Happy Holidays everyone and welcome to the day that rings in the madness!! LOL! I want to know that here on CEWTNK I am thankful for many things. The first being to my followers, fellow bloggers, and authors for being supportive and making this blog such a huge success! But a HUGE thank you to all the creative spirits that have shared something on this blog or have been featured on here as part of a tour or review. Your writing has touched me in some way and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the hard work that goes into each and every book you create!! Thank you!
To celebrate this happy day I have a newly introduced writing pair that has been on here before but has indeed captured my attention through their unique therapy!!!! I was lucky enough to catch an interview with them and here is what they had to say for THE RACK!
Hello and Welcome to The Dungeon! I’m so happy to have you here visiting and sharing your newest work. Don’t mind the noise from the prison… err guests, they get noisy during their…treatments..lol. Let me clear a spot so you can have a seat. Would you like some refreshments before you get started?
WR: Hi Nikki. I love what you’ve done with the place! Sort of a “Shriek Chic” motif. I’m fine for drinkies, but I could go for a croissant.
KS: Hey there Nikki! I do hope I can take a peek around when we’re done chatting. Never been in a dungeon like this before.
Tell us a little bit about your book.
Billionaire CEO of Blakely Incorporated, Natasha runs her corporation with an eagle eye for every detail. She’s an obsessive, compulsive, micromanaging hard-ass, consumed by the need to control every aspect of her life and her business.
But underneath that seemingly strong façade, Natasha is a swirling mess of anger, anxiety and sexual addiction. Only her therapist, Dr. Benson, knows how close she is to burning out...or exploding. He insists on a radical form of treatment – Submission Therapy – knowing that it’s her only hope.
Skeptical but intrigued, Natasha agrees to attend the first session. What she finds there is an erotically-charged environment that will forgive none of her habitual bad behavior. And a steely-eyed man who seems to read her every desire - even the ones she won’t admit to herself.
Will Natasha learn what it means to submit? Or will she allow her brittle pride to rob her of what she truly needs?
What first sparked the series idea?
WR: BDSM is not something people just fall into. At least, not if it’s their serious lifestyle choice. There are certain types of people who embrace submissive roles. And billionaire CEOs seem to fit the profile perfectly. We both pride ourselves on injecting realism into our individual stories, and that’s also true with these co-written ones. A desire to present an alternative view to a lot of what’s out there was a major part of the seed for this story.
KS: Willsin has really covered it. We like to provide a different angle on what is expected and make it as real for the reader as possible.
Who is the character that in your opinion everyone is going to fall in love with?
WR: I believe Natasha will be the one to win people over. She’s a complete bitch at the start, but she has her reasons. She’s stubborn, but quite aware of that fact. And as she gets deeper and deeper under Master Sweet’s thrall, she finds that change is not always something you need to force. It’s something you can actually embrace. Of course, I’m a dude, so I could just be reacting to the fact that she’s hawt!
KS: How can you not like Natasha? She’s got that love-to-hate her appeal. But, speaking as a woman, I wouldn’t mind being in Master Sweet’s dungeon. I’d love to learn a lesson or two from him.
I have to ask, what are the hardest scenes for you to write?
WR: For me, it was anything that involved fashion and accessories. I’m clueless about that stuff. I mean, I knew the name Louboutins, but had nothing else to work with. Any time I sent a draft off to Katie, I’d have little notes in there like [NEED A REALLY HIGH-FASHION HANDBAG FOR HER TO HAVE].
KS: I do love those notes Willsin leaves for me. And then I have fun “virtual shopping” online for the perfect outfit for Ms. Blakely. =) The hardest though for me are the scenes between Chloe and Natasha. I always find myself wanting to push her aside so that Master can have his fun. Willsin is excellent at bringing her back and making sure she is very useful though.
How would you rate the sex scenes throughout the series?
WR: They’re integral, since they’re a huge part of Natasha’s therapy. They’re intense, because they reach into the core of who she is. But physically, the only thing Natasha finds scary about them is how much they affect her.
KS: In the first installment, I would say we start off “tame” for the BDSM genre. Nothing too crazy, yet. Much like in the real world, no one jumps in full force, they dip their toes in. Natasha gets more than most in her first session, but she’s certainly not experiencing all that the lifestyle has to offer yet. That’s what the other two books will touch on. Of course, when I say tame, I am not talking plain vanilla sex, we do have some fun.
