My Chat with Em Petrova

Hello and welcome!

Today I have Em Petrova for a chat. She writes some thigh-clenching hot erotic romance.


I discovered her books last year and started with “Pushing Buttons”, book 1 in The Boot Knockers Ranch series which has 3 books so far and the 4th one is coming June 9, 2015. I haven’t had my fill yet reading thru the backlist, there are so many yummies: Country Fever series, The Dalton Boys series, Texas Threesome series, Club Ties series, The Quick and The Hot series, The Hollis Boys series, The French Kiss series, Pirate Lust series, Firehouse 5 series, Rough Boys and a few single titles. As you see, lots to choose from.

Check out My Chat with Hugh and Riggs, the two yummy cowboys from the book, I did last year.

Pushing Buttons-cover

This my review on Amazon for “Pushing Buttons”: “It made me read without stopping, I could not put it down. A ranch, horses and cowboys doing therapy! My kinda place, well… at least in a book. Loved adventurous Sybill and the two yummy cowboys who helped her get over her no-O problem and gaining their HEA. Lots of sex, MF, MM and MFM, so if you are not into that, this book is not for you. But if you enjoy this genre, I totally recommend it and make sure you have a fan and lots of ice within reach, it is HAWT. A great start to a series, I am looking forward to reading the next one.” 5 stars


Grab your coffee, tea or a glass of wine and read on 😉

Do you have a nickname?
This is it: Em! I’m also Hon, Mom, and I had a period when I was 4 years old where I wanted everyone to call me Fifi like a can-can dancer. My mother still calls me that.

What is one word that best describes you?

What makes you laugh out loud?
My kids when they get going on Yo Momma jokes.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Fresh-cut grass. Reminds me of home.

Favourite place to spend time in.
A special, cozy corner of the sofa. Either with a kid cuddled up to me watching a movie or with my laptop and my Breaking Bad habit.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I’m not a huge fan of mystery. But that doesn’t mean I avoid it.

Writing! What started it?
I became addicted in 7th grade when I wrote chapters of a Sweet Valley High spinoff series featuring 2 blond twin boys in my class (Jake and Charlie, if you’re out there, I still fantasize about you). My friends were gagging for the next instalments and I realized the power of the pen.
I, for one, am glad you did!

If you could choose another career what would it be?
Nothing. This is it. Oh, I guess professional buckle bunny, following rodeo stars around the circuit would be fun too.

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
I don’t have plans for it, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. And some of my publishers may turn that direction.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I want everyone to take emotion away from their experience with my books. I like readers to feel the character and live their experience.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
All readers who love a good, dirty read with some twists of humor. They should read for escape…and also pleasure. she waggles brows

What is next in your writing?
I’m a crazy busy writer! I have Dalton Boys finishing out the year with 3 more brothers. I hope to end 2015 with a Christmas novella featuring all the brothers.

You’ll see some brand new biker books. The first is a novella centered around the Hell’s Sons motorcycle club’s resident tattoo artist, Paxton. Mmm, yes, you’ll need to check him out—from head to toe.

I will, I will!

Of course there are more Boot Knockers on the way! Ty, Stowe, and Booker’s stories are hot, dirty and involve a lot of rope.

I also have some fun things up my sleeve. So keep checking in to stay updated.

Thank you for the opportunity to chat about my career and books!

Thank you for taking the time from your busy life and for the Chat!


And there you have it. I hope you will give Ms. Petrova’s books a try, they are sinfully delicious with a side of smexy mmmmm


And here is a chance to start on reading one. Ms Petrova is giving away 1 signed paperback copy of “Somethin’ Dirty” (for US entries only).

She’s headed for the big time…unless her heart gets stopped at the pass.

Country Fever, Book 4

Forty-two-year-old single father Griffin Turner couldn’t have made it through colic and calving season without his mother’s babysitting services. But just when he thinks he’s got the hardest part of the infant learning curve licked, he gets devastating news. Mom is sick. And Griffin is forced to hire a nanny.

With nothing but twenty dollars in her pocket and her voice, Nola Brady wants to leave small-town Wyoming to pursue her dreams in Nashville. She answers Griffin’s ad to keep body and soul together until her big chance arrives. Love isn’t even on her radar…until she unexpectedly falls for the rough-and-playful cowboy.

Between the sheets, they’re poetry. Outside the bedroom, he inspires her to be more woman than she ever dreamed possible, which scares her enough to put on the brakes…and hit the road.

But if she thought he’d just let her leave quietly, she was wrong. Because hell hath no fury like a cowboy in love…especially one with a baby on his hip. And a ring with her name on it.

Warning: This cowboy daddy is determined to make a May/September romance work—even if he has to lay down his palm or his mouth on a round ass cheek to do it.

