Gina Kincade Interviews Sexy, Multi-Talented, Naughty Erotic Author Dawne Prochilo on Naughty Nights Press blog!




Naughty Nights Press has the extreme pleasure of welcoming the multi-talented, sexy as hell and equally naughty Dawne Prochilo to the blog today to be interviewed by Gina Kincade!

*Gina does happy dance*




Hi Dawne ! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to host an interview with you on Naughty Nights Press blog! I am so thrilled to have you here hun! With all that you do every single day to be honest I am amazed you even found the time.

You need to relax more. Put your feet up. Perhaps a Caribbean vacation with a favorite author friend or two? *hints relentlessly and giggles at the absurdity of Dawne taking a moment to herself*
Ya right! I know it may never happen but if it does girl you count me in!..lol


Oh Gina, you know if and when I ever escape to a sultry island with cabana boys named Raoul and Rico, you're the first female partner I'd call in...what fun is it to have two sexy men all to myself...oh, well, yes, it can be fun but I would want to share you...with them for a short time.

Anyway we could go on, and on...and on about the sexy young cabana boys for a while...or not. There are people here who wanna know about Dawne, not the men...Oh, on to the juicy info...I mean interview! *wicked grin*


1. Can you share a few “tid bits” about your self? What is a typical day like for you? What “pet peeves” do you have if any?

A typical day for me? There is no such thing. Sometimes I wake up at a normal time (generally by 5am) other times I don't sleep at all. When it comes to a typical day of writing it all depends on deadlines, upcoming writing assigments and my part time work schedule. When the mood strikes to write, I'll stay awake for hours into the night to get the scene, story line or dialogue finished.
I spend the early hours of the morning awake alone answering emails, doing some promoting on social networks, checking my normal haunts for freelance writing gigs and cruising through book reviews.

2. When did you first realize you wanted to be an author?

During my freshman year of high school. My English teacher was a tough old cookie and she demanded more from me. She pushed me, made me think about writing and always pointed out simple faults and downfalls in my writing. She basically used a form of reverse pschycology on me and damned if it didn't work. Gotta love that.

3. What part of the story do you think is your strength to write?

Speaking as an erotic author, I would have to say the tension building up to the main sex scene. I love the sexual desire and passion that starts the entire mood. The feelings and emotions that go into that particular scene really affects me and makes me want to share the desire with my words. It's exhilerating.

4. Can you please share with us how old you were when you wrote your first story?

My earliest memory of writing was when I was in kindergarten and my friend and I write a picture book. She actually found thast book a decade ago and we laughed- I had forgotten all about it.

5. What was your goal for yourself as a writer when you started? Did you meet or surpass it or did it change for you along the way?

My original goal was to just get published. I was hired as a stringer (freelance contributing writer) for a local newspaper. Once I had the taste of seeing my byline I wanted more. Over the years my writing and publishing goals have changed and expanded. I'm always looking for new writing ventures and styles to broaden my hoizons and skill.

6. How did you decide to write books in your specific genre? Was there anything that influenced your choice?

Romance books have been a part of my life since high school so it just seemed to come naturally. I wrote two contemporary romance novels that were published in 2009, then I expanded further and discovered erotic romance. I found my niche in the writing world and am thrilled with my career.

7. How do you become inspired to write?

My imagination plays a large role. Whether it's fantasies, what-ifs or how I'd like to see my love life. I'll sit down at laptop, situate my headphones and listen to rock music. The tempo of the music and sometimes the lyrics get my brain churning and my fingers tapping the keyboard.

8. Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?

I wish it was a schedule but it all comes down to the mood, the muse and time allowance. I write when the mood strikes, when the muse kicks me int he butt or when I have time to get lost in the story.

9. Which comes first, the story, the characters or the setting?

For me it's the basic story then I add in the characters. The setting can be adjusted according to my, and my characters', need. I tend to change the synopsis frequently due to the characters' minds taking over but that's the life of a writer.

10. What are the elements of a great erotic romance for you?

Connection- I know erotic is strong sexual content but all my novels, whether erotic or contemporary, have to display a connection between at least two of the characters. If they fall in love- great. If they just have a sexual relationship- they'll be committed to each other.

11. What are the most challenging and the most rewarding aspects of writing?

Most challenging is finding new story lines and not repeating phrases over and over. I mean, how many words and phrases can be used for the male or female anatomy.
Most rewarding is being able to bring someone into my world and let them enjoy themselves for a few hours. Forget their problems and get lost in love and fantasy.

12. Can you share a little bit about your current release with us? Where can we find it?

What's a woman to do when her sexual needs are ignored? Every woman has needs and sexualdesires.
When Rachel's married lover is selfish, she turns to her best friend, Kari, for support and love. A girl's night in turns into a night of explosive passion and
realization of frenzied love.

13. If you weren't writing, what would you be doing?

I've actually never thought about that. Writing is all I've ever wanted to do. I guess if I had to answer I'd have to say it would have to be something in the office atmosphere. I'm an office administrator for a non-profit organization and camp for special needs adults and children. I love my job, coworkers and the campers.

14. Is there a specific bit of advice you would give to an aspiring author who is looking to publish their work? Traditional or Self-Publishing, which would you suggest?

Be persistent and never, ever give up. With every rejection letter or email I received it made me more determined to succeed and prove myself to those that didn't have faith in me.
I have done both- I have five ebooks out now and one self published sex/relationship advice book through smashwords.

15. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? Where can our readers find you?

Erotic Author S. L. Danielson Interview On Naughty Nights Press Blog!!

Gina Kincade of Naughty Nights Press has the pleasure of an interview with Erotic Author S. L. Danielson today! Woot Woot!

