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 had the first novel she ever wrote accepted for publication in 2011. She’s now on book 27 and counting. 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”.

Tara Lain I'm really excited about the release of Driven Snow Driven Snow because it contains one of my quirkiest heroes ever. Snow Reynaldi is a brilliant chess master -- and a shy, weird, nerd who has entire conversations with himself. I loved writing him. I know the cover model looks young, but he's actually about Snow's age -- 20. : )

I don't know if you read the menages, but the 4th book in the Genetic Attraction Series will be out on July 24th. It's called Genetic Celebrity. And right now i'm writing the next book to follow Spell Cat. That should be out in the fall. Whew. I think i'm busy. : )

Hi Lei-- Good to know about that "dash of female". Among my books, Golden Dancer is all guys as is Volley Balls, but my recent release Deceptive Attraction is a M/M/F menage and part of the Genetic Attraction series. And the holiday release, Mistletowed, that comes out Dec 13 has it all! MM, MF, and MMF. Something for everyone. You'll find a lot of MM on my shelves because i tend to read in that genre. Have you ever read Love at First Bight? I remember it as a book i liked and it's MMMF but told mostly in the female POV. : )
