Sutton Capital Series by Lori Ryan – Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Series description:

Heartwarming romance meets heart-stopping suspense in NY Times Bestselling Author, Lori Ryan’s wildly popular Sutton Capital Series. There’s a flavor for everyone. The original Sutton Capital books are contemporary romance with a twist of suspense in each. The Sutton Capital Intrigue books take the suspense a little further, and the Sutton Capital On the Line Series has all the heart and romance you want, but the suspense piece stands out in these police procedural thrillers. No matter which line you’re reading, you’ll see family and old friends return again and again through the series. Legal Ease, book one in the Sutton Capital Series, and Cutthroat, book one in the Sutton Capital Intrigue line are both set free at all retailers!

Legal Ease: He needed a wife on paper, she needed a way to pay for school. Neither bargained for the danger their marriage-of-convenience brought on.

CEO Jack Sutton isn’t about to be backed into a corner by the stipulations of his mother’s will. She might have wanted to be sure he was married by the time he was thirty, but that doesn’t mean he needs to give in. As the head of a powerful venture capital firm, there’s one thing he’s learned. There’s always a way around anything standing in his way. This marriage clause is no exception.

Kelly Bradley got into the law school of her dreams, but the financial aid she was counting on didn’t come through. When she finds out Jack Sutton is looking for a wife in name only, she propositions him to get the funding she needs. What could be the harm in linking herself to a well-respected businessman for a year? It’s not like he’s hard to look at or tough to be around.

But will her fix end up costing a whole lot more than either she or Jack had bargained for? When her life is on the line, Jack finds himself racing to save the woman he’s fast losing his heart to.

Heartwarming romance meets heart-stopping suspense in the Sutton Capital Series. Legal Ease is the first book in Lori Ryan’s wildly popular Sutton Capital Series, but it can be read as a stand-alone book.

And for you, my friends, I have an EXCERPT from Legal Ease.

Legal Ease greenAfter dinner, Jack suggested they sit out on the patio to watch the stars. Mrs. Poole went into the kitchen to clean up while Aunt Mabry, Jack, and Kelly went outside with a bottle of wine and three glasses.

Aunt Mabry and Jack sat down in Adirondack chairs on the patio while Kelly poured the wine and lit the three squat candles sitting on a low glass table between the chairs. Jack took his glass from Kelly, looped an arm around her waist and pulled her down onto his lap.

He felt her tense briefly, but then she relaxed into him and he grinned. He knew he was getting to her as much as she was getting to him. Jack worried for a minute that it might be cruel to tease her as much as he did, but he quickly dismissed the thought. It was fun and he loved making her blush and squirm. Reluctance from a woman wasn’t something he was used to, but damn, it was like an aphrodisiac.

Jack kept his arms around Kelly’s waist and his hands rested on her tummy, but as they drank their wine and made idle conversation with his aunt, he found one hand moving just high enough on her stomach to let him brush his thumb back and forth on the lower curve of her incredible, full breast. He meant to do it to torment Kelly, but it backfired on him as he found himself burning with heat for her.

Jack took his other hand and brushed the hair back from her neck, pushing it to one side as he leaned over her shoulder to speak so that his words caused his breath to brush against her soft skin. He barely got a word out when Kelly sprang from his lap.

“I, uh, I’m going to go for a run. Forgot to do my workout today,” she said, pulling the excuse out of thin air. In fact, Jack was fairly sure she hadn’t gone for a run the whole time she’d lived there so far.

“I’ll, um, I’ll see you guys later,” she said as he grinned at her and stifled a laugh.

Aunt Mabry shook her head as she watched Kelly walk away.

“She’s an odd one, Jack,” Mabry said.

Jack grinned. “One of a kind Aunt Mabry. One of a kind.”

LoriAnd here’s Lori!
Hi, and thank you for being here with us! What is the first book that made you cry?
I’m not sure what the first one was, but I can guess it might have been The Outsiders (I was in love with that book as a teenager) or Robyn Carr’s Virgin River (the scene where Mel finally breaks over the loss of her husband and Jack is there to hold her).
Oh, I read Virgin River and that scene broke me, too!
So, is being a writer a gift or a curse? I still can’t make up my mind about it.
Both! I mean, face it, we have a great gig here getting to live in our fantasy worlds. We get to talk to readers and share our worlds with you. It’s pretty awesome! On the other hand, everything we see in real life can lead to a daydream about a new plotline or a new character. It can be a little maddening to have all those voices talking in your head.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? 
I’m both! I’m very extroverted in a lot of situations and don’t have any issue speaking in front of a group, but at the same time, going to a small function or dinner party or whatever where I don’t know people is really hard for me. My neighbor asked me if my husband and I were going to an event in our area and when I said no, she asked why. She was floored when I said, “we don’t really like talking to people.” It was the truth, though! Now, on the other hand, I love going to book signings and meeting and talking with readers. So, I’m some weird combination of all of the above, I guess.
How would you feel if no one showed up at your book signing?
Yikes! To be honest, I’m always surprised that people are reading my books. It’s an amazing feeling to have a reader tell me they know my books and love them. So, yeah, if no one showed up, I guess it would hurt. I’d be sad. It wouldn’t stop me from writing, though. This job is too much fun!
Thank you, Lori!
