*Tour Wide Giveaway & Author Interview* Dangerous Submission by Lori Toland *Goddess Fish Tours*

Dangerous Submission
by Lori Toland


British Agent Drake Steele never thought when he was hired on at the Serious Organised Crime Agency that his job would involve spanking a co-worker. But when the colleague is Lord Robbie Covington, the sexy red-headed computer hacker for SOCA and MI-6, Drake can't agree fast enough to pop Robbie's cherry and pull him into the sensual world of BDSM.

Now they are caught up in a web of lies as they pose as members of the jet-setting crowd. Drake and Robbie have to race against the clock to stop a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of all Europe. As their covers begin to fade and danger is closing in, protecting Robbie is Drake’s most important task, but neither man is ready for the moment when their hearts are put on the line.


Why don't you tell us a little about yourself.... Something that we cannot Google about you, lol!

Oh geez. Is there anything you guys don’t know about me by this time? LOL!

CEO by day, erotic romance writer by night, Lori Toland lives in Orlando where the summers are hot but the romance between her characters is even hotter. Writing since the tender age of 13, Lori somehow finds time to play video games and watch movies while taking care of her beloved cats and a husband who will forever be her hero.

A fact you may not know about me: I’m not just a cat person, I’m an animal person. I had a dachshund when I was growing up and we miss him so much. He had huge Dumbo-style ears and when he ran, we swore one day he would take off. It never happens, which goes to show you Dumbo is definitely aerodynamically incorrect. (Yeah, I’m a buzzkill…sorry!)

Tell us a little about your book?

Oh yay! Well, in my crit partner’s words, it’s a big sexy Scottish Dom named Drake and very sexy redhead computer hacker named Robbie and he always gets his way. What is not to love? Dangerous Submission is an erotic romance that follows Drake and Robbie as they track down information about a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of Europe. Their leads take them to a BDSM party where they pose as a D/s couple. Sexy times happen — a lot.

How much emotion does it take from you to write?

I’m a very passionate person but as a CEO, I often have to bury that and not lose my temper. I let out a lot of pent up fear and anger in my books. Some of the scenes from The Long Con, 1st book in the series, were from when I was waiting for my husband’s US citizenship status to come through. There was a lot of fear, albeit all irrational, that I would lose him. Dangerous Submission has a few of dark moment scenes too (but I won’t spoil you for it)

What is your favorite part of the book?

There’s a scene that has been posted a few different places where Drake and Robbie are trying out Drake’s new whip to see how Robbie will react. I really enjoyed that part. But my favorite is the second to last chapter. I loved writing it!

You can only pick 3 words for your main characters..what would they be? *to describe your main characters*

Drake: Caring, Strong, Funny
Robbie: Stubborn, Intelligent, Loving

Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why??

The easiest was Drake. He was very likable and I enjoyed his frustration with Robbie. Drake can’t quite figure his mission partner out. Not to mention he is big and muscular and very dominant. Yum!

How many books are you shooting for in this series?

Right now, five minimum but of varying lengths. The series doesn’t center around SOCA only, there are some SIS boys and lots of spies and prosecutors and doctors…ohhh. I think I let the cat out of the bag.

What are you currently working on?

I’m working on world building two different series for the future and also a couple short stories as well. I enjoy short stories, reading them and writing them. They’re a lot of fun.

Do you have anything due to release soon?

At this time, everything has been released, including the short story in the Dangerous Affairs series, English Chaps. Check in at Loose Id, it may still be up for free! :D

What's one thing that you enjoy about writing?

One thing? LOL. I love so many things. I enjoy the happily ever after the most. I really enjoy getting to the end and knowing the characters are happy with each other.

Since we're cover hussies....what was your first impression of your cover?

I was floored! I thought it was awesome. I was trying to think of way I could jump in my phone, which is where I saw it for the first time.

What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?
eBooks all the way. I love carrying around my whole library on my phone. I never lack for entertainment.

Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?

I would love to try steampunk or new adult. First loves are definitely my fave and I have a young, hip voice so I think I could do it.

Okay.... personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there... Hahah...

If you thought you were safe... Nah... Forgot it... Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!

What is on your night stand/dresser? My iPhone charger/speaker, skin cream and my headphones.

What are you listening to you right now? My hubby playing Tomb Raider

What are you reading right now? Alex in Wonderland by Jessica Freely

What is your favorite season? Holiday? I love winter and I love New Years!

And what has been your best b-day present ever?? My (back then)husband-to-be receiving his approval for a fiance visa.

Hard and Quick Time! Don't think... Just answer! Okay, before we go this route, I will get us a refill on our drinks... I will be right back...

You know you do... Quickie time... Think fast....

Are you a quickie kind girl? Yes :)

Dark or Milk Chocolate? Milk
Whipped or Melted? Whipped
Straight up or with a twist - sex? Twist
What's ur fave drink - in a glass or on him? In a glass. Boys are messy enough J

He rushed to take the position, but I grabbed his arm to stop him. “Unless I’ve ordered your silence, you will respond to my commands and questions with ‘Sir’ or ‘Master Drake’ at the end, so I know you understand me.”

“Yes, Sir.”

The respectful reply came naturally, and it pleased me greatly. “Display.”

He dropped to his knees on the linoleum, adjusting a little into the position I’d described. Once he was settled, I moved his shoulder to straighten his back. “Close your eyes,” I reminded him.

“Yes, Sir.” He swallowed and obeyed.

“This is the position you will wait in if I am readying equipment for a scene, or if I simply ask you to. Submissives will stay like this to find their subspace, which is a state of mind submissives experience, and they await a command from their masters.”

“Yes, Sir.”

“Next position is ‘inspection.’ I use this to inspect you before punishing you or before a scene to check for new marks. You would be naked for this, as I need to check every inch of you. You’ll stand with your hands resting on the back of your neck and your feet shoulder width apart. Make sure to remember to keep your gaze lowered and stay quiet. Even if another dom speaks to you, keep your silence.”

As he stood, he opened his eyes. “Shall I remove my clothes, Sir?” he asked.
