Author Interview with Shyla Colt

CK: Please welcome author Shyla Colt. Shyla’s books are simply fantastic and I can’t wait to read more of her work.

SC: I just wanted to say thank you to Charisma for having me over.  :) 

CK:  You’re welcome sweetie, anytime! Where did you submit your first story? Let’s talk about it!

SC:  Luck was on my side when I submitted my very first piece. I did some research and decided Evernight Publishing was the best fit for my paranormal adventure featuring angels and demons. They’ve been a big bag of wonderful, and I am grateful to be with them.

CK: Ah, that would be Don't Fear the Reaper. Here's the book cover and purchase link.

CK:  Talk to me about What The Heart Knows. That is a favorite of mine. I've read it twice since I purchased it. How did this particular story come to you?

SC:  I could see the character in my head, clearly. Oliver was a lanky, white-blond haired widower still hurting from the loss of his high school sweetheart turned wife a few years prior. When he walks into a tiny café he comes face to face with a new chance at love. It sounds almost sweet, but then my mind, being the twisted place it is, had to put a paranormal spin on it, lol.

CK:  From one twisted mind to another, there’s nothing wrong with twisted. I love the paranormal!!   ; )  What The Heart Knows intrigues me. What characters did you identify with the most? I’m trying hard not to include any spoilers in this interview. I’m curious to know which character other readers identified with and why. It would be nice if you could do a chat for this story in one of the book club groups on Facebook.

SC:  Wow… Oliver. Maybe because I’ve known loss that cuts you soul deep, and that struggle to pick yourself up, and keep putting one foot in front of the other until you actually feel human again.

CK:  It is a great struggling dealing with the loss of a loved one and the healing process takes time. We all mourn in our own way. Poor Oliver mourned for two years until he was finally able to move on. I loved how you put this story together. What is your newest release?

SC:  The Unveiling is my latest. It’s a Sci-fi romance with adventure, star crossed lovers, and genetically altered humans. It explores the question, What would you do if the one who caused years of heart ache is the one person you’re meant to be with forever, and the savior of your people? Could you forgive or would the hurt sour you?  It’s the sequel to The Wanting, and I actually have a trailer…

CK:  Very nice trailer. I have both books, and I'll be reading them soon. Let’s talk about your upcoming release!

SC:  I have a book releasing March 15th called, Vixen Healed. It’s the second in my Vintage Vixen series, and I’m very excited, because it’s my first Romantic Suspense! This is actually the first time I’ve spoken about it, so here’s a sneak peak at my blurb.

CK:  Awesome, here is the cover for Vixen Claimed which is currently out on all publishing platforms. Now is the time to check this read out before Vixen Healed hits the presses folks. 

Blurb: Vixen Healed
Eight years ago Claire’s’ life was shattered when her fiancée lost his life in a robbery protecting her. She’s picked up all the pieces and moved forward when the past returns. One of the robbers has been caught and she’s needed to testify. The feisty roller derby girl agrees with no qualms, but the murders’ partner has plans to silence her for good. She turns to Detective Kelly Quinn to keep her out of harm’s way. The attraction between them gives protective custody a whole new meaning.
Kelly never forgot Claire. He promised her once he’d see the murderous savaged brought to justice and he’s a man of his word. Feelings of protectiveness become passion, and the possibility of the one thing he’s sworn off, love. Can they come together to heal the hurts of the past and carve out a future filled with happiness?

CK:  Okay, another book of yours to add to my TBR pile. That sounds very interesting, thank you for sharing. What are your future goals? 

SC:  I’d like to put out longer books, see some of my babies in a bookstore, and attend a convention to CK:  That would be great to see a fellow author’s books on the shelves at Target or Walmart. One day that will definitely happen Shyla. What are your hobbies?

SC:  It sounds cliché, but I honestly do love to read. I also like to travel and listen to music.

CK:  How do you unwind?

SC:  Watch movies/shows, listen to music, and hang out with my family.

