The Story Behind Tattoos

By Cynthia Sax on September 2, 2015

I LOVE hearing the stories behind tattoos. My tattooed heroes always have a good reason for getting the tattoos they have.

Logan Ross, the sexy financier hero of One Night With My Billionaire Master, has a dragon tattoo, winding up his left side.

It is somewhat similar to this one.

Why did he get a dragon tattoo? As he says, “Bulls make money when the market goes up. Bears make money when the market does down. Dragons find treasure in every market.”

Hawke, the tattooed bad boy biker in Sinful Rewards, has a barbed wire tattoo around his right bicep. Why? Because the tattoo was in memory of his best friend and losing him was like losing his right arm. The two men were inseparable.

Rage, the cyborg hero in Releasing Rage, has a tattoo also. His model number is inked on his cheek. This reinforces that he’s viewed as a machine, as a product to be coded, not as the living, breathing being he is. Every being looking at his face will know what he is.

Do you have a tattoo? What is the story behind it?

Note: If you purchased Mastered 2, you already have this story.

One night. No one must know.

This is the text I sent Logan Ross this morning. The billionaire financier is my father’s number one nemesis and has been pursuing me for months. He wants to own me, completely, promising exquisite pleasure balanced by equally intense pain, vowing to dominate me, to show me wicked things a virgin like myself shouldn’t be interested in.

But I am extremely interested, and I’ll risk everything—my job, my family, my future—to experience one night of total submission with this powerful Dom.

Will one night be enough for both of us?

Interview With Zoë Mullins

By Cynthia Sax on September 1, 2015

I sat down (virtually) with Zoë Mullins for a short interview. Zoë Mullins’s latest release is Winning Cait, a Contemporary Erotica.


Cynthia Sax: What makes Jackson so very sexy?

Zoë Mullins: Jackson is an alpha male. Protective. Confident. In control. These characteristics help define him as a Dom, but it is these characteristics that once scared Cait away. He is used to people doing what he tells them to because they respect and trust him, but a dozen years ago Cait was too young to appreciate that and felt smothered.

I think what makes Jackson particularly sexy is not because he knows what she needs in the bedroom, but what she needs outside of it. He is willing to take the time to earn her trust as well as her submission.

Cynthia Sax: Where is Winning Cait set?

Zoë Mullins: Not surprisingly a lot of my favorite books have BDSM elements, but they always seem to take place in larger cities with seeming unlimited access to clubs and dungeons. People in small town are kinky too, didn’t you know.

Winning Cait takes place in a small town and features two people getting a second chance at love – a chance to get things right. People in a small town can have long memories and aren’t afraid to take sides. In fact the very lack of privacy in a small town make for its own set of complications.


Cynthia Sax: Is Winning Cait a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?

Zoë Mullins: I knew from the beginning that I wouldn’t be able to leave this group of characters without telling all of their stories, so there will be at least two more stories.

The next one, which I’ve already begun working on, will feature Cait’s best friend, Sophie. When Sophie was diagnosed with cancer, she needed to summon all her courage to fight it. To do so she buried her submissive nature and ended her relationship with her Dom, taking on for herself the role of Domme. Her sexuality was one thing she could control when her body was otherwise rebelling against her. But her sub knows she isn’t happy, and Sophie’s Dom wants her back. Can they work together to give Sophie what she needs?

After that I’d like to do a story about Patrick and Samantha.


Cynthia Sax: What advice would you give new writers?


Zoë Mullins:
The best piece of advice I ever received was to ‘Read. Read. Read. Write. Write. Write.’ Learn the craft from those you love to read. And never give up. If you feel you were born to be a writer, as long as you are putting words to paper, you are a writer. Don’t let anyone take that away from you.

Thank you, Zoë Mullins, for joining us today!

*****************************************************************************

After more than a decade, Cait returns home to St. Augustin and the Dom she left behind. A pampered sub, now widowed, Cait has had to adjust to making decisions for herself for the first time in years. With some help from her friends, she’s been able to begin the business she always wanted.

