Title – Intense Passions
Intense Series, #1
Author – Kalen Laurel
Genre – Adult Romance, Erotica with light BDSM
Brooke Anderson, a pretty, young manager in a Chicago consulting firm, finally sheds her boring boyfriend and is ready for a relationship that will grab her by the shoulders and shake her into consciousness. She could easily fall for Jack, an intense and handsome senior partner at her company. His passion for food, wine, and music is infectious, and his delightfully kinky sexuality threatens to rock Brooke’s world. But Marshall, a powerful but older CEO-type she meets also has an eye for her, and his dark sexuality draws Brooke closer with every turn. But is the man just too dangerous?
These two alpha males ultimately find themselves face-to-face in a testosterone-driven clash, but not before Brooke gets a taste of the mind-blowing emotion, off-the-charts sensation and unparalleled sexuality an intense relationship can bring.
Jack Walsh has obsessed over the pretty young manager in his Chicago consulting firm’s logistics department since the day she transferred from the Denver office, and when they collaborate on a high-profile project, her proximity awakens a passion for life and living that he hasn’t felt in years. He’s prepared to shed a wife and joust a boyfriend to win her attention, though she could be too young for him and too innocent for his proclivities.
But passion isn’t fueled by angst or discovered through logic. It is a product of the separate fantasies, foibles and feelings of human beings that, when combined, generate mind-blowing emotion, off-the-charts sensations and unparalleled sexuality. Book one of the Intense series reveals the life events that have made Brooke and Jack who they are and what they need. Now we get to watch as they discover themselves and explore each other in the pursuit of Intense Passions.
About the Author
I’m Kalen Laurel, age 52, and I’m a mother, wife, mid-level manager, dog lover (and cats, too, but I’m allergic to them) and avid romance and erotica writer. Though I’ve written for years, I’ve just begun to be interested in officially sharing my stories with others.
I’m currently working on a novel about an unlikely couple who experience the ups and downs of getting to know each other’s sexual fantasies, limits, and compatibility. It’s mostly a love story with a bit of light BDSM. I hope to finish it this spring.
I decided to begin blogging in the hope I might find others willing to share their experiences, advice, and critiques with me.
“What would you think if I asked you how your sex life is?”
Jack laughs. “I’d probably turn you over my knee and give you a good spanking.”
An image of me, bent over Jack’s knee—my jumper pulled up to my waist, my ass cheeks exposed and targeted by his open-faced hand—flashes in my mind. My face is now burning, and I am conscious of the fact that my jaw has dropped and I am staring at him with wide eyes, unable to utter a word.
His smile fades slightly, but he still sounds authoritative. “Perhaps I should be calling out ‘Bingo’ or ‘Jackpot’…I seem to have hit a nerve.” He shifts forward in the chair and leans closer, lifting his right hand to my face, gently lifting my chin with his fingertips while caressing my cheek with his thumb. The energy from his touch travels through my body and focuses itself in an urgent shiver between my thighs.