M/M Erotic Author S.L. Danielson joins us on the Naughty Nights Press blog today to share with us a bit about her new book due out March 26 and some information about herself as a person.

S.L Danielson is the author of seven books including:
Lust in London
Ranch Hands
For the Heart of Phillip



Welcome hun. We could not be happier to have you join us!
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to host an interview with you on the Naughty Nights Press blog!



Thank you so much! It’s an honor to be here!


1. Can you share a few “tid bits” about your self? What is a typical day like for you? What “pet peeves” do you have if any?

A few ‘tid bits’ about me would be that I’m a grad student, a cat mom, married over 12 year to a great guy, and really big on family, games, and knowledge in general.

A typical day for me? I have two different poles of that: one where I’m not working (right now) and one where I am working.
The not-working me spends most of the day either playing games, writing, playing with the cats, eating, or going out to figure-skate or bike with my Dad.
At the times where I am working I go get the day job done and think about my stories all during lunch. I always bring a notebook with me. When I come home I write down my ideas and get on with my evening.

Wow, pet peeves. I’d definitely say the biggest one is people not getting back to me. I’m a tad OCD when it comes to that. I write you, I’d like to hear back pdq, thank you. I’m not big on phone calls, so emailing is my main form of communication.

2. When did you first realize you wanted to be an author?

When I was roughly seven years old I had an old desk in my room. I’d spend most of my days (before and after school) drawing, coloring, writing, painting, and creating. It fully developed into a hobby after an 18-day vacation that my family took. I was 12 at the time and bored to tears. Dad gave me pads of paper and markers and I don’t think they heard from me too much after that. J

3. How long have you been writing for publication?

Since 2007, when I first got a notice from the publisher. I realized later it was a vanity press, but I didn’t know the difference yet. After that, I self-published, and only recently got accepted by a ‘real’ publisher.

4. Do you write exclusively erotic romance?

Under this name, yes. Male/male romance has been in my blood since I was 16 years old and the genre fit me perfectly.

5. What made you decide on the M/M Erotic genre as your primary focus?

I think my active imagination plus I felt like the ‘black sheep’ of the family added to it. Gays were always very taboo and never discussed at all in my household. My brother told me the ‘big secret’ of one of his friends being gay. I was hooked! I figured they knew what’s it’s like to be the oddball just like me.

6. What inspires your stories?

Soap operas mostly, but also real life a bit. I’ve taken most of my tales from just thinking of the underdog (which I consider myself to be) and went from there. I’ve been praised for coming up with very likeable, loveable men who are hardly the ‘alpha’ types.

7. What was your goal for yourself as a writer when you started? Did you meet or surpass it or did it change for you along the way?

I have met my writing goals for the most part. I’ve written the ‘great American gay novel’, I’ve been accepted and published. The one thing missing is a bestseller and to see it carried in stores. I’m satisfied with the success I’ve had and want to see them grow.

8. Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?

Go with the flow, definitely. I schedule nothing except a work day. I’ll usually come up with an idea very spontaneously and rush over to the computer to tap it in or grab the nearest pad of paper (which are in every room).

9. Which comes first, the story, the characters or the setting?

The characters. Once you make up a person in your mind, you can fill in the background later with what seems most fitting to them.

10. What are the elements of a great erotic romance for you?

Character development comes first with me. There has to be a foundation to it all, not just instant sex! I don’t operate like that in real life, and though I’ve seen it in movies, it was never an attraction for me. I like a history, and of course, major drama! Lots of my reviews reveal the generous dollops of drama that are in my works. Of course, there’s the sex…but not every other page!

11. What are the most challenging and the most rewarding aspects of writing?

The most challenging aspect would be patience. I’m not a patient person, but I’m trying to develop the virtue. Waiting to hear back from publishers, or edits or whatever…it all takes time. I think I’m a little too OCD with our ‘instant’ world.

Rewarding aspects would be when the beta loves it, the editor loves it, and the cover is phenomenal! And to me, every sale is a reward that says, hey! I’m a professional author!

12. Can you share a little bit about your upcoming release with us? Where can we find it?

My latest book is “Life After Math” which is a sequel to “Love by the Numbers” (2009, Publishamerica). The story follows the couple of Scott and Jared into college where the newly-promised duo has to deal with not only jealous wanna-be lovers, but also Scott’s over-commitment to math tutoring and his new friend, Daniel. It gets very dramatic with a twist at the end.

It can be found right now for pre-order at Silver Publishing’s site, http://silverpublishing.info and its official release date is March 26th. After that, it will be on Amazon, 1Romance, All Romance ebooks, and several other sites.

13. If you weren't writing, what would you be doing?

When I was young I wanted to be one of two things: a figure-skater or a secretary. (chortle). I’ve done the secretary thing, no thanks. The figure-skating is definitely something I’d delve back into (which I am currently doing, by the way).
But I really cannot imagine being something other than an author…it’s what I was put here to do.

14. Is there a specific bit of advice you would give to an aspiring author who is looking to publish their work? Traditional or Self-Publishing, which would you suggest?

Depends on the person and their patience level, plus how much time they have to devote to it. The pluses of self-pub are that you call the shots, but that also means you have to find a cover artist, a beta reader, an editor, and put it out in the world yourself and do all of the marketing.
Traditional they cover the editing, the cover, etc. Most I’ve noticed don’t do a lot of marketing though, except to have it on their site and the other sites.
Remember, it’s your book, tell everyone you know about it. It’s like a resume to the world…

15. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? Where can our readers find you?

One thing I like to ask people is to either rate my books (feedback is always welcome) or if they don’t feel comfortable because of the genre, then please email me at ladyauthorsld@gmail.com. I love fan mail!

