A novel of erotic discovery and forbidden desire that goes beyond Fifty Shades of Grey.
Presley Flynn is ripe to experience her secret fantasies . . . and Dmitri Pratt wants nothing more than to fulfill them. Once inside the elite Club Sin in Las Vegas, Presley is nervous but excited—and determined to surrender to her every desire. Dmitri is her Master, and his touch is like fire. With each careful, calculated caress, he unleashes her wildest inhibitions, giving her unimagined pleasure.

Presley is different than the other submissives Dmitri has mastered. The BDSM lifestyle is new to her, and so are the games they play at Club Sin. From the start, Presley stirs emotions in him far beyond the raw purity between a dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.
CLAIMED is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

I want to thank Stacey for taking the time to answer a few questions for us here at the blog, I love her work so learning a bit more about her is great. Take it away Stacy...

How did you get into writing? Was it an always wanted to or it just happened?
The day I sat down and wrote my first book was when I realized I wanted to be a writer. Honestly, it happened just like that. I had no dreams of becoming an author, but my love for books came from reading after my daughter was born. She slept A LOT in that first year, so it gave me a lot of time to sit and read. Then a story came to me, and that was that—my love for writing developed!

This is a contemporary book, you also write paranormal do you have a favorite?
My first love is the paranormal romance genre. It’s my favorite genre to read and I honestly have a total blast writing it. I’m totally one of those authors who write because I have fun doing it. All of my books are written for my own personal enjoyment and it just makes me so happy that other people enjoy them, too. But I also love sexy contemporary stories, so I couldn't actually say I have a favorite. Usually whatever story I'm working on is my favorite!

What do you read when you have a chance?
I adore Katie MacAlister’s dragon series and Sylvia Day’s Crossfire novels. I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Lux series. Jeaniene Frost is an auto-buy for me and I adore the Night Huntress world, especially Vlad. But Keri Arthur is, by far, my favorite author and who inspires me the most. I love everything about her books; the mystery, the sexual tension and the fantasy elements. Her Riley Jenson Guardian novels were the books that made me fall in love with the genre. Now, I’m totally obsessed with her Dark Angels novels and just can’t get enough!

You stopped smoking a little while back how is that going?
Well, I'm not a non-smoker. If there is beer or martinis around, I always crave one or two. Let's just say, I'm a work-in-progress in that regard.

You are at Wendy's do you get the chocolate or the vanilla frosty?
Chocolate, of course. I have an addiction to chocolate!!

Stranded on an island with one celebrity who would it be?
Johnny Depp. I find him so interesting and I can only imagine I'd never get bored. Plus, he's nice to look at!

What does the future hold for Stacey Kennedy?
I’ve got a few things on the schedule right now. I’m currently working on MAGIC & MAYHEM #2, WITCHES BE DAZZLED, which has a release date of November 18, 2013. Then the next PACT OF SEDUCTION book will come out on September 24th. And we have BARED, CLUB SIN #2 to look forward to on January 21st. So, yes, lots and lots of stories on the go! FUN!

Claimed is the first book in a new series by Stacey Kennedy called Club Sin. I adore getting in on the ground floor of a great new series, I love to tell people all about the great new stuff coming out. This is a great new series :O)

Presley followed her boyfriend to Las Vegas only to find out he is a cheating scumbag, she is able to move in with a friend and loses herself in book after book of BDSM erotic romance. Her room mate, Cora, who lives the lifestyle discovers her friends reading preference and takes her to meet Master Dmitri. Will shy, innocent Presley be able to make the jump from her fantasies to the reality of Club Sin.

Ms. Kennedy does a fantastic job of creating characters that you can understand and relate to but also building a sensual and sexually tension filled story for the lives of the characters to play out. Ms. Kennedy also does a great job at explaining part of the BDSM lifestyle such as the difference and the importance of hard and soft limits, safewords and even the difference between a bedroom/dungeon Dom and a full time Master/slave relationship.

This story has tons of sexual tension, some smokin' hot BDSM scenes and two people who should be so different they don't match but find they have more in common than they know. Throw in a sassy fun room mate, 4 other sexy Dom's and a loser ex boyfriend and you have this great read that starts a series I will be following as they come out.
