Sharing Leah: A Polyamorous Romance by Lisabet Sarai

Genre Contemporary erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): X-rated

How can she choose between her husband and her master?

Some women might think Leah’s existence heavenly – shared by two sexy men who both adore her. Ten years married to lusty, artistic Daniel, she still finds ecstatic release in surrendering to her master Greg.

But Daniel’s and Greg’s jealousy and possessiveness have made Leah’s life a hell. They bring out the worst in each other. And in some sense, it’s all her fault. If she loved only one of them, if she made a choice, that would be that. In theory, at least.

Unable to bear the continuous conflict, she escapes to the beautiful Maine coast to ponder her future. Gradually she realizes that she cannot live without either of her lovers. But if the two men can’t settle their differences, how can she bear to live with them?

What’s in your character’s pockets, backpack, or purse?

Read the spicy #Romance Sharing Leah by Lisabet Sarai @LisabetSarai #RLFblog #HotReadWhat does your character always carry?

Her mobile phone. Sometimes her work takes her away overnight, to conferences or meetings with clients, and she wants to be able to stay in touch with the two men who are her soul mates.

Is there an item your character carries for good luck and if so, what is it?

Actually, she has two items, one associated with each of her lovers. Folded up in her wallet, she keeps the first poem Daniel wrote to her, the morning after the party where they met more than ten years ago. Meanwhile, tied around her wrist like a bracelet, she wears a leather thong cut from the flogger Greg used, the first time he whipped her. She also wears two rings, her wedding ring on her left hand and a jade and gold ring gifted to her by Greg on her right.

What does your character carry related to a job or calling?

Leah’s a writer, so she carries her laptop with her almost everywhere. Her job involves writing and reviewing for a magazine, but like most people who write what other people tell them to, she’s also working on a novel.

What else besides pockets does the character use to carry things?

She has a shoulder bag she uses for overnight trips. This features in the story.

What is one thing your character wouldn’t be caught dead carrying?

A novel by James Patterson. She has a rather snobbish attitude toward popular fiction.

Has anything in your character’s pockets ever gotten them in trouble?

Oh, yes. Once at a business meeting she reached into her purse for her phone and pulled out a pair of silk bikinis instead. Daniel had come to visit her at lunch time. At his instigation, they’d enjoyed a quickie in the office rest room. Flustered and running late, she hadn’t noticed that her mischievous husband had stuffed her panties into her bag.

Know the Heroine from The Understudy by LisabetSarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #Romance

Aspiring actress Sarah Gladstone falls under the spell of dominant leading man Geoffrey Hart in Lisabet Sarai’s new erotic romance The Understudy: Acts of Submission. Swept off her feet, she’s totally devoted to her master, but if the rumors are true, Geoff’s heart is taken.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about The Understudy: Acts of Submission.

The Understudy: Acts of Submission by Lisabet Sarai

Genre Contemporary BDSM Erotic Romance

Heat level (based on movie ratings) X

When the Berks Hills Summer Playhouse offered me my first real acting job, I never expected to share a stage with theater legend Geoffrey Hart – let alone his bed. Nothing in my education or experience prepared me for the paradoxical pleasures of submission.

Now I’m devoted to my master, for better or worse. According to the rumors, though, Geoff’s heart is taken. Dumped by his long-time sub, he has escaped to the Berkshires to lick his emotional wounds. Geoffrey’s dark games arouse me beyond belief, but I fear I’m just a substitute for the real object of his affections. Am I willing to settle for the role of understudy in this perverse passion play?

Note: This book was previously published by Totally Bound. It has been revised, expanded and re-edited for this release.

Know the Heroine from The Understudy by LisabetSarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #Romance

Know the Heroine from The Understudy: Acts of Submission

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Sarah Gladstone is not the type to be bored. She’s an over-achiever, always working to perfect her acting craft. If it were late, but she couldn’t sleep, she probably would be reviewing her lines for the next day’s performance. That is, unless Geoffrey Hart were down the hall in his room. Then she’d be fantasizing about him, trying to resist knocking on his door when he hadn’t summoned her.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

If she could get some trail mix – preferably organic – she’d be ecstatic. But she’s not picky about food. You can’t afford to be when you’re an actress.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Left to her own devices, she prefers to dress casually, in jeans and button-up shirts. However, Geoff has ordered her to wear only skirts or dresses – with no brassiere or underwear beneath.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s an only child, and her parents spoiled her, so she hasn’t really had the opportunity to learn how to fix things. However, she’s intelligent and independent, so she probably could figure it out.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Sarah’s hard on herself. For instance, at her first New York audition, the director changed the play he wanted her to read at the last minute. She’d spent hours studying up “The Importance of Being Ernest”, then got asked to read from “Salome”. Even without preparation, she didn’t do too badly, but she was a bit flustered and didn’t get the part. Instead of blaming the director, she blamed herself. Fortunately, she knows the acting business is tough, so she didn’t dwell on the situation, just resolved to do better next time.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Sarah loves kids. She always wanted a brother or sister, and was jealous of her friends from large families.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s a morning person, no question. Even when she’s spent half the night with her lover, she can be out of bed, showered and dressed in fifteen minutes. However, she definitely needs a decent breakfast, or she’ll get drowsy by mid-morning.

