I'm originally from a small town in Nova Scotia but grew up in Toronto where I still live. In addition to reading (all types of books) and writing, my loves include photography and travel (over 20 countries and counting). And I'd love to hear from my fans!
Libertine Island 3: The Runaway Sub
Jen Smith's been alone since her Master died five years earlier. Now, she's quit her job and come to Libertine Island to witness a marriage. She meets Dr. Caleb McKenna, who took a job on the island to get away from the big bad city after getting shot near the clinic where he volunteered, and the breakup of his long-term relationship. They are two lonely people who decide to have a fling, not expecting to fall for each other.
They are still trying to figure things out when Reynaldo Montoya arrives to bring Caleb home after tracking down the man responsible for the shooting.
Even though they were apart, he's not to happy to find Caleb in Jen's arms and decides to extract revenge, but when he sees how much they need each other, he realizes that maybe he's the one who should step aside unless the three of them can figure out how to make it work.
Jen leaned into Caleb, his strong arms holding her close. She could feel the beat of his heart under her cheek and the hardness of his cock against her belly. His big hands gripped her ass, holding her tight, almost grinding her against him until they were both slightly breathless with need.
“All of the private rooms were booked,” he whispered into her ear.”And I didn’t think you’d want to play publicly the first time, but I’ve brought a nice selection of floggers back to my room along with cuffs, a spreader bar, a riding crop, a few nice-sized dildos, and a selection of butt plugs. How long has it been since you had a cock in your ass, sub?”
“Five years, Sir. But I can take you there, Sir, if that’s what you want.”
She heard Caleb sigh.”I’m happy to grant you the pain that you need, but I will not damage you. I won’t be taking your ass tonight, but it’s not too early to start getting it ready for my cock. Someday very soon, you’ll give me your ass and signify your complete surrender of your body to me.”
Jen felt her stomach do flip-flops at his words, and her nipples, which were already hard, seemed to turn to diamonds poking against his chest, and her pussy, which had been moist, now started leaking. She tried to rub her legs together to relieve some of the ache, but he had thrust one of his thighs between hers as they danced, so she tried to grind her clit against it.
“Naughty, naughty,” he admonished softly.”I can feel how wet you are already. You’ve left a wet spot on my pants!”
Jen colored and tried to pull away, but Caleb held her in place.
“Did I tell you I didn’t like it? If you are going to submit to me tonight, we have to talk about the rules. One of the rules for tonight is that you don’t get to come without permission, and I most certainly have not given you permission. And if you misbehave, you might not get it at all.”
“You plead very nicely, sub, but we’re not even naked yet. How are you going to restrain yourself from topping from the bottom? Do I have to gag you?”
Jen moaned with desire.
“So, the thought of being gagged turns you on. What else turns you on? I plan on trussing you up tightly when we get back to my place. You won’t be able to move a muscle, and you’ll be totally dependent upon my mercy. Do you like that thought? I’ll be able to flog you and fuck your pussy and clamp your tits and give you pleasure and pain as I choose. I can grant or deny you release, and you won’t be able to do a damned thing about it but take what I have to give you. Do you like that idea, sub?”
“Yes, Master. Yes please, Master.”
“Ah, my sweet little masochist. I like the sound of that title on your lips. I want to Master you tonight. Do you know how hard you are making me at the thought of doing all those things to you? I’m going to pop like a cork the minute I get inside you. I think I may have to alter my plan. When we leave here, I’ll take you to my cabin and let you in. You’ll freshen up as required and then kneel beside my bed awaiting my return. You’ll find two pairs of cuffs on the night table. I want you to strip naked, including removing these white cuffs that the hotel provided that showed you are a guest not in the lifestyle. You’ll replace them with the cuffs I’ve left for you, black with green trim, signifying that you have a Dom at the resort.
“Then I’ll make a quick trip to the toy store and pick up a gag and maybe a blindfold as well. When I return, you’ll be kneeling, eyes downcast, in the correct presentation position. When I stand in front of you, you will bow your head to the ground and acknowledge me as your Master. Then you will unfasten my pants and suck my cock. Do you understand?”
