Eve Dangerfield of Degrees of Control answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.
What's your favorite down-home family style meal? My mother’s Italian and on special occasions she makes hand rolled gnocchi which we serve with homemade sauce, fresh bread, red wine and braised pork ribs. It’s basically the best meal ever. Just typing that has made me unbearably hungry.
Who is your "book boyfriend" (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Any of Cara McKenna’s blue collar heroes majorly get my blood pumping but I have a huge soft spot for Flynn. He’s a boxer from one of her early novels Willing Victim. Even though I think I would annoy him in real life (he’s very stoic, I’m very ‘court jester-y’) I would do bad things to spend a long weekend in his bed.
Describe the perfect vacation.
A complete replication of the trip to Europe I took with my boyfriend when I was 22. We spent our days in museums and art galleries and cafes, eating cheese plates and drinking wine and we spent our night dancing and drinking cocktails and making love. It was the kind of vacation where there’s so much beauty and pleasure in hindsight the whole thing feels like a dream.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
A rocking horse called Dandy. He was furry and had huge red button eyes than in hindsight were super creepy. When I was too big to ride him my mum and dad gave him to my little brother. Unfortunately his unblinking gaze gave Tom nightmares so off to the tip Dandy went. I like to think he’s still out there, riding a big wave of garbage, waiting for me to reclaim him.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance and erotica. I started reading them when I finished an English literature course and needed a break from Medea and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (urgh) and I never looked back. A cup of tea and good romance is my favorite way to spend a weeknight and I find all the subgenres fascinating. If I want to read something chill and I’m not in the mood for romance I just go through Harry Potter again. I’ve read twelve times and it’s always, always amazing. I feel for people who lived and died without reading Harry Potter.

Charlotte Bell is a typical yoga teacher. She's friendly, earnest and has some slightly masochistic tendencies. After a painful break-up she’s determined to address her long-denied kinks with the kind of man she’s always been too terrified to approach. Charlie's friends select James Hunter, a male model turned suit who has some dark inclinations of his own. After a ‘chance’ encounter at a party James agrees to school Charlie in the harsher side of sex. He knows she's too genuine, too kind, too everything for a guy like him but he won’t turn down the chance to break in a starry-eyed submissive like her. As Charlie and James attempt a strings-free sexual relationship they're alarmed to discover a connection that runs deeper than either of them could have predicted.
