Guest Blogger: Tatum Throne ~ Erotic Romance Author

January 16, 2013

Today, my guest blogger is Tatum Throne. Her latest book, Training TJ, an M/M erotic romance is due to be released on 30th January. Read on to find out more…

*Excited Waves* Thank you Jan 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.

A. 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 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. My friends would say I’m loyal and a great listener. That’s my social work background coming out! *laughs*

Q. What’s on the horizon?

A. Training Ryan [Hard Hits 2] was just accepted by Siren. Look for that in March. 🙂

Q. How do you come up with all those sex scenes?

A. *blushes* I knew you would ask. I think creativity in the bedroom is what I think about when I go to write them, and of course, I have to go where my characters lead me. I’ve had to tie my hubby up a few times to make sure a scene will work the right way. I don’t think he minds too much. *grins*

Q. What do you do when you’re not writing?

A. I love to do zumba, 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. Tell us something that no one knows about you.

A. I tell people all the time that my writing makes me blush. *laughs* It really does! When I think about people I know reading my work, I just want to pop my fingers in my ears and say la-la-la-la! It’s not that I’m prim. I’m not. *grins* It’s just that I have virgin ears. This is where my friends tell me I’m F.O.S. *laughs*

Q. How can your fans find you on the net?

A. I have five books out on Amazon now, One Hot NightHot & HumidRock 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:

Adult Excerpt

Parker came in close. His voice was low and bordered on threatening. It turned TJ the fuck on. His cock hummed, begging to be tugged on. He wanted Parker to be doing all the tugging.

“I decide what I want and when I want it. You won’t decide for me.”

A shudder of desire vibrated through TJ’s cock, making pre-cum weep from the tip. His heart raced for all the right reasons. What if he let go with Parker? What if he said yes again to another forbidden kiss? TJ got off on Parker taking control on the mats. It was one of the reasons TJ liked training with him when he could. Parker pressed his hands against the wall, blocking him in. He leaned down so close that they were eye to eye.

“I decide what I want. Not you,” Parker said.

Heat shimmered in those blue eyes, making TJ’s mouth go dry. It felt as though Parker was marking his territory by drawing a line in the sand. What would happen if TJ crossed that line? TJ so wanted to find out. “You don’t want a fuck-up like me. Trust me.”

“Say it one more time. I dare you.”

Parker’s threat was too good to ignore. Maybe TJ wanted this fight. Maybe he wanted to be punished. Maybe he wanted this fight with Parker to get his mind off other things. He leaned in closer, so that they were only a breath away. “I’m a fuck-up. You don’t want me.”

A growl came out low from Parker, sending an exotic tremor of anticipation through TJ’s body. “You asked for it.”

TJ was knocked off his feet and flung into the island with a controlled force that rattled his teeth together. Parker was holding back. He could do more damage. He was just proving a point right now. Parker locked his arms under TJ’s. A thick cock pressed between the crack of TJ’s ass, making him groan in surprise. TJ had to buck the urge to rub his ass up and down on that pole. The feel of Parker’s cock tight against his body had him almost ready to give up the fight.


Right now, he was scared that Parker was changing the rules of their relationship without his consent.  “Release me.”

Parker’s lips brushed over his ear. “No. Not until you take it back. You will not say you’re a fuck-up ever again.”

TJ’s heart raced. He was serious. He wanted him to take back the truth of how he felt and what he was when the lights went out at night. Parker’s hold tightened, and his hips rubbed hard. His cock pressed solidly between the crack of TJ’s ass, thumping hard against his anus.

TJ was breathing hard. “Why do you care?”

“I just do.”


“Say it.”

“I can’t.”

Tension eased from Parker’s arms as he loosened his hold. Parker dropped his hands to the island, blocking them in. Heat licked over TJ’s neck as Parker dropped his mouth, kissing his way over his nape. A shiver went through his body as he magically found his erogenous zone with no trouble at all.

“Turn around.”

The command came on a long husky note accented with a sharp staccato of hurry up. TJ obeyed and was shocked when Parker came in fast and hard with a brutally honest kiss. There was an animalistic quality to his kiss that made TJ feel owned. All the pent-up fascination and desire TJ felt for Parker exploded into a white hot need of desperation. TJ didn’t want to chain down the lust he was feeling. He wanted this and he wanted it now.

Parker’s cock flexed hard through his jeans, causing pre-cum to spill from TJ’s cock in response. TJ wanted to get down and dirty, fast and hard. He rubbed his hand down over Parker’s thick cock and was rewarded with a groan of approval. How far would they go and how fast should he take it? It seemed so wrong that their first kiss would lead to screwing, but TJ wasn’t going to stop this from happening. TJ cried out as Parker’s hand locked onto his cock through his jeans. He was on the edge of coming.

TJ pulled away. “I’ve waited too long for you. Stop, I’m close.”

The corner of Parker’s mouth lifted and fell into a hard line. “Don’t come yet. I have plans for you. For us.”

TJ was certain Parker could feel the hum of his cock through his pants as he gripped him tightly. TJ licked his puffy lips as he tried to make sense of what was happening between him and Parker, but deep down he didn’t want to make sense of it. He just wanted it with his best friend. Maybe it was going too fast, and he should put a stop to it before either one of them did anything they would later regret. Parker reached for the zipper on TJ’s fly.

Too late.

Parker unzipped him and muscled out his cock, palming it tightly and giving it a possessive stroke. TJ cursed as Parker stroked again, using his pre-cum for lube. “We should stop this.”

Wow! Tatum that was HOT and wicked at the same time. What happens next? I have just got to find out! A big thank you for being my guest today, and I wish you every success with your future books. Congratulations on your latest acceptance from Siren. By the way, I love the cover for Training TJ!
