I just verbed a noun, which, since this is the Decadent Publishing blog, means both Valerie and Kate are rolling their eyes at me. Submissive on the Run , my newest release, extends my stint on the 1Night Stand train to six books. And if I had known about the series prior to submitting my first Decadent manuscript, Delicious Delay would probably have been adapted to fit the series as well. After all, it is about a one-night stand, is 20,000 words long, and everything happens in less than 24 hours. All that’s missing is Madame Eve.
Be that as it may, six books is quite a commitment to a rather specific story structure, which begs the question—why do I keep coming back? For one, I thrive on guidelines. Left to my own devices, I tend to write sprawling fantasy sagas that never end, or post-apocalyptic epics that really don’t have a place in the market. Such ambitious projects, coupled with my somewhat hectic schedule, tend to lead to discarded, half-written manuscripts.
More importantly, the series allows me to focus on a single interlude in a character’s life—a moment that is extremely important. In other words, I get to cut straight to the good stuff guilt free (because Kate is making me, and she’s my Evil Mistress). By doing so, she forces me to make the most out of the magical window when two people fall in love.
And yes, there’s the perk of jumping to the sexy stuff in record time. Patience is definitely not my virtue.
So, if you’re a fan of quick reads with lots of bedroom action and tons of romance, please give my addition to the Carnivore Club a shot. I promise you creative interrogation techniques, a bit of spanking, and a capture game, as well as a couple that really deserve their happily ever after.

Submissive on the Run
by Tara Quan
Obscene wealth and a toxic family taught Joss Bradlee to care about no one. He moved through life in a caustic shell, fending off gold-diggers with his sharp tongue and abrasive personality. But a stubborn submissive saw past his nonchalant act, and he fell hard and fast for a girl he didn’t deserve. When she accidentally stumbled into the line of fire, he moved heaven and earth to protect her, even if it meant letting her go. Ten months later, he ensures her safety and tracks her down, finally ready to claim the one person that matters. The only problem—she wants nothing to do with him.
On the run for close to a year, Kim Tran receives a surprise call from the man who’d put her life in danger. His family hired assassins to kill her, but he’s somehow convinced they still had a chance. With their entire relationship built on a lie, she resists the instinct to sprint straight into his arms. Faced with a social divide no sane person would bridge, she cuts her losses and breaks her own heart. But the Dominant she loves has other plans, and he’s spent his entire life getting his way. Too late to run and with nowhere to hide, she faces an adversary well versed in all her weaknesses.
At the Carnivore Club, two exhibitionists meet for a battle of wills, lured by a one-night stand service, misplaced cat, and several helping hands. With the aid of handcuffs, disciplinary measures, and a capture game, a reluctant sub rediscovers the pleasures of bondage, the thrill of display, and the ecstasy of surrender.
Genre: BDSM Romance, Erotic Romance, Interracial/Multicultural
