*Excited Waves* Thank you Tonya for having me on your blog today. I’m Tatum Throne, author of erotic, contemporary and paranormal M/F and M/M romance. I’m a stay at home mom of three school aged boys, all three have severe food allergies. I worked for years as a social worker before leaving the field to be a mom and full-time writer.
Q. Tell us about your latest book. High Heat is the continuation of Colin and Quinn’s story from my first novella, One Hot Night. I had so much reader feedback that they wanted more. Here’s the back cover of my latest M/M High Heat.
The man of Chef Colin Andrews deepest desires walked out of his life to become a firefighter. Since then, Colin has made a name for himself as a chef. Driving home one night, Colin has a car accident and is saved by the man he longs to see again, Quinn “Cav” Cavanaugh. As Colin is pulled from the wreckage, he knows fate is giving him one last chance to say goodbye.
Cav is not about to let Colin die. As more and more strange things start happening to Colin, Cav knows he must convince Colin he’s worth trusting again. Yes, he walked away once from Colin, but he’s not about to do it again. He wants Colin and knows they’re meant to be together. As their passions ignite, so does the danger. A man from Colin’s past is back seeking revenge. Cav will do anything to protect Colin, but will Colin trust him before it’s too late?
Q. What makes a great hero?
A. For me, a great hero is one that isn’t willing to give up. He’ll go to hell and back for the man or woman he loves. He’s strong and follows his heart. Of course, he’s sexy, but flawed like the rest of us. He’s perfect for his lover and isn’t looking for love when it finds him. He’s totally off his game when he meets the love of his life.
Q. Do you have anything in common with your characters?
A. I’m sassy and mouthy like my heroines. I have a wicked sense of humor and I love to laugh. I’m strong-willed, and I don’t like the word NO. My characters are a lot like me. We’re feisty, but down to earth.
Q. What’s on the horizon?
My latest M/M, Training TJ, will be out at the end of January. I loved writing TJ’s story. He’s in love with his best friend who he works with, but he knows they can’t be together. Here’s the back cover.
Late one night, SWAT negotiator TJ Raines and SWAT doc Parker Woods stumble upon a jumper on a bridge. With no time to wait, TJ knows he must act quickly. He never expects to have to save his best friend’s life too. With lives on the line, TJ knows he’s been given a second chance to have Parker as his Dom.
Parker knows something is up with TJ and it has nothing to do with the near miss on the bridge. Distracted by the undercurrent of want as they train together, Parker forces the situation out into the open. Parker longs to have TJ as his sub, but knows he must convince TJ he’s the right Dom to teach him what it means to be a sub.
Afraid to open his heart, TJ gives Parker his body to dominate. TJ knows he can trust Parker with his body, but can he trust him with his heart too?
Q. What do you do when you’re not writing?
A. I love to workout, hike, play with the guys, and visit with friends when I’m not working. I work a ton, so it’s often a challenge to balance work/life/family. My boys keep me busy.
Q. How can your fans find you on the net?
A. I have five books out on Amazon now, One Hot Night, Hot & Humid, Rock Hard, Stolen Moment, and High Heat. I’m on twitter. You can also find me on Facebook. I love hearing from my readers. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Late one night, Chef Colin Andrews flips his car off the road into a stream. He is close to death when he’s saved by firefighter-medic Quinn “Cav” Cavanaugh, an ex-coworker that could’ve been more. As Colin is pulled from the wreckage, he knows fate is giving him one last chance to have Cav.
Cav is back, and he’s not letting go of Colin. Yes, he walked away two years ago to become a firefighter-medic, but he’s not about to leave again. Cav is a Dom and always wanted Colin as his sub. Now, all he has to do is seduce Colin to his playroom without scaring him with the needs he has.
Colin has always longed to be a sub. Forced to dominate his kitchen, Colin wants to let go in the bedroom. Colin knows he can trust Cav with his body, but can he trust him with his heart too?
