Today, I have a guest post from Sara Brookes with not only a seriously hot excerpt from her latest erotic romance, Her Master’s Collar, but also a Rafflecopter contest to win a swag pack. Read on to enter :):
I get asked a lot about where I came up with the idea for stories. To be honest, there is no one tried and true way for a story to manifest itself. That was certainly the case when I came up with the idea for Her Master’s Collar.
Believe it or not, it all started with a fortune cookie.
Wondering how in the world a fortune cookie relates to a futuristic erotic romance? Don’t worry, at first I thought it was a little odd too! Futuristic is a genre that I absolutely love to write, but I haven’t written a lot of. Enter the Chinese takeout we ordered one night for dinner. After eating (sweet and sour chicken, my favorite!) I sat back to crack open my fortune cookie to find out what little gem I was being offered that night.
There is safety in courtesy.
What an odd fortune. It certainly didn’t make much sense, as most slips of paper in the tasty cookies tend to do. Then the idea for Her Master’s Collar slapped me upside the head. May/December romance about a couple who’d been torn apart by war, set in the future. They’d have to jettison off the planet for a rescue mission and be forced into close quarters, those flames of passion rearing their sweet, annoying little embers again. Oh, they’d fight and bicker and drive each other insane, but they’d find their footing again.
Still wondering how that fortune played into their budding relationship? You’ll have to read the story to find out…for now how about a little tease?
“Did you take another Master after I left?”
The level demand in Roland’s voice sent a thrill sparking through Korene, her need to please him coming to the forefront of her mind. “No, Sir.”
“So you’ve let no one master you in ten years?”
His stern command had her talking before she realized she’d followed his command. “I threw myself into my career to forget about you. About how you made me feel. How you made me ache for everything you ever gave me—and more. The idea of another master holding command over me wasn’t an idea I wanted to entertain. I had no interest because I didn’t want anyone else to put me on my knees like this.”
Only Roland would ever earn the right.
He gave an exasperated sigh before crouching. His knuckle grazed over her cheek in a heartbreakingly gentle caress that awakened every nerve in her body. “I’m disappointed, pet. I instructed you to move on and find someone else.”
There is no one else, you bastard.
The last thing Korene needs in her life is a former Master who abandoned her ten years ago. But when her employees are taken hostage on Mars, she’s forced to work with Roland whether she likes it or not. Sparks fly the moment the perfectly chiseled man saunters into her conference room; a sign their incredible chemistry is still just as potent.
Roland has a job to do, but he struggles with his unrelenting desire for the only woman he ever loved. Seeing the strong-willed Korene on her knees again is enough to shatter Roland’s willpower. And give him a raging hard-on.
Their distracting lust could flame out of control if they aren’t careful.
Warning: Fire up your thrusters to embark on a secret mission with a snarky submissive who knows the meaning of courtesy and her smoking hot former Marine Dom who isn’t afraid to wait one more day. The sexual chemistry between these two is so sinfully hot, it’ll melt the plastishield of your spacesuit helmet. Houston, we have a problem.
