*RECOMMENDED FOR AGES EIGHTEEN AND UP DUE TO EXPLICIT SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND STRONG LANGUAGE*

When Gladiator Inc, an adult toy company expands their market to familiarize the ‘vanilla’ world with the elements of BDSM, the result is a pay-per-view reality show with video feeds streamed live to subscribers. The show, Dom Wars, is a competition to determine the Top Dom that will become the spokesperson for the company. The contestants all wear cameras to film every moment and angle of the competition, while they complete various challenges to determine who has ultimately Dominated various elements of themselves. The hero and heroine of the series, Lucian Bane and Tara Reese, have barely made it into the Sixth and Final Round of Dom Wars. This week-long Survival Round will determine the Top Dom, once and for all. The contestants are taken to an uninhabited island, where they will have to cross formidable jungle terrain. First Dom to reach the boat anchored on the other side of the island wins the million dollars and the title. Seems simple. Except Lucian’s old adversary, the Sadist Jase Duff from Round One, has been tasked with making sure none of the five teams make it to the boat. If he is successful, he wins the prize, only it’s not money that Jase Duff cares about, its revenge on Lucian and Tara. And his sadistic need to inflict pain makes it game on.

My name is Lucian Bane, and I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to fit me into categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, or Confounding Dom work too. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over. I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can lose myself in. I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (And women, to let them know Doms like this exist.) I want to challenge men to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. Consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you. Inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

Fun Facts about Lucian…

  1. I love salt and vinegar chips
  2. I love coffee
  3. I hate liver
  4. I love the lonesome cry of locusts at dusk
  5. I love antiques
  6. I want to live off the land, in the mountains in a remote cabin with Tara and our future family
  7. I love the smell of Pine Sol
  8. Love the smell of a campfire
  9. Love the smell of fresh cut grass
  10. I love swimming in a cold river
  11. I love sleeping with a box fan on (lol old habit)

As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.

Fun Facts about Aden…

  1. Might, or might not, have bad dreams about penguins.
  2. Had no idea who Justin Bieber was until a few days ago when Wheels enlightened me and changed my life forever. Not.
  3. Until recently, hadn’t gone to see a movie at the theater since “The Horse Whisperer”. I’m not happy about sitting in the dark with that many strangers.
  4. Loves babysitting the neighbors Little Doms, except when they’re flushing my bathroom rug, or doing something worse.
  5. Drinks a mixture of coffee and hot cocoa instead of coffee.
  6. Not into sports – balls aren’t intended to be hit, batted, kicked, thrown, or otherwise abused.
  7. Lived up to a lifelong goal of making a woman wet her panties… just not in the intended way ;)
  8. According to a certain Little Domme’s mom, big hands and feet mean big other things. And everybody knows moms know EVERYTHING.
  9. Has a horse named Joe. Why Joe? Because it’s far easier to say “Joe, you bastard, you bite me and I’ll take your head off” than “Stardust Lucky Bastard, you bastard, you…”
  10. ADEN IS NOT: 1. Afraid of bugs 2. Innocent 3. Sweet 4. A clean freak (Just can’t stand NOT clean) 5. A workaholic (OK, that one’s a fib) 6. A good liar 7. Intimidated by children who aren’t the Little Doms next door. 8. A Momma’s Boy (Close to and protective of Mom is different) 9. Unlikely to shoot a criminal coming through the front door 10. Above kicking a fool’s ass, literally or figuratively.

Book Review ~The Coolest Way~ Nicholas Tanek

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself

by:  Nicholas Tanek

18673607[1]

e4785-newsynop

Okay. So no one actually kills themselves in this book.

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself pulls you into the early 90’s New York City rave scene, in all its chaotic, psychedelic glory. The narrator grabs you by your wrist and drags you behind two teenage lovers from New Jersey as they tumble through a whirlwind of reckless hedonism that eventually spirals into a dark, devastating world of drug addiction and heartbreak.

As a teenager, Lynn cried, “No one is ever going to write something for me.” Nearly two decades later, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Nicholas did just that. The gesture came too late for our unlikely heroine, but his heart was in the right place. A broken heart… but a true love. Reunited after years apart, Lynn and Nicholas embraced their love and sexuality, and embraced each other, despite troubled pasts, despite illness, despite all of their imperfections and mistakes. They shared the kind of honest and shameless connection that few have had the honor of knowing, and most would never understand.

