This week’s #TBT takes us back to Caleb and Carlotta in
Could their second chance be their first real love?
In 2018, you will see my celebration of 20 years in the publishing industry!
Join me all year as I look back on the 60+ books I’ve published.
Please don't forget to share all my Secrets—and this Teaser Thursday—with your reader friends. Thank you for being on this amazing journey with me. Hugs!
“You deserve to be protected and pampered, Lottie. You deserve someone who will be happy to indulge your whims every now and then just for the pleasure of seeing you smile. And you need someone willing to make sure you take care of yourself properly.”
Carlotta seemed to hold her breath. She blinked at him. “I am too old now for matters of the heart. I have two beautiful grandsons and—”
“And if you finish that sentence, you won’t like what comes next. You are notold.” He gritted his teeth, his palm itching to meet her backside. Hell, he hadn’t felt an urge to punish a woman this way in years… None of them had mattered enough to try. “Do you hear me, Lottie?”
“Caleb, stop. I know that I am no longer young. Once I was pretty, like my Kata.”
“You’re still so goddamn beautiful it makes me hurt to hear that you think otherwise. If you’d give me half a chance, I’d exhaust myself proving over and over how incredibly lovely I think you are.”
A pretty rosy flush crept up her cheeks. “I am far too old for sex.”
Caleb snorted. Is that what she thought? “Wanna bet? I guarantee you that I could make you think otherwise.”

In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination.

She’s thrilled that she’s been living her dream as a full-time author for the past nine years.
Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her teenage daughter, and two spoiled tabbies. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.
