Event: Tie Me Up in July with Shiloh Walker (Interview/Giveaway)

Hot in Handcuffs holds novellas from not one or two amazing authors; it also has a FBI Psychics novella from well known romantic suspense author Shiloh Walker. And we are lucky enough to have her stop by today, and we didn’t even have to handcuff her to get answers from her! Welcome Shiloh!

Shiloh: Thanks for having me drop by… 

Lexi: Hot in Handcuffs sounds...well, hot. Your novella The Unwilling seems to have your signature suspense theme. But since it is part of a book of “Three Novellas of Erotic Capture” did you put a little more steam or BDSM than usual?

Shiloh: There aren’t any BDSM elements in mine, no… the connecting element with the three books is really the law enforcement rather than BDSM, although I know each of us played up different elements in our stories.  But there wouldn’t have been any way for me to play that angle and still do justice to the story, from both a suspense angle and the way my series works, considering the confines of a novella’s length.  It’s steamy, yes, but most of my books are.

Lexi: This isn’t your first book to have handcuffs on the cover or in the title (Whipped Cream and Handcuffs). Nor is it the first novella compilation you have done with Shayla and Sylvia. Seems your naughtier side comes out in your novellas. Do you enjoy writing novellas more than your novels, or maybe just being able to write something in a common theme as other authors is good inspiration?

Shiloh: Well, it’s sort of the first project with the three of us, really.  We had an ebook project that we put together, but none of us really worked together on a theme for that one.  We did focus more on this one.  
As to novels versus novellas…stories are just going to be what they are.  Some are meant to be shorter, some are meant to be longer.  Just as some are meant to be hotter and some aren’t.  I give the story what it needs, what it asks for.  And ah…quite a few of my full length books are pretty hot.  BROKEN, for one.  CHAINS was another…it’s three connected novellas with a mystery that runs throughout the entire story.

Lexi: You have multiple series that cover paranormal, mystery, suspense, military and a few more. Multiple series yet they could be called dark and some erotic. A tricky combination when you want to end up happy at the end. Would you say your books are romance, in that they have their happily ever after endings?

Shiloh: With one or two exceptions, yes, all of my books are romance.  The only exceptions are a new series I’m starting under my alter-ego J.C. Daniels—the COLBANA FILES, which is urban fantasy.  It’s got a romantic subplot to it, and will probably appeal to paranormal romance readers, but it’s not romance—there’s no neat little bow at the end of the book.  The other title that had more of a Happy For Now was DRASTIC MEASURES, an erotica title that came out from Ellora’s Cave.  

Lexi: After reading the excerpt on your web site for The Unwilling I am really hoping for a HEA for Mica and Colby. They both have unusual psychic abilities that give them something to bind them closer together. If you could have a psychic ability would you want one? 

Shiloh: None.  Unless I can psychically wish my house clean at the drop of a hat.  I don’t think any psychic gift would come without tremendous burdens and I’d rather not shoulder them.

Lexi: Psychic ability or not we still loved having you stop by the blog today. Congrats on your new release. Hope you get some down time this summer, or at least time to take a break from your many, many writing projects and open a bottle of wine! 

Shiloh: Wine…. Happy sigh.

Thanks Shiloh!

Three Novellas of Erotic Capture

Arresting Desire by Shayla BlackFBI Agent Jon Bocelli never stopped wanting beautiful professor Lucia DiStefano. She’s interested in taking her first lover, and he intends to be that man. When her past puts her life in danger, Jon risks everything to save her and prove this fling is forever.
On Fire by Sylvia DayWhen Deputy Marshal Jared Cameron investigates a series of arson attacks in a seaside town, the biggest blast of heat comes from sexy fire inspector Darcy Michaels—until their scorching after-hours affair is compromised by a secret from Darcy’s past.
The Unwilling by Shiloh WalkerMica Greer and her former lover, ex-FBI agent Colby Mathis once shared an intimate past and a powerful psychic gift. Now, they’ve been reunited by a bizarre series of murders—and an electrifying passion that could put them both in jeopardy.

  1. Congrats on the new release. I don't think I'd like to have any psychic ability. It would be too much of a burden, too much work trying to help everyone or trying to keep it quiet.


  2. I have been eagerly waiting for this book to release!! All 3 authors are fantastic individually, all 3 together...I won't be able to put this book down once it's in my hands!!
    As for phychic abilities??? You know when you connect with someone so well it's kind of scary? I am like that with my Mom, we always end up wearing the same color, calling each other at the same time, I kind of "know" when she needs me. That is about as close to a psychic ability as I ever want to get. Kerry

  3. I LOVE these 3 authors and I am eagerly waiting to read this anthology! GL!

  4. I have the ability to send telepathic messages to my husband. He gets them even when he's halfway around the world. Me on the other hand cannot/will not receive them ;). That's good enough for me.