“We’re not hurting anyone. We’re just living life without caring what anyone thinks about us.”

“It’s the coolest way to kill ourselves,” Lynn said.

So turn the page, and pull the trigger.

Nicholas Tanek is an American ghostwriter from New Brunswick, New Jersey. He graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors in English. He has been a ghostwriter for over 15 years.

My name is Nicholas Tanek and I wrote The Coolest Way as a tribute to the love of my life who passed away 2 years ago at the age of 37. This book is the most important thing that I have done in my life. This true story tells a love story that spans two decades. We dealt with depression, drug addiction, abuse, homelessness, prostitution, and many other devastating issues. Although it was just a summer romance that faded away, we came back years together. We saved each other. Love and honesty saved us. It was not religion. It was not psychotherapy. Love saved us. I promise you that this is a very unique and personal book. It is a true story that is filled with hard drugs, kinky sex, and an endless amount of music references. Please read with an open mind and an open heart. It’s the coolest way…

5 – Roses – Unique Writing – Open-Honest-Gritty-Raw

How do you even express yourself for a book such as this, I’m not sure.  I’m completely at a loss for words here just as much as I’m at a loss as to how to mentally repair myself.  This Author really knows how to reach way down deep into your soul and rip everything out.  I honestly feel destroyed, damaged, wrecked, and torn asunder, however at the same time I do feel more complete, fulfilled, or maybe just healed enough to move on with my own life and brush the struggles from my past aside.  No matter what the Title to the book is people, his words hold a true meaning for real life and true love.

5e4ce90e4b830fa2fc5b708d610366a7[1]

5 – Hearts – True Love – Soul Mates

The Author tells this story of his own real life circumstances in a very true, gritty and raw way, it truly is a work of art and unique to his own style of writing.  He tells us about two people who are destined to be soul mates for I believe this is what they were, a true romance and a forever kind of love.  They start out very young yet share many experiences and go through a lot of emotional turmoil together.  This is his story, written for his love, Lynn.  This is his tribute to her as she passed and left him to mourn and struggle to overcome his grief. 

Quotes:

“Like a suicidal person on a cliff,  you just jump.  Love is a feeling that is worth dying for.” 

“Romance and danger are intertwined.  The danger makes the romance sexier.”

“Jealousy is a dangerous mistress who will always leave you bruised.”

5 – Tears – Emotional Turmoil

The Author introduces us to the most honest and strongest woman I think I’ve ever read about, she was emotional but tough, independent, strong and her strength helps her overcome things no woman should ever have to go through.  She has been through hell and back, struggling through addiction, mental and physical abuse, battered, bruised, homeless and later prostitution.   She was an inspiration, she was a survivor.

Lynn wanted more from Nicholas, she wanted the whole American Dream, a husband, a family, the white picket fence and all.  Nicholas wanted to live first, he was still very young and sex, drugs and rock and roll were what this era was all about, he wanted to experience it all.  He did.  She did.  They did.  This story is the consequences from those actions and their experiences.

11497598-vintage-elements-and-borders-set-for-ornate-and-decoration (1)

The most unusual and uniquely original things about this author’s style of writing is his honest and open ability to share these experiences without regard to anyone’s censor.  Meaning who cares what other people think, words do hurt, but he is honest and true to himself and us and willing to share these struggles and life’s experiences with the world.  I absolutely admire him for this and always will.  He is my inspiration and my muse.

Nicholas goes on to tell about experimenting with kink and opens up about his fascination with Femdom, which he later explains in detail.  He tells about his experiences with sex, drugs, raves, and I truly think that music somehow played a big part in his coping mechanism to overcome his addiction to many things.

I could probably talk for hours about this beautiful one of a kind masterpiece but I shall have to stop now, I’ve said to much already.  This book has changed my way of life and my way of thinking, I definitely feel as if everyone should have a copy of this and experience a sense of freedom.  Open yourself up people.  Pick this copy up, find love, happiness, heal, move on and have joy.

