bossing the boss cover

In the mood for a Piper Trace quick fix?? Free bedtime story!

“What are you going to do to me?”
“Anything I want,” Rob growled. “You’re always so demanding, Lauren, always in charge.” He traced his fingers down her back, leaving a trail of chills. “You drive me so hard at work. You have no idea all the things I’ve imagined doing to you. I’ve wanted for so long to make you submit to me. To demand things of you, but in my bed. You need this lesson. It’ll be good for you.”

Lauren is wound as tight as a spring—stingy with her praise, her emotions and her heart. The youngest VP of sales in the firm’s history, she’s far too busy to attend the office party, which means when her sleeve is caught in the shredder, she’s trapped, vulnerable, in the deserted offices.

Her best salesman, super hot and charismatic Rob, has a secret. His boss Lauren is always pushing him harder and harder, but in his fantasies, he’s got her under his control, completely.

Tied up, dominated, and satisfying his every sexual desire.

On the night of the big office party, when Rob rounds the corner of the file room in the deserted offices and finds his stuck-up and domineering boss bound and helpless in a provocative position, he can’t help his body’s natural and intense reaction.

Maybe it’s time for Rob to show Lauren exactly who’s boss.

How about an update?

Hey folks! I’ve been neglecting my blog. Let’s see. I quit my job to write full-time! WOOHOO! Sort of. I have young kids and a house that needs a lot of fixing up. But I can now write two hours a day! Hey, it’s something. I’ll have more time to write when all of my kids are in school. Oh, the life. I can’t wait!

I started another blog with my good friend and fellow romance author, Sydney Bristol. It’s a DIY blog for all of our extraneous habits that take place when we should be writing: Drop Dead Thrifty

In two days I get back the rights to Fueling Her Fire, a novella originally published by Ellora’s Cave. I won’t be putting this right back out for sale because I’m going to significantly rewrite it. Look for it again in the future!

I also secured the rights back to Come When Called, a novel I’ve spent the last five years writing. It’s so long and there are still some changes I’d like to make to it, so I’m releasing it as a seven part serial! I’m really excited about this! Just waiting on the cover…the first episode will be available soon!

More to come–I’m back!!

A Hot Little Treat to Tide You Over

My favorite Dom, Cj Lemire (@cjlemire) has threatened to get out his whip if I don’t start blogging a little more regularly, and since I do everything a dominant guy with a whip tells me to do, here I am.

I was pretty overwhelmed for a while… The normal stuff was there–working at my Big Corporate Job, raising two kids and writing–but then we threw in a 6,500 square foot monkey wrench in the form of what I like to call, “Broke-down Palace”. We bought a big, run-down home out of foreclosure, and it needed (NEEDS) a LOT of work! But any of you who follow me on Twitter (@pipertrace) know how much I love to DIY and build things, right?? Well, this house nearly broke me.

It’s one thing to have a few projects you’d like to get on…it’s another thing to have two-hundred projects you HAVE GOT TO DO SOON and you’re a little uncomfortable having your children live and sleep in this nasty home. So I’ve been a bit overwhelmed. But slowly we’re working our way through the unending list of chores and projects, and I find myself FINALLY being able to Tweet a bit more and, hey, even blog! So here I am.

Another thing that has suffered greatly from our home project is my current book that’s wildly overdue, Come When Called. It doesn’t help that this book is over 130K words long… Here’s the official blurb and a little eye candy:

Piper Trace Come When Called cover art


Evie has the same problem with men that she has with cheesecake – she’s always trying to cut back, but they’re just so damned delicious. But this time she’s in real trouble. Fired from her law firm, Evie must hide from her psychotic, lawyer ex-boyfriend until she can come up with the money she owes him.

Rich and dead-sexy Ford Lachance caused Evie to get fired by seducing her into being sexually dominated for the first time…in the law firm library. But he offers her the perfect solution: be his highly paid, live-in assistant for a year at his guarded estate, and in return he will use his considerable influence to get her whatever job she wants after the year is up.

But Evie’s out of her league in trying to keep up with Ford’s escalating game of domination and pleasure.

Charley is Ford’s best friend and his opposite – warm and affectionate to Ford’s cool, aggressive sexiness. Pleasing both of these virile men at once brings Evie mind-blowing satisfaction. But she makes the mistake of falling in love with them and Ford is incapable returning her feelings…and Charley’s.

As Evie and Charley both struggle with Ford’s denial of their love, Evie still lives in fear of her ex with good reason…and Evie, Ford and Charley find they must face their feelings and decide whether this threesome can work while fighting for their lives, and their love.


I’m editing this book right now and thought I’d give you folks a taste of it! So here it is…a brief excerpt from my full-length MMF menage erotic romance novel (with BDSM / master-slave elements). 🙂


“You kissed me,” Ford said simply.

“What? You mean earlier? Before…” She wasn’t sure what to call it. Before we made love? Had sex?

“Before we fucked,” he finished for her, without a hesitation given to his choice of vocabulary. “Yes, before that. You kissed me.”

