With the return of Clara’s father, Matthew must make a decision to protect her. Her father is intent on using her to settle all of his debts. Matthew will not let his woman be used as a pawn.

Once her father is out of the picture, Clara wants to give Matthew everything he desires but she’s afraid of what he wants. After a party showing her exactly what he wants from her, Clara needs to make a choice. She can either give herself over to him to become his sub or leave.

Excerpt

 The sight that greeted him when he opened the bedroom door filled him with yearning. Clara lay with his pillow clutched in her hands. Her eyes were closed. The white negligee she wore covered her curves beautifully. He’d prefer to see her naked.

Matthew undressed then moved to climb in the bed. He snuggled up behind her.

She whimpered, turned over to snuggle against him. Her eyes opened.

The moment she saw him, she smiled. “You’re back.”

He brushed the curls off her face and smiled down at her.

“I’m back. I’m not going anywhere.”

Clara pulled him down for a kiss. “I missed you.”

Taking her lips with his, Matthew showed her with his kiss how much he’d missed her. Her moans echoed off the walls as he glided his palm up her thigh. Her soft skin felt damn good against him.

“What happened?” she asked when she broke away.

“He’s not going to bother you anymore.”

She nibbled her lip.

“Ask me,” he said.

“I don’t want to know. I’m tired of being worried about him or not knowing if I’ll be able to afford his debts. I’m done with him.” He heard the sadness in her voice. He wished there was more he could say to make her feel better but there wasn’t.

“I love you, baby,” he said.

She gasped. “I love you too.”

The Taking of Clara Book 2

TheTakingofClara2_MED

Matthew has settled all of Clara’s debts and all of them are because of her gambling father. He will do everything in his power to keep her safe even if that means taming his basic nature of being a Dominant.

Clara can’t believe Matthew paid for her. She saw the contract and she’s so shocked that she doesn’t know if Matthew loves her or feels like she’s his property.

But Matthew has more to share with her. He needs to possess her and make her his. There is nothing Matthew would love more than to see Clara with his collar wrapped around her neck. However, Clara is no longer safe when her father comes to call.

Now Available: The Taking of Clara

The Taking of Clara

TheTakingofClara_LRG

Clara is in desperate need of money. When an ad catches her in the local newspaper for a physical companion, she has no choice but to answer. She never expected the man responsible for the ad to be her boss but she has no choice.

Matthew Johnson has watched Clara for some time. He sees the submissive inside her and wants her for himself.

She has two choices; walk away and risk the debts crashing around her or become his mistress for him to control.

Excerpt

 “The advert holds a lot of restraint. The newspaper required a quick, simple but brief description. Don’t mistake me, Clara. I will fuck you.” He caught her attention. She stared at him. The shock on her face evident in the way her lips parted. There were other signs. He saw the budding of her nipples. The unmistakable dilation of her eyes showing her arousal. He noted the flush of her cheeks as well. Each were a sign he recognized for her arousal.

    He knew she’d be wet. Her body responded to him in ways she didn’t understand. Her body knew what he wanted more than her mind. In time she’d understand what he wanted completely. Until then, he’d find great pleasure in teaching her what he desired. He’d spend all the time with her to show her how great they’d be together.
    “Are you a virgin?” he asked.
    “Why do you need to know?”
    “You’ve entered into an agreement with me, Clara. I want to know everything about you including who you fucked.”
    She gazed round the café for several moments before shaking her head. “I’m not a virgin.”
    “I want the date of your last sexual encounter?”
    “The night I lost my virginity at eighteen.” Her response came quick without hesitation. He reached over the table to grasp her hand. She went to pull away but he stopped her by holding onto her hand tighter. “Let go.”
                “No.” Her resistance lasted a few seconds before she went limp in his hand. “Why haven’t you had any another sexual experience?”
    “After the first bad experience, I never wanted to relive another,” she said. Her attitude came up like a force field that protected her. Clara hadn’t experienced much pleasure in her short life. He couldn’t wait to get her to submit to him completely.     “Yet, you apply for a job where you’re expected to fuck at will?”
    “I need the money. This is the easiest way for me to get it.”
    Matthew smiled. “I’ll make that first time become nothing more than a bitter memory.”
    “How do you know?” she asked.
    “Because I know what I’m capable of. I’ll have you screaming and begging for my cock before the end of the day.”
    She licked her lips. Her breathing changed as he caressed her. The pulse in her wrist pounded against his fingers. His touch affected Clara deeply. He knew his effect on her and intended to exploit it. The way he felt for her had taken him by surprise but he wouldn’t stop until he possessed her.
    “You want me, Clara.”
    “I know,” she whispered. The fight left her as she submitted to him.
    “Tonight, after work, I want you to come to me in my office. We’ll spend some time together. If you don’t want to be my companion by then, you’ll walk away with some cash for your troubles. There will be no hard feelings. You’ll keep your job as well.” He wouldn’t let her walk away. This opportunity he provided gave him time to tease her. Matthew intended to tempt her with the true pleasure of the flesh. The more she thought about him, the more she would want him. He guaranteed she’d be as addicted to him as he felt towards her
    “Will you do that?” he asked her. She nodded her head. They finished lunch together in silence. He escorted her back to the building.

