Happy release day to Tessa Bailey – the paperback of Too Hot to Handle is now available! Check out MY REVIEW of the book here, as well as a Q&A with Tessa below!
Author Interview: Tessa Bailey
Who is your favorite Clarkson?
Belmont. He’s the final book in the series, but the whole series revolves around him. He’s the epicenter of the family, even if they don’t realize it. They orbit around his strength and he’s just my beautiful, tortured man.
What was your favorite scene to write in Too Hot to Handle?
The campfire scene where the Clarksons perform the “trust exercise” in the middle of the desert. That scene was so clear inside my head going into the project, I raced to get there. It’s packed with humor and sadness and sibling bonding. I loved writing it.
What made you decide on a road trip as the theme of the series?
I took a road trip from San Diego to New York in 2002, the day after I graduated high school—and I never left New York. There’s something romantic about that epic of a journey. Every state is so different and the potential for new, interesting situations really made the choice to write a road trip so compelling.
Can you tell us anything about the upcoming books of the series? (I’m dying for Belmont’s!)
Ahhhh! So much love for Bel. Thank you. Peggy’s book comes out in April (TOO HARD TO FORGET) and it’s a second chance romance that is so honest and sexy, the keyboard singed my fingers as I wrote it. I mean, college football coach meets cheerleader? Hubba hubba. And you’ll see a lot more Belmont, too, and get some more clues about what makes him (and his heroine, Sage) tick.

Series: Romancing the Clarksons #1 (full reading order below)
Paperback Publication Date: November 29th 2016
When rescue looks like a whole lot of trouble . . .
The road trip was definitely a bad idea. Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn’t seen in years. When rescue shows up—six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle—Rita’s pretty certain she’s gone from the frying pan right into the fire . . .
Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town, and he loathes it. The moment he sees Rita, though, Jasper knows he’s about to be sorely tempted. There’s something real between them. Something raw. And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn’t just for tonight—he’s forever.

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
