J.L. Sheppard has agreed to share somethings about herself in the following interview. Then read about Riding Hard and her backlist!

What is your greatest temptation:

            In men: Crewcuts.

            In food: Bread and PASTA!

            In clothes: Shoes.

What is your greatest weakness (example: buying shoes)? Giving into my four-year-old’s puppy dog eyes.

If you could have any kind of car, what would it be? Mustang Cobra.

Your dream home – mountains or ocean? Ocean.

What inspired you to become a writer? I’ve always had a love for reading. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to write.

Do you have a daily writing routine?  If so, please share. I do not. As a mom of two boys—one is four, the other is one—I squeeze it in whenever I get the chance.

What is your favorite book? The Will, Kristen Ashley. I swear I’ve read it twenty times.

What is your favorite movie? The Incredibles. (LOL. It’s true!)

Who is your favorite historical figure? Don’t have one.

In your books, who is your favorite hero and please introduce him? I love all my heroes, but I have to say my favorite is Thomas “Cuss” Layne from Running Hot, Hell Ryders MC #2, not only because he drives a bike and a Cobra but because he fell in love with a girl and never forgot her.

Who is your favorite heroine and please introduce her? In my books, Alyssa “Allie” Holden from Running Wild, Hell Ryders MC #1, is my favorite heroine. In the beginning of the book, she’s fragile because of what she’s been through, but she overcomes it and finds the love she knows she deserves.

What do you have out now?  Excerpt, blurb, book trailers

Riding Hard, Hell Ryders MC #4

Biker Dave “Dodge” Roth has never cared about his bad luck with women. He has other things to worry about—paying off debt his ex accumulated and most importantly, raising his three-year-old son, Cullen. When a new neighbor moves in, his boy makes it impossible to ignore her. Hard to miss, she’s beautiful, smart, sexy, perfect.

​After her last failed relationship, kindergarten teacher Alexa “Lex” Millen has decided to do without men. She’s bought her first home in a small town in California and remodeled it to her liking. Naturally, she’s managed to move across the street from the world’s biggest jerk. His son’s adorable, but he won’t mind his own business. If only her engines didn’t rev every time he came around.

Excerpt #1

“Fine. I’ll go with you.”

Going was her best option. When he took her home, she’d tell him why she’d avoided him and why the two of them getting together was a bad idea. Of course, that’d only work if he didn’t kiss her. So her plan—she had to keep him away.

He hesitated for a moment then released her.

“I have to say bye.”

She spun and made it half way around when his fingers gripped her wrist. He tugged, turning her to him again.

“You hear what I said before, Lex, or are you deaf?”

She clenched her jaw and fisted her free hand. Then the anger burning inside her spilled. “For an entire month, I sat in my beautiful house alone. That is, in between the times I got house visits from you being a jerk. I’m very angry with you for ruining the first fun night I’ve had since moving here.”

Her face flushed with each word. That heat crept down her neck and chest. “I’ve agreed to leave with you, but I’m not happy about it. I’m not anyone you can boss or control. I were you, I’d tread very carefully because quite frankly, I’ve had it with your insults, your cursing, your caveman tactics. Bottom line…”

She shoved a pointed finger in his face. “I’ve had it with you.”

A muscle in his jaw twitched. He grabbed her wrist, pulled her hand away from his face, and squeezed. “I could control you, babe, you’d be sitting on my face.”
