From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Olivia Cunning
One Starry Night
In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek who’d had a crush on her, but when he’d found the courage to ask her to Prom, she’d turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isn’t high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any way—every way—they can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?


New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with… 
Boots Optional
A sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.


New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn gets it hot in here with… SHAMELESS
It's a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can't get the man's sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is... 

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend's little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam's put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?



New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby brings you…
PLAYING WITH FIRE
A ménage novella. Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were “different”, but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?


From USA Today bestselling author, Lainey Reese comes…
Guarding Nadia
When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards.  It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.

Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service.  They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard anyone, including the gorgeous erotic author.  Considering her stunning beauty, alluring sensuality and decadent profession, the only wonder was that she had drawn out just one obsessed fan.  After hearing Nadia's story and seeing for themselves the threat that she was under, they knew they could keep her safe from any stalker.
Their only worry...who was going to keep her safe from them?

Today’s spotlight is Rebecca Shea! You asked the questions, she answered them. Enjoy!

What inspired you to start writing?
I’ve always been a writer. I just never sat down and took the time to do it. I’ve always had the stories in my head, I just never really took the time to sit down and really fulfill the actual story put it pen to paper or sit down with the laptop to do it. So, I finally did that in I guess starting in 2012 is when I kind of really started working on the story. It took me a good eight months to get it out and where I was comfortable enough to say okay I’m going to send this out to beta readers and send it out to an editor. So, it took me a while, but it was just taking that time for myself to take that story and let it out of my head.

What are you planning to do next?
I am still working on two different stories. The third and final book in the Unbreakable series, which is titled Unforgiven, that will close out this series. Then I’m working on a standalone romantic suspense called Evil Lives Here. That one right now is kind of my favorite story. It’s just very different that the contemporary romance that I’ve been writing. It’s still contemporary romance, but it’s a little darker, a little more suspense to it. I read multiple genres. I fluctuate between romance and mystery thriller. I love Mary Higgins Clark. I love Patricia Cornwell. So, I’m kind of taking some of those little things I’ve read in their work, just that, that suspense background and working it into the romance, contemporary romance novel.

Add them to your Goodreads

If you could turn one of your books into a TV series or a movie, which one would you choose?
Oh my gosh! I think it would be Unbreakable. I think that there is just a lot happening in that story. There’s a lot of characters. There’s a lot of depth in that story that eventually carries on to Undone, but you get so much background in Unbreakable. I think that would be the one I’d make into a movie. It’s funny too cause those are the ones that I found real life actors to envision as my characters.


Who’s your dream cast?
For Gabe Garcia is was Jay Hernandez from the Friday Night Lights T.V. series. Jessica Harper, Jess, I really envisioned Emma Roberts; the dark haired Emma Roberts as her. Just kind of that young, very innocent sweet face. And Landon was always

Stephen Amell from the Arrow series. He’s just got that very sexy, rugged look about him. Kind of that all American, even though he’s Canadian, that all American, kind of that sandy blonde hair, the blue eyes but very mysterious kind of look to his face too which is just totally my Landon. So, that would have been my dream cast.




What inspired your characters?
I don’t even know. It was just like I said, it was a story that I had in my head and I just you know just wrote it.

What is the time frame from start to finish for your first book?
My first book, I started writing it in December of 2012 and I published it in July. It was technically done in June, but I waited. For me I just wanted to take my time with it. So, it was I guess about eight months total for my first book. Which everybody tells me is not a bad timeframe cause some people work for years on a book.

If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
Well, I’m not always a writer. I actually work full-time in the financial services industry. I’m a Marketing Manager for a bank. I love my job. It keeps me busy. I love my co-workers. I never to intend to quit just to write. I love writing to write. I love writing stories. I guess it’s a hobby of mine. But, if I ever became dependent on it to pay my bills or put food on the table for my family I feel like I would lose the love for it because now it’s the pressure.

Who do you fangirl over?
Oh my gosh, Rebecca Donovan. She was like my…I just…I just get nervous. I took a picture with her today and I was like ahhhh. I love her and she’s so sweet. I really respect her and what she’s done with her business. I just I adore her.


Well that’s it folks! Ten authors. One fun event. I thank all the authors for their time and you for stopping by and reading their interviews. Check out more about Rebecca Shea below.
