Today I welcome my fellow Total-E-Bound author, Jorja Lovett to my blog. I really enjoyed reading the first of Jorja’s Wild Irish Wolves Series, made even more special by my recent trip to Ireland. As we drove around the west coast and took in the scenery, more than once I imagined seeing Caleb and Mia racing across the hills. Having Jorja come to visit has given me an excuse to post some of my holiday snaps 🙂
I’m looking forward to reading the next in this wonderful new series – What a beautiful cover!
Jorja Lovett is a British author with both Irish and Scottish roots, which makes for a very dry sense of humour. Writing since she was old enough to wield a pen, it wasn’t until she joined her crit group, UCW, that she pursued her passion seriously.
Now, with Joe Manganiello as her permanent muse, if she can leave the pause button on her Magic Mike dvd long enough, she hopes to spend the rest of her days writing steamy romances.
The Wolf on the Run – Jorja Lovett
As a police officer and Alpha of the Olcan Hills’ pack, being a protector is in Rory Blake’s DNA.
When Naomi Duffy turned up heavily pregnant and alone, Rory’s natural instinct was to look after her. However, her fierce need for independence over the years has ensured they’ve never been anything more than friends.
Naomi has spent too long trying to keep her daughter safe to jeopardise everything for a fling. But, when her past threatens to catch up with her, Rory is the only person she trusts with her life.
Thrown together, the couple finally succumb to their passion and it’s all too easy to forget the danger lurking in the hills.
Do Rory and Naomi have a future together, or will secrets from the past tear them apart?
“I don’t know what they put in the drink around here, but I think I like it.” Rory positioned himself between her legs and bent down to kiss her.
With moves worthy of an American wrestler, she wrapped her legs around his waist and pulled him closer. Caught off balance, he fell forward and landed flat out on top of Naomi.
Her dress rode up her thighs to give him a peek of lacy black stocking tops. His cock responded appropriately. “Are you trying to seduce me, Ms Duffy?”
“Is it working?” She shoved her hands down the back of his trousers and grabbed his backside, making it crystal clear what she wanted.
At his hesitation, Naomi renewed the kiss, dipping her tongue into his mouth to create a spark that set him on a one way path. The base nature of his position, his hard-on pressed against the soft mound of her pussy, called directly to the wild side of him already on the prowl tonight.
“Are you sure?” He waited for the green light before he raced out of the trap.
“Have you got any protection?” The first flicker of doubt crossed Naomi’s face.
At times like this he was glad he’d been a boy scout. He took time out from their dry humping to pull a condom from his wallet. “With you, I’m always ready.”
Naomi snatched the foil packet from his grasp and ripped it open.
“Get ‘em off,” she ordered before popping the rubber in her ‘O’ shaped mouth. He couldn’t drop his trousers fast enough.
Naomi slipped off the car to crouch before him on the ground. In one slow, exquisite motion, she sheathed him with her mouth. His legs quivered at such an intimate, erotic interaction. When she stood up and assumed her horizontal position back on the boot, she winked.
That did it. He pulled her legs towards him until her arse was on the edge of the car and ripped her panties off. He took hold of his cock and plunged it into her pussy. The sudden coupling gave him instant satisfaction, but he wanted more. He wanted all of her. He hooked Naomi’s knee to lift her leg higher, plunge deeper.
The cold night became a distant memory as her tight heat wrapped around his dick. The raw pleasure of being inside her was only surpassed by pride at her moans of satisfaction. Driven by her escalating cries, Rory thrust into her with zeal. He clenched his buttocks and struck at her core. Who said lightning couldn’t hit the same place twice? According to Naomi’s cries he’d hit it with astounding accuracy time and time again.
Her obvious enjoyment brought out the savage beast in him and all he wanted to do was claim his mate completely. He buried himself deep inside her, knotting them together so tight he never wanted to let go. Only her wrapping reminded him they were still in their human form. The abrasion of her stockings against his skin as their bodies rubbed together, built up the static charge between them. Until he was at the point where one more brush of lace would send sparks flying.

Author Interview Questions.
What was the first book you had published?
My first book was the erotic novella, Pyramid of Passion. I had so much fun researching Ancient Egypt for that one. I also had a chance to explore the ultimate fantasy by transporting my heroine into the bedroom of Edifu, one of the Pharaoh’s soldiers.
What was your initial reaction when offered that first contract?
Excited and afraid at the same time. I was so pleased that a publisher saw something in me after years of trying. But, still had that fear that no-one else would like the story. Even now I have the same reaction when I sign a contract.
Of the books you have written is there one that holds a special place in your heart and why?
The Wolf on the Hill was a turning point for me. It was the first time I’d attempted a series and the characters and the setting just seemed to flow. The Olcan Hills’ wolf shifter pack hold a very special place in my heart as it got me my break with Total-E-Bound. I finally started to think I was getting somewhere as a writer when I signed with TEB.
Are you a disciplined writer or do you have to wait for the muse to arrive? Do you have a ritual that gets you in the mood?
Up until recently I tended just to write when the mood took me. After deciding to write full time however, I’m trying to instil some sort of discipline. I set myself up with a cup of tea, some chocolate and my notebook and pen to get started.
What was the last book you read?
C.A Szarek’s Collision Force. It’s a sexy crime thriller and I can’t wait for the sequel to come out.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on book two for my new series, The Department Store. It’s a cougar romance so I’m having fun with that!
What genre would you like to try and write that is different from your own?
A real gritty thriller. Although at some point I’m sure I’d still have the h/h falling in love and into bed.
When you receive edits are you Teary and Disillusioned or Feisty and Focussed?
Neither. I’m a ‘close the attachment and pretend it’s not there’ kind of girl.
What is one thing in your books you’d like to try?
Er, the time travel back to Ancient Egypt sounds good. Then again there’s the vampire Dom in my free read, Under the Dom’s Thrall. I wouldn’t mind giving him a whirl!
Now for some hard hitters with an Aussie flavour! (but with pictures of Ireland!)
A sport /sportsperson that you watch? (C’mon there must be one) OR An embarrassing sporting memory.
I do enjoy watching ice hockey. We have our own team, the Belfast Giants and I go to games whenever I can. Totally nothing to do with the tall, hunky players… *D – We believe you 😉
Favourite Aussie Author/Actor /Musician?
There are so many good looking Aussie actors. Eric Bana is on my ‘inspirations’ page on Pinterest along with Ryan Kwanten who I’ve followed since his Home & Away days. But I guess in terms of his body (of work) and down to earth personality, I’ll go for Hugh Jackman. *D – Hugh nearly always gets a mention 🙂
Your view on Vegemite?
Barf! Sorry. I had an Australian pen pal who sent me a jar and it’s not for me. *D – Boo!
Formal dinner party or backyard barbeque?
I would definitely feel more comfortable at a backyard barbecue with a beer and a burger.
Adventure holiday or relaxing by the pool?
I’m definitely not an ‘active’ person but I also get bored sitting around after a while. My idea of heaven would probably be exploring local markets and shops.
Favourite Aussie holiday place or one you’ve always wanted to visit?
I grew up in the 80’s when everyone in the UK was obsessed with Australia, so I want to see all the touristy places. Including Ramsay Street and Summer Bay *ducks from Donna* *D – Oh dear!
