Genetic Attraction is currently off the market. Expect re-release in 2017.
At a conservative Long Island university, Dr. Emmaline Silvay has two great loves — her life-saving work and her younger research associate. But this love is impossible. After all, she’s his boss and he lives with his girlfriend. But his “girlfriend” turns out to be his boyfriend, a gentle and beautiful supermodel. Resigned to a platonic friendship, she accepts a weekend invitation, but the men have far more passionate ideas. They want her to “be a part of them”. A three-way love defies propriety and the strict rules of her University. The supermodel’s fame makes secrecy impossible. The menage threatens her carefully constructed world. Something must be given up. Someone’s heart will be broken.
What People Say
Genetic Attraction is part of the series which was runner-up for Best Series of 2011 in the LRC Awards
I love the book, between the dialect and the cute phrases I laughed so hard, I was afraid I would wake the hubby. So many clever and quick-witted remarks that just added to the overall story. I did have to put the book down for a minute and get on the computer to find out about the old Kinsey continuum of sexuality, just to see if I could find any input. This story was a wild ride and a lot of “hey what the hell”; I think it was a new and well plan plot, which is why I will be adding Tara Lain to my list of favorite authors. I definitely fell in love with her writing style and imagination. She had such a refreshing plot that will stay with me a long time and I think is well worth the money to add to your library
Genetic Attraction was Nominated for a CAPA Award for Best Contemporary Romance

It is through Jake that Roan has come to love Em even before meeting her.

The deep seated passion and sizzling hot sexy shenanigans are graphic, uninhibited and plentiful still emotional as well. The climatic and deep sighing ending will have readers craving for more!
Watch for wonderful talent to rise to the top!
Fast paced at times, Genetic Attraction was a good book to read. Tara writes details woven into characters’ dialogue and made me feel informed without being overwhelmed. A true sound of pages sizzling can be heard as these three come together. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys ménages a trois, m/m/f, and stories with a modern day feel, written in a contemporary style.
Genetic Attraction is also available in print paperback. See Series Page.
Tree shadows crowded the road. He loved the drive home. Narrow, winding roads with turns he could feel in his gut, and every curve brought him closer to Roan’s beautiful ass. His baby. Now it was up to him.
Finally Em was coming to their house. Should he be thrilled or scared shitless? He’d wanted her to visit much sooner but he’d always chickened out. Of course, chickening was still an option. They could play the charming hosts, wine and dine her, and nothing else. A lot depended on Roan’s reaction and Jake’s own courage. Even more depended on Em. He hit the speed dial on his cell phone.
The sleepy, silky voice he loved answered. “Are you hurrying home to me, love? ‘Cause man have I got a big thing waiting for you.”
Shit, big was no joke. Blood rushed to Jake’s groin, and he was instantly hard. The man was sex on a stick. He still couldn’t believe he’d walked into that hotel bar just when Roan had been hiding out from his hounds. “Hi, darling. Don’t let that big thing go to sleep before I get there. I’m about twenty minutes away.”
He heard a lascivious chuckle. “No chance of sleep. I’m keeping it warm for you.”
Jake moaned on purpose while Roan laughed.
“Before I have to pull over and jerk off, let me tell you what just happened.”
“What? Something sexy, I hope.”
“One-track mind. Yes, potentially sexy. Emmaline is taking you and me to the Belden Award dinner on Friday and…wait for it…she’s coming home to spend the weekend with us.”
“No shit! Does she know who ‘us’ is?”
“Well, she knows you’re a man, if that’s what you mean.”
“Jesus, finally. How did this all happen?”
“I’ll tell you all the details when I get home.”
“No, baby, you’re not going to be doing any talking when you get home, ’cause your mouth will be full. So tell me now.”
Jake laughed. “Yeah, you’re right. Well, short version, she started insisting that I had to come to the awards dinner and bring my girlfriend.”
“Just call me Angelina.”
“So I figured, what the hell? I might as well tell her.”
“About time, love.”
“I know.” It had been a huge deal between him and Roan, but he just hadn’t been able to get up the nerve to introduce his lover to his boss. For him it had been the final statement. Tell her, and he’d have to admit he was gay. It was easy to do with everyone else. His parents had said they’d already known he was bisexual, and women hadn’t really done it for him for a couple of years when he met Roan. It had been easy giving up women. All women but one.
Roan’s purr broke into his reverie. “Awfully quiet, love.”
“Sorry. Just thinking. Is it my wishful imagination that she might want more than a professional partnership with me?”
“Can’t say for sure, love. But when I meet her I should get some insight.”
“You know it’s up to you, right, baby? Just because I think you’ll love her doesn’t mean it’s true. I know not many women do it for you.”
“Well, it’s some up to me and more up to her.”
“I can’t tell you what it means to me that you’re open to this. I was pretty shitty about Alexandra.”
Roan chuckled, and the sound shivered right up Jake’s spine. “I loved that my fucking Alex made you green, baby, but I didn’t love her. I want you to have what you love.”
“But I feel the same way about you. Nothing gets in the way of us no matter what.”
Roan was quiet.
Jake heard the tightness in his lover’s voice. “That means everything to me, Jake.” There was a sigh. “But she still turns you on, right?”
Jake laughed. “Like a raging horndog.”
“Then the chances are damned good I’ll feel the same way. Now, get home here, baby, and let me show you where you can put that horn.”
Oh Jesus, his cock was pressing out of his jeans as his foot slammed the accelerator.
