~ Synopsis ~
It started with waking up in a strange place.
It ended with everything that I thought I knew coming into question.
Now, I’m watching love turn into hate, bend turn into break and lies turn into truth that hurts worse than the deception ever did.
Such is my life, The Wicked World of Willow Masters.
~ Excerpt ~
I raise my head to look at her as I punish her nipples with my fingers, tweaking and pulling them until her mouth drops open. “I wish this room was full, full of every guy that has looked at you and wanted to come inside you. Full of every man that you’ve dated and let touch you. I want them to watch me bare every inch of your skin. I want them to watch me kiss and lick and bite and suck you until you’re marked. Marked by me. For me. I want them to know that you will always be mine. Some part of you will Always. Be. Mine. You know it. I know it. And they would know it.”
Those words, just saying them aloud, makes me feel violently possessive of her.

Describe Ebon in Five Words
E- Eloquent. I find that he can express himself very well, even in his own mind.
B- Bound. He’s bound to Willow even though he doesn’t fully realize it. But I think, in this session, he’s beginning to.
O- Oh-so sexy. I love the image of Ebon. The way he speaks and moves. God, he turns me on!
N- Naughty. Deep down, Ebon is very, very dirty. And I foresee him unleashing more and more of that with Willow.
Describe Willow in Five Words
W- Willful. Willow has been repressed and now that she’s coming into her own (over a guy, no less), I think she’s very willful.
I- Independent. She’s fought hard to get where she is. You get to see a bit more of that in this session.
L- Liar. We all know she’s becoming very adept at lying, but I’m not sure I could call her a liar in that most malicious way. I think she is a girl who got caught up in her own damage control and turned a molehill right into a mountain.
L- Loving. For all her faults and bad choices, Willow loves and she loves hard.
O- Ornery. We are going to see a bit of this in her and I, personally, can’t wait!
W- Weathered. When she comes out of this hurricane, she’ll be weathered, but she’ll be stronger for it.
The Challenges of Writing a
One of the biggest draws (and eyebrow-raising) aspects of Teaching Willow is the twisty romance between Ebon and Willow. How do you walk the line between the creating a romance to root for? How do you keep readers on Willow’s and Ebon’s side among all the lies?
I hope I’ve kept them cheering for Ebon and Willow because, at the root of all the resistance and deception and crazy choices, is love. Plain and simple. Willow knows she loves Ebon. She never intended to have him this way. It is just a series of bad choices and intense emotion that led to a cascade of worsening problems. And Ebon has deeper feelings for Willow than what he’s willing to admit, even to himself. I want to see them weather this storm just so they can come out on the other side and be rewarded for all that they have suffered. I hope that readers feel the same way, because the end will be very satisfying. wink wink
