Sometimes submission can be hot…

Vicki’s never had a problem standing up for herself. So when a meathead at the gym grabs her butt, she has no problem punching him in the face. Gavin, the gorgeous gym owner, throws the guy out, and his tender, but insistent demand to tend to her injured hand makes Vicki hot. The buff, sex-god-come-to-life is everything she’s ever wanted, and he’s only too happy to show her how good sex can be.

Gavin is entranced by the feisty woman, even though he already has more than enough on his hands with the gym and his work as a volunteer fire fighter. The last thing he needs is this bundle of contained fury tossed in his lap, but something about her calls to his inner Dominant. Not only that, her body responds to him like no other. But when he discovers someone is stalking her, it’s no longer all fun and games. Submission is all about trust…and after a brutal attack, trust is the last thing Vicki is willing to give…to anyone.

Reader note: contains light BDSM, spanking, and submission elements

Revolution in France, rebels in England, and one woman caught in the crossfire…

 For her unwitting participation in a plot to embezzle the Exchequer, Lady Abigail Houghall has spent the last two years exiled to the city of Bath. A card sharp, sometime mistress, and target of scandalous gossip by the London Beau Monde, Lady Abigail plots to escape her gilded cage as well as the prudish society that condemns her. But the times are not easy. France is in chaos. The king has been executed, and whispers of a similar revolution are stirring in England. And because of her participation in the robbery plot, the Spymaster of England is blackmailing her into passing him information about the members of London’s upper crust.

When the dashing English spy Daniel Ridgeway takes a seat at her card table and threatens to expose her for cheating, she has no choice but to do as he demands: seduce the leader of the revolutionaries and learn what she can about their plot. As she’s drawn deeper into Daniel’s dangerous world, from the seedy backstreets of London to the claustrophobic catacombs of a war-torn Paris, she realizes an even more dangerous fact. She’s falling in love with her seductive partner. And the stakes of this game might just be too high, even for her.

She’ll trust him with her body—but not her heart…

Pretty, petite April Myers is a valued and well-loved waitress at the exclusive BDSM club, Collar and Cuffs. She’s especially well-loved by the big, muscular Dom, Detective Steve Ratner. So when he discovers her with a black eye and bruises after missing a shift, he’s understandably horrified. He suspects her ex, who has been sniffing around her again, uninvited. And he has no intention of letting the man anywhere near his precious April.

April has always liked playing with Master Steve. She loves the affection and security she receives from him—not to mention the most incredible orgasms. But even though she dreams of being with him, she’s not willing to risk her heart again. She fights to keep her feelings for him under wraps, clinging fiercely to her independence. He’ll have to settle for her body, which she willingly offers him in the dungeon, but she’ll never give anyone her heart.

Interview with J. Richards

I’m happy to present my interview with J. Richards. Her book Burning Submission
releases July 3rd!

BurningSubmission_ByJRichards-200x300

(blurb and excerpt below)

* * *

Hi J., Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in. When did you begin writing and why?

I’ve always wanted to be an author. My creative brain has poured over poems and books and photography for as long as I can remember. In short though, 2015. 2015 is the year I wrote “Yes, Sir” and things kind of snow balled from there!

What is your writing process like?

I sit down with a notebook and think of how my characters will look visually. Then I jot down what may happen in their story, sometimes my work follows the outline, sometimes it runs off on a whole new tangent. Next, I turn on some music, pour some ice coffee and try to avoid checking Facebook!

How important is writing momentum to you?

I LIVE for the days where I am on a roll and ideas come without a struggle. I never try to force momentum though. Nothing good ever comes from that.

Writer’s block—real or hype?

So real! Some days I spend hours staring out over the top of my laptop, praying something will spark.

Any advice to writers just starting out?

Just keep writing. You never know what may come of something. A small idea could turn into your next novel when the time is right!

Do you listen to music when you write? Does music ever influence your writing?

It does! Each of my books seems to have a different genre of music that help bring them to life. “Burning Submission” was influenced by country music, while “Sinners” was punk rock.

What songs or types of music did you listen to while writing this story?

Country music, a lot of Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert.

Tell me a little about the characters and the conflict in Burning Submission.

Victoria is a very independent woman who finds herself caught in a drama hurricane. They say bad things come in threes and it seems like she is filling the quota a lot faster than she can handle. Gavin is a man’s man. He volunteers as a fireman as well as owning his own gym. He seems to always be around when Victoria falls into trouble and his calm strength pulls them together. He is patient and strong when she is weak and vulnerable, those characteristics allows her to open up to him in ways she never thought possible.