CK:  Do you mold your characters strictly from imagination or from those you cross paths with in everyday life?

SC:  Hmm, I think a little bit of both. Sometimes a character comes to me as is, and other times real life sparks a concept.

CK:  Do you allow your muse to take total control, or do you create an outline before writing? 

SC:  Funny story… my bestie and I have coined a phrase for the phenomenon of my muse taking the reins, Characters gone Rogue.  I used to be a planner, but I’ve found the best way to go now is to go in with a loose outline, usually in my head, and let the characters show me what’s going to happen. When I write I think of the book as a movie. So I go scene by scene vs. chapter by chapter.

CK:  What methods of research do you utilize? I know, I know! The internet is available, but do you scour the library as well? LOL

SC:  I love research. Even before professional writing my friends called me the “Queen of Research” so I dig deep. Internet, sometimes the library, but more than not I purchase the book, being a stay at home Mom it’s easier for me to buy it and read it on my Nook on my own time usually.

CK:  Inquiring minds what to know, where can you be found on the internet?

SC:  Haha If I told you that, I’d have to kill you…  seriously though, I’m always popping into the Evernight Reader’s group, my blog, Facebook, and Pandora, along with a bunch of random other places.. Oh Cant’ forget pinterest, love that place.

CK:  Lmao! Oh yeah, Pinterest is great. What advice would you like to pass on to aspiring authors?

SC:  Never give up. Write, Write, write, share with someone you trust, improve, and submit.

CK: Shyla, I couldn’t agree with you more.

The Bad Boys' Virgin Temptress

 The Law Castle Bad Boys, 1

Cheryl Fisher is a virgin on a mission. She’s spent the better part of her life caring for her sick mother. On her death bed, her mother made her promise to live life to the fullest and to never take one moment for granted. In order to fulfill her promise, she goes in search of the two men she can trust with her body.

Noah and Drew have had their eyes on Cheryl for a while. Both men know they want to share her. When Noah learns the truth about her virginity, he’s shocked by the possessive feelings he has towards her.

Together, they must show Cheryl that there is more to them than their bad boy reputation. They want her with them forever, and they will do everything in their power to fight for her.

Be Warned: menage sex (MFM), anal sex, spanking.

“You look fucking beautiful, angel.”
She blushed and went to cover her tits. He moved the short distance and pulled her hands away from covering her body. “Never try to shield yourself from me.”
He palmed her breasts, watching her eyes dilate and her lips part as her breathing changed to pants.
“Do you like what I’m doing to you?” he asked. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Drew fucking his fist. It had been a while since they’d shared a woman together, and the raw need he felt for the woman in front of him was reflected in his friend.
“Yes,” she said in response to his question.
“Tell me to touch you.” Noah wanted to hear her demands from her lips.
“Touch me, Noah.” His name on her lips sounded heavenly to him. Going to his knees in front of her, he took the edge of the cotton panties she wore and pulled them down her legs. Her pussy was covered with trim red pubic hair, telling him she truly was a real redhead.
When he had her naked and gasping he would take off his leather pants. The need to have her begging him to fuck her was strong. She lifted her feet, and he threw her panties away before he stood in front of her once more. She was biting her lip, tilting her chin back as he pulled her lip from between her teeth. He then claimed her lips as he caressed down her body, testing the weight of her breasts in his hands, going down and tracing circles in the swell of her tummy, settling on her mound at the apex of her thighs. Sliding a finger between her slit, he felt her wetness instantly. She was dripping.
“You’re so wet,” he said watching her face heat from a delightful blush. He hadn’t seen a woman blush in years. “Open your thighs. I want to feel your cunt.”
Noah groaned and wished he could take the words away. He didn’t want to speak crudely to her, but it was who he was. She opened her thighs, giving him easier access. Running his finger down to her entrance, he inserted a finger inside her, feeling a barrier but not thinking much of it. She was tight, hot, and wet. Slipping in a second finger he heard her wince.
“Has it been a while since you’ve been with a man?” he asked.
She mumbled something, and he felt a thrill go right down his spine from the pleasure of knowing he would be her first man in a long time. Removing his hand, he pushed her to the edge of the bed while Drew moved closer, climbing onto the bed behind her. Noah spread her legs, kneeling on the floor in front of her. Her cunt leaking out her cream was one of the most erotic views he’d ever seen. Using his thumbs, he pulled her lips apart for him to see her swollen clit peeking out of its hood. She looked red, swollen, and good enough to eat. Noah swiped his tongue from her cunt all the way up to her clit, swirling round the nub and back down.
He heard her scream, and glancing up, he saw Drew had turned to her side and was tonguing her nipples. Noah could only imagine that the dual sensations of their tongues would be driving her crazy. This is why he loved sharing her with his best friend. He got to see his woman lose control while still being able to touch her. An extra set of hands and lips were much better than doing it all alone. Pressing both of his thumbs against her clit, he watched what Drew was doing to her.
Her gaze kept shifting from Drew to him and then back again, her eyes growing wider with every passing second.
“Do you like this, Cheryl?” Noah asked.
“Yes. Touch me more. Please. I need to be touched.”
He licked her pussy, running his fingers through her hair trying to enhance every pulse of sensation.
“Touch me, baby,” Drew said.
Noah glanced up to watch her wrap her small hand around Drew’s large cock. The end was wet from his cum. The excitement was obviously becoming too much for his friend. Smirking at the look of pain on Drew’s face, Noah went back to licking the nicest cream he’d ever tasted.

