GENEVIEVE FOSTER can no longer deny the truth. She’s fallen in love with her business partner and best friend, LIAM ENGLAND. She’s hesitant to tell him the truth, at least until she learns his National Guard unit is going back to the Middle East. Now, all bets are off. She heads to the mall for the perfect erotic outfit. And by outfit, she, of course, means lingerie. A dark blue baby-doll for an intimate evening in or a leather bustier for a night of sinful pleasures at The Erogenous Zone…

Tell us a little about your book?
A Soldier’s Seduction is a CYOA erotic romance about a woman who realizes she’s in love with her best friend, a man who’s about to ship off to Afghanistan. She decides she doesn’t want him to deploy not knowing how much she loves him, but she isn’t sure how she wants to go about telling him.
Take him to the erotic club he’s been dying to go to or prepare an intimate dinner at her place. The best part…the reader gets to choose.
How much emotion does it take from you to write?
A lot. J
When I finish a first draft, I’m always emotionally and physically drained. I usually have to take a day off and sleep, LOL. It’s a lot like giving birth, only not nearly as painful.
What is your favorite part of the book?
Hmmm, that’s hard, especially with four possible endings!
But if I have to choose, I’d pick the end of the “bedroom” scene, where the hero *spoilers* (and if you read that in River Song’s voice, we’re now best friends, LOL!) confesses his love, and the heroine just can’t quite believe it. She stares up at him in disbelief…
Love it. 🙂
You can only pick 3 words to describe your main characters..what would they be?
Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?
A Soldier’s Seduction is in first person, so writing the heroine was easy. There is a lot of me in her, only I probably wouldn’t have been gutsy enough to take the man I love to a sex club to seduce him.
One point to Gen!
As for the hardest to write, there really wasn’t one in this story, as there were only the two main characters.
How many books are you shooting for in this series?
As many as my muse—and the publisher—will allow!
I’m already in self edits for my 2nd journey back to The Erogenous Zone. You know Gen’s friend from the first scene…she’s the heroine for book 2.
What are you currently working on?
As I just mentioned, I’m finishing up self-edits on another Silk Words CYOA story. I also just finished final edits on a military-themed m/m erotic romance which will release in early October from Loose Id. After that, I’ve got to do self-edits on another military-themed romance, this one about an Army hero who lost part of his leg after an IED explosion.
So much to do, so little time!
Do you have anything due to release soon?
The story is called In the Middle of Nowhere. It’s the story of two former lovers, Dean and Tyler, who meet again five years after their breakup, although breakup is probably too strong of a word, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell “forced” them apart.
The story killed me emotionally. One of the hero’s backstory is so terrible I hated myself for making him live through it. There’s a nightmare scene where he relives a bit of the abuse his homophobic father inflicted on him, and every time I read it, it makes me shiver.
What’s one thing that you enjoy about writing?
The rush of creativity, of simply being able to create. There’s something very freeing about immersing myself in the world’s I create. I put the real world and its insanity out of my head and just get lost.
Also, writing the stories down means that the characters will stop chattering away inside my head and driving me nuts. That’s always a plus, LOL.
Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of your cover?
I absolutely LOVED it! The hero’s abs…god, I so wanted to lick them. But I thought the people at Starbucks might look at me funny if I did. J
What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?
Ebooks almost exclusively.
With my lap occupied by Kidlet2 so much of the time, one-handed reading is just easier. Plus, now that Amazon has merged their Audible app with their Kindle app, I can listen to the stories or read them without losing my place in either. I can’t begin to tell you how much I love that.
Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?
Yes, science fiction.
I am a HUGE science fiction fan. I am so obsessed with Doctor Who it’s a little scary, but delving into science fiction scares me a little.
While I think I’d be good with a fiction half of the equation, it’s the whole science part that gives me pause. So much world building is involved, and I’m terrified of creating a species that’s such a genetic dead-end they never should have been able to survive.
Okay…. personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there… Hahah…
If you thought you were safe… Nah… Forgot it… Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!
Okay. *cracks knuckles* Let’s do this.
What is on your night stand/dresser?
Books! What else. 😉
(Okay, also my phone charger and a lamp.)
What are you listening to you right now?
Absolutely nothing! The kids are asleep and I’m thoroughly enjoying the silence, LOL.
What are you reading right now?