Guest: Jennifer Simpkins

1) Tell us about yourself.

Jennifer SimpkinsOkay, let’s see…I live in Tennessee with my husband of almost ten years, my six year old daughter, and our two dogs. For the past six years I’ve been a stay-at-home mom. It’s by no means perfect, and a far cry from glamorous, but my life is pretty great at the moment.

In the spring and summer…and most of the time up until the fall, my life revolves around softball and baseball. If I’m not running the kiddo to her softball practices and games, and I’m not writing, I’m most likely catching a New York Yankees game on television. We’re passionate when it comes to the sport.

You can find her here: Website / Facebook / Twitter / Goodreads

2) What genre do you write and why?

I write contemporary romance that are heartfelt with a little bit of spice sprinkled in. I take it as a challenge to be able to take everyday life and come up with fresh twists to put on it. I especially love small town romances—which is how the Patience Series came about.
3) What made you become a writer?

Like a lot of writers I can say, I can’t remember a time I didn’t want to do this. Writing was my first love, but after I got married my dream changed to desperately wanting a family. In fact, I wanted a house full of kids. We’ll save why I only have one kid for another time. Let’s just say an excessive amount of all-night crying has a lot to do with it. But I do consider myself truly blessed to have been able to be home with my daughter. Like most jobs though, it was not always rainbows and butterflies. I mean come on; there was only so much Nick Jr. I could handle. That’s when my first love came back into play. At my niece’s urging I started writing again…and I loved it. After writing my first chapter—which ended up being part of chapter nine in Forgiving Patience—I was hooked. That was three years ago. Earlier this month Forgiving Patience was released with Secret Cravings Publishing.

4) Tell us about your recent book or series.

Forgiving Patience is book 1 in my Patience Series. Book 2 will be released in March of this year.

ForgivingPatience_LRG

Patience is a small town in Tennessee. If you were to visit you would be welcomed with some special people who go to bat for those they care most about…and of course there’s always the chance you could find yourself wrapped up in a sizzling-hot romance.

Everyone there has some type of story, and I’m excited to share them.
In Forgiving Patience you will be introduced to Anna Kelly and Jake Lawrence. Here is a blurb:

Anna Kelly had no intention of returning to her hometown of Patience, Tennessee. At eighteen, feeling powerless from an abusive childhood and heartbroken from her high school sweetheart, she needed to put distance between her and the small town. Now, eleven years later she’s invited to her best friend’s wedding and has no other choice but to return. Though she feels much stronger the second time around, nothing can prepare her for when she sees her ex again.

After a baseball injury, Jake limped back into Patience, damaged and angry. Throwing himself into remodeling Anna’s childhood home has given him purpose again. He is just getting his life back together. He can’t risk sending it all back to hell again, but the woman who broke his heart has whipped back into town…and she wants her house back. In hopes of reminding Anna of what she ran away from all those years ago he makes her an offer she can’t refuse—three dates, that have Anna rethinking Patience…and the life she was supposed to have with Jake.

5) What have you found to be the most challenging?

Lately, what I have found to be a struggle is managing my time. But of course, I probably wouldn’t have this problem if I stayed off Facebook. Another thing is I tend to write better at night. It’s crazy, I know. I have all day free, yet I can’t seem to get anything done until ten o’ clock at night.
A Few fun questions.

Does size matter?

Ummm….of course. *blushes*

Christian Grey or Gideon Cross?

Sorry, I can’t say, because I haven’t read either series.

Flowers or Chocolate?

Chocolate is the answer to everything, isn’t it?

E-book or paperback?

I’ve just recently gotten on board with reading off of an e-reader. I know, I know, I’m late to the game. For me there is just something about holding a book in my hands. When I’m having a slow writing day I will go and pick one out a book I’ve already read, open it up to a random page, and start just start reading. I find this to be very relaxing. It’s just not the same on an e-reader. I will always pick a paperback over an e-book.
