Blog Tour, Giveaway & Interview with Hunter West: Selling Scarlett by Ella James!

Title: Sellng Scarlett Ella James
Author: Ella James
Genre: Erotic Romance
Hosted By: InkSlinger PR
Buy Link: Amazon & B&N

Elizabeth DeVille doesn't belong at a party like this—one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.

Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail. 

When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter's den of vices, she's a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn't have, and she's come up with a foolproof way to get it.

Follow Elizabeth—code-named Scarlett—to the lush Nevada brothel where she'll auction her virginity and risk the only thing that's not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil's mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.


This was a fantastic book and a 4 Star Read for me. It was sexy, funny, action packed, suspenseful and had some heart warming and gut wrenching moments to balance it out. It was really different than your typical Erotic Romance read. I can't wait to read more about the Love Inc. Crew!! Be on the look out for my full in-depth review coming soon. In the mean time I have a special guest that decided to answer a few questions for us. Hunter West is one of the main players in Selling Scarlett. I asked him a few questions just to get inside his head a little because he is a little of a mystery in the book :)  
First let me say thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down and answer some questions for us. There are a lot of ladies out there that want to know more about the allusive Hunter West so I am going to dig deep I hope you don't mind *smirks*. 

Please describe yourself in three words. 
I like privacy. 

What is something no one else knows about you? 
I bought a glider and am learning to fly it using only the manual. No lessons. It's at Batshit Ranch in Nevada and I've flown it six times with no trouble. 

You have become quiet the poker player, do you think poker is mostly skill or luck? 
Both. Mostly...both. 

What is the most you ever won in a game? 
$12 million, during the World Series. 

What’s your biggest fear? 
Palmetto bugs. I scream like a little girl. 

What’s your greatest talent? 
Wouldn't you like to know. *wicked grin* 

Tell us a secret about yourself. 
I've got a thing about house plants. I like them. Since I'm not home a lot, I only have cacti. 

If you had a day to do anything you wanted, what would you do? 
Smoke a bowl as the sun sets over my vineyard. 

Do you wear boxers, briefs or go commando *grinning slyly*? 
Boxers are a pain in the ass. I like boxer-briefs. 

So you seem to like escorts have you ever thought about opening your own escort service *big grin on my face*? 
Too much trouble. I'll leave that to Marchant. 

Thank you so much for letting us interview you Hunter. Is there anything else you would like to say to all the ladies reading this? 
See you in my book. 
Ella James Bio:
I'm a 20-something sci-fi nerd with a journalism degree and a serious York Peppermint Pattie addiction. I spend my days baby-wrangling and dog-chasing and my nights tapping on my laptop and hanging out with my writer/editor husband. A fun day for me involves lots of writing, running, and researching topped off with some quality Kindle time. My life's goal is to find an empty cottage in an enchanted forest, install a solar panel for my laptop, and move in - never to be seen again, except in sweatpants.
