FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question: Why can't I find some of your titles in print in bookstores?
Answer: Some of my titles are independently published. Bookstores don’t typically carry indie fiction. There’s a long, business-related explanation for this, but rest assured, in every case possible I make sure there’s a print book available. Buy links for any given title are always listed on the book’s overview page on this site. Additionally, every book I have in print can be purchased via the Shayla store, signed and personalized as desired.
Question: Why so long between books in any given series?
Answer: Writing and editing a book is a time-consuming process. Juggling more than one series is a delicate balance, and I try my best to release something in every series as often as I can. Coordinating schedules with my partners on collaborative series is even more challenging. I promise I’m always hard at work to give readers the next adventure as soon as possible!
Question: Which of your series have to be read in order?
Series that must be read in order for full understanding: Unbroken (formerly Doms of Her Life) and Perfect Gentlemen.
Series that can be read as standalones (but you may enjoy the interactions and characters more if you've read in order): Reed Family Reckoning (formerly More Than Words), Wicked Lovers, Devoted Lovers, Wicked & Devoted, Forbidden Confessions, Masters of Ménage, Misadventures, and Sexy Capers.
Question: Will you be writing more Wicked Lovers novels?
Answer: The final full-length Wicked Lovers book, Holding on Tighter, is available. My spin-off series, Devoted Lovers, debuted with Devoted to Pleasure. If you're wondering what happened with Cutter Bryant, start there, then continue with Devoted to Love. Want to know about Brea and One-Mile? Launch into Wicked & Devoted, beginning with the duet, Wicked as Sin and Wicked Ever After.
Question: I watched the book video for Decadent and I love that song. Who sings it?
Answer: I don’t know who sings it, but a man named Dan Gautreau is the composer. I love the song, too!
UNBROKEN (DOMS OF HER LIFE)
Question: Will you and Jenna Jacob be releasing book 3 in the Heavenly Rising saga (The Commitment) anytime soon? Will it be available in audio, too?
Answer: The Commitment finally has a release date of June 7, 2022! It will release in eBook and print simultaneously, with audio to follow later. Click here for details and preorder links.
MASTERS OF MÉNAGE
Question: Will you and Lexi Blake be writing another Masters of Ménage book?
Answer: Currently we have no plans to release more books in this series.
THE PERFECT GENTLEMEN
Question: Will you and Lexi Blake be writing the continuing adventures of their children?
Answer: At this point, we have no plans to write more books in this series.
Question: Will you be writing more Doomsday Brethren books?
Answer: I hope to release another one someday. Besides my schedule being VERY full, I have some contractual issues with the original publisher that nixed my plans to reissue previous titles (with all the sex and other deleted scenes they'd removed) so I could continue the series. If that changes, then I'll work a new DDB title into my calendar because I miss these characters, too. Rest assured, I've heard from MANY of you who want to know what's going to happen with Bram and his mysterious Emma. And of course, lots of people ask for an update on the big guy, Shock. I'm hoping this situation resolves itself soon. I'll keep everyone advised if there's any progress.
