Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Thianna Durston author of Discovery.
Hi Thianna, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
10 things we didn’t know about you.
I feel the need to do it backwards
10 – I’m not much taller than a kitchen counter – okay, that’s a slight exaggeration but I am short, or as I like to think of it: the power of a 7 ft tall woman in a condensed 4’10” package. Rawr!
9 – I’m addicted to two things: exercise and books.
8 – I’m a dog person. In fact, I can break it down even further. I’m a small dog person. If the dog’s as big as I am? I’m going the other way.
7 – I don’t like crunchy things. Especially hearing people crunch on things. If someone eats an apple or a raw carrot around me, I’m likely to go screaming from the room.
6 – I have a thing about sleeping on freshly clean sheets. If it wouldn’t waste so much water, I’d change them daily.
5 – My favorite fantasy is…oh, I’m not gonna tell you that *wink*
4 – I’m a Reiki Master/Trainer.
3 – I always leave the green M&Ms to the end and eat them all at once. I have a special fondness for the blue ones as well.
2 – My muse is male and hot. Don’t you wish you were me?
1 – I’m a bit anal retentive about household cleaners. They have to be natural – as in made by hand. Baking soda, lemon juice, tea tree oil, all of it is wonderful and won’t cause all the physical pains and discomforts the cleaners in the stores cause. I love the scent of lavender distilling in my kitchen 🙂

Living in Montana and working the ranch is all Aaron wants to do for the rest of his life. Diagnosed as allergic to the sun thirteen years previous, every day is a struggle to get out of bed. Having to wear long-sleeved shirts, gloves, and even material to cover his face from the effects of the sun, just makes it all worse. Now, in his thirty-second year, he is sure this will be his last summer. While he hates it, he knows he needs to come to terms with the truth and put things in order for his younger cousins. Before he does so, he heads out for one night of pleasure before facing what’s coming.
Jaret loves excitement and new adventures. For over five hundred years, he has sought them out. In Montana on a whim, he comes across someone he doesn’t expect, someone who makes him feel things he does not understand and does not want to give up. In no time at all, he feels like he cannot live without Aaron. The only problem is Aaron doesn’t know who he is, what he is, nor that he isn’t going to die. Not on Jaret’s watch. With a plan to help the other man discover who he is in place, he only has one thing to worry about: whether an ancient enemy will come and destroy everything he now holds dear.

“You’re not going to die, Aaron.”
“You don’t know that. This sickness, ailment, curse…whatever the fuck it is. It’s gettin’ worse. And it’s changin’. Morphin’ into somethin’ scary. My nightmares lately have been horrible.”
“What kind of nightmares?” Of course, Jaret knew. They were the same kind all of them had during the change. Fire and ice as the body went through horrendous chills and soaring high fevers. They would only stop once the change was complete. For after that, there was no real sleep anymore.
“Bein’ caught on high mountains, pelted with snow. Of the forests here bright with orange fire. Of you—” His voice broke. “Callin’ out my name only I’m no longer here to respond.”
“Babe,” Jaret said in a soft voice, not understanding why but knowing he was closer to this drakyl than he had ever been to anyone. “We’re going to get you cured. Then you can come out with me at night. We’ll keep the place predator free while your cousins slave in the sun. How does that sound?”
A sad attempt at a laugh left the other man’s throat. “Promise me you won’t leave until I’m gone?”
Fury swept along Jaret’s veins. Anger at the sun, the fact the man next to him was terrified, and at Davis for not explaining to the poor man earlier what he was. But mostly, he was furious at himself for not telling Aaron the truth. Leaning in, he placed his nose against Aaron’s. “I promise you,” he said in a deep growl, “that you are not going to die, Aaron Drakyl. I won’t let it happen.”
Thianna loves to write strong stories with even stronger heroes. While all of her books have an erotic overtone, it is the story that is the most important to her. “The story should be able to stand on its own. The erotic elements are an add-on.”
She enjoys writing about couples with kink, paranormal couples, and straight out strangeness. But more on that later… You can find her at mm.thiannad.com.
She also writes m/f under the name Thianna D.