The Bad Boys’ Reluctant Woman

 The Law Castle Bad Boys, 2
After living in the Foster system, Zoe Howard does not trust easily. She moves to Law Castle with the hope of settling down. What she doesn’t expect is to be the woman that three men desire.

Jake, Brent, and Connor have been friends all their lives. They want a woman to share, and they know that woman is Zoe. However, she keeps all three men at arm's length. Her reluctance is frustrating as they know she wants them back.

Zoe is reluctant to give herself to three men. She’s scared to love and to trust again. All three men fight her resolve and show her how it can feel to be loved by all of them. When Zoe ends up in danger, her men realize the love they feel for her.
But could they be too late to tell her how they feel?
Be Warned: anal sex, menage sex (MFMM)

She stared at his erection. He felt her gaze like a caress over his length. “I thought you didn’t want me.”
“Baby, I wish I was able to reduce my need for you. Look at me, Zoe. I’m dying here.”
Her chuckles lightened the mood. He took her hand and kissed her knuckles. “I didn’t push you away. I was trying to do the right thing.”
“Connor has seen me naked,” she said.
“Lucky bastard. He gets all the fun. I think it has something to do with that brooding thing he’s got going for him.”
She lifted the shirt up and over her head. “I think it is only fair you get to see me and make up your own mind.”
Brent stared at the perfection of her body. He’d had many sizes and shapes of women, and none of them held a candle to Zoe. She was all woman. Every part of her was full and soft. His cock pulsed at the sight of her.
His mouth watered for a taste of her.
“What else did Connor do?” he asked.
He would come if she said anything about fucking. Brent had no control left.
“He touched my breasts.”
“Like this?” he asked, reaching out and cupping the mounds. They were heavy and ripe. Brent loved the feel of them in his hands.
“Yes,” she said with a gasp to her voice.
“Do you like me touching you?”
“Yes.” Brent felt her tits and watched her nipples harden. “He licked my nipples as well.”
Pre-cum leaked out of the tip of his cock.
“Is that all he did?” Jake asked, startling them. Zoe spun around, and Brent pressed her against his front.
“Connor has touched her breasts, Jake,” he said, holding her tits in his hands.
“I see you have as well.”
“They’re perfect, Jake. Come and feel.”
Jake walked over and took what Brent offered.
Zoe was shaking between them. Brent leaned down and whispered in her ear. “If you want us to stop, say so.”
“No, I’m fine.”
“What else did Connor get to do?” Jake asked.