Then Jackson walks into her studio and it’s as if their years apart never happened. As if she hadn’t left him for his best friend. Their intense chemistry is still there, but she’s already balancing running a new business and making ends meet. Does she have room in her life for Jackson, or better yet, is she willing to relinquish her newfound control?

He’s not going to give her a choice. This time he’s determined to earn her submission, and have her back, not only as his sub, but as his wife.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

Interview With Zenobia Renquist

By Cynthia Sax on August 31, 2015

I sat down (virtually) with Zenobia Renquist for a short interview. Zenobia Renquist’s latest release is VIP Room Service (Other Related Duties #1), a Contemporary Erotica with BDSM AND a MFM Menage. It is currently on sale for 99 cents!


Cynthia Sax: How does VIP Room Service start?

Zenobia Renquist: VIP Room Service (Other Related Duties #1)—on sale for 99¢ (regularly $2.99) until 26 Sep—starts with Lexie headed to the time clock after a long day on her feet, cleaning rooms and other such things hotel housekeepers do. She’s tired and wants to be home so she can get off her feet. I started the story there because that’s a place most people have been and can relate to easily. Clockwatchers of the world united in a common goal of hurrying up the second hand so they can leave already. But, of course, this is the beginning of a story so Lexie doesn’t get to go home.

Cynthia Sax: Where is VIP Room Service set?

Zenobia Renquist: The story is set is a very posh five-star hotel with all the glitz and glamor that entails. The locale is sexy because this is an upscale establishment where the cheapest room is way more expensive than the normal traveler can afford so you wouldn’t expect anything bordering on illegal going on in the VIP rooms…or would you? I’ve always held the belief that only rich people can afford to break (or bend) the law and Mr. Malena is no exception.


Cynthia Sax: Is VIP Room Service part of a series?

Zenobia Renquist: Most definitely a series, though the stories are all stand alone. The common theme uniting each title is the reason for the series name—other related duties. Anyone who has signed a work contract has seen that phrase at the bottom in small print. It’s meant to encompass anything the employer forgot to list under work duties so the employee can’t later say, when asked to perform a task, “that’s not my job.” Well in this series, that catch-all phrase means way more than running out to get donuts or staying late to plan an office picnic. There is only one title in the series at the moment, but the next heroine—a live-in personal assistant—should be due out in the next few months.


Cynthia Sax: What one piece of advice would you give new writers?


Zenobia Renquist:
Don’t be afraid to write what you love. If you love it, there is a reader out there who will love it as well. It’s just a matter of finding that reader and hoping said reader has a lot of like-minded friends. When you write what you love, writing isn’t work. There’s plenty of aspects of this profession that are work—hard work at that. Writing shouldn’t be counted on that list. Editing however is, but that’s a totally different animal.

Thank you, Zenobia Renquist, for joining us today!

Zenobia Renquist’s Website: http://zenobiarenquist.com/

*****************************************************************************

She offers satisfaction above and beyond what is requested.

Lexie’s job as a maid at a five-star hotel doesn’t normally include the unique and risqué form of room service that rich guest Mr. Malena has requested, nor the generous tip he’s offered. Submission and exhibition and a ménage. Lexie can’t resist. What should have been a one-time thing turns into an introduction into the sensual world of customer satisfaction. This is one workplace encounter that could get her fired…or will it?

SciFi Saturday News – Star Trek Beyond Leonard Nimoy Tribute, New Star Wars Characters, And Awesome Space Photos

By Cynthia Sax on August 29, 2015

These are some of the interesting SciFi developments I spotted this week.


Awesome Photo Of The Twin Jet Nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope snapped one of the most gorgeous photos I’ve ever seen. As Amanda Kooser shares

“A two-lobed nebula blossoms outward from a central star system. Jets of gas extend in elongated bubbles.” Read the entire article if you wish to learn more about nebula.


Astronauts Drink Recycled Urine

From the beautiful to the gross. (grins) Ellen Brait shares

“What’s the difference between American and Russian astronauts on the International Space Station? The Americans drink their urine, the Russians don’t.

