Welcome back to the Weird, the Wild, and the Wicked. Today I have the honor of hosting science fiction erotic romance author Lynn Tyler with her newest upcoming release, Their Rebel Mate. Lynn and I both publish with Siren Publishing and I share her delight in worlds beyond our own. Ms. Tyler is graciously offering an e-copy of the first book in her series, Mate for Two, to a lucky commenter.
Welcome, Lynn. Thank you for being with me today.
Thanks, Siobhan, for having me here today.
What started you on the path to becoming a romance author?
Honestly, I’ve always written for fun. It wasn’t until I was on maternity leave with my oldest child that I considered sharing my work. You see, maternity leave in Canada is twelve months and I did a lot of reading. My favourite authors couldn’t keep up with the speed that I read their books, so I decided to write what I would like to read.
It stayed private, my dream of writing professionally a quiet whisper in the back of my mind, until I got a little tipsy with two of my friends. I told them my secret and, to my surprise, they both encouraged me to look into having my work published. If it hadn’t been for them, and for the support of my husband, I never would have sent in my first book Be With Us to Siren.
Congratulations on your upcoming release of Their Rebel Mate. Introduce us to the main characters and premise of your story.
Their Rebel Mate releases on March 7, and picks up where Mate For Two left off, although they both can be read as stand alones. Basically, the Helan race has bred their female’s ability to carry female children out of their race in the quest to create the perfect male. After searching for generations for a species capable of bearing Helan young, they finally find Humans.
Of course, the perfect male is highly sexual…ahem… and Helans have not remained celibate. Instead, they have turned to other males to meet their needs, creating a race who strongly believes in ménage relationships.
Their Rebel Mate features the Helan Ambassador Thantos, his mate, Chief of Communications Kerek, and the leader of the Human resistance movement, Kim.
Sounds like a great premise. I'm interested. Did anything in particular inspire this story?
Originally, I was going to only write about the three brothers that were introduced in Mate For Two. But Thantos and Kerek had other ideas and wouldn’t let me write anything else until their story was told.
I can’t really say what my inspiration is though, because there isn’t anything in particular that inspires me to write ménage.
What made you choose the future and space as a setting for your story?
I wanted to write about a culture that not only accepted ménage relationships, but thrived on them. Since this doesn’t exist on Earth, I made up a race where it does exist!
What a cool idea. What other projects are on the horizon for you that we’re likely to see?
I’m working on a m/m werewolf book that follows up on my last release with Liquid Silver, Called to Mate. Refuge features the same pack.
Also, in April, I have Spring Mates, also a sequal to Called to Mate, will be released in a collection of short stories from Liquid Silver Books.
Thank you for joining me today, Lynn, and we look forward to all your upcoming releases!
It’s been my pleasure!

EXCERPT of Their Rebel Mate:
She tried counting sheep. Fail. She tried picturing a serene lake. Fail. She tried some deep breathing relaxation exercises. Epic fail.
In fact, the only thing she could see behind her closed lids was a whole lot of golden skin, tangled limbs, and hard cocks.
What would it be like to be in bed with so much masculinity? Her back arched at the sudden thought, and a rush of moisture gathered to coat the folds of her pussy.
Her clit throbbed, practically begging for attention, and the sounds of pleasure, getting increasingly louder and more frequent, were not helping. Flopping back on the mattress, she slid her hand down her belly until the very tips of her fingers rested just above her mound.
Did she dare?
“Kerek!” Thantos cried out for his lover, and Kim threw caution to the wind.
Fuck it. It wasn’t not like they were going to hear her own soft gasps through the noise Thantos was making. As if it had a mind of its own, Kim’s hand slipped the rest of the way down, and her index finger brushed over her straining clit.
A groan worked its way up her throat, and she applied even more pressure to the swollen little nub. Dear god, nothing had ever felt so good before. Not even her favorite purple vibrator on its highest setting gave her half as much pleasure as her single finger.
Was it something in the water? Okay, cancel that. She hadn’t had any water to drink. Something in the food then?
Whatever. All that really mattered was getting off right now.
Her pleasure ratcheted up higher, and she sped up the movements of her finger, stroking her clit in small, concentric circles in her effort to relieve some of the pressure that was building up inside her.
She groaned again, partly from pleasure and partly from frustration. None of the usual tricks were working, and her heart was racing faster than normal. Was it possible that her heart could beat fast enough to pound right out of her chest? God, she hoped her rib cage was strong enough to contain her heart because she was pretty sure her heart was about to explode.
“What the devil is going on here?” Kerek roared, breaking her out of the trance she had been in.
She jerked her hand back and blushed to the roots of her hair. “What are you doing out here?” she asked, pushing herself up and out of the bed so fast, she almost toppled over.
Kerek’s chest was pumping as he breathed, his huge cock pulsing rhythmically. “What have you done to Thantos?” he shouted, advancing on her with rage in his eyes.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” she shouted right back.
Now that the bedroom door was open, Kim could hear Thantos’s desperate whimpers. “What are you doing to him?” she demanded, storming over to the door and peeking around Kerek’s massive body.
The sight that met her eyes took her breath away.
Thantos’s wrists were trapped by some sort of cuffs, which were attached to a ring in the wall. His head was tossing on the pillow, his long red hair spread out dramatically on the crisp white sheets.
Her eyes travelled farther down Thantos’s body, taking in the nipple clamps that seemed to be vibrating, and the black plug his spread, bent legs displayed.
His dick was leaking steadily, and if the pool of fluid collecting on his lower belly was any indication, it had been for some time now.
The expression on Thantos’s face was far from serene. He looked tormented. “Help him,” she said, rushing over to him.
“What the fuck do you think I’ve been trying to do?” Kerek bellowed. “I’ve been trying to relieve some of his need, but he can’t orgasm. Why is that?”
She would have shrugged, but Thantos’s earlier words came back to her. Helan mates are highly sexual and feel the need to orgasm several times a day. Bonded mates can’t find satisfaction without their mate. “He needs you to come before he can, right?”
Kerek blew out a sigh that sounded like pure frustration. “Yes, but the kicker is I need him to come as well. Bonded mates tend to have simultaneous orgasms.”
Whoa! Sounds good. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy (hot) reading! ;)
