She's thrilled that she's been living her dream as a full-time author for the past seven years.

Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her teenage daughter, and a very spoiled cat. In her "free" time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.

Tyler Murphy, the self-proclaimed "man whore," was a carefree LAPD detective, who loved life and his job. However, that all came to an abrupt end when his partner, Eric Catalano, was nearly fatally injured in the line of duty. Tyler found himself helping Eric and his wife, Delaney, hold it all together. After a night of too much drinking and not enough food, Eric, Tyler, and Delaney charted a course into territory that would change their lives forever. Soon after, Tyler found himself cut off from both Eric and Delaney with little to no warning. Fast forward two years, and Tyler opens his door to find Delaney Catalano on the other side. He could tell from her appearance that she was in trouble. But Delaney brought more than trouble with her; she also dropped the bomb that Tyler has a son.

As a local reporter in L.A., Delaney had stumbled upon information that put Martin Carlson, an up and coming ADA, in bed with some local gang members. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks out Tyler to take care of their son, Seth. Of course, when Tyler hears her entire story, he wants to get involved big time. However, Delaney is adamant that he stay with Seth. If anything happens to her, at least he will still have one parent. Never one to leave his friends or family hanging, Tyler puts himself into the equation that places him and Delaney up close and personal; right where she did not want to be. No matter how hard Delaney tries to ignore the feelings she long since buried, it's impossible to deny that there is something between them. Soon the pair finds themselves not only giving into desires they can no longer contain, but also trying to stay one step ahead of the thugs that Carlson hired to shut Delaney up for good.

First of all, may I say that I loved Tyler? Yes, he's the complete Alpha Male, but he does it with such caring and understanding that it tends to make a woman feel like warm goo rather than murderous, lol! I loved Del too. She's strong without being bitchy, warm without being sickening, and watches out for her son first and foremost. Usually I hate the "secret pregnancy" angle, but this one felt more believable for some reason. It must be Shayla Black's deft touch.

One of the things I appreciate about this author is that she can actually write. So much has been said recently about certain books that have BDSM themes that it makes me crazed that a writer that can actually WRITE and has been exploring the BDSM scene for so long has gone unrecognized, at least in comparison to this other "writer." I digress.

Once again, Black's characters are multi-dimensional, the story is rich and complex enough to engage the reader without venturing into "too many plots to keep track of." I can usually count on this author to give me a good, sexy read. And hey, that's good enough for me!

ARC review
Mine to Hold is a wonderful addition to the Wicked Lover's series. Mine to Hold is book 6. You can read it as a stand alone but there are so many awesome updates regarding the previous couples included that it would be more meaningful if you are a fan of the series. Plus they are OH so good.

I've always said that Shayla Black should win a prize for the best first lines of her books. Mine to Hold is no different.

"Tyler, are you aware that all the girls at Sexy Sirens have nick-named you Cockzilla?"

Got your attention right?

The first two chapters push all your curiosity buttons. You need to know how, what, why and when.

Delaney shows up at Tyler's house under mysterious circumstances AND she is toting along a beautiful baby boy... that just happens to be Tyler's. Oh yes, you need to know what the heck is going on. I will be the first to admit that I am not a fan of books about secret pregnancies but Mine to Hold is so much more than that story line. There is drama, action, angst, mystery and of course, hot steamy romance.

One of the many things I loved about Mine to Hold is that Shayla Black answers questions the reader has through the heroine, Delaney. She makes Delaney pose these questions herself.
I'll give you an example.
Delaney needs Tyler to watch over their baby boy, Seth. Tyler's house is full of company when she arrives. The visitors just happen to be each of the previous couples. *squee* Delaney picks up on the fact that a few of the couples have an alternative lifestyle and questions whether or not Seth should be left near people who freely discuss and use floggers and whips.

Mine to Hold by Shayla Black
Contemporary Romance -June 5th, 2012
4 ½ stars

Delaney Catalano's life became difficult when her husband, Eric was wheelchair bound in the line of duty. But on one fateful day, Eric asks her to have sex with his partner, Tyler Murphy! (Eric wants to watch her having sex since he cannot give it to her.) Unexpectedly, Del finds raw passion in Tyler's arms that she never found in her husband's and Eric is jealous and angry. When Del finds herself pregnant it the last straw to her now shaky marriage. Del finds her marriage ending in a nasty divorce and eventually pursuing a career as a journalist. But trouble lurks as the dangerous expose she is writing puts her in harms way. In desperation she searches for Tyler to help her.

Tyler Murphy is the love'em and leave'em type. But he secretly carries a torch for his ex-partner's wife. He is shocked when years later Del shows up at his doorstep with a young boy named Seth. And Seth that look exactly like him! Next Del outrageously asks Tyler to take care of Seth while she seeks to run from a powerful enemy who wants to keep her quiet. But Tyler wants answers and he won't take, `No.' He decides that he will protect and care for Del even if he has to seduce her to do so. And watch out Del, because Tyler has had years on honing his skills!

Mine to Hold is hot, Hot, HOT! Fans of Shalya Black will not be disappointed as the author seamlessly mixes sizzling passion and potent suspense. At first, I wasn't sure if I could like a seemingly idle playboy and a woman who could cheat on her husband (even if the husband encouraged it). I wondered how the lies between the main characters could create a healthy relationship.
