Jenna's Consent (ADULT title) by Jennifer Kacey (VBT, interview and GIVEAWAY) GFT
I am delighted to have a mini-interview with the very busy Jennifer Kacey (and I was intrigued to realize that we share a couple of dream destinations!). Take it away, Jennifer...
JK: I couldn’t help but answer two questions for you guys. Hope you don’t mind the extra blah blah blah from my brain!!!
ELF: What was the most difficult thing to overcome on your path to becoming a published author and how did you conquer it?
JK: Knowing when to stop futzing with a story!! This is REALLY hard for me. Especially when I was brand new and I had something like 5 books I was trying to get published all at once. Without having the writing background a lot of authors have, and I mean the technical aspect of it, it’s hard to know when a story is good enough to actually send to an agent or a publisher. Not the answer I was originally going to answer but it’s so true for me! I was going to say rejection, but yeah, that wasn’t nearly as hard to conquer as knowing when a story was JUST right. Thankfully that’s something you learn over time, and hopefully getting writing buddies along the way that get what you write makes a huge difference.
ELF: What would be your dream place to visit and why?
JK: I want to do a lot of overseas traveling. I want to go to Europe. Paris specifically. I want to sit under the Eiffel Tower and write and have pictures to remember how I felt. What the temperature was like. The accents of the people all around me. Can’t wait to cross this one off my to-do list! But I also want to see the Tattoo in Scotland during one summer. I want to stay in a bed and breakfast in the highlands and sing all the songs from Brigadoon at the top of my lungs. Sigh… And go back to New York because it’s one of my favorite places. New York changed me. As a person, as a writer. Love that place. So…….okay that’s more than one place, but I have a lot of living to do!!!
Jenna's Consent is an ADULT title

Members Only, Book Six
Every night Jenna spends hours preparing submissives for their Doms at The Library. She encourages them, reassures them as they take a step into the forbidden and urges them never to settle. But when it comes to her own journey, she’s spent years hiding, trapped within the steel cage of her corsets. She can’t hide any longer.
Nick has wanted her since the moment he laid eyes on her but she’s always told him no. Until now. She agrees to be his submissive for a night but he wants more…much more. He unwittingly brings in the one man Jenna never stopped loving and, on the cusp of everything’s he’s ever wanted, he’s not the only one fighting for her heart. Ian can’t forget her…his Jenna. He walked away years ago, but not this time. This time he’ll settle for nothing but her complete submission. Three people unable to let go of the past must learn that love—above all else—is worth fighting for.
“You kept your hair short. For me. Good girl.”
She didn’t answer. She couldn’t.
Four years she’d waited to hear him call her that again.
He’d given the words to her when they were together. She’d become addicted to hearing them, knowing he thought she was good enough. His girl.
And then when he left—nothing.
Emotions swamped her.
Words were too complicated for her—and not complicated enough.
And she knew he didn’t need an answer.
He had loved her hair when it was long but when she’d cut it, he’d used her so hard, suspended in rope, that she’d worn his marks for weeks.
“You don’t have to braid it or wrap it up like you’re hiding one of my favorite toys. I can still grab it.”
He fisted it harder and she curled her fingers and toes, trying desperately to keep some part of herself aloof from him.
“So damn sexy.”
Ian was a sadistic bastard. He liked to bring pain. He wanted to see his girl suffer for him. Not because she liked it but because she didn’t and she still did it—for him.
Knowing that made his charming side so much harder to take.
Compliments and sweet gestures offered in his same no-nonsense style, but were that much more affective in their sincere simplicity.
Her mental discipline for following his commands was sluggish but the rest of her sure as hell remembered what to do. Jenna crossed her ankles and clasped her hands together, tightening her body as best she could.
He whipped the knife blade back and forth across her skin.
Slow—quick, quick, slow—quick, quick, as if it were a waltz.
