[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning! Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Dawn Ryder] Takes orders from a parrot.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Out of Bounds?
[Dawn Ryder] I haven’t let Dawn Ryder out for a bit. She’s my naughty inner child and writes very erotic books. Out of Bounds is a merging of a great story and spice. Under my other pen name, Mary Wine, I love to write tales that are rich in details and twists and turns. Out of Bounds has this deeper story but all the fiery passion too.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your favorite scene?
[Dawn Ryder] “Sabra Donovan, analyst, master’s in bio fuels. Correct?”
It sounded as if he only added the last word as a courtesy. There was certainly nothing questioning in his sharp gaze. He knew exactly what he wanted and intended to get it. The pure abundance of confidence was mesmerizing.
“I think you have me at a disadvantage,” she muttered.
Pleasure flashed in his eyes. His lips twitched up just a tiny fraction, almost too faint to measure, but she saw it. In fact, she was sure he wanted her to notice. He wasn’t the sort who apologized for anything.
He was—and completely unashamed of it.
“I’m your boss.”
She stepped back, something inside of her recoiling. The hot curl of excitement was lingering in her clit, so she wasn’t really sure what it was she objected to, only that complete submission was out of the question. It wasn’t a conscious thought, but something she felt on a very personal level.
His eyes narrowed, somehow becoming more sensuous, more determined.
“Excuse me,” he offered softly. “Tarak Nektosha, your employer.”
She was a complete idiot. He wasn’t Japanese; he was Apache. Lawless, savage, and exactly like the line of vehicles his company produced.
“I require someone to help me cut the ribbon,” he clarified.
“Oh…” She glanced back at the waiting table. The press was positioned near it, their hands on their cameras, more than one was casting an impatient look toward Tarak. “Sure.”
As far as a professional response went, it lacked a lot. But saying “yes, sir” just seemed too submissive. A large part of her flatly rebelled. It was a system-wide rejection, one she was sure she hadn’t experienced before in her life. No man had ever unleashed such a bundle of emotions inside her.
Or so much heat.
Get a grip, girl…
And fast too. It was her frickin’ boss.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What gave you the most trouble with the story?
[Dawn Ryder] Getting Sabra to get past the fact that Tarak was her boss.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Dawn Ryder] Hummm…I guess saying my cell phone is a little too impersonal. So, I guess it’s an iced tea. I tend to live on it and always fill a cup before I get into the car.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name three things on your desk right now.
[Dawn Ryder] Iced tea, plot book-where I scribble down all my details about my work in progress, and a hand blown glass paper weight. It reminds me of a fire work, frozen in time.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be?
[Dawn Ryder] Angelina Jolie….that woman is insanely attractive. A total fem fatal.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] You have been granted the use of one superpower for one week. Which power would you choose, and what would you do with it?
[Dawn Ryder] It would be to clean up the environment. I’d spend that week blasting away ocean waste and water pollution and gathering up all the bits of plastic that sea birds are eating.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are some books that you enjoyed recently?
[Dawn Ryder] The Cross Fire books by Sylvia Day. Totally love them! I also read one Cynthia Eden’s and it was good!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?
[Dawn Ryder] On Face Book, the evil time vortex or through my website DawnRyder.com.
Power may be best when it’s shared…
He’s used to dominating…
Tarak Nektosha is a self-made man, against all odds. He accomplished that by making sure he’s the one in charge, both in the boardroom and in the bedroom.
She’s taking her power back…
Sabra Donovan has ambition to spare and energy to burn. So what if her last lover was a disappointment? She’s never going to be anyone’s plaything ever again.
Sabra’s outstanding performance at a corporate photo op attracts Tarak’s attention, and the lines begin to blur. What happens when the one on top surrenders and the one used to obeying begins to call the shots?