“It tastes like bottled water,” Layne Carter, water subsystem manager for the ISS at Nasa’s Marshall Space Flight Center told Bloomberg. “As long as you can psychologically get past the point that it’s recycled urine and condensate that comes out of the air.”

Condensate is the collected breath and sweat of the crew, shower runoff, and urine from animals on board the station.”

A Closer Look At Ceres

I love referring to real planet names in my stories. I usually add something to them. Ceres would become Ceres IV because they’re not the same planet. But I think it’s important that we are familiar with the names.

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft snapped this awesome photo of Ceres. Ceres is small, no bigger than 590 miles at its widest point (compared to Earth at 7,926 miles – http://www.space.com/17638-how-big-is-earth.html ) but it is fascinating, a great setting for a story.

More Planets! Kepler 452b

Dirk Schulze-Makuch shares

“The discovery of Kepler 452b, a planet orbiting a star similar to our own sun and just 4 percent larger and 10 percent brighter, hit the news recently. Detected by the Kepler Space Telescope, the planet is a so-called “super Earth” with five times the mass of Earth and a 60 percent larger diameter. Kepler 452b orbits its star every 385 days, again very similar to our own world.”

John Grunsfeld, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate spoke at the NASA’s headquarters in Washington.

“On the 20th anniversary year of the discovery that proved other suns host planets, the Kepler exoplanet explorer has discovered a planet and star which most closely resemble the Earth and our Sun”.

Star Wars, JJ Abrams and Kylo Ren

JJ Abrams continues to drive me and all other Star Wars fans crazy with teasers about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This week, he was talking about Kylo Ren, the mysterious broadsaber wielding hooded character.

“Kylo Ren is not a Sith.” JJ Abrams shares. “He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.”

Star Trek Beyond Tribute To Leonard Nimoy

Because the Star Wars hype isn’t enough to drive me bonkers, the cast of Star Trek is adding to the excitement.

Alyssa Montemurro shares

“The cast of ‘Star Trek Beyond’ have paid a moving tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy through a new video created as part of their Star Trek: To Boldly Go charity campaign — a cause that was near and dear to his heart.”

Zachary Quinto, Star Trek Beyond’s Spock, shares.

“Leonard was an actor, a champion of the arts and a true inspiration to so many. Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard’s love for the human spirit shone through everything he did. He touched lives around the world and he is greatly missed.”

So true!

Half Man. Half Machine. All Hers.

Rage, the Humanoid Alliance’s most primitive cyborg, has two goals—kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that’s all he’s been programmed to experience.
Until he meets Joan.

Joan, the battle station’s first female engineer, has one goal—survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.

When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage’s priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg’s heart for both love and revenge?

Interview With Rage from Releasing Rage

By Cynthia Sax on August 29, 2015

Kate Hill has interviewed Rage from Releasing Rage on Compelling Beasts today.
He’s a primitive C model cyborg, not one for chatter, so it is a very short interview. (grins)

http://kate-hill.com/compellingbeastsblog/2015/08/29/character-interview-rage-from-releasing-rage-by-cynthia-sax/

Here’s a snippet…

Do you have a love interest?
There is one human female, Joan, whom I might allow to live longer than the rest. She… interests me. When I see her, smell her, touch her, my human side says she is mine.
But when she betrays me, as all humans do, she’ll die.

If you wish to ask him any questions, he’ll answer them.
Note: Cyborgs don’t lie and words are not Rage’s forte. Expect brief and to-the-point answers.

Cyborgs And Nudity

By Cynthia Sax on August 28, 2015

When Joan first meets Rage in Releasing Rage, he’s completely naked. He feels no shame about this. He’s accustomed to being bare, to being poked and prodded. The humans who manufactured him treat him like a weapon to be used, like a machine.

Machines don’t feel modesty. They’re taken apart and put back together, without any thought about their feelings. Excess clothing is impractical and viewed as unnecessary. It slows repairs and inhibits movement.

Rage, being an older cyborg, is aware that Joan, being human, is embarrassed by his nudity. At first, he doesn’t care about her feelings. He hates all humans. It gives him pleasure to embarrass her.

