Guest Post + Giveaway with Julie Ann Walker

Welcome to the Virtual book tour stop of "Thrill Ride" by Julie Ann Walker brought to you by Sourcebooks.

Rock Babineaux…
He'll Steal Your Heart.  I Guarantee!

Hey, hey, hey!  Julie Ann Walker here, tickled to death to be back on Book Lovin' Mamas, talking about my newest release in the bestselling Black Knights Inc. series, THRILL RIDE, and why you will absolutely, positively fall in love with the hero.  Now I could wax poetic about Richard "Rock" Babineaux for hours upon hours - he's just so yummy.  But ain't nobody got time for that. <-(Internet meme in the house!  Get it?  *nudge, nudge* If not, I hope you're Googling as we speak.)  Anyway, enough monkeying around.  Let's get to the good stuff, shall we?  So, I give you…

The Top Ten Reasons Why You'll Fall In Love With Rock Babineaux.

10.)  He rides a tricked out motorcycle that comes complete with badass hydraulics, a wickedly patriotic paintjob, and a set of pipes that growl like a wheeled lion.  I mean, come on!  It's a hero on a bike!  That's not just hot; that's ssssmokin'!

9.)  He has tattoos.  And each one has a meaning.  Now, maybe this is just my personal taste, but nothing revs my engine more than a kickass tattoo inked atop a bulging, manly muscle.  MEOW!

8.)  He carries two handguns, Yosemite Sam-style, because he's ambidextrous.  And that means he's equally good with both hands.  Is it just me, or did the temperature in the room jump ten degrees?

7.)  He plays guitar.  Which means underneath that tough, covert operator exterior of his lies a heart filled with poetry.  *sigh*

6.)  He sings, too!  The man's been described as having the voice of an angel.  Now I don't know about you guys, but a guy who can play guitar and sing?  *fans self*

5.)  He's Cajun.  Which means he speaks with a lazy drawl, and throws out delicious little phrases like, "Well, if that don't put the pepper in the gumbo!"  Such a character!  And so much fun! 

4.)  He speaks French.  Which pretty much goes along with that whole Cajun thing he's got going.  But imagine yourself in bed, hearing a low, smooth baritone rumbling the following phrase in your ear.  "Je t'aime mon petit chou…"  I just got chills.  Did you just get chills?  
3.)  He has the most amazing hazel eyes surrounded by thick, dark lashes.  It's said the eyes are the windows to the soul.  And, I have to tell you, if that's the case, Rock's soul is gorgeous!

2.)  He's an ex-Navy Seal…  Enough said…

1.)   He's an expert interrogator, schooled in the fine art of reading people.  Which means he usually knows what a woman wants before she even asks for it.  *shiver*   

Now, if that doesn't make you want to rush out and snag a copy of THRILL RIDE so you can curl up with Rock, then I don't know what will.  LOL!
Thanks Book Lovin' Mamas for having me on today.  As always, it's been awesome-sauce!
Thrill Ride
(Black Knights Inc. #4)
by: Julie Ann Walker
Publishing Date: 4/2/13
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense

He’s Gone Rogue… 
Ex-navy SEAL Rock Babineaux is as Cajun as they come—spicy, sexy, and more than a bit wicked. But would he actually betray his country? Even his best friends on the special-ops Black Knights team aren't sure they can trust him. Now the target of a massive manhunt, Rock knows the only way to protect the team—especially his partner, Vanessa—is to run... 

She Won’t Back Down… 
Rock might think he can outmaneuver them all, but he hasn't counted on how stubborn Vanessa Cordero can be. And she refuses to cut him loose. Sure, her partner has his secrets, but there's no one in the world she'd rather have by her side in a tight spot. Which is good because she and Rock are about to get very tight...

Julie Ann Walker is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Black Knights Inc. romantic suspense series. She is prone to spouting movie quotes and song lyrics. She'll never say no to sharing a glass of wine or going for a long walk. She prefers impromptu travel over the scheduled kind, and she takes her coffee with milk. You can find her on her bicycle along the lake shore in Chicago or blasting away at her keyboard, trying to wrangle her capricious imagination into submission. Look for the first four books in her fast-paced series: Hell On Wheels (August 2012) In Rides Trouble (September 2012) Rev It Up (October 2012) and Thrill Ride (April 2013). For more information, please visit or follow her on Facebook and/or Twitter @JAWalkerAuthor.
