A chance encounter on a moonlit beach draws sensible, cautious Kay Denehy into a night of anonymous passion and surrender with a ruthlessly dominant stranger. As John Randall introduces her to the exotic thrills of bondage and discipline, she discovers who she really is under the prim schoolteacher exterior—a sexual submissive who needs the strict and ardent guidance of a take-no-prisoners Dom like him. John carries more than his share of emotional baggage, the result of a tragedy for which he feels responsible. Though he cares for Kay, he refuses to pursue a relationship, certain he could only bring her pain. He pushes her away even as his unconscious dream self turns her into a sex slave to be punished and enjoyed ménage-style by two other zealous and demanding Doms. For the first time in her life, Kay knows what she needs, and who she needs, to be sexually and emotionally fulfilled. She knows, too, the path John must take to escape his dark places—if only he’ll trust her to lead the way.
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely! It’s the hardest work I’ve ever done, but also the most rewarding. I’ll stop writing when they pry my keyboard from my cold, dead fingers.
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Facing the blank page—or rather, the blank computer screen—is definitely the toughest part. Self-editing afterward is so much easier. There’s a saying we writers have: I hate writing, but I love having written.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I have a pal from my writers’ group who shares a mini writing retreat with me every Saturday. She offers fantastic feedback and is always there for mutual support. For that matter, I’m blessed to have a lot of wonderful writer friends.
#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m working on a new story idea that ties in to my favorite erotic theme: BDSM. Some readers have asked me to write Erik’s story. He’s the big, gorgeous ex-Navy Seal who is now a sex-slave trainer, and we meet him in the last part of Binding Agreement. I honestly can’t blame my readers for falling in love with him.
#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are youcurrently reading?
Of course I’m addicted to reading! I just finished a wonderful novella by a new talent in erotica: The Mark by Arla Dahl. The setting is New England during the witch hysteria of the 17th century. What fun!

This or That?
#1 - iPd or Mp3?
Both! Anything that gets my music and audiobooks into my head is good.
#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla is highly underrated, although chocolate has undeniable appeal. It all depends on which body part it’s applied to.
#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?
#4 – Comedy or Drama?
I always insert a bit of wit into my writing, which in no way detracts from its erotic appeal, so I’d have to say comedy.
#5 – iPhone or Droid?
How could I possibly choose? Each has its advantages. See how neatly I got out of that one? J
#6 – Fantasy or Reality?
What do you think? I write lies for a living!
#7 – Call or Text?
At this point I do more texting than calling, but there are times when there’s no substitute for hearing someone’s sexy voice in your ear.
#8 – Summer or Winter?
Summer! Fewer clothes.
#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate?
I have a T-shirt that says “Instant human: just add coffee.” Does that answer your question?
#10 – eBook or Paperback?
I read both, but I love how many books my tiny ereader holds, and how easy it is to adjust font, brightness, and all that.
