Guest post and contest: TA Chase – Borderline


Hello everyone. I’m T.A. Chase and I write m/m romance. I want to thank you for having me here today.

Borderline is my newest release from Totally Bound. It’s actually a re-release, but in case you missed it the first time, here’s your chance to grab it. Lol It’s the first book in the Delarosa Secrets trilogy. Snap Decision, book two, will be out in April, and Cold Truth, book three, will be out in June.

It focuses on the Delarosa brothers and the family secret that has shaped their lives from the moment of their births. Well, at least for two of them. The third brother doesn’t even know his secret until he meets up with Tanner and Mac.

What does one do when someone you love and care for is one of the most wanted men in America? Do you tell your new lover, and hope he doesn’t take advantage of his knowledge to further his career? Does it make you complicit in his crimes that you haven’t told anyone about your connection to him?

That’s the question Tanner has to answer in Borderline. He has to decide if Mac is worth trusting with this secret, and he won’t use the knowledge to hurt Tanner or the people he loves.

The secrets in the Delarosa family run deep and, in the end, it looks like there’s only trouble and danger ahead for all of them. But we’ll have to see as the truth comes out, one brother at a time.

Thank you again for having me and I hope you get a chance to check Borderline out at Totally Bound.

Excerpt from Borderline:

T.A. Chase

“I’m pretty sure you’ve heard something about this. It’s on all the local news channels and national media has latched on to it as well.” He curled his upper lip in disgust at how the media vultures had descended on Houston. “Four women have been brutally murdered in the last four months. We’re pretty sure the same man killed all four of them and our profiler agrees.”

Tanner and MacLaughlin nodded.

“The media has nicknamed him ‘The Knife’, which will only encourage him, I’m sure, but it sells papers and gets ratings. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a master in using a blade.”

“Before you tell me anymore, can I see the photos? I’d like to form my own profile first, after which we’ll compare them to see if they match.”

“That works for me.” Macario pointed to the folder Billingsley had set on MacLaughlin’s desk. “Those are copies of all the photos.”

Billingsley stuck his head in the office. “Mac, you have to head out. We got a call about a possible homicide.”

“Is it our guy?” He stood.

Billingsley shrugged. “They didn’t know. Just that it might be.”

“Okay. I’m on my way.”

Tanner stood as well. “I’ll go with you. If it’s another knife murder, seeing a fresh scene will help me get more ideas about your suspect.”

Macario looked at Billingsley and his major nodded.

“Fine with me. Can you drive? I rode over with Billingsley.”


Macario followed Tanner from the Bureau’s offices. His eyes were drawn to Tanner’s ass, catching glimpses of the jean-clad flesh. He blinked, raising his gaze to Tanner’s board shoulders.

Surrounded by secrets, two men search for a serial killer, while trying to keep it from becoming personal.

Mac Guzman is a Texas Ranger and lead detective on a serial killer case rocking the city of Houston. He’s willing to take help from anyone, especially when it comes in the form of the gorgeous FBI profiler, Tanner Wallace. Mixing business with pleasure has never been an option for Mac, but he just might change his mind and seduce Tanner into his bed.

Tanner Wallace joined the Bureau and became a profiler to catch bad guys. Also, it might have a little to do with making up for the evil caused by his family’s business. When he’s called in to consult on a serial killer case in Houston, Tanner never expects to meet Mac. The handsome Texas Ranger brings to mind hot, sweaty nights wrapped in each other’s arms, yet Tanner knows Mac would walk away if he ever found out who Tanner’s family really is.

With the threat of another murder hanging over their heads, Tanner and Mac will have to find a way to work past their differences before the killer strikes again.