Mr. Tanek I cannot do justice with this review, all I can say is Thank You so much for changing my way of thinking and helping ME heal.  You should not put a number of stars on perfection!

**Trigger warning. This novel contains situations of perversity and dubious consent. It is not a love story, but more of a journey through a few short days in the life of a madman. What you see is not always what you get, reality is altered through his eyes and sometimes there is no happily ever after.

SYNOPSIS:

I am a sociopath. 

I know this because I diagnosed myself.

I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from a very prestigious university.

I am charming, attractive, and you probably want to sleep with me.

I take what I want, when I want, and I enjoy picking the most tragic of all my patients to experiment with.

I have no remorse, I am unrelenting in my pursuit of tragedy, and I am about to meet my match.

Her name is not important, I am only allowed to call her Mistress. She is a femme fatale, a patient, and now an obsession.

She will destroy me, I will do anything to get inside of her.

I can already feel her inside of me.

EXCERPT:

As I approach my office, I am hit with a familiar scent. Cigarette smoke. An earthy, fragrant smell that tickles the edge of my memory. I know this brand from somewhere, but I don’t know where. 

I follow my nose down the short hallway to my private area and open my door. 

Smoke hangs heavy in the air, clouds of it billow away from me as I enter. I cut a path through to find out who fucking dares to pollute my office like this. 

“Shut the door, Alexandre,” a smooth female voice announces as I enter my space. I turn and see a figure seated on the couch, a halo of pure white smoke envelops her head and she exhales a languid breath that lingers as she speaks. “We need to talk.” 

I don’t know why, but I obey. I shut the door, turn back again and look at her. She seems familiar; I think I’ve seen her before. She’s wearing a cherry red cocktail dress, dangerously high black leather heels and elbow length white silk gloves. Her hair is black and falls in waves around her face; her eyes are just as dark. I stare into them and wonder if they ever end. 

“Who are you and how did you get in here?” I demand and walk to the window. “Please put out your cigarette, this is a no smoking office,” I continue and slide the glass open. 

“I don’t want to, I feel more comfortable with a cigarette in my hand,” she purrs and smiles at me. Her lips are dark red and her teeth are perfect, white and straight. She’s an incredibly beautiful woman. “Think of it as part of my…treatment.” 

“Why are you here this early? Who scheduled you? And once again, how did you get in?” I demand again. She laughs and leans back on the couch, her long legs stretch out in front of her, emphasizing their perfect shape. 

She doesn’t answer, but says, “Doctor, I believe I have an urgent issue we need to address. Please,” she gestures towards my desk, “have a seat.” She draws one last breath from her cigarette, exhales as I sit and butts it out on the bottom of her shoe. Red, Louboutins. In a flash I remember where I’ve seen her. Just last weekend at the restaurant. She was there, was she watching me? 

I take my seat. She doesn’t seem like the type I want to argue with, at least not until I get to know her. I decide to go along with her little game and give her the illusion of being in control until I can determine how she needs to be treated. “Well? What is this about?” I ask and set my satchel down on the floor next to my chair. 

She takes the cigarette butt and flicks it onto the floor at her feet. She leans back again and looks me up and down, landing on my face, her own a mask of disapproval. “You have been a very, very wicked boy, Alexandre,” she says, her voice still a purr. She has the slightest accent and draws out the last part of my name with a sexy drawl. It’s not Russian, Eastern European perhaps? Middle Eastern? I can’t tell, and with her ambiguous dark features, I couldn’t put a finger on her ethnicity either. She’s beautiful and a complete conundrum. 

“Why would you say that, Miss…what did you say your name is?” I ask her, leaning across the desk. I forgot to give the surface a swipe yesterday afternoon and it still carries the slightest pungent scent of the sex that happened on it. A gentle nudge, a reminder of the wicked things I have done. 

“I didn’t,” she says and smiles. She almost moves in slow motion as if underwater, elegant and purposeful. “I’ve been watching you, Alexandre, and I’ve seen you get up to all kinds of terrible things.” 

“What kinds of things?” I ask her, deciding to continue engaging in her little delusion until I know more about her. 

“Things to women, vulnerable women,” she says and raises an eyebrow. “Patients, women you pick up in bars, online…you are very busy and very wicked.” 

