New Release from Suzy Shearer!

Hello Suzy!  Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today!  It’s such a pleasure to chat with you.  So tell me…
 1)      What is your writing process? Do you outline, write by the seat of your pants (Pantser) or a combination of both?

This book is the third in a series. Each book’s central character is one of the males in a club. I hadn’t considered writing about Ash this soon, I had in mind a couple of other characters that I felt drawn to. But for some reason Ash wasn’t satisfied and demanded his story be told.
Who am I to ignore a character?
I am definitely a panster – in fact while writing Ash I wrote the chapter where they finally get together first.

     2)      Do you have a ritual when it comes to writing? Example….get coffee, blanket, paper, pen, laptop and a comfy place.
I write in my office. I try to start ‘work’ around 7:30 and work through until around 1pm unless the muse is either demanding or a no-show. Always have a cup of black Chinese White tea on hand and music blaring in the background. My iPod is set on shuffle and I listen to a very eclectic mix of music (everything from Opera, Pop, classical right through to Tibetan throat singing and chants).

     3)      What was your process for coming up with the title and character names?

Titles are always hard for me. I tend to give the MS something simple to start with then often change the name half a dozen times until something just clicks. Often it’s a phrase in the book that kind of sums it all up.
Character names are also hard. When I first started writing I went through all my ancestors and named my characters. Now I’ve ran out of old family names and have to come up with new ones. Because my characters are more mature I search out names from the 50s and 60s.

    4)      What future projects are on the horizon for you?
I have two books with my publisher at the moment. One is in the final edits stage so it should be released fairly soon. It’s a ménage and called Sweet Things.
The other book is a paranormal ménage romance about vampires and mortals called Blood War.
I’ve a number of WIPs including a few more Masters from the Silk Rope Master series that I hope to finish writing by the end of the year or early next year.

They ooze power, control, natural dominance - and sex. They are The Silk Rope Masters.​

None have ever found love but watch out! When they fall, they'll fall fast and hard!

Sophie Laurent, 51, is filling in for her chef brother at Silk Rope when she comes face-to-face with Master Ash. A natural born Dom, Ash (Reyansh) Siddiqi, 53, is club co-owner. A confirmed bachelor, never been in love, never been in a relationship. He takes his pleasures without romantic involvement, and always only at the club.

But when Sophie stepped into the club chef's shoes Ash was caught and he fell hard and fast. He was besotted and acting like a teenager instead of the strong dominant man he was.

Unfortunately for Ash it was obvious Sophie disliked him. His heart broke as he tried to accept her rejection of him.

Ash decides he needs to be the Dom he is – strong and confident, then all he has to do is come up with a way to change her mind before her brother returns and she’s out of his life forever.

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, voyeurism, flogging, public exhibition
This is an erotic romance. There are explicit sexual descriptions and explicit language used throughout. It will offend some readers.

“I think I’d better meet this beauty who has you all in a tizzy.” Ash left the other two and went wandering around the club. He thought he’d wait until around eleven before introducing himself to Sophie. There wouldn’t be as many demands on her time as most would have already eaten and she would be winding down for the night.
A little after eleven, Ash walked through the back door and into the kitchen. Sophie had just put something in the oven and had stood. Stepping back, she bumped into Ash and let out a scream of surprise as he grabbed her to stop her falling.
“Oh, hell, I’m really sorry. I should have made a noise.”
An armful of stunningly beautiful woman turned her head and glared at him. Those amazing eyes stared directly into his and he caught his breath. He couldn’t take his gaze off her.
She wiped a hand across her forehead. “Merde, you scared me, I didn’t expect anyone in here.”
Ash realized his hands were still full with a thick lush body. With his arms around her, he felt her heart pound from her fright when he’d grabbed her. Now she twisted until he was forced to let her go. He held out a hand. “I’m Ash Siddiqi. Hi.”
“Oh. Sorry about that but you gave me a start. I’m Sophie Laurent,” she replied as she shook his hand, that slight French accent tickling his ear.
There was a look on her face that surprised him. He was used to new people staring at him like they were kind of fearful, but this was something else he couldn’t quite place. Surprise? Dread? Shock?
“How is everything? Jake and Alex tell me your brother is doing well.”
“Yes. He’s fine, although he’s a bit like a bear with a sore head because he can’t get around or do much.”
Calder came in from collecting used dishes in the dining room and nodded hello to Ash. “Evening, Ash. Have a good break?”
Ash nodded as Calder went on, “Chef, do you want me to wash up now or prep for tomorrow?”
“Leave the washing for another fifteen minutes. If you just load up the dishwasher, then we’ll start the prep.”
“Yes, Chef.”
Ash said, “I think I’d better leave you, I only wanted to say hello. If you need anything, just give me a shout.”
“Thank you, Mr. Siddiqi.”
“It’s Ash.”
She merely nodded and turned her back on him. Ash watched as she began sorting ingredients then he left.
The other two are right. She’s stunning! He couldn’t forget the feel of her lush body in his arms. He hadn’t intended to hold her but she would have fallen if he hadn’t. Then his arms had felt plenty of curves and an abundance of padding. And those eyes! Amazing color, a real vivid green surrounded by blue—light to dark on the outer edge. He couldn’t remember ever seeing ones like hers before. Ash went into the club proper and wandered through, but he couldn’t get those eyes out of his mind. She had full lips too—no lipstick, only delicious-looking lips that were a rosy pink color and simply begged to be kissed. Later, he stuck his head into the kitchen to say goodnight, but the place was in darkness and when he glanced at his watch, he saw it was after two in the morning.
Damn, missed her. I’ll catch her tomorrow night.