“Uh, technically, I think you kissed me. I just kissed back.”

“Okay, so you kissed back.” He paused and Evie wasn’t sure there was more to the statement, but finally he asked, “Did you like kissing back?”

She pulled away to study him. Was this a trick question? She had nothing to lose by answering honestly.

“Yes, I liked kissing you very much.” Deciding to take a chance, she added, “I’d like it better if I could call you Ford.”

He looked bemused. “Why?”

“Because when I have to call you Mr. Lachance, and I kiss you, I feel like I’m kissing my boss.”

“You are kissing your boss.”

“I know, but I’m also kissing dead-sexy and charming Ford, and that’s who I really want to kiss.”

He pursed his lips, and she could see he was trying to hide his pleasure at her admission. “Ford,” he tested. “I’m not sure if it will work for me. Let me hear it.”

“Ford.” She smiled. It made her almost feel like they were friends.

“Hmm, I still can’t decide. Use it in a sentence please.”

“Okay,” she said. “Ford fucked me hard while he held me down across his desk.”

“Oh.” His eyes lit in a way that reminded her of that excited boy again. Pure and unadulterated elation. “That was a good sentence,” he breathed.

“I quite enjoyed it myself—the sentence, that is.”

“The sentence—of course,” he agreed, his face solemn. “Who would enjoy being held down and fucked?” He shrugged his shoulders.

She held up a finger. “By Ford—don’t forget that part!”

“Yes, exactly. Who would enjoy such a thing?”

She knew they were both teasing, but she felt compelled to make him understand. She wanted to find that sixteen-year-old boy in him and tell him he’s not alone and he’s not a freak. Tell him that normal, healthy, successful people have the same urges for sexual dominance as he does. And conversely, the urge to be dominated completely, like her. No matter what his father beat into him.

Taking his hand, she stroked along his long fingers while she kept her eyes down. “I would,” she said simply, her tone sincere.

He didn’t answer right away, but reached out with his other hand and raised her chin. She saw confusion in his eyes—confusion and what looked like the stirrings of hope. Funny, because that’s how she always felt around him.

“What?” he whispered.

The vulnerable look in his eyes gave her the courage to say it confidently, with no waver of embarrassment in her voice. “I enjoyed it—really, honestly loved it—Ford, when you held me down and fucked me.”

“The fucking part or the holding you down part?”

“Both. Together.”

He frowned for a heartbeat in what looked like disbelief, and then pulled her close without another hesitation and kissed her, long and deep. His lips soft, his tongue gentle, probing, almost shy. And he kept his eyes closed tightly, cupping her head in his big hands. When he finally stopped, he rested his forehead against hers, keeping his eyes screwed shut.

Finally he blinked twice, his eyes growing distant again, and thanked her for her time while helping her to her feet. His polite mask had slammed firmly back into place and the moment was gone.

She touched her lips as she left the room, knowing the last kiss had been different, and that knowledge sent butterflies of both joy and unease swirling through her belly.

Did you enjoy it? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

How to Make Smut Stew and Other Deep Interview Answers



Emily Cale is a multi-published erotic romance author and a fellow Ellora’s Cave author! She has an impressive educational background in creative writing, so it’s no wonder she’s been able to find so much success in publishing.

She’s published with Ellora’s Cave, Decadent Publishing, Breathless Press, Passion In Print Press, Evernight Publishing and Wicked Ink Press, among others.

I was so thrilled when Emily interviewed me for her blog! We had a fun conversation about how I got my break, where I get my inspiration, and my somewhat inappropriate advice to my sixteen year old self. Check it out! While you’re there, be sure to look at her long list of great books–Emily has written something for everyone.

You can find her latest work, Honeymoon Suite, a romantic and hot novella about newlyweds getting wild after the ceremony, here at Ellora’s Cave: Honeymoon Suite

Boobs & Books! I’m Featured on the BiblioBabes Blog!

The BiblioBabes, Kat & Cara

(Say *that* 5 times fast!)

I still remember when I first came across their website…the more I read, the more my jaw dropped. We were (as they put it) separated at birth! I wanted to tweet to them immediately with something like, “Hey, you don’t know me, but we’re soul-mates and I’m your new best friend and we’re moving in together.” But knowing that was just a *wee* bit stalkerish, I cleared my throat and instead tweeted something like, “Lovely literature site, ladies. Carry on.” Well, that’s probably not accurate, but regardless, fast-forward to now and it’s a mutual love affair as I knew it would be. 😀

There is just nothing I love more than smart, unapologetic ladies who also happen to love literature. Throw in dark, sexy, funny and proud of their amazing breasts, and count me as a full-fledged fangirl.

Now if you’re not already hooked at this point in my description, let me introduce you to a little bit of heaven that the BiblioBabes like to call “Naked Reading Sunday”… Every Sunday they post a picture of one of them naked or semi-naked with only the book they’re reading covering their bare chest.

It’s one of the rare moments I hate books. 😉

And here, they blog about ME!! Imagine how thrilled I was! Our New Friend
