by Lacey Savage
Ginny and Cole have struggled to connect intimately since before their marriage. When Cole suggests they surprise each other with the most sexually daring things they can dream up for their anniversary, Ginny reluctantly musters every ounce of courage she possesses to get nipple piercings.
He’s turned their suburban basement into a dungeon—and hired a sexy Dom to teach them the art of BDSM.
Desperately in love with his wife, Cole’s aware of sensitive sexual demons in Ginny’s past, and will try anything to beat them. Whips, toys, ménage play with the Dom…all these and more could help Ginny find pleasure, break through her issues.
Or, if they’re not careful, possibly just break Ginny.
Oh boy, talk about putting me on the spot right off the bat… Okay, how about this? I got married at the ripe old age of 18. And no, I wasn’t pregnant. Nor was it an arranged marriage. But I can say that it’s been 14 years, and I still consider it the best decision I ever made. What can I say? When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Is it any wonder I write romance for a living?
Tell us a little about your book?
COMING UNBOUND is an unconventional erotic romance. It’s about a married couple struggling with a few issues in the bedroom. I have a feeling many of us have been there… But this particular husband, well, he decides to raise the stakes a little, and tells his wife he’d like them both to surprise each other with the most sexually daring things they can think of for their anniversary. She gets nipple piercings. As for him? Well, he turns their suburban basement into a BDSM dungeon, and hires a Dom to teach them what to do with all their new toys. No half-measures for this guy!
How much emotion does it take from you to write?
It depends on the scene I’m writing at any given time, but I really throw myself into my stories, so it’s not unusual for me to get teary-eyed, or cackle maniacally while I’m writing. It’s a good thing I write with the door closed.
What is your favorite part of the book?
I loved writing the scene where Ginny comes home and discovers Cole’s surprise. Her reaction to the basement-turned-dungeon was a lot of fun to write… as was everything else that comes after!
You can only pick 3 words for your main characters..what would they be? *to describe your main characters*
Frustrated. Devoted. Loyal.
Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why??
The easiest was Ginny. I could relate to her so much while I was writing this book, and loved being in her head while I told her story. The hardest was Cole, because I wanted to show him being devoted and caring, but without having him come across as a pushover. And since we don’t get any scenes from Cole’s point of view, that was a tough balancing act.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently in between projects. This doesn’t happen often, so I’m enjoying the short break while I can!
What's one thing that you enjoy about writing?
Just one? Hmm… I’d have to say that what I love most is getting to know my characters and having them come to life on the page. They surprise me so often, doing things I would have never expected but which seem ultimately right for them. I love that!
Since we're cover hussies....what was your first impression of your cover?
I loved it! The artist captured the love and devotion between Cole and Ginny beautifully. It was exactly what I was hoping for.
What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?
I love both, but these days, I lean toward ebooks. I really like reading dozens of samples to find the books that hook me and refuse to let go. If I had to buy the paperbacks to do the same thing, I’d go broke!
Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?
Oh boy, yes… Epic fantasy (like George R.R. Martin’s GAME OF THRONES series). It’s my favorite genre to read, but I’m terrified of writing it.
Okay.... personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there... Hahah... If you thought you were safe... Nah... Forgot it... Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!
What is on your night stand/dresser?
My iPad, a lamp, my glasses, a pen, and a highlighter.
What are you listening to you right now?
My husband, having a very loud phone conversation in the next room.
What are you reading right now?
Nalini Singh’s ANGELS’ BLOOD, which I’m absolutely loving!
What is your favorite season? Holiday?
Favorite season – summer. Favorite holiday – New Year’s Eve.
And what has been your best b-day present ever??
My husband gives me the “gift of shopping” every year, and I couldn’t ask for anything better. He basically hands me a wad of cash and lets me go crazy in a mall. :) I’m a lucky, lucky girl!
Hard and Quick Time! Don't think... Just answer! Okay, before we go this route, I will get us a refill on our drinks... I will be right back...

I groped for my cocktail glass then drained it. “Now, are you going to answer my question or not?”
She pursed her lips for a moment before replying. “Men want whores.”
My stomach bottomed out. That wasn’t at all the answer I’d expected. It went against everything I believed.
I motioned for her to go on with a flick of my trembling hand.
“They also want a woman who’s confident in her own skin. Someone secure enough in her sexuality to tease them, taunt them, play with them.”
The blood drained from my face. That wasn’t me at all. I liked sex well enough, but Cole was the one who initiated our romantic encounters almost all the time.
“What they don’t want,” Donna continued, “is someone who just lies there and takes it.” She sipped her martini and furrowed her brows. “Why are you asking me this?”
I sucked in a breath and considered lying or changing the subject. But my heart pounded hard against my breastbone, and I needed to know more. “Cole wants us to spice things up for our anniversary,” I blurted. “And I have no idea what to do.”
“Is that all?” Donna laughed, the humor crinkling her eyes. “Geez, girl, you scared me. You were so serious. I thought you were getting a divorce or something.”
I swallowed hard but said nothing. A divorce might not be too far off. Cole had married a woman with little sexual experience and no interest in learning anything beyond the particulars of inserting Tab A into Slot B, and I couldn’t help but wonder if he had a Lilian of his own. Cole worked as a technician at a medical laboratory. Had someone there already offered to hop on a photocopy machine and spread her legs for him?
The thought soured my stomach. I set my empty glass aside and gripped Donna’s hands. “Help me.”
Her eyes widened. She squeezed my fingers in a supportive gesture, and I was insanely grateful she wasn’t laughing.
“Okay, well, you must have some idea. Think about a fantasy of yours… Something you haven’t gotten to act out but would like to.” I must have looked completely blank, because Donna sighed. She signaled a waiter who was passing by. “We’re going to need more alcohol.”.
