1. Which of your characters do you see yourself in the most?
I see myself a little in all my characters, pulling from life experiences and a whole lot of my imagination in what I’d like to see.
2. Have you traveled for either inspiration or research for any of your books? Where did you go, and what did you see?
I love to travel and when I can combine a little research, the better. More times than not, it turns into inspiration for a new story, hence my many works in progress waiting to be written.
3. Do you have a current work in progress? Can you tell us about it?
As stated before, I’ve got quite a number of them. The current one I’m concentrating the most is the next in the Masters of Tabu series due to release in November. Master Marshal is anxious to get his story out on the streets and he’s pushing me.
There’s a vampire ménage and light bdsm elements in the works, but it’ll have to wait a couple of months before I can get back to it.
4. Hot hunky cowboy, sexy tattooed bad boy, or sleek and mysterious business man?
Funny. Since I can’t pick between them, I’ve actually put those types into the Masters of Tabu. Master Marshal, the one I’m writing now, is a hot hunky cowboy. The tattooed bad boy is Master Dragon (guess what tattoo he’ll have?) and the business man I’ve written and is the first in the series, Master Knight.
5. Please tell us about your newest release.
Master King is the third book in the seven book series. Marcus King is from an oil family (the story line centers around Dallas, Texas for all the books). He’s known Bailey Melchor since childhood, she was six and he was ten. They grow up together because their respective parents are friends and business colleagues. Bailey has a crush on the older boy, he’s not interested. Then, they grow up and run into each other after ten years of being “apart”. There in starts the fun.
6. Do you see yourself as conservative or casual?
When I had the “day job”, I’m retired from it about five years, I was definitely conservative. Today, I’m au casual.
7. Does your hot and naughty scenes come more from personal experience, or imagination?
Of course they come from personal experience! Imagination fuels reality for me.
Jared King has hard rules and plays hard with the submissives at Club Tabu. Living the high life the way he wants has caused more problems with his family. His kink lifestyle is an embarrassment to the King family name. He refuses to settle down and fall in-line with what his father wants. Then there’s his childhood friend haunting his dreams, but the woman told him she despises him. Deep down, he’d defend her honor and lay down his way of life for her.
Bailey Melchor is a boutique owner and daddy’s little girl, except she wants to succeed on her own, not using his money. She’s had one true love, but she can’t stand him. Their one-time hookup turned into a disaster twelve years ago. They meet again at a friend’s wedding, but after too many glasses of champagne, they wake up in bed together. Not Dallas, but Vegas.
Now for a very naughty excerpt!
Within a few seconds of him disappearing from view, something stroked down her leg then up toward her ass. A few taps on each cheek didn’t initially hurt. He moved to her shoulder blades and tapped a few times on each side there. A slight pause in his movements had her feeling confident the caning wouldn’t be so bad, but she quickly changed her opinion with the next stinging sensation on her ass happened. Her eyes flew open.
“Shit! That hurt.”
“Watch your language, sugar. I didn’t give you permission to speak. Do it again and I’ll add more to your punishment.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.” A few blinks and the tears that welled instantly dropped onto her face.
“I personally prefer these wafer-thin canes. They act as an excellent deterrent to subs getting out of line. Correction in behavior comes fast. Not to mention the lovely marks left on your luscious ass along with the sting that will last for hours.”
“Yes, Sir. It feels…wonderful. My new…favorite. Sir.” Two more strikes made the last word come out slowly. She meant to be sarcastic, but much to her surprise, the swats he delivered with the cane smarted and definitely turned her on. How interesting. Maybe this really is my new favorite.
She arched her back impatiently, trying to meet the instrument of torturous pleasure. “Wow, you certainly know what you’re doing with that thing.” Her voice continued to tremble as she spoke.
The cane struck her ass slightly harder. “If you needed financial help, Bailey, why didn’t you contact me? You know I would have found a way to help you.” His statement shocked her. He would have helped her? Even after ten plus years?
The other butt cheek received a smack. She couldn’t concentrate on a single thought. Her breathing came in short pants, her palms wrapped around the metal bar above her head. He didn’t deliver the blows in any particular pattern up and down her backside, or if he did she couldn’t tell. Each tap, whether hard or soft, shocked her skin alive. Each bit with a sting that hurt but also aroused. Her clit grew so tight and sensitive it felt as if Jared pinched her there with every hit he made.
“Bailey? Answer me.” The deep, sensual voice commanded.
Her insides coiled tightly as he jarred her out of her thoughts. She shook her head and managed to say, “No. No, I couldn’t ask you.”
The next thing she knew, a thick finger slipped deep inside her wetness, and his thumb stimulated her clit. “Why not?”
Her voice trembled. “I want to make it on my own. Even if I wanted your help, I didn’t know how to find you.”
His bare chest rubbed against her back. “No excuse, Little Bee. I take pleasure in taking care of you,” he whispered in her ear.
