Out of Order
by Bella Juarez
Bella Juarez has a passion for writing and tells her stories with a high level of military suspense and erotic romance. A few years ago, Bella was an IT technician with a craving for military and espionage history and would devour anything, fact or fiction, about the subject. Today, she lives on a south Texas ranch with her family and dogs.
With stories of intrigue running through her imagination, she always dreamed of writing a novel. Finally, in 2012, she wrote and released Rapid Dominance, book 1 of the Black Ops Brotherhood Series. Since then, she has released five more novels in this series. Branching out, she’s written three erotic romance novellas all with military elements.
Her stories blend today’s headlines into thought provoking, intricate plots interwoven with razor-sharp suspense, intrigue, and scorching, white-hot romance.
Bella’s idea of a perfect day starts out with a run, followed by a pot of strong French roast coffee, to keep her going while she sits at her keyboard tapping away on another story.
Interview with Bella:
SR: So why did you want to be part of this anthology?
Bella: I was invited by the awesome Lori King to write for this project, and WOW, I was humbled. It was an honor to even be considered for the opportunity to write with some of the best authors in the genre. I was terrified and exited at the same time when Lori hit me to become part of the project. And certainly, to be in the same cadre with the likes of Lori King, Doris O’Conner, Julia Sykes, Jan Graham, Daisy Phillips, Sherri Hayes, Michele Zurlo, and the others was a fan girl moment. These ladies are authors I respect and admire. When you write with specific guidelines, it can be a daunting task. While it’s expected that your writer’s voice will set you apart, it’s interesting how we all have such creative differences in our stories. I whole heartedly feel that readers are getting a once in a lifetime deal from some of the best authors in the BDSM niche of the erotic romance genre.
SR: So tell us about your story Out of Order.
Bella: I hope readers enjoy the story. It’s a suspenseful story with older characters, early 40s. Why not let the blurb introduce the gist of the story?
Journalist Marianna Banta embarks on a search for a faceless drug lord who gunned down her husband and submissive. When Marianna follows the killer’s bloody trail to Tampa, she finds herself face to face with a man who could derail her quest.
Green Beret MSGT Lars Nielson has returned from the battlefields of the Middle East. Memories of violent, missions have taken up residence in his tortured mind, leaving him broken. He comes to Tampa on a secret quest of his own and finds a challenge. When he takes a job as a bartender at a local BDSM club, he becomes fascinated by the fine art of Shibari, and while tying the intricate knots, his troubled mind finds peace.
When Lars and Marianna meet at her family’s BDSM club, there is an instant attraction they can’t deny. Can Lars coax a lifelong Domme into the coils of his Shibari ropes?
SR: Can’t get away from black ops brothers, can you? LOL
Bella: LMAO, Well Lars is a black ops brother from another mother, he’s Army not Navy.
SR: How about an excerpt?
Bella: Of course! Adult or story?
SR: NSFW Adult – this is an erotic romance reader’s blog, you know.
Bella: As you wish…
Excerpt – Out of Order – Dominant Persuasions
“Shush, just hold me,” she whispered against his lips.
Without another word, Lars seized her in a hungry kiss. Liquid heat coursed through every inch of his being and set every nerve on fire when they connected. He slid his tongue along her upper lip, and she opened to him. He growled in response, sliding his hand up to her nape where he tangled his fingers through a handful of her hair. He kissed her deeper, exploring and savoring the taste of her. He’d hold her; he could spend a lifetime holding her. No other woman had ever had such a sudden impact on him as Marianna. Even though every rational thought told him to run the other direction, he defied it—just like a moth toward the flame that would eventually destroy it. One hand mapped her body while the other held her secure against him. He squeezed tighter, and her low, sensual moan let him know he was doing it right.
Wicked thoughts of fucking her once then leaving crept into his mind. She would be his undoing in so many ways. He broke their kiss. He had to stop before this situation went completely sideways for him. He cupped her face hoping she would be the voice of reason.
“Do you think this a good idea?” he asked.
“No, I get the feeling we’re both pretty fucked up.”
Who the hell was he kidding? He gripped her shoulder in an attempt to push her away. Once would never be enough. He had to muster his control and focus. He still had a job to do. Marianna dug her nails into his back and gently bit his lower lip.
It was as if she’d thrown gasoline on dying fire.
Something small and dangerous ignited the soul he thought he’d lost long ago. The simple act of creating pain and pleasure made him react in a way he never thought possible. Pushing logic away, he gave himself over to greedy lust. Resistance to her erotic call would be an exercise in futility and the slight pain of her nails with the bite whispered temptations he’d fought since seeing her casually sipping a glass of wine. She was the woman of his dreams, resilient and so taboo, a mystery to unravel and peel back layer by sweet layer. She was a woman who embodied sin and delight to a degree he hadn’t allowed himself to imagine was possible.
The call to his dark side was irresistible. He’d disregarded the appeal of what he’d seen at the club because he didn’t want to understand it. The honesty of it painfully pointed out the flaws in his relationships with women. In an instant, Marianna brought it all into crystal clarity. Submission and Domination were a beautiful dance of trust and surrender by both sides. Lars had been courting the wrong sort of woman. He needed a strong, determined woman who could take care of herself not a weak, co-dependent, manipulative bitch who used him to get what she wanted. He’d find a way to make this work and with a capable, intelligent partner he’d finally find the peace and happiness that had eluded him for so long. He’d give his queen the security she needed, and he hoped she’d give him acceptance he’d never had.