“How do you know this?” I ask her, feeling rather uncomfortable at this particular line of accusation. I’m very careful with my activities, especially with patients. “Have you been following me?” 

“Not following, but watching. They’re very different thing. I’ve had my eye on you for a while now, you know,” she tells me and watches my reaction. 

“What is your name?” I demand again, feeling that familiar sharp prick of anger rising behind my eyes. 

“My name is unimportant. You may call me Mistress.” 

“Mistress?” I repeat and laugh, “I don’t think it’s appropriate to be calling you that. Now please tell me your name so I have something to call you.” 

She leans forward on the couch, crosses her ankles and stares me down. After a moment or two of uncomfortable silence, I realize I have to capitulate to get anywhere with her. 

I shuffled a few papers on my desk, look back at her and say, “Fine, Mistress it is. Now why are you here…Mistress?” 

She licks her lips and leans back again, extends her beautiful legs and folds her hands on her lap. She is perfection and she knows it. That irritates me somehow and yet I can’t help but hang on her every word. The anticipation of her reply is coursing through my veins. 

“I already told you,” she says in her low, melodic voice, “I am here because you have been wicked. I am here to punish you.” 

I’m not that into BDSM. I like to tie people up and I am the consummate Dominant man if it comes right down to it…but the way she says it, in the mysterious accent, sends a thrill down my spine. I lean farther across the desk, look her in the eyes and say, “How are you planning on punishing me?”

This is not a Romance. No Love Story. No HEA.
ae7281d8318367db5f0b532e8ad91a3f[1]
5 Roses – Dark – Gritty – Mind-Thriller – Twisted Unique Writing
Dr. Alexandre Dane is a very twisted albeit absolutely gorgeous alpha male psychologist.  He is a highly sought after in his unconventional treatments for women whom been through some hellish pasts.  There is a method to his madness – treating these women the exact same was they have been treated seems to play into Alexandre’s sick, twisted and manipulative sexual kicks.   Alexandre is a sexual deviant who thrives on his patients most vulnerable and painful humiliating atrocious acts in the past.  He is a true sociopath and I believe he is about to meet his match.
“I like them to go through all the emotions I am incapable of.  My fetish is humanity, and I want to drain my balls into the sticky, hot mess of feelings that I bring up in the bitches stupid enough to open their bodies to me.”  ~Dr. Alexandre Dane
ea59a555f6830009380717c59e1776c3[1]
5 – Hearts – No Hero Here
Sometimes I do feel for this devil in disguise, at times his flashbacks show sharps memories from his childhood that are a bit disturbing at times and make me cringe and sorta want to reach out to him.  His father was a distant, alcoholic womanizer who used Alexandre as a cover.  His mother was also distant emotionally and mentally although somehow I get the impression she was not so distant physically.  I believe she was a creeper who damaged her son’s psyche from the early stages of puberty on up until his adulthood.
“Slapping pinching red fingernails forcing me to sit for hours until it hurts.  I can feel her long fingers wrapping around me, touching me and whispering, ‘Nobody will ever love you like mommy does.’  ~Alexandre
Still Dr. Dane does have someone, his Go-To if you will, someone that is always there for him to talk to, someone that truly listens to him.  Jane seems to be his exact opposite, she is attractive but so very plain, yet she is always there for him when he needs her.  At times Alexandre thinks this would be his ultimate trophy wife to stave off the vicious rumors that are circulating in his office and among his prestigious colleagues.
“Have I been blind this entire time?  Fumbling through the darkness unable to really connect to another human being when it might have been simple human touch I was seeking all this time?” ~Alexandre
“I know how you are and I know how we would be together.  I would always be chasing you.  Living in your shadow and wondering who you’re with when you’re not with me.” ~Jane
eb8e05f7ec50b5eb8f285ca6793d569d[1]
5 – Dastardly Dubious Consensual and Non-Consensual SEX!
And so we meet a woman who will be Dr. Dane’s downfall!  She is the exact replica of him only in a woman form.  She has long legs encased in black stockings, a very short, tight fitting cherry red cocktail dress, elbow length white evening gloves and wearing elegant black strappy heels.  Her cherry red lips are smoking a cigarette and Alexandre is entranced and in lust with her immediately.  She will show him exactly what he has been doing to others tenfold, he will call her MISTRESS.
“I want to taste her mouth, I want to slide my tongue in between those lips and suck the nicotine from her moist insides.  I’m not a smoker, but my body craves her taste.”  ~Alexandre
“Your intention all along was to please yourself.  I am simply showing you what happens to very wicked boys.”  ~Mistress
12ccd369b14ef1045c8810eb398556a0[1]