  5. I would love to do the mind control thing like the Vampires from the Night Huntress series. Yes it's a bit intrusive at times, but it would come in so handy on some days!! I can't wait for this book. From the blog post alone I am dying to get my hands on it.

  6. 3 of my favorite authors! Love the cover. I don't want any psychic abilities. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. 3 of my favorite authors! Love the cover. I don't want any psychic abilities. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. I would love to be able to read peoples minds, how fun would that be. Thx for giveaway.

  9. Hmmm, there are so many to choose from! I'd like to be able to communicate with animals. It's got lots of benefits and fewer downsides than any of the others. Plus, wouldn't you just love to know what your cat is thinking when it gives you that disdaining look?

  10. I would like to be able to control people's minds! My husband would be the most thoughtful man alive, and my kids would never disobey, LOL!

  11. Love the cover of your new release!!!
    No I don't want to be psychic or wish my husband to be so; I'd rather struggle through trying to figure out our miscommunications on our own!

  12. I really can't think of any psychic ability that I would want to have. And I definitely don't want my husband to have any! Especially mind reading! LOL!!!

  13. Hard choice. I think I'd like to have telekinesis.

  14. OOOH!! I work all night restuarant so I often get to see the 'hot cops'! I would love to win this to add to the existing fantasies *winks*

    Hmm, I would love to have the power to be invisible. Imagine...being able to sneak around and hear or see many unobserved activites. Or even to invisibly caress a hot body without that one knowing what is stirring ones desires.

  15. I would like to have the ability to predict a murder before it happens so it can be stopped. I really want to read this book. It sounds very good.

  16. I have always thought being able to read other's emotions would be a super useful super power. jepebATverizonDOTnet

  17. I'd like to be able to predict winning lottery ticket numbers!
    sallans d at yahoo dot com

  18. Congrats on the new release! I'd love the ability to see the future :) (especially for lottery numbers!)

  19. The only psychic ability that I can think of that I would want is one to know the lotto numbers to win big one time. Not only would I help friends & family, but I would also help many charities for children, animals, elderly, and the ill.

  20. I would like to know if someone is lying or telling the truth. I think knowing what people are thinking would drive me insane but to know if people are truthful would be imporant.

  21. Great post!! I would love to have the "wiggle my nose and things get done" power. Oh the amount of time I would have to read!!

  22. I am really looking forward to reading Hot in Handcuffs. As for psychic abilities I would love to be able to communicate telepathically with my husband and to read his mind. Would love to know what he's thinking when he says "yes, dear."

  23. I would like telekinesis. This sounds like such an awesome book. I love all 3 authors!

  24. I wish I could tell if people were good or bad by seeing their aura. Being psychic sounds so intriguing.

  25. Thanks for the chance to win this book & the review. I think I'd like to be able to predict the future.

  26. I'd love to have telekinesis! it would save me so much time and effort lol I'd never have to move all day. I know, I'm lazy lol

  27. I'm totally going to throw in my two cents - I think its wonderful you write across so many genres. It keeps you fresh and you definitely have a talent for it. If it has your name on it, you know its gonna be good!

  28. While its fun to imagine I dont think I would actually want one. Too much stress in an already stress filled world to deal with it.

  29. I'd love any psychic ability as long as I could turn it off whenever I wanted:)

  30. I would love my hubby to have the physic ability to understand what I mean not what I say :O)

  31. I think I would like to be able to be able to read peoples emotions and be able to soothe them. Thanks for the giveaway! I love all 3 authors in this book.


  32. Hm. Yeah I don't think I'd want any either. Maybe being able to talk to animals? Would come in handy some days but might make my eye twitch if I really knew what they were thinking.

  33. Love your books Shiloh! I'm not so sure I would want an ability...but then maybe if I could tell people subconscious to tip me more at work would be fun! Lol

  34. I love Shiloh's books and think she is a very accomplished author. I would love to have the ability to speak to animals. That would be an amazing talent. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com

  35. Sometimes i think it would be great to be able to read minds.. or maybe atlest my hubbie every once in awhile, you know when you just dont want to talk but he should really know what your thinking;)
    Great post, thank you for sharing.

  36. No physic abilities between my husband and I and I think that is a good thing. Neither of us need any additional responsibilities!

  37. I don't know that a would what any physic abilities I thanks that would take the fun out of life. All three of the authors are great Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  38. There'd definitely be times when some psychic ability would come in useful--mindreading, for instance--but it'd have to be something I could learn to control. It'd be awful to go around being blasted by everyone's every thought! But there are definitely times when knowing what another person wants would come in handy!

    Can't wait to read Hot in Handcuffs!

  39. hot finds.. love these types of books.... cant wait for this giveaway!! so excited

  40. i hope i have a power to make prediction about the future..

    1. I wish i knew that the person I'm taking to on POF is legit and the one for me lol!

  41. Shiloh congrats on your continuous success with your books. Like you I don't think I would want physic abilities. I have enough to worry about being "normal".
    Thanks for the chance to win you anthology.
