*Blog Tour Giveaway & Author Interview* His Forbidden Submissive by Brandi Evans *Goddess Fish Tour*

Ladies & Gentlemen, let’s put together a warm welcome for a Smoking Hot Author….

Ms Brandi Evans

To find happiness, she must do something she swore she’d never do again.

Let a man control her.

After beating cancer, Vivian goes on a mission to cleanse her life. First on the list, kicking her cheating, controlling husband to the curb. Second, discovering the answer to a question that’s been haunting her. Is the love she harbors for Brock, her bad-boy brother-in-law, genuine or a chemotherapy-induced illusion?

Brock loves a woman he can’t have. His brother’s wife. To claim her would be a betrayal. He knows loving her is wrong but he can’t help it. So when circumstances bring them back together, he can no longer deny his forbidden attraction, and they unite in a fury of passion, lust—and bondage.

But Vivian isn’t prepared for Brock’s BDSM lifestyle, no matter how sexy he looks with his tats and leathers. After ten years with a controlling husband, submission is terrifying—but so is never being with Brock again. Submission or freedom? No matter which she chooses, her life will change forever.

Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself…. Something that we cannot Google about you, lol!
Since you are a new to me author, I am hoping to bring you to the light of others! So share away!

Something you can’t Google? Hmm. So I guess that means telling you about my Starbucks addition or the fact I have 2 kidlets or that I’m a member of the National Guard is out, LOL. So what’s left? Hmm… Well, as my bio says, I’m a stay-at-home mom but it leaves off the important fact that I’m the world’s worst housekeeper, LOL. Well, maybe not the worst but keeping up with the fam is a constant struggle for me.  Also, I really enjoy Sci-Fi. I was brought up on reruns of Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. I’m extremely introverted, almost painfully so, LOL. Oh, and one last thing. I have a toy box hidden in my house that isn’t for the kidlets, LOL.

Oh gosh, you have me giggling! 😉 Tell us a little about your book?

His Forbidden Submissive is the story of Vivian Michaels, a woman who’s been beaten up by life. She’s married to an emotionally abusive husband, a cancer victim—and survivor—but now she’s ready to take her life back. She starts by divorcing her prick of a hubby and going after the man she fell in love with while she battled cancer. Her brother-in-law, Brock. Brock has been in love with Viv for years, but a complicated loyalty to his brother kept him from acting on his feelings. Well, that is until Viv shows up at his place with an offer he can’t resist…
How much emotion does it take from you to write?

Depends on the type and length of the book. His Forbidden Submissive really took a lot out of me emotionally and physically. I had to rest my writing muscles for almost 2 weeks after finishing the story.
What is your favorite part of the book?

Of His Forbidden Submissive? Easy. The first time Brock gives true aftercare to Viv. It makes me tear up every time I read it. It’s such a sweet interlude, especially coming on the heels of all the play they’ve been doing.
You can only pick 3 words for your main characters..what would they be? *to describe your main characters*

Sexy. Steamy. Sensual.
Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why??

In many ways, Brock was the easiest character to write. His BDSM side was difficult, of course, but as a man…mmm, he was fun to write. I fell in love with him more and more with every page and every scene.
How many books are you shooting for in this series??

Right now, I’ve got four stories planned, but that could always change.
What are you currently working on?

I just contracted a new story for the Ellora’s Cave for Men line. It’s a smutty Quickie called Game Night. Aside from that, I’m also working on the next book in the Restrained Fantasies series as well as a story for a multi-author series.
Do you have anything due to release soon?

Not that I know of. As I just mentioned, I’ve recently contracted a new story, but there’s no release date set.
What’s one thing that you enjoy about writing?

The solitude. I’m a solitary person by nature, so getting alone time with the characters living inside my head, is a wonderful feeling. 😉
Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of your cover?

I squealed like a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert. True story, LOL.
What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?

Ebooks, especially on my Kindle. I love that it reads to me when my eyes get so tired all the words go blurry.
Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?

