It's #GiveawayTime at the PHS! This month we have two copies of Heidi Rice's Tempting the Deputy, the second book in the Men of Marietta series:
Tough, taciturn and wounded in ways no one else knows about, Marietta rancher and part-time Deputy Sheriff Logan Tate is a man in total control of his life. Until he catches British photographer Charlotte Foster hitch-hiking and ‘insists’ she gets a ride into town in his squad car.
After her run-in with Deputy Hard Ass, Charlie Foster is ready to ride her thumb right back out of Marietta the very next day. But that night, a trip to Grey’s Saloon fires up her imagination – and her wild side – when she overhears the town’s first responders panicking over how to come up with the money needed to repair Harry’s House in just 90 days.
Charlie has an ingenious solution to their problem, that might just require her to photograph twelve smokin’ hot guys naked. And, as luck would have it, also involves getting some much needed payback on Deputy Hard Ass–who isn’t too enthusiastic about participating in the calendar shoot.
But as he spends more time with Charlie, Logan can’t ignore the chemistry sizzling between them. Can a man who lives by the rules fall in love with a woman who breaks all of his?
Message from Heidi:
I’ve always been intrigued by Tule’s Marietta books, so when they asked me to get involved in a series set in their fictional Montana town I couldn’t resist.
The basic premise for Men of Marietta is 12 smokin’ hot First Responder dudes posing for a calendar shoot. I knew I wanted my heroine Charlie Foster to be a British bad girl turned top professional photographer touring the states for a book project. So it seemed natural that she would be the one to suggest the calendar to the guys. My hero needed to be a guy who did not want to bare all. At all! And Logan Tate, part-time rancher, part-time Deputy Sheriff, full time Extremely Hot Dude quickly became the perfect fit with his tortured, tragic past, his taciturn personality and his ability to piss Charlie off with his I’m the boss of you attitude. Once I had those two nailed down - and a great meet cute, when Logan cuffs Charlie and forces her to accept a ride into Marietta ‘for her own good’ - it was just a case of sit back and let the fireworks begin!!
Loved writing this book and loved being part of this series - particularly working with Kate Hardy, whose second book, Flirting with Fire is the story of Logan’s cocky brother Lyle and Charlie’s good girl twin Emily. I hope readers love it too!
