Cara Carnes: Passion Next Door

Cara Carnes- Pleasure Brigade Book 1
Passion Next Door

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Once a month, Autumn Scott indulges in her voyeuristic fantasy thanks to a very sexy, very loud neighbor, who has no idea his encounters fuel her lust. Until she gets caught.Now Autumn finds herself exploring her ultimate fantasy—submission. But the stakes are raised when Kade presents her with a twist to his usual play. He wants to add three friends to the game. Together the four men indulge her naughtiest desires and prove the pleasure she’d experienced before was only the beginning.

Sitting down with the Brigade Masters is a little like trying to cage wild animals during mating season. Somehow it happened, though. They didn’t sit as much as prowl and loom—massive doses of testosterone laced with untold carnal potential. Interviewing them separately would’ve been ideal but—like everything else—this was a group activity that left no question they were in charge from the beginning.
Part 1

Cara: *looks around the immaculate office at The Brigade and runs her hands across the supple leather seat she’d been placed in* This is a very nice office. Very…masculine.

*the men grin and remain silent*

Cara: *swallows* Congratulations on the latest release. Why don’t you tell me about it?

Lorenzo: crosses his arms and smirks. Are you in a hurry to get rid of us, bella? Good things can’t be rushed. Let us start from the beginning.

Cara: *shifts uncomfortably in the chair with the startling realization the room had gotten much warmer* How did you all form the Pleasure Brigade?

Kade: *leans back in his leather chair and grins* The ladies inspired us. We’d all been pretty curious about the BDSM scene but found ourselves drawn to the women who needed more guidance. There was a need for a more private, personal approach to first-time experiences.

Lance: *shrugs* It was the girls. We wanted them. It made sense.

Cara: So the first book, Passion Next Door takes place in New York City. What were you all doing there?

Kade: Brigade Financial business brought me there one a month, which was why I had the place next to Autumn’s. *grins*  But you already know all about what happened with that situation.

Lorenzo: *shakes his head* I suspect that having Autumn next door had more to do with you going there once a month than business. We have video conferencing, after all.

Kade *smirks* Perhaps.

Cara: *nods* What inspired you to invite the other guys to share your night with Autumn?

Kade: I wanted my experience with her to be different than what I’d been sharing with the women she’d listened in on. I wanted her to know she was different.

Lance: You were scared shitless that she meant too damn much—even before you’d had a night with her.

Stryker: *groans* I really don’t want to think about the fact I missed out on that trip. And if Chase was here he’d have something to say about this. He still talks about that night.

Kade: *growls* He has no business thinking about that night.

The men all chuckle at Kade, who crosses his arms.

Cara: What one thing do you remember most about that night and Autumn?

*the men chuckle and I stammer* You know what I mean.

Kade: Her willingness to trust me and surrender fully to her desires. To mine.

Lorenzo: Her openness.

Lance: *grins* There’d be a fight if I answered that.

*Kade glares at him*

Cara: Quite a few readers asked why you didn’t pursue something more at that point. If she meant so much to you, why did you leave it up in the air like that?

Kade: I was a fool.

Lance: Fuck yeah you were. Thank goodness Chase concocted that hair-brain scheme to get Autumn here in The Brigade.

Kade: So he’s the one who needs his ass kicked.

Stryker: You really gonna go there and pretend you’d want to now, man? *stands to full attention and looks over at Kade* I’m afraid I’ll have to call bullshit on that and I don’t think the pretty lady here came to see that.

Kade: Point made.

Stryker: *leans back against the wall*

Cara: This seems like a great time for a break. *fans self*

Kade: All this talk has me wanting to go find someone. If you’ll excuse me. *Kade leaves abruptly* The other guys chuckle and follow suit.
Ooh, to continue reading this interview of the Pleasure Brigade boys you’ll have to wait until April 13th and visit HERE.
