TDP SMALL PREVIEW

“You’ll kneel for me without me having to tell you to. And when you do, you’ll feel so much better. Trust me.”
– Detective Sam Roberts

Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand. Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.

Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him. But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

Ryan stopped picking at the wax and met Sam’s eyes in the mirror. He didn’t say anything. He just stood there, looking at Sam’s reflection.

Do you need-.” Sam stopped. Ryan was on the brink of … something. Sam knew what he said would either finally get him to open up or cause that hard shell to close even tighter around him. Remembering Ryan’s seeming aversion to needing someone, he asked instead, “Would you like some help?”

Ryan moved his head, the movement so slight it could barely be called a nod. If they hadn’t been staring at each other in the mirror, he would have missed it. Sam touched his fingertips to Ryan’s shoulder, waiting to see if he would be rejected. Ryan didn’t react, so Sam moved in closer. When he laid the warmth of his palm across his back, Ryan closed his eyes and shuddered. He gripped the countertop with both hands, his head hanging low.

I don’t know how to let go,” he said in a voice hoarse with restrained despair.

Sam stepped forward again, moving close enough behind Ryan that he could wrap an arm around him. Ryan stood there for a second before he turned and leaned into his embrace. Sam looked at their reflection in the mirror. Ryan’s blond head was nestled against him, streaks of wax down his back. For the first time he looked truly vulnerable, just as Sam had wanted to see him all along. He stroked Ryan’s hair, pressing a kiss to the soft strands.

I’ll show you, Ryan. All you have to do is trust me. I’ll take care of the rest.”

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Christa Tomlinson, author of The Detective’s Pleasure. Hi Christa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

1) Tell us about your book.

The Detective’s Pleasure is the story of a submissive, Ryan Bennett, who doesn’t quite know how to submit. And a Dom, Sam Roberts, who takes him own as a project.

2) How difficult was it to get into the main character’s head?

It was very difficult to understand Ryan. He was the bad guy in The Sergeant, so I had to figure out why he caused so many problems. I also needed to learn what Sam could do to help him. It was so frustrating, but ended up being incredibly rewarding once I figured him out.

3) Is this book a standalone or do you plan on visiting it again?

Currently it is only a standalone. But you never know, Ryan and Sam may decide they have more to say.

4) Why did you choose to write M/M stories?

I grew up reading m/f. Then in about 2005 or so, when I started reading e-books, I discovered m/m. It never occurred to me to be scandalized, I just liked the blurb and hit buy. I can’t remember exactly which was the first
m/m I read. It was either Evangelin Anderson or Lacey Thorn. I started writing m/m in 2012 when I got hooked on fanfic. Oh, the wonderful slash! When I decided to start writing for publication again, I had so much m/m on the brain I knew that’s where my writing passion had moved to.

5) Where do you find your inspiration?

From anywhere and everywhere. I’m a daydreamer, so my mind will wander off after I hear a song or see something or someone interesting. The next thing I know, I’ve come up with a new idea for a story.