People can find me on facebook (for way too many hours in a day) LOL. I also have a blog site at www.ladyauthorsld.blogspot.com. All of my reviews are on goodreads as well.


Thank you S.L ! It’s been great getting to know more about you and your writing. I hope we will do it again real soon!



"Life After Math" By S.L. Danielson
BLURB


Scott Williams, the brilliant math tutor is all grown up and in college. He's anxious to move forward with his schooling and his life in general. He's also thrilled to have lost over 50 pounds in less than a year!

His boyfriend, Jared Adamson, is also with him at the same school. They became promised over the summer and look forward to getting through college and spending the rest of their lives together.

Freshman year goes smoothly, but when sophomore year arrives, everything is turned upside-down. Scott takes up tutoring again and meets a young, shy fellow math tutor named Daniel. Jared is also tempted with the older, very handsome and fiery-haired Taylor who becomes his psychology tutor.

The couple gets their first true dose of real life away from their parents and also of true jealousy. Both Daniel and Taylor present a dilemma for the happy couple as do demands for each other's time! Emotional arguments break out and for the first time in their relationship, they deal with uncertainty over their future together. Finally, after a tumultuous argument, the two break up! What happens next? Will this couple survive these four years together, or will they be just a memory to each other?

Don't forget "Life After Math" by S.L Danielson will be availble March 26th from SilverPublishing!!

Naughty Nights Press Welcomes Erotic Paranormal Author Kimberly Hunter



Kimberly hunter joins Naughty Nights Press and Gina Kincade today to tell us a little about herself and introduce her newest release "The Highest Bidder".

Kimberly has just informed Gina that she will be adding to the fun today by giving away a FREE, yes FREE copy of "The Highest Bidder" to one lucky person who stops by and leaves a comment.

The winner will be announced on the interview post on Sunday! Good luck!



Hi Kimberly! Welcome and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to host an interview with you on Naughty Nights Press!

1. Can you share a few “tid bits” about your self? What is a typical day like for you? What “pet peeves” do you have if any?


Well, I guess you could say I’m an average person, nothing outstanding about me. I work full time, write when I can, and take care of my family.
A typical writing day, when I can get them, is either having my journal close or my laptop. I write longhand, so all my stories are complied in journals. I then type them up when I finish writing them. Makes the editing process go a little faster too.

Hmm, pet peeves, not many of those. But I guess the biggest is head hopping. I’ve read a good many stories, really good stories that would have been better had they been edited for head hoping. Too confusing if you don’t know whose POV you’re in.

2. When did you first realize you wanted to be an author?

I would have to say around the time when my son was two. (He’ll be twenty in March. UGH!!) I used to get those Zebra books in the mail. Had received what I thought was going to be a great Viking story. Gah, what a mess. That poor plot had enough holes to drive a train through it. And the character’s, man, so clichéd. I don’t think I even finished reading it. But the thought came to mind that I could have done a lot better job. Then it clicked, yeah, I could. I started plotting the next day. Still have the beginning of that story too. May even finish it one day.

3. What part of the story do you think is your strength to write?

I don’t think of it as strength per say, but I really love to write dialog. I get a real charge out of having my characters interact with each other and the dynamic between them as they talk.

4. Can you please share with us how old you were when you wrote your first story?

Hmm, I think I was ten. My assignment was to write a story about what kind of Halloween character I would like to be. I chose a witch. I liked the idea of being able to fly on a broom anywhere I wanted to go and cast magic spells. Got an A if I recall.

5. What was your goal for yourself as a writer when you started? Did you meet or surpass it or did it change for you along the way?

Lord, when I started, all I wanted was to finish and get published. LOL! I know, not really that lofty a goal, but like all budding author’s, that’s really all that you think about in the beginning. Now that I have six books under my belt, it’s more about quality. I want to write the stories that readers will think about long after they read that last page. To make my characters so memorable, they stick with you.

6. How did you decide to write books in your specific genre? Was there anything that influenced your choice?

I never knew that M/M was such a popular genre until I stumbled on it by accident. I was looking for a couple books as a treat for myself for completing my first book. I had read a couple ménage books with a M/M couple adding a female. So it wasn’t unknown to me. But when I read my first M/M Romance, well, I was hooked. My second book has a M/M scene in it because I wanted to try my hand at it. Writing that scene came easier to me than writing the same with a M/F. There’s just something about bringing two strong, beautiful men together that just really does it for me.

7. How do you become inspired to write?

Music and Japanese anime mostly. I listen to a lot of Josh Groban, Jason Aldean, Evanescence, and others like that. Plus I love classical. When I have a particularly romantic scene, I’ll put in the soundtrack from “Somewhere in Time”. Such beautiful music set to Rachmaninoff. As for the anime, I’m a big yaoi fan. Lots of ideas from that.

8. Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?

Not really. I work nights four days a week, so the weekends are the only time I really have to do my serious writing.

9. Which comes first, the story, the characters or the setting?

Oh, the characters, definitely. They start having this conversation in my head and I go from there. Sometimes I’ll have an idea for a set place, but the characters always start the conversation first.

10. What are the elements of a great romance for you?

Feeling how much the characters really want and need each other. Yeah, the story itself is what is going to grab me at first, but it’s the characters dynamic that’s going to keep me reading.

11. What are the most challenging and the most rewarding aspects of writing?

Having so many ideas that I can’t get them all down. I’m always working on at least two or three WIP’s, so it gets hard to try to finish one when I have the idea for another pop in my head.

Getting good feedback on my work. That’s the greatest feeling in the world when someone has read one of your stories and tells you how much they really enjoyed it or reading about the characters. Makes all the hard work so worthwhile.

