Sue's Seduction





Sue’s Seduction
By Saylor Storm 
Genre: Mystery/Romance Contemporary

Middle aged, overweight, depressed and lonely, Susan Kent, becomes part of an anti-aging clinical trial and is offered a lease on life. She swiftly transforms into a budding beauty. Her new found tender age brings opportunities, lovers and tragedy. Sue’s youthful path takes her on a journey that she never could have imagined and catastrophe brings sobering consequences. Sophisticated attorney, Roger Grayson, enters her life and saves the day. In the end does Susan choose youth or the promise of love?




Hello Readers!

Today I’d like to introduce you to Saylor Storm, author of Sue's Seduction. She’s telling us a bit about her latest novel,  and her writing.


Please say ‘hi’ to her in the comments so she knows you stopped by!



Please tell us about your newest release and where the idea came from.

Sue’s Rapture is the second book in my Sue’s Journey Trilogy. The idea for the trilogy came when I learned about an anti-aging product that is currently on the market. I thought it would be fun to turn the product into a reverse aging product and have an ordinary middle-aged woman reverse 35 years as a participant in a clinical trial for the pill.

What age did you discover writing?

I was quite young, an early teen when I started writing quite a bit of serious poetry.

Describe your writing style.

My writing style is clean, straightforward and imaginative.

What’s the most challenging aspect of writing? Easiest? Most rewarding?

At the moment I’m working on making my stories more descriptive, so that would be the most challenging for now. Coming up with new ideas is the easiest part for me as the ideas never top flowing! I love it when people tell me that they took one of my books on vacation at it offered them a completely relaxing escape from reality for several hours.

Who has influenced you most as a writer?

I read all of John D. MacDonald’s books while I was growing up and I believe they influence my writing albeit subconsciously.

What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received about your writing?

A friend told me that he read my books to his mother as she was dying. They apparently offered her some relief and enjoyment in the last days of her life.

What’s the highlight of your career to this point?

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by my local community and the overwhelming support they have given me.



About Saylor Storm


Saylor Storm takes something from real life and turns it into something fun, and perhaps a bit twisted. Reality becomes fantasy, or is that imagination turns into real life experience? Her stories include places where she has lived or visited from the beaches of Malibu to Islands of Fiji and destinations in between. Love and passion are at the root of her novels; after all isn’t that what life is all about? Storm is a long-time resident of beautiful Lake Tahoe.

TEMPTATION BY STEVE GENIS BLOG TOUR 22nd October to 31st October

SYNOPSIS 
Temptation (Book 2)

Life couldn’t get any more complicated for Rick. He's going through adolescence and coming to terms with his sexuality, which he hides from his parents.


Meet Mr Devereaux, Rick's PE and French teacher who Rick can't stop thinking about. To complicate matters even more, Mr Devereaux is married to the principal of the same school.


As Rick comes to terms with being a young homosexual man, he fantasises about what it would be like to be with an older man. After sneaking into his teacher's office and almost getting caught out, Rick realises that his fantasies and urges are beginning to take over his life.


One night, at dinner, Rick's father comes home and reveals some news that sends shockwaves through Rick. His father has just received a promotion at work and has been offered to relocate to London, England for one year, with all expenses paid.


Moving to London would mean that Rick would be away from his friends and Mr Devereaux and ultimately, he tries to convince his father to allow him to stay in Australia and live with relatives while he and his mother move to London. His father refuses, leaving Rick no choice but to pack up his life and go with them.


When they arrive in London things are far from easy for Rick. After finally settling into a new English school, Rick makes some new friends including Nate, who is openly gay.


Together Nate and his friends convince Rick to go to a local bar. There he meets Jared, the owner of the bar, who is drop dead gorgeous, gay and he happens to be an older man.


Rick starts spending a lot of time at the bar on weekends with his new friends, and soon, sparks fly between Jared and Rick.


With Mr Devereaux on the other side of the world, Rick has finally found another older man who happens to be gay, but is he the older man that he wants?


Rick's temporary life in London is cut short when he suddenly becomes seriously ill and must return to Australia to make a full recovery before he can return back to school. However, it takes Rick longer than anticipated to recover from his illness and unfortunately, having missed out on too much school, he must repeat the school year when he fully recovers, making him the oldest student in his class.


Will Rick finally have a chance with Mr Devereaux?


Temptation is the second book in The Obsession Series, and a prequel to Obsession.

EXCERTS FROM OBSESSION

‘What’s your first name, Sir?’ I asked.
He looked at me and smiled.
‘It’s Jacques,’ he said in that accent of his.
‘Jacques,’ I repeated.
‘I hope you don't mind me asking sir, but do you have any children?’

‘Well, there is nothing for me back in London so I thought maybe I’d start a new life here in Australia, you know, make a fresh start and all that jazz.’
My heartbeat was racing, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. ‘Are you serious?’ I asked him, horrified.
‘Yes.’
‘Jared you’re a fucking idiot.’ That's all I could say.
‘Excuse me?’ he replied, completely flabbergasted.
‘Sorry, but you are, you gave up a perfectly good life in London for what? Why, Jared, why would you do something like that?’

‘What ze fuck are you doing, Rick?’ he asked me, obviously shocked.
‘I’m sorry, I really am. I don’t know what came over me,’ I said as I leant forward and kissed him again.

‘I’ve been wanting to this body for the past five years and now I finally get the chance.’ I started sucking again.
‘You know you were right about one zing.’
‘What’s that?’
‘You definitely can give a better blow job ‘zan my wife,’ he said as I placed his cock in my mouth and started sucking again. ‘Now I know what you’ve really been doing all ‘zose times you missed class,’ he continued.

‘Hey Kyle,’ I heard one of them ask. It was Josh’s voice,
‘Yeah?’ replied Kyle.
‘Do you reckon Rick’s gay?’
I froze as I sat there with my pants still down to my ankles listening to what they were saying. I suddenly looked down and realised I had left my bag on the seat outside. My heart sunk.
‘What?’ I heard Kyle reply.
‘Why would you say something like that?’
‘Well, just something I saw the other day at camp, that’s all,’ Josh said, as the two of them continued to urinate at the urinal.
‘What did you see?’
‘Well, while we were all in the main hall playing pool, I walked outside to go and use the toilets. I looked over and saw, Rick looking through the door to the bathroom in the cabin.’
‘So?’ Kyle replied as I heard him zip up his pants and flush the urinal.
‘He had his pants down to his ankles and he was jerking off.’ Josh finished and he, too, zipped up his pants and flushed the urinal.

Elle J Rossi grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by great people, a huge family and more animals than she could count. Sadly, there were no vampires or shape shifters lurking about in the woods behind her house. What's a girl to do? Seek them out, that's what! The sights and sounds of the world beckoned, so she left her small town to escape into a creative world full of music - and hopefully rendezvous with a vampire or two. As a full time singer she was able to lose herself in a thousand different songs in a hundred different places, all the while scanning the crowds for those ever-elusive beings of the occult.

After meeting the love of her life and settling down, she yearned to find a new and fulfilling creative outlet. Overly fond of the happily ever after, she wondered what it would be like to have her own characters lead her down dark and twisted paths. The very first word on the very first page sealed her fate. She'd found a new love. She'd found her escape.

Now along with weaving haunting tales about the journey to love, she's creating cover art for authors around the world and loving every second of it. For fun, she cranks country music to take her back to her roots, and sings karaoke anytime she gets a chance. Her husband, two children, and three cats that rule the roost keep her company along the way and guarantee she doesn't get lost in the enchanted forest. She wouldn't have it any other way. And, yes, she is still on the lookout for real-life vampires.
