Tamsin Baker read sexy romance for years, skipping the story to find the 'good bits'. When she found Erotic romance and Erotica, it was like coming home to people who understood what she needed in her books. When it was time to write, the world expanded and she knew this was what she wanted to do forever.
Tasmin's romance is definitely up there in heat level. In fact she had to send me a second excerpt after pulling the first one because she felt it was too hot for a blog post. Believe me it was!
Truth Be Told is about Patrick, a gorgeous, gay, corporate lawyer who wants to stay firmly in the closet. When he goes to a new club in search of a one-night stand, he is picked up by Liam.
Liam is big, beautiful, and also a Dom. A hot and heavy night ensues leaving them both thinking there could be more to their relationship than just sex. But Liam is an out and proud gay, and he finds it insulting not to accept who you are. Patrick disagrees...and major problems occur.
If you're interested in sampling this type of erotic romance we have an excerpt following.
Truth Be Told Excerpt:
Patrick took another long suck of his chocolate heaven and
sighed. He hadn’t been this relaxed in a long time. “Hey Patrick, how are you?”
So much for being relaxed.
A familiar voice startled him, and he looked to his right and groaned, forcing a smile to his face. That would be so like her!
“Milly! What are you doing here?”
“Me?” She asked, a hand to her chest in disbelief. “I’m the one with flexible hours and long lunches. You’re the one chained to your desk who never sees the light of day. You do realize it’s Friday, don’t you?”
He tried to laugh, but it came out choked. His sister then looked over at Liam with interest and he tensed. What could he say to get out of this?
“Milly, this is a friend of mine, Liam. Liam, this is my baby sister, Milly. She’s an interior designer.”
Liam smiled a blinding smile and pulled out a chair.
“Won’t you join us Milly?”
Patrick’s heart dropped into his belly, acid burning. Yuck. Milly sat quicker than a flash, her pupils dilating. How was he
going to distract his sister? She was like a dog with a bone when her interest was peaked.
“We just ordered. Do you want something to eat?” Liam asked her.
Patrick couldn’t help the pleasure that spread through him. This guy was something special.
“No, no. I’m just meeting someone for a coffee and thought I’d take the chance to say hi to my brother. Are you a lawyer too?”
Liam smiled, but ignored the question. “Well, catch up. I’ve gotta hit the toilet. Back in a minute.”
Liam left and Patrick exhaled. He had a lot of explaining to do.
“Wow, he is so hot, Patrick.”
He laughed. She had no idea.
“Yeah, but not exactly your type, Milly.”
She looked affronted then comprehension registered.
“Oh, he’s ... gay?” she whispered.
He had to laugh again. She said it like it was a state secret.
Milly’s face dropped in disappointment for a minute then
looked straight back at him.
“I’m really impressed with you big brother. Not many straight
guys can be friends with gay ones.”
Red heat scorched his cheeks. This was the time to tell her, to
finally open up to one person in his life.
He opened his mouth, and paused, fear crippling him. He
couldn’t do it. The door of opportunity slammed shut in his face and he exhaled as pain tightened his chest.
“He’s a good guy,” he mumbled, embarrassment scorching his cheeks afresh.
Liam slid back in his chair and gave him a quizzical grin.
“So, interior design, Milly? Sounds much more interesting than being a lawyer.” Liam gave him a sideways grin and Patrick poked his tongue out before he could stop himself.
Milly laughed. “You should take days off more often, Patrick. I can’t remember the last time you looked so happy.”
She glanced over her shoulder and stood up. “Better go. Potential new client.” She bent to kiss him on the cheek, her mouth cool against his flushed face. “I’ll hopefully see you again, Liam.”
Liam smiled politely. “Maybe.”
They both watched her walk away and greet an older lady that must have been the client she was waiting to meet.
Then Liam turned steely blue eyes on him, all amusement gone. “She doesn’t know you’re gay?”