Where’s the story set? How much influence did the setting have on the atmosphere/characters/development of the story?

Burning Submission is set in present day New Hampshire. The small town in which the characters live, is very much like where I grew up. The small town way of life is something I HATED as a child but learned to appreciate when I moved to the hustle and bustle of buiser places. I think the setting itself had a lot of influence over how the characters interact with each other. In towns such as that, your neighbors are your family and vice versa.

Were your characters difficult to write, or did they seem to spring easily from your mind to the page?

Gavin and Victoria were very easy to write. I think their lives have always been inside my mind, just waiting to be written down.

How often does your muse distract you from day to day minutiae?

I think the better question is, “How do you fit in your daily duties, when all you think about is your characters and their lives?” When I am writing, my mind is consumed by the actions and events of my work.

If you had to write your memoir in five words, what would you write?

Where is my iced coffee?

What do readers have to look forward to in the future from J. Richards?

I have so much in the works! Burning Submission is not a standalone book, its sequel will be out soon! After that, my personal favorite book (to date) will be making its way into the world and oh how exciting that is! I guess after publishing my first piece I got caught up in a whirl wind!

Interview with Rhonda Laurel

I’m happy to present my interview with Rhonda Laurel. Her book is Tempting Fate.

TemptingFate_ByRhondaLaurel-200x300

(blurb and excerpt below)

* * *

Hi Rhonda, Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in.

When did you begin writing and why?

I began writing in college as a way to pass the time in between classes.  I wrote a short story and sent it to a magazine hoping to get some free criticism from an editor and to my surprise they accepted it for publication.  That was the spark that ignited my interest in being an author.  It was decades later that Ebb Tide was published but in that time I kept working on my craft.  I like to write because it allows me to tap into the worlds in my head and I get the share what my imagination conjures up with my readers.

How important is writing momentum to you?

Momentum is crucial to writing.  When I wrote For the Love of the Game I had no idea it would be the basis for The Blake Boys series.  By the time I tried my hand at the second book, MVP, I knew the characters or actually, they told me who they were and what their romantic journey was supposed to embody.  Had they been written at the same time, MVP would have been a totally different book.

Writer’s block—real or hype?

Writer’s block is alive and well and lurking around every corner.  I try to avoid it but when it happens, I ride the wave.  I use the down time to give the characters a mini vacation while I gather my thoughts.

On what level must writing succeed in order to resonate with a reader?

I like to believe writing succeeds when you evoke a rainbow of emotions in the reader.  A few laughs, a good cry and a hopeful optimism about the story and the characters are a good combination for giving the reader a fulfilling read.

Do you listen to music when you write? Does music ever influence your writing?

Music is very important to my writing process.  I create playlists for all of the couples in my stories and post them on my website.  It helps set the tone and fortifies the geographical locations in the books.  The Blake Boys jet sets around the world but their roots are in Texas and I have plenty of country music as well as other genres on their playlists.  Many of my readers follow those playlists and it makes me smile when they write and say they listened to it while they read the book.

What advantages or challenges does a writer in your genre face in today’s fiction market?

The romance genre is taking on a broader spectrum than ever before and provides various outlets for budding writers.  The disadvantages are that the market is raging with so many books, it’s a struggle to be noticed and retain the attention of a reader.  That’s where unique content and attracting readers who truly resonate with your work come into play.

Tell me a little about the characters and the conflict in Tempting Fate.

Channing Blake is an attorney and baby of the brood in The Blake Boys series.  He’s a handsome, smart, funny, earthy cowboy who loves his family and living on the Twelve Horseshoes Ranch.  Cassidy Shaw is also an attorney.  She is beautiful, intelligent, feisty, independent and guarded about many things.  It’s her apprehension to trust and be vulnerable that brings her to a cross roads when she and Channing reconnect at a friend’s engagement party.  Channing and Cassidy learn together why facing the past is crucial to living in the present, while hoping for a bright future.

Were your characters difficult to write, or did they seem to spring easily from your mind to the page? 

Channing has been on the series landscape for a while, so it was a matter of fine tuning his character.  He’s a Blake so the foundation of his character was already there but he’s also kind of nerdy and reserved compared to his women chasing brothers.  Cassidy popped up in my mind one day and it was no looking back as the character told me who she was and a little about her history with Channing.

Tell us a little bit about the heroine and hero and the challenges threatening their love.

Channing tries to get his love life in order as he returns home to Texas and begins working at his family’s company.  His ex-girlfriend Emma wants him back but he’s leery of her motivation for wanting to reconcile.  A visit back to DC for a party brings Channing face to face with Cassidy, a fellow law school student that he had a thing for and old feelings ignite.  Cassidy disappeared for a year and Channing wants to know why.  Her answer sets them on course that will change both their lives forever.

