Confessions of a Sex Demon Release Party!!

We have a special treat at A Tasty Read today...Not only are we celebrating the Release of Jaye Shields first published Novella, Confessions of a Sex Demon, but we have Jaye here chatting with us, and we are also going to hear from Zahra and Lennox, the hero and heroine from Confessions, the first book in a Trilogy published through Beachwalk Press.  I am also giving away FOUR Digital copies of the novella, so make sure to find out how YOU can enter the giveaway!!

A Tasty Read: Jaye, welcome to A Tasty Read...I am honored to have not just a Newly Published Author, but an amazing Crit Partner and Great Friend here with me celebrating the release of her FIRST published romance...How do you feel today?

Jaye Shields: I am honored to be with A Tasty Read on my release day. It should be mentioned that there would probably be no Confessions of a Sex Demon without Tasty’s head lady and crit partner extraordinaire! She said, “Do an erotic novella” and I did! Now I have a dead-sexy trilogy coming out!

A Tasty Read: I have had the honor of not only reading the complete Trilogy, but being involved since day one.  Tell all my Tasty Readers a little it about the first book, Confessions of a Sex Demon?  Where did the idea to write about Sex Demons come from?

Jaye: Well, since I made the decision to switch from full-length paranormals to flaming hot novellas, I thought, hey, I need a good title. Because of course, who needs a plot? I was walking to the coffee shop to write my very first scene (no clue what the book was about yet) and the title came to me. Confessions of a Sex Demon. It was a title so delicious I just had to tell the tale. Our heroine, Zahra is a sex demon and needs climax to survive J Things just went from there.

When I arrived at the coffee shop I was ready to write the first line:

Returning the metal-barbed chains to her wall of toys, Zahra Aniron exhaled the last tremors of passion from her body.

A Tasty Read: Sounds SPICY!!  Let's just hope no one at the coffee shop was looking over your shoulder.

What can we expect next from Jaye?  Now that you are officially a published writer, where do you go from here?

Jaye: The entire Sex Demon Trilogy will be releasing from Beachwalk Press. That’s right, Claiming of a Sex Demon will be out in December, and Addictions of a Sex Demon will be out in February. Claiming of a Sex Demon is actually a bit of a prequel, and we see why Lennox went a bit nutzo. In Claiming, we see Zahra’s brother steal away Lennox’s girl ;) And Addictions of a Sex Demon is Sephina’s story. Gotta love that succubus, you’ll get to know her in Confessions as Zahra’s sister.


I also have a full-length, sensual paranormal trilogy set to release this October from Crimson Romance. The first book is titled Secrets of the Fog, and I think those who love Confessions of a Sex Demon will also adore the handsome immortal knights from my Immortals in Alameda trilogy.

A Tasty Read: I KNOW your fans are going to fall in love with the Knights of the Fog, they are all quite tasty and they don't wear many clothes..hee hee.

Let's talk to the two people, who without them, we would have no Confessions at all, Lennox Aegros and Zahra Aniron. 

Hey guys, thanks so much for coming by A Tasty Read to chat with me.  So tell me, who has the bigger ego, now that your book is finally published?

Lennox: Her. No question. After all, Zahra is now the famed sex demon.

Zahra: Yep, definitely me. I have grand plans of starting a line of leather corsets and it’s gonna be called, “Made By the Famous Sex Demon”. Has a nice ring to it, no? I told Lennox we could do some badass advertising by engraving the blades of the swords he makes with “the Sex Demons Trilogy”, but he wouldn’t have it. I might have to seduce it out of him later.

A Tasty Read: I sincerely think you might be able to change his mind!!  Zahra, when did you first know that you were in love with Lennox?  Personally, I would have made him beg and pine for my affections a bit longer, but you are a better woman than me.

Zahra: No, no, I totally get the “hard to get” thing. Great strategy! I think that may have been Lennox’s thing all along. A lot of people think succubi are easy, but that’s just me. When you need climax to survive, one gets much less selective. Which is probably why I fell for my kidnapper. He had me at ‘bondage’.  In all honesty, there was a very tender moment when I fell for him, but if I told you, it’d spoil the surprise!

A Tasty Read: Lennox, some readers may feel that you were not just the hero of Confessions, but also a villain?  How do you feel about being cast in that kind of light? 

Lennox: It’s true. I was in a very dark—

Zahra: Psychopathic—

Lennox: place. I had every intention of destroying Zahra, but once I had her…destruction turned to desire.

A Tasty Read: Do I dare ask about Emmerie and Reza?  (Hee Hee)

Zahra: You just think he’s sexy when he’s all raging, don’t you?

Lennox: I already promised Zahra I’d forgive the miserable son of a—future brother in law. After all, having Emmerie taken from me was the best thing for all parties, because I found my soul mate.

A Tasty Read: Will we get to see you both again in Claiming and Addictions? 

 Lennox: You’ll see a bit of me in both. Claiming of a Sex Demon was before I met Zahra, and in Addiction of a Sex Demon for most of the book. After all, Zahra and I have to look out for out girl, Sephina. Love can be a dangerous endeavor, especially when you fall in love with a dragon demon.

Zahra: I kick some major ass in Addictions of a Sex Demon. That book is action-packed, and I’m not just talking about hot sex, so stay tuned…

A Tasty Read: Thanks soooooo much to all of you for taking the time to attend The Confessions Release Party at A Tasty Read, and Jaye, congratulations on your first published romance, I know my Tasty Readers will completely Fall In Love with this Trilogy!! 

Jaye: Thanks for having me, my love. XOXO
