I'm so excited to feature Risky Behavior by LA Witt and Cari Z with you today!
It's day one of Darren Corliss's career as a detective, and not only has he been assigned a notoriously difficult partner, but the guy might also be a pill-popping dirty cop. Internal Affairs needs proof, and Darren gets to be their eyes and ears whether he wants to or not.
Detective Andreas Ruffner doesn't play by the rules, and he doesn't play well with others. With bodies piling up and a list of suspects who are way above his pay grade, the last thing he needs is a wet-behind-the-ears kid for a partner. Or babysitter. Not even if that partner is easy on the eyes.
As Darren gains Andreas's hard-won trust, they both realize there's more than just mutual suspicion simmering beneath the surface. But their investigation is heating up as quickly as their relationship, and Darren has no choice but to go along with Andreas's unorthodox--and borderline unethical--methods. As IA puts the squeeze on Darren to give up the man he's falling for, he has to wonder--is Andreas the only cop left in this town who isn't dirty?
Check out LA and Cari's answers to my standard 5 questions and learn more about them and Risky Behavior!
Tell us one interesting trait about your heroes.
LA -- Andreas is....grumpy. That's probably the best way to describe him. I mean, he's basically jaded and more than a little cynical, but it comes out as grumpy.
Cari -– Darren is trying desperately not to act as young as he looks. He looks a decade younger than he actually is, and he’s already young enough that people wonder if he’s up to his job.
Describe your book in 5 words or less.
LA -- Oil and really grumpy water.
Cari -–Bonding over drugs and murder.
Is this book part of a series, and when can we expect to see more?
LA -- It is indeed the first. Book 2, Suspicious Behavior, is due out in August. Book 3, Reckless Behavior, should be out in January. We're working on book 4 right now.
Cari -- This book demanded a sequel, and then another, and then another. Bossy sons of bitches.
What are you currently working on?
LA -- Aside from book 4 with Cari, I'm working on the 9th book in my Wilde's series, the third Skin Deep Inc book, and a new Navy series that I'll be self-publishing. I'm also wrapping up edits on what I've been calling my "kinky fencers" book, The Master Will Appear, which should be out....soooooon.
Cari -– I just sold a standalone werewolf novel, I’m working on an epic fantasy f/f romance, and I’m trying to figure out what to do with the novel I just got back from Samhain, called Tempest.
What is your all-time favorite m/m romance read?
LA -- Three-way tie between ALL of Jordan Castillo Price's PsyCop books, Alexis Hall's For Real, and Santino Hassell's First and First.
Cari -- Agh, put me on the spot! Um…I’m just going to throw this at Jordan Hawk’s Whyborne & Griffin series, I love it so much.