I wonder will you all shed a tear for Dr. Dane?  Does a teardrop fall for those women in his therapy experiments?  Do you have a tear left for poor old plain Jane?  I wonder if you will feel as I did when I finished this brilliant psycho traumatic mind binder.  I’m sure my mind has been bent, busted, and completely blown!

Thank you Jaden Wilkes, you wicked, wicked wacky woman!  I loved every drop you wrote!

5 – Roses – Unique Writing – Stories – Journeys

Oh my gosh I don’t think my review will give this E-mag any justice.. I marked it as read but I don’t think I could ever be done reading. It was so much more than a BDSM magazine.

The graphics and links were truly a delight to my eyes. My most favorite and highlighted features would have to be the amazing reviews on delicious foods and fantastic beverages!

The Interpretation of BDSM this Author wrote on BDSM was an eye opener for me and I highly recommend it to any and all persons eager to learn from a true master.

There are many adventures and stories the Author take you on, howerer, I love the Honeymoon: Part 1, 2, & 3 and cannot wait for continuation!

I absolutely love the cover art for the E-Mag, it totally reminds me of the ’50s pin-up hotties way back then and this Author’s words and art will bring it all back!

Well done Jack Furie Lapin, can’t wait for The Spice of Life!

Coming Soon!

4ea6b-synopsismabw3

The Spice of Life (or #TSOL, to fans) follows Jake Furie Lapin, a 37-year-old sexaholic and loving Dom. As the first book in a three-part series, TSOL explores Jake’s transformation from a submissive, out-of-shape man, stuck in a sexless marriage, to a strong, successful, fit, loving Dom. This first book follows Jake as he describes his many sexual adventures, in great detail, to Kelli, his sex therapist.

Kelli Lemberg is a successful sex therapist who has an office-based practice in Manhattan. Like Jake, Kelli finds herself trapped in a marriage that is lacking heat and passion. Through her sex therapy sessions with Jake, Kelli begins to undergo an amazing transformation of her own, as she uncovers and explores the depths of her own inner sexuality and sensual fire.

5 – Roses – Strong Young Love
Shula Kelley is the strong heroine in this captivating series based around the year 2250 in Texas which has segregated from the United States.  Texas in this era has converted back to the old ways in which women were born and raised to be barefoot and in the kitchen.  They are controlled and heavily monitored, they are taught from birth to submit fully to their husbands without any learning, reading, writing or complaints of any kind.  Arranged Marriages is the way, the only way in this dark era only Shula decides to stand up and fight for her right to live, learn and Love. 
1811695wio5oh31xf
~Shula~  Jared seemed nice enough. He was painfully shy, quiet, and probably handsome.  He had disappeared after he took the death of Anna quite hard, so his father had deigned to fulfill it himself.
1811695wio5oh31xf
Jared is the luscious Hero that patiently waits for his intended bride from a pre-arranged marriage.  Jared is a smart and independent, a computer guru that contrives to make a name and a future for his intended without the aide of his father who is king of this generation.  His sole purpose is to see that his bride lives in comfort and is well satisfied while he seeks justice and the demise of his controlling father.
1811695wio5oh31xf
~Jared~  As much as he’d wanted Shula, as much as he’d always known that she was intended for him, he knew his father would take her from him.  She would have to be patient and he would have to be strong.