Jen thought she’d go up in flames right out on the dance floor.
“Yes, Sir.” The thought of him dominating her so thoroughly had awakened desires that she’d thought where gone forever. She’d been a slave to Hank in the bedroom, and she yearned to hand over total control again. She was only going to be at the hotel for two more nights, and she intended to spend both of them submitting to Caleb if he wanted her.
BEHIND THE SCENES
What inspired you to write your first book?
I'm like a lot of writers. I love to read. I read a lot, all genres. One day when I was on the Siren Publishing site looking for some new books to download I saw the "submit" button and clicked on it. The rest is history.
Is there a message in your novel that you hope readers walk away with?
I always try to make my heroines strong women. They may have issues to deal with and the heroes may come to the rescue at times, but in the, the hero makes their lives richer (emotionally), but they are not "half a person" without him/them (yes, my heroines often end up with multiple men!)
What are your current projects?
I just finished book 4 in the Libertine Island Series. I'm now working on Books 3 & 4 for the Call of the Wolf series and am considering doing a Prequel to tell the story of how the Harmony Pack was formed
Name one person you feel supported you outside of family members.
I have to name a group, my fellow Siren writers are an amazing bunch who support each other and made me feel very welcome when I released my first book.
What are your ambitions for your writing career?
I'd love to get to the point where I can write full time, but I just had my first book published last February, so I have a way to go.
Why do you write?
I have stories to tell. Simple as that. :) And I'm lucky enough that people seem to want to read them.
Location, Location, Location.
The setting of a book can be vital to the story line. It sets the stage for the action and can inform the reader about the main characters before they’ve even started the story. Does the lead live in a small town or a big city? Do they own a house, live in an apartment, maybe a condo?
Then there’s the part of the world they live in. Are the in the US, Canada or maybe Europe? If they are in the US, do they live in the north, south, Midwest?
The answers to these questions can tell reader a lot about the character before they even open their mouths.
My newest location is Libertine Island where the Water is Blue, the Sand is White, the Sun is Hot and the Sex is Hotter!
When I decided to create the spin off series from Club Libertine, I wanted to keep the themes but make some key changes. Firstly, the books are longer. The stories are more involved and the sex hotter. Secondly, I wanted to have a contained environment. My characters needed to be thrown together in an intense environment for a pivotal part of the story. Being isolated from the rest of the world in a tropical paradise gives people a chance to explore their sensual sides without having the real world intrude.
I thought about using real venues. The Club Libertine books are set in Seattle Washington, a hip city in the Northwest. The Libertine Island books are set on a fictional island off the coast of a real one.
I decided to place Libertine Island off the coast of St. Maarten in part because I visited that tropical paradise and loved every minute of it. It’s beautiful and the people are great and it gave me a lot of real detail to work with. I even considered setting the stories there but then I decided that I needed to create my own island paradise where the denizens of Club Libertine and now Libertine Island can express themselves freely and in public without worrying about strangers seeing something they shouldn’t.
Besides, I like the idea of designing my own personal island paradise. If only I could do that in real life.
So far, there are four Libertine Island Books:
Book 1, Sex on the Beach - Rebecca’s working on her thesis and takes a job on Libertine to have a little sexual adventure before settling into academia. She didn’t count on meeting Mal and Mike Reynolds. She also didn’t expect her nemesis to show up and threaten all their jobs. On Sale Now
Book 2, Sun, Sand and Submission – Aly’s worried when she finds out that her friend is working at a BDSM resort and living with not one but two Doms. She can only get to the island in the company of a Dom, so she calls her Ex Max, the man she’s never stopped loving, to help her out. On Sale Now
Book 3, The Runaway Sub – Jen comes to Libertine Island to attend Aly and Max’s wedding. She didn’t count on meeting Caleb, the island Doctor. Neither was looking for love or even a fling, but they are drawn together. Enter Rey, who’s come looking for his Runaway Sub. On PreSale now. On sale now.
