Sunday Guest Star: Meet Calista Fox! #giveaways

High Heels & Heartthrobs!

Meet Calista Fox—Author of the New “Leave Your Shoes On” Series

from Grand Central Publishing/Forever Romance


A little Legally Blonde, a little Big Bang Theory, a little Sex and the… Shoes!

4.8 Stars on Amazon!!!


Lola Vonn isn’t sure exactly when it happened, but sometime between ages seven and twentysomething, her best friend, Alex, got hot. Really hot. He’s hotter than the blazing Arizona sun—and definitely hotter than the nerdy-cute mathlete she grew up with. When she needs to crash at his apartment while looking for a place of her own, Alex becomes a temptation she can’t resist. But while unbuttoning Alex’s buttoned-up self is scorchingly fun, wild child Lola fears risking the best friend she’s ever had on a fling.

Alex Reed has wanted Lola since they were teenagers and now that she’s parading around his condo in sexy stilettos and short nighties, he can’t stop the more-than-just-friends fantasies he has every time he looks at his curvy, blonde roommate. Luckily he’s no longer the painfully dorky teenager he once was—and it’s high time he showed Lola that he’s the man for her.

From Calista…

I’m thrilled to be visting Cheyenne’s blog! I write all manner of romance—contemporary, new adult, paranormal, cowboy… All with a healthy dose of HOT! My publishers include Grand Central/Forever Romance, St. Martin’s Press and Harlequin.

This week was a particularly exciting one for me, with the release of Book 1 in my sexy “Leave Your Shoes On” series, What Lola Wants. Although I’ve had numerous book launches, this was my very first Big 5/New York debut. Tuesdays are Release Day and the frenzy is akin to being on the floor of the Stock Exchange! (At least, that’s how it felt to me!) The days leading up to a launch are pretty hectic, with interviews and reviews and whatnot, but it’s doing everything you can on your special day to reach readers—and knowing dozens of other authors are doing the same—that is a little overwhelming but also exhilarating. It’s days like this that make me so grateful for social media and the ability to connect with new readers!

While my backlist is slowly being re-released, I’m rolling out another NY debut book on October 6. Burned Deep is Book 1 of the “Burned Deep” trilogy that also includes a follow-on short novel for my sexy secondary hero.


It was a little scary how my body trembled and my breathing wouldn’t return to normal. But I couldn’t escape the intensity of our desire for each other—and how vibrant and alive he made me feel. Like I’d merely existed before. Gotten by. Now I was acutely aware of my surroundings. Of myself. Of him. Of every sensation blazing inside me…

Ari DeMille has spent her life focusing on the details and planning down to the minute. Haunted by her parents’ ugly divorce, Ari believes the only way to prevent emotional scars is to always maintain control. But when the devastatingly handsome—and powerfully dominant—Dane Bax, her new boss, pushes Ari’s boundaries, she must learn to shatter the ties that bind her if she is to sate her newfound desires… But giving into insatiable lust comes with a price. Dane’s luxury hotel business is threatened by a consortium of dangerous men who threaten everything Ari holds close. And as the stakes are raised, Ari is treacherously close to losing all control of her life…and her heart.

When I’m not writing, I love to travel, drink wine, and discover new recording artists on iHeart Radio. Actually, I do all of that while I’m writing! I also have two small dogs that are the light of my life—Nikki (Pomeranian) and Riley (Maltese)—in addition to my husband, of course!

So what’s a blog post without a CONTEST? Leave a comment and you’ll be entered to win a $10USD Amazon gift card; a print, autographed Advanced Reader Copy of Burned Deep (U.S. delivery); or the electronic ARC of Burned Deep. All randomly selected!

MaxiAnd finally, I’ll leave you with a COVER REVEAL! This is Book 2 in the “Leave Your Shoes On” series—What Maxi Needs, coming in December!

About cheymccray

Cheyenne McCray is an award winning, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author who is a rare native Arizonan but refuses to be put behind glass as an endangered species. In her spare time she loves to torture characters--whether they're misbehaving or not—and kill off deserving individuals. She also totally gets off on blowing things up. All fictionally, of course. She'd rather chew glass than write sweet and sugary. Give her a hideous demon or particularly nasty villain to slay any day. Cheyenne enjoys creating stories of love, suspense, and redemption—in some cases. She enjoys building worlds her readers can get lost in. Hopefully they'll find their way out, but stranger things have been known to happen. If you would like to find out what odd and unusual things Cheyenne is up to these days, cruise her website any time, take a look at the bizarrely normal yet strange FAQs, and even drop her a line or two. Just not too hard—those things hurt. You might even learn a few things about that kinky author, Jaymie Holland. (Just don't tell Cheyenne's mom.

    • Thanks, April! This first book is Lola and Alex’s story, but they do make appearances in the next two books in the series, WHAT MAXI NEEDS and WHEN STACI TAKES CHARGE. More sexy-hot nerds and gorgeous shoes!


    • Okay, this is gonna be a weird comment, Tina, in the funniest way! There’s film/TV interest in LOLA and I had a dream the other night that I walked into a movie theater and what was playing? LOLA!! I sat next to you and the first thing you said to me was, “So when’s the last time you came to a VOS meeting?” I kid you not! That is so you, isn’t it??!!!!


  2. I first read your work in the Secrets series. I also have a few of your books and am happy to hear that some of your older titles are being re-released. Happy to see you as a guest author here. I look forward to many, many more years of enjoying your words and stories!
