Erotic Authors Blog Tour - Tied up & Teasing

Welcome to this stop on the Decadent Publishing Erotic Authors Blog Tour.  Enjoy todays post by Mary Quast and be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a download of Handcuffs & Silk and a lovely hand crafted glass necklace.

I was forced by a wicked editor and her voodoo doll to write a story for 1NightStand. Really!!! I'd never written erotic sprinkled with BDSM and this project became a journey for me. Not familiar with BDSM, I interviewed people and researched.  (Oh, the research was delightful!)
Once my mind was able to wrap (like silk scarves) around  the erotic concept, I dove into writing the story. I spent a few days chatting online with a high school classmate who is a detective in Las Vegas in an effort to bring my character to life. 

My sexy muse continued whispering in my ear, stimulating my creative juices.
He liked being tied up.

I did my happy dance when I wrote my favorite line: “You have the right to remain silent.” She clamped a handcuff roughly onto a wrist and raised both arms over his head to hook around the headboard rails then attached the remaining cuff to his free wrist. “Anything you say can and will be used against you for my pleasure.”

Now I have you "tied up"
take a moment and enjoy my little teaser.

BLURB - Stephanie "Stiff" Johnson is a tough Las Vegas cop who many men find too intimidating to date. Steph begins to wonder if something is wrong with her so she turns to Madame Eve to find a man who could be the yin to her yang, even if it's just for one night.

Hunter Mason left behind years of living as a sub to a female Domme in New York. Upon return to his hometown, he questions whether he wants to continue with the "lifestyle" or find something different. Turning to 1 Night Stand, he hopes to sample his options.

A simple one-night stand opens a whole new sensuous world to both.

EXCERPT - Once inside, she slid out of his arms and stepped back to gaze at him. Everything else faded around her until only the magnificent man standing in front of her held her attention. Sex appeal coupled with willingness to satisfy equaled a very appealing combination in a one-night stand. His body radiated a power she wanted to tap. When he embraced her, their bodies fit together in a way promising extreme pleasure. Hunter lifted his arms out from his sides “Do I meet your approval, ma’am?” His dark eyes filled with lust before he focused on the floor.

“Beautiful.” She ached to touch his skin. “I need to see more.”

He began unbuttoning his shirt but she stopped him, stepped closer and took the buttons in her fingers. Working slowly, she admired every inch of skin revealed with her movements before caressing the smooth, tanned skin warm under her palm. His eyes never left the floor as she slid his shirt off broad shoulders. No scars, no tattoos, only perfection spread taut over impressive muscles.

Splaying her fingers wide across his chest, she dipped her head to flick her tongue over a dark nipple. Hunter’s gruff intake of breath and rapid heartbeat were the only sounds she heard. Her nails dragged over his rippled abs and under the band of the underwear peeking out of his pants.

I think this will be a wonderful book to read and I look forward to reading it. I don't read a lot of books dealing with this life style because sometimes it's a little to extreme for me.

I think I would really enjoy the book. I like fantasy.. Where does the author get her ideas? I haven't read this kind in a while.

Becca Simone said...

I think it's good for authors to step outside our comfort zones periodically. It can lead to fantastic stories.

I've been wanting to read this book for a while now just because of the sexy cover. After reading the blurb and excerpt, I really, really want to read it! ;) Beautiful necklace!

I really enjoyed your story! The way you had your leading lady interacting with her officer buddies was awesome. I also adored the 'twist' ending, which I won't reveal but is a favorite fantasy of mine. ;)
