Guest Post with Author Tara Chevrestt

Today I would like to welcome to RFTC author Tara Chevrestt. Tara is on tour for her upcoming release, Maiden Behind the Mask and has stopped by to chat. Before I give the floor over to Tara, lets get to know her a bit.

Tara Chevrestt is a deaf woman, a dog mom, a reader, and a motorcycle and airplane buff. She worked as an aircraft mechanic for eleven years before turning to a career in writing. When not chasing her dogs around the house (or writing about them!), she battles over her laptop keyboard with her alter ego, Sonia Hightower.

Tara never knows what a story is going to turn out to be. Whereas Tara writes historical or contemporary romance, humor, young adult, and even a memoir, Sonia pens erotic noir or bdsm. Be it a Tara or a Sonia book, you're sure to find something that interests you.

Places to find Tara:

Who doesn't love a good Zorro tale? I watched them as a child and was so inspired by the masked crusader; I would engage my own father in sword fights. The best thing about Christmas was not presents, but the cardboard tubes that were left as soon as all the wrapping paper was used. It was then time for a sword fight!

When I became an adult, I started to get into women's rights and all that. I said, "Why does he always save HER? Why doesn't she save HIM? Why don't we have a lady Zorro?"

Except for some comic books and an old TV show no longer playing, I found no lady Zorros, especially not in today's literature. So I wrote one myself.

Once I knew what I wanted to write, the rest just came easily. I added some humor and some romance and Maiden Behind the Mask came to be. She is El Capitan, however, and her horse's name is La Reina. The Captain and the Queen. And they make a fitting pair. =)

When Catalina Rodriguez is attacked by a would-be rapist and rescued by the dashing Ricardo Garcia, she not only becomes more aware of the handsome man, but also vows that she'll never be a damsel in distress again. Using the timeless method of blackmail, she convinces her uncle to teach her to fight and becomes a masked crusader in the night, saving damsels from robbers and rough handling.

But scandalous rumors and dwindling funds force Ricardo and Catalina to marry. Not immune to each other's charms, their marriage starts fiery, but when one of Catalina's nightly escapades results in dire consequences, she is forced to spurn her husband's amorous advances…or reveal a secret that could turn him away from her forever.

Ricardo is not a man to be cuckolded or left in the dark. Is his wife having an affair with El Capitan, the masked savior? If so…they will both pay.

Available September 3rd.
