Pleasures and Punishments
Breaking Rules Series Book 2
From treasured to trashed…
Imprisoned by Master Ben and serving out her punishment for betraying him, Caroline is now a pleasure slave. Hours turn to days. Days turn to weeks. It seems like her torment will never end. That is, until Caroline discovers Master is getting rid of her, and each session is an audition for a potential new owner.
Caroline must impress the visiting Masters so they will free her from Master Ben’s wrath. Things get really interesting when Derrick, the one who she betrayed her Master for, shows up as one of the interested suitors! Caroline’s hopes are quickly shattered when she learns that Derrick’s biggest competition for ownership of her is none other than the sadistic and cruel Blue-Eyed Devil himself, Carson, Master’s long-time friend.
Her pleasures are laced with her pains. Will she be able to endure any more punishments at the hands of her Master? Better yet, can Derrick help Caroline gain her freedom without exposing their dirty little secret?
This is a dark, short series which dabbles in BDSM and ends with a HEA.

My favorite genres are paranormal and dark romance. I love reading a good book but I'm so busy in life that I only get to enjoy audio books. Its the only way I can get lost in a good book nowadays. And you know what? I half prefer an audio book over print any day! I have a long standing membership at Audible.com and I plan to publish audio books for busy bookworms like myself! Yay!
My love of writing started when a friend of mine encouraged me to write a short story and just see what happens. Turns out I had a knack for writing because everyone loved my short stories. From then on I have worked on improving my craft. Growing from flash fictions to novellas. I am really looking forward to sharing all the twisty goodness I have planned!
Thank you & Much love and Sizzle!

Thank you for featuring my dark erotic short series Breaking Rules. I had a lot of fun writing this book because it bucks the norms. The norms of BDSM, the norms of sex, the norms of love, the norms of people. Which is why Breaking Rules is befitting. Before we get the behind, the scenes of the series let me tell you a little about myself, LaSasha Flame!
Facts about LaSasha:
What is something unique LaSasha?
I am not sure you can call this unique but I am a very creative person. I have a passion for baking and cooking along with writing, but I am also talented at painting and graphic design. I designed the covers for this series and I will be designing the covers for all my future books as well. Creating is in my blood! lol
What are some of LaSasha’s pet peeves?
My biggest pet peeve is when someone has already made up their mind about me, my thoughts, my feelings, my wants and instead of actually taking a moment to hear me out about those things, they insist on holding me to things I never said, thought, or wanted. It makes me feel small but not in a low self esteem way. More of an invisible way. No matter how much I scream or cry nobody sees me. We are so small in this vast universe so there is no reason to make another feel insufficient.
Where was LaSasha born/grew up?
I was born in Chicago but I grew up traveling the world. It wasn't until high school that my family settled down in a small town south of Chicago.
Who is LaSasha’s hero and why?
In the writing world it has to be Kressely Cole and Larissa Ione. They have created amazing paranormal romance series and I want to be just like them when I grow up lol
What is LaSasha passionate about these days?
Creating my own paranormal romance series. The Dark Immortal Flames Series is my baby that I can’t wait to share with the world!
What does LaSasha do to unwind and relax?
Believe it or not writing does help me to unwind and relax. I know it what I do for a living but writing is the fun part. It’s marketing that drive me nuts lol.
When did LaSasha first consider herself a writer?
Breaking all the Rules was a quick and rough 1.5k flash fiction that I published with a friend in emagazine Exposed. It wasn't much but when it published, I felt like a writer.
Does LaSasha have a favorite movie?
I don’t have just one favorite movie. I enjoy tons of movies regularly but recently I watched Acrimony by Tyler Perry and it was so freaking good! He did an amazon job.
Which of her novels can LaSasha imagine made into a movie?
I think Power and Lust would make a good chick flick. It’s possible the Breaking Rules Series could be a movie too, but it’s so graphic I doubt the cinema could do it any justice.
What literary pilgrimages has LaSasha gone on?
I am still on my pilgrimage to be honest. I started off in the most unusual way in writing. While most authors went to a school for writing, but I started in taboo smut. People would hire me to write their deepest darkest sexual desires into stories for them to read and pleasure themselves. Most ... well all of it was taboo sexual desires. I never kept any of the work as I didn't have permission to share it. Part of getting these clients was them knowing that I would never share their kink. It helped me to improve my writing skill but beside that it left me feeling unfulfilled. They weren't my stories, and I wanted something of my own beyond just sex. My first story with a real plot and real characters was Power and Lust. It took me some years, but I got it finished and published. Now I am working towards my ultimate goal which is to be a paranormal dark romance writer. Every day, every word is another step closer to that goal.
As a writer, what would LaSasha choose as her mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
The Flames of course!
What kind of research does LaSasha do before she begins writing a book?
I do some googling but the small details that make the story life like comes from me interviewing hundreds of people. You learn things from conversing that you just can’t get from the internet.
Does LaSasha see writing as a career?
