Hosted by Sizzling PR, today we have an interview with Ella Jade. She'll be talking about a number of things, mainly her book The Lonely Dominant.
Successful businessman Alec Carter realizes his life is less than fulfilled when he meets beautiful Princeton University senior Clara Whittaker at a local coffee shop. Alec experiments in the BDSM lifestyle but doesn't consider himself hardcore until he crosses paths with the obviously submissive Clara. The more time Alec spends with young Clara, the more his dominant tendencies push to the surface. She could be what has been missing.
After her grandmother's death, Clara ends up a guest in Alec's home until she can finish school. She quickly learns she's a natural submissive and decides she wants to explore this new side of herself with the man of house. Alec shows her a life she never knew existed as they enter into a world of role playing, fantasy, and desire. Alec may be the Master, but Clara holds the key to his heart.As the semester comes to an end, so does their arrangement. If Alec doesn't admit his true feelings for Clara, she could walk out of his life forever. But, Alec isn’t sure which she craves more . . . his dominance . . . or his love.
On to the Interview:
Welcome Ella and thank you so much for joining us today.
1. When did you officially pen your first book? Was it also BDSM?
My first book Jocelyn's Choice released in June. It couldn't have been further from a BDSM novel. It's a story of an 18 yr. old girl who finds herself pregnant and alone. Her boyfriend is offered a wonderful opportunity for an internship at Yale. She doesn't want to mess things up for him, so she opts not to tell him until he returns four months later. It's a coming of age love story that deals with some pretty real topics.
2. What Genre would you consider your writing style to be in?
I'm most Contemporary but as long as I'm telling a love story with characters you can connect with, I'm happy.
3. How many books have you written to date?
I have four books under my belt. My goal for 2012 is to have six more published.
4. The cover for The Lonely Dominate is very sexxy, did you come up with the design?
It is very hot. I didn't come up with it. Noble Romance cover artist Fiona Jayde gets all the credit. I adore it.
5. For this particular book, how did you come the setting or idea for the book? In other words why the lonely dominate?
I like to write about strong, take charge, dominant men, but I also want them to be loving and have a softer side. Alec is very domineering in the bedroom, but he has a big heart and I tried to bring that through in the story.
6. Can you give us a little background on Alec and Clara?
Alec is a workaholic. He throws himself into his business and doesn't have time for a traditional relationship. He liked dominate in the bedroom so he seeks out willing submissive partners. He never expects Clara to be one. Clara is down on her luck and homeless. She has one more semester of college to finish so Alec offers her a place to stay. Sparks fly!
7. What draws Alec and Clara together? The loniness, the BDSM or both?
They definitely serve to fulfill a need for one another. Clara is submissive and is intrigued my the BDSM lifestyle. She wants Alec to teach her. He's apprehensive because she's inexperienced, but the more time he spends with her the more captivated he becomes.
8. How off the chart would the sex in The Lonely Dominate be?
It's not crazy. lol I do explore some BDSM themes but I wouldn't call this a hard-core D/s novel. It's a story about two people who have a common interest and they are exploring together. While some scenes take place in the playroom other intimate scenes occur in a more traditional sense as well.
9. When we can we expect your next book? And will it also be BDSM?
I have my first m/m releasing on 12/19. It's a contemporary m/m love story.
As for BDSM...after the first of the year I'm planning the second book in The Lonely Dominant series. It'll be Clara's side of the story. TLD is told from Alec's POV. so now I think it's time for Clara to have her say.
Random fun Questions:
