Saturday Storyteller Interview: Lacey Silks

Please welcome Lacey to our blog today. She's sharing her new release and telling us what she finds sexy!
What’s your name and where do you come from?
My name is Lacey Silks. I’m having the urge to reply that I come from Earth, but I’m guessing I wouldn’t be the first one ;) I actually live in a small town of Cambridge, Ontario and I find it’s the perfect place to raise our kids. We know all our neighbours and their kids on a first name basis and have an annual BBQ party in August. I don’t think I will ever move from here.
Tell us a bit about your latest release.
Layers Deep is book one in the Layers Trilogy. It steamed from a prequel which is already available “Dazzled by Silver”. Allie Green is a rookie cop who is hired by Tristan Cross (owner of top notch investigations and securities firm) to rescue a kidnapped ‘friend’. Sparks fly the moment she meets him and Allie has a difficult time keeping their relationship professional. Both have secrets and ghosts from the past haunting them, but they also have more in common than they’d thought. Allie and Tristan mesh very well together and realize how much they need each other very quickly.
How do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man?
I search through a lot of internet photos. Of course they always have to be pretty fit and comfortable with their bodies, but I also like to add little imperfections that make them sexier. Like Tristan for example, he has a scar on his upper lip that lifts when he grins or smiles. I find that very attractive.
Do you have a favourite character from your books? Why are they your favourite?
From the Layers Trilogy, Tristan’s little sister stole my heart. Her character was so easy to write. I knew exactly who she was: a quirky, smart and adorable little teen. Her mouth never shuts and she speaks her mind. I adore her and wish she was my little sister.
What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
I’d have to say it was my husband who proposed in the same cafe where we went on our first date. It was a big surprise because we’d revisited the place a few times a year, so I didn’t suspect it.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
As cliché as that sounds, I read. I love being taken into a different world and lose myself in someone else’s life.
What’s your greatest weakness?
Chocolate and fresh pastries. I wouldn’t sell my first born for them, but having that sweetness melt on my tongue or the fresh dough fill me comes pretty close to being orgasmic.
Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination?
Some has to be from experience. Anything you write from your own life just sounds so much more believable and it’s much easier to write. Sometimes I actually have to get my hubby to try out a position to see if it actually works and to know where all the limbs go. I’ve had a situation where I argued with my editor whether something works. She tried it and couldn’t do it. I tried it and I could.  I had to change the scene around to make sure my readers wouldn’t say “That’s impossible”.
What’s your idea of a perfect romantic evening?
It would have to be at home, no kids, dinner and a movie with hubby and maybe a bubble bath afterwards. I love spending quiet quality time at home, laughing and losing ourselves in a conversation about anything.
Tell us something that might surprise our readers.

I’m more prudish in life than many people think. While I love beautiful lingerie I save it for special nights. Otherwise I sleep in a t-shirt.
He needs her to save a friend.
She needs him to plan her revenge.
Their pasts scar them Layers Deep.
Their passion distracts them...
...and distractions can be fatal.

Tristan Cross is battling emotional demons from the past. He lives in a world where trust is earned, loyalties are tested, and love is impossible. That is, until he meets Allie Green. She’s the only woman who can help him find a kidnapped friend and to top it off, she captivates him. All he has to do now is persuade her to work for Cross Enterprises, his top investigations firm.

Allie Green is a rookie cop seeking revenge and she’s willing to sell her soul to get it. With an opportunity to use Tristan Cross's resources Allie calculates her time for payback. As vengeance boils her blood she can’t keep her mind off her new boss and Allie finds it difficult to keep her employment professional. With the mouth watering Tristan Cross distracting her, she struggles to prioritize an undercover job she’s been assigned and her hunger for revenge.

And when you’re ready to give up your life to save someone else, distractions can be fatal.
Note: This book is the first part of a Trilogy that is designed to be read in order. Tristan and Allie will get their happy ending but not until book 2. This book contains a cliff hanger ending you will not expect. A prequel to the series which can be read alone is Dazzled by Silver.

Warning: This title contains erotic situations, and graphic language. Intended for adult audience 18+.
