Tell Me About it Tuesday Welcomes Morticia Knight!

I am really excited to welcome another fantastic fellow TEB author on this week's Tell Me About it Tuesday!!!

Welcome multipublished, and all around lovely, Morticia Knight!

About Morticia:

Erotic Romance author Morticia Knight enjoys a good saucy tale, whether it is contemporary, paranormal, historical, ménage, M/M or BDSM - she loves it all! One of her passions is bringing people's fantasies to life on the page, because life is too short for even one boring moment. Her stories are volcanic in heat, deep in emotion, and sprinkled with doses of humor.

When not indulging in her passion for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She currently resides on the northern coast of Oregon, where the constant rain and fog remind her of visits to her family in England and Scotland when she was a child.

Check out our interview! It's cool!

Q. Do you do any special research for your novels?

Oh yes. I never realised how many little details go into even contemporary novels that are set in an area I’m familiar with. If I say something as mundane as “they headed west towards…” and people who know that locale inside and out will think “she has no idea what she’s talking about!” But more significantly, it takes the reader out of the story, and that’s always a bad thing.

Q. What’s your favorite genre to read? Do you write it?

This might sound odd, but I love memoirs. It doesn’t 
necessarily have to be about a famous person. I’ve been working on a memoir for quite a while, but my naughty boys keep taking up my time. I mean the ones in my books! But I also love a good Highland romance *wink*

Q. What are you working on right now? Can you tell us about it?
It’s a new MM series set in a recent historical era. The rest of the details are being kept under wraps, but it will follow the journey of the same character through all of the books.

Q. Did you ever write a character you didn’t like? Or one that gave you problems, going against your intentions for them or your story?

In one of my earlier BDSM books, one of the characters was so unlikeable, that even though his attitude was essential to how the other characters behaved and responded, I still wanted to smack him!

Okay...enough with the business questions! How about some fun stuff. You know, just between the two of us.

Q. The opportunity to go on a surprise vacation arises. You have 90 minutes to pack and get to the airport. Where will you go and what will you pack?

Hawaii – probably Maui. I would pack my snorkel gear.

Q. When YOU read, what do you like to pick up?

As before – memoirs. My favourites are Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris and Jenny Larsen. And in addition to hunky Highlanders, I love historicals and sci-fi. I guess everything in between doesn’t do it for me!

Q. If they make a movie about your life, who do you want to play your part?

Oooh, good one. I’m a million years older than her – but Jennifer Lawrence would be my pick. She is such a great actress she could even make me look good *snort*

Q. Tell us one thing about you that might surprise us...it can be a secret...we won't tell. :)

I used to be the lead singer in an indie rock band that toured and recorded. Aah – the bad ol’ days. Never go to Hollywood kids ;-)

Now for my fave part!!!!!!! Let's hear about that new book! (Seriously yummy cover, right?)


Native American Quinn and Detective Jake come from two opposing worlds. But when opposites attract, the result is explosive.

The Bondage Butcher has just claimed his third victim, and newly promoted homicide detective Jake Gutierrez is anxious to speak to the one man who has been intimate with all three victims—Quinn Verdugo. The reclusive and mysterious artist and poet stays just out of Jake’s grasp, until one night when they catch him trespassing at his ancestor’s ancient ruins.

Quinn is devastated by the recent murders, and for the men he once dallied with. Not trusting his heart to anyone since a cruel rejection in his teens, he trusts the police department of Mesa, Arizona even less. He is determined to find the bastard who is committing these gruesome murders, and take care of things himself.

When Jake and Quinn finally meet face to face in the interrogation room, both men are startled at the direction things take. Agreeing to work together, they have no idea the dangers they have yet to face. But what is more dangerous – the murderer, or the spark that has been created between the two very combustible men.


He was in dangerous territory by staying alone with the man at his place. There couldn’t be any nonsense going on between them. Besides, Quinn hadn’t exactly invited him over, he had just barged his way in. Now he was feeling foolish. Had he overstepped his boundaries? It was just that he’d been so upset when Quinn had told him about the previous night—a knot of fear had settled in his stomach at the thought of that sick bastard being alone with Quinn, touching him, getting ready to do God-knows-what.

He would be completely professional. He was only there to keep watch. That was it.

It was going to be a long night.

He also needed to head to the station early in the morning to make sure that the whole poetry night sting was set, and brief the lieutenant on his progress. Plus, he had to follow up on the list Quinn had given him of previous partners. He couldn’t just remain glued to Quinn’s side, even if that did seem like a nice idea.

Down boy.

He could feel a stirring in his jeans, and wasn’t sure all the resolve in the world would help him if he were to arrive at Quinn’s place with a hard-on.

They got there ten minutes later, and Jake felt he had himself under control. It was a gorgeous starry night, and he marvelled at the display in the sky this far out from the city lights. That was one of his favourite things about the desert—everything seemed much purer out there.

He jumped out of his truck as Quinn languidly got out of his car then walked towards him. He had the briefest sensation the man was going to punch him or something, because his pace quickened and he moved with such intent. The light from the waning full moon illuminated Quinn’s graceful and sexy form as he drew nearer. Just as he got to him, Quinn reached out, grabbed the back of Jake’s head and clamped his mouth onto Jake’s lips.

His breath was startled right out of him, but all he could do was melt against Quinn’s muscled body, and reach up to twine his fingers in the man’s glorious mane of hair. This was exactly what he wasn’t supposed to be doing, but all reason and sanity had disappeared once Quinn had locked lips with his.

There was nothing polite or reserved in the kiss. It was raw and feral, and everything Jake had dreamt it would be. They used their hands everywhere on each other’s body, as Quinn continued to plunder Jake’s mouth. He felt himself being guided towards Quinn’s front door. At some point, Quinn managed to get it open—no lock as he’d said—and they stumbled inside, still tangled up with each other. Quinn kept pushing Jake farther in, and he began to feel the smallest stirrings of concern.

It’s not right. I shouldn’t—not yet. 

Dang. HOT. I wanna read it. NOW! Don't you?
