Tis the season indeed! Start the festivities with a super sexy holiday read from Jodi Redford that will definitely melt poor old Frosty. Today, Jodi is kicking off her CHECKING IT TWICE tour and giving away a Kindle. How's that for a very Merry Christmas?
WELCOME TO THE BLOG JODI!!!
At the ripe age of seven, Jodi Redford penned her first epic, complete with stick figure illustrations. Sadly, her drawing skills haven’t improved much, but her love of fantasy worlds never went away. These days she writes about fairies, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures, only with considerably more heat.
She has won numerous contests, including The Golden Pen and Launching a Star. When not writing or working the day job, she enjoys gardening and way too many reality television shows.
She loves to hear from readers. You can email her, visit her online and her blog. You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter.
Jamie and Kati: Who is Jodi Redford?
Jodi Redford: Author. Imaginary superhero. Lover of waffles and bacon. Not necessarily in that order. A few of my readers have officially nicknamed me the Mistress of Naughtiness. I like it because it makes me sound like a dominatrix. An imaginary superhero dominatrix. ;)
J&K: Share a little bit about CHECKING IT TWICE [no copying blurb :)]
JR: Checking It Twice is my super smexy follow up to The Naughty List. Just like its predecessor, Checking It Twice is a ménage set during the Christmas holiday. Jana Colton has been in love with Kevin Monahan, the head chef at her brother’s restaurant, for nearly five years. Despite every flirty, seductive ploy she’s thrown at him, Kevin has always resisted taking their friendship to the next level. There are demons from Kevin’s past that make it impossible for him to believe he can ever sustain a normal relationship. When he’s offered a new position at his father’s restaurant in Vegas, he sees it as a way to mend the strained relationship between him and his dad, and also give Jana the chance to move on and find a man who isn’t carrying so much emotional baggage. What Kevin isn’t prepared for is the unexpected arrival of his estranged best friend, Nick Pappas. You see, Nick and Kevin used to share women, and Nick knows full well how to lead Kevin into every sinful temptation known to mankind.
Nick has been supplying products for Jana’s lingerie and sex toy shop for the past year. The dance of flirtation has been steadily growing between them, so when the opportunity to hand deliver some product samples presents itself, Nick jumps at the chance. The last person he expects to see walking through Jana’s doorway is Kevin. It’s glaringly evident to Nick that his best friend is in love with Jana, but Kev is too haunted by his inner demons to give in to his love and desire for her. Nick makes it his mission to bring Jana and Kevin together, and he knows exactly the kind of bait that feeds Kevin’s voyeuristic tendencies. It doesn’t take Nick long though to realize his heart is tied up in Jana and the unconventional threesome they’ve developed. But with Kevin dead set on moving to Vegas, the possibility of a happy ending for any of them teeters on a shaky thread.
J&K: Which two authors would you write an anthology with and what would it be about?
JR: Ooh, tough question. There are so many authors I would love to write an anthology with. But if we’re talking ultimate fantasy, it’d have to be Lorelei James and Dean Koontz. LOLOL. I know, talk about the weirdest and most awesome antho in the annals of time! But I’m such a huge fangirl of them both. Honestly, I have no freakin’ clue what it would be about, except I’m pretty sure sexy cowboys and monsters would be involved. Someone, please make this happen!
J&K: Do you have any writing rituals? (blasting music, eating cookies, drinking wine...)
JR: My one standard writing ritual is soundtracking all of my books. Usually I do this before starting on the book because the songs help me flesh out my characters and some of the scenes, but occasionally some of the tunes come to me during the writing phase.
J&K: If your book had a theme song, what would it be?
JR: Actually it does have one. The Sweetest Taboo by Sade. It’s a very sexy song, and fits the theme of the book to a T.
J&K: What can readers expect from you next?
JR: Right now I’m working on a new contemporary erotic series. I’m hoping to have it contracted and out sometime next year. Additionally, next summer Samhain Publishing is releasing Lover Enraptured, the second book in my Thieves of Aurion series. So excited to have that book coming out!
J&K: Author’s choice: You get to ask the readers a question :)
JR: Ooh, I like getting to be on this side of the table. Okay, what I would love to ask all your lovely readers is this—what aspects of a ménage romance draws them in?

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.
