Handcuffed By Her Hero (The W.I.L.D. (Warriors Intense in Love & Domination) Boys of Special Forces - Book 2)
Between a rock and a hard place.
To Sergeant Zeke Hayes, the expression has always been a non-factor. There's never been a situation he can't blast, punch, or smart-ass his way out of, which makes him the perfect fit for his Special Forces battalion--and a natural-born Dominant who's made a lot of submissives happy from Mt. Rainier to Vancouver.
That all changes when Rayna Chestain enters his world.
From the moment Z snatches Rayna from the lair of a South Asian slave trafficker, his inner grizzly roars to life. This is a huge damn problem, because Z isn't wired to be a one-woman man. Growing up an orphan on the streets of Seattle has taught him that beyond a few hours in a dungeon, trust means disappointment and love leads to agony. But here he is, in the remote wilderness escape he'd promised not to share with anyone, harboring Rayna from a fiend who now wants his pound of revenge flesh from her.
A hard place.
Sheltering Rayna? Z's never done anything more right in his life. But wanting her? Dreaming of her beneath him, surrendering to his passion and domination? It's the most forbidden fruit he can crave...and the only thing he can't stop thinking about.
A new beginning?
This is a dead-end canyon that no rifle, bomb or sweet talk will let Zeke escape from. The only way out is to confront the reality of what Rayna has done to him...the mountain she's moved in his intractable heart.

What inspires you?
GREAT question! And I guess the answer isn’t such an easy one, because I find myself inspired by so many things.
First and foremost, the thing that revs my engines the most writing-wise is witnessing great writing in others. I am constantly blown away by the level of talent we have in our genre. I just finished being astounded by Lexi Blake’s latest installment in the Masters & Mercenaries series, and have moved on to Cherise Sinclair’s newest, “This Is Who I Am.” I love-love-love a lot of the shorter fiction that the Horny Devil group is putting out (pardon the pun you guys!).
I am also a scripted TV junkie. Thanks to Netflix and Amazon on-Demand, I’m able to watch a lot of AMAZING shows being penned by INCREDIBLE writers. Lexi Blake recently got me hooked on the sweet goodness of “Scandal,” and I’ve also started to watch “Homeland” and “Orphan Black”—ALL of which are jaw-droppingly great. I’m a big fan of “24,” as well—and I even joke with my beta readers that they’ll probably see a bit of Jack Bauer in each of my W.I.L.D. Boys.
In other arenas, I’m inspired by the simple things…the stuff that reminds me why life is just such a good thing, meant to be savored and enjoyed every day God gives it to us. This is going to sound so corny, but I love shit like the sun setting over the ocean, or my child’s laugh, or even laying on the floor with my sweet doggie and watching the world from her eyes.
What’s on your bucket list?
Ohhhh man. You ready??
--Going to Australia. And New Zealand. Germany. And Thailand. And Hungary. There’s more on that list, but these are the first ones that come to mind.
--Learning to surf.
--Getting to helicopter ski. (Of course, I have to get better at regular skiing first…)
--Hiking a glacier.
--Learning French fluently.
--On that note: living in Paris for at least a year.
--Writing something HALF as good as Shayla Black and JR Ward!
--Making the USA Today List. And NYT, too.
--Meeting Tony Goldwyn and having him say, “Get out of the car, Olivia!” in person. (Tee hee.)
What is your idea of the perfect romance
Something that makes me bereft to put it down. Characters that live on in my heart long after the story is over. To that end, I’m happy to say that I’ve gotten a chance to read many, many, many perfect romances….and I feel super lucky for having done so!
Well, hello there! My name is Angel, and I’m so happy to meet you. pic
Like many, I’ve had a journey to get here.
I’ve loved reading all my life, and have been writing nearly that long, too. I think it started when I penned an 80-page novel about a time-traveling family for a 5th-grade school project. You could say I was hooked. In middle school, I moved to the hardcore stuff: the paragraph-at-a-time “swap-stories” with all my besties. (C’mon…don’t lie…you remember those too!) Needless to say, the stories featured lots of French kissing, mindless groping and angsty drama – but I knew I’d found a niche when I was invited to participate in several more swap-stories on campus.
Some years, various entertainment writing gigs and a half-dozen historical romances later, I discovered the world of erotica – and home. (Not to mention a great place for all that angst I never gave up.) I love this genre – change that to love this genre – and hope my stories speak to your heart as well as your blood pressure, as well as your courage to explore new things and express your truth in beautiful new ways.
And where do I do all this? Well, if you ask my hubz, he’d likely say “on another planet,” especially if I’m in story-brewing mode! The rest of the time, I live in Southern California with him and our gorgeous child, where I’m abnormally interested in travel, coffee, wine, shoes, super heroes, fetish wear, ridiculous pop culture trends – but most of all, hearing from fellow readers and erotica lovers like you!
Remember: play safe, love completely and never, ever be ashamed to live your truth.
