Guest Author & Giveaway: Shayla Black featuring Delicious

Wednesday, March 3

***This giveaway has ended, but you should still read the's worth your time:)
Thanks for joining the fun!***

The day has finally come!  The sequel to DECADENT (one of my favs), titled DELICIOUS, was released yesterday. Squee!!!! I was a huge fan of Luc in DECADENT, and while many people love Jack from WICKED TIES (don't get me wrong I'm also a devotee), I was immediately intrigued by Luc and was very excited when I found out Shayla Black was writing his book.  I've been patiently waiting, as I know many of you have as well, and I can't think of a better title for our hero today because he is yummy yummy delicious! 

Shayla Black is here today with a special interview with the hero of DELICIOUS, read and enjoy!

I’m super excited about the release of DELICIOUS, the third in the Wicked Lovers series. Recently, I sat down with the hero, Luc Traverson, and asked him some questions. Enjoy!

Q: What is the first thing you notice about a woman?

A: I love eyes because they tell me a lot about a woman. But I confess, I’m very fond of a woman’s hips. Curvy, sleek hips flaring from a small waist gets me every time.

Q: If you were another person, would you be friends with you?

A: I’d like to think so, but I know I have my faults. I haven’t always been the best friend and put others’ needs before my own, but I keep trying to get it right.

Q: Would you bungee jump?

A: Oh, hell no! I leave that sort of daredevil stuff to my cousin, Deke and his pals. I’d rather flambé dessert than jump out of a plane.

Q: What is your biggest regret?

A: Not always being honest with the people I love about my intentions. I never meant to cause pain.

Q: What is your favorite fruit or vegetable to cook with?

A: I enjoy working with all fresh ingredients, but I particularly like fresh strawberries. If you read Delicious, you’ll see for yourself. J

Q: What is your biggest fear?

A: Spending the rest of my life unfulfilled. I’ve achieved everything I wanted to professionally, but personally it doesn’t mean that much. If I could find the right situation, the right woman, adopt or find some way to hold my own child… I fear never being truly fulfilled. 

He can’t control his desire.

Luc Traverson’s entire future is planned out—but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa Devereaux . She’s a former exotic dancer turned strip club owner and restaurateur. Recently, Alyssa and Luc shared one night of wild abandon that left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control—and Alyssa desperate for more.

And that’s just the way she wants it.

Fulfilling a promise, Luc is the guest chef for Alyssa’s restaurant debut. The sight of her makes Luc wild, so how can he survive a week without letting loose and ravaging her—especially when she’s begging for it? Luc’s desire for her explodes when he realizes he isn’t the only man desperate to have her. But one of the others is deadly. And that’s not the end of Alyssa’s secrets…which are as dark and mysterious and enticing as her fantasies.

My many many thanks to Shayla for being my guest today.  I can't wait to read DELICIOUS.  I've ordered mine, but it hasn't come yet...sigh :(   Thankfully, I only discovered the Wicked Lovers series last year, so my wait has not been as long as it has been for other fans of Luc.  Now I just have to patiently wait for the next book in the Doomsday Brethren series.  It looks like towards the end of the year it will be a virtual "Bonanza of Black" because Shayla will have a novella in the FOUR PLAY anthology with Maya Banks in October, ENTICE ME AT TWILIGHT & EMBRACE ME AT DAWN (the next books in the Doomsday series) in October and November respectively, and an additional paranormal romance novella in the HAUNTED BY YOUR TOUCH anthology with Jeaniene Frost in September.  No wonder she's been so busy writing!!!

What is your favorite fruit or vegetable to cook with? I would say vegetables. They are more forgiving if you mess up something.

Hi ^^

Q: What is your biggest regret?
Not following through with my paralegal degree when i first started college. Instead i allowed myself to be persuaded by my parents into studying human development for 3 years before i finally switched back. By then i didn't want to lose all the credits i earned for 3 years and thus my degree is now in sociology with a focus on Law and Society. No-one will hire me with this degree. And thus i'll probably won't even get to go into the career field i wished to go.

Thanks from coming today Luc and Shayla!

I can't wait to read your story! Hum, What is my biggest regret? I would have to say not sticking out college and finishing my degree. I have gone back several times to study different things, but haven't been able to commit to one field of study to finish. It has come to burn me here later in life with jobs!

Congrats Shayla on the re lease, heading out Friday (payday, woo hoo), to buy it. Can't wait.

Woo Hoo!!! Congratulations on the release, it looks AMAZING!

What is my favorite veggie to cook with?? Weird, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Brussel sprouts and mushrooms. I can add 'em to anything and they are mighty tasty.

OMG I'm so pumped about Luc's book. Anyway, my biggest fear would be that I would look back on my life and say I didn't live it to my fullest potential. I was too scared or too cautious to go out there, live and follow my passions.


Anonymous,  March 3, 2010 at 9:59 PM  

This was fun!! I LOOOVE Luc (even though I confess, I'm one of the Jack fans LOL) - he is SO intense. RAWR
Don't enter me in the contest, just wanted to say "hey" and read that kewl interview!!

Mary G March 3, 2010 at 11:00 PM  

Hi Shayla
Just wanted to say congrats on your new releaae & give a shout out for all your books which I have so don't enter me.

CallMeKayla March 4, 2010 at 12:48 AM  

+1 What's my biggest regret?
I'm going to make it a tad more broader than that.. my biggest regret(s) have come from my not talking. I am a quiet person (starting to shake that off now) and, in the past, did not say what I really felt to many people. I have lost so much potiental..


Beth March 4, 2010 at 2:54 AM  

It's too late a night to think to hard so I'll just tell you that my favortie fruit to cook with is pineapple and my favorite veggie to use is green pepper.
And my biggest regret is never going to college.

Ana March 6, 2010 at 1:12 PM

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
