Q&A with Nikka Michaels! Executive Assistant - Manlove Edition

Welcome Nikka Michaels!  Thank you so much for visiting with me at Written Butterfly!  I just read the blurb and excerpt for “His Assistant” and wow!  I’m in love already!

Hi Beth! Thanks for having me on the Written Butterfly today.

Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of Justin and John’s relationship?

I loved the idea of applying a BDSM relationship with a power exchange to an office environment but flipping it. Instead of the high power executive John being powerful and in charge behind closed doors, his executive assistant Justin is in charge. I love the idea of the power shift.

Q) Do you have any habits that get you in the writing frame of mind?

I read a lot, and listen to music. I think reading is a vital part of writing. For each project I have separate play lists that I listen to that help me get in the writing frame of mind.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?

I have a few WIP’s at the moment, both with my co-writer Eileen Griffin and solo. The collaborative projects include books three and four from the same universe of In the Raw and In the Fire coming out from Carina Press in October and November 2014. Books three and four are both foodie romances like the first two and one is MM and the other is MF. For a solo project I’m working on a MM novel with a vet dealing with PTSD and who finds a new life through volunteer service with a veteran’s organization.


These sizzling hot stories dare to explore the taboo world of office romance. From X-rated job interviews, controlling Doms, to the unprofessional use of office furniture—these seven stories have it all.

Our bestselling authors are determined to make you squirm. You may never see the office the same way again!

“I have several things to add to the next meeting’s agenda and I think you should take some notes, Mr. Ryan. You’ll find a notepad and pen in your desk drawer.”
John swallowed hard, as his handsome face flushed. No one told him what to do like Justin did; they all just scurried around to do his bidding. But Justin didn’t scurry. When John turned toward the desk, obeying orders, Justin knew what he wanted. Justin came up behind him, pressing the length of his body against his boss’s, and whispered in his ear. “On your knees, Jonathan. You do all your best work when you kneel.”
