âWAITING ON SUMMERâ by BELLA SETTARRA
âCollar and Cuffsâ Book One
He can dominate her body, but he canât control her past...
After fleeing to Miami to escape her junkie ex-boyfriend, Summer Marsden finds work as a waitress upstairs in the swanky restaurant and gentlemenâs club, Collar and Cuffs. Although she loves the job, her big mouth gets her into trouble. Intending to resign before she causes more problems, she finds herself face-to-face with the enigmatic and dangerously handsome Nathan Faulkener.
Nathan irons out her problem and takes her downstairs to the Bottom Bar, which she discovers is actually an exclusive BDSM club within Collar and Cuffs. Nathan re-ignites her passion for BDSM, and their desire for each other explodes. He wants nothing more than to solve all Summerâs problems and give her the world, but she has secrets sheâs never told, and a sordid, dangerous history that wonât stay in the past. When her ex shows up gunning for revenge, even Nathan might not be strong enough to save her...
Reader discretion: contains light BDSM, whipping, and spanking elements
In Bellaâs world all the heroes are gorgeous hunks and the heroines are always beautiful. Having said that, she firmly believes that âhandsome is as handsome doesâ and that âbeauty is in the eye of the beholderâ. (She is also a big fan of clichÃ©s as well as alliteration!)
She has been hanging out with her âimaginary friendsâ for a couple of years now and finds the profession exhilarating and intriguing. Her stories are all Erotic Romances, although they vary considerably in subject-matter.
One of the things she absolutely loves to write is light BDSM and her Collar and Cuffs series (Etopia Press) received an ARe Bestseller Award for Waiting on Summer, which has also been nominated for a BDSM Con Golden Flogger Award. This series was set in a BDSM club in Miami, and was a joy to write.
She also loves writing Cowboy Romances and was thrilled when the first book in her The Men of Moone Mountain series, (Etopia Press), entitled MÃ©nage on Moone Mountain, received a nomination for the MÃ©nage Romances Fanâs Award 2015 and became an ARe Bestseller, and the third book in this series, MÃ©nage on Ryder Ranch was also nominated for the Erotic MÃ©nages Romances Award 2016 . The fourth book in this series, MÃ©nage at the Mode Boutique is now also available in digital format. She is currently writing another Cowboy series, Midnight in Montana (Siren Publishing), the first of which, Dallas at Midnight, is already available, while the second book, Meet Me at Midnight, is due for publication in June 2016.
Her writing career began, however, in the fantasy/myth genre, with her first series Sirens and Sailors (Siren Publishing). Although this was a series of six novels, it actually started out as a short story! This was a delight to write and was proof positive that her High School Classical Studies lessons werenât entirely wasted.
She has also had a couple of short stories published in Men for Hire and Men for Hire 2 (Luminosity Publishing) and even had some rather raunchy poems included in Coming Together in Verse.
Not everyone is perfect â but itâs the character flaws which make them interesting, she believes. As in life, things donât always run smoothly, but itâs the twists and turns which provide the drive to keep going, even when it just feels like an uphill struggle. Bella is currently fighting her own battle against breast cancer â a battle which she is determined to win â and believes that all women have the right to feel sexy even when they are battle-scarred.
