The Collar - Release Blitz





Tara Sue Me

THE COLLAR

Releasing: July 7th, 2015


Blurb:


The New York Times bestselling author of The Submissive returns with a scintillating new tale about power, danger, and jaw-dropping passion....



Nathaniel and Abby are struggling to navigate the challenging waters of their own relationship, when they get a surprising phone call from their partners in play, Dena and Jeff, who are in need of a helping hand…


Seven years ago, blonde, beautiful lawyer Dena Jenkins was tired of her carefully controlled life. Desperate for something exhilarating to help her escape the pressures of her demanding job and her senator father, she joined a steamy, local BDSM club as a submissive. There she met brooding Dominant, Jeff. The attraction between them was undeniable, and, despite Dena’s doubts, they couldn’t stay away from each other.

Except, as the years have passed, their blazing connection has proven difficult to maintain. Dena and Jeff have a history they’d rather forget, but Dena can’t let go of the past, and Jeff is ready to move across the country to give her space. Now, to save their passion, they’ll have to rediscover what it means to trust each other—and give themselves to each other completely…

Excerpt:
Chapter One

Present day

Jeff Parks knew it was taking all of Dena’s willpower not to look his way. And since he had once had that willpower bend to his command, he was well aware of the strength involved. On any other given night, he’d be using his own willpower not to stare, but in light of his recent decision—

“Have you been listening to anything I’ve said in the last five minutes?” his friend and fellow Dom, Daniel, asked.

Jeff looked back to the man standing at his side. It was late on a Thursday night and their local BDSM group meeting had just ended. No one was in a hurry to leave though. Everyone wanted to stay around and talk with Nathaniel and Abby. At the moment, Nathaniel stood beside Daniel, grinning. The guest Dominant had led a discussion about keeping D/s relationships from getting stale. Considering the two scenes Jeff had participated in a few months ago with the married couple, staleness wasn’t an issue between Nathaniel and Abby.

“Sorry. What?” Jeff asked Daniel.

“Nothing important. Just going over plans for the play party tomorrow night.”
“Your house at ten.”

“At least you remember that part,” Daniel said in his not-quite-teasing voice.

“I’ve got a lot on my mind.” He might as well go ahead and tell Daniel everything. He’d find out  eventually  and the two of them had been friends for long enough that he deserved to hear the news from Jeff himself. “I’m moving.”
“You’re what?” Daniel asked in shock.

“Why?” Nathaniel asked at the same time.

Jeff’s gaze automatically found Dena again. She was talking with Abby and Julie. Daniel’s submissive must have said something funny, because Dena snorted with laughter, shaking her head. Her long blond hair swayed with the movement.

“Ah,” Daniel said.


“It’s not what you think.”

5 Quick Questions with the Author


Tell us your latest news?
Latest news is the release of my new book, THE COLLAR. Its a sexy and steamy second chance BDSM romance. The two main characters were first introduced in SEDUCED BY FIRE. They had a scene together that was so intense, I actually had to redo it because I was afraid theyd take over the whole book!

If you could have a dinner party with any authors from any time in history, who would you choose and why?
Hmmmm, tough question. So many people to decide from. Id probably go with Stephen King, because I loved his book ON WRITING and Id really like to pick his brain a bit. Plus, I have this dream of co writing an erotic thriller with someone.

What books or authors have influenced your writing?
I think as authors everything we read touches our writing in some way. I read a variety of fiction from all sorts of authors, itd be hard to pinpoint just one.

Is there an Author that you would really like to meet?
I love Diana Galbaldons Outlander series. Plus her books are so meticulously researched. Id love to have a conversation with her on plotting.  How much does she know advance, that sort of thing.

Tell us a little about your background. When did you start writing?
I started young, around 12. I wrote my first novel by hand.  It was hideous. Its lost and I hope it stays that way! I didnt much writing after that until I was in my mid-thirties. I wrote several sweet romances (where the bedroom door was firmly closed) before trying my hand at erotic romance.

And I actually worked as a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry before I started writing full time.
