Hi, I’m Mia Downing and I’d like to thank Liv for having me today!
My latest release is book three of the Spy Games series, Endgame. My #1 stalker fan posed the question: How did the title and idea evolve? The title comes from chess, when the few pieces left are just moves away from the finish of the game.
In Endgame, Charlotte Smith is a secret agent with a quest to finish the game in play. Five years ago she lost everything—her family, her identity, her life as Abigail Rothschild. Broken, battered and at the end of her will to live, Charlotte felt as if her game of life had been frozen on the board, leaving her with no way to win and no way to quit. She made a vow to fight the men who took everything from her. With the help of Chase Sanders and Jake Anderson, she became what she is today—cold, hard and mean, with excellent marksmanship and a third degree black belt. She has no time for anything but training to take down the motherfuckers.
But then she dances with actor Aaron James at his brother’s wedding, and suddenly the there’s a new piece at play in her endgame, one she’s terrified to use…
Spy Games: Endgame’s Blurb:
Book 3 of the Spy Games series!
Sexy spy Charlotte Smith doesn’t go by the code name Dragon Queen because she’s sweet and cuddly. She’s cold, hard, and mean and has been training for the past five years to take down the men who destroyed her soul and left her burning for revenge. But when she meets her next assignment at a wedding, her body protests there’s much more to life than kicking asses and taking names. Actor Aaron James is witty, hot as hell, and he smells divine. But women with suicidal endgames don’t indulge in casual sex, and they definitely don’t fall in love.
Since meeting Charlotte at his brother’s wedding, Aaron’s life has been nothing but trouble. He’s plagued by memories of the kiss he stole from her, and he senses underneath her aloof nature and frosty glare is a woman with passion and fire. When Charlotte is assigned as his bodyguard after a botched kidnapping attempt, he’s psyched. What better way to get in her panties than have her pretend she’s his girlfriend? Until Aaron realizes too late he wants more than into her panties…he wants Charlotte’s heart.
Contains: Explicit language, really hot sex, anal sex, toys, light bondage, very light BDSM, a really hot actor and his kick-ass spy bodyguard. M/F
Excerpt from Spy Games: Endgame…
“All tied up like a gift, you are. Delightful… I’m going to take the hood off now and have a peek at my present. I love Christmas, but I don’t like to wait.”
Her cheeks dented with a dimple as she smiled at him with mischief. She wrinkled her pert nose. God, could a woman’s skin get any creamier than that? Pale and flawless except for the scar under her left ear he noticed when she turned slightly, cocking her head as if to listen for something.
She did the unthinkable and straddled his lap, her face inches from his, looking into his eyes, the heat from her crotch searing his shaft. He should be afraid. Terrified. But something told him this wouldn’t be like his first time. If she just rode him into oblivion, this time he’d enjoy every moment of it.
“So handsome.” She touched his cheek with a gloved hand, her fingers warm through the leather. Her sleeve rode up and a tattoo around her wrist was exposed, a delicate chain of daisies with a yellow butterfly. He knew that, from somewhere, too, but didn’t remember seeing it on her when they danced. She wiggled on his lap, the ridge of his cock angling against the heat of her crotch through those thin black pants of hers.
He groaned through his gag. If she just rode him, even while he was bound and gagged, he’d be more than grateful for the gift. It was a new experience, to be so damned aroused over a woman, under such extremes. Maybe that’s what the problem was—this was way too extreme. He’d fought feelings like this for years. Now they were punching him in the gut as hard as she ground against his cock.
“Happy to see me again, are you? These ropes excite me, too. It’d be more exciting if it were the other way around. I love a good bondage session.”
He groaned again. He didn’t like kinky shit, but he did like Charlotte. Way, way too much.

If you haven’t tried the Spy Games series yet, they’re most enjoyable when read in order, though you don’t have to do so. The series starts with Spy Games: Trained for Seduction Book 1, a RomCon Reader’s Crown Finalist for 2013.
Spy Games: Trained for Seduction Blurb:
Emma Walters didn’t choose to be a spy, but when her crazy father was caught selling bombs to the wrong people, she was given a choice–become a spy or rot in jail. Her exciting new life as agent Kate Wells becomes more so when she discovers her new boss is the agent–undercover and investigating her father at the time–who took her to third base. Emma is already half in love with the dark and dangerous Chase Sanders. Kate wants nothing more than for him to finish what he started, but he’s the devil incarnate. And one doesn’t make deals or fall in love with the devil.
If someone had told Chase he’d fall in love with a certain virgin when he was on his last mission, he would have shot them dead, sniper style. She was nothing more than collateral damage, damn it. But watching the sexy new spy morph into a bombshell killing machine is too much to bear. So when the powers that be command him to train her in the art of seduction for her first–and possibly last–mission, he’s scared witless. Making love to Kate means preparing her for sex with another man.
Somehow, Chase has to find a way to get Kate in–and out–of her mission without dying. And without falling in love.
This title contains: explicit language, anal sex, ménage a trios (m/f/m), and light bondage.

Mia Downing started creating heroes at age four, but her heroes back then rode ponies to rescue the princess, and only kissed her on the cheek. Today, Mia’s heroes still rescue those in need, but the price of their toys and the expertise of their seduction leads to a lot more than a peck on the cheek. When Mia isn’t busy creating new stories for her readers she fills in as an underwear model for a prestigious lingerie company. She also lives in New England with her family, and enjoys horses and knitting.
Fun facts: Mia can juggle (poorly,) create balloon animals and face paint. She was the hit entertainment of two family parties. No clown suits were involved.
