Let It Snow Books: Interview with Katie Porter + Giveaway

Katie Porter, aka Carrie Lofty and Lorelie Brown, need no further introduction from me. If you're into the erotica genre then you're bound to have read one of their series at some point. After all they're wickedly hard to resist! Today, we're featuring Lead and Follow, the first book in the Club Devant series, one of the best erotica titles I have ever read. The incredibly sexy writing style and the memorable characters kind of made it hard for me not to love this story!

Hello Katie and welcome to Let It Snow Books!

Q: What makes you feel that Christmas time is finally here?

Katie: Putting up lights and the Christmas tree, absolutely. There was a time when it used to be seeing the Christmas displays in stores, but that’s crept to so early in the year, it’s crazy!

Q: Is there anything special you usually do for the holidays?

Katie: I always drive around with my children looking for the best Christmas displays. I’ve moved this year, and I’m told there’s a “Christmas Lane” nearby. I can’t wait to find it!

Q: You’re holiday shopping, name a few things you’ll buy this year.

Katie: As of the time I’m doing this interview (December 9th), I have bought my LAST Christmas present just this morning. It was a Kindle. I’ve also bought a Nook, a 3DS and a juijitsu sparring outfit.

Q: Do you have any favorite holiday themed stories (movies or books)?

Katie: I (Lorelie) watch Love, Actually at least once per holiday season. Plus I really love A Muppet Christmas Carol. Carrie watches a whole stack of holiday movies every Christmas: Scrooge, Scrooged, White Christmas, It’s A Wonderful Life and several others!

Q: What’s one of the best gifts you ever received for Christmas?

Katie: Well, I do really love my iPad… That feels kind of crass to say. Hmm. But it’s true, I love it.

Q: Let It Snow Books is all about the best books we read in 2013. Could you share with us some of your favorite titles this year?

Katie: Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh completely stands out. Sahara and Kaleb were two really right for each other characters. Sahara was the only one who could balance out Kaleb’s dark, and that much angst totally makes me swoon.

I also had a really great time with Victoria Dahl’s Too Hot To Handle. The heroine is adorable and geeky and absolutely sweet and completely relatable.

My favorite new book for my youngest son’s story time is Unicorn Thinks He’s Really Great by Bob Shea. It is SO cute.

Q: What would be your (bookish or not) New Year’s resolutions?

Katie: I don’t really do resolutions much. I just try to launch into the New Year with a fresh slate and good intentions. I want to work smarter this year, since harder isn’t really possible. I’ve been working on being more active for the past couple months, so I’m going to keep that up. But otherwise…I’ve had a lot of change in the past year. It’d be nice to have some solidity. Some calm.

Q: We all love Christmas holidays, but I was wondering if there’s anything about them that you find annoying?

Katie: Cleaning up the wrapping paper trash? And even that’s a seriously minor annoyance. Honestly, I’m one of those starry eyed people who think absolutely every bit of it is great.

Q: Let’s say you have the chance to spend the holidays with a fictional character, who would that be and what would you be doing?

Katie: I pick Rob from Cara Mckenna’s Unbound because he’s manly and handy and he’d shovel my driveway and very long sidewalk (don’t buy a house on a corner in a snowy place).

Q: What would you ask Santa to bring you this year?

Katie: I want an electric blanket!! A king size one. (Spoiler: I got it. *g*)

Thank you for being here with us today and Happy Holidays!

The best partners share everything...

Lizzie Maynes's torn ACL threatens more than her career as an international Latin ballroom champion. During her lengthy recovery, her longtime professional partner, Dima Turgenev, has been dancing at the Chelsea District's most notorious burlesque, Club Devant. More than just dancing, he’s been experimenting with shocking new moves that make her want to pull him off stage and get back on tour as soon as possible--the better to keep their successful friendship safe.

Dima knows all about safety, and the lack thereof, because he blames himself for Lizzie’s injury. Far from the pressures of competition, Club Devant is the perfect creative venue to rebuild his rattled confidence. He’d love for Lizzie to join him and revel in the club's intoxicating freedoms. By exploring the new sensual energy simmering between them, they could become more than friends.

Paul Reeves, a recently divorced Texan starting over in the Big Apple, is all for joining the dancers as they blaze through sexual boundaries. But he also knows their sizzling trio won’t last. Lizzie and Dima belong together. Before the last sparks fade, he plans to transform two stubborn friends into lasting lovers--one raunchy lesson at a time.

Warning: Burlesque meets ballroom in this f***ing sexy book when a smoldering Russian dance god and a blonde firecracker with hips possessed by the devil share a sunny, filthy-minded Texan--for just a dance or two.
