Can the sub teach the Dom to play?
Natural submissive Gracie Miller thought she had found her other half in Cade Jameson. Not only did he help her through a difficult time in her life, in the bedroom he brought her more pleasure than she could have ever imagined. They seemed perfect for each other.
Cade knew what he wanted in the bedroom. Gracie brought out his domineering side and ignited his passion. But he feared he was too dominant for this beautiful, naïve girl, who was so young and impressionable, so he ended their relationship.
Two and a half years later, Gracie returns to town a new woman. She had moved to the city and found a "Master" who showed her what she was truly capable of. Now she's back and wants to show Cade exactly what kind of submissive she could be for him.
But after hearing all that she's experienced, Cade now wonders if he's dominant enough to satisfy her. Can he be the man Gracie needs him to be?

Ten minutes later they were seated at a quaint restaurant in the center of town. Cade had requested a quiet table in the back so they wouldn't be interrupted. He was confused enough and didn't need any distractions. Being a well-known businessman, he was always running into people who wanted to have a drink with him. Gracie's return would probably be the talk of the town in a matter of days.
Once they ordered dinner and the waitress poured their wine he'd had enough small talk. He wanted answers.
"Why did you come back?"
"I told you." Gracie sipped her wine. "I took a job here."
"Do you think I'm stupid?"
"Of course not." She lowered her head.
"Don't do that."
"Just look at me." He was puzzled over her return and her elusiveness frustrated him. She quickly raised her gaze, meeting his eyes.
"You walked away from this town without a trace. I don't believe you would come back after all this time to consult. Something isn't right."
"You told me to leave."
"Me!" He tapped his chest. "I told you to leave me. I never expected you to disappear. I thought I'd know where you were and what you were doing." Even though he told her to go, he'd always intended to take care of her.
"Without you, there wasn't anything here for me. You were everything. I had no family. I lived in your house. Where did you expect me to go?"
"We could have figured it out together. I would have made sure you were taken care of." She'd always been his responsibility and when she left he panicked she'd end up on the street.
"I needed to go. I had to figure out who I was. That's what you wanted."
"I wanted you to be happy."
"I am." She smiled. "I told you, I met someone who helped me."
"Then why aren't you with him?" He didn't like to think about her with another man. It infuriated him to know someone else touched what was his, even if he did let her go. "Are you running from him? Is that why you're back here? Do you need my help?"
She laughed. "I could never run from Martin."
He hated knowing his name. "So, Martin was your boyfriend?"
"Not really." She took another sip of her wine.
Her mysterious behavior pissed him off. She'd better start talking and fast.
"Your husband?" He felt his blood boil. Could she have gotten married?
"Cade," she said as she reached for his hand. "I don't want you to freak, but Martin was my Dom. I was his submissive."
Not really. I enjoy so many authors but I’m not overly excitable.
If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Nora Roberts. She creates such memorable characters and spins a love story like no other. I developed my passion for writing romance novels from her. I also learned how to build a solid series from reading her books.
The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Hmm… that’s a hard one. Can’t I take my Kindle? That’s lighter than one book and it will take up less room. Lol
Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
I’ll go with mine since I created them, and I know what makes them who they are. In my latest novella Make Me Stay, my main couple, Cade and Gracie, left a lasting impression on me long after I put the pen down. The emotional connection between these two is not only solid but stands the test of time. They both sacrifice for the other and in the end, it all work out for them.
If you friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Indecisive… I couldn’t even decide which book to take when the world was under attack in question #3. Lol
Where do you do your best work?
Usually at night when everyone else is asleep. I crawl into the guest bed and write for a couple of hours. The house is quiet and I can think.
Do you find it harder to write a full-length novel or novellas?
Novellas are tougher for me because I’m so wordy. I like to create back stories and develop the characters. I have a few novellas but they are part of a series, so it gives me time to go where I need to with all of the characters.
When did you fall in love...with writing?
I’ve always been a writer. As a child, I would create characters and places and write down as much as I could. As an adult, the stories got more intricate. I never thought I’d be able to do anything with them, but that all changed when I discovered the eBooks industry.
Are you a plotter or fly by the seat of your pants writer?
I start out as a plotter, but sometimes I have to let the characters take me in the direction that’s best for the story. I listen to what they have to say and I go with it.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
Spending time with my husband and two boys.
Favorite food Mexican
Boots or heels boots
eReader or Print eReader
Social Media: Love it or Hate it? Love it when used properly. I’m not into kids using it to bully other kids.
