WANTED FOR KIDNAPPING: A bubbly blonde with a penchant for trouble. May be armed (with good intentions) and dangerously seductive…
Kerry Sullivan is running out of time-and patience. With her brother wrongfully accused of embezzling millions, she can’t face one more humiliating hang-up from the man she’s begging for help. Rafael Dawson may be one of the top electronic security experts in the country — and the only man who can prove her brother’s innocence — but his phone manners are appalling. Damn Yankee. Too bad kidnapping the man isn’t an option. Or is it?
There’s nothing Kerry wouldn’t do for her brother. There are lots of things she longs to do to Rafe Dawson when he’s lying tied-up and naked in her secret hideaway. Rafe is certainly something to look at, but Kerry’s brother’s life is riding on her pulling off the impossible: getting this man who’s always in control to lose it. But when the tables get turned, Kerry finds herself at Rafe’s mercy. And the only way to get her way is to let him have his way — with her…

Thank you for joining us, Shayla!
BK: What is sure to distract you from sitting down and working/writing?
The sound of anyone in my house playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band 2, a really good book (of course), need for caffeine, the phone ringing (which I swear some days is constant), IMing with my friends.
BK: What are you working on presently? What about upcoming releases?
SB: I just finished edits yesterday for SEDUCE ME IN SHADOW and am now starting on those for POSSESS ME AT MIDNIGHT. Then I’ll begin work on the long-awaited book for Luc Traverson, DELICIOUS. My pub schedule for the next 12 months looks like this:
July 7: STRIP SEARCH ““ Berkley Heat
August: “Fated” ““ A free Doomsday Brethren novella, Simon & Schuster website
September 29 ““ SEDUCE ME IN SHADOW ““ Pocket Books
October 27 ““ POSSESS ME AT MIDNIGHT ““ Pocket Books
March 2, 2010 ““ DELICIOUS ““ Berkley Heat
BK: Wow. That’s quite a schedule, Shayla. Your fans will be ecstastic. 🙂
What’s the best compliment you ever got on your writing or a book?
SB: I’m always glad when readers and reviewers say they enjoy my book, but I love to hear that I made readers FEEL. To me, the trick of erotic romance isn’t just to arouse someone with your words, but to also arouse their feelings. When someone tells me I made them smile, laugh, cry and pant all in the same book, I’m happy.
BK: Since Daring Time is a time travel, I’m asking all the guest authors–if you could time travel to any time or place—the past or future—where and when would you go to, and why?
SB: I could never narrow it down. The intellectual curiosity in me makes me want to travel through history and see what it was really like in Regency London or to meet a real Viking, hang out in the Old West, etc. The other part of me is dying to know what will become of my friends and family in the years to come, whether there’s any truth at all to the whole 2012 thing, see what music is like. I’m horribly curious about everything, and visiting both the future and past holds great appeal.
BK: The voracious curiosity of a writer’s mind, I suspect. 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting today, Shayla, and taking the time to tempt us with your thoughts and writing.
