Author Biography

If someone told a young Sayara St. Clair that one day she would be an erotic/paranormal-romance-writing Aussie expat living in Thailand, she would have snort-laughed and yelled, “You. Be. Crazy!”
If someone told her the same thing now, she would not yell, only nod solemnly. Because that actually happened.

Sayara has a science degree, with majors in both microbiology and biochemistry. Working in the fields of serology and tissue banking, she got to do lots of cool and sometimes slightly weird stuff. She was employed as the manager/buyer for furniture retail stores, where she had a chance to unleash her inner interior decorator. (Interior design is one of her great passions.) And for a time, she taught English to students in Asia. (Hanging about in a roomful of extremely loud, pint-sized humans is not one of her great passions.) She has written ads for TV, print and radio; real estate brochures; website copy; and a screenplay. Now she’s writing fiction and has discovered it’s her favorite thing to do.

When not writing, she may be most commonly found in a horizontal position reading, in the kitchen baking, or somewhere else singing at the top of her lungs. She loves music and is prone to spontaneous bouts of dancing.

With regards to vampires and chocolate: she bites one on a daily basis and has had a lifelong obsession with the other. And she’s not telling which one’s which.

Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

I first discovered the concept of submissive and dominant in Fifty Shades of Grey, but Master Me by Sayara St. Clair takes the concept to a new level, introducing a conflict of wills that defines the complexity and the sophistication in character development. A sizzling romance that is the third book in Dante's Purgatory, echoing BDSM themes, it follows a story where roles are reversed. In the club, Xavier isn't just the dominant one, but one who equally intimidates and his physique keeps women at bay. But one tiny woman, Trixie, is about to change all that. She doesn't find it exciting playing the submissive type and what she plans to accomplish, she plans to accomplish on Xavier. Can she break down his walls and bring him to his knees and get him to submit any way she wants?

Warning: sex opens the book and it is intense. The content is strictly written for mature readers and there are a lot of sexual scenes that are described with forensic precision. While it features mature themes and a lot of sizzling romance, the narrative focuses on character and explores the struggle between two strong wills. There is a beautiful twist in the story and it is so skillfully crafted that readers will love to discover it as they wonder if Xavier's dominant character reflects who he truly is or is just a mask that shields his vulnerability and dark secrets. Master Me isn't a book to read in public and it features interesting characters and the very edge of sexual pleasure. Sayara St. Clair writes boldly and makes readers want to try things they have never thought about.
