Erotic Bondage in the Dungeon with Malia Mallory!

Malia Mallory
Erotic Romance

      Welcome to the Dungeon! I'm with the ever sexy Malia to talk about her erotic bondage books...one of my favorite topics! After our chat with her, I hope all of you enjoy your tour today of the rooms in my Dungeon! Shall we get started?

Tonya:  Malia, welcome! Thank you for spending this week with us. Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself. 

Malia:  Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. I've been writing a long time, but I've been published for about two years. I'm married and have a child. I do write erotica but some of my more recent releases have shifted more into the erotic romance category.

Tonya:  Do you have a day job?

Malia:  At present, I'm staying home with my daughter and working on my writing. However, I've had a variety of jobs in the past in the education, legal and training areas.
.
Tonya:  Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?

Malia:  I do listen to music, usually instrumental. Sometimes I read a little bit to get my mind going.

Tonya:  Where do you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?

Malia:  They seem to want to come to me just as I'm falling asleep! Seriously though, I do have to keep some paper by the bed.

Tonya:  If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?

Malia:  It is very challenging to be responsible for every aspect. On one hand, if I have a crappy cover, it's my own fault. On the other hand, it is hard to have all the skills to do everything myself. Fortunately, there are many great people who do have the skills.

Tonya:  Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?

Malia:  I do like to be alone and have quiet. I'm easily distracted. With a little one in the house, my time is limited actually.

Tonya:  What advice would you give to new authors?

Malia:  Write, write and write some more. Research the genre you want to publish in. Get professional help with editing, formatting and covers.

Tonya:  Doing it all is very time consuming! Your covers are all very sexy! Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks? 

Malia:  I've done it both ways. Sometimes I find a reference picture that is close to what I was thinking and sometimes I just write down the characteristics in a profile.

Tonya:  What attracts you most about men?

Malia:  Oooh. Good question. I have to say…hands and smile (teeth!). I really like nice, strong masculine hands and I'm also partial to a great smile.

Tonya:  We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?

Malia:  My newest release is His Passion, Her Temptation. It's the fourth book in a series. Monica finds herself interested in a man who happens to be the son of her father's business nemesis. Despite her misgivings, she can't help herself from becoming involved with him. You can imagine how well that goes over. In addition, someone is trying to take over her family's business, which leads to suspicion all around.

Tonya:  Where can our readers find you and your books?

Malia:  My books are available at all the major eBook retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iTunes, All Romance eBooks, Kobo, Sony, Smashwords and Bookstrand.

Tonya:  Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?

Malia:  Please say hi either on Facebook or Twitter!

Tonya:  Let's do a few fun questions. What is your favorite night time snack?

Malia:  That's tough because I'm really trying to cut back on the sugar. I have to admit to being quite partial to pineapple. In fact, I had some earlier!

Tonya:  Do you like toppings on your ice cream?

Malia:  Yes yes! I love ice cream and if it has toppings…that's cool too!

Tonya:  What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?

Malia:  All three of those are good! I had some wonderful Thai take out for dinner. Unfortunately, good Mexican and Italian are not that common here. However, we do have great local food and I'm a fan of teriyaki beef.

His Passion, Her Temptation Blurb:


Granger Pharma executive Monica Granger is hiding her relationship from her family. She has to. Her lover is the son of her father's biggest business rival. Ben Coron is more than Monica can resist; he's everything she's ever wanted—including dominant in bed.
But when Coron Health makes a play for Granger Pharma, Monica's relationship—and her life—blow wide open. She loses her job, and her family rejects her. Someone's stealing Granger's vital trade secrets, and worse, Monica's brother is dodging attempts on his life.
Their passion is too strong to keep Monica and Ben apart for long. They must thwart the takeover and heal the rift between their families. If they don't, they'll never trust one another enough to pursue the dominance and submission they both need.

His Passion, Her Temptation Excerpt:


"So, do you want to eat now … or later?" Monica's smile turned seductive.
"Well, I think I might need you first." His hand reached to touch the silkiness of her hair.
"I agree. Food can wait." Monica pulled his head down and kissed him, greedy to taste his lips.

Without breaking the kiss, Ben guided her out of the hallway into the living room.

Monica slipped her finger under the edge of his collar. "You know, it doesn't seem fair that you get to call all the shots."

"Oh? I call all the shots?" Ben's hands roamed to her rear and squeezed.

"Yes … you decide when and how …" Monica licked the edge of his lip.

"One, that isn’t quite true, and two, I haven't heard you complaining." He gave her a playful pinch on the ass.

"Oh no, I'm not complaining." Her hand moved to the front of his pants, cupping him.

"Then what?" His hands slid down to the back of her thighs.

"I thought it might be fun to … try a little something else." She rubbed him through the fabric of his pants.

"What did you have in mind?" Ben swept his hands up her back and tangled his fingers in her hair.

Monica tilted her head back. "Do you recall that night before I left for Hawaii?"

"I do believe it is burned into my memory."

"Sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't be interesting to reverse things." Monica observed his face for a reaction.

"Reverse things?"

"Oh yes." Her finger laid a trail down the front of his chest. "You," she poked him gently, "would do as I say."

"I see. Are you finding you have a dominant streak?" he teased.

"I'm not sure, but I have a desire to find out." The thought of taking charge appealed to Monica, not all the time, but perhaps occasionally.

Ben smiled. "That sounds … enticing."

"I hoped you'd think so." Monica walked around him, patting his ass with her palm.

"How would you start?"

"I'd tell you to disrobe for my viewing pleasure." Monica enjoyed looking at the hard planes of Ben's body, so different from her own curves.

"Shall I?"

"Oh, yes." Monica crossed the few steps to the seating area and settled herself into an upholstered chair.

Ben approached Monica and then turned his back toward her. He loosened his tie and pulled it free, tossing it over his shoulder in Monica's direction before unbuttoning his shirt and letting the fabric fall to the floor. He turned slightly and caught her eye. Monica flushed under his wicked gaze.