It gives Rage even more pleasure to humiliate her by demanding that she strip naked also. He does want to see all of her (he IS male) and he likes that they’re on equal footing. But he also derives some joy from her discomfort.

The younger cyborgs aren’t as angry as Rage is. They’re simply clueless. They’ve spent most of their lifespans naked and have no idea that this might be wrong. They don’t even have regular clothing. They have battle armor, which is uncomfortable to wear all the time, and nothing else.

What does this mean? You can expect quite a bit of nudity in future stories. Human heroines will not only see their heroes in the buff but they’ll see all of his friends naked also.

And the heroes won’t view that as wrong.

Interview With Jane Leopold Quinn

By Cynthia Sax on August 27, 2015

I sat down (virtually) with Jane Leopold Quinn for a short interview. Jane Leopold Quinn’s latest release is Welcome to Dust-Part 1-Eve and Brandon, part of Smokin’ Hot Mini Tales of the Olde West, an Erotic historical western romance serial!


Cynthia Sax: What makes Brandon so very sexy?

Jane Leopold Quinn: You mean I have to explain what makes a cowboy sexy? ;-) Brandon Prosper looks like the quintessential cowboy in a Stetson and has a secret to boot. He’s an undercover federal marshal looking for train robbers. He takes his mission seriously but is distracted by the beauteous Eve Storm. He flirts wildly with her, giving her the idea that’s all he is — a flirt. And the fact that Eve easily handles the riff raff coming in for drinks doesn’t threaten his masculinity. He gets a kick out of watching her put the bozos in their place.

Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Welcome to Dust?

Jane Leopold Quinn: I’ve been trying to remember exactly where the story of Dust and its denizens came from. I wanted to try to write a serial. Okay, that’s a start. I just began making notes. The town name, Dust, describes exactly what it looks like — desolate and dusty. Then came the character names. Names just come to me. When I first began writing, I poured through naming books for just the right thing. But as the years went on, character names would just appear in my mind. I have to laugh at myself coming up with a name like Sam Dash (the hero of Part 2).


Cynthia Sax: How does Welcome To Dust start?

Jane Leopold Quinn: I’ve watched enough western movies and TV shows to have no problem imagining an upscale, fancy saloon bar. The first scene begins with the Emerald Saloon. I could see it in my mind. It appeared to me like in a play with Eve wiping off the bar and lusting over Bran. Then Bran flirts and the story is on!


Cynthia Sax: What causes problems between Eve and Brandon?


Jane Leopold Quinn:
Neither Eve nor Bran know anything about each other’s pasts. Eve is only working in Dust in the saloon until she earns enough money to go back East. She wants to become a school teacher like the ones who taught her. She’s attracted to Bran but holds him off because she certainly doesn’t want to become serious with a man out here in the West. Bran is a federal marshal undercover in Dust to catch train robbers. Eve, gorgeous and gutsy enough to handle the cowboys who come into the saloon, is distracting him from his job and driving him nuts. He wants her and considers her standoffishness a challenge and he wants to win her.


Cynthia Sax: Does someone in Welcome To Dust have a secret? I love secrets!


Jane Leopold Quinn:
Eve is determined to keep her secret especially from Bran. She left her father’s home in the East because of her uncle’s actions. Age and distance makes her feel able to handle the man when she goes back. I’ve mentioned that Bran is an undercover officer.


Cynthia Sax: Is Welcome To Dust a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?


Jane Leopold Quinn:
At this point, the Smokin’ Hot stories are a serial in two parts. Welcome to Dust is Part 1 and ends on a cliffhanger. Part 2, The Emerald Saloon, features the saloon owner Francine and the town sheriff Sam. I have more stories in mind, for example Johnny, the saloon’s piano player.


Cynthia Sax: What advice would you give new writers?


Jane Leopold Quinn:
Never give up, but if for some reason your muse leaves town for a while, don’t despair. The stories are still in you. They’ll come back.


Cynthia Sax: What do you love about writing in your historical western romance?


Jane Leopold Quinn:
The happily ever after is what attracts me to romance. Recently I tried to read a couple of “literary” historical novels and they might have ended happily but things happened, tragedies early in the stories, that turned me off. Real life has some really sucky things going on, and I think romance is the best antidote. I love to write the hope and promise of a happy ending. And read it.

