Please welcome Sarah Madison with
Truth and Consequences
When FBI agent Jerry Lee Parker wakes from a coma after a murderous attack on his life, he has no memory of his immediate past. In the blink of an eye, he has gone from having a nearly photographic memory to recalling nothing of the last six months of his life, including his partner and lover, John Flynn. While Lee tries to reboot his past and reconnect with John, there are events at play around him he doesn’t understand. John is keeping secrets from him, secrets which could get them both killed.
Matters come to a head when Lee is hounded to turn over a mysterious artifact, of which he has no knowledge. The two men wind up in a fight for their lives as they risk everything to keep the powerful relic out of the hands of a ruthless killer. In order to protect those he loves, however, John may be forced to make a deal with the devil.
I knew the moment John walked into the bar. It was like my sonar pinged, my radar lit up—you name it. I heard the door open, and without turning around, I knew it was him because the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Because something in my gut tightened, and my cock lifted in earnest. I watched him in the mirror as he scanned the room, locked in on my presence, and stalked toward me like a panther in a pen full of sheep. Everyone else in the room was aware of him as well. I practically preened when he came up beside me. He took a seat and signaled the bartender, who came over with flattering attention.

We had an opportunity to ask Sarah a few questions...
Hi Sarah, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
I grew up in a home where my mother believed food was a necessary evil. She was a pretty dreadful cook, so we all learned to eat somewhere else before coming home for dinner. I seem to have inherited her lack of cooking ability. Baking I can do. I love making snickerdoodles, and brownies, and pumpkin pie. But nine times out of ten, when I try to cook dinner, it turns out so badly not even the dog would eat it. I really need a smoke detector that will turn off when I yell, “I’m just making dinner!” at it.
Truth and Consequences is book 3 in the Sixth Sense series. It features FBI Agents Jerry Lee Parker and John Flynn, and the events that occur when Flynn accidentally touches a mysterious artifact and gains unusual powers. As the Sixth Sense series unfolds, we learn there is a set of such boxes, and that Lee and John aren’t the only ones looking for them. They’re in over their head, and the water is just getting deeper…
- Is there a character in your books that you can’t stand? (Antagonist for example) And what makes them someone you don’t like?
I really dislike the bad guy in this series, which we meet for the first time in Truth and Consequences. He’s kind of John’s mirror opposite, not only in looks but in ethics and morals, too. He has also developed the same abilities John has, but he is using them for his own purposes, and will kill anyone who gets in his way or threatens his goals.
He’s also incredibly powerful. Taking him down is going to be tough, but I have some thoughts on that matter. ☺
- Are there misconceptions people have about your genre?
I think because MM romance has a large female readership, and is largely written by women, there is a tendency for some people not to take it seriously. Because it is perceived by many to be simply porn, and worse, porn for women, it can’t have a lasting message of impact on a reader.
- Is there message in your novel that you hope readers grasp?
This book deals a lot with trust. Can we ever fully trust the people we know and love? Particularly when previous experience has taught us that to do so is a bad idea?
There’s a lot here about learning to trust people who’ve previously let you down, as well as trusting someone who’s never let you down when everyone else has. And trusting someone when everything seems to indicate you shouldn’t.
- How has your writing evolved since your first book? (If this is your first book, how do you hope it evolves?)
My goal is for each book I write to be better than the last. Not necessarily more successful; those are two different things. But I’d like to think that I’m polishing my craft as I go, and that someone who reads and enjoys an early Sarah Madison story will be pleasantly surprised as time goes by.
- One food you don’t care if you never eat it again.
Marmite. OMG. My boyfriend is British, and I tried it once for him. Now we have strict rules that the Marmite knife must not touch any other food item in the house unless he’s eating it. I frequently share Marmite commercials from Youtube with him because it’s a love it or hate it kind of thing, something that the makers of Marmite understand all too well.
