About the author:
Hi! My name is Tina. I am a bright and positive person, who loves sunny weather and sunflowers. As an author, I write mostly gay romance, and sometimes also interracial erotica. In 2018, I published my two short stories entitled "You Are My Sea" and "Married in Tierra del Fuego". The message that I want to pass to my readers is, we can allow ourselves to dream of love and turn to it the way sunflowers turn to the sun. Because love will appear in our lives, like the sun. I always write happy endings. I want to talk about true love, loyalty, commitment and sexual passion.
What inspired you to write your book?
Even though “You Are My Sea” was published as my first short story in the m/m erotic romance genre, “Married in Tierra Del Fuego” was my first short story ever. I wanted to describe the loneliness of two mature men, who would turn to each other in search of comfort and love. “Married in Tierra Del Fuego” was inspired by my interest in Argentina. I’ve always been dreaming about sitting in front of a vineyard with a glass of exquisite wine in my hand, looking at the blue sky. This is the atmosphere I created in “Married in Tierra Del Fuego”. Although the main characters are two Asian expats, the story has strong flamenco mood.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Jian decided to prepare his signature drink. He took oranges from the plastic bag Tao had brought and started carefully slicing them. As he sliced, Tao came up behind him and without warning hugged him.
“Has anyone ever told you that you have beautiful lips?” he whispered.
“Never.” Jian turned to face him. Tao closed the gap between them, so close that Jian was now stuck between him and the counter. Jian quickly reached behind and moved the tray with oranges to the side.
“Do you like apples?”
“Your lips are in the shade of apples…”
Jian’s face heated, not knowing how to respond to compliments.
“Your first kiss, your first time, I want it all,” Tao said, “and I want it tonight.” Without any further hesitation, he grabbed Jian by the waist and hugged him with his whole body.
Jian didn’t know what to do. It all felt so awkward, and at the same exciting. “Tao, I, I can’t kiss.”
“But I want to kiss you so much,” Tao whispered, his lips close to Jian’s cheek. “Let me.” And without waiting for consent, he gave Jian a quick peck, then moved away to look into his eyes. “See? Now you’ve been kissed for the first time. You can’t use the ‘I’ve never been kissed’ phrase as an excuse anymore.”
Tao leaned in and kissed Jian again. Jian tried to kiss back as well as he could, but he felt so awkward.
“How does it feel to you?” He asked Tao between panting breaths.
“Exciting,” Tao reassured him, “even though… You really can’t kiss.”
“Oh God, I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be. Just relax. Enjoy the moment.” Tao resumed his kissing.
“Do I have a taste?”
“Really. But it’s so cute that you’re asking about it… Can we just not talk tonight? We’ve been talking so much all these months, and now I just want to touch you.”
