Today I have the pleasure of featuring author Anna Lores and her book Ella’s Triple Pleasure. The first chapter of this book is in Passionate Cravings, an erotic book sampler.
Are you in control of your characters or do they control you?
Control is a big challenge for me… Who gets the power in the story? I like to think I control my characters by placing them in situations they may or may not like, but they seem to control their thoughts and emotions.
What drew you to the characters in this story?
I thought about writing a reverse harem story after a miserable week of kids being sick and my husband being out of town. I remember the night I started penning Ella’s Triple Pleasure. I had gotten the kids to bed (in my bed) and went to the couch to wind down. I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have three men to help take care of the kids so I could take a break. I turned my emotional struggle into Ella’s financial one. The men drew me in because each one was different and could handle different aspects of everyday life…and rocked it between the sheets. I was hooked on these characters and their unconditional love for each other.
What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?
My favorite punctuation mark…hmmm…uh…well…I’d have to think about that one… 😉
Tell us about Ella’s Triple Pleasure.
It takes three men to satisfy one woman’s needs…
Single mom and massage therapist Ella Winthrop isn’t looking for a relationship. She has enough problems without risking a business that barely meets her needs. Then her world is turned upside down by three men, each offering something she isn’t prepared for—love so deep it hurts, sex so hot she’s afraid she’ll melt from the pleasure, and a future beyond her wildest dreams.
Steamy businessman Cade Jackson has it all—money, looks, a giving heart, and a dominant nature—but Ella refuses to date a client even if she’s lusted after him for a year. After his brother’s death, Garrett Winthrop moves back to town opening old wounds and even darker fantasies. Dr. Derek McGregor gives her balance and understanding that speaks to her soul. All three men force Ella to question the limits of a traditional relationship.
“So, is it too soon to ask for a foot massage?” Cade sported a slight curve at the corners of his mouth. “You know how much I like my feet rubbed.”
She laughed and turned to face him. He did it again. He made an uncomfortable situation comfortable and pushed away her doubts. “Cade Jackson, you’re a liar. You hate your feet rubbed. You squirm like a worm while I’m working on them.” She playfully squeezed his large muscular bicep. Yum.
He raised his hands in surrender as she let go. His shirt lifted and showed off bodybuilder abs worth drooling over. “I didn’t think you noticed. You’d rub my feet for ten agonizing minutes every Tuesday. Were you trying to torture me?”
She branched out from her normal course of action and tried a move at seduction. Her first. Ever. She leaned toward him and whispered, “I’ve been waiting for you to tell me you didn’t like it.”
“But I do like it.” He placed his hands on the edge of the table. Hiwrinkled the linen tablecloth. “It hurts, but it feels so good afterward.” He lifted a lock of her hair near her cheek and tucked it behind her ear. “Let’s go back to the main house and eat dessert.”
He traced the side of her neck with his fingers down to her collarbone. A soft wave of shivers rippled over her flesh. The proximity of his smoking-hot body and lips pushed her into lust hyper-drive. All he’d have to do was kiss her earlobe, and she’d have an orgasm.
“Do you want to wrap up the leftovers and bring them with us?”
“The fridge is stocked at the main house.” He glided his hand over her shoulder and down her arm to her hand. “Ready?”
He curled his fingers around her hand and tugged her up.
She nodded, standing on unsteady legs.
“Um, sure?” Am I ready for dessert with Cade?
She could do the food kind but hoped he meant a naughtier kind of ending to their meal.
