Featured Guest Author: Maggie Kavanagh Interviews Sam from Blind Spot: The Stonebridge Mysteries #3


  We are so happy to welcome Maggie Kavavangh to Sinfully on the tour of her latest release Blind Spot: The Stonebridge Mysteries #3.


Thank you so much to Sinfully MM Book Reviews for hosting me today. Blind Spot was released on Jan 4th and is the third and final book in the Stonebridge Mysteries. If you’re not familiar with the series, it follows the developing romance between Sam, an aspiring journalist, and Nathan, an FBI agent on a sex-trafficking task force. The books should be read in order for maximum impact.

Without further ado, here’s my character interview with Sam!

So what’s going on with you lately?

S: Oh, uh, not much. Just the usual, working, hanging out, trying to find out who killed the mayor of Stonebridge.

Wait, what? I heard the mayor died of a heart attack.

S: Yeah, that’s what the killer wanted you to believe. The mayor was three burgers away from a heart attack, sure, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last few years, it’s that the simplest explanation isn’t always the right one. As much as I didn’t like the guy, we need to know what really happened. So I’ve got this list, see, and I’m hoping—well, you’ll have to wait and see. This is my story and I don’t want anyone stealing it.

You haven’t mentioned Nathan yet. Is everything okay with you guys?

S: *grumbles something under his breath*

I didn’t quite catch that.

S: Nothing, nothing. I mean, Nathan’s got this case. I can’t really talk about it because it’s top secret. I don’t even know all the details. It’s his job, and he loves his job, so it’s not really my place to object. I would be pissed if he tried to stop me from doing something I had to do, so I guess I just have to live with it.

Sounds like you’re under a lot of stress.

S: Me, stress? *crazy laugh* Nah. Okay, maybe just a little.

But other than the case, things are okay with you and Nathan?

S: Things are good. Really good. *blushes and stares down at his hands* He even took me to meet his parents. And, TMI, but the other day he woke me up with the most amazing blowjob—let’s just say I’m a lucky guy.

I have a couple of fan questions for you. Ready?

S: Shoot.

What’s your favorite thing about Nathan, and what annoys you about him?
S: My favorite thing is the way he stands up to me and calls me out when I’m doing something crazy, and that’s also the thing that annoys me the most. Oh, and the fact that he’s so. Damn. Clean. I mean you can see your reflection in our toilet bowl. That’s just not normal.

Where would you like to travel outside the U.S.?

S: I’d love to take a trip around the world, get some experience to write about more global issues.

If you could make one wish come true, what would it be?
S: For my brother to wake up from his coma.

All right. Here we go, rapid fire time:

Sweet or salty? Salty.

Live forever or be omniscient? Be omniscient.

Beatles or Stones? Beatles

Summer or winter? Summer

Coffee or tea? Are you crazy? Coffee.

Hard or soft? Hard. *evil grin*

Morning or night? Night.

Truth or fiction? Truth.

There you have it! Thanks for stopping by today. Do you have any more questions for Sam? Ask him below in the comments, and just maybe he’ll oblige… One random commenter will win an ebook copy of any of the Stonebridge Mysteries books.

Genre ~ BDSM, Bisexual, Contemporary, Crime Fiction, M/M Romance



Living together is bliss for Sam Flynn and Nathan Walker, but things never stay quiet in Stonebridge for long. On the night of Sam’s twenty-ninth birthday, the much-hated mayor of Stonebridge is found dead at his home. Sam suspects foul play, but just as he starts investigating the list of possible culprits, Nathan gets word of a new undercover assignment—one that includes a mysterious, sexy new partner. Though Sam struggles to trust Nathan and control his jealousy during Nathan's absence, the stress makes a return to the bottle seem not only tempting, but inevitable—especially when Nathan starts avoiding his calls.

Yet Nathan's fidelity isn't the only thing on Sam's mind. A visit from the mayor's ex-assistant puts Sam in the line of fire, and he’s drawn into a complex web of duplicity spanning back to the night of his parents’ accident. Sam’s journey to uncover the truth about what really happened threatens to unravel long-held beliefs about his parents and puts his relationship with Nathan to the ultimate test.

  1. Isn't twenty-nine a little old to still be aspiring in a profession?

    1. Sam: Burn! Well, Susan, sometimes it takes a little push to get off the ground, if you will. Nathan would say I've been holding back for fear of failure, but he's full of it.

  2. I've always loved the Proust questionnaire popularized by Bernard Pivot and James Lipton's interviews, so I'll borrow this question from them:

    If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

    1. Sam: I'm with you, Elle. Good question.

      I guess I'd like to hear God say, No, this isn't a joke.
