Not if he can help it. 

But Adrian Greene doesn't have a choice, as he's not the kind of man to bail on his best friend when she needs him. Having Ethan at the same party is his only consolation until a mistletoe-induced kiss with Shelli heats his blood, sends his fantasies rioting and hardens his…body. 

And when Ethan expresses the same interest in Shelli? Things get a helluva lot more interesting. 

Wicked shenanigans, seduction maneuvers and naked times ensue as the men think up of creative ways to tempt their best friend into something more…all without destroying their friendship. 

Tempting their best friend has never been so sweet…or delicious.

Author Interview with Sienna Matthews

  • Brief introduction? In 3 sentences or less, tell me about yourself.

Hi, I'm Sienna Matthews, co-author with Madison Blake in Tempting Their Best Friend. I'm a bespectacled, mild-mannered office employee by day with hopes of one day quitting the day job and writing full time. I'm one of those who often complain about not having enough hours in a day to do everything I want, and I always thought I could be best served with 48-hour days.

  • What genre do you write and why?

I write erotic romance, because I love the freedom that the genre brings in terms of sexual exploration. For example, in my upcoming book, Lust on Camera, a married couple (Brent and Lindsey) explores bringing in a third person (the husband's best friend Rory) into the relationship. How would this affect their relationship, especially since Lindsey has had a crush on Rory since the beginning? For Rory, what does it mean to lust after his best friend's wife…and his best friend? How would this impact his friendship with Brent?

And, you know, in psychology, they say within each of us is the "id", which operates on the pleasure principle. I'm just letting the id in me out to play.

  • Is writing your day job? If not, what else do you do?

I wish! In my day job, I'm a credit analyst in a bank, poring over boring numbers and writing credit reports for loan application approvals. You can see now why I'd need the creativity that writing brings.

  • Any hobbies?

You mean aside from reading? That already takes most of my time. Well, if you insist, it would be cooking. To expand on the number recipes in my mental menu, I'm currently trying to learn how to bake.

  • What is your least favorite part of the writing and publishing process?

Editing is a nightmare, and I don't know anything about marketing. I've since hired Book Unleashed as my publicist to help me out on the marketing front, and they're doing a great job so far. For editing though, I guess I'm stuck with it. LOL Can't very well hand it off to someone else.

  • Do you use an outline or just jump right in?

I want to be one of those authors who write by the seat of their pants--sounds more exciting that way. Sadly though, I'm one of those people who need an outline to guide my writing. However, it's not a rigid outline. I usually only have the bare bones of the story, allowing me plenty of room to maneuver and navigate and unleash my creativity.

  • Do you ever dream or daydream about your characters?

Always! I can't write unless I hear them talking in my head. Sounds weird, I know, but they aren't alive to me otherwise. It's only when they talk that they come alive for me, and that's when I know it's time to write their story.

  • What is your next project, after this?

The next book in the series is titled Lust on Camera, as I'd mentioned earlier. It's due to be published in October or November. I'm also currently developing a series of books of erotic fairy tales. These are fairy tales you've never read before--erotic or otherwise!

Madison Blake is a firm believer in love and happy endings. That’s why she loves stories wherein the characters go through adversities to emerge victorious in the end. Holding a day job means that she doesn’t get much time to write, so Madison tries to cram her free time with as much writing as she can. Even so, she would make time to read her favorite genre (romance), especially when she’s experiencing writer’s block. She loves to read and write about strong heroines, and she’s on the eternal quest for the powerful, attractive, mysterious, yummy hero, the kind of man who’ll make you sigh and say, “He’s the one.” 

Sienna Matthews is a bespectacled, mild-mannered office employee by day and turns into a mad, raving writer at night and during weekends. The only thing that can be heard from her are the tap, tap, tap of her keyboard. She doesn't need food or sleep as she follows the calling of her muse.