12. Can you share a little bit about your current release with us? Where can we find it?

My newest is a M/M Contemporary. It stars a Japanese businessman, Renjiro Takeda, who is approached by Interpol to help bring down a human trafficking organization run by a psycho. This psycho finds out that Renjiro is undercover and plans to exact his own revenge. His revenge takes the form of Trey Morrison, an American student, who is kidnapped and placed up for bid. Renjiro, of course, wants Trey and buys him. The rest of the story revolves around the two dealing with Trey nearly dying, the psycho wanting their blood, and the two falling deeply in love. But all is not wine and roses for the two. There are some obstacles along the way that will only bring the two even closer together. I hope to do some spin-off stories from some of the secondary characters that really struck a chord with me during the writing of this book.
It will be available in e-book and print through Cobblestone Press.

13. If you weren't writing, what would you be doing?

Goodness, I’m not really sure. Writing has always been such a big part of who I am, I can’t imagine doing anything else. Hmmm, cooking, if I really think about it. When I had the time, I used to bake and make meals from scratch. So yeah, cooking I guess.

14. Is there a specific bit of advice you would give to an aspiring author who is looking to publish their work? Traditional or Self-Publishing, which would you suggest?

Never give up! Anything worth having is never done without hard work and trying your hardest. This is not an easy business to break into, but the rewards are so worth it. And the writers I have met over the years are so encouraging. I always try to give back what was given to me when I first started in this business. So never keep trying!

Oh, well, traditional is best I think. E-books have been really good to me and have taken off to such a degree that most of the big print pubs are getting in on it. Self-publishing has never been all that appealing to me. I like knowing my work has a chance with a pub house. You won’t get that from Self-publishing.

15. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? Where can our readers find you?

I would like to thank my family, friends, and all my readers for your support. You guys have made all my hard work worthwhile. Also, a big thank you to Naughty Nights Press for having me here. You guys are great!!

I have several sites where I can be reached. My own website at www.kimmipoo38.webs.com as well as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Bebo, and Goodreads where I also have a blog. Stop in and say hello any time!



Thank you Kimberly! It’s been great getting to know more about you and your writing. I hope we will do it again real soon!

Don't forget my friends, comment on Kimberly's incredible interview for your chance to win a copy of "The Highest Bidder"!!!




The Highest Bidder by Kimberly Hunter
ISBN: 978-1-60088-641-6

Content: Erotic Romance
This title contains explicit language and graphic sex


Getting kidnapped was bad enough, but when Trey Morrison gets sold off to the highest bidder and drugged to boot, well, he knows that his day had just gone from bad to worst. Or has it? Going undercover to take down a madman, Renjiro Takeda has rubbed elbows with the world’s vilest men.

But spotting Trey on the auction block makes him throw all caution to winds and buy him.
Little does he know that his new purchase will set into motion a chain of events that neither him nor Trey will be able to escape.

It’s a life or death situation for the new lovers and winner takes all.



And Just to tease you all with a tempting taste of "The Highest Bidder" for your reading pleasure, here is Chapter One!


Chapter One, "The Highest Bidder", by Kimberly Hunter

“And now, gentlemen, I have a very special treat. A rare delight just waiting for the right owner,” Howard Rusk said with avaricious glee. He gestured to the small stage behind him. “I present to you…Joshua.”

The curtain rose slowly, building the anticipation, and then gasps and groans could be heard from the audience of select and affluent gentlemen. For sitting center stage on a raised dais was a naked young man. He was placed on a black satin pillow on his knees, his hands tied behind his back, a black leather collar around his neck, and a length of silver chain connecting neck and wrists to pull his head back and show off a well-formed, hairless chest and abs. His wavy, shoulder-length blond hair was tousled, the strands glinting like rare gold coins, and his creamy pale skin seemed to glow with a pearlescent luster. With eyes closed, his face was arrestingly beautiful, the cheekbones tinted a delicate pink, full lips cherry red and slightly parted, his expression one of dreamy bliss. If he’d had wings, he would have resembled an angel come down from heaven. But what drew the eye more wasn’t so much the young man’s beauty as it was his rather impressive erection. Standing straight and proud from his body, the young man’s cock rose like a column of rose-tinted ivory, the mushroom head glistening under the lights with his arousal.

Rusk heard the small audience go wild, but there was only one man he watched, one man whose reaction mattered. And from the look on that man’s face as he gazed upon young Joshua, he had baited his trap well. Now it was just a matter of reeling the man in. There’s a saying about revenge being a dish best served cold, but betrayal, that was best served with a smile.

Holding up his hands, Rusk gestured for silence. “Gentlemen, please!” Once the room was quiet, he continued, “For those of you who are familiar with our policies, know that any information about the PET is given only to potential buyers.” Murmurs began with that statement. “But,” he proceeded loudly, silencing the audience once again, “but, since this is a special treat that I have arranged as a thank-you for all my esteemed guests, exceptions have been made.”

Rusk strolled over to Joshua and stood behind his naked form, greedy gaze slowly mapping the young man’s delicious body. And it was delicious, seeing that the drug they had given him was still keeping him manageable. Rusk grinned maliciously, and then began to run his hands over the softest and smoothest skin he had ever felt. It was too bad he couldn’t keep Joshua for himself, but the moment his contact called about the young man, Rusk knew his captive would be invaluable to his plans. And considering that the young man was also a virgin, well, if his plans went awry, there were certainly others who would be more than eager to take Joshua in. But Rusk had seen the look on his betrayer’s face when Joshua was revealed. The trap would be sprung without a doubt.

“As you can see, Joshua is exquisite in face and form.” His wandering hands got a response, just as he knew they would. “At twenty-three, he’s just the right age for some.” A disappointed moan came from the front. “Sorry, Mr. Shimata.” He knew the old man’s penchant was for young boys with hardly any hair on their balls. “A college student, Joshua has never had a lover, male or female. I’m afraid his only experiences are the frequent hand jobs he has given himself.” He tsked with mock sympathy as he continued to rub and fondle the silky skin under his hand.