What do readers have to look forward to in the future from Rhonda Laurel?

The next book in The Blake Boys series is Executive Desires.  Shy CFO Bo Jamison has been honing his dating skills since that fateful trip to Las Vegas in Cowboy’s Heart.  Bo’s attempt at being a player is short lived when love comes into his life in the most unexpected way.  Executive Desires will be book ten in the series and has a tentative release date of July 2015.

Love can heal the most stubborn heart…

Attorney Channing Blake is looking forward to a new chapter in his life. He’s graduated law school in Washington, DC and has returned home to the Twelve Horseshoes Ranch to take a job with Blake Enterprises. But he’s not the only one who’s back in town. Emma Winterbourne, his on-again, off-again girlfriend, has failed to make it in the Big Apple and is back in Texas, looking to pick up where she left off with good old Channing. Although the chemistry between them has always burned hot, Channing isn’t sure he wants to be her whipping boy any longer.

But when he heads back to DC to attend a friend’s engagement party, he becomes sure of it. A chance meeting with the beautiful Cassidy Shaw dredges up all the old feelings he’d felt for her in law school. He’d dated her once or twice, but she’d mysteriously disappeared without a word. His attempts to find her had come up empty. He’d had no choice but to move on. Now, with Cassidy right there, looking at him with that same longing he was feeling, he knew he owed it to himself to follow his heart. But when Cassidy disappears again and won’t take his calls, he knows something isn’t right. Cassidy is keeping something from him, and he’s not above using Blake resources to find out what.

Interview with Serge de Moliere

I’m happy to present my interview with Serge de Moliere. His book is White Heat.

WhiteHeat-BySergeDeMoliere-200x300

(blurb and excerpt below)

* * *

Hi Serge, Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in. On your latest novella, where is the story set? How much influence did the setting have on the atmosphere/characters/development of the story?

The story is set in Northern Canada, which is critical for this piece. As it opens, the female protagonist is fleeing from her abusive husband in a blizzard, which makes it very difficult for her to travel on foot.  She becomes trapped in the frozen ice and loses consciousness. Since it is essentially a desolate wilderness, there is no one around who can help her.  Luckily, a man happens upon her. Rescuing her for reasons of his own, he takes her back to his cabin.  When she awakens, she finds herself naked in bed.  There is no way to leave during the snow storm, and so she is trapped in this isolated cabin with an attractive but rather furtive stranger whom she knows nothing about. Clearly, the setting is everything in this story.

Were your characters difficult to write, or did they seem to spring easily from your mind to the page?

The characters sprung into being fairly quickly. In real life, more than one naive young woman has been attracted to a good looking man whom she falls madly in love with and then marries, only to discover too late that he is cruel and abusive.   Therefore, the situation in which the protagonist finds herself is a common one and I drew on that in writing this story. What makes it even worse is that, in this case, her husband has taken her far away from her friends and family to a deserted wilderness where she has no one to turn to except him.  And this is what prompts her to flee into the icy snow.

 How often does your muse distract you from day to day minutiae?

When I’m in the middle of a story, ideas may rise up even at night. When they do, it’s usually a good idea to get them down as soon as possible. Left untended, they may drift off and be lost. And strangely, sometimes the most exciting possibilities pop into your mind unexpectedly.

Do you enjoy research? Or is research a necessary evil?

Research is often necessary and especially any time an author really wants to invigorate a character or setting.  For example, in the classic novel   “Grapes of Wrath”, the author actually visited the locale and many of his descriptions of people and settings were not imagined but were depictions of reality although a bit modified perhaps.   That is what made that novel so vivid and memorable.

The limits of my own brain are terribly finite and the only way to expand the worlds and characters I create in stories is by doing research.  The fun is in finding out about new locations or characters and increasing your knowledge base.  For example, when writing “Hurts So Bad”   I had to research back injuries and physical therapy in order to present a more realistic story. If I just made it all up, it would have been incredibly inaccurate.  And oftentimes the input of a great editor is invaluable in this.

Do you listen to music when you write? Does music ever influence your writing? 

Music can inspire creativity at any time. Favorite songs or melodies often influence writing, whether happy, sad or otherwise.  For example, in one story that’s not yet published, a song by Cristina Aguilera definitely affected my writing.  It may affect the disposition of a character or alter the mood of the story entirely. And, of course, when dealing with romance and love, music is especially evocative.  As a writer, I can not only use it to spur imagery in my mind, but I can literally incorporate it into the story. For example, in another still unpublished novella, jazz music plays an important role.

