He just had to find Marcus's friends and let them know that they are being led into a trap…and then go back to hell.

When Dean goes to the place where he's supposed to pick Marcus up, he finds something else altogether. Poppy is sweet and innocent and about as sexy as he could possibly be.

But when danger arrives on their doorstep, Dean's training as an assassin comes in handy, especially when Poppy is kidnapped by the same men that held him in the first place. And Dean has no remorse whatsoever about killing anyone that stands between him and the man he's falling for.

Going back to the beginning, show us the day you received your publication offer or the first time you saw your bound book. Oh that was an amazing day.  I anxiously opened my email from the publisher. I had half expected a rejection, because, well, I had a collection of those nasty letters. But it was an acceptance.

Do you really write everyday? Nope. I wish I could. But I have my covers to design and I do love my job.  Time management would benefit me beautifully!
 
What would you say is a true hero? Strong enough to put up with me, sweet enough to understand me, and smart enough to appreciate me!
 
How much does reader reaction mean to you as an author? I don't think readers realize the impact they have on an author with their reviews.  Good reviews have you soaring, bad ones have the power to beat you down!
 
When did you know you wanted to be a writer? In the sixth grade. I wrote a story for a competition and I actually won!  I was invited to attend a young author's conference.  It was amazing!
 
Do you have any unfinished projects sitting around? Oh Lord yes!  I have more unfinished projects than finished ones
 
What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome to become an author? My inborn insecurities.
 
What do your family and friends think about you writing erotic romance?  I ask because some people us a PEN name and don’t tell their friends or family they write erotic romance? Very few people know about my writing. I don't want them reading it. Not just because some of it is erotic, but because much of it is my inner most thoughts, etc.  Isn't if funny that I don't mind showing that to strangers but I don't want my friends to see?
 
If you were a Superheroine/Hero, would you wear tights and a cape? Heck no! Black leather, shades and a sword
 
You have to ask a fictional character out on a date. Who would you ask and what would you do together? I'd totally ask out Zane Weather from THE DEMON IS IN THE DETAILS.  He's over two thousand years old.  I bet he has some stories to tell...and did I mention he's super hot?????
 
Do you take suggestions on books or ideas from your fans? Just this evening a wonderful lady wrote to me and told me much she enjoyed IN SARAH'S SHADOW.  She asked me to write another American Historical Romance...when I'm done with my current WIP, I think I'll do that!
 
What project are you working on now? I'm working on THE GROUPIE right now.  It's about a woman who wins ticket to see her country music idol.  They meet, have sex but that's only the beginning.  Just let me say, she has a lot to learn about Thad Curtis!
 
What do you find the most difficult to write? Dialogue? Back story? Emotion? I worry that my descriptions are lacking. After I write the first draft I go back and fill in to clarify the picture in my head for my readers.
 
Do you have the support of family and friends? My family is terrific and are very supportive. I'm very lucky in that regard.
 
Do you prefer stand-alone books or series? I prefer stand-alones but I think readers prefer series. 
 
If you could travel through time to visit a special time period or famous person, what or who would it be and why? I would love to go back in time and tell William Wallace who he could and couldn't trust!  I'm a big fan of Scottish history and I find the medieval period fascinating.  Of course, I'd want to bring, soap and deodorant with me!

 
SPEED TRAP
White Springs Collection 1
Abuse drove Libby away from Arkansas and right into White Springs, Tennessee and the arms of Officer Keith Davidson. But can the instant attraction they feel for one another turn to something more? And if it does, will her past come calling and ruin everything?
EXCERPT:
Libby looked up at him. Dressed in a white tank, jeans, and flip-flops, she noted that even out of uniform, he cut a fine figure. Her heart fluttered and when the idea of him kissing her entered her mind, she didn’t stop it. She wondered how he would taste and if he were gentle and giving or forceful and demanding.

"Just helping where you’re able?" she asked, her voice cracking.

"I guess you could say that."

She straightened and moved toward him, the heat from the grill nothing in comparison to the heat in her body. "You take in stray woman often?"

He grinned, no humor in those silver eyes. With a raised brow, he asked, "You a stray or you something special?"

Rising on her toes, she leaned in her lips less than an inch from his and yet he didn’t move to kiss. He just stood there like a statue.

"Why don’t you tell me, if I’m something special." She set her hand atop his chest, his heart pounding against her fingertips in a ferocious beat.

"Woman, don’t tempt me."

"You’d be helping me out," she replied, her mind reeling. What was she doing? He was a stranger. Handsome, seemingly kind and oh so sexy, but a stranger! And yet when he stared into her eyes, the intensity of his gaze had her legs growing weak. She wanted him like she’d never wanted a man before.

The sad fact was Dwayne Parsons was her one and only lover. She’d had men interested, and even dated, but that had been as far as it went. The realization burned through her and she watched him, waiting. Needing him to erase Dwayne from her body.

He took a step back and turned his face back toward the grill. "Dinner will be ready soon. In the meantime, will you get me a beer from the fridge?"

Humiliated, she marched inside, the cool air from refrigerator doing, little to cool the hot humiliation that burned her cheeks. Grabbing a beer, she brought him the bottle, his finger brushing against her as he took it from her. Watching her, he took a long swig, his demeanor changed. Keith had gone and Officer Davidson returned.

"Sweetheart, what was that all about?"

"I don’t know, was I reading you wrong?"

He ran his fingers through his chestnut hair, not answering.

"You don’t find me attractive?" she asked in a rush, shame at needing to know the answer burning in her cheeks.

"I didn’t say that. I’ll take you and it’ll be good. Is that what you want?"

"What if I say yes?"

He slammed the lid of the grill and walked to where she stood, backing her up against the house. "Is that what you’re saying?" he asked, his chest rising and falling in rapid, excited breaths. "I want you to know, I did not bring you here for that."

His admission made her want him all the more. "Yes. Now what do you say?"

"I say, let’s don’t waste any more time."

CHATTING WITH GAY ROMANCE AUTHOR -- JAMIE LAKE

Please welcome Jamie Lake as she  tells about her latest novel "Bad Boy" and answers a few questions for us.

For those who haven’t read Bad Boy, what’s it about? It’s actually based on a true story in part. I tell the story of a kindergarten teacher who does erotic massages at night and what happens when he tries to live a double-life. The real story wasn’t a kindergarten teacher but I thought that would be the last person who you’d ever expect to do that type of career.

How did you come up with such hot sex scenes? Thanks! Well, it’s not easy because m/m readers have read about every position ever created so it was really about brainstorming with my editor, trying to come up with something fresh and hot and something that maybe was a fantasy for me, personally.

There’s a thin line between prostitution and nude massages, how did you keep your character from dipping into the dark world? That was probably one of the biggest challenges in writing Bad Boy because you want the scenes to be hot but you can’t let the character go so far that it’s illegal. I think the trick was, staying more on the foreplay side of the fence as much as possible.

How many parts will be in the Bad Boy series? Right now, there are only 5 parts but if the readers ask for more, then I might very well add more. You never know!

Where can we get a copy of Bad Boy? You can get it exclusively on Amazon http://bit.ly/BADBOYNOVEL1 or email me at JamieLakeNovels@gmail
