- What is your name? Do you have a nickname?
My name is Ophelia June Mills. My sister and close friends call me Lia though.
- Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you call home?
I was born in Burbank, California. My parents moved us into the home I still live in now when I was three. So I’ve never really lived anywhere else. I love my neighborhood. It’s close to Magnolia Avenue which has all these cool funky shops and some great places to eat all in walking distance.
- What is one strong memory that has stuck with you from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting?
The day my parents died. They were killed in a car crash six years ago. I don’t think that type of loss is something you ever truly recover from but something that you carry with you all the days of your life. I was a high school senior at the time, and if it weren’t for my older sister I doubt I would have graduated.
- You’re getting ready for a night out. Where are you going? What do you wear? Who will you be with?
Typically I go to whatever the latest hot spot my friends Anna and Molly have discovered. In Los Angeles, there is always something to do. My friends like the club scene so I have some dresses that are strictly club couture.
- Where do you go when you’re angry? What do you do there?
I tend to burrow inside my bedroom anytime my emotions get the better of me. There’s nothing in life that can’t be fixed by a comfy bed, hot cup of tea, and a Jane Austen novel.
- Have you been in love? Had a broken heart? Who was it and what happened.
Mister Darcy and all my other eighteenth century book boyfriends. I love each and every one. They have ruined me for mere mortal men.
- What is your biggest fear? Who have you told this to? Who would you never tell this to? Why?
That my secret shame would be discovered. I’ve never told anyone what I did and what I caused. It will haunt me until the day I die.
- If you had to make a meal for me right now with only the ingredients in your refrigerator and pantry, what would you make me?
It depends on the mood, but I’m really into comfort food: grilled cheese, apples with almond butter, that type of thing.
- Look down. Describe what you’re wearing. Is this the way you’re normally dressed? If not, what do you normally wear?
Right now, I’m in my yoga pants and tank top wrapped up in my thick fluffy robe as I work at my desk to try and finish a term paper, followed by a stack of undergrad papers to correct for the professor I work for.
- What’s the one thing you want out of life that you don’t think you can have? Why can’t you have it?
I want a man who knows the definition of chivalry and honor. Those are foreign concepts to most modern men. And unfortunately, I can’t extract my favorite hero from the pages of eighteenth century literature to love.
TO MASTER & DEFEND (The Dungeon Fantasy Club Series, Book 2)
Ophelia Mills is coerced by her friends into having a fashionable night out, where she discovers the newest night life destination is actually an exotic BDSM Club named Dungeon Pleasures. She’s always been curious about the lifestyle, but her reserved nature has so far held her back from exploring her desires. When an over enthusiastic club goer goes overboard with his intentions and attempts to force her into submission, the club’s owner comes to her rescue, defending her honor. After a scorching one night stand with her knight in shining armor, Ophelia discovers that the fantasy was one for the record books.
Tobias Ford likes his life just fine. At the helm of two successful businesses, he’s a Dom with a checkered past and isn’t looking for anything permanent. He’s perfectly content to enjoy the submissive offerings at Dungeon Pleasures, as well as his membership in the exclusive Dungeon Fantasy Club. Then Ophelia Mills stumbles in, needing his protection, and bringing forth every dominant urge he possesses. After a torrid night he cannot forget, he devises a campaign, laying siege to her heart even as he spanks her bare bottom for disobedience. With every one of her pleasured cries, Tobias falls further under Ophelia’s spell as she surrenders to his mastering.
As he indulges her newfound carnal appetite, Ophelia will have to face old hurts, and decide whether or not she can trust him with the most precious of gifts…
