A visit with Anya Summers

HerHighlandMaster_bigThank you for having me on your blog today, Cynthia! I’m super excited to be here today and talk about my newest release.

  • How did you get started writing? My journey into writing began when I was a teenager. I had fashioned myself into becoming the next Emily Dickinson and wrote poetry. Really awful soul-sucking poetry that will never see the light of day. It wasn’t until after I had graduated from undergrad that I tried my hand at writing books. By the end of that first book, which will also never see the light of day, I was hooked. That was fifteen years ago and I love what I do.
  • What genre(s) do you write in and why? I write Erotic Romance under the name Anya Summers. Additionally, I write Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance under the name Maggie Mae Gallagher. The reason behind the two separate names is that the Erotic Romance is such a departure from the other two genres with the love scenes quite a bit more spicy and explicit than my UF and PNR titles, and not everyone is comfortable reading that level of kink. Also, on a personal note, I’m writing the Erotic under a name my father knows nothing about, because there are some things a father should never know that their daughter knows about.
  • Tell us about your current series. The Dungeon Fantasy Club Series is an Erotic Romance series. As it stands right now there are 8 books in the series, coming out over the next eight months. The first book in the series is Her Highland Master where we get to meet the sexy Scot, Declan McDougal.
  • Where do you get the ideas for your stories? My ideas come from all walks of life. One of my best sources of inspiration is music.
  • Tell us about your hero. Give us one of his strengths and one of his weaknesses. Declan McDougal was fashioned with a likeness toward Richard Armitage. I kinda have a thing for that man, especially when he’s dressed up as Thorin Oakenshield. He’s an alpha billionaire Dom and one of the founding members of the Dungeon Fantasy Club. He is inherently kind and willing to go to battle for those in need. His weakness is his fear of loving again.
  • Tell us about your heroine. Give us one of her strengths and one of her weaknesses. Zoey Mills is a woman whose life just imploded. A hard worker, she’s had to carry a ton of responsibility on her shoulders for years, and is finally taking some much needed time for herself. Her greatest strength is her bravery while her weakness would be her inability to trust others.
  • What genres are you drawn to as a reader? I’m a huge fan of just about every romance sub-genre available: Paranormal, Contemporary, Erotic, Historical, Romantic Suspense, and my list could go on. I love Dean Koontz and the thriller genre. I’ll read just about anything you put in front of me.
  • DungeonFantasyWhat’s next for you? The entire Dungeon Fantasy Club Series will be released over the next eight months. They are all stand-alone titles. I also have releases slated this fall in my PNR and UF Series that I write under the name Maggie Mae Gallagher.

Her Highland Master

Zoey Mills’s life is in shambles. She’s been accused of leaking her upper crust Hollywood clients’ data to an online magazine for a large payday. After a wine and chocolate-filled evening of drowning her sorrows, she determines that her best course of action is to leave her home in sunny Los Angeles for a week-long vacation in the Scottish Highlands. It’s the only way she can escape from the fact that her image is being splashed across the nightly news – and it might actually give her a chance to consider what her next move should be, now that her Great Master Life Plan has disintegrated into dust.

Unfortunately, she’s only just landed and is navigating the tiny roads in her rental car when a freak early autumn snow storm hits. Zoey finds herself stranded and winds up on the doorstep of Mullardoch Manor; home of the sexy Scotsman, Declan McDougal, who is her every dark fantasy brought to life.

Declan is one of the founding members of The Dungeon Fantasy Club. As a billionaire businessman and a Dom, he HerHighlandMaster Tour Banner copy (1)prefers to keep his sexual preferences and tastes away from the boardroom. He’s also become bored, not just with the club, but also with his life. None of the subs he meets can hold his interest for more than a night and it’s been that way for a long time. He just never wants more than a brief encounter. At least, not since his ex-fiancée cheated on him with another Dom and ran away. However, that all changes when Zoey barrels into his home uninvited and upends his luxurious but stale existence.

When Zoey finds herself without a place to stay, Declan makes her a tantalizing but scandalous offer: Stay in his home for the week, free of charge, and spend each night warming his bed. Or any other time of the day, for that matter. Deciding she doesn’t have much to lose and possibly everything to gain, Zoey accepts.

With Zoey’s every sweet subsequent cry of ecstasy, Declan uncovers a sub who warms not only his bed, but slowly thaws his frozen, scarred heart. And as Zoey explores her deepest fantasies, even as he spanks her bare bottom for disobeying his rules, she finds herself wanting more than just a week of unmitigated pleasure with the Dom.

Things seem to be progressing perfectly, both in bed and out, when Zoey’s past catches up with her. When he feels betrayed once more, and fears the woman he has grown to care for is not who she says she is, will Declan still be willing to risk his heart to become Her Highland Master?