Are there any of these in your books? (Hands one of the toy boxes on the right which is filled with sex toys, whips, body creams, lotions, lubs…and whatever else you can imagine J)
WR: Oh, some of these essential oils are there. And this paddle here? It’s a lot like the one Master uses. Except his is covered in black leather.
KS: Willsin, quit hogging the box. I want to see!
Do you see yourself writing anymore stories in this series or a spin-off?
WR: This is actually Book 1 in a three book series. But we don’t anticipate taking it beyond those three books at this point.
KS: Occupational Therapy is set to release November 16th, and Immersion Therapy will release at the end of November.
Are any of your characters reflective of you?
WR: Certainly I have elements of Natasha within me. The need to control situations around me is strong. Perhaps I could benefit from some Submission Therapy myself.
KS: I too relate more with Natasha than anyone else. There is that need to control everything around you and the stress it creates within your body. That’s where I think we all can relate on some level. If only we had Master Sweet to teach us, right?
Tell us about some up and coming books.
WR: First and foremost, we have the second and third books in this series. Currently titled “Occupational Therapy” and “Immersion Therapy”, they’ll both be coming out over the course of November. Three books in a month!
Where can we find you for future updates? (add all your social links here)
I’m so happy you have made this a stop. Would you like a tour of the…err…levels? J I can introduce you to the “guests”, if you just hand me that box back.
WR: Box? I don’t recall any LOOK OVER THERE! SOMETHING SHINY! No, no box at all...honest.
KS: Hmph! I didn’t get to play with the box.
Let’s get you suited up:
Wine, mixed drink, or straight up? WR: Bourbon and cola.
KS Have any Vodka?
Leather straps or chains? WR: Leather straps. They retain heat but don’t conduct it!
KS: Leather for me, please.
Cat-o-nine, braided leather, or chain length whip? WR: Braided leather, for the detail work only, of course.
KS: Oh, the Cat-O-Nine, please.
Collar and Leash or Adornment? WR: Oh, a collar and leash is just fine, thanks.
KS: I’m not a fan of the leash, but some Adornments might be pretty.
Leather studded bodysuit or corset top? WR: Um...I don’t really have the boobs for a corset top, so I’ll go the bodysuit.
KS: I do love a nice tight corset.
Fishnets or garter-belt? WR: Garter belt...but they both taste lovely as I rip them off with my teeth.
KS: Garter-belt, please. I was never a fan of fishnets.
Leather pants, mini, or a long skirt slitted up both sides? WR: Pants for me. I don’t want to wax my legs.
KS: long skirt!
Lace up boots or high heels? WR: Boots.
KS: Oh yea, a nice pair of F**k Me boots!
Ball gag, manacles, or blindfold? WR: Mmm...another tough one. I suppose the blindfold.
KS: I’ll go for the manacles.
The rack or the whipping post? WR: Whipping post. It somehow feels more personal.
KS: That’s a toughie. I can’t decide.
Candle wax or clamps? WR: Candle wax.
KS: let me try those clamps.
Blonde, red-head, or Brunette? WR: Brunette
LOL...As you can see they have a wicked and playful sense of humor ..Now lets take a look at the newest book in the series: Occupational Theraphy!
Write a 300 word (or less) blurb that focuses on the main characters and the plot conflict. This isn’t a plot summary. It’s a sales synopsis. Think sizzle. If you read it, would YOU buy the book?
Natasha’s experience at the hands of Master Sweet has left her both drained and enlightened. Wanting nothing more than to curl up against him for as long as she can, she is dismayed when he sends her home to dwell on all she’s learned.
But being a creature of habit, Natasha’s stubborn and rebellious nature leads her back into her old patterns, threatening to undo all her progress. When her symptoms return in full force, she begins to doubt not only the effectiveness of Submission Therapy, but also the motivations of her Master.
Learning of her disobedience, Master Sweet brings forward Natasha’s next session. But recognizing her behavior for what it is - a cry for attention - leads Him to change His approach dramatically. If Natasha thought her first lesson was hard...she’s in for a real eye-opener.
Does the embattled billionaire have the internal strength to earn back her Master’s trust? And how will she handle it when his intentions suddenly become even more serious?
Now write a 200 character (that’s letters and spaces, not words) blurb for your book. This should be a reduction of the longer blurb, and state the hero, heroine, and central conflict in a single sentence.