It was BDSM. The idea for His Forbidden Submissive was rolling around in my head for a while, but actually getting the courage to go the BDSM route took a lot of convincing, courage—and research.
Okay…. personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there… Haha…If you thought you were safe… Nah… Forgot it… Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!

What is on your night stand/dresser?  iPhone charger, my Kindle, bamboo plant, and room spray (lavender vanilla).
What are you listening to you right now? Kiwi by Maroon 5.
What are you reading right now? Just finished Main Street Vegan. Not sure what I’m going to read next.
What is your favorite season? Holiday? Favorite season…autumn. Not too hot, not too cold, and not too many bugs. *grin* Fave Holiday…too hard to pick!
And what has been your best b-day present ever?? When my hubs bought me my 1st personalized computer.

Hard and Quick Time! Don’t think… Just answer! Okay, before we go this route, I will get us a refill on our drinks… I will be right back…

Are you a quickie kind girl? Depends on my mood, LOL, but yeah, I’m all for it when the mood hits.
Dark or Milk Chocolate? Dark.
Whipped or Melted? Whipped.
Straight up or with a twist – sex? Again, it depends on my mood.
What’s ur fave drink – in a glass or on him? Skinny cinnamon dulche lattes from Starbucks.
Spank or Flogger? Um, flogger I guess, LOL.
Junk or Health Food? Health.
Ties or Chains? Ties.
Leather or Lace? Leather.
Soft or Hard… Bed, where was your mind? Hard. In a dungeon with Brock at his club, LOL. I have a bit of a crush on him.

**Who wouldn’t….**

Control or Be Controlled? Both.
Hot Wax or Whip Cream? Whip cream.
Vampire or Werewolf? Werewolf.
Twitter and/or Facebook? Twitter!
Pinterest or not? Love, love, love Pinterest!

Thanks for playing along!!!

Let’s have a tease of what you could have….. If you wanted….
He spun toward Viv’s voice. She still wore the same dress she had when she’d first walked back into his life, but now, her appearance had a different allure to it. She no longer looked sleek and stylish—she looked used and owned. Barefoot, her dress showing off wrinkles from being in a pile on the floor, her hair a wild mess from his hands, his bed, his pillows, she looked like a woman who had been well, well-loved. It’d be a hard-on-inducing sight if it wasn’t for the uncertainty scrunching her beautiful face.
He wanted to yank her into his arms and kiss her until that uncertainty evaporated. Wanted to throw her into his bed and stroke deep into her sweet body until she couldn’t think of anything else, but only once he came clean. He owed her nothing less.
“Yeah, I’m good.” He turned back to the desserts. Maybe after a sugar rush he’d be able to come up with the right words. “I was just wondering if I wanted to add some syrup to our ice cream. What do you think?”
She didn’t answer, but he knew she was still there. He’d heard no footsteps, nothing to indicate she’d moved in the slightest. “I think you need to tell me the truth. Why do you really want to slow things down? And don’t you dare think about lying to me.”
Christ. He wasn’t fucking ready for this conversation. He was still formulating his strategy. “Well, considering your upcoming divorce and the fact the man you’re leaving is my older brother, I just think it would be best—”
“Bullshit.” In a flash, she crossed the room then yanked on the sleeve of his t-shirt until they stood face-to-face. “You and I are fantastic together. You can’t honestly tell me you really want to pull the brakes on what we had…what we could have.”
No, he didn’t want to slow things down. “It’s…complicated, Viv,” he finally said.
“Then uncomplicate it.”
“It’s not that simple.”
“Bull. Shit.” She stepped into him until they were toe-to-toe.
The soft aroma of vanilla and sex teased his senses, and despite his good intentions, lust rocketed straight to his groin. His cock lengthened, hardened in a matter of nanoseconds. His hands fisted at his side and it took all his strength to keep from grabbing her and throwing her down on the kitchen table and pushing deep into her pussy until he created enough heat to bind reality and fantasy together.
Viv continued, whispering a line that threatened to completely and utterly do him in. “I’m gonna get the truth out of you, Brock, even if I have to chain myself to your side.”
“That’s a dangerous thing to say around me, sweetheart.”
