I was given the opportunity to grill ask Jennifer some questions about her writing process. Here are her answers:

What do you write? – Romance, romance, romance!!! All contemporary, most of it with some kink (OR A LOT OF KINK) and all of it hot!!!
What genre do you favor? – Erotic. I like being able to write a story and not have to worry about offending someone. Steamy and explicit and graphic is yummy and freeing and wonderful!
When did you realize you wanted to be a writer? – When I wrote a 120K novel in 3 months. I had a set of 3 dreams and had to know how it ended!
What do you think is the best way to publish these days? – Diversification is the only way to make it these days. Do anthologies with other authors. Self Publish so you have complete control over certain projects. Publish with publishers who have great editors and believe in your work. And write series. Series are amazing!!
What are your favorite genres to read? Why? – Kink. BDSM. Paranormal if it’s really well done. I like a mix! And I like to read what I write.
Do your characters talk to you? – When I’m writing a story I write “their” story. I need it to go from point A to Point B, but in actuality I need to go from Point A to Point J and I didn’t know anything about the other points in between. Some nights I’ll fall asleep so excited, wondering what’s going to happen next. Love that!
How do you approach starting a new book? – Write an outline so I know where the story is going to go. Then I feel like I know my characters. At least know them enough to be intrigued by them and want to learn more. If I’m there I think my readers will be there, too. Once I have that I’m good to go!
What is your writing process? – Write the outline, title it, character descriptions, arcs, romantic resolution, additional characters, series notes, etc. Then I start writing. And I only write what I want to write. I never write a story in order. Normally I have word count goals each day as well.
What are the best writing books or blogs you’ve ever read? – Face to face way better. I like talking to people who’ve been through the same thing. And body language makes a huge difference that sometimes you can’t “read” correctly in a non-fiction book. Conferences are awesome for this!
What are your non-writing hobbies, or what do you do to relax? – crochet, reading, movies with my son, vacations on the beach, kink clubs, coffee with friends, sleepovers. Lots of different things!
What was your best date ever? – No comment…*angelic smile*
Navy SEAL or cowboy? – Marine – OORAH!
Chocolate or chips? – Chocolate all the way!
If you could have a superpower what would it be? Why? – I’d want to fly. Have dreamed about it all my life. Would be amazing!
Fancy restaurant or picnic? – That’s hard!!! Umm….Picnic…on a private beach….with my two best friends.
Beer or wine? – Caffeine Free Diet Dr. Pepper
Favorite author? – JR Ward I think. Love her BDB series!
Smooth or hairy? – smooth for a girl / little bit of hair for a guy…mmmm….


Final Surrender

by Jennifer Kacey



Ten years ago, Angela Meyers told everyone she went to New York to find herself. It was a lie. She fled from the aftermath of one hot night with Clay Waters. A night filled with wet heat, all-consuming releases…then his regret.
Now, with a stalker threatening to destroy her career, there’s only one man she trusts to protect her. The man she still loves, hates, needs with every breath she takes.
It’s not that Clay never craved his best friend’s younger sister. With a ticket to boot camp burning a hole in his pocket, he couldn’t allow himself to love her. The moment he lays eyes on her again, the old need—to take down her tightly wound hair, press her long, lean body to his—surges inside him stronger than ever.
But this is no ordinary bodyguard assignment. The best way to identify the voice in Angela’s shadow is to lure it into the light of day. Even if it means convincing her to trust him with her heart…and surrendering his own.



Sneaking down her own hallway wasn’t exactly something she thought she’d ever be doing. Creeping past the guest rooms occupied by her brother and the man she lo—

Not going there.

A step creaked as she moved down the stairs and she immediately froze.

Holding her breath, waiting for them to catch her, made her feel guilty so she exhaled, making extra noise and stepped down to the main floor. This was her life and her home and, by God, Clay wasn’t going to show up and make her forget everything she had worked so hard for.

They were just being paranoid.

Kind of.

She hesitated again at the door and ran her fingers over the healing scar on her wrist. Her safety was important. She recognized that, but staying inside, shaking like a scared Chihuahua didn’t sit well with her either. It was only a block down the street to get a coffee and paper. She’d even bring them back something. A peace offering should appease him. Them. She meant them.

A note!

She should leave a note. She grabbed a notepad from behind the front counter, told them what she was doing and went back upstairs, leaving the paper on the kitchen table.

Feeling better about informing him of her plans, she didn’t hesitate as she grabbed the door lock.

The tumbler on the door snapped as she opened the door and relief swept over her. Being inside was awesome until you did it because you were scared.

She stepped outside, locked the door behind her and stood in the crisp morning air. After looking both ways to make sure no one was there, and listening to her Spidey sense…she snickered at her own joke and leaned back against the building.

Nothing seemed out of place. Fear didn’t close in on her. It was just a nice morning.

Yeah, okay, butt-crack-of-dawn morning, but it was past five o’clock so it counted. Barely. Close enough.

Closing her eyes for a second, she stepped away from the building and headed down the block. Birds were singing and the breeze smelled like honeysuckle.


Actually, there were cabs honking and it smelled a bit like garbage when the wind wasn’t blowing but whatever. She was outside and nothing was going to ruin her happy.

Lazily, she made her way to the coffee stand and Enrique greeted her as he did every morning.

“Hello, pretty fashion lady.”

She couldn’t help but smile. “Hello, handsome coffee man.”

He grabbed a paper for her and set it on the counter. “You haven’t been by the past few days. You okay? I worry about you.”

“Join the club,” she murmured under her breath as he filled a cup of coffee. “Can I get three today? And I’ve been okay.” Mostly not a lie. “Been really busy.” Definitely not a lie.

“But you were hurt last week, no?”

“It was nothing.”

He gave her a funny look. “Nothing doesn’t give you a bump on the head and a cut on your arm.” He patted her hand and turned around to make more coffee. “Three today. For you anything.”

“You say that to all the girls.”

“Yes. But for you I actually mean it.” He set the other coffees on the counter.

Adding cream and sugar to her coffee, she tried to laugh off his worry. “Sweet talker.”

He grinned from ear to ear, as he took her money and made her change. “You need help getting these back to your place? Hermano will be back in just a minute from making a delivery and he could help you.”

“No, no,” she told him, pocketing her change as she tucked the paper under her arm and lifted hers to take a sip. “This is awesome. Mmm…and I’ll be fine. It’s close.”

“If you’re sure.”


Enrique glanced over her shoulder and his eyes went wide.

“I knew I’d find you here.”

Angela whipped around, letting go of the first cup of coffee and it splashed to the ground. The man dressed in black, hovering over her, latched on to her wrist and yanked her toward him. The paper scattered in the wind and Angela screamed. Fighting the hold he had on her arm, panic took over and she lost her balance.

Hitting the concrete, she scooted backwards on her elbows and tried to get away. The lights above him hid his face and he kept advancing.

Something was in his hand.

“Clay!” she screamed for help, as her back touched the wall of a building.


She was trapped and the man kept coming.