What do readers have to look forward to in the future from Serge de Moliere.

My latest novella will be released in the next few weeks. It is entitled, “Hurts So Bad”.  Briefly, it’s about a young, attractive African American woman who has suffered a back injury after her very first horseback riding lesson.  She is quite frustrated by her disability and makes the difficult decision to go for physical therapy due to recurrent and severe back pain. What happens when she does is a surprise beyond anything she might have anticipated.

Can a mere mortal Viking tame the daughter of a goddess?

When Scotland’s King Kenneth orders his death and kidnaps his sister, the Viking Brökk—the Malice Striker—plans his vengeance: he’ll steal the king’s bastard daughter from Sumbarten Abbey and use her to buy his sister’s freedom. But his schemes go awry when his liege lord commands him to wed Skatha—and when he finds five women instead of one at the Abbey, none will claim the King as father.

When the Viking abducts Skatha and her women, she’s bewildered. Why did Brökk seize her? Why does he want her for his wife? She weds him willingly enough when he threatens to kill her companions, but she vows to control her own destiny and escape. For if the Viking discovers her secrets, the laws of his people will force him to cast her aside…or kill her. And even Skatha, daughter of a goddess, might not escape the Viking’s wrath…

Sex hot enough to burn their worlds down…

Pietro doesn’t think he has time for love. Being a demon king and part owner of Seven Sins Inn leaves him little time for women. But when his friends claim that they’ve found the perfect match for him, Peitro is determined to prove that he doesn’t need a set up–he can find his own date, thank you very much. Undeterred, his friends send him to investigate a “problem” at one of the Inn’s guest functions, where Pietro sees the woman of his dreams, right there in the very kissable flesh.

Paranormal negotiator Callisto Monroe went to the Seven Sins Inn for a friend’s wedding, hoping she could scope the place out for work. But she didn’t plan on being swept away by the hot, dark-haired demon, or spending a weekend having the hottest sex of her life. All that’s well and good. But when things get too hot to handle, how is she supposed to protect her heart?

Trust is the ultimate weapon in the battle against evil.

Single mother Shay McKeon is no dummy—she’s intelligent as well as street-smart. But when she receives a phone call threatening her children, she rushes headlong into the hands of evil.

Saved from certain death by Mason Constanza, who calls himself a Guardian, Shay is taken to the Realm of Light, where she learns her husband never abandoned her as she’d thought, and that good and evil are nothing like she’d imagined. Learning to deal with her own existence as a Guardian, Shay’s attraction to Mason grows. But she has her own demons to battle, and when her daughter is abducted, she’ll have to trust Mason and his team. But Mason has his own ancient battles to fight…

Interview with Kira Hillins

I’m happy to present my interview with Kira Hillins. Her book Grand Prize.

GrandPrize-ByKiraHillins-200x300

(blurb and excerpt below)

* * *

Hi Kira, Thanks for stopping by to talk a little about your writing! Let’s jump right in. 

Do you prefer to extensively plot your stories, or do you write them as they come to you?

Though I do have a conflict and an ending in mind for the stories I write, I’m definitely a write by the seat of your pants writer. Plotting stories takes patience and time. With my busy lifestyle, time is something I don’t have a lot of.  That saying, if I extensively plotted my stories, I don’t think I’d begin writing them. Grand Prize actually began during nanowrimo. I finished 30k words by the end of November and just kept writing after that.  I had a lot of fun that month!

Tell me a little about the characters and the conflict in Grand Prize.

A nurse at the hospital, Melanie Cranberry rarely has time to find a meaningful relationship. Her cat Fred is her favorite companion. She wants to find love, but the local dance clubs offer nothing but one night stands. When her best friend Samone signs her up at a dating service, she wins a raffle that includes two men.

First prize is Cage Niching.  Cage is a bit of a sex fiend.  He has two girlfriends, but they can’t give him what he really wants.  Love.  Marriage. Kids. More importantly, he wants revenge for the people that killed his friend at a sex club he used to frequent with his friends.  The dating service can give him everything he wants in one perfectly wrapped package.  Of course, nothing ever works out the way it’s supposed to.

Second Prize is Victor Wine, a narcotics detective determined to get a drug called Rock off the streets.  He’s known to his friends as a perfectionist and a bit of a workaholic, so he doesn’t have time for a love interest, nor does he want one. To get close to a meticulous drug lord called The Rock Maker, he agrees to go undercover at the dating service.  There he meets Melanie who may just lead him to the biggest bust of his career and a love he never wanted to have.