It’s more of a passion but it has become a business more than a career.
Does LaSasha read herself and if so what is her favorite genre?
Yes I do read but only audio books! I love paranormal romance.
Does LaSasha prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
I prefer music because it drowns out the noise of the world and allows me to focus.
Does LaSasha write one book at a time or Does LaSasha have several going at a time?
I have multiple books going because sometimes ideas come to me and need to write down so I Can use it later when it’s time for that book to get the majority of my attention.
Pen or typewriter or computer?
Computer with Google docs to automatically backup all of my writing and I Can add as I go anywhere in the world.
Advice LaSasha would give new authors?
Don’t get into writing to make money. Don’t publish to get a sale. If you want your stories to be loved then build a readership. A writing career is like starting a business and the most successful ones are the ones who connect with their customers. So build a readership and connect with the reader. The sales will follow from a growing readership but a readership does not follow a sale.
What is LaSasha's writing process?
I jot down all my ideas and thoughts for the story and then I do an outline organizing those ideas into a plot point. Then I free write from plot point to plot point. I know where I am going but the journey to get there is always a surprise.
Does LaSasha try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
Neither. I just write the story I want to tell.
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
I have never been inside the head of a man so his point of view doesn't just flow from me. I worry I am making him a woman pretending to be male lol
Does LaSasha believe in writer’s block?
Honestly no I do not. Writer’s block happens when you didn't plan your story idea well enough to know where you are going even if you decide to take the scenic route.
Facts about the Book:
What inspired LaSasha to write this book?
In a way my own life experience is why I wrote the book. Caroline is me. No I wasn't a sex slave, but I was naïve to the world of BDSM just like her. Just as vultures surround her, they surrounded me. The first part Breaking all the Rules has all the excitement and thriller of entering a new world and Pleasures and Punishment has all the pain of being prey upon by the evils of the world. Derrick and Ben are the same man in the real world. Derrick represents what I thought he was and Ben represents who he really was and the girls are me. Through it all the one who will save me is me. In the real world, I was left broken hearted because I was naïve to think I could change him. That I could make him just Derrick and not Ben anymore. The great thing about fiction is Caroline gets to have the happy ever after with Derrick and not Ben.
What can we expect from LaSasha in the future?There will be a third part to the series which has Derrick’s point of view of part 1 and 2 and it will also include delete scenes from Pleasures and Punishments.
How did LaSasha come up with the concept and characters for the book?
Well it was originally supposed to be just Breaking all the Rules but those who read the story really wanted more. So I had to later on develop this back story of Caroline that would make sense in modern times. How would a woman have such a strong sense of loyalty to a man that doesn't truly love her but is her entire world is the question I needed to answer for readers. Sex trafficking was the obvious answer for me but her family would be looking for her unless her mother is a victim as was well. This allows for Ben to have his hooks into her without interruption.
Where did LaSasha come up with the names in the story?
I am terrible at choosing names so I allowed another to choose their names. The only characters that I named were Ben Carson and Jana.
What did LaSasha enjoy most about writing this book?
A lot of the crazy kink and fetishes in the books are sexual fantasies of people I know and talk with on a daily basis. The sex scenes seem realistic because they really happened to a variety of people. We are all just a group of sickos creating hot scenes to make the readers tingle.
Tell us about one of LaSasha's characters?
Sanchii is a character my friends created to be this demented fury. Most furries are not into actual animals but with the dark world Caroline is tied up in why would any of them be normal? She is surrounded by sharks and Sanchii represents that. Her name is a play of the order name of sharks, Elasmobranchii.
If LaSasha had to do it all over again, would she change anything in her latest book?
I would have made it one book but the concept for the second part didn't come until years after the original story was published.
Did LaSasha learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learned that my friends are bigger freaks than I am in the bedroom. I need to step my game up lol.
Anything specific LaSasha want to tell her readers?
This book is not a BDSM book because BDSM is about being safe and consensual. This book is about a woman wrapped up with the fakes and the posers in the lifestyle and the difference between abuse (Ben, Carson, Jana) and BDSM (Derrick).
How did LaSasha come up with name of this book?
Breaking all the Rules is because Derrick and Caroline knew better but they ignored the rules.
Pleasures and Punishments is because they were forced to face the consequences of their decision.
If LaSasha could spend time with a character from her book whom would it be? And what would she do during that day?
Carson is who I would spend the day with because I have a soft spot for the blue-eyed devil. He is everything I find exciting about the forbidden. Everyone loves Derrick but they don’t know that Carson is the representation of what LaSasha Flame’s deepest desires. I would be his pain slut for a day because who doesn't want to seduced by the enemy.
Convince us why LaSasha feels her books are a must read.
I don’t have to convince you. I think you are already seduced by them. Enjoy the sizzle!
Has LaSasha written any other books that are not published?
Penalty of Indulgence is the title of the third part of the series which will house Derrick’s point of view of part one Breaking all the Rules and part two Pleasures and Punishments
