Intense Passions by Kalen Laurel Spotlight with Giveaway

Title - Intense Passions
Intense Series, #1

Author - Kalen Laurel

Genre – Adult Romance, Erotica with light BDSM

Brooke Anderson, a pretty, young manager in a Chicago consulting firm, finally sheds her boring boyfriend and is ready for a relationship that will grab her by the shoulders and shake her into consciousness. She could easily fall for Jack, an intense and handsome senior partner at her company. His passion for food, wine, and music is infectious, and his delightfully kinky sexuality threatens to rock Brooke’s world. But Marshall, a powerful but older CEO-type she meets also has an eye for her, and his dark sexuality draws Brooke closer with every turn. But is the man just too dangerous?

These two alpha males ultimately find themselves face-to-face in a testosterone-driven clash, but not before Brooke gets a taste of the mind-blowing emotion, off-the-charts sensation and unparalleled sexuality an intense relationship can bring.

Jack’s voice
“Brooke, it’s obvious that I’m extremely attracted to you, and it seems that you at least enjoy being around me. Part of that attraction is purely physical. God knows you’re a beautiful woman!” She dips her head at that and takes a breath to begin talking, but I interrupt her. “Please —hear me out.”

“Okay,” she murmurs in a small, nervous voice.

“But part of the mutual attraction has to do with the type of people we are, and how we recognize in each other that component which can complete us. I’m attracted to the part of you that is sweet, shy, and giving. And while you don’t need me to, I enjoy taking care of you. Likewise, you enjoy it when I take control and take care of you. Maybe not in all aspects of our time together, but at least some of the time. Do you agree?”

After a long period of silence, she finally lifts her eyes to mine and nods.

“I like controlling the sexual aspect of a relationship. It’s just the way I am. And it seems obvious, to me at least, that you take pleasure in that part of our new relationship.”

I adjust her so that I can see her better.

“A terrific way for people like us to explore their sexuality is through power exchange.” I can see I’ve lost her, as she’s looking at me with her head crooked to one side. “Look, Brooke, I’m not saying this right. I’ve never had to explain this before. But I’d like to show you how erotic it can be to let go of yourself, to try new things. Sane things. Consensual things. Do you trust me?”

“Yes,” she whispers. I tilt her chin so that she’s looking directly at me, and ask it again. “Yes,” she responds with more conviction.

“Brooke, all you have to do is tell me if you don’t like something, if it’s something that truly doesn’t feel good. Okay?” 
She nods, but this time it’s with a shy smile. “Does this mean that you’ll finally let me have my orgasm?”

About the Author
I’m Kalen Laurel, age 52, and I’m a mother, wife, mid-level manager, dog lover (and cats, too, but I’m allergic to them) and avid romance and erotica writer. Though I’ve written for years, I’ve just begun to be interested in officially sharing my stories with others.
I’m currently working on a novel about an unlikely couple who experience the ups and downs of getting to know each other’s sexual fantasies, limits, and compatibility. It’s mostly a love story with a bit of light BDSM. I hope to finish it this spring.
I decided to begin blogging in the hope I might find others willing to share their experiences, advice, and critiques with me.
