Music Monday- What You Crave

This Monday, let’s welcome Landra Graf with her new book, What You Crave!

29222376

Dangerous by David Guetta ft. Sam Martin – This song sparked the initial ideas for the main characters in my latest release. As I listened I couldn’t get the thought of a sleek black Porsche, leather interior, and a woman in a black dress.

Bad by David Guetta ft. Vassy – Lauren, my heroine, is a good girl by nature. She doesn’t do anything crazy, until signing up for a 1NS. Meeting Sig and submitting to him is also something on her naughty list.

Damaged by Danity Kane – Both Lauren and Sig are damaged by their past relationships and so this song resonated with me to those parts of them and helped when developing the conflicts they faced.

Under Control by Calvin Harris ft. Alesso, Hurts – All those bondage scenes needed some inspirational help, and towards the end of the story things got super-heated, physically and emotionally.

I Want It All by Karmin – Every 1NS is typically just that, one night. This song plays up to the emotions riding high in my characters. As the story develops and the H/h become closer the question is will 1 night be enough?

What’s your next project on the horizon? What You Crave is the first in the Desperately Seeking Submissive series. The second on, What You Want, is coming in March and features one of the characters from this story.

I’m always wandering Facebook via Landra Graf. My website is another way to check out my books and what I’m up to. If you want the latest news I highly suggest signing up for my newsletter, which I share with the awesome Catherine Peace.

What You Crave

Sigmund Bermudez has spent the last year out of the BDSM scene, mourning the death of his father and rebuilding the family business. When he loses a bet to his bodyguard that Madame Eve won’t locate a woman who’s down with his type of kink, he finds himself committed to a date he’s not sure he’ll enjoy.

Lauren Elser has heard about kinky escapades from one of her more challenging patients, and never taken in part in one. When offered a chance to explore this undiscovered side of herself courtesy of 1Night Stand, she jumps at it.

Neither of them is prepared for the emotional rollercoaster that comes with their date, and soon shibari bondage play turns into so much more. The only problem, is Sig’s not ready to open up and Lauren doesn’t want to be sued again. But if they work past the issues, there’s a world of wonder in store.

Meet the Writer Wednesday: Lilac James

Writer Wednesday, that time of week to connect readers to the authors penning your favorite stories!

Today let’s welcome Lilac James!

Lilac JamesWhat’s your favorite quote about writing?

“What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.” (Samuel Johnson) And Lord knows, I’m all about pleasure.

What inspires you to write?

Being able to spend time enjoying all the naughty ideas and luscious men I think up.

Out of all the characters you’ve written, do you have a favorite, or one you feel like you could write about forever? Why?

Hmmm. Well, Bex is a contender, which is only fair since she keeps popping up at different sex clubs. Now that she has her own TV program at KINK-TV, she visits the clubs to see what’s goin’on. And I’ve grown very fond of Sex Ed. But really, a new man is such a treat. How can I resist?

Where would your dream vacation be, and why?

A deserted tropical beach with no dinosaurs or crazed killers/stalkers/kidnappers/terrorists, but with a selection of really, really hot guys—Special Forces, maybe?—to play with. Why? Why not?

Ha, I love that response! What project are you most excited for right now?

The next book, working title The Devil’s a Dom. At the Devil’s Den, Satan and Hecate may be doing things Bex can’t put on TV! (Work in progress)

What’s your favorite TV show on air?

Hmmm. I’m more a doer than a watcher, but…well, True Blood, maybe.

What books are you currently reading? Any recommendations?

In the Zone by Sierra Cartwright; Fool’s Gold by Jennifer Skully. They’re booth pretty darned good writers. I don’t think you can go wrong with either one. And if I can find ESPN’s 2015 Body Issue—whooeee!

What’s your astrological sign?

Aries, a fire sign of course. Aries people are adventurous and outgoing. Of course. And dedicated to pursuing the thrill of the moment. Of course!

Us Aries do tend to dive into adventure. What’s your biggest pet peeve when reading a book? A certain type of character? A style of writing? Noticeable plotholes?

Pet peeve? Books about people who are so squeaky-clean, prim, and proper that they don’t have sex. Everyone who’s anyone knows that’s one of the best things in the world. But I also dislike books that have sex without any kind of relationship—one night stand, long-term marriage, I don’t care. I just want the people to have some bond as well as bondage.

Where can readers find you and your books?

I hang out at http://www.LilacJamesAuthor.WordPress.com, and can be reached at lilacjamesauthor@gmail.com.

My books are available at Loose-Id.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google Play, etc.

Lilac James has always been a day dreamer, and the scenarios usually feature really hot men.  She is unusually lucky in having untold numbers of gorgeous men to populate her days, and the world’s most wonderful husband when she’s not at the keyboard thinking up new stories.  No, she doesn’t write while wearing a Vicky’s Secret nightgown and sipping a glass of wine.  She enjoys herself anyway.

She’s tired of being a good girl. He’s the man who can help.

Bessie stepped out of the shower and stood in front of her bathroom mirror, rehearsing her approach to Milady’s Pleasure. “I’ve never seen a naked man before.”
No, that wouldn’t do.
“Show me a penis.” Ugh. She sounded—not even dominatrix-like. More desperate, and she’d do anything to keep her desperation from showing.
“Tonight I want…” Yes. Simple, direct, clear.
Tonight, she’d start.
