His Forbidden Submissive -- out now from Ellora's Cave
To find happiness, she must do something she swore she’d never do again.
Let a man control her.
After beating cancer, Vivian goes on a mission to cleanse her life. First on the list, kicking her cheating, controlling husband to the curb. Second, discovering the answer to a question that’s been haunting her. Is the love she harbors for Brock, her bad-boy brother-in-law, genuine or a chemotherapy-induced illusion?
Brock loves a woman he can’t have. His brother’s wife. To claim her would be a betrayal. He knows loving her is wrong but he can’t help it. So when circumstances bring them back together, he can no longer deny his forbidden attraction, and they unite in a fury of passion, lust—and bondage.
But Vivian isn’t prepared for Brock’s BDSM lifestyle, no matter how sexy he looks with his tats and leathers. After ten years with a controlling husband, submission is terrifying—but so is never being with Brock again. Submission or freedom? No matter which she chooses, her life will change forever.

Vivian scrutinized Brock’s expression. Jaw slack, eyes wide, forehead bunched. Oh yeah, she’d shocked him. Good. She just hoped she hadn’t shocked him too much. Because she wanted Brock Michaels, and now that she was a—mostly—free woman, she would have him.
She’d set her plan into motion, and she wasn’t backing down now.
She stepped so close to him the tips of her nipples brushed his chest. “So what do you say, Brock? Do you want me?”
“No. I mean yes. I mean—shit.” He cut around her and lumbered to the nearby bay window. He kept his back to her with each step, but with so much at stake, she wasn’t about to let him get away so easily.
She followed him, slipped her arms around his waist and snuggled against his back. It was like hugging a steal beam. “I want you, Brock, so if you want me too, all you have to do is—”
“I can’t, Viv.”
“You’re just upset with my brother, and you want to give him a taste of his own medicine. Not that I blame you. Eugene could use a big, heaping helping of asswipe. But you don’t really want this, Viv…”
His voice dropped nearly two octaves, and his last sentence came out so garbled she wasn’t sure what he’d said, but it sounded like, Not the way I do.
Doubt doused desire. Was she making a mistake? Was Anne right? Should Vivian simply be upfront with Brock, tell him she loved him and see what happens? After all, since her arrival, he had shown signs of genuine affection.
But then those emotions had turned cold again, a little voice reminded her.
She closed her eyes, held him tighter. She didn’t know what to do. All she knew for sure was she’d passed the point of no return. She was standing on the outskirts of The Promised Land, and she couldn’t turn back now.
Not this time.
In the end, she decided to speak from the heart. “I do want to hurt Eugene. I won’t lie about that. But there are other reasons I want to be with you.” She pushed to her toes and kissed him between the shoulder blades. “Reasons which don’t have a damn thing to do with that bastard or how he hurt me.”
Without her permission—or maybe with—her hands slid down his belly and she palmed his cock through his worn jeans. His erection filled her hand and then some.
Brock groaned, a long, deep sound that made her insides shiver. His hand covered hers where she held him and he pressed himself more fully into her.
“Viv.” His resolve seemed to be crumbling, but she wasn’t about to get overconfident.
She kept pushing. “I’ve wanted you since the day we met. Did you know that? You drove up on that loud-ass motorcycle, wearing a leather jacket and tattered jeans, and my insides just melted.” When he didn’t protest, didn’t push her away, she popped the button of his jeans and confident fingers wrenched open his zipper. “But I stayed faithful to Eugene, kept my feelings for you inside. But now I don’t have to. I’m all yours. Completely and one hundred percent yours.” She slipped a hand inside his jeans, wrapped her fingers around his thick shaft. “All you have to do is say yes.”
He leaned more deeply into her palm. “I want to but, but, but…” He grunted. “God damn it, Viv, it’s fucking hard to think with your hand on my cock.”
“Would you prefer I had another part of my body on your cock? Like maybe my mouth?”
“Mmm, you’re playing with fire, baby.”
“I don’t mind getting a little singed.”
Joining Brandi today on Character Chat is Brock Michaels, Dom and co-owner of the BDSM club Restrained Fantasies. And more importantly, he’s the heroine from her Ellora’s Cave novel His Forbidden Submissive. So without further ado, here’s Brandi and Brock...
Welcome Brock! *takes a moment to absorb the site of the bad-boy, tattoo-covered wall of muscle across the table* Thank you so much for dropping by to chat with me. I had such a great time telling yours and Viv’s story. I’m so thrilled to have you here. And just in case I haven’t said it enough, I’m honored you two trusted me to tell readers the story of how you wooed—and restrained—your forbidden submissive!
*winks* Thank you for having me, Brandi. You were a blast to, um, work with. *wags eyebrows* Viv thought so too. She kept going on and on about you, so much so that if you were a dude, I’d be seriously worried.
Sorry! I just got so into yours and Viv’s story. It was so emotional. And hot. Oh sooo very hot. Some of the things you two did—or more precisely the stuff you did to her. Damn! There wasn’t enough cold water in the world to get me through that first “real” BDSM scene y’all had in one of the club dungeons!
*grins and makes Brandi’s stomach jump into her throat* I’d offer to help you out with your, um, frustrations, my pet, but I don’t think Viv would like that too much. Perhaps I can send over one of the other Doms from my club…
I’ll get right on, sweetheart.
Brock Michaels, you're such a tease! *works to calm raging libido* As much as I like thinking about the other Doms I met at Restrained Fantasies, we’re getting a bit off topic. What do you say we take a few moments to introduce readers to you and Viv? In a few words, tell us about your forbidden submissive.
Describe Viv in just a few words? Damn, Brandi, talk about starting off an interview with a hard question. Let’s see…well, for starters, she’s vivacious and full of life, which considering what all she’s been through recently is amazing. About two years before the start of the book, Viv was diagnosed with uterine cancer and almost died, and her fucking ass-hole of a husband—
Easy on the language there, big boy. I let you get away with that in the pages of your story, but let’s keep things more PG-13 for the audience.
Sorry. Just thinking about that ass—um prick—just pisses me off to no end. Not because of the way he’s treated me but because of the way he treated Viv. She deserved so much better than him.
And now she has better. You!
*that wickedly sexy grin makes a comeback* She does indeed.
