Welcome to SSLY. Thanks so much for joining us today, Lacey.
Let’s take a look at Lacey’s book before we grill her!
Can a hot cowboy convince Lauren to stay in Texas and take another chance on love?
Tucker Carver likes to have fun and has no intention of settling down anytime soon. He handles the business side of Carver Ranch for his family, and on the day he’s scheduled to meet with their accountant, he instead meets a beautiful woman who changes everything.
Lauren Ford packed up and moved to Texas to start over after her fiancé had an affair with her best friend. Her father’s retiring and has offered to let her take over his accounting firm. When she meets Tucker she’s immediately taken with him, despite his reputation as a ladies’ man. Knowing she isn’t looking for love, or even if she wants to stay in Texas, she decides to have fun with Tucker and keep her feelings at bay.
After one taste of Lauren, Tucker has other plans. Lauren is the woman he wants, but for some reason she’s resisting. And it doesn’t help when her ex-fiancé shows up in town wanting her to go back to Georgia with him. Can Tucker convince her that his feelings are true, or will he lose her forever?

Lauren stared at the papers in front of her, but none of it registered. All she could focus on was the half naked man. The hot, sweaty, tanned man who was now naked in his shower only feet away from her.
She shook her head and rubbed her thighs. Enough. It wasn’t like Tucker was the first sexy man she’d seen. She wasn’t blind or innocent, but something about him got her panties moist quick. Hopefully, she could make it through this accounting meeting without ripping her own clothes off and offering herself up to him. She had no doubt he would be an awesome lover. The man worked with his hands all day; surely he knew a thing or two that could please her.
Lauren straightened her back and stared at the stack of papers he’d given her. There were receipts, printouts, and such. Tucker seemed to keep good records, so that would make things easier. She removed her computer from her bag and turned it on. After she pulled up the file for Carver Ranch, she studied it once more to familiarize herself with it.
This was a profitable ranch. Last year had been one of their roughest years, but so far, this year was already better. She was sure once she started to fill in the stuff he’d supplied her with, she’d see they’d come back strong from the previous year.
Lauren jumped in her seat.
“Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.”
Tucker, now dressed, came over and sat next to her. Whatever soap he’d used attacked her senses in a good way. How did someone get out of the shower, yet still smell like fresh cut pines?
She shouldn’t do it, but she did anyway. She let her gaze wander over his body. The black t-shirt he wore hugged his wide chest, letting her get the full view of his muscles.
Lauren looked away quickly. “Yeah, I think this is it.” She flipped through the stack. “You’re free to do whatever while I do this. I know you’ve got a lot to do.”
“Can I get you something to drink?” He stood, and her focus went straight to his crotch.
Oh God. She glanced up quick to see him smirking. The man knew he was sex on a stick with his sandy blond hair and blue eyes. “Do you have some tea?”
He winked. “I’ll be back.”
“Take your time.” The farther away he was, the more she could concentrate on her work. She wasn’t sure what had come over her, but the sooner she got done with this job, the better. Then she wouldn’t have to see him again until next quarter.
INTERVIEW WITH LACEY WOLFE
Tamara: What do you HAVE to have when you are writing?
A drink. Usually water because I have to stop and drink every few pages for some reason.
Beverly: When did you start to write and who influenced you?
I started to professionally write 3 ½ years ago. I can’t say one person influenced me. It was more I was ready to try with the changes in the publishing industry.
Tamara: What do you think are the qualities that make up a “hero”?
Strong, emotional—even if he hides it, not afraid to tell a woman how he feels.
Beverly: Can you describe your favorite character? And which of your books is he/she in?
I like strong heroines who aren’t afraid to tell a man how she feels. I’d like to think each of my books features a heroine readers can relate to. Whether they are quiet or simply don’t know when to bite their tongue.
Tamara: What are the hardest scenes for you to write? Suspense? Sex? Dialogue? And why?
The moment leading up to the black moment. I struggle those days only because I know what is coming and I hate to see my characters unhappy.
Beverly: What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done? Or would like to? What? We are all about the love! Fine! If you don’t like that question what was your worst date ever?
Sometimes I wish I could give up control in the sack. We’ve all read those Dom/sub books, but I just CAN’T do it. I think I’d laugh if my husband ever spoke to me the way those men do. But it doesn’t mean I don’t fantasize about it from time to time.
Tamara: What are your favorite types of heroines? Do you like the damsel in distress who needs saving or the kick-ass variety? Why?
Mine don’t usually need saving. A lot of times, it’s the heroine in my stories who walks away and has to figure out what they want. Whether the man did something wrong or them, I lean on the heroine to fix it more than the hero in my stories.
Beverly: How many books have you published? What genres? What drew you to that genre?
I’ve been published 3 years now and I believe between short stories, anthologies, novellas, and novels, I have 30 stories out there. I am all about romance. Whether it’s sweet, sensual, or erotic. I let the characters control the heat level.
Tamara: If you could spend the day with any person from history, real or fictional. Who would you choose and why?
Oh gosh, I’m not sure. Perhaps someone from the 1800 eras. I always enjoy stories from that era.
Beverly: What is your “guilty pleasure”?
Junk food. I am one of those who tries to eat clean. But I must tell you, I LOVE to just sit down with a plate of nachos and eat it all for myself.
Tamara: What dream or goal have you yet to realize?
Like many authors, my dream is to hit the USA or NYT list. Each year it’s in my 5 year goal…one of these years I’ll do it—I hope!
Beverly: What was your most embarrassing moment or the craziest thing you’ve done? C’mon dish!
It’s something NO ONE remembers but me. But one time when I was dating my husband, I was meeting his best friend. And at dinner, I knocked my tea over. This has stuck with me…and yet no one else at that dinner remembers me having a full class of tea go all over the table.
Tamara and Beverly: Okay. We are SSLY so I have to ask. Who loves you?
My family – I hope!
