Cara Carnes- Author Interview
What book are you currently reading?
I’m shamefully behind on my reading right now. There are so many unread books on my Kindle Fire I think I hear it swearing from its perch on my nightstand. I’m pretty sure that if an unread story was a cookie my poor, defenseless Kindle has gained at least eight sizes the past few months.
I’m currently feeding up on my Kresley Cole addiction.
What’s the strangest (neatest, coolest, etc) thing you’ve ever done?
I’m a very dull person. Seriously. And sweet saints, my mom could be reading this. How the heck am I supposed to answer? I’ll get back to you on this one. *winks*
Who are some of your favorite authors?
OMG…this is like asking a mother to choose a favorite child. I’d definitely clone Lara Adrian if I could. Or carry her luggage around in the hopes of sneaking a peek at her WIP cause the woman will never write enough to satisfy me. Same with Kresley Cole and about a hundred others. It’s a minor miracle I ever get anything written with all the awesomeness already on the market from others. Remember that Kindle quickly expanding to an unprecedented size? This is why? hehe
What was your favorite subject in high school or college?
History. I LOVED learning about the different cultures and ancient belief systems. Incorporating some of the mythologies, traditions, etc. within my world building with a lot of creativity is one of the things I love most about writing.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
I love to read. Photography has always been an addiction of mine. I’m no Ansel Adams but I love scenery pictures. This is closely tied to my primary passion—travelling. This floating ball we’re on is a gorgeous place and I fully intend to see as much of it as I can. Hopefully I’ll get to meet some of you along the way. J
What are you currently working on, or what’s on the horizon?
*narrows eyes* Who told you to ask that? LOL…I shamefully have way too many coals on the fire and sometimes feel as though I can’t get anything finished. I have two different paranormal works, an erotic futuristic and two erotic contemporaries. Those are the ones I’ll confess to.:)
I tend to get easily distracted with plot bunnies as they go scampering through my head. So I pause what I’m working on to “scrawl” the idea down and three chapters later…Well, I think you can get the picture.
They all get done eventually. It’s just a battle for my attention until the end.
I can tell you the 5th Pleasure Brigade is in there at the top of the heap. And a turbo hot futuristic that I’m really enjoying a lot.

One night of controlled passion is all she allows.
Rebecca Ann Majors fled the temptation of a ménage once, but now the two sexy men starring in her wildest fantasy are back and demanding her complete surrender for the weekend. Emboldened by lust, she succumbs to her desire and learns ecstasy has a price.
They demand everything she has and more.
Joe Davenport and Dillan Morrisey were used to handling any situation—including the sexy siren who’d sashayed out of their lives two years ago. This time she’ll quench their lust even if it means they have to share her.
When Sunday morning dawns the three must decide if one weekend was enough to sate the passion they shared.
Excerpt 4- Rated R
Tingles burst across her skin on their way to her pussy. She writhed against the sheet and nuzzled her pillow with fervor. Warmth spread through her body like a molten stream of awareness as her mind slowly returned to live mode and took in its surroundings.
The pillow was a chest—a very broad chest rippling with ridges and contours she could spend an eternity licking. She moaned as the previous night rewound in her mind and angled need between her legs where the sensuous torment of tingles continued.
She thrust her mound toward the wondrous delight. A groan punctured the silence, but she couldn’t tell whether it was hers or his.
The recollection sent a shock wave bursting within her limbs.
“It’s about time you woke up.” Joe trailed a finger across her cheek. “We started without you.”
So she noticed. Her king-sized bed had never been quite so challenged. Joe reclined across the top, his back nestled against the headboard as if he were indeed a pillow. Her nightie had disappeared. Her legs were spread-eagled across the sheets.
And Dillan knelt there, his fingers tickling and tormenting her wet pussy. He leaned down and kissed her trimmed mound. “Finally, I can feast on you.”
His tongue slid across her wet slit, then thrust into her. She gasped at the entry, her entire body humming with the need for release. Her pulse spiked, her adrenaline surged. What a hell of a way to wake up.
Joe’s mouth slid across hers, forcing her attention to divide between him and Dillan as he tongued her pussy. Nerve endings beneath her skin burst as he kissed his way from her lips, down her throat, and to the swell of her breast.
Her hands ran down his massive chest and squeezed his arms. Her thighs clenched Dillan as he sucked on her clit. The surroundings disappeared in a sensuous haze. She writhed between the two men as the release carried her away from reality.