At the moment, I’m between books. *sigh* I told myself I have to get my 2nd Camo & Lace story back to my editor before I could read anything else.
What is your favorite season? Holiday?
Fall. Not too hot, not too cold, and not as many mosquitoes.
Favorite holiday is Halloween.
And what has been your best b-day present ever?
What, no, passing? Okay, hmmm…
Well, it wasn’t a birthday present, but for Christmas last year, my girls got me these really cute Sci-Fi coffee mugs. One was Darth Vader’s helmet and the other a ray gun. I soooo love them!
Hard and Quick Time! Don’t think… Just answer!
Are you a quickie kind girl? Depends on what kind of mood I’m in.
Dark or Milk Chocolate? Dark, definitely. (I like dark meat too, just FYI. *wink, wink*)
Whipped or Melted? Melted!
Straight up or with a twist – sex? With a twist, definitely!
What’s ur fave drink – in a glass or on him? Coffee—in a mug. On him might be a little dangerous.
Spank or Flogger? Flogger (lightly).
Junk or Health Food? Yes.
Ties or Chains? Ties.
Leather or Lace? Leather. More form fitting.
Soft or Hard… Bed, where was your mind? Soft on top but hard beneath. J
Control or Be Controlled? Controlled.
Hot Wax or Whip Cream? Whip cream.
Vampire or Werewolf? Werewolf. I’m cold enough as it is anyway. I’d prefer the extra body heat.
Twitter and/or Facebook? Twitter. I’m too ADD for Facebook.
Pinterest or not? Definitely yes! (brandievans1)
“Maybe,” I teased, praying my nervousness didn’t leak through.
Taking Liam by the hands, I tugged him from the passenger’s seat of my Ford Escape. I’d given my handsome companion only one clue about tonight’s adventure — to wear something sexy — and damn if Liam hadn’t delivered.
A pair of black sheen slacks covered his legs, and the light blue button-down I’d given him on his last birthday had beautifully brought out the azure of his eyes. I’d hated to cover them with the blindfold, but it couldn’t be helped.
He’d shaved and cut his hair, his blond locks sporting an Army crew cut, making him look strong, virile, a vision of alpha-tastic yumminess. He’d no doubt fit right in inside The Erogenous Zone. Lord knew he was doing a number on my erogenous zones.
My heart had been doing the samba since I’d knocked on Liam’s door. I’d had to employ every self-restraint trick I’d known — as well as several I’d invented on the fly — just to keep from jumping him right then and there. I’d put a lot of planning into our erotic outing, and I didn’t want to derail everything because I couldn’t control myself.
Liam had talked about coming to The Erogenous Zone since the club had opened, but reservations were few and far between. He’d asked me to come with him. I’d been thrilled until I’d learned his request probably had more to do with the fact couples had less of a waiting list than single males. Still, I liked to believe Liam had wanted to go with me because he wanted me at his side.
“There’s a step here,” I said as we left the shadows of the parking lot behind and moved into the soft glow of the club’s outside lighting. Liam held tight to me as we stepped over the curb and onto the path leading to the entrance. The club loomed large and imposing in front of us, an enormous brick building with graffiti spray-painted on the sides. According to the website, the place had been an abandoned warehouse before the owner had repurposed it, and from where we stood, an abandoned warehouse was exactly what it still looked like.
As we reached the entrance, a man the size of a small mountain approached us. He wore all black, save for a tiny splash of color on the right pocket. Written in multi-hued lettering, the club’s logo stood out against the dark background. Two full sleeves of tattoos covered his arms. Metal studs pierced his eyebrows, his nose, his lips — all in multiple places.
“Do you have a reservation?” The bouncer’s voice reverberated, a deep, gravelly resonance I swore I could feel inside my bones.
I swallowed hard, hoping to displace the unease suddenly bottlenecking in my throat. “Yes. For Genevieve Foster. Plus one.”
Muscles glanced at his clipboard and then opened the door. “This way, Ms. Foster. If you’ll see Rachel at the front desk, she’ll get you checked in.”
I nodded. The reality of the moment bitch-slapped me. I was about to take my best guy friend into a sex club so I could seduce him. Our entire relationship hinged on what would happen in the next few moments. I could finally have the man I loved in my arms, or I could lose a dear friend forever.
Things hadn’t seemed this real in the planning phase.
