Author Interview: Embue
Tell the readers a little about yourself.
Hi, my name is Embue which in French means “The Steamy One”. My forte is to bring forth erotica romance-themed stories that come from many walks of life. It’s a pleasure to be here.
As an author, do you take time to read? If so, what do you like to read and who is/are your favorite author/s?
Yes, I love to read. Summertime is usually my most cherished time to read. The other three seasons are usually consumed in writing. I enjoy reading almost anything with a captivating synopsis, romance seems to be my favorite. Some of my favorite authors are: Iris Bolling and Leila Jefferson. Their works are unique and riveting.
How do you stay motivated when the Muse is uncooperative?
It does happen and when that is the case, I usually search for a CD with some music to ‘spawn’ the Muse into the forefront. That could vary from Neo-Soul to 80’s hits. It depends on the mood and the music.
If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic getaway, what would you do and where would you go?
Oh, that’s an easy one. I’d love to visit Cannes and absorb the area. Take in the sights and write notes for another story on the beach. Listen to the locals and learn from observation.
What is the hardest thing for you to write?
The most challenging thing for me to write is poetry. It’s hard-hitting, quick, intense and most of all, honest. Trying to balance the elements and keep it classy can be frustrating at times, but it works itself out in the end.
If you could live the life of one of your characters who would you be?
Hmm . . . So far, I have just a few in my catalog but I’d definitely like to be Arizona “Ari” Garrison.
The tag line on my blog is ‘Indulge Your Inner Romantic.’ What do you do to indulge?
My preferences are enjoying French chocolate truffles, a premier glass of red wine, stimulating jazz with amazing vocals. But the most important factor is allowing it to birth the next cast of characters dying to be showcased.
At Undressed Inc., the women you meet are an eclectic bunch, but there is one thing that connects them: their sexual desire and their need to satiate that desire. In the hot anthology Undressed Inc., sit back and enjoy four stories that bring you front and center on dynamic women who, once tangled with a man who pushes all her hot buttons, fight for every drop of pleasure and love they can get.

BLACK HONEY by Samara King
Skeletons could wake the departed and make the living – dead targets!
Who could she run to?
When Officer Elisha “Elle” Taylor finds out crime lord Monty “Black” Kearns was her father, there is only one man she can turn to in the midst of a deadly plot for revenge. The very man she’d sworn never to touch again. Durant Kane.
Leaning on her father’s enforcer and her ex-lover seemed suicidal when the hit on her father was said to be ordered by his own people. Yet, the impulsive and heady sexual chemistry between them was undeniable.
One touch was all it took for the lines between good and bad to blur. One kiss was all she needed for him to steal her breath away…
TABLES TURNED by Ayanna Pierce
By day, Samantha Long uses her hands and pressure points to help her clients relax as a massage therapist. By night, Sam is Mistress Siren and uses her whips and leathers to make her clients submit as a dominatrix at Destiny Parker’s ultra-hot spot, Awaken. No matter the time of day, her mind is constantly focused on Drew Winger, a man she wants but can’t seem to conjure up her sexy nighttime persona Siren to express her feelings.
When Destiny “gets real” with her and allows Sam to think of the alternative of not expressing her feelings to Drew, Sam unleashes Mistress Siren in the hopes to making Drew only hers. She soon realizes, however, that sometimes, in order to get what you truly want you need to be willing to relinquish control and let go.
