Laney Briggs is searching for a few not-so good men, including her Texas Ranger boyfriend.
Fans of Lorelei James’s Long Time Gone Cat Johnson’s Studs and Spurs series will love the sexy and suspenseful addition to the Deputy Laney Briggs series by Author Jodi Linton.
Laney Briggs was almost certain that her sexy-assed Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, was gonna pop the question. Instead, he went and pulled one helluva fast one—he arrested her best friend, Luke Wagner, and skipped out. Now Pistol Rock’s firecracker deputy is ready to go Wild West on Gunner…if she can just keep that raw, sexual chemistry under control.
Gunner was planning to propose, and it all went to hell. Now he’s boots-deep into an investigation with ties to the Dirty Southern Mafia and corrupt cops. Yep, Laney is definitely gonna have his hide. Especially when she finds out just how much he’s been keeping from her…
But Laney has a weakness for Gunner’s delectable cowboy hotness. And for him, she will break every rule in the book—including the ones she’s sworn to uphold.
See where the sparks began to fly with book 1 of the Deputy Laney Briggs series, Pretty Reckless.
Her gaze fell to my ass, then rose to my face. “I didn’t know a case of blue balls was on the dinner menu for the evening.”
Ouch. In response to her question, I tipped my hat and said, “Darling, I can’t help it if the good Lord made me healthily endowed.”
Her eyebrow arched. “Oh my god, you’re thinking about me naked.”
Naked. Up against the wall. Screaming my name. Hell, I’d take any one of them and not in a particular order.
“That could become a real big problem.”
“Tell me about it.”
Laney laughed, the girly sound of her voice making the strain beating down my fly even more painful. “Because I’m thinking about whether the townsfolk will disapprove of me sending another load of rock salt into your ass.”
She must’ve noticed the wince that slipped from my lips, because her upper lip twitched in an attempt to suppress that pretty plump smile of hers.
I shrugged a shoulder. “They would, I promise.”
“Really?” She stepped in closer and ran a hand down my chest, sending every single cell in my body humming let’s have sex. “I probably could convince them it was an accident,” she said, tossing me a cute wink.
There’d be no argument from me on that accurate assessment. Maybe if I played my cards right on the ride over to our house she’d hear me out. God, I was gonna have to master a skill and learn to swallow my pride this time around.
“If you give me a ride, I’ll confess to whatever questions asked.”
The car keys dangled in her petite hands—the same hands that held the power to drive me nuts by simply squeezing my ass. She looked around, almost nervous about what to say next, then fitted me with an icy stare capable of sawing me in two. “Well, cowboy, it looks like you’re in luck. I know just the place to drop ya off at.”
Pathetic, how much I enjoyed that nickname

Jodi agreed to answer some
nosy interesting questions on her writing process:
Do you outline your books or wing it? Describe your process.
Before I met my writer pal Veronica Forand I was a wing it gal. Then she showed me the light. Now, I outline, outline, outline, so much sometimes my fingers hurt. But it’s all worth it in the end. I use Scrivener to lay out my plot and chapters. Also, Veronica introduce me to Mr. Scrivener as well. He’s saved my writerly butt more than once, might I add.
How do you decide on setting?
Right now all my books are set in Texas. More than likely it’ll stay that way since that’s where I live. No. I’m not a hermit. I have travelled elsewhere, overseas included. Fist pump, right? Okay, maybe that small town girl still living inside me considers that plane trip a huge feat. But I know Texas. Its who I am, and I love bringing cowboys, bikers, sassy females, and Texas to life on the pages. Its in my blood, y’all. And I hope you enjoy it as much as I love writing it.
What genre(s) do you write in? Why?
I have a sexy, western, romantic suspense series, and a contemporary motorcycle romance series launching in the 2016. I like cowboys and bikers.
What is your favorite part of writing?
Seeing my characters jump off the pages as they come to life.
What is your least favorite part of writing?
Can I say edits? Some writers edit excessively as they write; others wait until a novel is finished to do the bulk of editing. How about you?
I’m a tweaker until the author bio goes live. 🙂
What’s the strangest thing you have ever done in the name of research?
Can I plead the fifth?
E-books, print, or both? Any preferences? Why?
Mostly E-books because I’m a one-clicker addict. But I enjoy hitting up the local book store for print copies.
Please tell us your experiences with social media. What are your favorite and least favorite parts of it?
I have an author Facebook page and a Twitter profile for the most part. Mainly, I use both social media platforms as a professional platform.
What do you read? Do you read different genres when you’re writing versus not writing?
I call myself a fictional buffett reader. Is that a term? Hand me a book and I’ll try it. Horror, thrillers, YA, NA, romance, or a chick lit about shoes and family drama…I’m your gal.
