Blog Tour–Inside Bet by Katie Porter

Zero to kinky in 3...2...1

As assistant director in an accounting firm, Heather Morris is at the top of her game. Her straight-laced colleagues wouldn't believe the secrets she hides: her wild teenage past, work-of-art tattoo and nipple ring.

Her orderly life veers off course when she's approached at a wine tasting by an arrogant pretty boy with a dirty mind and a hardcore dangerous profession. She finds herself tempted to step outside her respectable façade for some well-deserved excitement.

Captain Jon "Tin Tin" Carlisle knows women. Loves women. One glimpse of the nipple ring under Heather's conservative blazer lights up all his instincts. He's stumbled upon a rare treasure: an exotic beauty with a sexy laugh and a taste for dares.

After a red-hot hour of roulette, their simmering attraction bursts into an exploration of mutual passion that tests even Jon’s erotic limits. Soon he craves something he's never desired before. More. But for Heather, more means trusting, and trusting leads to trouble.

Now Jon must decide if the best sex of his life is worth chancing his heart on a woman who shields hers so well.

Warning: Contains hot power play featuring a fighter pilot who comes from old money but knows all about bringing the dirty. Also: a nipple ring, sex on the hood of a hella sweet sportscar, and one teensy, tiny, wickedly naughty fluid exchange.

Katie Porter is the co-writing team of Lorelie Brown and Carrie Lofty, friends and critique partners of six years.

Both are multi-published in several romance genres. Carrie has an MA in history, while Lorelie is a US Army veteran. Generally a high-strung masochist, Carrie loves weight training but she has no fear of gross things like dissecting formaldehyde sharks. Her two girls are not appreciative. Lorelie, a laid-back sadist, would rather grin maniacally when Carrie works out. Her three boys love how she screams like a little girl around spiders.

 Older Heroine/Younger Hero

By Katie Porter

At the start of Inside Bet, Heather is less than two weeks away from her thirty-second birthday. Captain Jon Carlisle of the US Air Force, is only twenty-six. Of course, he’s a super posh twenty-six. He’s a fighter pilot, from old money and sophisticated in a way that many men never grow into, even when they’re old and grey.

To put it quite simply, Jon Carlisle is the bomb. So why should it bother him that Heather Morris is a few years older than him?

Why should it bother any man if the woman he’s interested in is older?

To me, attraction and personal connection is a matter of the person you are on the inside. How you get along and where your morals and values and interests line up. For the most part, I think people would agree with me, especially when it’s the hero who might happen to be five years older than the heroine.

Funny how it all gets turned around when it’s the heroine who’s a little bit older. I mean, what does that really matter? For Heather, it means she got stuck with a very 80s-era name that she’s not particularly fond of. For Jon, it means less than nothing. Because he’s ultimately secure in himself. That doesn’t mean he’s above teasing her now and then, however:

He eyed her over the rim of his wide wineglass, giving the rich red liquid a swirl. “You know, you don’t look like you’ll be thirty-two in a week.”

She narrowed her eyes. “What, exactly, do you expect a thirty-two-year-old to look like?”

“I’ll get a plate of food in my lap if I say ‘withered crone’, yes?”

“And then a fork to your testicles.”

A chuckling smile renewed his dimples. “Can’t have that. No, you look…fantastic.” As if that compliment were too spontaneous, or maybe too normal, he slanted his gaze toward where her robe gaped slightly across her breasts. “Fantastic everywhere.”

But as you can see, Heather more than holds her own. She’s snappy. Jon likes that about her. I liked it about her too, when it came time to write.

Now, when we happen to mention that Heather is a few years older than Jon, most people expect that to be part of the conflict between them. It’s not. More, Jon and Heather are incredibly guarded people because of things that have happened to them (and things they’ve done) in their life before meeting. It’s made them both cautious—when it comes to their hearts, at least. When it’s a matter of bodies and naughty, dirty kink, they’re all over it. Just read Inside Bet and you’ll see.

November brings the m/m Christmas-themed CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR, and in January, LEAD AND FOLLOW will launch the five-part “Club Devant” series of erotic multi-partner romances set in a hot New York City burlesque club.

(Your choice)

a Rafflecopter giveaway





  1. I am not sure if I could date a younger man especially since my reference point is out of touch. I have been married for 28 years so it's a little hard for me to picture.

  2. It would depend on how much younger. If he was up to 10 years younger, I don't think I'd have a problem but any more than that and I'd feel like I was robbing the cradle.


  3. For me it depends on how much younger, but I wouldn't mind him being a little younger than me:) I guess it also depends on his level of maturity too.


  4. It would depend on how much younger he was. A few years would be ok, but I would prefer no more than 5 years (10 max). Anymore than that and I would feel like a cradle robber.

  5. Sure I could date a younger man, but probably not someone young enough to be my son (other than the fact that it would put him in the illegal range...). I think some guys can be mature enough but also sometimes I just want fun and younger guys can be a lot of fun LOL

  6. Im not sure. I dont think i could. But who knows!

  7. yes i can as long as we have things in common,
    congrats on the books whoo

  8. Yes!! I think age is just a number. As long as you like each other, why not?


  9. I'm here to thank everyone for stopping by! Jon is a younger guy, but he sure knows how to bring out the best in his girlfriend. And besides, if 32 is old, then I need to start looking into retirement condos! I hope you all enjoy INSIDE BET and the rest of the "Vegas Top Guns" series.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by, Carrie and for allowing us a chance to win your amazing book!

      *Big hugs to you and Lorelie* :)

      julie :)

  10. For me, it depends on the maturity level-- I'm in my midtwenties, so younger entails the risk of overgrown frat boy behaviour!

  11. Thank you so much, Everyone, for stopping by and leaving a comment! *big hugs* :)

    There's 3 more days left in the contest before it ends. Make sure you've left a comment to validate your entry. Don't get disqualified!
