*Welcome the lovely Lily Harlem to In Shadows. She’s talking about her book Joy Ride part of Ellora’s Cave Spice Rack series under the Branded imprint.

Thank you so much for inviting me to In Shadows today, it’s
fabulous to be here! I’m very excited about the new novella I have out at
Ellora’s Cave… it’s rude and raunchy and will be sure to give readers some
wicked ideas on these long dark, mid-winter nights. Not only that it might just
be a Christmas present solution for the guy or gal in your life… 

Whoa, sounding good? I’ll start at the beginning shall I? 
Joy Ride is part of
an exciting new series from Ellora’s Cave called The Spice Rack?
What’s it all about…? It centers around the concept of The
Spice Rack, a new adult novelty toy designed to add some heat back into a
couple’s love life. Oh, la, la, and it’s sexy and saucy and Joy Ride, the third addition to the
series but a perfect standalone read, is now available. 
Blurb: Kimberly is
desperate—muffling gasps of pleasure under the covers is just not doing it for
her. She loves and desires her husband, but she needs more. 
Could the Spice Rack
picked up at a girly, wine-infused party be the solution? Anticipation floods
her body as she opens the first “task”. What the…? How is “love on the move”
going to spice up her sex life? It’s impossible, or so she thinks, because when
a sudden sinful idea pops into her head she has to act, much to Nate’s delight. 
Until they’re spotted,
pulled over, hauled out and cuffed, and not in fluffy pink. They’re in for it,

the glint in Nate’s eye tells Kimberly he’s finally got her exactly where
he wants her. It might feel like hell, but before she knows it she’s catapulted
to a heavenly place she’s been longing to revisit. As long as they can get away
with it. 

So where did I get the idea from to have a married couple
behaving so badly they get cuffed, thrown in the back of a policevan and then
have a wonderful time when they were least expecting it? I guess it’s going
back to something I often write about and that’s established couples having
sexy fun. I like the idea that there’s a history between them when I write the
words Chapter One. Love and commitment, respect and desire are already there
and it all makes for the perfect recipe for a wild time that can push
boundaries because the characters are already connected and in tune.
Sometimes when characters have only just met it can be
fantastical or even plain unbelievable if they start ‘going for it’ with all
the frills and bells, whips and chains and glitter coated feather-dusters. But
a couple already emotionally invested in one another in all aspects of their
lives gives a much broader spectrum of fantasies to be dabbled with. It’s real
and it happens. Most adults are in or have been in a long term relationship
where the first flush of ‘I’ve got to rip your clothes off right now’ has
passed. But I LIKE that, a lot, it gives me a hundred and one plot lines to have
fun with. Just look at That Filthy Book – http://www.amazon.com/That-Filthy-Book-ebook/dp/B008G6RYF4/ref=la_B004MHRTQK_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382536765&sr=1-2,
a novel that has very few characters except for the married couple, yet they
get up to all manner of kinks as they rediscover the things that once made them
wild for each other. One review even
said “Every woman must read this book.” It was a complete blast to write and
pushed many boundaries even some that border on taboo.
And wild is exactly
what I did with Joy Ride. Using the Spice Rack instruction of ‘Express You Love
On The Move’ I pushed Kimberly and Nate’s lackluster bedroom activities onto a
whole new level of fun. Phew, I’d like to write about the next jar they open,
they’re a rampant couple when they get going and these jars are chilli pepper
Thanks so much for having me today, Brynna.
It’s always fun to hang out here and so near to Christmas is a real treat.
