“You’ll kneel for me without me having to tell you to. And when you do, you’ll feel so much better. Trust


- Detective Sam Roberts

Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force.

He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that

won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted

position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will

make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand. Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing

but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself.

And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.

Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day

as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer

Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn

young man resists him. But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan

embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the

whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as

promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

Ryan stopped picking at the wax and met Sam's eyes in the mirror. He didn't say anything.

He just stood there, looking at Sam's reflection.

“Do you need-.” Sam stopped. Ryan was on the brink of ... something. Sam knew what he

said would either finally get him to open up or cause that hard shell to close even tighter around

him. Remembering Ryan’s seeming aversion to needing someone, he asked instead, “Would you like

some help?”

Ryan moved his head, the movement so slight it could barely be called a nod. If they hadn't

been staring at each other in the mirror, he would have missed it. Sam touched his fingertips to

Ryan's shoulder, waiting to see if he would be rejected. Ryan didn’t react, so Sam moved in closer.

When he laid the warmth of his palm across his back, Ryan closed his eyes and shuddered. He

gripped the countertop with both hands, his head hanging low.

“I don't know how to let go,” he said in a voice hoarse with restrained despair.

Sam stepped forward again, moving close enough behind Ryan that he could wrap an arm

around him. Ryan stood there for a second before he turned and leaned into his embrace. Sam

looked at their reflection in the mirror. Ryan's blond head was nestled against him, streaks of wax

down his back. For the first time he looked truly vulnerable, just as Sam had wanted to see him all

along. He stroked Ryan's hair, pressing a kiss to the soft strands.

“I'll show you, Ryan. All you have to do is trust me. I'll take care of the rest.”

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Christa Tomlinson, author of The Detective’s Pleasure. Hi Christa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

Character interview: Officer Ryan Bennett

1)      What do you find attractive in a man?
I like a man who is strong and dominant. Bonus points if he’s a cop like me.

2)     The first thing that went through your head when you saw Detective Sam Roberts?
That I didn’t feel like being bothered. I had no idea why he was talking to me, so I blew him off.

3)     Do you think you’ll insist the author visits you again?
Maybe. I’m kind of private, so I might not want to share what’s going on in my life.

4)     Before you met Sam, what was your ideal man?
Ummm… I had my ideal man already picked out – Sergeant Logan Pierce. That led to a few problems of course.

5)     You’re going out for dinner. What’s your favorite food?

I live in Texas, so I should say barbeque or Tex-Mex. But I really love Italian food. Chicken Alfredo is my favorite.
