Studio Smexy Saturdays: Spotlight on Jackie Barbosa

Today’s Studio Smexy Saturday is going in a bit of a different direction. We won’t have any behind-the-scenes, cover reveals, author interviews or anything of that sort.

It has been said that the romance community is the most supportive and generous of all the genre communities. Whether it’s coming together to help hurricane victims, a yearly auction for diabetes research, or to help a well known author or blogger through a tough time. This community is definitely all sorts of amazing.

Last week one of our beloved authors, Jackie Barbosa, lost her seventeen-year-old son in a car accident. Although most of us will never be able to understand the depth of her and her family’s pain, Jackie’s loss is also our loss. We grieve for her and with her.

Today, in support of Jackie, the very talented author, we are featuring some of Jackie’s books. One of them is a free read called THE REIVER. This features a Studio Smexy image (since we’re still going with the Studio Smexy Saturday theme.)

Duncan Maxwell, laird of Lochmorton Castle, gets the shock of his life when he discovers the reiver captured in a raid on his lands is not a boy, but a young woman. Although she flatly refuses to tell him her name or how she came to be riding with a raiding party, Duncan cannot countenance imprisoning a woman in his dungeon but neither can he release her without compensation. Unable to ransom her back to her family, he treats her as an honored - though exceptionally well-supervised - guest. He takes to calling her Reva and determines to seduce the truth of her identity from her. There’s just one problem - the reiver may steal his heart before he can reveal her secrets.

This story was originally published in the Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance.

For a limited time, this book is priced at $2.99 for your e-reader.
