Author Guest Post & Giveaway: Robin Covington

Posted April 25, 2013 by Jen in Author Guest Post, Giveaway, Guest Post Tags: , , ,

Hello Readers! Today I bring you author Robin Covington. Robin, who NYT Best Selling authors, Robyn Carr and Carly Phillips, said was their new “auto-buy author”, writes sizzling hot contemporary and paranormal romances.
A Night of Southern Comfort, her best-selling debut novel earned 4.5 stars and was touted by RT Book Reviews as bringing a “fresh, modern feel to the genre while still sticking to the things that get our adrenaline pumping — sex and danger”. When she’s not exploring the theme of fooling around and falling in love, she’s collecting tasty man candy, indulging in a little comic book geek love, and stalking Joe Manganiello.
Robin is a member of the Romance Writers of America, the Washington Romance Writers, a faculty member at Romance University, a member of the Waterworld Mermaids, and a contributor to the Happy Ever After blog at USA Today. Robin lives in Maryland with her hilarious husband, brilliant children, and ginormous puppy.
Robin is here today to talk about her latest release, His Southern Temptation  and the Top 5 Signs that a friends-with-benefits is more than a hook-up. She’s also offering an ebook copy of her newest book. Please help me welcome Robin to That’s What I’m Talking About
The Top 5 Signs Your Friends With Benefits Hook-Up is More.
My latest release, His Southern Temptation, is about Lucky, a guy who has been hooking up with his best friend’s little sister off and on for years. Now, Lucky has decided that Taylor is the one for him but he’s got to convince her that he’s worth the risk.
Taylor is surprised when Lucky starts talking about a future but I think I could have told her what was happening . . . here’s my top 5 signs that your FWB hook-up is becoming something more . . . .
1) You don’t leave after the sex is done.  At first your feet would hit the floor before the orgasms were over but now you stay to cuddle, talk, or even have breakfast. *gasp*
2) You compare your “real” dates to the FWB.  Sometimes you even do this with your FWB partner. Imagine the hours of fun you can have making fun of the loser who took you to dinner . . . after the sex with your FWP . . . when you’re cuddling. HINT: This is cuddling with a side of bonding.
3) You don’t always have sex.  At first it was all about the sex but now you go over to their place and watch TV or just have dinner . . .  HINT: this is cuddling with your clothes on.
4) You text them with info other than hook-up details.  It used to be that your texts consisted of the when and where of the place to have sex. Now, you spend more time texting pics or cute info about your day.  HINT: This is cuddling via electronic device.
5) You get mad when you see them with someone else.  The little green monster rears its head even though you’ve established that you have an open relationship. When you fight about it the sex is amazing . . . and so is the cuddling. HINT: This is post-fight cuddling and will usually lead to sharing secrets.
So – do you have any signs to add to my list?
Robin, thank you so much for sharing your top five signs a FWB hook-up has become more. Here is more about Robin’s latest book, His Southern Temptation:
His Southern Temptation
The Boys are Back in Town Book 2
Entangled Publishing, April 2013
Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both…
A former Black Ops assassin, “Lucky” Landon has had more near-misses than a man should ever have. Now he’s out of that business and settling into the simple life in his small hometown. So the last thing he ever expected was to end up at gunpoint. Or that the woman holding the gun would be his best friend’s little sister and Lucky’s on-again/off-again lover.
Taylor Elliott is Trouble, and she likes it that way. And seeing Lucky again? Well, he’s been her dirty little secret for the past few years and everyone knows that secrets in a small town are almost impossible to keep. But Taylor has bigger problems on her plate. Like the local mob boss who wants her dead.
And right now the only thing standing between Trouble and disaster is a hottie named Lucky…

  1. LOL… what a fun post! Ummm… when you start bringing them as a +1 to friends and family gatherings.


  2. When you fumble with an introduction. “He’s my friend, boyfriend, significant other.”

    When his jealousy kicks in at a weird moment, like at her work Christmas party.

  3. When you stop in the middle of doing normal everyday stuff because you are thinking about him and you wonder what he’s doing now.

  4. When he wants to spend more time with you doing things outside the bedroom and would rather spend time with you than his friends. bluepooh1 at hotmail dot com
