Welcome Author Tory Richards

Alaska. What do you think of? The cold and snow? Long dark nights, or Northern Lights? The remote wilderness, and a little hot lovin in a rustic cabin somewhere? Just the name conjures up mystery, and all kinds of things. Alaska is wild, adventurous and inspiring. I went with my daughter and niece in 2004 and it was the best two-week vacation! Someday I plan to go back. There's something very romantic about that place and visiting there is what inspired me to write Someone to Love Me.

Someone to Love Me came out March 15 with Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. It's a full length erotic romance, about two strangers who find themselves stranded in a remote cabin in the mountains for the winter. Previously released with a different publisher, it's been given new life with added content, and hotter encounters between the hero and heroine. Someone to Love Me is probably the hardest story I've written, due to the fact that until the last two chapters, the only characters in the whole story are the hero and heroine.
Blurb -

When Charlie's plane goes down in the remote Alaskan wilderness she knows she's in big trouble. She didn't have time to radio in her position. So it looks like her decision to surprise her parents on their wedding anniversary wasn't such a good idea. Now lost and in freezing temperatures, her chances of survival look bleak.

As Charlie heads out on foot, she faces a new danger when a white wolf appears. And right behind him is her salvation. A quiet mountain man with secrets, who takes her to his one-room cabin, where she finds herself stranded for the winter. To make matters worse, there's an instant attraction between them they try but can't resist.
Excerpt-

He tossed the top onto the sofa without looking, wondering how she was going to react to what he had to say. Did she have a temper? No use beating around the bush.

"I have a truck but it’s not here."


His words halted the movement of her hands, thank God, which were at the waistband of her pants. Her eyes went round with mild surprise. "Not here? How do you get to town and back? How do you get around?"



She started to wiggle out of the extra pair of sweat bottoms with enough hip action to give a man heart failure. Sweet Jesus! Luke clenched his teeth and quickly turned away from her. His cock was swelling with rapid excitement. What the hell was the matter with him? All of a sudden he was hot, from the inside out.


"I don’t," he said tersely.

He wished he’d purchased the snowmobile Frank Howard had tried to talk him into buying for emergencies when he’d gone into town just before winter. He could have gotten her there on that.

"I don’t understand."

Not until he was safely on the other side of the room did Luke dare to face her again. She’d stepped out of the bottoms and tossed them onto the couch. The look in her eyes revealed her confusion as she gathered her hair into a makeshift bun at the back of her neck. She twisted it into a knot with her lips pressed together, exposing a frustration he could relate to.

His gaze moved over her quickly. A big mistake considering his state of arousal. He liked the fact she had a nice shape, full and softly rounded. Curves designed to fit perfectly in the hands of a man. Nevertheless, those thoughts would get him nowhere but into trouble. Luke had made up his mind a long time ago there’d be no one else for him after Susan. He’d closed the door on relationships and intimacy the day she died.

"I left my truck in town to be serviced. I won’t get it back until spring."

"Spring!" Charlie gasped with disbelief. "You mean we’re going to have to walk the thirty-one miles to town?"

Luke almost laughed at her naiveté. "Hardly, that would be suicide. There’s no way out of here until the snow melts." He could tell the moment the meaning behind his words sank in. She obviously didn’t like it any better than he did.


"But that’s…"  Charlie halted abruptly and Luke watched her mouth move as she mumbled beneath her breath, calculating quickly on her fingers.  "Two months away!" she shouted. "I can’t stay here for two months!"


Luke shrugged with indifference. "If you can figure a way down the mountain then be my guest."

She stood there staring at him as if he’d suddenly sprouted horns. Then her gaze darted around the cabin again. "Surely I’m not hearing you right. My family will be frantic with worry."

Luke wondered if she was taking note of how small his cabin seemed all of a sudden. Two months alone with each other, cooped up in his warm and cozy cabin, well, nothing good could possibly come of it. Her eyes shot to the loft, his bedroom, before zeroing in on him again.

"There has to be a way out of here. Once news reaches my family that my plane’s gone down, they’ll think the worst."

"There’s no way out of here until spring," Luke reminded her firmly. "There’s nothing you can do about it. We’re already snowed in."
