Meet the Author




Arizona author Vicki Lewis Thompson's natural element is heat. Her first publishing success while still in pigtails was a weather rhyme for the local newspaper: The sky is blue, but I am not. I love the sun, I love the hot.

Small wonder that some years later Vicki sold her first romance to Harlequin's steamy Temptation line. After writing more than fifty books, the bestselling author still gravitates toward the heat, including Temptation's popular Blaze imprint. Besides Temptation, she's published with Superromance, Love & Laughter and Duets. She's also been a featured author in several continuity series and anthologies. A finalist numerous times for Romance Writers of America's RITA award, Vicki has won the Desert Rose's Golden Quill Award and has been honored by Romantic Times and Affaire de Coeur.

Prior to selling her first book to Harlequin and finding her bliss, Vicki tried on other careers for size. Teaching English proved too restrictive when she discovered she didn't like being trapped in a classroom any more than the students did. Journalism seemed like a better idea, except that she kept getting assigned to scary stories like rattlesnake milking or parachute jumping.

Finally, her husband suggested she write a romance, which she took as a fine testimonial to their life together. Even better, the career was a perfect fit. Writing romances provides freedom from a schedule without fear of imminent death.

Besides writing, which she's quite passionate about, Vicki's favorite activities are traveling and laughing. Marriage to her indomitable husband, He Who Journeys Without a Map, has provided ample doses of both. Now that the kids are grown and Vicki has a laptop, she's finally positioned to combine all three of her passions. The trip has just begun!

    amusing romantic romp

    Though he has been to Las Vegas before on the rodeo circuit, Saguaro Junction, Arizona rancher Noah Garfield only returns for the wedding of an old rodeo friend. Being in town makes Noah sadly contemplate on the state of his relationships as all his friends have one woman in their lives. He reflects back a decade to Keely Branscom posing as the centerfold for Macho magazine when he sees her entering a strip joint. Noah immediately assumes that Keely is about to peel the flesh again. <P>In actuality, Keely is a reporter for Attitudes Magazine and does stories on sexual fantasies. Never forgiving Noah for his rejection of her, she decides to let him think the worst of her, not that stripping is a bad occupation in Keely¿s mind. When he goes as far as offering to save her from herself, she cannot resist playing along with a man she has always loved, but feels was born old, prim and proper. <P>NOTORIOUS is an amusing romantic romp filled with innuendo and plenty of heated scenes yet somehow the theme never is buried under an avalanche of page after page of sex. The jocular and blazing story line centers on relationships that need to embrace differences rather than scorn them so that everyone can win. Keely makes the tale happen in a Holly Golightly kind of way that shows why this new imprint chose Vicki Lewis Thompson to be the opening act. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Another great read!

    I enjoyed this one! Keely grew up in a small town and she always pushed the limits. She moved away after posing for a centerfold. Many years later, on the streets of Las Vegas, she runs into Noah, the man she was always hoping for. She intends to get payback for him turning her down all those years ago, only to get caught up in the game, herself. Its fast paced, fun and sexy. Vicky Lewis Thompson shows off her amazing talent again!

    What Happens in Vegas.....you know the rest!

    Again, Vicki Lewis Thompson has penned a hot, sassy and fun love story with NOTORIOUS. This book reminded me of the saying "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas". And that's what most of the book is about.

    After ten years the fates decide that Keely and Noah will again meet. Noah is in Vegas to be in his friend's wedding and Keely is on assignment to write an article for her magazine Allure.

    Noah walks by a strip club and immediately his old "crush" Keely comes to mind, the hometown's Bad Girl. As fate would have it, they bump into each other and Noah gets the impression she is going into the strip club to apply for a job. Since her father and soon to be sister-in-law work for him and the sparks are still there, Noah feels that he must protect her and invites her to stay with him for the weekend in hopes that he can counsel her. Well, Keely has other ideas. Why? Noah rejected her 10 years ago and so did her family and hometown when her photo was featured as a centerfold in a magazine.

    Well, hold on to your hats, because if you want sex, steam, sass and tears, then read this wonderful and incredible love story. You will laugh, sigh and cry at the same time.

    This book also reminded me of another five star VLT book; LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, another "Bad Girl" and fun book.

    Book Description:

    Years ago, wild child Keely Branscom shocked her hometown by posing nude. But she'd been under rancher Noah Garlfield's skin long before then-ever since that painful night Keely kissed him.and he pushed her away.

    When Keely runs into Noah in Vegas, she figures the time for revenge is at hand! She has the perfect plan to inflict a heap of sexually charged retribution on Noah.and this time it's his turn to be rejected. But as Keely's seduction starts yielding some steamy results, she realizes that this time, the notorious wild child is in serious trouble!

    :


    Dear Reader,

    Eight years ago Harlequin senior editor Brenda Chin invited me to write the first Harlequin Blaze novel, and that honor ranks as a major highlight of my career. Harlequin Blaze was a new millennium concept then, and the line continues to set the standard for sensuality and great storytelling. With innovation like that, no wonder Harlequin Books is now celebrating its sixtieth anniversary of publishing the romances women want to read! I'm thrilled to be a part of that legacy.

    When Harlequin Blaze debuted, it brought a sense of adventure and freedom to both authors and readers. I was inspired to write Notorious, a no-holds-barred story of a woman who allows a man to believe the worst about her, and then tortures him with glimpses of how naughty she can be! Creative freedom is a heady experience, both for me and for my characters.

    Apparently that heady experience still calls to me, because I'm starting a whole new series within Harlequin Blaze that debuts in the summer of 2010. I couldn't return to Blaze without returning to the cowboy heroes I love, men like Noah, the hero in Notorious. Poor Noah-he's determined to save Keely from a decadent life. He has no idea what he's let himself in for with a feisty woman like Keely!

    I'm sure Noah and Keely are delighted to be part of Harlequin's sixtieth anniversary, as am I. Here's to sixty more wonderful years of reading!

    Gratefully yours,

    Vicki Lewis Thompson

    You Mean Vegas Wasn't Hot Enough Already?

    If you've liked Vicki's books in the past, you'll love Notorious. Vicki's sense of humor comes out every time Keely and Noah get near each other. Her new Blaze novel kicks up the heat from her previous Temptation Blazes -- to about 210 degrees in the shade.
