Welcome to my blog!
Join Kayelle Allen as she interviews her character, Koo Ayakura, from the new book Keeper of My Pleasure. This BDSM romance from Ellora’s Cave features a female Domme who is older than her hero.
About the Book
Keeper of My Pleasure features a recent college graduate, Koo Ayakura, who hires Rai Whethen as his attorney after thieves total his car and then dare to sue him. She wins, and takes him out to celebrate. Dinner leads to the hottest sex in his life, and a long-term relationship as her submissive. He adores the way she makes him feel, and the way she makes him burn. He longs to show her he has more to offer. He has a heart, and it’s hers, if only she’ll let him give it. A successful attorney in her late thirties, Rai has a penchant for handsome young men with long hair. Koo, her newest client, becomes more than her usual boy toy. He likes being tied up and whipped, and he yields the way she’d always dreamed. But he has a future ahead of him, and she’s a jaded lawyer. He wants sex, not love. Right? He wouldn’t stay with her forever. She trusts him to submit. To keep Koo, Rai is going to have trust her heart.
Interview with Koo
Kayelle: Koo, I know you met Rai because you hired her as an attorney. What was your first impression upon meeting her?
Koo: Her secretary ushered my father and me into her office, and when Rai shook my hand, she looked me right in the eye and held my gaze for a long minute. I about swallowed my tongue. My first impression wasn’t how beautiful she was — although it was certainly my second. My first was “Wow! This woman is powerful.”
Kayelle: In what way?
Koo: She’s intense. She looks at you with this steely-eyed gaze, as if she’s looking right down into your soul. I would not want to be the bad guy sitting across from her at the table. There’s something about her that lets you know if you lie — she’s going to know it before you even finish speaking.
Kayelle: You said your second impression was that she was beautiful. Tell us about that.
Koo: In that first meeting, I had a hard time paying attention to what she was saying. She asked me a few questions and had to repeat them because I kept thinking “OMG look at this gorgeous woman. And she’s talking to me!” *laughs* I’m sure she thought I was a space drift or that I was on something. I remember thinking that I hoped my father was paying attention so I could ask him what the hell happened later.
Kayelle: Thieves had stolen your car that you and your father rebuilt. Tell us about the car.
Koo: It’s a 1963 Jaguar XKE in cherry red, and it’s the most beautiful car in the world. Not just to me. This car is in multiple lists of the one hundred most beautiful cars of all time. I’d saved all through high school to buy a car, working two jobs, and finally bought it when I graduated. Of course, when I got it, it was in deplorable condition. My dad helped me strip it down to the bare bones and rebuild it from the ground up. It took us almost two years. The day it was stolen, I had driven it to Piedmont Park to drop off some books for a friend, and I turned it off, hopped out, ran over to the part where my friend was standing, and handed him the books. He said, “Isn’t that your car?” and I turned just in time to see two guys driving off in it. It happened fast.
Kayelle: The car was retrieved, right?
Koo: I called the cops immediately, and I had a tracking device on it, so it was easy to find. But those jokers tried eluding the cops, and took a turn too fast. They crashed the car, and were injured. I could not believe it when they sued me, saying if I hadn’t left the keys in the ignition they wouldn’t have been tempted to steal it. That’s when I started asking around for a lawyer.
Kayelle: And met Rai.
Koo: Exactly. *leans back* I hated seeing my hot red beauty get torn up like that, but thankfully, something good came out of it.
Kayelle: So what’s next for you and Rai?
Koo: *smiles* I don’t know. But I’m sure you’ll think of something.
