I regularly receive requests to host new Authoress Spotlight’s . . . and of course it is always a pleasure to discover new writers and new books . . . but I don’t think I’ve ever been able to introduce someone as prolific as today’s guest, Skye Michaels.
In just a few years Skye has written 20 books and from the excerpt included here, from one of her latest releases, Vaughn’s Awakening, Skye certainly has a very vivid, and naughty, imagination.
Or . . . is it just imagination??? Skye is here to tell you more . . . !!!
After losing my job as a commercial real estate paralegal during the financial downturn in the real estate market in 2010, I was working some temp jobs in Miami which is a long commute. My daughter bought me a Kindle for my birthday to ease the long commute from Fort Lauderdale to downtown Miami.
Yikes! I had no idea what was out there not being a techie by nature. I read a ton of the erotic books and loved them. After writing legal documents for years I knew I could write an erotic romance. I read some more of them to find out what they said, what words were used, and how far they went. Pretty darn far! These books weren’t your mama’s romance novels!
Since there are no classes in how to write erotic romance, it was a learn-as-you-go adventure. I have now written twenty books. I can’t believe it myself. When I look at them, I wonder where all the words came from and I am amazed. I am approaching ONE MILLION WORDS. Yes – I’m a little weird and I keep track of that!
I started my first series, The LeClub series, with Calleigh’s Collar set in the glamorous horse world of Ocala, Florida. I finished the first draft in 17 days. Granted it was only 22,000 words. It and a second manuscript, Kelly’s Challenge, were accepted by Siren Publishing within three weeks. I was astounded, excited, terrified. Since then I have learned a lot from the editors at Siren Publishing. When I started, I had no idea what Point of View and Head Hopping were. That first edited manuscript was a shock.
I have since started other series: The Golden Dolphin set aboard a 300 foot mega yacht (currently 6 books with at least one more to come), and The Black Iris Club set in my hometown of Fort Lauderdale that tells the stories of four girlfriends who are either cops or attorneys. I enjoy writing (and reading) book series because you get to revisit some of your favorite characters and see how they are doing.
I love the BDSM genre, and have had some interesting conversations with people about it. I recently attended a writer’s conference given to educate writers about the lifestyle. I met some really terrific people there who live the lifestyle and learned a lot.
My heroines are all hard working professional women with lives of their own. Although I am writing about Dominant/Submissive situations, none of my girls are downtrodden or lack spunk. My heroes are all rich and handsome since this is Romance with a capital “R”. If we all wanted real life, we only have to look around us, not to romance books.
My latest series, The Black Dahlia Hotel, is a spinoff of The Black Iris Club, which will continue the Fort Lauderdale story with new and interesting couples. Book 1, Mikaela’s Debut has been released, and Book 2, Vaughn’s Awakening is coming out on September 29. Book 3, Melodie’s Song, has been accepted for publication and I am working on Book 4.
It’s an adventure, that’s for sure. Whenever I finish a book, I scramble for the next one. Once an idea is firmly in my head, I can relax again and just let it happen. I want my readers to feel like they have been to fabulous places and enjoyed a hot love affair with a fabulous hero, and always a Happy Ever After. I hope I can provide my readers with a little respite from everyday life as well as some fun and hot romance.

From “VAUGHN’S AWAKENING”.
He released her cuffs and picked her up. He walked to the silk chaise in the corner of the room and sat down with her in his lap. He settled her against his bare chest. “I wanted to get that out of the way, subbie. I like to greet my subs with a nice fanny warming. You do know that there is a difference between punishment and play. That was play.”
“That’s a hell of a way to say ‘hello’, Master. I don’t think I like it.”
“No? Let’s see.” He slipped his hand down between her thighs until he encountered her well-groomed pussy. Apparently she’d had a bikini wax in honor of the trip, and the area around her labia had been waxed clean. That was alright with him, but he really didn’t care for a full Brazilian. “Nice and damp, but not drenched, subbie. Let me see what I can do about that.”
