Pleasure knows no bounds . . .

Gwen Hamilton is always looking for a thrill. Not even running a secret BDSM club can fulfill her true desires. It's only when she's backstage at a rock concert and attracts the eye—and experienced hands—of guitarist Mal Kennealy that she finds that perfect combination of danger and excitement she's been craving. Calling herself "Excrucia," she revels in his uncompromising dominance each night. And yet by day, he knows her only as Gwen, his new escort for public appearances.

Excrucia blows Mal's mind with her enthusiastic submission to his harshest commands. Even though he has a reputation for never seeing the same woman twice, he can't help being tempted by the woman willing to fulfill his every fantasy. And when Mal discovers that Gwen—the sweet arm candy designed to soften his surly public image—is really Excrucia, he never wants to let her go. Finally he can indulge his absolute power. But dancing too recklessly on the razor's edge could cut deeper than he bargained for . .

I wasn't here to play demure, good-girl Gwen. I marched up to the coffee table, put my hands on my hips and announced, "They told me you like to play with fire." I tossed my flame-red hair for emphasis.
He let his eyes travel up and down me slowly, as if he were drinking in every detail from my black lambskin boots up the fishnet stockings to my denim cutoff shorts, tank top, and fake tattoos. (Well, I had one real tattoo, but he couldn't see that one.)
His voice was low. "The question, my dear, is whether you like to play with fire."
"I'm game," I said, thrusting my chin into the air.
His smile warmed slowly. "Are you? Everyday sex bores me."
"I'm not an everyday groupie," I answered. Well, that was certainly the truth, maybe too close to the truth? My heart rate sped up as I worried he might see through my ruse. That would be humiliating.
Just how far as you going to let this go? A little voice in the back of my head was asking. You can chicken out anytime, I told myself. I decided I'd leave as soon as he got too rough. If he grabbed me or manhandled me, I'd tell him it wasn't my thing and walk out. That wasn't my kink and that was the truth. Otherwise, I figured I'd play along and see what happened. Wild child, I thought to myself. Wild child.
"Lose the shorts," he said.
I swallowed, my cheeks reddening as I realized he was about to see my underwear. My silly, peach-colored cotton underwear, not the slightest bit sexy, but I hadn't exactly planned to show them to anyone when I'd left for the audition that day. Maybe I should just run away now…
But I wasn't ready to yet. I didn't want to. I put on a bit of a sneer, unbuttoned my cut-offs, and let them drop.

My Thoughts
Wild Licks, the second salacious story in the Secrets Of A Rock Star series; introduces readers to so much more than your everyday rock star romance.
When the secretive and sultry Mal Kenneally meets the lovely Excrucia, backstage after a concert.  The brooding British bad boy finds that he is attracted to so much more than her svelte and supple body, flashing eyes, and flaming locks.

No, the attraction for him goes so much further than surface beauty, thoughts, or even words.
And when a simple challenge turns into a perfect pairing in pain laced passion.  Our sadistic songbird is sure that he has found his pain loving princess.

For socialite and heiress, Gwen Hamilton, being able to slip in and out of roles has meant anonymity and freedom.  It has also given her the chance at an acting career free of her family's influence...and one night with Mal.

When a quirky twist of fate and a few not so gentle nudges from his band's publicity team, his best friend, and Gwen's sister, bring the two together as the new "it couple"; in an effort to soften Mal's image.  They are forced to put a very tame public face on a very wild private attraction.
An attraction that borders on obsession when Mal learns that the prim and proper Gwen, is also the painfully prurient Excrucia.

 Cecilia Tan takes erotica to brave new heights.  Daring to explore the fascinating and frightening world of true S&M role play, and sub/dom interaction with a true to life honesty and realism that few authors dare pen.
Always seeking to find the perfect balance between story and sex, light and dark, fiction and reality.  Cecilia is always careful to present the good, the bad, and the sometimes very ugly aspects of her characters, their lives, their pasts, and their play.
Giving readers a respect for both Gwen and Mal as people, outside and apart from the glitz and glamour of their 'high profile' lives.

Painting their eroticism with the same revealing brush.  Ms. Tan takes readers from the giddy euphoria of pain edged play.  Through the search for reality within the fantasy.  All the way to love...whips and chains included.  Of course!  All while never allowing readers to lose sight of the drama laden lives lived outside of the fantasy.

Get ready for a story of pain, pleasure, passion, and proclivity that is sure to take your heart captive.