5 – Hearts – Couples – Soul Mates
This couple have a rocky start, yet they overcome their preconceived notions they are taught and start learning, teaching, and growing to love each other.   This Author has a way of bringing dark and humor together, you find yourself both stimulated and laughing at the same time.  The erotic scenes these two fight to share with each other are both enchanting and arousing.
1811695wio5oh31xf
~ Jared ~  ‘Hopefully he could make her repeat the sound she made right before he painfully pulled away.’
~Shula~  ‘The was so much importance placed on my purity, it made me angry, so I took care of it myself.   I used my fingers, then I moved to cucumbers and squash.’
1811695wio5oh31xf
There is so much more to this story and I wait anxiously for the next installment.  I need to see James the King, the father of lies, the shame of the devil himself get his penance.  I will be there waiting to read about the women who finally burn their bras and the family who rise against their tyrant of a father and come together finally as a whole. 
1811695wio5oh31xf
Thank You Arden Aoide, I cannot wait for the next installment to this new dark stimulating thriller with a touch of only your humor one relates to.

Synopsis:

When sexy Dom Sebastian sees Ashley, he can’t seem to take his eyes off her. She will become his love. His pet. His slave. He’s cared for her since high school but he was different then. He was scrawny and geeky and unpopular. The only times Ashley knew he existed were the times when she was making fun of him. Ashley had been in control her entire life but things were about to change. Sebastian has been reunited with Ashley and is now intent on training her to become the obedient, submissive woman who will please his every need, his every whim.

Careful to conceal his identity, Sebastian hides behind a mask, hoping she doesn’t recognize him. Only there is something strangely familiar about his piercing baby blues. He doesn’t reveal his name to her, instructing Ashley to address him only as Sir. He often refers to her as Wildcat, the screen name she used to meet men online. Sebastian spends months training Ashley to submit, but his feelings for her often get in the way. He tries to remain tough because he has vowed to never love again, never let another woman hurt him, but there’s something different about Ashley. She makes him want to be a better man. There has always been a soft spot in his heart for Ashley. Can Sebastian learn how to truly love someone and can Ashley love a man she’s never really known?

Author Interview

Name: Raine Storm

Age 33

Where are you from Lyndhurst, Ohio (near Cleveland)

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc I’ve always loved reading and

writing and feel that books give us all a chance to get away from reality for a bit. I also

really enjoy sports. I have spent some time coaching baseball and I love to watch my

beloved Cleveland teams on TV even if they usually let me down.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news? My first erotic novel Wildcat will be coming out

later this month. I had always enjoyed writing psych thrillers but it’s been a lot of fun

expanding into the erotica genre.

Fiona: When and why did you begin writing? I began writing when I was just a young

child. It’s always something I’ve been good at and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my

writing but I also write because I absolutely love books. Especially real books. I collect

Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer? I think I’ve always considered

myself a writer. There was a four year span where I quit writing because I received so

many rejection letters but once I heard about self-publishing I went back to be the person

I always have been, a writer.

Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book? All the compliments on writing

inspired me to write my first and I’ve been writing them for as long as I can remember.

Last April I released my first novel. A psychological thriller called Hazed and Chained

and holding that first book of mine in my hand is one my life’s greatest moments to this

point.

Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? My style is that I’m a dark writer. I often

pride myself on shock factor and I’m not afraid to tell things like they are.

Fiona: How did you come up with the title? I got the name Wildcat from a scene in the

movie speed when she was driving the bus and the bomber called her Wildcat.

Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? There are two

messages. One is that no matter how tough and closed off a man is the right woman can

change is thought process entirely and the other is that in order for any relationship to

work things need to be good in the bedroom. Communication is key to that. Don’t be

afraid to tell your partner what you want.

Fiona: How much of the book is realistic? It’s mostly fictional but there are a few

things I’ve taken from real life. I usually add some life experiences into my books. I’ve

definitely taken some things friends have said or done and put them into the book.

Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Some of

the sex scenes are from things I’ve tried with partners in real life yes.

Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? My favorite books are the

Catcher in the Rye, The Time Traveler’s Wife and Gone Girl. Catcher in the Rye is good

because the character is so brutally honest. Gone girl has a lot of shock factor which I like

because it’s a similar style of writing to mine and I feel it’s helped me improve my style

and Time Traveler’s Wife is a very well written love story. Not usually my thing but that

one got to me a bit.

Fiona: If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I would

have to say Gillian Flynn just because of her style of writing, so brutally honest, dark,

suspenseful and shocking.

Fiona: What book are you reading now? Currently reading Captive in the Dark by C.J.

Roberts.

Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? C.J. Roberts would be

that person. Not sure how new this author is but the author is new to me.

Fiona: What are your current projects? My current project is the Wildcat trilogy. Book

one will be out later this month and I also am looking into a re-release of Hazed and

Chained.

Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members. My

friends are the ones who also kept me going, who always believed in my writing ability.

Fiona: Do you see writing as a career? Absolutely. Writing is definitely a career to me

and not a hobby.

Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

I would change some things in Hazed and Chained. I would put more detail in the sex

scenes and make the book a little longer.

Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? Just from all the

compliments on my writing and loving to read from such a young age. My parents said I

was reading entire books at two years old so I think it was inevitable that books would be

a big part of my future.

Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us? My current book Wildcat

shows us Dom Sebastian attempting to train Ashley, a former dominatrix into

submission. He is tough, cocky and a little arrogant but develops a soft spot in his heart

for his sexy sub.

Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? Honestly

writing has never been all that challenging to me. It’s always been fun. The most

challenging thing is meeting deadlines and goals.

Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

Gillian Flynn is my favorite but I also like James Patterson. Gillian writes dark books

with shock factor and James Patterson adds some good mystery into his books.

Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? I have yet to travel much

due to my writing but I’ve currently been setting up some public appearances so it looks

like I’ll be on the road quite a bit soon.

Fiona: Who designed the covers? I don’t currently have a cover designer though I’ve

spoken with a few in recent weeks.

Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book? The hardest part of writing Hazed

and Chained was writing Ray’s character. I could never be as sick and twisted as he was.

The hardest part of writing Wildcat is honestly that it’s tough to write erotica without

stopping because you are horny.

Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? What I learned

from writing any of my books is that there are still a lot more readers out there than I

thought, mostly female. This is definitely a good thing considering the spelling I’ve seen

in some text messages by the younger generation of late.

Fiona: Do you have any advice for other writers? Read a lot and write a lot. Observe your

surroundings. Pay attention to facial features of people without staring at them. Pick up

on conversations around you. These are things you could use in your books.

Fiona: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Make sure to

leave reviews. That’s how we really make our living so we can support our own families.

Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read? The first book I read was called,

“Whole stole the Wizard of Oz.” It was about kids who searched for a library book that

had gone missing.

Fiona: Other than writing do you have any hobbies ? My hobbies are sports. I love being

athletic. I play tennis and coach baseball when I can. I try to stay active.

Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching? I love the Blacklist and Law and

Order: SVU as well as King of Queens. My favorite movies are Back to the Future,

Speed and Cruel Intentions.

Fiona: Favorite foods / Colors/ Music I like Steak, Meatloaf and Tacos. Favorite color is

Orange. Kid Rock is my favorite singer/songwriter

Fiona: If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done? Baseball player

for sure.

Fiona: Do you have a blog/website? If so what is it? Yes. I’m on Tumbler. http://

Reviewers Say

“A richly nuanced — and smolderingly clever — book about letting love shine in places where the past feels bigger than it needs to be. The cast of side characters range from quirky to mysterious, lending tremendous authenticity and depth to a romantic story that is so much more. A one-click must read!” Julia Kent, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.

“A heartbreaking tale of letting go and learning to love again. A jaw-dropping debut novel you have to read.” – Helena Newbury, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.

Synopsis

How do you start over when you gave everything to one life, one plan, and lost it all?

Althea refuses to allow herself to love again. Imprisoned in grief at twenty-four after her husband’s sudden death, she’s convinced her heart died along with him. She spends her days honoring his memory by clinging to the legal career he helped her to build and to the remaining pieces linking them together.

Griffen’s been running from his past. Despite success as an author and investigative journalist, he’s been traveling through life on autopilot. For a decade, he’s chosen perilous adventures and meaningless sex over the danger of any attachments. When he finally returns home to Pittsburgh, he’s slammed by the awakened memories and regret he’s spent years trying to escape.

A chance encounter brings them together. Their instant desire for each other – and the bond they discover between them – shocks them both. Despite her best efforts, Althea can’t resist Griffen’s charm or his intriguing proposition – if she agrees to a no-strings affair with him for the two weeks he’s in town, he swears he’ll walk away when their time is up. Assured she can test the waters of a new life while keeping her vow never to betray her husband’s memory by opening her heart to another, Althea throws herself into the escape Griffen provides her.

