Blog Tour: Intense Passions by Kalen Laurel

Intense Passions
Intense Series, #1

Author - Kalen Laurel
Genre – Adult Romance, Erotica with light BDSM
Brooke Anderson, a pretty, young manager in a Chicago consulting firm, finally sheds her boring boyfriend and is ready for a relationship that will grab her by the shoulders and shake her into consciousness. She could easily fall for Jack, an intense and handsome senior partner at her company. His passion for food, wine, and music is infectious, and his delightfully kinky sexuality threatens to rock Brooke’s world. But Marshall, a powerful but older CEO-type she meets also has an eye for her, and his dark sexuality draws Brooke closer with every turn. But is the man just too dangerous?
These two alpha males ultimately find themselves face-to-face in a testosterone-driven clash, but not before Brooke gets a taste of the mind-blowing emotion, off-the-charts sensation and unparalleled sexuality an intense relationship can bring.

About the Author

I’m Kalen Laurel, age 52, and I’m a mother, wife, mid-level manager, dog lover (and cats, too, but I’m allergic to them) and avid romance and erotica writer. Though I’ve written for years, I’ve just begun to be interested in officially sharing my stories with others.
I’m currently working on a novel about an unlikely couple who experience the ups and downs of getting to know each other’s sexual fantasies, limits, and compatibility. It’s mostly a love story with a bit of light BDSM. I hope to finish it this spring.
I decided to begin blogging in the hope I might find others willing to share their experiences, advice, and critiques with me.

Excerpt #1

Brooke’s voice:
“What would you think if I asked you how your sex life is?”

Jack laughs. “I’d probably turn you over my knee and give you a good spanking.”


An image of me, bent over Jack’s knee—my jumper pulled up to my waist, my ass cheeks exposed and targeted by his open-faced hand—flashes in my mind. My face is now burning, and I am conscious of the fact that my jaw has dropped and I am staring at him with wide eyes, unable to utter a word.

His smile fades slightly, but he still sounds authoritative. “Perhaps I should be calling out ‘Bingo’ or ‘Jackpot’...I seem to have hit a nerve.” He shifts forward in the chair and leans closer, lifting his right hand to my face, gently lifting my chin with his fingertips while caressing my cheek with his thumb. The energy from his touch travels through my body and focuses itself in an urgent shiver between my thighs.

Excerpt #2

Brooke’s voice:
He directs me to the balcony and pulls out one of the chairs. I start to sit down, but he stops me. “Wait a second.”

He pulls a neatly folded silk handkerchief from his pocket, shakes it out, and then uses it to cover the seat. I start to sit again, and again he interrupts me, this time holding my elbow gently as he leans over my shoulder and speaks quietly right next to my ear. “And if you wouldn’t mind indulging a little fantasy of mine, please flip your skirt out from underneath your butt as you sit down.”

Is he serious?

I turn almost completely around in his direction to get a look at his face.

“Really? Are you serious?” I know I’m beet red. My face is burning up and the early spring sun in San Francisco can’t possibly be that hot.

He gives me a wolfish grin and nods without shame. “Yes. I really am a pervert, I know. But I’m also a lot of’ll see.”

He steps back to give me room to lower myself into the chair, and I give him a bit of a dirty look before complying. He leans over and kisses me on the temple.
