A submissive like no other

What would it take to be crowned the queen of submissives?  Unmeasured tells the story of how Oleg came to adore Samantha and the power she holds as the most irresistible submissive he's ever met.  His Dominant friends are not immune either.  I loved getting inside the head of my wild-child Senator's daughter.  There was always something people loved about Samantha when she made appearances in Make Me and Swept. 

When Oleg showed up to ruin Jack's life in Swept, I wrote a character that you wanted to hate, but just couldn't. Oleg stuck with me, and by the time I was finished writing Swept, I knew I would have to tell his story too.

That New York Accent

Both Polished and Swept are set within the contrast of Upstate New York and Manhattan.  As a native New Yorker, I was particularly committed to presenting an authentic New York accent in the performance of Spencer who was raised in Queens.  What many don't realize is that there are at least seven different accents within the tri-state area.  Within New York there is a distinct accent for each borough of Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island and Manhattan as well as Long Island.    George Orlando, who voiced both Spencer and Jack in Polished wasn’t available for Swept (touring with his band took him away from voice acting).  In Swept, Jack Hawkins did an amazing job delivering Spencer’s roughened NYC perspective while still accessing the sensitivity this character reveals to the two people he trusts.  Character Jack Rothman was raised wealthy on the upper east side of Manhattan and his accent is much more neutral.  Adam Riley, who voices Jack in all his dominant glory, is actually Canadian.  I think you’ll be impressed with his delivery of Jack in both Dom mode and as he faces the challenges of his vulnerability.  Rory hails from up-state where the accents are also more neutral.  Erin Bateman is back to give Rory a great rendition of her girl next door vibe.

Speaking of accents, Russian mobster, Oleg Balashov’s chilled confidence is delivered with a buttery smooth approach in exactly the manner that I conjured when writing Swept.  The actor Jack Walters who voiced Oleg has an Eastern European lineage which influenced his performance.  Lastly the spunky and vivacious Samantha, who first appeared in Make Me, makes another appearance in Swept and is voiced by Vivianna Marlowe. You’ll hear more from Vivianna in the upcoming release of Four Real in audio.

Here's Rory Jack and Spencer

Here's Oleg and Jack...

Swept in Audio

And....without further delay!  Swept is available on Audible with an incredibly dramatic performance from five great narrators. Erin Bateman is back as Rory, and she is joined by Jack Hawkins as Spencer, Adam Riley as Jack, Vivianna Marlowe as Samantha and Jack Walters as Oleg (Gorgeous Russian accent and all.)  I know...you're thinking, that's a lot of Jacks!  Well..there might well indeed be plenty more jacks to be found inside the book. 😁

I digress.  I wasn't easy on my characters in this book, there are highs that are only more sweet because of the journey they take through the tough stuff.  It took a real level of commitment from these performers to pull off the emotion I aimed to bring to this story.  I can't say how pleased I am!  If you'd like a little taste, whether you've read Swept or not, I think you'll see what I mean.

BUY SWEPT on Audible

BUT First...Get a huge preview of Polished if you haven't already.

These books can both be read alone, but the experience is much more intimate in order.

Mamma Romance

What a romance author can teach her son.

The other day I was hit on in the most awkward way.  The worst part wasn’t that the man in question was a federal employee, with the power to make a simple task nearly impossible. It wasn’t that it happened with about twenty other people listening.  The fact that I’m happily married and let him know it was not the biggest issue. Yes, all that is cringe worthy enough!  The worst part of it was the terrible example the whole thing set for my son. 

If a romance author can clear anything up, it’s the right way and the wrong way to leave an impression on a woman. One day soon, I see a sit down in our future.  I may not be able to help him with math anymore, but how to speak to the female heart…this I know.

I think I’ll let him shrug off the willies first. (Never a dull moment.)