Master Sweet’s discipline leaves Natasha feeling enlightened. But old habits die hard, and she soon doubts everything about Submission Therapy. And that’s when the real test begins.
KEYWORDS: Please give keywords for your book. Do not repeat words. Keep it under 250 characters (that’s letters and spaces, not words)

I heard her walking away for a moment. When Chloe returned she pushed my feet wide apart. She clamped something around my right ankle, then my left. I risked a glance down between my legs and was surprised to see padded cuffs connected to a three-foot steel bar. I shivered as Chloe secured the rope to an eyelet in the center of the bar.
No matter how much I tried to squeeze, I couldn’t bring my knees together. My most tender parts were not just on display; they were completely vulnerable. If it was Master back there I didn’t think I’d mind at all. But of course, it wasn’t.
“Raise your face. Look at me,” Master commanded.
He sat on the edge of the bed, His crotch swollen so much that it was impossible to focus on anything else. It was right there, only inches from my face...but completely inaccessible to me.
“You like what you see.” He mocked me with His taunting tone.
Hell, yeah, I did. I flicked my eyes up to catch His for a second. He held my gaze with those penetrating blue eyes, but reached His hand out towards Chloe, who scurried over to take it. She kissed it, placed it on the back of her neck...and started unfastening His leather pants!
I ground my mouth around the smoothness of the ball gag. The red-headed minx was touching my Master! My body trembled with anger, the way it did when assholes tried to fuck me over in the boardroom. But at least in business I could speak. Here I was mute. Because He willed it.
Why? Why wouldn’t He put me over His knee again? Why, when He knew how wet it made me, how sweet it would be when He drove His cock inside me?
Chloe finished stripping Master and walked back past me. He sat back on the edge of the bed, His cock at half-mast, pulsing with every beat of His heart.
A Little More about the authors:
Willsin Rowe falls in love with a scent, a playful expression or an act of casual intimacy more easily than with physical beauty. When confronted by any combination of those elements he is a lost cause. He has done many things over and over, done even more things only once, and half-done more things than he cares to admit. He loves to sing and doesn’t let his voice get in the way. He is intelligent but not sensible. He is passionate but fearful. He is not scruffy enough or stylish enough to be cool.
Christmas time in Brisbane is always so hot and muggy you could drink it from a bowl.
Brett Freeman feels the heat like anyone, but for more than 15 years it’s been nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with Corinne. Only one thing stands between Brett and his perfect woman: her husband, Darren.
Despite that stumbling block, Darren and Corinne consider Brett their best friend. They’ve watched in despair as he’s tossed away good relationships simply because, in his mind, no woman could ever compare to Corinne.
Then, one muggy Christmas Eve, a friendly visit takes a bizarre turn. Secrets are shared, an incredible present is offered, and for Brett, life will be changed forever.
Every beginning comes from an ending.
The Three Day Hump
Luther has a solid career as a lawyer and is married to a famous lingerie model. His life has grown comfortable, and he can’t remember how it felt to truly want something…anything.
Opal is young, debatably single, and has lived a life poor in everything but experience. She exudes a lush darkness and it draws Luther to her.
He suddenly remembers desire.
Their flirting turns physical; lust turns to obsession, obsession to addiction. They can’t see a future, but they can think of nothing but the present. They don’t know how to stop, they only know they need to.
An urban myth tells that three days of abstinence will break the back of an addiction. They hole up together in a hotel for a long weekend.
Can their addiction be beaten? Maybe. But first, they need to make it over the three-day hump.
From the fun and frivolous to the poignant and deeply personal, this collection of flash and short erotic fiction has a little taste of everything. Tales of crossed paths and crossed lines; of fate and fancy; changes, chances and choices.
With flash stories boiled and brewed until only the essence remains, and longer works that simmer and spit, you’re sure to find something to tickle you right where you need it. And with author commentary before each story, you could call this the director’s cut!

This is a great series. Occupational Therapy is book 2 and you need to read these in order. A lot of exciting things happen in this book. Natasha actually starts to understand what her Master is trying to show her. Sometimes it takes extreme forms of therapy to heal, and in Natasha's case it would seem so. You follow along her progress and failures and see as dawning finally comes over her. But did her Master move too soon? What he offers Natasha maybe more than she can handle. I really am anticipating the next book. Not only is this series page-turning, but also extremely erotic. I eagerly await the conclusion and the address where I can get a Master like this!!!