 All three characters have different goals for the dating service.  Melanie wants to meet someone who doesn’t complain about her odd work shifts.  She wants to fall in love and is hopeful.  Unfortunately for her, the scope of her involvement is much bigger than she imagined.

Victor and Cage have a dangerous agenda.  They’re using her to find out who killed their friend at the sex club. They need her to locate the Rockmaker and put an end to their lust for revenge.

Do you listen to music when you write? Does music ever influence your writing?

I always listen to music when writing. I always listen to music. Period. Music has a huge influence on me. Certain bands helped me work through despair and challenges life has thrown at me. I’ve also had a lot of good times. We can’t throw parties at my house without music.

What songs or types of music did you listen to while writing this story?

I’m a sucker for Seattle bands, but I listened to ambient music during the writing of Grand Prize.  One of my favorite songs is Move For Me by Kaskade and Samantha James.

Do you have a favorite genre? Is it the same genre you prefer to write?

I don’t really have a specific favorite. I read The Wolfen by Whitley Strieber years back and enjoyed the nice mix of contemporary, horror, suspense, and thrills.  The story also has an unusual love story, but has its place.

I prefer to write of love and unworldly anythings, whether it’s horror, science fiction, or fantasy. It really just depends on whatever feels right as I write by the seat of my pants.  J

Do you have a favorite author who introduced you to the genre?

Margarette Weiss and Tracy Hickman captured my heart in The Darksword Trilogy.  They introduced me to Joram, a dark tortured hero with no magic in a magical world, and I fell in love.  The story is absolutely amazing.

If you had to write your memoir in five words, what would you write?

Move west or die trying.

What do readers have to look forward to in the future from Kira Hillins?

I have another book coming out in the Fall.

I will be signing books at Wicked Ways Masquerade Ball in Baker City, Oregon on Halloween weekend with my friend, author Kimberly Adkins.

Two hot men. Twice the danger.

 

Melanie Cranberry joined the dating service to meet a nice man, fall in love, and spend her nights cuddling in bed. Who knew that one five-dollar ticket for a raffle would win her two men instead of one? Now, per signed contract with Match Making For Happiness’s Sake, she’s required to go out on a date with each man to discover which will win her heart.

Prize number one, attorney Cage Niching, joined the dating service to find a woman to settle down with, or at least, to settle him down—after he finds out who murdered his friend. All he has to do is get admitted to the secret, invitation-only level of a certain sex club, and all he must do to get the invite is bring his Match Making date, Melanie Cranberry, prove they’re in love, and have sex with her in front of as many witnesses as possible. Which doesn’t look promising as long as her second date keeps hovering around her…

Prize number two, narcotics detective Victor Wine, wasn’t looking for a date. Desperate to get the drug that killed his girlfriend off the streets, he’s joined the dating service to get close to the woman who lives near the hangout of a major distributor. Only thing is, he actually likes the Cranberry woman, more than he wanted to. And now his investigation has put her right in the drug cartel’s sights. Keeping her out of harm’s way and playing the perfect date won’t be easy. And there’s something about her other date that raises his hackles…

The deeper the woods, the darker the secrets…

 

Arden Wilde is at the top of her game. She’s got a gorgeous, attentive boyfriend on the fast track to a promising medical career, she attends the best culinary school in the nation—the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and is nearly finished with her externship with an eminent chocolatier. But when she’s called home to Grimm Lake, California to help care for her ailing grandmother, Arden agrees without hesitation.

Running through the woods becomes one of her passions, and she runs every day on her way to help care for her grandmother. Until she meets the enigmatic Tate Foster, the darkly handsome, tattooed manager of the Little Bear Brewing Co., sunbathing nude by the path to the lakeshore. He invites her to swim with him, but Arden declines—she has a boyfriend, after all. But it isn’t long before thoughts of Tate become more than she can ignore.

When she mentions him to her grandmother, she’s given a stern warning. The Fosters are “old Grimms,” from one of the original founding families in the town, who keep mostly to themselves. There are legends, ugly stories, about the old families and their Germanic roots, and about the Grimm wolves—shapeshifters who lived double lives as wolves and humans. Arden doesn’t believe a word of her grandmother’s fairy tales, until a night of Tate’s fierce, skilled sexuality drives all rational thought from Arden’s mind.

When a tourist is found murdered in the woods, savaged by animals, Arden isn’t sure what to believe. She knows she can never go back to her old boyfriend in New York. And the brazen, feral Tate has no intention of letting her go anywhere…
