to share her debut release, Crash Into You, and we can't wait for the next book in her Loving on the Edge series, Melt Into You. And how appropriate is it that Roni's hanging out on a Monday with us? Bring on the man candy hotness Roni!


Meet Roni:
Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that's it. Her debut novel, CRASH INTO YOU, is now available from Berkley Heat.

I love looking at mancandy photos to get inspiration for my writing. Heck, I like it so much that I have a regular Boyfriend of the Week feature on my blog dedicated to aforementioned mancandy.

However, one of the hardest things I’ve found with my second book MELT INTO YOU is finding great blond hero inspiration pics. It seems we heavily lean toward the tall, dark, and handsome thing. I’ve joked with my agent that I need to stop writing blond heroes and heroines because it seems harder for the publisher to find great cover art with fair-haired people in them.

But I wasn’t going to change my hero, Jace. He’s blond and that is the only way I can picture him. Plus, Melt Into You has two heroes and the other one, Andre, is the tall, dark, and handsome one, so I needed a little variety.

I searched for the perfect celebrity inspiration, but then came across this pic on Tumblr and was like--yes, THIS is how Jace looks in my mind. I had to do some googling, but apparently this is model Andy Speer.

I mean, wow, right? Here are a few more:

And then, if that wasn’t enough, the other hero, Andre, looks like this (actor Eduardo Verastegui)

So, anyone want to switch places with my heroine for a little while? :)

Genre: Erotic Romance
Length: 368 pages
Publisher: Berkley (July 3,2012)

After running away from home and the boy who broke her heart, Evan Kennedy has kick-started the perfect new life with her celebrity fiancé. So what if said fiancé prefers guys? She knew the deal. And with her ticket to The Ranch, an exclusive resort where any fantasy can be satisfied, she knows she can find someone to fulfill her less-than-traditional desires on the side.

She just never expected that man to be Jace Austin, her old heart-breaker—all grown up, hard-bodied, and holding out a collar. She knows it’s probably a world-class bad idea—especially since Jace has brought along his buddy Andre, who’s every bit as irresistible. But if they can stick to the no-strings rules, so can she.

Too bad Jace has never been so good with rules. Evan is convinced “forever” is a word used only in greeting cards, but Jace and Andre have one last fantasy of hers left to fulfill. It’s time to go big or go home. And neither man has ever been a fan of going home.