Wait! Wait! I can hear the groans from international readers. I feel your pain, I do. But… if from outside US, the winner can choose one ebook from the backlist! YAY

My Chat with Hugh and Riggs! YUM

Hello and welcome!

Today I have two cowboys I met back in June and they are oh-so-yummy!

cowboy tushes

What is it about cowboys that makes our hearts go pitter-patter? Don’t know about you, but for me they embody everything that is earthy, loyal, passion, compassion… we can’t forget about the rugged, well muscled bodies either, especially jeans-covered tushies 😉 …. I could go on, but I know you are curious who these hunks are. So here I go…

What is your full name?
Hugh Donovan
Riggs Archer

Do you have a nickname?
Hugh the Huge. You’ll have to find out why. wink
Riggs: grins He calls me Archer, but only sometimes.

What is one word best describes you?
Hugh: Straightforward
Riggs: Passionate

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Hugh: A pair of Levis with a hole in the pocket where I got it caught on the fence, a black Boot Knockers logo T-shirt, my favorite cowboy boots and hat.
Riggs: Wranglers with a hole right here points to worn area by fly and a denim shirt. My trusty boots and black hat.
I know I am ogling, but can’t help myself. They look good enough to eat, holes-in-the-pants and all.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Hugh: Hell yeah. I wouldn’t let her get away with anything funny.
Riggs: Only thing that was off was my portrayal of my fights with Paul. I kicked his ass more than you see.
I think she did a great job.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Hugh: The antics of my guys. The other Boot Knockers are always playing practical jokes—gluing someone’s ass to a toilet seat, melting off Ty’s eyebrow with depilatory cream? Classic. That’s just a couple examples of their antics.
Riggs: When Sybill finds that special ticklish spot on Hugh’s side…

Oh I read about those, I laughed out loud when reading the batteries stealing scene, my favourite.

What is your favourite dessert?
Hugh: I’m fond of cream pies. clears throat and shifts around
Riggs: I love pie.

What is your favourite drink?
Hugh: A cowboy ain’t a cowboy unless he likes whiskey.
Riggs: Ditto.

What is your greatest fear?
Hugh: I was pretty nervous about losing Sybill, but in the end Riggs and I won her back. My greatest fear now? What do I have to be afraid of?
Riggs: Don’t let him fool you. He hates snakes.
Hugh: There’s one snake I don’t hate.
He is serious when he said it, but I see the laughter in his eyes.

What is your favourite colour?
Hugh: Hot pink because Sybill wears it on her toenails.
Riggs: Definitely hot pink.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Hugh: Do I look like a flannel jammies kinda guy? I sleep buck nekkid just like my lovers.
Riggs: winks

What is the perfect romantic date?
Hugh: With three of us, it’s hard to find romantic moments. But when we come together, there are wild, playful and sweet moments.
Riggs: We recently went to a big horse auction and had a great time in a local bar. Hugh’s got some dance moves.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Riggs: I think we covered this above.
Hugh: I’m not ticklish at all. looks to the side at Riggs I am not ticklish, Archer. You’d better keep that to yourself if you know what’s good for you.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Hugh: Leather and sweet woman.
Riggs: I get hard just thinking about those scents.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Hugh: Until Sybill, nothing really riveted me. When I asked her to turn around and saw her shapely calves? Whooeee!
Riggs: I have an ass fetish, and she has the perfect one.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Hugh: Riggs and Sybill are not going anywhere.
Riggs: Never.

What is one word best describes her?
Hugh: Addictive.
Riggs: Delicious.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Hugh: The Boot Knockers series is about a group of cowboys who specialize in helping women with sexual problems. You’re going to see a lot of these cowboys—Damian from Body Language, Jack and Paul from Reining Men and Ty from Ropin’ Hearts, coming in June 2015.

I sure did love Body Language and looking forward to more.
Thank you Hugh! Thank you Riggs! I really appreciate you taking the time to chat with me. Hugs to Sybill !

So what do you think? Makes me wish for my own cowboy.. or two 😀

I would like to thank Ms. Petrova for sending them over for a chat, I sure enjoyed myself immensely. THANK YOU EM!!!


They hail from PUSHIN’ BUTTONS book 1 of The Boot Knockers Ranch by the fabulous Em Petrova.

It’s all in her head. Until she falls into the hands—and hearts—of two cowboys.

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 1

Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sybill cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can’t get her off, nothing will.

Hugh had planned to sit out this week’s rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sybill, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn’t enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.

Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sybill, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy—a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man—and woman—he’d break every last rule to make his own.

Warning: This ain’t your daddy’s ranch. Contains cowboys administering sexual therapy to frustrated ladies—and each other. Fresh batteries recommended. You’re gonna need ’em!
