Happy 3rd Anniversary, THIRTY DAYS!

Three years ago today I kept checking Liquid Silver's home page in an obsessive fervor. I knew books didn't release until 7PM but that didn't stop me from spending all day looking! I don't think I got much work done at the evil day job. *cackle*

Three years... They say time flies when you're having fun. So many stories written, some published, some filed in the folder called "under the bed", some saved for another day. Eighteen stories released and one sold and on the way.

In celebration of the third anniversary of THIRTY DAYS, I'm celebrating with a contest! Winner's choice of a download of any of my published ebooks or an autographed copy of either NAUGHTIEST NUPTIALS, PAST LIES or MASTERS OF DESIRE. Also the winner will receive a goodie box of chocolate and coffee!

For a chance to win, email me a list six (6) of my book titles at shayla AT shaylakersten DOT com. You can find all the titles on my website at www.shaylakersten.com. If you've read them, tell me which one is your favorite. If you haven't, tell me which one sounds like something you'd be interested in! Your answers could decide what kind of story I write next! *grins*

The contest will close in one week (December 25) at midnight Central time. The winner will be announced on Saturday, December 26, at 7PM Central.


THIRTY DAYS

Blurb:

Biton Savakis, a 42 year old wealthy lawyer in New York City, is lost without his beloved slave of ten years. Since Erik’s death from cancer three months before, the will to continue his life as a Dom slipped away. Until now. The forlorn looking redhead seems as lost as Biton feels. Maybe the young man can help ease his tension, even if only for a little while.

Cavan never chose the life of a slave but he doesn’t clearly remember a time when he wasn’t one. Beaten close to death and thrown aside by his former Master, Cavan doesn’t know how to do anything else. When Biton offers him a temporary contract, Cavan doesn’t understand the meaning of his new Master’s words. All he knows is he has a new home and someone to serve. But what will happen to him when the contract ends... In thirty days...

Congrats on the anniversary, Shayla! You're one of my favorite M/M romance writers, so I hope you write many many more! I'm btw very curious about the 'under the bed' folder ;)!

Of course I can't say no to winning another one of your books, because there're still a few of the 18 books I haven't purchased yet :)
So 6 of your book titles are:
A Helping Hand, Hidden Force, Forever, Hidden Hands, The Cost of Eternity and Double Happiness.
From the ones I've read I loved A Helping Hand and Forever the most, both had very good suspense added to the great emotional tension and really hot scenes and protags. I like the heart wrenching parts in your stories a lot!
Keep it up & happy anniversary :)
Hugs,
Janna
