About Alyssa Aaron:
Alyssa Aaron read her first romance novel (A Stranger’s Kiss by Sondra Sanford) when she was in eighth grade. She was hooked by the romance genre and became an avid consumer of Harlequin novels. It wasn’t until she was in 9th grade that the praise of one of her teachers made her think about writing a book. The romance genre was a natural choice for her efforts.
Once the idea was born Alyssa was off like a shot. She completed her first novel a very tame marriage of convenience story and submitted it to Harlequin in the summer following 9th grade. It was rejected the following year but Alyssa continued to write dabbling in many other genres for many years.
His Perfect Submissive is her first, but not her last romance novel. She is currently hard at work on her 2nd novel Dominant’s Regret a story about what happens when a dominant makes a mistake (or a series of mistakes) and the trust in the relationship is broken.
When she is not writing Alyssa enjoys gardening, quilting, collecting recipes, and volunteering for various causes.
Her volunteer positions have included working as an advocate for abused and neglected children, grooming police horses, and caring for cats at a no kill animal shelter.
Alyssa has many story ideas that sprang from her experiences as a volunteer brewing in her head. One day she will write them down.
His Perfect Submissive:
Kara was the victim of a brutal rape that occurred when she was seven. The event destroyed her family and left her fearful and distrustful of men.
When Kara’s brother embezzles $30,000 from Slade’s company, Kara goes to Slade’s office determined to talk him out of going to the police.
Slade wants a peaceful, obedient, submissive with whom to share his life and in Kara he glimpses what he wants. He seizes the opportunity and makes Kara an offer she can’t afford to refuse. The only way she can save her brother from certain prison is to accept Slade’s marriage proposal and become his submissive.
Kara faces her wedding with anxiety. She can’t tell Slade she can’t submit sexually without risking her brother’s freedom, yet she doubts she’ll be able to keep her promise to be a submissive, obedient wife.