Murmuring in the audience grew as the implications of that statement sank in.

“Do you have proof?” asked a distinguished gentleman with silver at his temples, an ungodly expensive suit draping his toned form.

“Of course.” Rusk smiled, gesturing to a tall black man at the edge of the small stage. “This is Dr. Nubu, the personal physician of our Nairobi guests. He was kind enough to examine Joshua. Dr. Nubu.”

The doctor rose and inclined his head respectfully toward Rusk then faced the audience. “I have given Joshua a thorough exam. He is free of disease and is in excellent health, and as stated, untouched and intact.” He nodded to the audience and Rusk again before taking his seat.

Rusk waited in silence for the audience to talk among themselves, letting his hands continue to explore as much of the pale body he could reach as Joshua began to writhe and moan.

“I’ll give you what you want soon, my lovely,” he whispered silkily into Joshua’s ear.

“Please,” came Joshua’s raspy plea, his beautiful skin flushed, toned muscles straining as he tried to find relief.

Rusk chuckled, knowing the drug had Joshua firmly in its thrall, though a bit surprised at how quickly the young man had succumbed. Then again, Rusk knew from the accounts he had received from his connection that the young man’s sexual experiences weren’t exactly satisfying or fulfilling, so Joshua’s inhibited response was an added bonus to the drug’s already potent effects. Of course, if the drug could bring out this kind of response, then a double dose would be even better. Rusk grinned at that, knowing the end result would be sweet indeed. Oh yes, he would make sure the exquisite Joshua received another treatment of the wonderful drug before leaving on his journey. Rusk was sure his betrayer would appreciate the results.

“Seeing as we have such a rare jewel, I’m afraid the price will be a bit higher than usual,” Rusk said, not hearing as many grumbles to that announcement as he thought he would. But then, he had baited his trap well with the beautiful virgin sacrifice, so now all he had to do was wait.

“And what is your starting price?” asked a dark-skinned man in flowing white robes.

Rusk slowly moved his right hand down Joshua’s chest and stomach, making his way to Joshua’s weeping cock. “A hundred thousand.” He wrapped his fingers around the rock-hard shaft.

“Oh God!” Joshua moaned loudly, head thrown back with pleasure.

As the dickering grew and the price rose ever higher, Rusk continued to stroke Joshua’s cock, continued to push him toward release. It was all for his prey’s benefit, of course, showing how responsive Joshua was, hearing such wonderful sounds of pleasurable agony bursting forth the closer he came to his peak. Then it was down to two men, a senator from the US and a Japanese businessman.

“Will you counter Mr. Takeda’s bid at nine hundred thousand, Senator Ross?” Rusk asked as he sped up the stroking of Joshua’s weeping cock.

“Oh, God! Please!” Joshua cried out, his writhing body glistening with sweat, his hips pumping.

Rusk could see the naked want on the senator’s face, but in the end, he merely shook his head in the negative.

Grinning with satisfaction, Rusk took one of Joshua’s nipples, pinching it as he stroked Joshua’s cock faster. “The bidding is closed at nine hundred thousand, sold to Mr. Takeda.”

The moment he said “sold”, Joshua came, screaming his release as he spurted onto the black satin pillow. Rusk smiled with pleasure. His betrayer would soon know how it felt to be helpless, how it felt to go against Howard Rusk. The trap was sprung.



* * * * *



Renjiro Takeda had come to tonight’s auction with one goal in mind: to get the last piece of evidence to put Howard Rusk in jail for human trafficking.

For three long years, Renjiro had worked undercover with several different agencies coordinated with Interpol. Using state-of-the-art technology, a small chip had been implanted under the skin of one armpit. That chip gathered all the information needed without Renji having to put his neck out unnecessarily. Still, he was in a dangerous situation, rubbing elbows with the world’s most dangerous, most ruthless, and most corrupt men it had ever been his misfortune to meet. But he had made a promise and he intended to keep it.

As was standard procedure, the auctions were by invitation only and held at private estates. Tonight’s was held at a private hotel on the eastern seaboard of the United States that catered to the überwealthy. The perfect location for such a high-stakes operation. And it was high stakes. Howard Rusk had been trafficking for years, catering to the wealthy and depraved, getting children as young as toddlers, male or female, and all the way up to grown adults. And the requests just kept coming. Tell Rusk what you needed, what you wanted, and he got it. No questions. Just the right amount of money and he delivered.

Then there was the small army of guards he kept close at all times. All were ex-military and all very lethal. Those few stupid enough to go against Rusk or had tried to stop his operation had met with untimely and very painful deaths. That included the last undercover detective working with Interpol, who had been a childhood friend of Renjiro’s. Renjiro and his friend had lost touch over the years, their dreams going in different directions, his friend to law enforcement and Renjiro to architecture, finally taking over his father’s multimillion-dollar company. But both had renewed their friendship many years later and talked from time to time.

Which is why when Renjiro learned of his friend’s death, he was greatly saddened. Soon after, though, that sadness turned to anger when his friend’s captain explained his death and asked that Renjiro join their team in taking Rusk down. Renjiro was an established and wealthy businessman who had corporate dealings with some of the men who went to these auctions. The fact that he knew the deceased detective wasn’t a problem. They rarely ever met and the few calls they had exchanged were mostly on holidays. Their connection was mere coincidence should anyone decide to look closely.

