Sweet Southern Betrayal by Robin Covington: Guest Post, Review and Giveaway

January 14, 2014 Reviews 1

Release Week Event!

It’s release week for Robin Covington’s latest Boys are Back in Town romance, Sweet Southern Betrayal. Yay! Can’t tell you how exciting that is for me. Robin Covington writes such fantastic, sexy characters and boy, are the men in these books card-carrying Captain Sexypant wearers!

First, we met Jackson, then Lucky, now it’s Teague’s turn:

Sweet Southern BetrayalPrivileged and ambitious attorney Teague Elliott is on the fast-track to getting everything he wants. All he has to do is stay on the straight and narrow and a high-profile political career is his for the taking. Until he wakes up naked with a Vegas showgirl…

Risa Clay has worked hard to put her showgirl past behind her and start fresh. But she owes ten grand to the wrong people, and to pay off her debt, she agrees to betray a stranger. . .but she ends up with a husband and guilty conscience.

Savvy and determined, she double-crosses the mob, goes on the run, and turns up on Teague’s doorstep armed with a dangerous secret, a marriage license, and the power to ruin his well-planed future. She thought using Teague again would be easy, but the passion that exploded between them in Vegas didn’t stay in Sin City and betrayal is the last thing on her mind.

Now Teague has to choose between the future he’s planned for all his life, or the one with Risa that he can’t turn away from.

Over to you, Robin!

I love Vegas.  I love Elvis.  I love romance novels.

In my latest release, SWEET SOUTHERN BETRAYAL, I got to indulge in a little bit of fun on the strip. Glitz, glamour, Elvis, and a little bitty wedding chapel.

In this book, Teague Elliott is a man with a plan. A hotshot lawyer with the White House in his future, the last thing he needs is a most unsuitable wife who tangles up his mind and burns up his sheets.

Risa Clay is a Vegas showgirl who runs an online sex toy business on the side.  She’s put her rocky past behind her but when she owes the mob money, she has no choice but to betray a sexy stranger and ends up with an irresistible lover.

I loved writing this book and bringing these two unlikely people together.

But the best part?  Putting poor Teague through the wringer and turning his life upside down until he had no choice but to lay it all on the line and put all his chips on one number.

Winner takes all.

And Teague is not a man who likes losing.

To celebrate the release, I’m giving away the following awesome prizes:

  1. An iPad mini (16gb, WiFi) to one lucky player
  2. $25 Amazon or B&N gift cards to  four lucky players
  3. 10 Robin Covington SWAG packs (tote bags, koozies, notebooks, t-shirts) and/or “what-the-hell-just-happened-last-night” packs full of awesome! The prize pack includes:  A copy of the movie, THE HANGOVER and Vegas hangover kits (including Gatorade mix, Tylenol, travel toothbrush set, Shout wipe, make-up remover, sleep mask, band-aids and spare pair of undies – all in a gorgeous little travel case).

I will pick the winners on Friday, January 17, 2014 at midnight EST.

Sizzling Romance. Burning Up the Sheets . . . one page at a time.

Here’s what I thought about it:

Robin’s signature line says it all about this book. Burning up the sheets, one page at a time. The sexytimes are hot, and the chemistry between Teague and Risa is electric.

The characters in this series are amazing. They’re smart, funny, flawed, imperfect….and my god, the men are sexy!

Risa is awesome. I love that despite her less than stellar childhood and life in and out of foster care, Risa was not ashamed of herself. It may not have been perfect, but she has never let it control her or make her bitter.

Big cheers to you, Robin, for not making Teague Mr. Perfect-Who-Has-It-All-and-Is-Wound-Tighter-Than-A-Guitar-String. He’s wealthy, ambitious and single-minded, but in no way is this boy repressed. I loved that beneath the “it’s all about the career” facade, Teague still has a heart.

I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed Sweet Southern Betrayal, and I am not going to get all spoilerish on you all. But I will say this: I am absolutely champing at the bit to read Beck’s story. If I’m right, a little hint as to the sexy doctor’s past is let out for us to find, and I cannot wait to see what Robin has in store for him.

I give Sweet Southern Betrayal 5 out of 5.

Want a teaser? Here’s a little excerpt!
Warning, there is some serious HOT!

“What do you want, Teague?” Risa leaned in, brushing her lips against his with the weight of a whisper, and he knew that in spite of his grip on her, she was the one who was in control. “Throw out all your plans. Live in the moment, and tell me what you want. Not for your family or the firm, but you.”

Her tongue was wet and warm against his lips, pressing lightly until he allowed her to enter for a slow, sweet kiss that promised him all he desired if he would just say the word. “Tell me what you want.”

For one more night—fuck the plan.

Teague took her mouth wanting, needing, to make her stop talking. She opened to his tongue as he swept inside her, tasting and devouring her breath with every press of their lips. Her hair was like a silken cord wrapped tightly around his fingers and he couldn’t tell if he held her or if she’d captured him. Her moan, deep and low, tore him open like an explosive blast, unleashing everything he’d kept bottled up inside him.

“You make me so goddamn crazy.” He panted against her skin, tasting her sweet desire, soaking in her surrender. “You live so freely, but I know you’re holding things back, pushing me away.” He caught her lips in another kiss, swallowing her cry of passion. “But I can’t seem to shake you loose.”

“What do you want, Teague?” She wouldn’t let it go. Risa tracked her hands down his chest, across his stomach, until her fingers curled around the waistband of his sweatpants. Her skin against his belly made him gasp with its heat and electricity. His body was on autopilot, his hips bucking forward until she responded to his silent request with the press of her palm against the hard, aching length of him. “I’ll leave soon and this will be over, but I’m here now. All you have to do is ask and you can have it. Anything you want.”

“I want—” He swallowed hard, the images of what was to come making it difficult to speak with his heart clamoring in his chest. “I want your mouth on me.”

Here’s a little bit about Robin!

Robin Covington loves to explore the theme of fooling around and falling in love in her bestselling books. When she’s not writing sexy, sizzling romance she’s collecting tasty man candy, indulging in a little comic book geek love, and stalking Joe Manganiello.
