Synopsis: The greater the risk, the hotter the reward…
Homicide cop Troy Bennett had a reputation on the Chicago PD for being fearless and in control—until the night his daredevil partner is killed during a raid. From that moment on, he swears he’ll never again be responsible for the loss of a loved one. To escape his demons, Troy transfers to the NYPD, bringing him up close and personal with Ruby Elliott, a beautiful, street-savvy pool hustler.
Reckless and stubbornly independent, Ruby embodies everything Troy’s avoiding, but when she walks into the pub he’s at with his new coworkers and blows his carefully laid plans to hell, Troy knows he has to have her—risks be damned. But there’s a connection between Ruby’s shadowed past and a case Troy’s working involving a notorious Brooklyn felon, throwing her safety into jeopardy. Confronted with his biggest fear, will Troy push Ruby away to keep her safe or fight to keep her in his arms where she belongs?

– Hi Tessa, thank you so much for stopping by my blog again!
Thank you very much for having me! I’m thrilled to be back again so soon 🙂
– So, I absolutely LOVED your first book. What can we expect in HIS RISK TO TAKE?
I’m so glad you loved Protecting What’s His! If you loved the dirty talk, the intense sexual chemistry and the little bit of danger in the first book, you will enjoy His Risk to Take as well. Ruby is a sexy pool hustler who lives a dangerous lifestyle. Troy is a cop who recently lost his daredevil partner, and as a result, he has sworn off being responsible for the death of a loved one. But his chemistry with Ruby is off-the-charts hot and he won’t be able to resist her.
– Do you have a favorite place to write?
In bed. My husband even bought me a brand new desk for my birthday and I almost never use it. The words just seem to flow better when I’m propped up against the pillows.
– What’s your favorite quality in a man?
Confidence. It goes such a long way. A guy who isn’t afraid to approach a girl in front of his friends and take a shot. Not over-confident, mind you. That’s kind of a turn off. Just quietly confident.
– If you could be any Disney princess, which would you be and why?
Belle. My heroes are usually a little Beast-ish, too. It would be a good match.
