Guest Author & Giveway: Sara Brookes featuring Reclaiming the Edge

Monday, November 26

Do you like Quickie reads?  Sometimes that is exactly what I am in the mood for.  Getting right to the heart of the matter, no messing around.  And for a romance junkie who needs a fast fix, it's just what the romance doctor ordered, LOL.

Author Sara Brookes is my guest today to share with us her new Ellora's Cave Quickie, Reclaiming the Edge, a menage romance with secrets, sobs & some steamy sex.  Enjoy!


Even though Reclaiming the Edge is a Quickie and only just over ten thousand words, writing Dalton, Erin and Cade’s vignette was…difficult. Certain parts were more difficult than others, too. Not because the characters weren’t talking to me—they were. Quite rapidly in fact. There were times I was certain I couldn’t keep up with my fingers flying over the keys of the keyboard. This triad obviously wanted to have this piece of their story told and weren’t happy to have it tucked away into someone else’s book, which was actually the original intent of this particular storyline.

Not only is Reclaiming the Edge sweltering hot it terms of the ménage sex between these three, there is also a very intense emotional storyline. I thought it would be impossible to do in only ten thousand words, but as I discovered, this triad surprised me once again.

But by far the most difficult thing to write in Reclaiming the Edge was the anguish Erin experiences when she is at her most vulnerable. Here she is finally reconnecting with the two men she loves more than anything—and who love her in return—only to crash. Hard. She’s been carrying a secret around with her for months and they unknowingly pull it from her after an intense BDSM scene that has put her deep into subspace. The two men’s care and handling of her both during and after this emotional outburst is heart wrenching and gives even more concrete evidence why these three most definitely belong together. 

The sexual journey of Dalton, Cade and Erin begins in Ragged Edge. You won’t want to miss the beginning of their lusty connection!

It isn’t a birthday celebration without a little pain to chase the pleasure—at least according to Dalton and Cade, the two men who stole Erin’s heart. Relationships are complicated and Erin has been retreating—both emotionally and physically—from her lovers. Pushed away for reasons they don’t understand, and determined to erode her resistance, the men devise a wicked plan. They intend to use two very special gifts and one captivating night to reclaim her submission. But Erin’s trip to subspace extracts a heart-wrenching confession that threatens to rip the triad apart forever.

Warning: Contains a well-trained, dirty-talking submissive who succumbs to the commands of her Master, custom nipple clamps, tongue wagging oral sex, a well-deserved punishment with a butt plug, men who share more than a few heart-racing kisses and a custom-made-work-of-art sex chair that shows this M/M/F triad just how powerful their passion for one another is. And that’s just chapter one.

Read an excerpt & enjoy this additional special excerpt:
“I haven’t seen that look in your eyes in a very, very long time.” Dalton stepped out of the shadows, his fingers capturing her chin to tilt her face to accommodate for their vast height difference. His lips brushed lightly against hers. “I’ve missed it.”

His arresting gray eyes had always been something she got lost in, especially when he looked as if he could devour her at any moment. The pleasurable thought did a lazy slide low in her gut.

Licking her lips, she reminded herself why she’d come here. “You’re late.”

“Seeing you look that way was totally worth it.” Dalton smiled, his fingers skimming against her forehead as he brushed her long fall of strawberry-blonde bangs out of the way. His warm lips pressed against her skin before he gathered her close to his body. She’d always felt so tiny in his arms, his muscular bulk nearly overwhelming. Trapped in his embrace, she’d once been so safe and secure, as if nothing could touch her because she was invincible.


Thanks Sara for being my guest today.  I'm very intrigued by Erin's secret, not to mention the steamy menage storyline :)  I just don't know how you managed to fit all of that into a story that is less than 40 pages!   That's what I call a satisfying quickie, LOL.

Ingeborg November 26, 2012 at 10:47 AM  

Sounds like a great story.


erin November 26, 2012 at 11:42 AM  

Sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing and congrats on the new release!

Anne November 26, 2012 at 11:54 AM  

Yes, congrats on the new release. You have two stories in this series, will there be more?

MomJane November 26, 2012 at 12:21 PM  

Sounds like a caring love story, not just sex.

Kathleen O November 26, 2012 at 12:43 PM  

I can't imagine what it take to be in something like this, but I do love reading about it.

Shannon Ro November 26, 2012 at 2:37 PM  

Wow, this sounds like a incredibly hot novel thank you for sharing it with us. Do you write any more mainstream romance as well?

Sara Brookes November 26, 2012 at 6:50 PM  

Thanks so much for stopping by, Ingeborg, erin, Anne, MomJane, Kathleen & Shannon!

Anne, yes, there will be more in the series, but with other pairs. I'm working on the next full length book for this one, which will be Dalton's best friend, Adam.

MomJane, I always strive to have a love along with the super HOT sex! LOL

Shannon, yes, not everything I write is erotic in nature. I have two series with Liquid Silver Books - one urban fantasy romance and the other futuristic romance. While the sex does get very steamy, it is not as erotic as my Ellora's Cave or Decadent Pub titles.

How do you approach menages, as opposed to straight m/f or m/m?


Catherine Lee November 26, 2012 at 9:48 PM  

I often enjoy a quick read...something I can read after dinner/before bed. This sounds like it might be emotionally intense though, to read before bed.

Thanks for sharing, it sounds like you packed a lot of emotion into those pages. Good luck with the release.

misshalim November 27, 2012 at 2:04 AM  

Wow, that's a burning hot cover! My question is, do you choose the models for your cover? Do you "direct" the photo shoot? I'm curious to know :)

Thanks for sharing the excerpt and for the giveaway! All the best on your release!


Sara Brookes November 27, 2012 at 6:00 AM  

So great of you to stop by Anonymous, Catherine, Elf2060 & misshalim!

Anonymous, menages are no different for me than a couple. Often, because there is another set of emotions involved, the story tends to be more intense both sexually and emotionally.

Catherine, while there is a part that is emotionally intense, the story doesn't end there. After that emotional intensity, there are sexy times again. ;^)

misshalim, this cover has to be one of my favorites! the only say I have with a cover is the cover art sheet I have to fill out early on in the process. And that's usually just describing the characters and what kind of mood I want to "set" for the book. I've been very lucky with art departments and have gotten some fabulous covers!

Sometimes a quick read is just what you need.


Di November 29, 2012 at 8:18 PM  

this story is another reason why I really need to get an eReader!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
