Welcome to in A Dream Beyond Robin/Tyler! Tell us about your recent release Immortal Thirst

The newest addition to the Tyler Robbins’ erotic romance list is a steamy little story called “Immortal Thirst”.

Vampire, Tristan Deveraux, savored the night with his young progeny, Caleb, by his side. Satisfying his shameless desires, he took what he wanted without reprisal or regret, until Gauge Roberts darkened his door.
Gauge, an ex-Navy Seal, offered more than muscles and brawn when he became Tristan’s personal security coordinator. Surrendering to an undeniable attraction, the dominating soldier scratched an itch both had ignored far too long.

 A remarkable bond is quickly formed between the three very different men, allowing each to fulfill individual needs while maintaining separate but equal relationships, until a surprising enemy threatens to destroy it all.

Will they survive the deadly fight, or is heartbreak the only price for satisfying their kind’s immortal thirst?

A m/m/m/ romance… why?

In all honesty, when the idea of Immortal Thirst was first born, I had no idea there would be a ménage situation.

I learned three things rather quickly, though: Tristan would never be the type to cheat; Gauge would never intentionally come between lovers unless he was invited; and Caleb was far too important to both of the other men, so he wasn’t going anywhere either.

All three bring very important aspects to the relationship which creates a perfect fit. I don’t know if I could ever share the man I loved, but these guys figured out how to make it work.

What was your greatest challenge when writing this novel?

With this novel, the greatest challenge was making sure each man was portrayed as strong, honorable men in their own right. No wimpy vampires here.

Although each have weaknesses, their strengths hold up and get them through whatever they have to face.

Hollywood has decided to make an adaptation of your novel, which actors would play the lead roles?

If Hollywood were to call, I think Gauge would best be played by Taylor Kitsch, Tristan by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Caleb by Nico Tortorella.

Taylor and Aaron were actually in a love triangle movie in 2012 called “Savages”, where they happily shared actress Blake Lively. That interesting dynamic actually inspired my muse after I realized it would indeed be a ménage.

Nico found a place in my heart more recently when he was cast as a wanna-be serial killer in a new television drama called “The Following”.

Mention one flaw and one asset of the characters of your release.

We all have flaws and assets, and these characters are no different.

Tristan’s flaw would have to be greed, but in direct contrast to that flaw, he’s often the first to share.

Gauge’s flaw would be his hero complex. He thinks he’s the only one who can save the day, much to the dismay of his capable lovers. His asset would be the same trait. He’d sacrifice himself to save the ones he loves.

Caleb’s flaw would have to be always putting other’s needs before his own no matter what it costs him. There’s good reason for that, but fortunately, there’s also plenty of room for change. His greatest asset would have to be his fierce loyalty. No matter what, he’s a man of his word.

You write under two names, Tyler Robbins and Robin Badillo… what will readers find on one and the other?

Tyler Robbins writes GLBT erotic romance. Most have either a military-type theme or a southern setting. So far, “Immortal Thirst”, and “Beyond Honor” have both.

Robin Badillo writes contemporary romance, usually southern themed, paranormal or a mixture of both as well. Though Robin’s stories are all male/female in nature, the heat levels range from sensual romance to erotic.

What are you currently working on?

At the moment, Tyler has just completed another M/M southern themed erotic romance where the hero falls for his best friend’s brother. And their closeted romance isn’t the only secret being kept in their small town.
In One Beautiful Lie, the secrets are often bigger than the state of Texas.

A little more on the author…

A traditional morning for you would be:

My alarm goes off the first time at 5 a.m. for the sole purpose of waking my 15yr old daughter for school so she can catch the bus.

It then goes off again at 7a.m., and I take my 17yr old, high school senior to school. She has late arrival, and doesn’t have her driver’s license yet.

When I return, I check emails, set up my blog posts, check Facebook groups for theme day postings, then start writing. I juggle all of the above between retrieving kids from school, fussing with my spoiled dogs and visiting with my oldest son before he leaves for work. On really crazy days, I actually leave the house for extended periods to run errands.

Most days the television is never turned on, and I have my first munchie break around 2 p.m. It’s a vicious cycle, but somebody has to do it.

Currently reading: I just started reading, “Taming His Beast” by Marie Medina.

Favorite movie: A tossup between “Savages” and “Lawless”. I like my movies gritty and action packed.

One place you’d like to visit in your life time: Most of our family vacations were spent in Mexico with my late husband’s family, so now I would love to see more of the U.S. and Canada.

You’re falling asleep on your keyboard, you… wake up with silver glitter on my face because the stickers my kids bought to replace the letters I’ve worn off, were sparkly.

That song that pops into your head at random times is: “Baby I like it” by Enrique Iglesias. I have no idea why.

Tyler Robbins is the pen name of author Robin Badillo, who lives in a small Texas town and is the mother of four nearly grown kids, two boys and two girls.
Tyler enjoys stepping out of her comfort zone and pushes the envelope on the stories she writes every chance she gets. She hopes her readers are just as thrilled as she is with the chances she’s taking.

Always the optimist, Tyler is a firm believer that grey hair is merely God’s graffiti!

Want to read an EXCERPT?

Unable to stand another second of the incredible orgasm, Tristan withdrew then collapsed onto the sofa. His mind whirled with warring thoughts of Gauge and then of Caleb. How would his protégé react to Tristan’s desires for the other man? Did he owe his creation an explanation at all? 

They’d shared lovers before, but this was different. Tristan didn’t want Gauge for a kinky romp. Part of him wanted to keep the hybrid around for a while, and that was quite a contrast from the current arrangement he shared with Caleb.

Now, if Tristan could only get past the fact that Gauge intended to kill his brother. Wrapping his head around that information would take a little more time.

Caleb got up and stood before Tristan, his spent cock dangling in Tristan’s face.

“Sorry I didn’t return the favor.” Guilt weighed heavily on Tristan’s mind, knowing all too well he’d only reached orgasm this time because he’d been fixated on his lust for Gauge.

“You always satisfy me, sire.” Caleb’s sweet smile encouraged one in return from Tristan.

He took his lover’s hand in his and caressed his fingers. “Stay with me tonight?”

“As you wish.”

Tristan rose from the sofa and headed for the door while Caleb remained behind to oversee the removal of the food he’d prepared for their guest, and to make sure any remnants of their own meal hadn’t been left behind. Caleb was quite thorough with his duties.

As Tristan entered the hallway, he found Gauge leaning against the wall a few yards away from the door.

When their eyes met, Tristan’s stomach fluttered with excitement. He sauntered toward him, his body reacting to Gauge in ways he’d never experienced with other men, not even Caleb. “Been here long?”

Gauge drew in a deep breath and exhaled. “Long enough to know Kathryn Guthrie knew what the fuck she was doing after all.”

Though intrigued by the reply, Tristan fought hard not to let on. “How so?”

Gauge started toward him until they met in the middle. His scent had deepened, adopting a musky, feral aroma that made Tristan’s balls tighten and pulse with need.
Tristan backed against the wall.

Gauge towered over him, muscular arms settling on both sides of Tristan’s head as he pinned him in. “Make no mistake. When I decide to give you what you want, you need to know that I won’t settle for anything less than all of you.”

A worrisome pinch irritated Tristan’s side. “Caleb is my—”

“I’m not talking about that. Caleb serves his purpose well, and I’m sure I’ll find use of his talents quite pleasing myself, but where our business is concerned, your head better be in the game or I’ll make you regret it.”

Tristan swallowed hard and nodded. Gauge leaned in and barely skimmed his lips across Tristan’s. Just as Tristan responded and moved in for more, Gauge pulled back and walked away without a second glance.