After Renjiro agreed to help, it was months before he received an invitation. Rusk was a greedy bastard, but he wasn’t stupid. Renjiro had never been to an auction nor had he ever voiced any desire to do so. Hence, false accounts of Renjiro’s rather odd activities and unusual tastes had to be leaked.

The bait had worked. And now, three years later, Renjiro’s mission was nearly complete. The team needed one more piece of evidence to nail Rusk, and the nightmare would end.

“Mr. Takeda, how are you this evening?” asked a well-armed guard in a three-piece suit at the entrance to the small conference room of the private hotel.

He smiled. “’I’m well, thank you.”

“Excellent.” He returned the smile. “Your usual seat has been arranged, so please enjoy yourself.”

“I will, thanks.” He casually walked through the doors to see a small curtained stage and ten round tables that had already started to be filled with those eager to see Rusk’s newest acquisitions.

Renjiro took a seat near the back but with a clear view of the stage, and sat down.

“Ah, Takeda-kun, how are you?”

Renjiro heard the question in Japanese and stood. “Shimata-sama.” He bowed low to the elder Japanese man whom he towered over. Mr. Shimata was wearing his usual black-and-white silk robes. “I’m well, sir,” he replied in Japanese.

“Good, good. How’s business?”

“Just opened a new office in New York.”

“Expanding.” He nodded with approval. “You need to grow to survive.”

“Yes, sir.”

Mr. Shimata patted Renjiro’s arm. “I will send your father a little something to celebrate the occasion.”

“He’d be honored, sir.” He bowed low again.

Mr. Shimata returned the bow then moved to take his seat near the front of the stage, his two mammoth bodyguards flanking him. Without weapons, of course, not that they really needed them.

Renjiro kept his face blank, letting nothing show as he took his seat again. Mr. Shimata was an old friend of his father’s, and though he had heard rumors of his illicit relations, he had never imagined that they were true. Nor that he would see firsthand the type of man Mr. Shimata really was. It was because of his father’s long friendship with him that he treated Mr. Shimata with such respect, but it was all for show. The moment he laid eyes on Mr. Shimata at his first auction, whatever respect he had for the man had died. A serving girl came around seconds later bringing out drinks for everyone and a bottled water for Renjiro.

“Well, well, didn’t expect to see you here.”

Turning at the snide comment, Renjiro locked eyes with Senator Orin Ross, a stout middle-aged man from the American Midwest. Renjiro kept his seat, seeing no reason for formalities with such a crude man.

“Business kept me away.” He shrugged.

“I’ll bet,” Ross snorted. “More like that new PET you outbid me for.”

Renjiro shrugged again, letting the ill-mannered man think what he wanted.

The senator frowned, visibly trying not to lose his composure. “Stay out of my way, Takeda.” Then he stalked past to take his seat near two black men with clear African roots.

Renjiro sighed, then raising the bottle to his lips, took a drink of his water. The senator was still pissed about losing that young boy, but Renjiro couldn’t help it. The kid was barely driving age and looked so helpless and fragile that Renjiro was bidding before he even knew he had raised his hand. But he would have done it again if it meant saving one more innocent from a life of depravity.

When all the arrivals were seated and comfortable, and all doors were locked and secured, two guards were each posted by the doors and flanked each side of the stage. It wasn’t a show of force per se, but a not-so-subtle reminder that if you won your bid, you paid, immediately. And of course Rusk was paranoid. Having a price on your head by every law agency in the free world did that to a man.

Renjiro didn’t have long to wait when their host finally made his appearance. Of medium height and build, Howard Rusk had the swarthy good looks of his Latin American heritage and the personality of a chameleon. One never knew how he was going to act in any given situation, and that unpredictability was what made Rusk dangerous. He’d been known to shoot men for laughing too loud.

Coming out to mingle a bit with his guests, Rusk wore his signature white and black: white suit and shirt, black tie and shoes. But there was something else about the man tonight that raised Renjiro’s hackles. He looked too happy, too cheerful. Not unusual; Rusk was always wearing a smile, but Renjiro’s instincts were screaming that something was up. He would have to be on guard just in case his cover went to shit along with everything else.

Seeing that Rusk had spotted him, Renjiro stood, bowing slightly. “Mr. Rusk”

“Good to see you tonight, Mr. Takeda. We missed you last time.” He returned the bow with a bright smile.

“Regrettably, I had business to attend to.”

“Then no troubles with your PET?”

Renjiro grinned. “No, he has behaved perfectly.”

“Excellent.” Rusk beamed. “So, what can I get you this evening?”

“Well, I need to get him a companion. I can’t be with him all the time. Business, you know.”

Rusk nodded thoughtfully. “Of course.”

“So I thought I would get him a little friend to keep him company while I’m away.”

“Not a problem.” Rusk grinned, patting Renjiro’s shoulder. “I have several you might be interested in.”

“Sounds good.”

“Just make sure you don’t spoil him with his new friend.” Rusk chuckled good-naturedly.

Renjiro gave him a malicious grin. “Not to worry. The boy knows who his master is.” He made his eyes go cold, his face a hard mask. “And his friend will too.”

Rusk took a moment to look Renjiro in the eye then apparently approved of what he saw. “Glad to hear it.” He left to finish his rounds of the room.

Once the meet and greet was finished, everyone settled down and Rusk took position on the center of the small stage.

“Again, welcome, gentlemen. I have a good selection for your viewing pleasure tonight, so let’s start the bidding.” He gestured to a guard to bring out the first victim.

After that, Renjiro watched as eight young men and three boys were bid on and sold. He bid as well, throwing off suspicion, but was outbid each time. He just wasn’t able to bring himself to fake any kind of enthusiasm. It was as if each time he came to an auction, another piece of his soul died, unable to help those being bought like cattle by the scum of the earth. The thought of what their lives were going to be like had kept him up many a night, heart heavy, mind troubled as the faces of those he couldn’t save flashed through his conscience. But still he came, gathering more evidence against Rusk to save countless others from a life of slavery and hell. It was that thought and the promise he’d made that kept him going, kept him from losing his sanity. Seeing Rusk pay would be worth the living nightmare of the past three years.