Can she use chopsticks?

She’s from New York. She was practically born using chopsticks!

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Sarah drinks coffee in moderation, mostly in the morning She takes it black with a bit of sugar.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Her most often used apps include her ebook reading app, dictionary apps, and a Scrabble game. She also has a sketchpad/drawing app that she uses to relax.

Android or iPhone?

Android. Actually, her parents tried to buy her an iPhone, but she refused.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Sarah has pierced ears, but doesn’t always wear earrings. When she does, they tend to be inconspicuous, e.g. small gold hoops.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

She’d never consider a tattoo, since it might conflict with some character she had to play. However, if Geoffrey wanted to permanently mark her as his, she might agree. It’s a toss-up – despite her devotion to her master, her acting career is still incredibly important to her. Of course, Geoffrey will understand this, and not ask her to do anything that might interfere.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

As I mentioned earlier, Sarah grew up in New York City, so she’ll use public transport if it’s available. She does have a driver’s license, and will rent a car and drive if necessary.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Of course! Sarah would be annoyed that anyone even asked that question!

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Read the romance Asian Adventures new from Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #MulticulturalRomanceIn Asia, the lines blur: between body and spirit, fantasy and reality, male and female, lust and love. Explore the emotional frontiers of the Orient in these arousing and moving multicultural romance tales by Lisabet Sarai.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Asian Adventures.

Asian Adventures: Erotic Tales from the East by Lisabet Sarai

Genre – Bisexual multicultural romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): X

Among the ancient ruins of Angkor, passion flares between a black American and her mercurial tour guide. A gay couple on a Vietnam holiday welcome a disabled woman into their circle of love. A construction worker from the Bible belt wrestles with his lust for a Bangkok ladyboy. In strait-laced Singapore, a brilliant entrepreneur tries to hide his secret vice from his attractive new business partner. Indulge yourself in Asian Adventures – a boxed set of lush, evocative erotic romance from an author who has made the East her home.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve been living in Asia for nearly than twenty years. During that time, I’ve traveled widely. I wanted to capture some of my experiences and share them with my readers. Although the characters and plots in Asian Adventures come mostly from my imagination, the settings are real. Asia truly is a paradox, a place where lines blur. These stories are fiction, but I hope they have the ring of truth.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I like variety, so it’s pretty difficult to choose a favorite. Right now I happen to be reading two mysteries: Body Work by Sara Paretsky, and Basket Case, by Carl Hiaasen. The two books could hardly be more different. The former is intricate, dark and violent, unfolding on the icy streets of a Chicago winter. The latter is light-hearted and humorous some would say silly–laced with quirky romance and set in sunny Florida. Both offer great characters, though. I’m also in the middle of an erotic horror tale by Aurelia T. Evans and I’ve just started an erotic romance (In His Arms) by my good friend Tina Donahue. Oh, there’s also the moral philosophy book I’m reviewing for a former professor of mine…

Check back with me in a month and I’ll likely be reading a whole different set of genres!

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Last time I was asked this in an interview, my answer was Sherlock Holmes. But I’d forgotten about V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky’s fantastic private investigator heroine. Unlike some series, Paretsky has allowed her character to age across different volumes. In the book I’m reading now, Vic is pushing fifty, worried about her finances and her family, in a feel-good relationship that she’s not sure has a future. She’s intelligent, experienced and tough, but like all of us she has her demons, and she’s very aware of how age has reduced her energy. The thing that draws me to her most strongly, though, is her moral sense. Despite her street smarts and world-weary attitude, she takes risks and makes choices based on compassion rather than calculation. I’d love to meet her in person.

What are you working on at the moment?

My major WIP right now is The Journeyman’s Trial, the second book in my series “The Toymaker’s Guild”. This is steam punk erotica with some romantic elements, set in an alternative Victorian England. Gillian Smith, the nineteen year old engineering genius who’s my heroine, is one of my favorite creations. I’ve got half a dozen chapters written so far. April will bring me some vacation time, which I hope to be able to devote to writing. My goal is a release in the third quarter of 2021.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

My next book, coming in April, will be a re-release of my BDSM erotic romance The Understudy, a tale about an ingenue and a seasoned veteran in a summer theater troupe. Then in May, readers can look forward to a new, expanded version of my polyamory tale, Truce of Trust.

Playing To Score by Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #GayRomanceCasual sex morphs into something much deeper in Lisabet Sarai’s gay erotic romance Playing to Score. A Scrabble tournament seems an unlikely place to meet one’s soul mate. But then, Matt’s an unlikely sort of guy.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Playing To Score.

Playing to Score by Lisabet Sarai

Genre Gay BDSM Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): X-rated (explicit gay sex)

Matt was supposed to be just a hot hook-up. Then he turned on the charm and brought out the bondage gear.

