Tuesday Spotlight: Tory Richards

The Ultimate Hero

He survived a bullet. He survived a sinking ship. He survived a plane running out of gas. Sound like something we'd have one of our fantasy heroes experience to impress the ladies? Maybe add a little excitement and mystery to their characters? I don't know about your heroes but I like mine to be rugged and exciting. Have a few battle scars.

Believe it or not, my hubby survived all those things. Is he a hero? Of course! He's my hero. Looking at him now, the years have caught up to him and done its damage. Age has taken most of his blond hair, given him a few extra pounds, but it hasn't dimmed the life in his pretty green eyes. His smile still warms my heart.

Speaking of heroes, I thought it might be cool to introduce you to some of the hot, sexy alpha males you’ll read about in my books, ladies. As I said, I like them big and rugged, yet the kind of man who’ll do whatever it takes to protect his woman and win her over.

In Wicked Desire you’ll meet small town sheriff Mat Dillon. After losing his wife, he’s determined to protect his heart from that kind of emotional hurt again. But he soon finds out he can’t ignore the charms of one troublesome female out to prove to him that love deserves a second chance.

The hero in It's All in the Jeans survived a fire that killed his two best friends. To add insult to injury he’s dumped by the woman he loved and thought loved him. While recuperating he moves in with his grandfather, who lives in a retirement community. Who would have guessed that visiting his grandfather's neighbor was a red headed beauty that makes him forget everything but his hunger to possess her?

What reviewers are saying -

FIVE ANGELS FROM FALLEN ANGEL REVIEWS! Tory Richards can write a hot story!

Four Cherries from Whipped Cream...Logan is just my kind of hero. Strong, determined, built and sexy. Libby is a spunky, feisty heroine.

Romance at Heart Magazine - It's All In The Jeans is a funny, sexy, and fun read filled with excitement, love and even a bit of danger.

The Romance Studio says... It's All In The Jeans is a cute, sweet, erotic story with a host of wonderful and charming characters. Logan's scars from his injuries are not only skin deep, but the tantalizing Libby destroys his control. She's compassionate, sassy, and her caring of her grandmother is heartwarming. She's a woman that knows what she wants and isn't afraid to grab it. The passion between these two is volatile and explosive. This is a superb, truly romantic story.

Like mercenaries and sexy kidnappers? You’ll find them in my romances, too. Who doesn’t like a good story that includes handcuffs?

OK, Tory, I just "gotta" ask...

Who's the cover model of "It's All In The Jeans?" LOL ;-)

Also, how involved are you in chosing your book covers?

I have no idea who the cover model is for It's All in the Jeans, but I wish I did! LOL

The involvement you have with choosing your book covers depends on the publisher and the artist. You provide the detailed info and what you'd like to see on the cover and they will try to design one to suit your wishes.

I've had artists send me a variety of covers to pick from. I've worked with artists who design a cover and then are willing to make changes or add things to meet your specifications.

For example on The Cowboy Way, I made the suggestion of adding the background behind the characters. The artist thought it was a great idea and it added so much to the finished product.