Thank you, Jane Leopold Quinn, for joining us today!

Jane Leopold Quinn’s Website: http://janeleopoldquinn.blogspot.com

*****************************************************************************

Welcome to Dust is the first of an erotic two-part serial and ends with a cliffhanger.

Dust, a town on the edge of nowhere, has a lot going on.

Eve Storm tends bar at the Emerald Saloon and yearns to increase her savings to go home back East. The fly in her ointment is the gorgeous cowboy who comes in all the time.

Brandon Prosper, federal marshal undercover as a simple cowboy, cannot stay away from Eve. She doesn’t have a problem keeping away from him though and thwarts his attempts at seduction at every turn.

Dust, the Emerald Saloon, and its denizens are the centerpieces in this erotic historical western two-part serial about a down and out town, train robbers, female saloon owners and bartenders, and hunky lawmen. Welcome to Dust is just the beginning…

Interview With Angelina J. Windsor

By Cynthia Sax on August 26, 2015

I sat down (virtually) with Angelina J. Windsor for a short interview. Angelina J. Windsor’s latest release is Seventh Son, a Paranormal with werewolves!


Cynthia Sax: What makes Lord Bram Snowdon so freakin’ sexy?

Angelina J. Windsor: Oh Boy! He’s a huge, alpha male who can turn into a werewolf at will! Sexy, hot and passionate is our Lord Snowdon. The first of the Dragonstone Clan, he’s the ultimate tortured soul. Cursed by his wife, he roams the woods feeling too much a monster to deserve to be the liege of his clan. Until that is, one day, he runs into his equal, a mate (Isobelle, my favorite heroine!) who makes it her life’s mission to lead him back to his true calling. Lord Snowdon is cultured and wild, a deadly combination, eh! I can’t but think of him and I get wound up and feeling fine…

Cynthia Sax: What do you find especially exciting about Seventh Son?

Angelina J. Windsor: Oh my, all of it does, you have to have a passion for your stories to stay with them for weeks, if not months, on end. But I would imagine the fact that it is set during the time of the Arthurian Legends, a thousand plus years ago, in the fabled Isle of Albion, drew me the most. Such a time and setting allows for so much passion and excitement. Not to mention the evocative language possible. The story of Bram and Isobelle, two memorable characters I loved working with, is a dark gothic tale with time spent on the windswept moors, like so many of the books I enjoyed growing up. Side note: I loved to read then and I love to read just as much now! Think of Heathcliff and Cathy. Except living in this time and place looking back has many advantages like being able to write about it more explicitly which adds a whole other layer of tension and intensity. If you know what I mean, nudge-nudge wink-wink!!!


Cynthia Sax: What is your favorite line from Seventh Son?

Angelina J. Windsor: That’s an easy one! It’s a scene from my heroine, Isobelle’s journey. I had to let myself fall into what this experience would feel like, the coming back from true unconsciousness. And of course my editor adding a happy face to this line made my day and told me it was all I had hoped it would be. Thanks Rebecca! Here’s the line:
“I came to consciousness slowly, the land of dreams and the land of the living twisted together giving me no purchase to find the opening to my own life, much like a swimmer stuck under the frozen ice with no borehole.”
*This is the kind of ancient language structure I enjoyed creating.


Cynthia Sax: How does Seventh Son start?


Angelina J. Windsor:
Ah, my heroine, Isobelle, is at her wits end having been cast out of hearth and home. She’s desperate to leave the world that has turned its back on her and looks to end it all on a high bridge. As she is about to jump into the cold, rushing waters below where death awaits she is accosted by Bram looking to save her. Her rescue fires her passions for this man who has risked much and she falls into his arms without delay. They rut right there on the bridge, for she has discovered she is gloriously happy to be alive and in the arms of this warm, enticing stranger. She feels little shame for accepting his embraces. But will that be enough for her to become a part of his life as she so desperately wants? Or will the beast inside him drive her away?


