Falling Under You

(A Fixed Trilogy Novella)

by Laurelin Paige

Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway.

But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom.

Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Even her dominant boss, Hudson Pierce has turned down her advances, leaving her to fear that she will never find the lover she’s longing for.

Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

It’s a bad idea…such a deliciously bad idea…but when Boyd takes the reins and leads her to sensual bliss she’s never known, the headstrong Norma can’t help but fall under his command.

An Exclusive Interview With Laurelin Paige:

~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog

Oh my goodness, how I loved this story and Boyd and Norma! How did you choose them for this novella?

Boyd and Norma have been begging for their story since they first appeared together in Forever with You. Then they both had a bigger role in Free Me and Find Me, and still didn’t get their story told. I’m so glad I finally could find a place to share their history. I think 1001 Dark Nights ended up being the perfect fit. Both new and old fans of the Fixed Universe should (hopefully) find their journey fun and sexy and sweet.

Boyd is such a delicious contradiction, being a bit submissive to Norma at work but totally dominant in the bedroom. Is it difficult to write characters with such a dichotomy?

Not really. Those are exactly the kinds of dynamics I’m drawn to when creating characters. I’m very interested in the reasons why people do things, the why’s behind behavior, and characters like Norma and Boyd who have very unusual traits, are the ones I’m much more inclined to spend time exploring.

I’m sure many women will be able to relate to Norma’s situation and the need to both give and take control at different times. Was there any person you drew your inspiration from in writing her?

*blushes* Yes. Norma is really based on me. I’m a very strong, independent woman who can be very intimidating, especially to men. Yet, I’ve managed to find an awesome man who, much like Boyd, is focused on helping me be the best at what I do. He’s a stay-at-home-dad and is so very good at a lot of the domestic tasks I have no interest in. But, without saying too much, he’s also an excellent source of inspiration for my men in the bedroom. 😉

I have a feeling there are a lot of women like Norma out there, women who have to dominate and be in charge all day and who, when it comes to their love life, all they want is to be taken care of. This book is for all of you!

Are you a writer who prefers silence when writing? Or music?

I majored in music/musical theater, and am a huge lover of all types of music. Which means I always want it on, but it also can be quite a distraction to me. Sometimes I’m too pulled into the melodies and chords and lyrics. So it really depends on what I need to write. I find it’s best if I match the music to the book mood, and, often, I need really simple folky or pop type songs because I know they won’t be interesting enough to pull me out of my groove.

Can you give us a hint as to what you’re working on now?

I am currently writing Chandler, the next novel in the Fixed universe. It’s a standalone featuring Hudson Pierce’s little brother, well, except he’s all grown up now. It comes out September 20th, and the first chapter is included in the back of Falling Under You. I might be prejudice, but this guy is a real character, I’m telling you. I can’t wait to share his book with everyone.

Ok, so for 2016 I am going to be playing Mad Libs with the 1,001 Dark Nights authors for a bit of fun! Here is Laurelin’s Mad Libs titled: A Recipe for Ice Cubes:

To make sexy ice cubes, first find a tray with a mold shaped like a spaghetti or a tie. Then burn once while holding the tray. Fill the molds with wine or even tears {but for the best results, always use semen}. It can even be dyed blue if you wish. Bang carefully when placing the tray in the freezer. Allow the cubes to work for at least six minutes, or until they are completely submissive. Remove the tray happily, and jiggle with your lips until the cubes run. Add to your favorite drink and smile.


Thank you so much for having me! And, the mad libs were so fun, I now have to go make up one to play with my husband. J
