Feeling lost and abandoned by the man she loves, Sylvia tries to bond with her new
Master, Mr. King. Sylvia will do anything to please him as he dominates her with a strong hand—commanding her, disciplining her, even sharing her with his business partners—just like Mr. Grant did. Mr. King fulfils her every fantasy. But unlike Mr. Grant, he cherishes her, and shows her the love she craves. She truly wishes she could give him what he wants. Her love. But she knows in her heart, she will never stop loving Mr. Grant.
Mr. Grant can’t live without Sylvia and realizes he must find a way to get her back. He wants her under his command… and in his bed. But can he convince Mr. King to give her back when it’s clear the man has fallen in love with her?
“You’re not sleeping,” he murmured against her ear, his breath sending tendrils of her hair dancing across her cheek.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to wake you, Master.”
“Not at all. I’m just wondering what you’re thinking about.”
He rolled her back toward him and stared at her, his blue eyes barely visible in the soft moonlight.
“Are you thinking about Mr. Grant?”
She tried not to give herself away… tried not to let her body stiffen… but what gave her away was the tear shimmering in her eye.
He wiped it away, then kissed her sweetly. “I wish you were happy here. I wish being here with me was enough for you.” He spoke quietly, but the edge of pain in his words bit through her.
She stroked his raspy cheek. “You are, Master. You take care of me. You do everything you can to make me happy.”
“And I love you. But you don’t love me. And there seems to be nothing I can do to change that.”
She hooked her fingers around his neck and drew his face to hers, then kissed him. Sweetly. With a poignancy that filled her heart with sorrow.
“But I do love you,” she lied.
He smiled and stroked her cheek, his touch gentle and full of love.
“If only I could believe you.”
I’ve been writing since 1993, though originally I wrote futuristic, urban fantasy, science fiction, paranormal and contemporary romance. These stories are set in the present, future, or alternate realities and most of my stories are steamy. I am now republishing these under the name Amber Carew.
As Opal Carew, I write erotic romances which always have a romance and a happy ending.
So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a woman who is growing and evolving – questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. I have been writing stories that involve multiple characters and it’s fascinating to work with the interactions between them. What fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes? My current project involves a group of several people who interact sexually and I find the scenario an enjoyable challenge.
I try to keep my characters real. I like to have a heroine with whom the reader can empathize. These aren’t women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation – something exciting and erotic – but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back – of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves – and we don’t follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.