Cynthia Sax: What creates problems between Isobelle and Bram?


Angelina J. Windsor:
Again, oh boy! The fact that our heroine is attracted to the female in the story and allows her to be overly familiar if you get what I mean causes all sort of grief! It was my first f/f scene and my editor agreed it was scorching hot. I think I’d better have a cold shower.

Okay, I’m back. Yes, conflict drives stories. And Isobelle’s betrayal has dire consequences. She has much to atone for in proving her love for Bram and she suffers greatly.

Thank you, Angelina J. Windsor, for joining us today!

Angelina J. Windsor’s Website: http://www.angelinajwindsor.com/

*****************************************************************************

An ancient curse. A darkly handsome lord. A desperate woman.

Hungry and homeless, Isobelle refuses to sell her only possession, her body. When she is finally driven to end her suffering, Lord Bram Snowdon rescues her.

Bram lives under a curse, one that’s driven him to become a creature in hiding, knowing every full moon will turn him into a monster.

Bram and Isobelle both have demons to fight, and their struggles soon turn to lust…and love. But destiny awaits them: they are fated to help the Dragonstone clan reclaim its birthright. This mission puts Isobelle’s life in peril and worse, puts Bram’s trust in her at risk.

Morganas, daughter of the Merlin, mage of Dragonstone and Avalon, offers to be a source of the purest help to Isobelle but also becomes her darkest temptation.

Inside Scoop: This story contains a scorching-hot f/f scene.

Billionaires And The Walk Of Shame

By Cynthia Sax on August 25, 2015

Walks of shame—many of us have done them, including the rich and the famous.

According to Wikipedia, a walk of shame “refers to a situation in which a person must walk past strangers or peers alone for an embarrassing reason before reaching a place of privacy. It often occurs the morning after a night out at a bar, nightclub, or party. People undertaking the walk of shame are understood to have spent the night at the residence of a sexual partner (or perceived sexual partner), particularly a one-night stand. The topic is often the subject of college newspaper commentary. The “walker” may often be identified by his or her disheveled appearance and incongruous evening attire, particularly on Saturday or Sunday mornings.”

Walks of shame are challenging to keep private, especially if you’re a high profile person such as a billionaire. In One Night With My Billionaire Master, Arianna wants to keep her one night with sexy billionaire, Logan Ross, a secret.

The problem is… His house is watched by the media. His every move is gossiped about.

So what does he do?

He buys a brand new taxi. The taxi passes through his gates into his private grounds. Arianna climbs into the back seat and hides, ducking down so no one can see her. The taxi leaves, appearing as though it has no passengers. No one follows an empty taxi. Arianna arrives home undetected.

Of course, she isn’t wearing last night’s clothing or looking disheveled either. Logan has a beautiful outfit for her to wear and all of the necessities a woman could want. He’s a classy, considerate man, our Logan Ross, which is one of the many reasons Arianna falls in love with him.

Have you ever done a walk of shame? Were you spotted?

One night. No one must know.

This is the text I sent Logan Ross this morning. The billionaire financier is my father’s number one nemesis and has been pursuing me for months. He wants to own me, completely, promising exquisite pleasure balanced by equally intense pain, vowing to dominate me, to show me wicked things a virgin like myself shouldn’t be interested in.

But I am extremely interested, and I’ll risk everything—my job, my family, my future—to experience one night of total submission with this powerful Dom.

Will one night be enough for both of us?

Releasing Rage and Writing What We Want

By Cynthia Sax on August 25, 2015

I’m at Decadent Divas today, talking about cyborgs and writing what we want!

Here is a snippet…

“My advice to all writers is to write what you’re passionate about and not worry as much about what publishers want.

My advice to all readers is if a writer is super enthusiastic about one of her stories, there’s usually a reason why. That story is worth investigating.”

Half Man. Half Machine. All Hers.

Rage, the Humanoid Alliance’s most primitive cyborg, has two goals—kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that’s all he’s been programmed to experience.
Until he meets Joan.

Joan, the battle station’s first female engineer, has one goal—survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.

When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage’s priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg’s heart for both love and revenge?
