Maddie Taylor's been a busy little bee this month and I'm happy to announce her lasted in the Club Decadence series. Well, actually this is a spin off called Decadence Nights and oh baby, lemme tell ya I am most certainly among the throngs 'Woo-Hooing' over this.
Melody: So, you've published 3 books so far this summer since May and 20 over all. What's it been like having 3 in a row nearly back to back?
Maddie: They got progressively harder because they got closer together. I had a solid month between Second Time Lucky and The Trail Master's Bride, but only ten days between the last two.
Promoting got rather crazy with two blog tours overlapping. I got a bit frazzled and would forget who was hosting when? I think I got everyone what they needed, but might have
missed sharing a time or two when I was on. Bottom line, a month apart is preferable but not always possible.
Melody: What made put Joseph in tweed suits and bow ties?
Maddie: He was Mara's hot nerdy lawyer in Second Time Lucky. After I was done with that story, he got stuck in my head. I imagined Harrison Ford as Professor Indiana Jones with the round glasses, bowtie and tweed suit. Harrison would have been perfect for the cover, but I think he would have been over our budget. LOL You can't always find what you envision in
stock photos. Olivia in the red dress was perfect and the dark handsome man holding her, was close. I think it turned out hot and eye catching which has to always be our goal. Right?
Melody: Club Decadence has branched off in a couple of different directions, with Decadence LA and now Decadence Nights. What inspired you to do this?
Maddie: In a word, fans. I have gotten many messages and requests for more stories, Lil T right now is the number one request and his story is coming, but I've had requests for Mistress Anne, Ben the bartender and The Baron from Second Time Lucky. It was either send them to LA, which I didn't want to do, or have the all converge on Club Decadence. Voila! a spin off.
I also wanted a branch to cling to after Book 6 because I love my Doms and don't want to see them go.
Melody: Do you have a number one fan that you know of?
Maddie: I have several that always like and comment on cover reveals, snippets and are the first to buy the books as soon as they go live on Amazon. I'm not sure who's #1, but I love when they post "I got it!" :)
Melody: How did you come up with your pen name?
Maddie: Now, Melody. That is top secret and if I told you, I'd have to have one of my badass commandos hunt your down and... No, you might enjoy that too much ;) But really, its a mixture of family names.
How about a peek of what's under that hot cover up there?
Without being told to, she opened her mouth, greedily accepting him as he slid into her, once, twice, and a final time when he came with a growl over her tongue and down her throat. With both hands in her hair, he held her head gently while Livvy lapped and licked him, his body trembling as he came down from his climax. After a few long intimate moments, he pulled away.
“I’m due in Ft. Worth this afternoon, as you know. I’ll be back on Friday at three o’clock. You have until then to think about what you want and make a decision.” He paused to zip his trousers and buckle his belt. The finality of his action gave her a very bad feeling. She suppressed a groan. He was demonstrating his control, both of her and her pleasure. Her body still hummed with arousal, yearning for him.
He squatted in front of her, his big hands sliding up to her cheeks, lifting her face so close to his she could feel his breath. Wanting him so badly her teeth ached, she leaned into his touch.
“You have two choices, Olivia. Forget about last night and go back to the way we were. Working together on friendly terms, but tamping down your desires, living in self-denial because you’re afraid to go for what you want.” Gently stroking a finger down her cheek, he met her shimmering blue eyes. “Or, you can come to me at three o’clock and surrender, to both the pleasure of last night and when needed, the discipline of this morning, fulfilling your long suppressed desires and living your life as you’re meant to, not merely going through the motions, but experiencing it at its fullest, with me. If you choose surrender, you will do so on your knees.” He moved closer, his lips brushing hers as he spoke. “One more thing, no touching. When you come to me, I want you as you are now: cunt bare, gloriously wet and hungry for me.”
Thirty-eight-year-old legal secretary Olivia Wright's clock is ticking and she's afraid she's running out of time to find Master Right. Several times she thought she'd found the Dom of her dreams, but instead of the prince she sought, he'd turned out to be a slimy toad. The last one had dumped her unexpectedly and nearly broken her. Now, after a long dry spell, she's ready to try again. She'd really like it to be with the man who'd caught her eye three years ago, but that man is her boss and despite her best efforts, and tightest skirts, he hasn't spared her an extra glance. Resigning herself to unrequited love, she attempts to move on, procuring an invitation to an exclusive BDSM club, hoping Club Decadence will be the answer.
Joseph Hooks isn't your typical Dom. He's NBA tall, with no police or military background to speak of, wears tweed suits, of all things, and on an occasion the dreaded bow tie. But behind his somewhat nerdy appearance is a handsome, green eyed, strict but sensual dominant who's also hell on wheels in a court of law. He's wealthy, powerful, successful, and enjoys popularity among the subs at his private club, at least those who don't flee from the swishing sound of polished rattan, but he's exhausted his search for his perfect submissive and concerned about coming up short. After a frustrating day of watching his gorgeous secretary's delectable bottom in an incredibly tight skirt, he heads to San Antonio to blow off steam and maybe make a connection.
He thinks she's terminally vanilla and straight- laced. She thinks he's not into her, or with the way he ignores her curves and tight skirts, possibly gay. Hopelessly oblivious to what has been staring them in the face for three long years, Joseph and Olivia continue their aimless search for love. Then, one night, as a storm brews outside another rages inside as their paths converge. Will Olivia finally get the Master Prince she deserves, or will her past prevent her from realizing her dream? Will her presence at the club be the sign that Joseph needs to wake up and at long last claim the woman he's yearned for all along?
