Submission therapy by Katie Salidas – a hot cure!

Believing love is pure folly, Natasha rejects the offer of her Master’s collar. When she turns to old addictions to ease her pain, she risks losing all He has taught her, and even more besides.

A new series by authors Katie Salidas and Willsin Rowe, it will immerse you in an exciting world:Therapy Series

The excitement is everywhere, from Las Vegas to Brisbane! In fact, it’s probably right in the middle of those two places that the excitement is greatest! So, depending on which direction you go, that’s either in southern Central African Republic, or about 1,000 miles south of Hawaii.

That’s right, the third “Consummate Therapy” book releases in almost no time, bringing the series to a climactic…uh, climax!

If you haven’t caught up with the trials and tribbing…sorry, tribulations…of Natasha Blakely, billionaire CEO, then now is the perfect time to get your fingers wet. Sorry, I meant “feet”. Get your feet wet.

Submission Therapy

When we first meet Natasha, she’s a hard-nosed control freak with unhealthy addictions to coffee, cigarettes, and pretty young men with prices on their…well, let’s say “heads”. When her therapist, Dr. Benson, recommends “Submission Therapy”, she is introduced to the notion of letting go, of releasing control. Master Sweet shows her the mental, physical and emotional benefits of simply submitting to the will of another.

Her journey continues through “Occupational Therapy”, where she learns a most intimate form of personal control. Her determination is strong but brittle, and though she’s had great success in her business life, she finds these personal challenges far more difficult. Simply because they require her to open up all the emotions and memories that she has suppressed or denied in order to compete in a man’s world. When this chapter ends, Natasha is faced with the most pivotal emotional choice she’s ever had to make.

Which brings us to “Immersion Therapy”. This story releases on Friday, November 30th in the US, and it brings out the best and worst of Natasha’s behavior. Her pride wars with her need. With the overload of sensation that Master Sweet has introduced her to, she flails against everything she once knew to be true. Yet she struggles to believe that a man who feels this good can have any kind of permanence in her life.

SHORT EXCERPT from IMMERSION THERAPY:

 

It didn’t escape me that He held His arms stiffly by His sides. The heat of His skin was a marked counterpoint to the coldness of His voice. “We’re done here, Natasha. You were instructed to return on time, you did not. You made your choice.”

“No, Master. I made a mistake.”

“I am not your Master. I am not your doctor. I am, as of 8:01pm, nothing to you.”

For the first time I could remember, there was a vein of anger in His voice.

I grasped at His hand and tried to put it up on the back of my neck, the way I’d seen Chloe do it. He pulled out of my grip insistently, but without any apparent menace. He simply stood there, stoic and resolute, probably waiting for me to run away in tears. And though I was very tempted to do just that, I knew it was the one move that was guaranteed to lose Him forever.

“You are my Master. You will always be, even if I never see You again. You know me better than anyone, so I know you understand what scared me.”

“Of course. But there are strict rules by which I operate. I gave you a choice and a time to make it by. That’s how business works. You of all people know that, Ms. Blakely.”

That was worse than spitting in my face, calling me that. And implying that everything we’d done had simply been His job. It felt like He was completely detached from me.

WILLSIN ROWE

Willsin Rowe falls in love with a scent, a playful expression or an act of casual intimacy more easily than with physical beauty. When confronted by any combination of those elements he is a lost cause. He has done many things over and over, done even more things only once, and half-done more things than he cares to admit. He loves to sing and doesn’t let his voice get in the way. He is intelligent but not sensible. He is passionate but fearful. He is not scruffy enough or stylish enough to be cool.

 

Two freebies for this weekend

As you may have noticed, I have taken a step back from the publishing world this past year – too much in my life right now to keep up. But last may I published two novellas I love, which I am offering free today, in case you haven’t read them. Just click on the covers for the link to amazon. :) Happy reading!