Jason Hofstadter comes to the Four States Annual Scrabble Tournament for two reasons: to play for the trophy and to get laid. Every year since his first, he’s managed to score with one of the other guys attending. He figures that he’s hit the jackpot when he spots handsome, bookish Matt Sawyer, who’s competing at the Four States for the first time.

Shy and seemingly innocent, Matt turns out to be full of surprises. First he jumps Jason in the rest room at Starbucks. Then he reveals that he’s into BDSM and encourages Jason to top him. Finally, despite his lack of experience with tournament play, Matt ends up facing Jason across the board in the semi-final round. When Matt throws the game he should have won, Jason is forced to confront his own feelings: about winning, about casual sex, and about Matt.

Why did you write this book?

Originally, I wrote this novella for a boxed set entitled Gaymes. The publisher envisioned this as a collection of sports-themed MM romances, but honestly I have little interest in football, baseball or most other physical games. When I suggested to the editor that I could write a tale about Scrabble, she expressed some level of disbelief. In a sense, I wrote this story to prove that I could.

I love playing Scrabble myself, so it was easy to identify with Jason’s and Matt’s passion. Their passion for the game, I mean! The characters popped into my head more or less fully formed: Jason, the tournament veteran, focused, self-confident and dismissive of serious relationships; Matt, the newbie, with his nerdy good looks and his secrets. Once I got started, the story wrote itself. However, I’ve revised and expanded it for this release, to highlight the romantic connection between the heroes.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read many genres, but I’m particularly drawn to science fiction and paranormal stories. I grew up on steady diet of Heinlein, Asimov and Bradbury. Meanwhile, all through my childhood my dad made up original ghost stories to entertain us. It’s not surprising that I love both genres as an adult.

The best scifi I’ve read in the past decade is The Windup Girl by Paolo Baccigalupi. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern might be the most enchanting and moving paranormal novel I’ve ever encountered. I recommend both of them highly.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s another hard question. Possibly Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle’s complete opus has pride of place on my bookshelves. I’ve read it so many times that I feel I know Sherlock personally. Meanwhile, he’s everything a character should be: uniquely fascinating, often admirable, but deeply flawed.

Playing To Score by Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #GayRomance

What are you working on at the moment?

My major WIP right now is The Journeyman’s Trial, the second book in my series “The Toymaker’s Guild”. This is steam punk erotica with some romantic elements, set in an alternative Victorian England. Gillian Smith, the nineteen year old engineering genius who’s my heroine, is one of my favorite creations.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Aside from The Journeyman’s Trial, I will be republishing a number of romance titles from my back list, including my multi-genre mega-opus Rajasthani Moon. That novel was the result of another personal challenge: how many different romance subgenres could I hit in a single title. It’s a steampunk/ menage/ paranormal/ BDSM/ Bollywood/ Rubenesque spy story!

I’m also planning to put out some boxed sets, including the full Asian Adventures series which will release next month. Most of my work is available in multiple stores, but my boxed sets are Kindle Unlimited.

Happy Birthday #14 Marketing for Romance Writers #MFRWauthor @MFRW_ORG #RLFblog #AuthorsKayelle Allen here. Marketing for Romance Writers started in 2006 and is still going strong. All services and membership are free.

It began because, like all my friends, I was promoting, learning more about promoting, and asking friends about promoting. All the ins and outs of book marketing were starting to gel and I was beginning to understand the overall concept. Even so, I had a constant list of questions. Facebook was two years old. Twitter had been founded that year. Pinterest and Instagram were four years away. How was I supposed to promote on social media? Did I need a blog?

So many questions

My friends all had the same questions, and we would email each other and ask. Often, I’d get the same question several times in a row. I found myself going back to my “sent” file to copy an answer and resend it. I was asking questions myself, plus I took time to go find an answer if someone asked and I didn’t know. Eventually, I got more and more questions.

It was Halloween, and I was busy with all sorts of details of writing, and I got the same question from two different people. I remember thinking that there had to be an easier way to do this. I needed a way to let everyone know what I’d discovered at the same time, and if I had a question, get an answer from someone who knew. Yahoo Groups was established and well-used, so I decided to create one that all of my friends and I could use together. We could post a question there, and anyone who knew the answer could reply.Happy Birthday #14 Marketing for Romance Writers #MFRWauthor @MFRW_ORG #RLFblog #Authors

I set it up as Marketing for Romance Writers because that’s what all of us were at the time. Our current members are not all romance writers, however. They come from all genres. Looking back, I’ve often wished I’d named it Marketing for Every Writer. Of course, then the initials would have been MEW vs MFRW and our symbol might have been a black cat!

In 2006, we had 12 members. Fourteen years later, we’re in the thousands. We now meet on IO Groups and our staff of volunteers produces a monthly magazine. We coordinate multiple blog hops to bring traffic to member websites, including Book Hooks and MFRWsteam.
