TnT Confidential: Tamsin Baker

Looky, looky! I have another wonderful author visiting TnT Confidential for the first time! Her name is Tamsin Baker and she's here with a delicious erotic romance called Eternal Hearts. 

For five hundred years, vampires Nathaniel and Michael have loved each other. But without their third mate, they feel empty and incomplete.

Lady Margaret Tonnington is a recent widow who has finally got some control over her life. The last thing she wants or expects are two male vampires, both claiming to need her. She is shocked by the strength of their passion for each other and wants to be a part of that love.

But Michael and Nathaniel want to bind her to them forever. Margaret is hesitant to change her life and fights to stay human. A compromise will be almost impossible, however it is essential for her vampire mates' lives that she does.

Welcome Tamsin to In A Dream Beyond!

Since it’s your first visit I have to ask the question: when did you start writing and why? 

Well, I wrote a lot of poetry at high school, but stopped doing anything creative once Year 12 and University kicked in. I picked up the writing about 5 years ago, but only got serious about it about 12 months ago. Why? Because I love it.

What’s your favorite part of the writing process? How about your least favorite? 

Well, my favorite part of the publishing process is the cover art J Writing- I love those first few chapters where the story is developing so fast in my head, my fingers can barely keep up with the movie that’s running before my eyes. Least? Hmmm, if I’ve been silly enough not to write from start to finish, I don’t really enjoy pulling all the pieces together. Sometimes they don’t fit very well and I have to re-write- which I hate.

Where does your inspiration stem from? 

Mostly submission calls. I love having parameters to write to. Or I just think- I haven’t tried shifters yet- I may just have a go at that.
Tell us a secret about your upcoming release: 

Bonded Hearts? It was REALLY fun to write. I’d never written a MMM before, and the logistics of the sex scenes were a little difficult to begin with, but they can be a LOT of fun J

In three to five words, why will we fall in love with the main characters of this novel?

Their passion for each other

What’s next for Tamsin? 

The next two of my vampire trilogy, then my shifter series.Also, I have an m/m contemporary coming out.

Lightening round all around:

Favorite time of day  - 8-10pm

Coffee or Tea – yuck, peppermint tea if I have to.

Sweet or spicy – SWEET!

Left or right - left

Top or bottom - top

Best song to make love to – I don’t hear so well during this activity- will have to get back to you.

Favorite historical period – Regency!

A place you’d love to travel to – Greece

A personal anecdote… If it doesn’t float your boat, fine, but you don’t have any right to judge anyone else.

Excerpt anyone?

Just after seven the following evening, Nathaniel dragged a reluctant Michael into the same brothel he always frequented. His mate needed to be completely under control when they met Margaret again.
She truly did smell like Heaven. Untold pleasure awaited them.
The Madame nodded at Nathaniel, and he headed towards the room he knew she left open for her “different” clientele. Michael followed close on his heels.
What the hell are we doing here, Nathaniel? I need to see Margaret.”
Nathaniel clenched his jaw and groaned as his fangs extended over his bottom lip. The mere mention of Margaret’s name had his blood-lust surging to the forefront of his mind.
I know you do. I feel it, too. But if we don’t feed before we see her, we will never be able to control ourselves.”
Michael grunted and threw himself into a nearby chair, the disgruntled picture of a thwarted child.
We shouldn’t need to. I could turn her tonight and then spend the rest of eternity making her love us.”
Nathaniel rolled his eyes. He had already tried to explain to Michael what they needed to do. Michael wasn’t in total agreement. But what did he know about the emotional needs of others? He had spent five hundred years taking Nathaniel’s love and never returning it in a vocal sense. Nathaniel knew that Margaret would need everything, soft touches, loving words, and the actions. Between them, they could woo her and win her.
Michael, we don’t want her turning spiteful and denying us. We know she is meant for us, but we have to convince her of that.”
Oh, bull. I shouldn’t have to wait.” Michael jumped to his feet, as impatient as ever. He grabbed at the door handle to leave, and Nathaniel lost his temper. He moved in front of his mate and pushed him back with all the angry force he could master.
Listen to me, you selfish bastard. I have stayed in London for almost my entire five hundred years.  I didn’t go missing on the Continent for a century. You were the one who left Michael, not me. I have wanted her, needed her for as long as you have, and I will not let you fuck this up!”

Michael’s mouth fell open, and Nathaniel grunted as two whores walked into the room.
They were plain faced but clean enough and smelled decent.
Now let’s get this over and done with so we can begin the rest of our lives.”
Michael’s blue eyes shimmered with unshed tears, before nodding and sitting down in his chair. Nathaniel’s relief was overwhelming. He had won.
I’ll take the brunette.”
The brown haired whore sauntered towards Michael, and he looked her over with a very mild interest. She sat in his lap and tilted her head for him. He exposed his fangs and held her to him whilst he bit her, almost reluctantly.
Nathaniel had to laugh as he pulled the blonde into his arms and sank his teeth into her neck. He always preferred blondes.

About the author

Tamsin Baker is an Aussie girl who only found erotic romance about ten months ago. Before that she read sexy romance, skipping the plot looking for the ‘good bits.’ Since then she have written and obtained 14 contracts of varying lengths with erotic romance and erotica. She absolutely LOVES reading and writing it! She have two other jobs, kids and a hubby too, but writing is a passion that she has to indulge, for fear of insanity.
M/M is a passion of hers so even in her menage stories, there is always M/M. Female domme is a fun one to write too, but she is open to all genres. One step at a time she is learning to read more and write more. Soon she’ll have stories published in every sub genre of erotic romance – or that is her aim anyway.
