Guest Author & Giveaway: Sara Brookes featuring Taking Over Me

Wednesday, June 5

My guest today is author Sara Brookes!  She's here today to share with us a bit about her new erotic romance series with Ellora's Cave, Geek Kink.  Enjoy!


For me, the idea of writing a series about a bunch of kinky geeks was a no-brainer. I mean, think about it. How sexy would it be for your computer-inclined lover to hack your electronic sex toy or even build custom vibrators from a radio controlled car? (I'm not making this up, really - there's a website out there dedicated to sharing information like this) Not that I want to necessarily have sex a la Demolition Man where Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock don oddly shaped electronic devices so they can have “virtual” sex, but the idea could certainly be titillating to the right person.

A lot of geek culture is already saturated with kink. How about cosplay (dressing up as a favorite character)? Furries (dressing up as animals)? Look at all the corsets in steampunk, which popularity seems to be rising by the minute. It's all just role-play and it's a pretty safe bet there are many geeks who finds that sexy.

I'm not ashamed to admit I'm one of them.

I've also read my fair share of science fiction books (non-romance ones GASP), a genre which seems to naturally attract geeks, and boy, there are some really kinky stuff on those pages. Dealing with beings from other planets seems as if it's the perfect avenue for exploring the boundaries of lust and sex.

Sex, kink and geeks are just begging (pun intended) to go together.

He’s everything she didn’t know she needed…

Allison would rather fix computers than worry about sex. That is, until the newest barista in town changes everything. All it takes is one hot stare with his sinful baby blues to remind her she’s not just one of the guys. She has lusty needs only he can fulfill.

Patrick’s coffee shop is on the verge of an epic failure, until Allison takes charge of his computer system. He may not know anything about motherboards, but he does know how to take control both in and out of bed. Now Patrick is determined to get what he wants—Allison in his cuffs. His sensual mastery awakens an intense passion and under his command, he’ll unlock the geek girl’s darkest desires.

Warning: Collars. Cuffs. Clamps. Coffee. You may never look at your local barista the same way again.

Enjoy this special excerpt:

“Impressive.” A line formed between his eyebrows as he frowned. He leaned forward, peeking over the gold bar that ran the length of the knee wall. “Good-sized crowd down there. And we’re the only ones up here. Is that normal?”

She led him to a row, sitting in the center seat. “It is if you know the projectionist. Gamer buddy of mine, Cooper, puts on these festivals once a month, a different theme each time. Most of the time the movies are older, classic Hollywood. Bogey and Bacall. The Rat Pack. John Wayne. This month he picked Hitchcock.”

“An extraordinary storyteller.”

“I agree. We tend to sit up here because while crowds have their place, a lot of people tend to dilute the sound quality.”

Patrick smirked. “Well now, that makes sense. Movie buffs would go for where the sweet spot is in the theater.”

“We tend to be creatures of habit, sadly.” She shrugged off the light sweater she’d worn to keep the chilly spring night air off her bare shoulders. Comprehension sank in at something he’d said. She turned to find him smiling almost expectantly. “Wait a second. You know about the sweet spot?”

His smile widened, melting her insides a little. Great, as if I wasn’t already infatuated enough, he has to flash that intoxicating grin.

“My life isn’t just about coffee and tea, Allison. I may not be as technologically savvy as you are, but there are a few things I can hold my own with.” His voice dropped a bit as he leaned over the padded armrest. “And just for clarification purposes, I know about quite a few sweet spots.”

Sara Brookes is an award-winning author who has always been fascinated by the strange, the unusual, the twisted and the lost (tortured heroes are her personal favorite). She is an action movie junkie, addicted to coffee and has been known to stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing RPG video games. Despite all this, she is a romantic at heart and is always a sucker for an excellent love story. Born and bred in Virginia, Sara still lives there with her husband and daughter. The entire family is owned by two cats, Galahad and Loki, who graciously allow the family to cater to their every desire.

To celebrate the release of Taking Over Me, Sara will be awarding a $50.00 gift card to Starbucks and a Perfect Shot (coffeehouse in Taking Over Me) coffee mug to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.  Please visit this link for more tour stops and any rules or restrictions for the giveaway..

Yes, congrats on the new release. Sara and Patrick's story sounds like a fun read. I love geeks waking up to what's around them besides their geekdom.

I wonder why this story is in the EC Taboo line, it seems to be a straight, moderate BDSM which I wouldn't have thought would be "taboo" for EC.

Taking Over Me sounds intriguing. Usually, it's the guys that are the Geeks. Can't wait to read this book to see more of Patrick and Allison.
Congrats on the new release.

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)
