I have the pleasure of roasting - I mean hosting - erotic romance author Maddie Taylor today. She's in The Hot Seat to spill all her naughty secrets and share a bit about her latest best-selling novel Lanie's Lessons.
Kallista: Maddie, I like to start out with forcing you to confess just one of what I'm sure is a long list of kinky things you do when you're not writing hot sex scenes.
Maddie: (Looking uncomfortable) Um… We have a toy chest. You will find I use items other than spanking implements quite often in my contemporary stories. I’ll let you wonder which ones I have tested out personally. Enough said…
Kallista: Hmmm. (Pulls out notebook) As a professional interviewer, I'm going to need details. Are you actually writing while you're testing them out? Is that why your books are so hot? Also, you''ll have to provide the buy links for your favorites when we're finished - purely for my research purposes. Now - on to the next shameful revelation. If you could run away with one of your male heroes, which one would it be? And why him?
Maddie: I fall in love with all of my heroes, but I have to say my heart belongs to Tony Rossi from Captain My Captain. Although he can be very intense and quite strict, he is also very loving, protective of his woman, kicks ass first and asks questions later (with the bad guys), and is totally HOT! However, I am no masochist like Megan, and if he came at me with a paddle or cane I’d safeword, I know I would. He was my first hero and will always hold a special place in my heart. He also has a military officer bearing (stern, no-nonsense and authoritative), which leaves me tongue-tied and drooling. Oh, and did I say he was hot??? Tall, dark, handsome and Italian… YUM!
Kallista: YUM indeed! I love Italian too. Especially the Chicken Alfredo at Olive Garden. But I digress. Shouldn't have scheduled this interview just before lunch. Next question - how many books have you written?
Maddie: Unbelievably, I’m up to fifteen published books and three have been included in boxed sets. I have another one in editing that I hope to have out by the end of the year.
Kallista: You must be really good at typing one-handed! How long does it usually take you to write a book?
Maddie: Depends. The spirit of creativity (and naughtiness) has to moves me. When it does, they roll off my fingers. I wrote Everything Christmas in 3 weeks, although it is a novella, it seemed effortless. Other times I’ll stop and start, take a break and then come back to it later, at times much, much later. I started Unbind My Heart, Club Decadence book 4 in the fall of 2013 and it wasn’t published until July ’14. I work full time so I can’t crank them out, as some of the more prolific authors, but 15 in 18 months is pretty good, I think. However, it’s never fast enough for my readers and me.
Kallista: Personally I prefer it slow, but to each her own. Can you give us a hint about what you’re working on for your next release?
Maddie: I’ll give you more than a hint.
Kallista: Oooh, you little slut!
Maddie: My sequel to Marshal’s Law is written and currently in the editing/beta process so, it should be soon. The tentative title is Western Justice, although I’m still mulling it over. Like the first in the Silverbend Series, it is a western historical erotic romance set in Wyoming 1878. This story is about Heath, the oldest Jackson brother, and features many of the characters from the first book. The third brother’s story will follow sometime next year.
Kallista: We'll be waiting for both of them. Meanwhile, Lanie's Lessons is out now and your fans can read it as fast as they want. How about giving us a little peek?
Maddie: In this scene, Ethan has a surprise for Lanie. In the guise of stern Professsor Fischer, he selects her outfit and orders her to present herself in his classroom for a much needed lesson in deportment. Enjoy…
“Bend over the desk.”
On shaky legs, she stepped forward grateful for the support of the sturdy surface and the coolness of the wood against her heated skin. Positioning her head so she could see him, her eyes followed as he moved behind the desk.
Intensely aware of his every movement, Lanie gasped as her focus centered on his mouth as he sucked her juices from his sodden fingers. She moaned uncontrollably wishing he was drinking directly from the source.
He glanced up at the soft sound, slowly sliding his fingers out of his mouth. But he wasn’t finished. Once free, he spread his two fingers and lapped up what was left with a long glide of his tongue, from tip to tip and along the dip between.
“You’re killing me, Ethan.”
“Shh, no talking during lessons. And it’s Professor Fischer or sir to you, Miss Langston. You won’t die from delayed gratification, no one ever has to my knowledge.”
“I just might be the first, sir.”
Attorney Lanie Fischer is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but the stress of her caseload has been mounting relentlessly. She puts on a brave face at work, but behind closed doors Lanie has become an emotional wreck, and her husband, law professor Ethan Fischer, is tired of watching her self-destruct. She’s not sleeping, she’s lost weight, and their sex life is starting to suffer. Something has to give, and as far as he is concerned,it is time for a radical new approach.
From now on, Ethan decides, his wife will be spending quite a bit of quality time over his knee with her bottom bare, learning some lessons she has needed for a long time.
Some of Lanie’s spankings turn out to be purely erotic, ending with the hottest sex she and Ethan have ever had, but others are meant to teach her what happens when naughty wives disobey their husbands and fail to take care of themselves. Unconventional though it may be, to her surprise Lanie soon begins to crave both her husband’s sexier spankings and his discipline as well.
But can she live happily as a loving wife and obedient submissive at home even as she battles in court at work every day, or will the conflicting demands tear her apart?
Publisher’s Note: Lanie’s Lessons is an erotic romance novel that contains spankings, sexual scenes, elements of medical play and BDSM, anal play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
