How far would you go to help a friend? That is the question Willow Lawson must ask herself. After learning that her boss is being blackmailed for a past he left behind, Willow takes on the challenge to help him, having no idea what is truly involved. However, Hunter, the amazing man who has recently come into her life, does.
Hunter ‘Saint’ Murphy has done his time in the military, leaving him with scars that haunt his dreams. Being a member of the Celtic Demons offers him the brotherhood that mirrors the bonds he forged while in the service. Yet nothing he tries quiets the nightmares. That is until he meets Willow, the one woman who silences everything but his hunger for her.
Joining forces with the Celtic Demons, Hunter and Willow search for a way to help her friend. As they work together, they uncover a love neither one of them thought was possible and a deeper darker plot into the world of human trafficking.
Publisher’s Note: This steamy romance contains graphic scenes and a theme of power exchange.
He led her by the elbow to the double doors. “This is what I want to show you,” he explained as he opened the doors. He stepped out of her way and watched her face for her reaction.
Willow stood in pure awe at what she was seeing. Set in the center of the room was a huge four-poster king size bed, with two four-drawer dressers resting on either side. She walked further into the room, her breath becoming shallow as she gazed at the wall of BDSM equipment. A St. Andrew’s cross and spanking bench were to the left of the bed and, to the right, an oversized royal blue couch. She spun in a slow circle looking at the walls holding whips, crops, and floggers. “You weren’t kidding; you must have a piece of apparatus for every situation.” Her voice held an edge of nervousness.
He smiled at her attempt at humor. Placing his hands on her shoulders, he told her, “This is my playroom. If and when you are ready, we will revisit this room. Until then, I will answer any and all questions you may have.”
She looked into his eyes and asked, “What if I can’t be that person?”
“I am willing to wait as long as I have to, Willow; you’re worth the wait.” He leaned down and gently placed a kiss on her forehead. Pulling her body to his, he said, “I just need to know that you will keep an open mind about it?”
She wrapped her arms around his waist, replying, “I will keep an open mind, as long as this is kept private between us.” He looked down at her with a puzzled look on his face. “I’m not sure my parents would be so accepting of your lifestyle. That’s all I’m saying.” She then set an alluring smile on her face.
“Then, we have no worries. Because I don’t want a relationship with them.” Hunter kissed the top of her head. “Come, I have something else to show you.” Closing the doors behind them, he led her to the stairs. On the main landing, they continued up further.
1.) Where do you find inspiration for writing?
I like to add a bit of reality to my books. Topics like drugs and human trafficking. I also enjoy adding some kind of sport. Because I watch just about any sport played.
2.) What is your favorite novel?
This is a hard question because growing up I read so many different authors and genres. However, I have read two novels many times. The first is Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor. She puts such a different twist to the story of King Author and Camelot. The other, A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss. She brought to life my childhood fantasy in this book.
3.) What was the hardest part about writing Hunter’s Treasure?
Time for sure. We all love our families and want to help as much as we can. Yet, helping can definitely take time away from my writing.
4.) Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
I’m not sure if taking a cruise would classify as a favorite vacation spot, but it is my favorite way to vacation. You get to see multiple places; you unpack once, and no one has to be the designated driver.
5.) Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what kind?
I do, and I don’t. When I need to focus on my story, I like it to be quiet until I get what’s in my mind typed. However, if I need to block out the world while I write, I throw on my headphones. As far as what music I listen to, it’s very eclectic. Ranging from Country to Pop or Classic Rock to Love songs.
Character Interview- (asked by reader)
1.) Hunter, what was your first impression of Willow?
It impressed me with how courageous and strong she was. Being beautiful as she is didn’t hurt any either.
2.) Willow, has your opinion of Motorcycle Clubs changed since meeting Hunter?
I have to say my opinion was not too high considering how my sister Skylar and Reed argue. I always blamed Reed thinking the worst of him. Yet, after getting to know the members of the Celtic Demons myself, it has changed my opinion. I really did not understand how deep their loyalty to family is. The bond they share is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Now, I can honestly say I’m grateful to be a part of the Celtic Demons Motorcycle club through Hunter.
3.) Hunter, How has being with Willow affected your lifestyle?
It’s only gotten better. Being able to train Willow to be my submissive has been one of highlights of getting to know and love her.
4.) Willow, were you intimidated by Hunter’s BDSM lifestyle?
At first I was very nervous about Hunter’s lifestyle. I didn’t understand how a dominate and submissive relationship worked. Hearing the word submissive gave me the wrong impression of the role they play. Yet, Hunter has been very patient teaching me and if I‘m being totally honest. It’s been a very satisfying experience.
5.) Hunter, what are your most redeeming qualities?
That’s easy, honesty, loyalty, and humor.
You have to be able to laugh at a five-foot-three woman breaking the nose of a man six-foot-two purely by accident.
6.) Willow, in the writeup of your story the question is asked, how far would you go to help a friend? So, my question to you is, how far did you go to help a friend?
You will have to read the book to find that out.
