Let it BURN

HSR-BURN-HTH-3-432x648

HEAT * SIZZLE * BURN

Years ago, while watching Sons of Anarchy, I asked myself why I enjoyed the show. Violence, horrible bad guys that you cheer for, crooked cops and on and on. SOA was like a bloody train wreck that I couldn’t look away from. My husband and I would discuss the ins and outs of the plot, the characters we loved and those we hated. Bottom line—Sons made us ponder.

The idea for HEAT was born around the time Sons of Anarchy went off the air. And, who better to write about bad guys you love and cops you hate than a retired police detective. The Hotter Than Hell series is not fan fiction. There are no correlations and the romance is the seed factor of all three books. They take place in the hot summer months in Arizona.

HEAT – You have Moon, the head of Arizona’s largest crime syndicate, then SIZZLE – Gomez, Moon’s enforcer and BURN – the newest bad guy, Dax, the president of a skinhead motorcycle gang who’s trying to turn things around.

I knew when writing these stories that not everyone would be able to accept bad men as the good guys. I want these books to make you ponder.

Here’s an awesome review on BURN that I nabbed from Amazon. This reader feels me and she has an amazing way with words.


“This was the first Holly Roberts Book I’ve read and I wasn’t sure what to expect. All I was told in advance was that it “sizzled” — appropos for a book called “Burn,” I guess. I was taken aback by the first chapter, which had a tragedy and a murder. NOT my usual romance book! But after taking a day to digest it, I read on. And read on. And read on. Finished the whole thing in about a day and a half, which surprised me.

Dax and Sofia are not your warm, cuddly, sympathetic characters. In his first chapter, Dax commits a murder. In her first chapter (the book is done via alternating voices), Sofia declares her intention to commit murder. Okay, then! So much for characters I can identify with. But as the story goes on, you understand just why these two hardened characters turned out the way they did, and the reader discovers, as they do, that there’s more to life than they have given it credit for.

It’s not a pretty book — the violence and the sex are graphic, and angels don’t sing and unicorns don’t appear when Dax and Sofia hook up. But my source was right. They DO sizzle.

This was good as as standalone book, even though it’s the third in the series. I liked it well enough and am intrigued enough by characters who played bit parts in this book to go back and buy the first two.” ~ T. Lorenz

 


If you think you can handle these very bad men, I think you’ll love this series!

Walking Naked in a Clothed World

As an author: Some days I feel naked.

writing nakedI think this is something most writers face. We pour our heart into a book and then throw our heart out among the masses. I always thought it would grow easier the more I wrote but I’ve found it actually gets harder.

The day of a new release is D-Day in my house. I can’t sit still, I eat too much chocolate, and I want to guzzle wine by the barrel. I’m not alone. Many authors react this way on release day. I know this because I asked a large group of successful writers. It amazed me that so many behaved as I do. A few were actually worse. Not one of them made me feel badly for having release day anxiety.

One author actually mentioned that she suffers from post-book-release-depression (PBRD). This was a new one for me but two-weeks after the release of HEAT, I feel it coming on. Did I mention that I’m also empathetic? Or you could insert the word “hypochondriac” if you’re bundled up in your warm clothes while I’m standing here naked. Just please don’t tell me you have a headache or a slow steady throb will descend.

While I’m pulling on a pair of socks, tell me what causes your heart to beat double time, your “I’ll kill if I don’t eat chocolate” to spike, or full out sweaty armpit panic. I shared my fear, so please share yours.

If you want me to put my clothes on before I head out to a crowded public location, please consider leaving a review for HEAT. Or just a star rating on Goodreads. Click here  for the Goodreads link. To put on clothes, I need some love (hmm, maybe I have that backwards).
