Pursuit of Innocence by Bethany Rosa Virtual Book Tour

What are four things you can’t live without?

The Kindle app on my phone. My Tesla. It's not to save the world, folks; I just like to go fast. My house in Arizona. It’s my happy place with cactus and sunshine. Well, that leads me right to my fourth: sunshine. I feel like I was supposed to say my husband, which is also true, so give me a fifth, and we’ll call it good.

What is your favorite television show?

It’s a tie between Schitt’s Creek and Ted Lasso. They make me laugh and cry in a single episode. Two things I don’t do very often, which sounds terrible, but I’m just not a very animated person. It’s all in there somewhere, though. I think.

If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why?

Any character that meets a prince and falls in love with a happily ever after. Because who wouldn’t?

What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?

The Pursuit of Innocence audiobook will come out sometime in May. Book two in The Pursuit Series, Dangerous Pursuit, will be released by the end of the year.

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Soooo many. 50 Shades of Gray was a huge influence. I think it was one of the first books that got people talking out loud about a genre that was previously kept silent. It also stuck to the romance formula so well. I love authors Rina Kent and Katee Robert, who go out of the box, stay there, and make it big. Their books are some of my all-time favorites. I love TL Swan, Vi Keeland, and Ana Huang. I could go on forever. There are just too many to name. There are days I ask myself why I’m writing when all I want to do is read…

“I’m done waiting around. You’re mine. No more games or pining over someone else when it’s me you want. You won’t remember his name after I get through with you.”

Lily knows exactly what she wants in life. To graduate, land a high-paying job, and forge her own way. Nothing will distract her. Until the ultimate playboy, billionaire Sebastian Dubree, barges in. Not to be overlooked, Lily’s longtime crush, Jackson, decides she’s worth the fight.

Reluctant to succumb to either, she quickly becomes a challenge to conquer.

Lily must decide between the familiarity of her childhood longing or the newly discovered  passion ignited by the dominant CEO. But can she surrender without losing herself in the process, or will someone take matters into his own hands?

Boundaries blur between desire and resistance in this gripping coming-of-age romance, leaving readers yearning for more.


I hit a wall. A solid, warm wall that smells dreadfully sinful. Before I have time to process, two firm hands are on my shoulders to steady me. “Hey, watch where you’re going” comes the deepest, sexiest voice imaginable, which would be incredibly hot if the words spoken were anything other than rude and demanding. Looking up, which is crazy, considering I’m one step higher, I freeze as my eyes land on a dark, handsome god of a man who looks like he wants to commit murder. What is it with me and jerks tonight? 

His eyes get bigger, and his brows furrow as soon as my shocked gaze meets his. He has short black hair that’s longer on the top and styled perfectly. His menacing eyebrows are folded downward from scowling at me. The dark scruff that shadows his face is so sexy, trimmed razor straight, accentuating his perfectly chiseled jaw. Mentally slapping myself, I apologize. 

“Crap, I’m so sorry. I didn’t see you there.” He doesn’t release his hold. 

“That’s because your head was down. Your eyes should be looking forward.” His voice is hard and demanding. 

Flustered and—I reluctantly admit—slightly turned on by his strong, firm grip and penetrating stare, I stand there frozen in place. After what seems like minutes but I’m sure is only seconds, I snap out of it and apologize again. “Sorry, I’ll watch where I’m going from now on.” The words rush out as I pull away to leave, this time keeping my head up. I think I hear him say something else behind me, but I don’t stop. Running into one of the hottest guys I’ve seen in a while should’ve been the highlight of my night. Instead, I’m more irritated. Do all good-looking men have a license to be an ass?

Bethany Rosa raised four amazing daughters before fulfilling her dream to become a writer. Her goal is to ignite passion in readers through her erotically charged stories. When not immersed in writing, Bethany finds joy in life traveling the world alongside her husband of 25 years. Home is divided between the mountains of Montana and the Arizona sunshine.
