Shelli Stevens Is Here Talking About Anybody but Justin, and a Giveaway of Tempting Adam!
Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Shelli’s in the house!


Shelli Stevens is a fabulous author and one of the warmest women I’ve met since wandering cluelessly into the romance arena. I was very excited to hear that she signed with Laura Bradford, who also represents me, and that she sold her first book in the New York market! Take Me comes out from Kensington in July of this year (OMG Shelli–it’s coming up!) and you can read more about Take Me here.

Today she’s here to tell us about her upcoming release Anybody but Justin. PLUS, she’ll be giving a free copy (print or download) of Tempting Adam to one very lucky commenter. (Same rules for international residents.)
Read more about Tempting Adam.


Anybody but Justin (releases May 12)

Gabby is serious about her search for Mr. Right, but no one can say she hasn’t had a good time looking. She enjoys her numerous dates and the sex that comes with them. Until she finds herself falling for the one man she vows to never love. Her best friend and roommate, Justin. A player in every sense of the wordโ€”and a reminder of her awful past.

One night, with the help of a bottle of tequila, things get a little too hot for comfort. She moves out, intent on removing him from the line of temptation.

Justin has different plans. The tequila did more than just change how he sees his good friend. It made him realize he doesn’t want to be just friends any more. He’s ready for something more intimate, and he’ll do whatever it takes to find out why she’s running. And convince her to stay.

Read a sexy Tempting Adam excerpt:

Shelli’s Interview

BK: Thank you for joining us, Shelli!

This is an exciting time for you. So many delicious books on the horizon and on your bookshelf. What is sure to distract you from sitting down and working/writing?

SS: My kid. It’s hard to really dive right into to a deep writing mode with a preschooler running around.

BK: Too true. What are you working on presently? What about upcoming releases?

SS: I’m currently working on a proposal for my option book at Kensington. An erotic shifter, with hints of suspense/action.

BK: Ooh, sounds intense. What’s the best compliment you ever got on your writing or a book?

SS: Gosh…I love it when someone tells me they start my book with the intent just to read a few pages, and can’t put it down. Like burn dinner or stop working to keep reading. Makes me all kinds of happy!

BK: The best of kind of compliment, to be sure.
If you could time travel to any time or placeโ€”the past or futureโ€”where and when would you go to, and why?

SS: I think I would love to travel to the medieval times. I’m fascinated by that period. Of knights. Of the lifestyle. But I’d want to come back after a few days. I’m a creature of comfort and am addicted to the internet.

BK: I hear you, Shelli. I’d want to see it, but then be able to easily access my magical portal for internet forays and a bath.
This was a real pleasure, Shelli.

Be sure to check out Shelli’s website for lots of hot reading and gorgeous covers. Leave her a comment to win a copy of Tempting Adam Monday evening!

    Shelia, I enjoyed reading the excerpts for Take Me and Tempting Adam. I like the cover for Anybody but Justin and it sounds like it will be a good read. The book that you a currently working on for Kensington, sounds like a book that will hold the readers attention. I love a book with some suspense/action involved.

    Shelli, I would love to visit the middle ages, BUT, I would like a portable bathroom to go with me. LOL

    I just finished reading your ‘Theirs to Capture’, and I absolutely loved it. It was absolutely impossible to put it down once I started it.

    I am looking forward to reading your ‘Anybody but Justin’.

    Hello to those who’ve dropped by since I last did ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fedora, Anybody but Justin is actually the first out of three novellas. It follows three good friends and the men they fall for. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I really adore this cover, too! I have a great cover artist and the other two novellas (Luck be Delanie and Protecting Phoebe) have great covers as well! All three of these novellas will be rolled into one print book which should release early fall 2010 I believe.