Hearing Rusk’s next announcement snapped Renjiro out of his reverie as a feeling of unease skittered down his spine. It wasn’t like Rusk to change anything on the agenda. He liked order and strived to make sure his schedule wasn’t deviated from in any way. But once Renjiro saw the beautiful young man on the stage, he understood Rusk’s need for a surprise. He also couldn’t take his eyes off him.

While not making a secret of his sexual orientation, Renjiro had never made it public either. His private life was just that: private. His family knew, of course, and his father, while not exactly happy his eldest son was gay, knew that no matter Renjiro’s sexual preferences there was no one better suited to take over the company. That was proven when after five years Renjiro had nearly doubled the company’s profits and had expanded to four countries, two offices in America alone.

But Renjiro was still careful. As the years passed and homosexuality became more acceptable, there were still those who weren’t as tolerant, those who could use his behavior to break a company. So Renjiro kept his lifestyle out of the public eye and in the bedroom where it belonged. And the more he saw of Joshua’s pale beauty, the more he wanted to put him in said bedroom.

Which was quite odd in itself. Renjiro’s taste in men didn’t usually lean to the Caucasian persuasion. Not that he had never been with a white man. There were the two Americans in college and that rather crazy affair with a Scot several years ago, but most of his lovers had been Asian like himself. Thinking back, none of those men, Asian or otherwise, had ever got him hard with just one look or had his blood surging at the thought of all that pale skin under him. Fortunately, his carnal thoughts were brought to heel when one of the men from Nairobi stood up.

“I have given Joshua a thorough exam. He is free of disease and is in excellent health, and as stated, untouched and intact.” Renjiro stiffened slightly at that statement, and then nearly saw red when Rusk began to run his hands over Joshua’s smooth skin.

“Please.”

It was that breathy plea that decided Renjiro. Whatever it took, however much it cost, he was getting Joshua out. After that, he didn’t know. He couldn’t really think with his dick aching and the sight of Joshua responding so seductively to Rusk’s ministrations. But he knew he had to save Joshua and he would, countering every bid as Joshua writhed and moaned while Rusk continued to pleasure him. The sight sent Renjiro’s senses reeling, his heart pounding with every pump of Rusk’s hand until only two bidders remained, him and Senator Ross.

“Will you counter Mr. Takeda’s bid at nine hundred thousand, Senator Ross?”

Renjiro saw a burning lust in the senator’s eyes, then defeat as he shook his head in the negative. Those eyes then turned to smoldering hatred as he trained them on Renjiro. He had definitely made an enemy in the senator, but then Joshua was crying out his release and all thoughts fled of the senator and his anger as Renjiro watched, transfixed by the sight of that luscious body straining, pale skin flushed rose, beautiful face a mask of blissful agony. Renjiro nearly came himself from the sight, his iron control hanging by a thread. That thread almost snapped when Joshua slumped over in an exhausted heap at Rusk’s feet. Rusk chuckled, motioning a guard over.

“Take Mr. Takeda’s new PET and prepare him to leave.”

The guard nodded. “Yes, sir, Mr. Rusk.” He reached down and picked Joshua up as if he weighed nothing.

He looked so small and fragile in the large guard’s arms that Renjiro had to force himself to remain sitting lest he show any weakness. It was a weakness that Rusk would be sure to exploit if he saw it.

“If you’d be so kind, Mr. Takeda.” Rusk smiled merrily as he took out a kerchief to wipe his hands, bidding Renjiro to follow.

Renjiro nodded, glad that after he stood, his suit jacket hid the monster erection that refused to go down. But from the knowing grin Rusk gave him, the man already knew. Renjiro gave nothing away, though, his face a mask of indifference, body relaxed. Rusk softly chuckled, leading him to a small room behind the stage where a laptop was set up on a table. Renjiro wasted no time, going to the computer and bringing up his banking account to transfer the appropriate funds to Rusk’s untraceable account.

“You surprised me tonight, Mr. Takeda.” Rusk put the kerchief in his pocket and took a seat in the sparse room, crossing his legs at the ankles in a relaxed manner.

“Oh?” Renjiro finalized the transaction, not bothering to look Rusk’s way.

“Of all the men here, you were the last one I would have expected to take Joshua. He’s not your usual type.”

Renjiro looked up to find Rusk’s piercing black eyes leveled at him, the challenge in those dark depths clear.

“I wanted him,” Renjiro stated, not bothering to lie. Not much point really.

Rusk chuckled. “And I have the distinct feeling that you deny yourself few things, Mr. Takeda.”

“Very few.” Renjiro grinned.

Rusk inclined his head in acknowledgement as the computer beeped. The money had gone through and was now safely in Rusk’s account. Rusk got up and went to check the screen, making sure all was right, and then he powered the laptop down and closed the lid.

Naughty Nights Press Interviews Erotic Paranormal Author Stacey Kennedy! Stacey's Newest Release "A Broken Bond" Will Be Available March 11!






Naughty Nights Press is so excited to have Stacey Kennedy here to tell us a little about herself and her daily routine. She also has a wickedly awesome new paranormal release in just two days!!! "A Broken Bond" will be available March 11 from Amira Press!!





Hi Stacey! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to host an interview with you on Naughty Nights Press!

1. Can you share a few “tid bits” about your self? What is a typical day like for you? What “pet peeves” do you have if any?

