Henley, the head of cyber security at Blaine Technologies, is a man no one crosses. He watches employees constantly, using his network of cameras, and enforces his rules by any means possible. Rumors of his violent past, along with his scarred hands and huge size, have resulted in his being feared by everyone … almost everyone.

Katalina, the new intern, worries about the revelation of her most painful secret much more than she fears her sexy boss's wrath. She sees the loneliness in his dark eyes, feels the gentleness in his marred fingers, tastes the need in his kisses … and she knows he watches her. His silly rules about not stripping for the cameras and no sex at the office are destined to be broken.

Kat likes to be watched. Henley can't look away. Will this beauty be able to tame her beastly boss?

Not only did I enjoy The Seen Trilogy, by Ms. Sax, but I was THRILLED when I found out that we were getting a HEA for Henley, who you will see featured in The Seen Trilogy (which I suggest you read...not that you need to if you want to enjoy FLASHES OF ME, but that I think you will soooo enjoy the Erotic Trilogy).

As far as Henley goes...I am 100% #TeamHenley ALL THE WAY!  Not that this is a romance with a love triangle, I am just all about this Beast of a man...and I love that Kat knows all the ways to break down his walls in such a short amount of time.  These two are true soul mates, and you see that from the first meeting.

Ms. Sax writes erotic romance with emotion, and so much passion, and some KINKY destinations for the "love makin"...brings new meaning to copy room!  Erotic fans will truly enjoy FLASHES OF ME, and while you are waiting for the 18th to roll around, grab The Seen Trilogy, and have a frisky Valentine's Weekend!


Interview with Cynthia Sax

A Tasty Read: I am so thrilled to have Cynthia here to hang out with us today!Firstly, I must ask, where do you get your ideas from? Especially for THE SEEN TRILOGY (A Favorite of mine)
Cynthia Sax: One hot summer night, I was looking at the neighbor’s gorgeous empty pool and thinking “It would be so easy to jump the fence and take a swim.” That got me to thinking (which is always dangerous) about who would do that. Why would she do that? This is how I met Anna, the heroine of The Seen Trilogy (He Watches Me, He Touches Me, He Claims Me).
The idea for Flashes Of Me originated from my personal reaction to bad news. I try my darnedest to pretend the unhappy events have never happened. Kat, the heroine, moves across the country to maintain this illusion. No one knows her in LA. They don’t know whether or not she’s telling the truth. And as the story is told from Kat’s point of view, readers don’t know the truth either.

ATR: Do certain characters speak to you throughout the writing process demanding their own book, or did you have FLASHES OF ME and the Upcoming BREAKING THE RULES already plotted out?
Cynthia: I never know what will happen next in a story. I only see one scene ahead of the writing. I watch the story unfold as I would watch a movie, frantically writing down everything I see.
So many reading buddies asked for Camille’s story that I knew I’d write her story (Breaking The Rules).  I thought that would be the follow up to The Seen Trilogy (He Watches Me, He Touches Me, He Claims Me). However, Kat and Henley demanded that I write their story (Flashes Of Me) and Camille was having too much fun breaking the rules to settle down.

ATR: What is next for Cynthia?  What are you working on now?
Cynthia: I’m totally stoked to share that I’m writing a 12 novella (100 pages each) serial for Avon Impulse. It is another sexy contemporary erotic romance, this time set in Chicago, and it will be releasing, one novella a month, starting in July. I can’t yet share many details about this project but I will say that I’m SUPER excited about it. It is fresh, different, and when the first story releases, reading buddies will realize why it could only be written in 12 installments.
I don’t write serials because they’re hot. I write them because that’s the best way to tell certain stories.

ATR: If you could give one piece of advice to Aspiring Writers, what would it be?

Cynthia: Stock up on Nutella! Muses love Nutella. (grins)
On a more serious note… fit the format to the story. Flashes of Me could only be written in first person from the heroine’s point of view. The Seen Trilogy (He Watches Me, He Touches Me, He Claims Me) is best read as a serial (3 novellas instead of 1 novel). These are tools. Use them to enhance your stories.  
 ATR: Sex Scenes: Easy or Hard to write?  Do you have a ritual to get in the mood?
Cynthia: I LOVE writing sex scenes. I’ve taken many workshops (Angela Knight’s online sex scene workshops are a must for any erotic romance writer), learning how to increase the sensuality of my scenes. Every sex scene is different because every couple is different and every stage of their relationship is different. This makes them both interesting and challenging. 
I don’t have a set ritual to get into the mood. Sometimes I’ll listen to music and match the tempo with my words. Sometimes I’ll stare at the ceiling, willing the words to come. Often the sex scene is a natural progression in the relationship and it flows from the previous scene.

ATR: Do you have plans, or have you written any other genre aside from Erotic?
Cynthia: I started (in my pre-publish days) writing with the bedroom door shut and I found it impossible to tell the romance between two healthy modern adults without showing what happened in the bedroom. Sex changes a relationship. Men, especially, often show their feelings during lovemaking. To hide that from readers seemed unfair. It felt as though I was telling only half of the story.
I’ve written contemporary, SciFi and paranormal erotic romances. I’m extremely happy with these three subgenres for now but who knows what tomorrow will bring!   

ATR: Valentines Day is tomorrow, what are Henley and Katalina's plans for the evening?
Cynthia: Shhh… (whispers) Don’t tell Kat but Henley is planning to take her to an amusement park. He’s determined to win her a giant plush unicorn. Kat will be wearing a darling pink suit from one of her beloved designers. Pink IS her favorite color. She’ll also be sporting completely impractical shoes which means Henley will likely end up carrying her everywhere. Luckily he’s big and strong, well able to manage this sexy task.

ATR: Since this is A Tasty Read, do you have a favorite Valentine's Treat? (Dessert, Treat, Candy)
Cynthia: Like Kat, I love chocolate-covered strawberries. Oh, or better yet, strawberries dipped in Nutella. Or simply Nutella, eaten straight from a jar with a spoon. Yes, I’m a simple gal.
ATR: Thank you so much for hanging out today!!
Cynthia: Thank YOU so much! (big hugs)
