Welcome to Badurday- the Riding Double Edition. Today’s guest is our own Sayde Grace. Her first short novel came out yesterday from the Wild Rose Press. This is the first of a three part series. How exciting for her to be able to tell three tales that will each be a stand alone romance but have some of the same characters. We’ll be able to revisit old friends as we meet new ones in her three stories. But lest we get ahead of ourselves, let’s talk about Riding Double.
SFCATTY: Tell us how the title of your story came about:
SAYDE GRACE: Well it wasn’t what I had in mind, that’s for sure. Yet it fits meeting all the things you need to know about the book. I had originally named this book Ride Em’ Cowgirl but there was already one Ride Em’ book published through the Wild Rose Press so my editor came up with Riding Double.
SFCATTY: I like both titles but the one that made it to the cover seems perfect for the story.
What’s your heroine’s name and occupation?
SAYDE GRACE: Willimina “Billie” Atwater is the heroine who owns a rodeo stock company. Billie opened Atwater Buck Out with her brother Jake and his best friend Bo Bennett.
SFCATTY: Your story has two men: Tell us a little about each of them:
SAYDE GRACE: The hero is bull rider and Billie’s ex-fiancé Bo Bennett. Bo has loved Billie his entire life but after he caused the accident which took her brother’s life, she can’t get past it but Bo can’t get over her. He’ll do anything to get her back even being in a ménage a trois.
Chet Haskins, bull rider and traveling partner of Bo, is the first man since leaving Bo that Billie feels anything for. He’s hot, funny, and interested, very interested. His appearance not only reminds her of Bo but his charm brings back feelings of love that she’d buried or thought she had. But Chet isn’t Bo, yet he’s too charming to turn down.
SFCATTY: Since my day here on the Sizzler Blog is all about bad boys, which of the men in your story is the most wicked and why?
SAYDE GRACE: Chet Haskins is the bad boy of this book. He’s a rich senator’s son who enjoys bull riding and spending money on women and beer. Chet knows Bo and Billie are in love yet can’t be together so he’s willing to take one for the team to bring them closer. He’s hot and knows he’s hot using everything in his arsenal to get what he wants. Chet’s story is told in the third book of the Cowgirl Tough series where he hires Billie’s best friend to be his “love slave”.
This is Chet:
SFCATTY: Wow – I think Chet fits into Badurday quite nicely. Thanks for the yummy picture!
