Getting to Know the Clarks by Ruthie Knox + Giveaway

One of the biggest revelations of 2012 was discovering newcomer contemporary romance author Ruthie Knox, who blew me away with her debut novel Ride with Me, and whatever I have read from her since was wonderful, so I couldn't be happier that now she is releasing a new series about how the Clark siblings find love. So please give a warm welcome to Ruthie and read on, you could win the WHOLE Camelot series! :-)

Hi, Ex Libris Readers!

I’m happy to be here today to wish a happy third blogoversary to Stella and celebrate this awesome website – which was one of the very first to pitch some woo in the direction of my debut, Ride with Me, and thus will always have a special place in my heart.

Stella invited me to share a little bit about my Camelot series, since Along Came Trouble, the second book in the series – and the first full-length novel – comes out today.

The Camelot series is about three siblings: Amber, Caleb, and Katie Clark. Here’s a handy Camelot series cheat sheet, for starters:

But let’s get to know these Clarks a little better!

Book # 1 in the Camelot series

What woman can resist a hot man in a hard hat? Beloved author Ruthie Knox kicks off her new Camelot series with this deliciously sexy original novella, in which a good girl learns how to misbehave . . . with all her heart.

As program director for the Camelot Community Center, Amber Clark knows how to keep her cool. That is, until a sudden tornado warning forces her to take shelter in a darkened basement with a hunk of man whose sex appeal green lights her every fantasy. With a voice that would melt chocolate, he asks her if she is okay. Now she’s hot all over and wondering: How does a girl make a move?

Building contractor Tony Mazzara was just looking to escape nature’s fury. Instead, he finds himself all tangled up with lovely Amber. Sweet and sexy, she’s ready to unleash her wild side. Their mutual desire reaches a fever pitch and creates a storm of its own—unexpected, powerful, and unforgettable. But is it bigger than Tony can handle? Can he let go of painful memories and let the force of this remarkable woman show him a future he never dreamed existed?

How To Misbehave

Tony runs a construction company, keeps his nose clean, and steers clear of good girls who might want more from him than he can handle. He has a dazzling smile, like a toothpaste commercial dipped in a porn movie. Tony can handle anything—except the dark. Which is why it’s bad news when a tornado siren lands him in a basement with Amber Clark...

Amber has lost her virginity but somehow accidentally retained her air of dewy inexperience. It’s her giant brown eyes and big, round cheeks, she figures—men always want her to be exactly as innocent as she appears. She doesn’t. Particularly around Tony.

Along Came Trouble by Ruthie Knox

Book # 2 in the Camelot series

Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series continues in this sizzling eBook original novel, featuring two headstrong souls who bump heads—and bodies—as temptation and lust bring nothing but delicious trouble.

An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.
Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand?

Along Came Trouble

Ellen is a single mother who knows what she wants. She doesn’t have room in her life for a man. She doesn’t even have room in her life for a life! But then a shoehorn arrives in the form of Caleb Clark. Why does trouble always come in such attractive packages?

Caleb is a veteran of the Military Police, recently turned security expert, and the kind of guy who just never gives up. He works too hard, takes on too much responsibility, and sets his sights on Ellen about twelve seconds after they meet. Lucky Ellen.

Flirting with Disaster by Ruthie Knox

Book #3 in the Camelot series

In the latest eBook original novel in Ruthie Knox’s scorching-hot Camelot series, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.

Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help ... or her company.

Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.

Pre-order on Amazon

Flirting with Disaster

Sean is a hot mess. And when I say “hot,” I mean HOT. But when I say “mess,” I mean “He has his dead mother’s ashes in an urn on the kitchen counter, and he’s basically squatting in her house, neglecting all his responsibilities.” Also, he used to stutter, but he doesn’t anymore. Except around Katie Clark. He can’t talk to Katie at all.

Katie has never been more fit, more confident, or more ready for action in her life. She’s all set to impress her brother on her first field assignment and seduce singer-songwriter Judah Pratt on the side. She’ll be just like a Bond Girl! Except not. In any way.

About Ruthie

Ruthie Knox graduated from Grinnell College as an English and history double major and went on to earn a Ph.D. in modern British history that she’s put to remarkably little use. She debuted as a romance novelist with Ride with Me—probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story yet to be penned—and followed it up with About Last Night, which features a sizzling British banker hero with the unlikely name of Neville. Other publications include Room at the Inn (a Christmas novella) and How To Misbehave, book 1 in the Camelot series. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia.
