Surrender to Me

A ménage a trois becomes a dangerous obsession.

A Navy SEAL accepts a hot proposition: share a buddy's girlfriend and fulfill her dream of a ménage. But after meeting Kata he needs more than one night. And he wants her all to himself-a guilty secret that becomes a dangerous fantasy.

A secret fantasy.
Hunter had everything until a bullet put his career as a Navy SEAL on hold. Restless and in need of distraction, he accepts an intriguing proposition. Restless and uncertain about his future, he accepts an intriguing proposition: share an acquaintance's girlfriend and fulfill her fantasy of a ménage. It should have been just a night of sexual adventure between three consenting adults. But Kata is like no other girl Hunter has ever met. By turns audacious and sexy, then vulnerable and aloof, she's a heartbreaker he's determined to master. But he needs more than one night. And he wants to do it alone.
An uncontrollable obsession.
Kata never expected to leave her comfortable relationship and explore something so dangerously forbidden with a stranger. Hard as she tries to resist, the guilty pleasure overwhelms her, and she surrenders herself, inch by inch, to the hardcore man who wants her for himself. Consumed by blazing desire, they're soon threatened by the shadows of the past. And now to keep Kata safe, Hunter makes her a bold proposition of his own. Saying yes will destroy her heart. But saying no could cost Kata her life.

SURRENDER TO ME has debuted on the New York Times trade fiction bestseller list, the Neilsen Bookscan romance bestseller list, the Barnes & Noble trade fiction list, the Borders romance trade bestseller list and topped the Barnes & Noble trade romance bestseller list.


The first thing Hunter Edgington thought when he saw the laughing brunette across the crowded hotel suite, champagne in hand, was that he couldn’t wait to fuck her.
His next thought was that it was a damn shame the curvaceous bombshell belonged to former boot camp buddy, Ben.
“Does she know?”
Ben leaned against the wall and took the last swig of beer from his bottle, then yelled over the deafening party tunes. “Nope. Big surprise. She wanted to come to Vegas for her birthday and have her fantasy fulfilled. After the shit she’s been through lately, when she requested…” He let loose a beer belch, tossing his brown hair from his unfocused eyes. “I delivered.”
Maybe, but Hunter suspected Ben hadn’t spilled the whole story. He’d spent the last half-dozen years as a Navy SEAL and was still alive because he listened to his gut. “You’re okay with this?”
“Yeah!” Ben slurred. “Fuck, she’s hot in bed. Passionate. All that Latina blood.” He leaned in and grinned. “She’s a screamer and scratcher.”
Ben’s words created a visual that had Hunter stone hard: himself with her, naked, slick with sweat. Her fuck-me mouth gasping his name. Her red manicured nails digging into his shoulders as he nuzzled her lush breasts. While pounding her swollen pussy relentlessly deep with his cock.
He wanted that—and would do whatever necessary to make it happen.
As if the sensing his stare, the gorgeous woman looked up. Their stares locked. Oh, yeah. She exuded sex appeal with all the subtlety of a flashing red light.
Instinct jabbed his gut with a full-throttle attraction that raced through his veins. Yes, she was beautiful. Tangling his hands in her dark silk hair as he claimed her mouth and body—all while cuffing her helplessly to his bed—would be fucking incredible. Even twenty feet apart, they generated combustible heat that singed him down to his balls. It was beyond chemistry. At thirty-two, Hunter knew the difference. He didn’t merely want her; he wanted to unravel her, figure her out, possess her completely.
Hazel, mossy green laced with deep brown. Stunning against her hint-of-olive complexion. Another shock of awareness blasted through him. The wide smile fell slowly from her lips. She held his stare, drew in a trembling breath. Her pulse fluttered at her neck. Her little pink tongue peeked out, swiping across her lips to lick them.
She felt the heat between them. Good. Because this goddamn searing lust made him wonder if he could ever sate his hunger for her, much less in a single night.
“What’s her name?” He had to know, ached to.
“Kata.” Ben slurred. “Short for Katalina, but she hates it. I call her that when she pisses me off, but then she calls me Benjamin and—”
“Got it.” Hunter didn’t need to know the ins and outs of Ben and Kata’s relationship. He already envied the bastard like mad. “Boundaries?”
“Nah, man. Whatever she wants.”
Idly, Hunter wondered if Ben realized that, without limits, he could be really fucking lethal. Requesting leave from his team after being shot, Hunter had nothing more to do for a week than rehab his shoulder and devote himself to seducing Kata.
And why warn the competition? Hunter suspected he’d lose a buddy over this girl. Poaching wasn’t his style, but for her, he’d bend the rules because Hunter would be more than happy to be the man scratching Kata’s itch from now on.
So, to get your chance at that book, answer this question:

If you had to be trapped on a desert island with ONE Shayla Black character-who would you chose and why?

Hunter of course! He's the Alpha's Alpha. You don't get much more dominant than Hunter. What woman wouldn't want a man that focused and self-assured? He's hit as hell.

flchen1 said...

Duke :) But really, choose just one?? *sigh*

Celtie said...

Wow could you have come up with a tougher question !! I love them all but if I had to choose it would be .... Jack oh let me count the ways I love him!!! So strong and caring and willing to do what it takes to keep the woman he loves safe!! I would so let him tie me up anytime.


Claudia said...

I would love to be on an island with any of the guys from the Wicked Lovers series. But I would love to be on an island with Jack the most. When I think of Shayla Black, Wicked Ties is the first book that pops into my head.

Chris said...

I think it would have to be Luc hands down. He's got the look and he's a chef. Just my kind of guy!

Amy S. said...

It would have to be Jack! Yum

Brenda said...

I haven't read Shayla's books - I know! LOL But after reading the excerpt, Surrender to Me is definitely on my TBR list now. Good luck everyone in the contest.

joder said...

Caden MacTavish is someone I could see spending lots more time with. And a desert island means few clothes so woo-hoo.

Luc, omg Luc... *sighs* And I already have the book ( two copies actually ) just wanted to say I love the series! Can't wait for more!


elaing8 said...

I haven't read any of Shayla's books yet.But from reading that excerpt I'd say Hunter.He seems smoking hot.

Julia Broadbooks said...

Hunter. I haven't even read the book and I have a little crush on him.

Cathy M said...

Well, Luc from Delicious would be perfect. Totally off the charts sexy, good with his hands,lol, and the man can cook!

Colleen said...

Just one!?! I want more... what better way to get to know them... okay if I have to choose one I will say Marrok... loved the way his story pulled me in!

Tiss said...

I;m thinking that Hunter is my man. Sounds like just the man I need.

MichelleKCanada said...

I would have to check to see what I haven't read of Shayla Black's because I luv her books.


WickedLilPixie said...

Jack & I would fight all you ladies for him! lol


Jennifer Mathis said...

i havent read any so i'm not sure :(

Savonna said...

Ack... this is almost impossible to answer!! I'd want Ice or Shock or Lucan from the Doomsday Brethren. Or, Luc or Logan or Tyler from the Wicked Lovers. They are varying degrees of wounded souls, but very capable of keeping me safe and loved!!

Patricia said...

Jack of course but Hunter sounds like a close 2nd.

CrystalGB said...

Jack. He is smoking hot. :)

Pommawolf Emeraldwolfeyes said...

It would be of course Hunter. All alpha as far as I'm concerned.!
