Come Tame Me, Book 1, Wild Fillies series-Tonya Kinzer #sex #BDSM #erotic #western

Welcome to BRB, everyone! Sorry that I'm late with this post, but I've been extremely ill. My apologies to Tonya Kinzer too. Please read to the end of her interview, there's a surprize! 

What genre do your currently write? And, is there a genre you'd like to write, but haven't tried yet?
I just released my first contemporary erotic western, Come Tame Me. Several readers wrote requesting I write something without the BDSM aspects and the western doesn’t have any include. It was hard not to tie up my cowboys but I stayed true and didn’t make one of them a Dom! I love writing the soft bondage/BDSM stories and the readers love that genre. I’d like all readers to know that if Dom/sub/soft bondage is NOT your normal genre, mine books probably are not what you want to read. Understand…you’ve been warned and my books are clearly marked if the readers bother to read the blurb and not by according to the covers! *wink*
Many authors use a nom de plume, and they may use one opposite to their own sex. Do you think an author's sex or sexual orientation should dictate what genre they write?
Not at all, although I am female! *wicked laugh* My lucky husband never knows who he goes to bed with!
Some authors have issues with character development, writer's block, plot summary etc. What is the biggest challenge you face when writing? How do you overcome the problem?
I think my main problem might be with letting my readers know exactly who my characters are, what they like…and how, what their thoughts are, etc. I’m working on that by reading the manuscript through several times and by using editors and beta readers who let me know if a character needs more info for the readers.
What has been the single most successful marketing tool you've used to date?
That’s a hard one to answer. I do many different things to promo including site ads, newsletters, gift card giveaways, blog contests, and more. Readers love gift cards and I love giving back! Be sure to get in on the contest below by leaving a comment - what’s your favorite setting and era when you read westerns? Winner gets a $10 GC on the 21st!
What are you currently reading?
I’m enjoying a western by Gem Sivad, River’s Edge. Her books take you into the setting with the characters…I love that! I hope my readers feel that as they read my books.
How do you measure success?
Success can’t be measured by money, which is what many think of first. I’ve wanted to share my stories for years with readers and now I have, with a little prodding from my husband to ‘just do it’. To me, I succeeded because I followed a dream to get my books out there. Thank you to all the readers who have helped my books
Just for fun–
What is your favourite drink?
Ah…I do love all the different types of Jack Daniels but the Single Barrel has to be one of the best. I also enjoy both versions of Pendleton whiskey. My readers will catch that in the books as they read because my characters usually drink it, too! 
Are you a cat or dog person?
Now…I’m a cat person, strange as it may sound to those who really know me. Growing up we had German Shorthairs and my children had beagles and poms. I refused to have cats but ten years ago, my husband brought home a kitten from work that had been hanging around and I’ve been a cat person ever since.
Love or lust?
Mmmm….lust is so dangerous! Dayam! I’m in love like a 16 yr old but lust makes me crave those abs and shoulders, biceps and chests….whew! And if a man has that magnetism, just a look from him will wet your thong! Yes, my sex scenes are so fun to write! LOL
If you could spend the day with any famous author, who would it be? And, why?
Jackie Collins!! I’d love to spend the day with that sexy woman and get to know what makes her tick!
If you could indulge free of any consequences, what would be your ultimate sexual fantasy?
Another tough question….I’m lucky that my husband indulges me with all types of sexual fantasies! I’ve not been involved in swapping partners…writing about is extremely erotic but to actually experience that would be a fantasy fulfilled. What do our readers think? Are they brave enough to share??

Come Tame Me, Book 1, Wild Fillies series

Cassandra's sharp shooting skills surpass even the men who compete and those same skills come in handy when she's presented with the challenge of taking back her father's ranch. She's been gone ten years and knows the men will think she's just a high-maintenance female from back east. They'll all have a surprise when she starts giving the orders and takes back what belongs to her!
But she also worries about the relationship she'd had with Gabe ten years ago and knows they will see each other. Can she forgive him and start over to work on re-establishing what they had? Or will she hire a new manager for the ranch?
She so wanted to stay mad at him for what had happened with that woman...the same one she’d seen in the brewery, but she couldn’t forget how tender he could be when they were together. He’d loved her; she knew that...and her gut told her to forget about the incident and move on.
“I’ve missed you.”
The sound of his deep voice melted her resolve all too quickly. Gently biting her lower lip, she met his dark eyes. He set his cup on the side table.
“You told me when you left to never try contacting you...ever! That’s the hardest thing in my life I’ve ever had to do.” Gabe leaned back in his chair and stretched his legs. “I’m sorry for the way things got left between us. I know I screwed up. What’s done is done...but what we had was good, Cass. I’ve held onto hope for ten years. I knew one day you’d have to visit here.”
She had so many questions. “And where’s that woman now?” Anger rose in her belly and she easily envisioned the incident in her mind. She hadn’t meant to blurt out that question but it’s the one that bothered her most even though she’d seen her kiss Buck Johnson.
Gabe tapped the arm of the log chair but kept his gaze on her. “She stayed with your father for about five years. When he fired Buck, she eventually moved in with him. He’s got a place about ten miles away and he’s still pissed at your father. They’ve had an ongoing feud between them ever since.”
Crossing her legs and swinging her foot, Cassi wondered if he’d tell her the truth with her next question. “When was the last time you saw her?” She hated being nosy but she had to know.
Without losing eye contact, Gabe leaned forward and rested his elbows on his knees. “I’ve not been with her since the night you and your mother walked into the bunkhouse. She and your father had the relationship until she got bored with him...and moved on.”
She watched Gabe closely for a sign of lies but saw none. Gabe never flinched nor looked away. “I’m sorry I told you to never contact me. I’ve tried to forget what we had. I made myself believe you’d found a woman to make you happy...since I must not have done that for you.” A tear slipped down her cheek and made her mad that she’d let him see how much he affected her.
“My gawd, Cassi...I’ve thought of no one but you for ten years! Assuming you wanted nothing more to do with me, I didn’t try to find you.”
Through tear-filled eyes, Cassi admired Gabe, wishing things didn’t have to be so difficult. This was really more her fault for not reaching out. He’d changed for the better, filling out his broad shoulders and his upper arms. Could she let him hold her without wondering if he wished she were someone else? Looking away, Cassi wiped her cheek.
This was too hard.
They would have to get past so many hurdles...but they did have time on their side.
Gabe stood and walked toward the steps. “If you decide to fire me as manager, I’ll understand.”
Cassi gasped and jumped up. “Gabe! That’s not what I want...”
He turned back and the hurt in his eyes stabbed her heart. “I don’t know what you want, Cass.”
