Book one in the Men of Passion Series: A contemporary erotic series about the passions and devotion of five men to the one woman who loves them all...
Kayla Saradon is a beautiful, respected psychiatrist who her friends claim has discovered the fountain of youth. Kayla wonders what her friends would say if they knew her secret is the polyandry lifestyle she shares with her four, studly "husbands" — each skilled in his own sexual specialty?
Then PI, Trey Sean Cameron, who is secretly investigating her lifestyle, explodes into her life. The ex-Army Special Forces operative raises emotions Kayla can neither control nor contain. Can Trey — a demanding and possessive lover — ever share in her lifestyle? If not, how far will she go to keep him?
Hi Kayla!! Thank you so much for stopping by! We really appreciate your time today!
Can you give us a little bit of background as to how you came into this particular lifestyle?
I was raised within a strict, ‘sticking to society’s rules in order to blend in with what is expected’ atmosphere and, being silently rebellious from as far back as I can recall, I hated it! I made up my mind that as soon as I felt released from those restrictions placed on me by my socially-conscience parents, I would live the life that was perfect for me, regardless of how others might view it – and as I researched the concept of polyandry, I believed it was the answer to life-affirming completion.
What were your first thought when you first saw Trey?
My first thought when I saw Trey was that he was the epitome of what a man should look like and immediately, my curiosity was peaked as to how he might perform sexually. That thought inevitably leads to provocative outcomes, don’t you think?
Do you hate or love the job?
I love my job when it comes to delving into the psyche of others and trying to help them resolve deep-seated issues. And what I hate about it is the fact that I am limited as to how I can help them in opening up to possible new avenues of life, without imposing my personal preferences.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Three words of self description? Hum, that is a tough one, without sounding like an egomaniacal individual. Wish you had asked for double-worded answers such as Self-sufficient and sexually-explorative. But here goes. 1) Uninhibited; 2) Adventurous and 3) Curious
What is your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is crossing paths with narrow-minded people who refuse to entertain anything contrary to what society has thrust upon them as ‘normal’.
What is something no one else knows about you?
Something no one else knows about me? That is almost too personal to answer. If I were pushed into a corner, guess I’d have to say that I sometimes feel like a small child, seeking love and acceptance of the real me – the me I effectively hide in order to conform. If you haven’t guessed yet, I HATE conforming.
Best date you ever went on?
Best date I ever went on was when I had dinner with Trey that magical day we met, and later went to his hotel room, spending hours disovering how compatible we truly were, sexually speaking.
At want point did you realize you were in love with Trey?
I realized I was in love with Trey when I could not get him off my mind, after just that one fantastic afternoon and evening of lovemaking. My feelings escalated the longer I was away from him. The longing to be with him – for him to be inside of me – became overwhelming and I had to admit that it was love, such as I had never experienced nor believed that I ever would! That was a revelatory moment, because I loved the guys in my life and thought they were all I needed. But suddenly I knew without Trey, life would be empty.
Is there anything about your relationship with Trey you would change (past or present)?
The only thing I would change about our relationship is the early contentious feelings that nearly destroyed us before we became an ‘us’. Hope that makes sense.
As always, she was met by her four “husbands” when she stepped inside. After kissing them all, she led the way into the living room and plopped down on the couch with a weary sigh.
They all could see she was mentally drained. In silent agreement, they decided to relieve her tension: Luke massaged the kinks out of her neck, Lee rubbed her feet, Harm brought her a glass of wine, and J.J. took her hand and sucked her fingers gently. He sat beside her to ask, “What can I do to erase the memories of the day, enamorada?”
“You’re doing it. All of you,” she said, flashing them all a tired smile as she took a long swallow of the wine. “I don’t know what I’d do without you—any of you.”
J.J. leaned to kiss her, before suggesting, “Why don’t we all relax in the Jacuzzi? Maybe that will wash away the lousy day.”
“Great idea,” Harm echoed.
“Dinner can wait,” Lee said. “It’s just leftover pot roast, anyway. Unless you’re hungry enough to eat right now.”
Kayla shook her head. “No, I’m not. The Jacuzzi sounds great.”
“Tell you what. Let us do everything tonight,” Luke suggested. “Undress you, position you in the Jacuzzi, give you a fresh glass of wine, then stand ready to offer whatever pleasure you desire to erase the day.”
“Sounds wonderful,” Kayla said laughing. “I’m all yours, guys.”
Luke disappeared through the patio doors to start the Jacuzzi while she allowed her other three “husbands” to undress her and then lead her to the inviting, bubbling, warm water.
Kayla’s mind was reeling with the delicious feeling that she had the greatest life one woman could imagine as she settled in the Jacuzzi and watched her handsome partners disrobe, then join her in compatible silence.
As always, Kayla marveled at how comfortable they all were with her and each other, the way a perfect marriage should be, but seldom was. In fact, as far as she knew from her patients and past experience with her parents, hers was the only such marriage in existence.
Knowing it was Lee’s night, the others positioned themselves slightly apart, deferring to him the coveted place next to her. She leaned her head onto his broad shoulder before tilting her head up to receive his passionate kiss.
“Sorry that damned job takes such a toll on you, hon,” he said tenderly as he pulled away.
“Some days are harder to get through than others. Lately I seem to resent them all, however. I’m thinking I must need a vacation.”
