The Bold and The Dominant RELEASE DAY!

Hey, y’all! Today has finally arrived, and I’m beyond thrilled to be releasing The Bold and The Dominant (Doms of Her Life, Book 3) with Jenna Jacob and Isabella LaPearl. We laughed, we cried, and we worked hard to bring you more of Raine, Hammer, and Liam’s epic journey. I hope you enjoy the excerpt – and the book. Happy reading!

One Dom to Love EXCERPT

Lots of readers are familiar with my Wicked Lovers series, but I’m excited to set aside a little time to talk about some other things I write. One I’m always giddy about is the Doms of Her Life series with Jenna Jacob and Isabella LaPearl. For me, this series is an opportunity to explore the deeply psychological bond between a man and a woman, between a Dom and his sub, between friends and enemies, to find out ultimately what happiness looks like for people who enter a relationship broken and come out whole. As this series has continued, I’ve come to love each and every moment I spend with Raine and the two men she’s torn between, Liam and Hammer. I also get a huge laugh out of supporting characters Beck and Seth. Full of ups and down, heartbreak and joy, and all kinds of unexpected drama, this series is one I love jumping into. We’re about to start writing book 3, The Bold and The Dominant, and I can’t wait to see what a tangled web these characters will weave…

Doms of Her Life, Book 1

Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up falling for her himself.

A Year in Review: 2013

I’m a little late ge05_TheirVirginHostagetting home after the holidays, but I love ringing in the New Year!! A sign of new beginnings, new goals, new BOOKS, and more fun!! But before I do that, I like to look back over the past year’s highlights!

The Masters of Ménage series saw two releases in 2013. In January, Their Virgin Princess released and in June, Their Virgin Hostage became available.

I added two titles to the Wicked Lovers series. In May, Xander, Javier and London got their happily-ever-after in Ours To Love (Wicked Lovers 7). Decker picked up Rachel and never let go in Wicked All Night, A Wicked Lovers Novella, which released in the Wicked and Dangerous anthology (with Rhyannon Byrd) in October.

Introducing…Ask Shayla!

Happy Friday the 13th! I’m often asked questions about being an author and my particular writing process. I’ve been sitting on some of these questions for a while, trying to think of the best way to answer them. You know, something pithy and fun. I finally opted for simple honesty. I hope you enjoy!

Chats with Hammer, Raine, and Liam from Doms of Her Life


Doms of Her Life, book 1

Recently, Jenna, Isabella, and I chatted with the main characters from the Doms of Her Life series – Macen Hammerman, Raine Kendall, and Liam O’Neill. Divided allegiances, torn friendships, unrequited love, drama and angst surround these three almost from the first page. Take a peek at what they had to say just before the start of The Young and The Submissive.

Shayla, Jenna, and Isabella sit down with Hammer in the bar at Shadows. It’s early afternoon, and he’s pouring a shot of Patrón, broad shoulders straining the seams of his suit coat. He stands as they enter and waits until they each grab a barstool.