His Possession

The Owners, 1
Cadeon Ashwood is a dominant man who has one problem: he’s overly possessive. When he meets Violet Moore for the first time, he knows she is the woman for him. The possessive instinct she stirs within him can only mean one thing—she will be the woman who owns his heart.

Violet is a shy young woman who is trying to make her way in the world, but she has a dark past filled with shame. She is constantly looking over her shoulder.

When Cadeon sees an opportunity to get close to the younger woman, he takes it with everything he’s got. She drives him crazy with the way she bows her head, and her innocent blushing makes Cadeon want her more.

For too long she’s lived without love and safety. Cadeon offers her everything, but will she live long enough to enjoy it?
Be Warned: light BDSM, spanking.


“What are you doing?”

“Do you like it?” he asked.

She nodded her head with a frown. “It feels really good.”

Her legs opened wider, and he smiled. Cadeon focused all of his attention on her clit. He wanted to draw out her pleasure even as his cock was crying out for some of his own. Being naked, skin to skin with her was too much for him to contain. He used both fingers and pleasured her, sucking her nipples into his mouth. Her hips moved in sync with his fingers, riding his hand. It was a natural call to the woman within her.

He stared into her eyes as one of her hands touched his shoulder. She lifted up to look between her legs.

“Let it come, baby.”

Her gazed turned to him. He increased the pace of his fingers. Violet shook and screamed as her climax went through her. Cadeon brought her over the edge and kept her in the bliss for moments. He absorbed every sound and look coming from her. He relishing the knowledge he’d been the one to bring her to her first orgasm. When she came down, he reached over to the draw by the bed. He pulled out a long tube.

“What are you doing?” she asked breathlessly.

“It’s my turn, only I want us both to feel good.” He flicked open the tube of lubrication and smeared a generous amount on his dick before putting some more on his fingers. He threw the tube on the other side away from them. Bringing the blob on his fingers between her legs, he rubbed it over and between her slit, making sure she was nice and wet. Cadeon opened her legs and got between her.

Violet stopped him with a hand on his arm. “What are you doing?”

“Don’t worry. I’m not going to fuck you, but I need to come.” Taking a thigh in each hand, he opened her legs wide. For a second he stopped to admire the beauty of her pussy. The lips were wet with the mixture of the lube and cum, her clit red and swollen. She looked good enough to eat. He draped her legs over his thighs and grasped his cock. Cadeon moved the tip through her slit, not pressing against her entrance. He wasn’t lying when he said he wasn’t going to fuck her. This was about them getting used to each other. All thought if she begged him to fuck her, he would do it. He wanted her that badly.

He settled himself between her legs, his cock resting against her clit and between the lips of her pussy.

Taking her hands in his, he pinned them against the pillow by her head. “Look at me,” he said.

She opened her eyes and stared back at him. For the rest of his life he wanted to watch her. With a move of his hips he saw her eyes widen in wonder. Each movement provided him pleasure and pressed on her clit, giving her pleasure as well. He did it slowly at first, bringing out the sensation to make it more enjoyable for her. With her already having one release, he wanted to draw the second one out.

Sweat covered both of their skin as she began to move with him, her hips lifting with him. Part of him wanted to lift that last little bit and penetrate her, but he stopped. If he took her now, he could abuse the trust she had in him.

“Cadeon,” she said on a moan. He knew what she was thinking. His cock was rock hard, and he knew he was seconds from coming. Taking her lips in a searing kiss, he rode her harder. The sensation was enjoyable. However it wouldn’t be as good as the feel of her cunt squeezing him like a fist. Closing his eyes, he inhaled her scent. He bit down on her shoulder. The need to mark her as his. He sucked and did something he’d never done to another woman. He gave Violet his first ever love bite.