 

When Daniel joins the monastery on the island of Andros to escape his violent family, he thinks he has found peace. Two years later, vivid sexual dreams with a gorgeous male demon test his loyalty to the strictness of monastic life and make him wonder if he’s made a huge mistake in striving for purity…

Taken as a child from the streets by Gaetano, a Siledian Mafia boss, Idun is now his slave and bodyguard. After a shooting gone wrong, the boss sends Idun to an exclusive resort to recover from his injuries. But Idun knows that when the boss shows kindness, he should be very afraid…
Celestin works against human trafficking, after escaping the bonds of slavery early in his life. When he’s assigned the rescue of Idun, he never imagines he will fall for his charge…
This is a game of cat and mouse, where nobody’s who they seem. Will Idun and Celestin find trust in each other, and will they fight back to back, when the battle begins?

How stories are born (or, how elves rule my life)

This won’t be a long post – just an update on how a certain elf has taken over my life right now and insists to have his story told no matter what. “But I have other projects started!” I protest and grumble, “I need to finish a novel, work on some other ideas! Where did you sprout from?”

“Hi,” he says, “my name is Tush and I’m a Silver Elf. I need your help, because circumstances have forced me to become a slave.”

Drat. How can I not fall for this ploy to break my heart? He looks at me with those pretty eyes all sad and I just can’t turn my back to him.

Typical story.

So I found a strappy young human male for him, to help him out. The things I do for a pretty boy… /eyeroll/ :D

 

Here is a pic of what he looks like more or less (his eyes are actually gray and his hair is also more iron-silver gray) – have a look and tell me if you wouldn’t drop everything to help him out!

 

 

 

I wish you all a very nice day!

Returning with a new novella – Napolean Guns and Burning Kisses!

Jay is back.

Where has Jay been all this time, you may ask. Jay is silent, only shrugging a little when asked. Thing is, work takes up a lot more time than one wants to admit.

Anyhow… Here I am again. :) And with a bonus: a new novella!

“Napolean Guns and Burning Kisses” is a novella I wrote two years ago but never got around to revising and polishing. Swamped with work and finishing other projects, I almost forgot about it. With all the buzz about self publishing, I dug it out again and thought – heck, why not try my hand at this?

The amazing thing is that, instead of going under with the stress of doing this (because, being me, I wanted to do it all myself – the editing, the cover art, the formatting), I felt energized. It seems that I’m a control freak after all… lol!

So I sat down and dusted off my boys. Idun, my broken assassin and Celestin, coming to his rescue, and rediscovered how much I love them. Not a big surprise really, I love all my boys very much! But I’d lost these two for a while…

So… what is this story about??? Here’s a summary:

Taken as a child from the streets by Gaetano, a Siledian Mafia boss, Idun is now his slave and bodyguard. After a shooting gone wrong, the boss sends Idun to an exclusive resort to recover from his injuries. But Idun knows that when the boss shows kindness, he should be very afraid…
Celestin works against human trafficking, after escaping the bonds of slavery early in his life. When he’s assigned the rescue of Idun, he never imagines he will fall for his charge…
This is a game of cat and mouse, where nobody’s who they seem. Will Idun and Celestin find trust in each other, and will they fight back to back, when the battle begins?

The idea for this story started when I read a post about human trafficking, and in particular children trafficking some years back. It’s a horrible topic, and I hope I’m not offending anyone by adding an erotic slant to it – then again, this is how it works: we all explore different subjects, painful to different degrees, from our perspective and in the ways that inspire us the most.

And these two boys have inspired me a lot, and I hope you love them as much as I do…

Have a great day!

Goals for 2012 – and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone, and may 2o12 bring you all you ever wished for – health and love and happiness and lots of great books to read. :)

I don’t normally sit down and write my resolutions for the year, but I thought to sketch them briefly, mainly for myself so that I can whine when I don’t follow up. ;)

My plans are modest. Relatively.

I have a novella (futuristic m/m erotic romance) and a novel (sci-fi m/m erotic romance) that are in need of an ending and revisions. So I must get around to doing that ASAP!

I have several short stories (m/m erotic romance) that need ending, revision etc.

I have ideas for novels that want to get written! These include Book 2 of Storm Chronicles (aka sequel of The Falcon and the Jackal) and a vampire novel that has been on my mind since September.

And I will be happy if I do these things over the next months!

What are YOUR writerly goals for 2012?
