Beyond The Page: “His Need, Her Desire” by Malia Mallory

His Need Her Desire coverIt’s winter time in several countries so I thought we could discuss the heat of Hawaii and the heat generated between Tabitha Quinn and Marcus Granger in Malia Mallory‘s self-published book “His Need, Her Desire” (Dominating BDSM Billionaires Erotic Romance #1)

MM: First off, I’d like to thank Sasha for hosting me on Caribbean Accent Book Reviews today!

Sasha has asked me to answer a few questions about one of my newer releases – “His Need, Her Desire“. This is a contemporary romance with some light BDSM elements.

CABR: Malia what inspired you to write this book?

MM: Though writers cannot always “write what we know,” sometimes we do. I decided I wanted to set a story where I live. I’m lucky that I live in Hawaii and the setting just lends itself to romance. There is nothing like pristine beaches and gorgeous sunsets to create an atmosphere.


I also wanted to write about a heroine with a little spunk. She’s willing to try out some of Marcus’s activities, but she is in control. She’s not a doormat or maladjusted, she’s just someone willing to explore.

CABR: I like that about Tabitha 🙂 Tell us your favourite scene from the book. Was it easy to write?

MM: I think my favorite scene is the last. It was actually tough to work out. I don’t want to give away the end, but Tabitha has to make a decision as to whether to continue her relationship with Marcus or not.

She has to accept him – or not. She is swirling with emotions and trying to decide what to listen to – her head or her heart.

CABR: Will we see any of the supporting characters in books of their own? Or will Tabitha and Marcus make a cameo in an upcoming book?

Malia Mallory iconMM: This book is the first in a series called Dominating BDSM Billionaires. I’m working on the second book now. It’s entitled “His Desire, Her Surrender“. In the second book, Tabitha and Marcus are still the focus.

However, in book three, I’m planning to feature Marcus’s brother, who is a research scientist at the family company, Granger Pharma. He becomes involved with a colleague.

I also have a plan to have a book centering on Marcus’s sister. She’s involved with a man who is the son of her father’s rival. So, I have many plans in the works. Don’t even get me started on the stuff in the pipeline for The ABCs of Erotica series. 😀

CABR: Oooh! Looking forward to more about Marcus and his brother. 🙂


CABR: Paperbacks or eBooks?

His Need Her Desire coverMM: You know, I like both. I have so many full bookcases in my home that it can be a relief to be able to store in such a tiny space.

I also like the convenience of being able to read anywhere. Is there a long line at the post office? No problem, I just whip out my phone and read. I think each format has something to offer.

CABR: Surprises. Fun or anxiety-inducing?

MM: It depends! Sometimes a surprise is great and appreciated…sometimes not so much 😀

CABR: Pantser or planner when writing?

MM: I am a pantser trying to become more of a planner. I usually have a general idea and a sort of list outline to start. I am trying to flesh that out more so I can be efficient with my writing time.

CABR: If you could be someone else for a day, from any time in history, who would you be and why?

MM: Wow, what a tough question! There are so many possibilities from which to choose. How about Neil Armstrong walking on the moon? I’ve always been an astronomy fan and that would certainly be an incredible experience.

CABR: Very true! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by CABR today Malia.

His Need Her Desire coverSynopsis of “His Need, Her Desire“: 

Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.


Tabitha’s smile grew wide. She held out her hand. “Really, I can’t thank you enough for your help.”

He held her hand in a firm grasp a shade longer than necessary, but Tabitha didn’t mind. She enjoyed looking at him. Though he had probably shaved that morning, an attractive shadow highlighted his chin and strong jawline.

“I’m glad I was in the right place.”

Tabitha released his hand. “So, where’s your sister?”

“My sister? How did you know?”

Tabitha bit her lip. “I’m sorry to say that I eavesdropped a bit. I was sitting near you at dinner last evening.”

“Eavesdropping? That seems extremely naughty.”

Tabitha was caught off guard by the tone of his voice. He was teasing, and yet, there was a thread of authority running through his words. Tabitha tried to suppress a shiver. “Well, sometimes I just can’t help myself.”

Marcus appeared disarmed by her honesty. “Are you traveling with anyone?”

Tabitha gave him a playful look. “Why do you ask?”

Marcus smiled. “Because I’m interested in knowing the answer, of course.”

“Well, if you’re thinking about ditching my body at sea, I’ve got six family members waiting for me in my hotel room upstairs. If you’re thinking about asking me to dinner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.” Tabitha amazed herself. Where is this coming from? This man brought something out in her. She’d bet those broad shoulders and sexy smile had enticed many a woman.

He laughed. “You have nothing to worry about. I never use force, unless of course, it is desired.”

“Oh?” The truth burst into her mind. It suddenly became clear that he was fishing around a bit. There had been several hints here and there, but it seemed like he might be looking for a certain sort of woman. No, he couldn’t be. I’m imagining things.

“It’s true. I would be pleased if you joined me for dinner this evening.”

Tabitha did a mental fist pump in her mind. Woohoo! Dinner with Gorgeous Guy. “What did you have in mind?”

“Would you be averse to allowing me to surprise you?”

Tabitha hesitated then plunged ahead. “Not at all. It’s clear you have excellent taste.”

Marcus raised an eyebrow. “What makes you say that?”

“Well, we both dined at the same restaurant last night, and I thought it was terrific.”

“Ah, well, my meal was less than pleasant unfortunately.” His tone indicated the subject was off-limits.

“Perhaps it was the company and not the food?”

Marcus laughed. “You are undoubtedly right and surprisingly honest.”

“My mother would say that my tongue is quicker than my brain.”

The corners of Marcus’s mouth lifted. “I’ve always been a fan of quick tongues.”
