Erotic Romance Weekend - Olivia Cunning (Guest Post & Giveaway)

Good morning everyone and welcome to our Erotic Romance Weekend event *woohoo* hosted by myself and Kelly at Secrets of a Book Lover! Every day from now until Sunday we will be featuring your favorite erotic romance authors at each of our blogs with great guest posts, fun interviews and awesome giveaways! To kick things off I have one of the coolest and my absolute FAVORITE authors joining us for a guest post and giveaway. Please give a warm welcome to Olivia Cunning and the Sinners groupies!

Since the first two books in my rock star erotic romance series, Backstage Pass and Rock Hard, were released, I've done a lot of guest blogs. I've been interviewed more times than I can count. The characters in my Sinners on Tour series have been interviewed--including all five members of the band (Brian-lead guitar; Sed-vocals; Jace-bassist; Eric-drums; Trey-rhythm guitar). I think it's time that Sinners' groupies were interviewed. Let's see what they have to say about their favorite fictional metal band. They should have an interesting perspective.

Olivia Cunning: Good morning, ladies. Take a moment to introduce yourself and tell us where you're from.

Darlene: I’m Darlene. I’m from Des Moines, Iowa.

Janet/Eiffel Tower Girl: I’m Janet. From Las Vegas. I work at the Paris casino there. Thanks to Sed, I think I’m permanently stuck with the nickname Eiffel Tower Girl.

Heather: You’re Eiffel Tower Girl?

Eiffel Tower Girl: Yep.

Heather: Wow, I can’t believe you posted that video of Sed and Jessica going at it. That must’ve been some night. Nothing cool like that ever happens at my job. Um, sorry. I’m Heather from Austin, Texas.

Lauren: I’m Lauren, also from Austin. Heather’s my best friend.

Olivia Cunning: Who is your favorite member of Sinners and why?

wpb19332df_0f.jpgDarlene: Well, until he got married, it would have been Brian. He’s such an amazing guitarist. And gorgeous. And for a rock star (I’ve met a lot of them), he’s really nice, but since he’s now unavailable, I guess I’d say Trey. He’s incredibly sexy and also an awesome guitarist. I have a thing for guitarists. But if Brian gets a divorce, I’m so on that.

Heather: Sed isn’t known for being nice, but he is definitely the hottest. He’s just so handsome and big and muscular and has this voice that… oh, my, God, you know?

Eiffel Tower Girl: Yeah, I know. He’s really vocal during sex, too.

Heather: Oh my God, Eiff. Did you do him?

Eiffel Tower Girl: No, I heard him when he was getting it on with Jessica.

Darlene: Well, I had him a couple of times before he got back together with Jessica. Now he’s not interested in having any fun.

Eiffel Tower Girl: No way! Lucky!

Darlene: He did not disappoint. Any of us. I think I’ll go after Trey next time Sinners tours through Des Moines. He’s still single and loves to party.

Lauren: I think I like Jace best. He’s cute.

Darlene: Don’t let that cute face fool you, honey. Jace is a beast in the bedroom.

Lauren: Even better. I like them rough. He’s also a great bassist. A little shy though.

Darlene: If that’s what you want to call it.

Heather: Can’t I just have them all? They’re all so hot. And talented, I guess.

Darlene: I’d do any and all of them all. No question.

Olivia Cunning: How close have you gotten to the band? Any interesting stories you'd like to share?

Eiffel Tower Girl: I think everyone knows how close I got to the band. Well, Sed, anyway. He autographed his shirt for me before he knew that I’d caught him and his girlfriend on video tape. Took his shirt off right there in front of me. I almost died! The man has the most amazing abs and pecs I’ve ever seen in my life. I so wanted to push his girlfriend off the observation deck. He hardly noticed I was alive with her there.

Darlene: I get backstage to see the band every time they’re in Des Moines. At least I used to. I’m not sure how that will work now that Sed isn’t giving out backstage passes any more. My most interesting story would be the first time I managed to score a backstage pass. Let’s just say it takes Sed Lionheart a really, really, REALLY long time to have an orgasm.

Eiffel Tower Girl: Didn’t take him all that long with Jessica. Maybe you just aren’t very good.

Darlene: At least he knows my name, Eiffel Tower Girl.

Heather: Lauren and I have been to fourteen Sinners concerts. Unfortunately, my Mom always comes with us—she’s a total fan, too—so we haven’t been able to get backstage.

Lauren: Yet. I did catch one of Eric’s drumsticks at a show. He threw it into the crowd and it landed in my cleavage. I sleep with it under my pillow.

Heather: Speaking of cleavage. I’ve lost quite a few bras at Sinners shows. Somehow they always end up on stage.

wp72af3dc5_0f.jpgOlivia Cunning: How do you feel about two of the Sinners being tied down in serious relationships?

Eiffel Tower Girl: Jessica Chase must die. Sed is mine.

Darlene: I met Brian’s wife, Myrna, once. Well, she wasn’t his wife yet. She seemed pretty nice. But way too old for him.

Lauren: As long as Jace stays single, I’m happy.

Heather: They deserve to be in love. I just wish it was with me!

Olivia Cunning: What would you do if the members of Sinners walked through the door right now?

Heather: Why? Are they supposed to come here?

Lauren: Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God.

Heather: Someone grab a paper bag. Lauren’s hyperventilating again.

Darlene: Excuse me. I think I need to run to the restroom.

Eiffel Tower Girl: You just want to see if they Sinners are really here. I’m coming with you.

Lauren: Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God.

Heather: Lauren, you know I love you, but I’ve got to get to the Sinners before those other two hog all the attention.

Lauren: If you leave me here and I miss them, you die.

The SinnersOlivia Cunning: I guess that’s one way to get rid of Sinners’ groupies. They’ll do anything to get close to the guys in the band. Can you blame them?

  31. Hot covers for your books! And it sounds like what's inside is even better, who can resist a sexy man using his hands...running them up and down with nimble fingers...the guitarist. What were you thinking?

  42. I've got my copy of Backstage Pass. Would love to win Rock Hard to go with it.

  43. I haven't read either of these yet! I love the groupie interview! Those girls are definitely hooked on the band.

  44. do you think it's more of a challenge to write a series than a standalone book?

  45. Adding these to my wishlist right now. As a lover of old rock-Ted Nuggent, ACDC, Van Halen, Metallica- sounds right up my alley.

  46. omg is so would love to have a copy of this book! I loved the interview so much =)

  47. Do you have a say on the book covers?

    Rock hard sounds great- I can't wait to read it. Thanks.

  49. My copy of Backstage Pass is currently being held hostage by my best friend. This is seriously one of the hottest series I've read in a while.

  53. What a great idea to have the groupies be the interviewees! I know to an author, there's so much more happening than just what we see with the main characters, and it's fun to get to see inside the world that exists beyond the pages.

    Very fun interview!

  54. Love the Sinners. Cannot wait for Jace's story!

  55. I feel in love with the idea of this series from when I first saw Backstage Pass info on the web. I have it on ecopy but would love a signed copy. I am really enjoying the series so far and looking forward to the other band members stories when they release.

    Is there any thoughts on spin-offs etc once all members have been featured?