He ran two fingers over her slick pussy, glanced over her clit, and she shuddered. It wouldn’t take much to tip her over into an orgasm, but he decided to wait. He wanted her to come on his cock. He began to skim his fingers between the lips of her pussy with a light pressure while he kept a firmer pressure on her clit. Soon she was shifting on his lap as she tried to increase the friction, and he felt the slick moisture begin to gather. “That’s better. I like my sub to be wet and ready.” He slipped two fingers between the lips of her pussy and rotated them until he found her G-spot. He rubbed the inside wall of her vagina, and she groaned. “Do you like that, subbie?”
“Do you want more?”
“Yes, Master, I want more.”
“What do you want? You have to ask for it.”
“I want you inside me, Master.”
He shifted her weight until she was astride his lap. He reached down and popped the buttons on his leathers. Ah, relief. His hard dick sprang out of the opening at full attention. He pulled her over his cock. “Rub that sweet pussy over my cock, subbie. I want to feel that slick honey.”
She began to stroke her hot, wet pussy over him with enthusiasm. “No coming until I give you permission. You have to hold back no matter what.” If anyone was going to have a hard time holding back, it would be him. The feel of her wet, slippery center contrasted with the short blonde hair cushioning her plump mound was exquisite. When he could stand the friction no more he efficiently rolled on a condom. He lifted her and brought her down on his hard shaft. “Work that fine ass, baby. Serve your Master.” Was that too much? She had blinked at that one. Well, she’d have to get used to submitting to his desires sooner rather than later. He reached around and slapped her bottom. “Faster.” She curled her fingers over his shoulders and began to ride him. He tightened his hands around her small waist and directed her strokes. Her bottom slapped against his thighs. “Harder.” She increased her speed and the length of her strokes.
Vaughn was flying. Higher, faster. She’d never experienced anything as hot and intense. Her ass and her pussy were on fire. She didn’t think she could hold back her orgasm. “Master, please let me come. I don’t think I can hold it.”
“Another minute, subbie. I need a little more so we can come together.”
She began to count backwards from one hundred. One hundred, ninety-nine, ninety-eight, ninety-seven, ninety-six… That was the only way she could concentrate on something other than the fire between her legs as she rode Paul with abandon. Eighty-nine, eighty-eight, eighty-seven, eighty-six. She was coming. She was coming.
She couldn’t stop the rush of heat that rolled through her from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. He followed her over the edge with a blast of hot cum as her orgasm pulsed through her veins. Finally she collapsed on him, her ample breasts cushioned on his ripped abs. She was breathing hard. She could hear her respiration and her heartbeat against his chest. A light sheen of sweat had broken out on her skin. He wrapped his arms around her and held her close.
“That was extraordinary, Vaughn. Just excellent.”
No man had ever said that to her before. She felt a glow of pride tighten around her heart. She’d always thought she was a little lacking in the sex department, that her lack of confidence in her body had hurt her performance. Well, Master Phillip Paul Proffit had blasted right through that barrier—with some encouraging words and a hot bottom. She snuggled against his warmth, and then she felt him reach behind and pull a soft black blanket over her body.
“Rest, baby. Just rest on your Master. We’re just getting started.”
When they had both settled down, Paul stood up with Vaughn in his arms and walked to the opulent bed he had seen her checking out with interest. He put her down while he pushed the decorative pillows to the floor, pulled the covers back and then stripped out of his boots and leathers. He had them both tucked into the comfortable bed in a minute with her spooned up against his chest. He relaxed. This was the part he usually avoided with subs because it led to unreal expectations on their parts, but with Vaughn it just felt right. She felt right in his arms. She was dozing but he was wide awake. He hadn’t felt such comfort with a woman in a long time. Everything about her was perfect. She wasn’t too small and dainty for his big frame, they complimented each other sexually, she was intelligent, and she was far from a doormat sub.
He didn’t enjoy topping a woman who couldn’t stand up to him when she needed to. The gift of submission given by a strong woman was priceless.
