Today I'm very excited to be the next stop of Against the Wall Blog Tour by Rebecca Zanetti! Against the Wall is the first book in a new and exciting series by Rebecca with Entangled Publishing and in celebration of its release the author stops by today to answer a few of my questions and introduce to us all her new story! So, let's welcome Rebecca and don't forget to check at the end of the post for the contests details and you can also check here for the full Blog Tour schedule :)
Rebecca: Thanks so much to the Books to Brighten your Mood gang for having me over today! I’m so happy to be here!
Anna: Hello Rebecca and welcome to Books to Brighten your Mood! I'm very happy for having you here today! Could you please tell us a bit about your newest release with Entangled, Against the Wall?
Rebecca: Against the Wall is about a sexy lawyer named Jake Lodge whose job it is to stop a golf course development in his Montana home town. He’s instantly captured by golf course designer, Sophie Smith, whose job it is to push the golf course through. Well, there’s a bit of tension that leads to the bedroom…and hopefully beyond.
Anna: What are your plans for the future, what should we expect from you
Rebecca: Jake has a couple of brothers and a sister, and I’d like to give them each a story. Quinn Lodge is the sheriff in town, and every instinct he owns tells him that pretty Juliet Montgomery, the local art dealer, is in some sort of trouble. She is and has to fight her attraction to the hot sheriff, but, well, that turns out to be impossible. Their story is called UNDER THE COVERS, and it’ll be released in May.
Anna: Opposites attract according to the law of physics! Is that union explosive or something that can't be helped according to your opinion?
Rebecca: Great question! As far as I’m concerned, the more explosive, the better. In physics, the things that attract electrically have charges with opposite signs, positive and negative. In romance, it’s the different energies and lives of the characters that both push and pull people together. When they finally collide…wowza!
Anna: Could you please give us a short physical description of your two main characters, Jake and Sophie?
Rebecca: I think I’ll let the characters show you how they see each other:
Jake’s first take on Sophie:
Sophie’s vanilla scent still wrapped around him. His hands itched with the desire to haul her back on the horse, but he contented himself with studying her head to toe. Sunlight turned her mass of shoulder-length curls to shiny wheat, the color both sweet and sassy. God, she was beautiful. Maybe not in the conventional movie-star way, more like a fierce “I’m going to knock you on your ass” way. He’d fought in combat, and he’d seen courage. The woman had shown bravery and brains when she’d faced him and settled her stance to fight. An irresistible combination.
Sophie’s take on Jake:
The scent of man tempted her much more than the flowers.
A long-sleeved black T-shirt emphasized strength and muscle, while faded jeans hung low on tight hips over his long legs. Black cowboy boots crossed negligently at the ankle, and he’d tied his dark hair back at the nape, throwing the sharp angles of his face into stark relief. Black eyes reflected humor and determination in equal parts as he held firm. The panoramic window behind him framed rugged mountains and a placid lake in gentle stillness.
The wildness outside only enhanced his.
Thank you so much for having me here today! Let me ask this: Do you think opposites attract? If so, why?
Anna: Thank you Rebecca for being here today :)

Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom…
Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly—and quite literally—swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.
Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jack Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball—and being every inch the shark lawyer—so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.
Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…
