KinkLink Series, Book Three
Amanda (Mandy) Gilchrist was just baffled by her colleague. One minute he was her rock and the next he couldn’t get away from her fast enough…only to land himself in jail. Her bosses now hate him and wouldn’t help him cross the street let alone post bail so it was up to her — except someone got to him first. What the heck was going on?
By now he must realize he needs her help… And it’s going to cost him because this time she’s not going to turn a blind eye. Mandy’s going to make sure David sees her skills as a PI and as a woman too — one he’s got ‘tied up inside and out’.
Because he may not know it yet but they’re both looking for exactly the same thing.
David aka Hack Varetti is in deep shit. A little finagling with the FBI and maybe he’ll get his life back on track but there’s no guarantees. Making the wrong associations only landed him in the clink, but now he’s got a second chance — to fix his life. And to take care of her.
Because Mandy doesn’t know it yet, but she needs something only he can give her, and he can’t wait to show her how a Dom brings his Sub to fulfillment because it’s something she’ll never forget.
Even though the last thing he wanted to do was involve her in his mess, afraid she’d get hurt. He knew, if he wanted her to trust him again, he was going to have to work for it.
Everyone’s got to learn the ropes sometime…
When and where do you prefer to write?
In my home library, rough drafting first thing after breakfast, editing later in the morning and into the afternoon.
Do you need peace and quiet when you are wrting?
For the rough drafting, yes. The door stays shut. During the day, I’m okay with the TV on in another room. If it gets too distracting, I play songs from my playlist.
If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
Wow, that’s a hard one – so many great authors! Lately I’ve been fan-girling on Skye Warren.
Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
The bad one, for sure.
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
In my day job, as a newspaper reporter, I had a chance to interview a number of fabulous authors, including Lisa See, Suzanne Brockman, and Beverly Jenkins. My dream interview would be Diana Gabaldon (Outlander series).
Where can I find you when you are reading?
Lying on the couch or bed, at the kitchen table, outside on our patio in warm weather, and inside and outside of our motorhome.
Where can I find you wen you are not writing/reading?
Binge watching Outlander, Schitt’s Creek, the Great British Baking show, or cooking and baking. I recently tackled homemade bread and bagels.
What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
Wow. How cool is this?
How do you come up with a title for your book?
I base it on a recurring theme or idea that runs through the story.
How do you pick a cover for your book?
With my small, indie publishing house, covers were suggested and I was allowed to change details, which isn’t possible in the larger publishing houses, as I understand. For my self-published KinkLink series, RC MatthewsArtist did the covers. She presented a few ideas, based on the plot of the book, and we tweaked it from that.
Thank you, Tara Eldana
About the author
I am a very recently retired, multi-award-winning staff writer for a weekly community newspaper chain in metro Detroit. I became hooked on romance fiction when my 11th grade English teacher rejected the book report I wrote, saying the book was much too easy for me, and insisted I read and report on Daphne du Maurier’s “Rebecca.” I read Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone With the Wind” that previous summer.
After some life-changing health issues, and covering over a dozen murder and criminal sexual conduct trials, I decided to write the kind of stories I like to read, stories with happy endings.
I love the romance genre and love letting my characters take control of their stories. I am a member of the Greater Detroit Romance Writers of America. I write under the pen name of Tara Eldana
