From Publisher: British Agent Nathaniel Bradley is tasked with bringing home a stolen heirloom. After tracking the Faberge egg all the way to a group of criminals in New York, Bradley infiltrates a ring of con artists and gets sucked into the role of a high priced prostitute.
While hoping for a chance to take back what is rightfully his, Bradley’s sole mission becomes to seduce Tony Terranova, Jr, the heir to a notorious mafia dynasty. Though Tony is strikingly handsome, the usually dominant Bradley is hesitant to submit to the sexual whims of a dangerous Mafioso.
What Bradley doesn’t expect is for Tony to fall to his knees so eagerly for him, leaving him blindsided by how intensely their dark tastes complement each other. Now Bradley is caught up in a deadly game of lies and desire, where what he truly wants may not be what duty requires.
It’s Q&A Time!
Q: Can you tell us a little something about where you grew up and what your childhood was like?
A: I grew up in San Diego right near Pacific Beach. I was a surfer girl (or boogie boarder girl) and I grew up in the ocean. If I wasn’t swimming, I was reading.
Q: When did you first begin reading novels?
A: I’ve been reading since I can remember. My first memories were of my aunt and grandma teaching me how to read. When I was thirteen, I got my hands on my first romance novel and I enjoyed the hunky hero riding off into the sunset with his mate.
Q: I love to read m/m myself and am very interested in learning about how you became interested in writing about it.
A: I’ve been writing m/m since 1999, and I’ve always loved it. I had an idea for a story and one of the characters was gay. I went with the story line and I enjoyed the story.
Q: What are your favorite erotica books?
A: The Assignment by Evangeline Anderson and Make Me, Sir by Cherise Sinclair.
Q: When did you realize you wanted to become a writer?
A: Back in 2000, I really wanted to try my hand at writing professionally. I tried to get my m/m pubbed but I guess I was just ahead of my time. I took some time off and started a business and in 2009, I went to the RT convention and got started writing again.
Q: What made you want to write erotica?
A: When it comes to erotica, I write in the sub-category of erotic romance, so that means there is always a happy ending with really hot sex driving the plot development. I love writing making love between my two characters. It’s a lot of fun. If it wasn’t fun, I wouldn’t be slaving away over a keyboard. I’d be off reading.
Q: Of all your novels, which is your favorite and why?
A: I would have to say it’s The Long Con. I love Tony and Bradley’s chemistry. It got so hot sometimes that it burned me when I wrote their story. Their romance and attraction exploded on the pages.
Q: When you’re working on a book, how much time per day is devoted to it?
A: I have a day job that I work at all day so I tend to work on it when I have a few minutes. I tend to aim for word count rather than time spent on a daily basis. I try to hit 2K per day.
Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: Read. I also love playing video games too.
Q: What is your favorite genre of music?
A: I love Top 40 and rock n roll. I also love J-Pop and video game music. There’s nothing better than hitting the end of a huge battle and hearing the triumphant song at the end. It’s positive reinforcement.
Q: What is your favorite type of film?
A: I like all films but I also like ones with strong females but that’s only if I sit down long enough to watch a movie. I tend to get bored watching them, possibly because I’m not in control of the story line.
Lori: Thank you for having me by! Best wishes to all and good luck!