They were really going to do this again, and there was nothing Colin could do to stop Quinn. Both knew that once Quinn set his mind to something, he always got what he wanted in the end. Colin squirmed, trying to push him away, but he knew it was useless to try to get away from the solid wall of man holding him down. The flex of his hips only made his hard cock jump up and down for more.
“Stop fucking with me.”
Quinn grinned. “Don’t worry. You’ll know when I’m fucking with you, babe. You’ll be calling my name when you do get fucked by me.”
“Stop teasing me.”
“I’m not teasing you. I’m promising you, babe.”
Colin groaned. Quinn was playing on all his weaknesses. The simple endearment made him want to strip in the rain and have sex up against the truck. Quinn’s lips brushed back and forth, sending shivers over Colin’s heated and sensitive lips. Quinn licked out, wetting his lips with the heat of his tongue, and brushed his lips back and forth again. He knew Quinn was testing his patience, trying to provoke him with his erotic dance. Colin growled and nipped out, catching Quinn’s lower lip between his teeth. He sucked Quinn’s lip into his mouth.
Quinn moaned and shoved his lips over Colin’s with a groan of desperation that sent a shockwave through Colin’s body. Their mouths fought for dominance, and as always, Colin was shocked by the sweet hardness of Quinn’s lips. Quinn shuddered as their tongues flicked and caressed. Colin felt a thrill shoot through his body as Quinn’s hand moved down his chest to thumb his nipple.
Quinn jerked away as his thumb rolled his sensitive nipple.
He pulled away, just enough to pull Colin’s T-shirt up over his chest. Light glinted off the twin loops pierced through his nipples.
“Oh, for the love...” Quinn groaned. “Those are different from the ones I saw after the accident.”
Colin looked down at his chest. His pecks were manly and defined. They tapered down into a series of muscle that was the definition of what it meant to have an eight-pack. There was only smooth skin all the way down to his navel. Then things changed. A thick happy trail of strawberry-blond hair went all the way down to his pubic area. Quinn’s thumbs worked over each nipple, making him arch into his touch. He’d forgotten how good it felt to have a man play with his nipples.
Quinn’s mouth dove to his chest to lick out over his hard nipple, sucking it and the loop into his mouth. Colin heard the clank of metal hit Quinn’s teeth as he sucked harder. Colin hissed in a harsh breath as Quinn’s hips worked over his, causing his cock to flex out hard. Their cocks brushed closer and closer. Quinn released his nipple only to dive for the other one. Colin groaned as Quinn nipped his nipple into his mouth, sucking eagerly. He releases his nipple and reached out and pinched both with his thumb and forefinger. Quinn rolled his nipples as his gaze held strong.
“I know you want me to take control,” Quinn said. “I’m going to take control of you. I’m going to take care of you.”
Colin’s cock shuddered with pent-up frustration. Pre-cum wept from his dick with each stroke of Quinn’s penis against his. The jerk of Quinn’s hips was too much. Sensations flowed over him in a rough tide, and he knew he was losing control. Colin grabbed Quinn’s wrists, trying to stop him from the impending explosion that was about to happen in his pants. If he stopped him now...
“Tie me up,” Colin begged. “I want to be your sub. Dominate me.”
“Pick a color as your safe word,” Quinn said.
Colin gasped as Quinn grabbed his wrists, forcing them up over his head. He pinned them to the window. The strap of the seat belt was wrapped around his hands and tightened. Colin gave it a yank as Quinn moved down over his chest.
“I don’t want you thinking about anything. You think too much about us. You’re my sub now. You’re going to do what I say,” Quinn said.
Clothing rustled within the darkness, and a blindfold was tied around Colin’s eyes. Colin’s heart was beating out of his chest as Quinn smoothed his hands down his chest, jerking his pants down past his ass. Colin’s cock sprang from his pants, hitting Quinn in the face.
Wet heat licked over Colin’s cock. Colin bit his lip, trying to keep his sauce from shooting from his prick as he groaned. The sound of a zipper heading south had Colin’s mouth watering. Strong thighs braced Colin’s chest as Quinn took more control. The tip of Quinn’s cock brushed over Colin’s lips. A hand fisted into Colin’s hair.