Their perfect plans go awry when the intensity of their connection overwhelms them. Will they risk it all on the chance of something great together…or will the power of their secrets and guilt tear them apart?

Excerpt #1

Griffen stroked her cheek and Althea thought how truly sorry she was to have woken him, especially because what she didn’t tell him was that tonight it wasn’t her deceased husband Jack’s face in her nightmare that turned to dust and disappeared. It was Griffen’s.

“Althea…” Griffen whispered.

“Shh. No,” she said softly as she reached up and caressed his face gently in return. “Will you just…will you please make love to me, Griffen?”

“Anytime, gorgeous.”

But it won’t be anytime anymore, Althea thought. He will turn to dust and I will be all alone. Again.

And she knew it had to be that way, because this emptiness in her heart was the penance she would always have to pay for failing Jack.

Griffen led her to the bed and they made love. It was the most tender and gentle experience of their time together. Griffen touched her everywhere, stroked her hair, kissed her face and soothed away each tear. He ran his lips down her chest and she gasped as he sucked her nipple into his mouth reverently. He somehow managed to put on a condom despite touching every part of her constantly and slid gently inside of her. She was grateful because she didn’t want any lead-in this time. She just needed him inside her, while her hands were full of his hair and his warm, giving flesh. She moaned and lifted his head from her breast to look at him.

“Baby,” he said, kissing her eyelids and finally claiming her mouth. She wrapped her legs around his, even curling her feet around his calves, desperately trying to make every inch of her body touch his.

She was so preoccupied with how full and complete she felt that her climax surprised her. This had not been about an orgasm, it was about closeness and human contact. Running off the demons of loss and fear, if only for a moment.

But Griffen didn’t know how to leave her unsatisfied. He couldn’t touch her without making her body go off like a sparkler in the backyard on the fourth of July, and even now, with his gentle lovemaking, it was no different. He groaned in her ear and came right along with her, spurring more spasms and electric shocks through her body.

“Oh Griffen, yes, Griffen,” she responded.

He leaned up and looked into her eyes, brushing her hair back from her face. His face looked so tormented.

“Oh Althea,” he said sadly over and over again, almost like a prayer, until he rolled over and held her until she finally fell into a blessedly dreamless sleep.

 

Excerpt #2

Althea leaned back and forced a smile and laugh as she looked around. Her brazen pretense was tossing kerosene on Griffen’s fiery emotions.

With each nervous dart of her eyes, Griffen’s heart pounded with more anger. He leaned closer and whispered hotly in her ear, “Is that better? Am I making you uncomfortable? God forbid someone thinks you aren’t a perfect widow pining away alone after all these years. That you’re still living an adult life,” he growled. “Maybe I should ignore your rules and touch you anyway. I know you like it when I do.”

“Stop it, please.” She breathed slowly, calming herself. “We can touch. Just not here.”

“Fine. I get it.” Griffen couldn’t stop how angry he felt.

The irony wasn’t lost on him. Most women he’d been with begged him to be serious with them and tell the world they were together. That had never appealed to him, until now. Yet here was this beautiful, desirable woman that he wanted to express affection to and she couldn’t bear to let anyone know they were together. He hadn’t even realized how furious it made him until he found his heart was racing and he was feeling hot with anger.

Althea must’ve sensed it because she leaned over and whispered, “No. You don’t get it, and you shouldn’t have to. This is my thing. My issue.” She looked around to see if anyone was staring at them and looked into his eyes. “I do want to touch you. I want you to touch me.” She swallowed and lowered her voice even more. “Very much.”

“Fine,” he gritted out. When he looked down at her, with her eyes turned up so full of concern while her lips parted and she panted just a little from the desire that coursed through them every time they were near each other, his heart pounded for a different reason. “I need to touch you, too…everywhere.”

“Yes, please,” she whispered.

 J.M. Witt
I’m a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We’ve been married for nine years and reside in Highland, Michigan.

 

I’ve dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.

 

When I’m not volunteering at the schools of my children, running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my book club, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I’m writing!

I love music and believe that books and music can’t exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!
