Guest Post / Blitz : Club Luxe

Fifty Shades of Grey meets Lois Lane

In a world filled with books about controlling, dominant men, I set out to write about a female that was a match for them. It was a difficult puzzle at first, to figure out how an ordinary woman could compete with a high-powered billionaire, and hold her own against all his attempts to manipulate her.
Then it hit me. My childhood hero, Lois Lane, stood up to Superman on a daily basis.
Both in and out of the bedroom.
While my billionaire businessman Malcolm Cage is not a superhero, he is wealthy enough that he might as well have superpowers, along with the ego that follows them. But Victoria has a superpower too: her sense of justice and unshakable resolve ensure that she will never let this handsome CEO destroy her and trample her heart. Her self-esteem and values make her invulnerable to his cruel games and emotional torture.
It has bothered me how much erotic romance focuses on humiliating and belittling the female for pleasure. While Victoria is placed in many uncomfortable predicaments that are downright mortifying, her strength of mind and character will take her through them all unscathed. Her focus is on her goals and purpose, and while she struggles with sexual distractions and emotional fragility as much as anyone, she tries her best to conquer her weaknesses and push forward in a man’s world.

My goal is to write books that are sexy as well as empowering, and I know that I have finally succeeded with this one. The chemistry between Victoria and Malcolm is sizzling and off the charts, but both characters are headstrong and challenge each other to be constantly better. Sometimes, it warms my heart when I see the fire and tenacity of Lois Lane rising to the surface in Victoria’s stubbornness. I really wanted to create a brave and ballsy female character for modern women to look up to, and I hope that my readers will find her inspiring. She definitely inspires me, and I love writing about her.

Victoria Chase is Chicago’s hottest new reporter, looking to make the scoop of the century. Rumor has it that in the bowels of the city lies a private sex club for the wealthy elite. Willing to do anything for a story, she infiltrates the club, determined to uncover this urban legend. She didn’t expect to run into him: 

Malcolm Cage.

The famous billionaire bad boy is the king of Club Luxe. Every Friday night, he reigns supreme over untold sinful pleasures in his underground kingdom. His one rule? He never participates and only watches—until he sees Victoria.

She sets his body and soul on fire, and Malcolm does not plan on letting her go. Can Victoria keep it professional and get her story? Or will her heart betray her under Malcolm’s smoldering gaze?
Angrily, she reached for the bottle of shampoo and squeezed a liberal amount into her hand. She set it back on the shower caddy and lathered her hair with the softly scented gel. Almost instantly, she began to feel better. The sweat that had collected throughout the night was washing away along with some of her bitterness. The soothing feeling of her hair becoming clean was only surpassed by the feeling of her fingers kneading her scalp. She sighed a little at the feeling and her mind drifted to Malcolm’s touch.
“Stupid, selfish man!” she muttered to herself as she rinsed her hair.
“I resemble that remark,” a dark voice said from behind her.
Victoria spun around to face the intruder and her eyes narrowed at the sight of Malcolm holding open the glass door to the shower. His chest and face were partly obscured by the steamy fog from the hot water, and he looked unearthly. “What are you doing here?” she asked with a hint of dread in her voice.
“I couldn’t stay away from you,” he said as he took a step closer to her.
She gulped down some air and crossed her arms over her breasts unconsciously. His naked muscles rippled as he stepped forward, and her body quivered at the sight of him. She could feel his eyes wandering over her and she felt hot under his gaze. “Malcolm,” she whispered.
He didn’t give her much chance to speak as his arms quickly wrapped around her waist. His lips crashed into hers like a tidal wave, and she was so caught up in it that she couldn’t breathe. She was drowning in his kiss and loved every moment of it. His passion inundated her with more force than the expensive shower jets, and bathed her far more thoroughly. Her arms pulled him closer to her and she slowly traced her fingers up his back.
“Victoria,” he groaned in agony. “I need to have more of you.”

His words sent shivers up her spine. Tears pricked the back of her eyes as she began to feel the tiniest twinge of hope. “I need you too,” she whispered, clinging to his neck.
