Owned for Christmas by Willa Edwards

Fighting Boredom with Romance
I’ve always been someone who likes to try different things. To explore and challenge myself. I’ve never stayed in a job for more than a year unless I absolutely had to because I wanted to try something new. In college, once I completed the prerequisites for one major, I was ready to start another one.  Some might say I get bored easily, but I don’t think of it that way. I think I just have curiosity. A curiosity to see new things, to do new things, to stretch my view of the world, to explore more than just my little corner of the universe.

This search for new experiences fits perfectly with my career writing romance writing. Each story is a new opportunity to explore something different. Some new profession, some new place or new experience.  It’s one of the reasons I like to play with different genres from BDSM to ménage, cowboy to historical and more.

Owned for Christmas was just another opportunity to try something new. There was quite a lot I got to explore with this tale that I’d never experiment with before. A country setting, a cowboy mentality (including horses and a barn) and a ménage featuring one woman scared of her true nature torn between two brothers who have more to fight about than just her affections. All of these are new experiences I’ve never explored in another story, or my own life.

Each exciting new opportunity helped me keep my boredom at bay, and I loved every minute of it. These characters spoke to me from the very beginning, pulling at my heart strings and forcing me to explore their world, to tell their story. Keeping me interested and exploring these new areas is always secondary to the needs of my characters.

I’ve always written the stories that I loved, the ones that spoke to me. It just happens that the dreams and passions I always had worked well with my desire to explore.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, from the age I was old enough to understand that people actually wrote books. And while at that age I didn’t realize writing would be a perfect way to stem my constant need for new experiences, it certainly seems to have that effect for me. 

Which only makes me love this career even more. Not only do I get to spend my days writing stories that bring hope and happiness to my characters, and hopefully my readers lives—not without a little strife too, to make it all worthwhile. But I also get to satisfy my need for adventure without even having to leave my house. And that’s my own version of a happily ever after.

I hope you’ll take a look at my new release, Owned for Christmas, and see how my characters Kate, Grant and Daniel find their happily ever after. I promise, you won’t be bored by their tale. I certainly never was.

Christmas with her boyfriend’s family seems like a lovely idea—until she finds her previous Dom staying for the holidays too.

Kate Baker is nervous about meeting her boyfriend Daniel’s family. When she walks into the family home to find Grant, her former Dom, spending the holidays with them too, her world turns upside down. How can she spend Christmas with the man who shattered her heart and broke her trust in the whole BDSM scene?

Although she had no idea Grant and Daniel were brothers, Grant revives all those needs that Daniel can’t fulfill. But she won’t give up the man who helped mend her broken heart after Grant shattered it—even if she has to bury the submissive part of herself to do it.

A year ago, Grant Farrell left the woman he loved—and the best sub he’s ever controlled—to tend the family ranch after his father’s death. It almost tore his heart out to leave Kate but he had no other choice. He didn’t realize how much it had hurt them both until she shows up at his family’s home on his brother’s arm.

Now more than ever he’s determined to keep her in his life, even if he has to share her to do it. But half measures won’t be enough anymore. He needs either to own her completely, or give her up to Daniel for good.

Can he convince Kate to forgive him for the pain he caused her and the secrets he kept? Or will he lose her to his brother for his past mistakes?

Willa Edwards has dreamed about being a writer since she was four years old. When she picked up her first romance novel at fifteen she knew she'd found her place and she's never looked back.

She now lives in New York, where she works with numbers at her Evil Day Job and spends her nights writing red-hot tales of erotic romance. When she's not at her computer, you can usually find her curled up in bed with her two furry babies, her nose pressed to her e-reader.
