Take Me. Tempt Me. Tame Me.

Cailey Holm is definitely not a cat person-in fact, she’s terrified of felines in all forms. Creating a sexy were-lion as the hero of her latest erotic romance was supposed to help her overcome that fear, but suddenly the tall, dangerous, domineering alpha-cat of her darkest dreams is standing in her living room-and then carrying her back to his world, demanding to explore her most erotic fantasies.

Set free from Cailey’s story, Lander Cornelius, King of the Werekin, now has a mind of his own-not to mention a magnificent, muscular body specially designed to make his mistress ache with desire. At first Lander’s only motive is to protect his people by controlling Cailey’s magic. But now, he intends to bring them both to the peak of ultimate ecstasy, showing her the intense pleasure of total submission, and unleashing a pure, animal passion that has no limits except their wildest imaginations.

Hello all! I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share a little bit about my latest release, Wicked Beast, on Novel Thoughts and Book Talk today. First, I’ll tell you a little about myself. My name is Tawny Taylor and I’m your average suburban wife and mom, with one exception—I write naughty (aka erotic) romance novels. Many of my books have a touch of humor as well as mild BDSM. My heroes tend to be larger than life–in all the ways a romance novel reader would appreciate–and my heroines quirky.

Tina from TwoLips Reviews had this to say about Wicked Beast, “I found the blend of humor, sex and domination to be a wild blend in Wicked Beast. Tawny Taylor does domination with a heart and Wicked Beast is an unforgettable, tasty ride everyone should take!

I’d love to share a short excerpt:

He took a single step forward, but she tried to fend him off by lifting her hands and glaring.

“Don’t come any closer or I’ll scream,” she warned.

He had no doubt she would shriek. She’d tested the limits of her vocal chords once or twice–or ten times–already. His eardrums had worn thin, thanks to the high-pitched screeching.

But there was no one to hear her now. At least no one who would do anything about it.

He studied the tension in her body, the stiffness in her limbs as he took a second step toward her. The tang of terror filled his nostrils. The aroma stirred his instincts to chase. Capture. Take. “You don’t know our kind,” he said.

“What ‘kind’? What are you talking about?” She flattened herself against the door.

He stopped directly in front of her, using his size to his advantage. “I’m Lander Cornelius, King of the Werekin.”

Recognition slowly touched her features, one by one. Her eyes widened. Her lips parted. The lower one trembled. “Oh. My. God,” she muttered in a breathy voice.

“You will learn to respect me.” He lifted a hand to her face but before his fingers made contact with her skin, she jerked her head to the side.


“Yes, I will touch you,” he said, “whenever and however I wish. You are mine. My possession.”

“No, no, no!” She shook her head. “It’s impossible. I just started that story. It isn’t published. I haven’t posted it on the internet…how? Did you hack into my computer and steal it?”


The premise of the story was the product of a casual conversation between some friends who happen to be not just book enthusiasts but book fanatics. They were discussing the heroes of recent novels they’d read and the topic of whether they would want to be married to their fave book’s hero was raised. Interestingly enough, they were all in agreement–the qualities that made a novel’s hero so appealing would also make him extremely difficult to live with in the real world.

The seed of an idea was planted in my mind. What if a woman was faced with her secret ideal, a man who couldn’t possibly exist in real life? Would the darkly sensual, powerful, alpha man of her dreams turn into the monster of her nightmares when he stepped out of her fantasies?

Wicked Beast is the story of Cailey’s journey into the erotic world she’d created in her imagination, where man and beast share one glorious body, and her deepest fears force her from the safe world she’s known. I hope you’ll enjoy taking that journey with her! I most certainly did.
