Day 19 – 30 Days of Christmas

Today is a special day because it’s release day for my friend Tara Lain. Her holiday story is sure to bring one lucky winner much joy! Here’s what Tara has to say about this story.

“Mistletowed is a quirky, ensemble erotic romance for the holidays.  Here’s a little idea: When a straight guy starts longing for another man’s cock, when a navel-staring hippy hankers after a beautiful yuppie, and two men begin calling an airy-fairy granola girl “Mistress”, is it love or is it mistletoe?

It starts with five good friends, two M/F couples and their gay friend. Add in two new friends– a bisexual rock god and a submissive stockbroker. Mix them all together with some magical mistletoe and you get M/M, M/F, M/M/F with light BDSM. Something for everyone you might say!”

Below is information on the book and Tara. For a chance to win, just leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time tonight.

M/M, M/F, M/M/F erotic contemporary menage



Five friends, one piece of mistletoe. Christian Elliott has the perfect life — right girlfriend, right job, right house and car. How come he’s only really happy when he’s with his best friend, Jason? Melanie Cantrell has everything she wants. Why can’t she stop cheating on her boyfriend with her yoga teacher? Buttercup Allender adores her stable life with Winston.  But she can’t give up her secret desire for BDSM. Stir them all together at a holiday party with a beautiful rock god and a submissive stockbroker and what do you get? It could be love and it could be magic.

Tara Lain never met a beautiful boy she didn’t love – at least on paper. A writer of erotic romance, mostly ménage and male/male, Tara loves all her characters, but especially her handsome heroes. A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara only fell in love with EROM in 2009 and, through perseverance and lots of workshops, had the first novel she ever wrote published in January of 2011. After an exotic life of travel all over the world and work in television, education and advertising, Tara settled in Southern California with her soul-mate husband and opened her own small marketing business. She paints, collages, and started practicing yoga “way before it was fashionable”. Passionate about diversity, justice, inclusion and new ideas, she says on her tombstone it will read, “Yes”.

Happy release day to Tara and Happy Holidays to all!

    Sounds like an interesting party. It will be interesting to see if it’s a one night thing or if the couples stay changed up. (Not a fan of the cover though.)

    • Tara Lain says:

      Hi Anne– Thanks so much for coming by. PL Nunn’s covers are a very particular taste. I adore them but not everyone likes that style. You can always bet that i’m going to go for the happily ever after! : )

    You know, it is so wonderful to know I am not alone in enjoying so “many” forms of sex and kink, I always thought there were MANY fun ways to make love too! I am glad to see authors branching out over the years into previously forbidden writing territory. It’s so refreshing! Congratulations on your release Tara!
