FAQs & Events



Question: Why can't I find some of your titles in print in bookstores?

Answer: Some of my titles, such as More Than Words books, are independently published. Bookstores don’t typically carry indie fiction. There’s a long, business-related explanation for this, but I'm trying to see if I can work around it. 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: Perfect Gentlemen, Doms of Her Life (both Raine Falling and Heavenly Rising), and Doomsday Brethren.

Series that can be read as standalones (but you may enjoy the interactions and characters more if you've read in order): More Than Words, Wicked Lovers, Devoted Lovers, Masters of Ménage, Misadventures, and Sexy Capers.


Question: When will you and Lexi Blake be releasing Perfect Gentlemen book 5, At the Pleasure of the President?

Answer: The fifth and final book to this series has been released. The series s now complete in eBook, print, and audio. For more information, click here.


Question: Will you be writing more Wicked Lovers novels?

Answer: The final full-length Wicked Lovers book, Holding on Tighter, is now available. For cover, blurb, and other details, check that title's overview page. My new spin-off series, Devoted Lovers, debuted with Devoted to Pleasure. If you're wondering what happened with Cutter, Brea, One-Mile and the rest of the gang, start there, then read Devoted to Love!

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!


Question: Will you and Lexi Blake be writing another Masters of Ménage book?

Answer: We’re still hoping to release the next in the series, Their Virgin Bride, in 2020. Cover, blurb, and preorder links coming as soon as they are available.


Question: Will you, Jenna Jacob, and Isabella LaPearl be releasing book 2 in the Heavenly Rising saga (The Chase) anytime soon? Will it be available in audio, too?

Answer: The Chase released in eBook and print on October 1. Audio will follow sometime this winter. When I have details, I will post them. For more information about the book, click here.


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.