I love the paranormal romance/urban fantasy genre and love a series more!! Nothing can hook me in more than an adventure and one that keeps on going. I love a page turner, one where I’m up at a ridiculous time and my eyes burn because I can’t stop reading. Witty characters, dominant men, danger, action, romance and hot sex―oh my!

I am a thirty two year old wife, mom, house cleaner, cook, teacher, play-doh extraordinaire, swing pusher, toddler chaser after – who loves the outdoors, curling up with the latest flick, and if I’m not plugging away at a new novel, I’ve got my nose buried deep in a good book.

A typical writing day for me is up at seven, kids off to school by 8:30, then I write until 12:30 when the little guy comes home. After that I’m back into mommy mode.

2. When did you first realize you wanted to be an author?

My journey as a writer began as a way to keep my brain alive since being a stay at home mom can be a little let’s say numbing. It was an escape from screaming kids, dirty diapers and plain old mom duty.

It started as a hobby, but as the stories progressed it became a passion. Now, I indulge at nap time, especially the juicy bits! Every mom needs a good thrill!

3. What part of the story do you think is your strength to write?

I think I have two really strong points to my writing. The first is sex scenes. They are by far the easiest for me to write. The other, is emotional scenes which I guess is why I find sex scenes so effortless. I’m a very emotional person so I think that side of me tends to come out in my writing.

4. Can you please share with us how old you were when you wrote your first story?

My first story I ever wrote was, The Willow and I started it in 2009 so it actually wasn’t that long ago. I never had dreams of becoming an author growing up. Now looking back, I can see little signs that pointed to this being my future career, but at the time I just didn’t know it. It wasn’t until the idea for The Magical Sword series came to me did I have any ambition to write a novel. But I’m glad I did because it’s been a fantastic journey.

5. What was your goal for yourself as a writer when you started? Did you meet or surpass it or did it change for you along the way?

Truthfully, I don’t really have writing goals. I just love to write. So, that’s what I keep doing and I hope that my readers continue to enjoy the stories I write. Maybe one day I’ll write a longer story that I can submit to an agent to hit it “big time”, but right now, I’m very happy where I am.

6. How did you decide to write books in your specific genre? Was there anything that influenced your choice?

I only read urban fantasy/paranormal romance, so it wasn’t a hard decision to know that I would write in this genre. I love powerful werewolves and sexy vampires. I can’t ever see myself venturing out into another genre...but I suppose, I should never say never. Who knows what the future holds.

7. How do you become inspired to write?

The characters are what inspire me. I always start out with a simple idea that is a starting off point. Usually after I’ve fleshed out the first three chapters, which I hate doing by the way, I’m captivated and eager to tell their lives.

8. Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?

I’m a panster all the way. I have no schedule, no plan, no plotting. I just sit down with my laptop and write, open to wherever the story wants to take me. Sometimes this creates difficult edits afterwards as I try and weave it all together to make sure everything makes sense, but I just can’t work any other way.

9. Which comes first, the story, the characters or the setting?

It’s always different. For example, with A Broken Bond, an erotic paranormal romance that releases with Amira Press on March 11th, the idea for this story started with the concept of one woman running away from her mate that she refuses and her being saved by another werewolf. So, that simple idea started the story for me.

But with The Magical Sword series, published with Liquid Silver, those stories were all created with one character in mind. I knew exactly how I wanted to portray her. Of course though, I had no clue where the story was going to go until I was writing it.

10. What are the elements of a great erotic romance for you?

If it’s believable. That is all it takes for me. One of my pet-peeves in erotic romance is when people throw around words or actions that don’t suit the characters. I need to believe that the...um...events they are doing are something that the character would actually do. And passion is a must when I’m reading an erotic romance. I want the heat to be smoking off the page. I want to feel the need they have for each other and I want to experience that journey with them.

11. What are the most challenging and the most rewarding aspects of writing?

Most challenging for me is edits. They are brutal. By the time I submit a story, I have read it over usually four times. Then, when edits begin I read the story another four times. So...that’s a lot of reading the same story. You can imagine that you begin to hate your own story.

But on the other side of that, it’s the most gratifying when you see your work looking all polished and pretty. When you read through and every sentence flows beautifully with no flaws in the story line―that’s a pretty amazing feeling.

12. Can you share a little bit of info about your current release or upcoming releases with us? Where can we find them?

I’m really excited to share with you all that A Broken Bond – A Wolf Tracks Novel will be released by Amira Press on March 11, 2011.
If you love Alpha werewolves, hot sex and a love story...you'll love this novella!!!

Two years ago, Cash lost his mate and abandoned his Montana pack. Now, he has found a reason to return. Rylie, daughter of the Wyoming Alpha, life has been uprooted. In less than twenty four hours, she has discovered her mate, Layne, refused him, and watched him kill her entire family to claim her. And now, she is on the run.
On her journey to free herself from Layne, destiny brings her Cash, a wolf determined to give her aid to right his wrongs. But how far will he go? When Rylie’s life is on the line, will he forget his pain to save her or will his loss seal her fate?

13. If you weren't writing, what would you be doing?

Spending time with my two young children, hubby and doing mommy things.

14. Is there a specific bit of advice you would give to an aspiring author who is looking to publish their work? Traditional or Self-Publishing, which would you suggest?

Personally, I’d say always go the agent route first. What do you have to lose? Make sure your work is polished and you have a fabulous query letter, then send away. If you get no bites at your work, you can always try e-publishing. I’ve had a fantastic experience with my epubs and I’ve learned so much! If you decide to go the self-publishing route, spend the money and get an editor to look over your work. If you are putting it out there, you want it looking its best.

15. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? Where can our readers find you?

I love hearing from readers and just chatting normal everyday stuff. So, please come and follow me.
