Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Cadence Vonn. Thanks for stopping by today.
My First question is are you in control of your characters or do they control you?
My characters talk to me. I might be driving the car, but they’re my GPS.
What drew you to the characters in this story?
I love old movies where the heroine is incognito. So I created Tess. She has a mixture of my grandmother’s spunk and my Italian heritage. With Max, nothing is sexier than a stoic man who turns out to be sex as Hell.
And now for my favorite question. What is your favorite punctuation mark and why? The exclamation point! My characters get excited and are vocal when they’re focused on pleasure. It adds that necessary punch at the end.
You’re book, Play A Game With Me, is featured in Passionate Cravings, an erotic sampler. Tell us a little about it.
Maximilian Westfield has resurrected his family’s company under the controlling eye of the major shareholder–his mother. To keep the company, he must marry the woman she chooses, no matter how inane or spineless. He is resigned to go through with the arranged marriage until he meets a feisty costume designer who will never meet his mother’s standards. A stolen kiss spurs his lustful cravings. Once he tastes the spirited beauty’s charms, he knows he has to find a way to keep her and his company. No other woman will do.
The daughter of a powerful British businessman, Teresa Medici Staffordshire leads her life as Tess Medici to avoid men out to please her father. Then she meets Maximilian, a sexy uptight CEO. From the moment he unleashes his expert fingers on her skin, she’s hooked. His erotic games make her body hum with pleasure. Determined to lure Max out to play, every encounter becomes a game of enticement. But his commitment to his family business and his mother’s determination to marry him off makes it impossible to take the relationship public, and Tess refuses to be his guilty little secret
Choices become consequences, their future is on the line, and Max and Tess are running out of time.
Could you share an excerpt from Play A Game With Me?
I’d love to.
Tess opened the door on the first knock.
Max stood transfixed. His fingers fisted together and he scanned her body before he said, “May I come in?”
She stepped out of the way, sweeping her arm in a welcoming gesture.
“What brings you here, Maximilian?”
“I found myself outside hoping the need to see you would pass. I wanted to convince myself that last night was a fluke, but just now when I saw you standing here all thought of not being with you flew out the window. Damn, I want you.” He pulled her into his arms. His hands gripped her bottom, crushing her against him as he claimed her mouth in a hard kiss.
Tess buried her fingers in the waves of hair near the nape of his neck. She held his head so she could deepen the kiss he’d already started. His breath tasted of scotch, and she wondered how many glasses he drank trying to forget her.
