..Alexander Sterling, what would you like to tell readers about yourself?
......* As you know, my name is Alexander Sterling, and I am a lifestyle Dominant, as we as the owner and master craftsman of Sterling Toyworks. *winks* But don’t get my wrong, the kind of toys I make aren’t for children.
..Are you happy with the way people perceive you?
......* Most of the time. I appreciate that my colleagues respect me, appreciate and support my craft, but since the death of my last submissive, many treat me with kid gloves. Afraid to even mention my late partner or delve to far into any subject that might be personal. *shrugs* It can dig at my alpha male tendencies at times. I’m not made of glass. Eventually, life has to move forward.
..Does your author ever try to take over the story? And how do you deal with it?
......* Of course she does. She may claim to be submissive in nature, but she is also quite stubborn. However, I refuse to kowtow, as she well knows. Plus, Miss Brennan has a weakness for men with shaved heads and tattoos, so, I generally get my way when it really matters to me.
..If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
......* Intimidate her bosses into letting her off the hook for the IT needs of her office and get her ass working on writing full time. She is missing her true calling, to my thinking. There aren’t enough good BDSM romance authors out there.
..Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you hope to accomplish?
......* I’d like to see my company grow. Not too big, but if you aren’t pushing yourself forward, you risk going backward. I’m also quite intrigued to see where things lead with Beth and myself. I’ve missed having a full time girl, so we’ll have to see how this all shakes out.
..Now for some author information!
......* My author is R. Brennan.
......* R. Brennan is a subbie brat with a bitch streak, a single parent, and a reformed gaming addict. She works FT as an IT geek for the state of NY and lives in the rolling hills of Upstate NY (you know, where it takes a ten minute drive to buy a gallon of milk and the scent of cows linger in the air). When not reading or writing steamy stories, she enjoys spending time outdoors or travelling with her family. She admits to a slight twitter addiction and a love of all things pirates.

..A look into the story
......* Beth plans to take it slow, and certainly doesn’t expect to meet run into the ultra-dominant Alexander Sterling, whose BDSM inventions are the stuff of local legend. Yet, somehow, he manages to convince her to be the test subject in his spanking demonstration. Strapped into his newest invention, Beth learns quickly there is more to him than a sexy, shaved head and form-fitting leather pants. In fact, Alexander Sterling just may be her masterful perfect match. ..
......* A tingle of warning crept along her spine. Used to? Curiosity reared its head, overtaking her good sense. “Why doesn’t it anymore?”
......* “My submissive passed away three years ago. Brain cancer.”
......* If she could have crawled under the table at that moment, she would have. “I’m so sorry.”
......* Alexander lifted a belaying hand. “Please, don’t be. You couldn’t have known. I knew when I stepped back into the lifestyle there were bound to be questions.”
......* “I still shouldn’t have stuck my nose where it doesn’t belong.”
......* His eyes sparkled when he smiled, accelerating her heart rate. “Well, then I have the perfect way for you to make it up to me.”
......* Beth flashed him a dubious look. “Really now?” His grin was infectious and she returned it with her own.
......* “Really.” He reached out and grabbed hold of her hand, sending shockwaves of heat up her arm. “Come with me.”
......* Alexander led her to a crowded table at the center of the room. Keeping her hand clasped tightly in his own, he asked the young woman at the table if they were ready.
......* Ready for what?
