Elle D. Hayes - Guest Blog

Help me welcome erotic romance author, Elle D. Hayes.
 I decided to have a little fun with Elle, so I gave her a fill-in-the-blank interview. Elle provided some great insight into who she is via her answers.
 See what you think - 

I'd mud-wrestle a Chihuahua to get a slice of pizza from NYC.  I’m a native NY’er and there’s nothing better than a hot slice.
2. I'm going camping. I must pack my sanity since I don’t camp.  There will need to be lots of allergy meds and alcohol involved. 
3. If I had to leave Earth in an hour, and I could only take one thing with me (besides my family), I'd take my journal with its matching pen (since they match I’m counting them as one item. It’s a girl thing).  Imagine the stories I’ll be able to tell about that adventure.
4. When they make a movie about my life, I want Regina King to play me.  She is fierce!
5. You must sacrifice one human to the man-eating plant recently discovered in the Amazon. I'd sacrifice Rush Limbaugh because bullsh*t makes great fertilizer.
6. I'd eat a Brussels sprout sandwich if it would make me more productive. There just aren’t enough hours in my days.
7. I've never told anyone about the times I skipped school to hang with an older musician I’d met.  It was high school and my mom would have killed me (and him).
8. If I was lost in a strange city, I'd call my daughter to help me.  She’d text me directions to the nearest five-star hotel in less than five minutes while laughing at my predicament.
9. If I was going to run away from home, I'd go to Paris, France!!!  I’ve always wanted to go there and it’s a hop, skip and a jump away from a few other European destinations I’d like to see.  Not to mention FASHION WEEK!
10.I remember when I didn’t need a cell phone to get through my day.  Now I get all kinds of stressed out when I forget my phone at home.
11.Great shoes are a girl's best friend.
12.If I could be a heroine from a book, I have no idea which one I’d be, because there are just too many that I really love. I do know she’d be able to shoot straight and kick ass.
13.I should have been born in the next century.  I’d like to think I’m ahead of my time.
14.The worst movie I ever saw was Soul Plane.  That shouldn’t need any explanation.
15.Quick! Word association. Don't think, just put down the first word that comes to mind.

Horse - Cowboy
Snow – NO!
Chocolate - Heaven
Coffee - Tea
Paint - Artist
Fire - Ice
Sexy - Clooney

Blurb - 
Tonia Lassiter thought she’d found the man of her dreams. Sure, they came from two different backgrounds, but who cares? The heart wants what it wants. But what happens if her dream guy’s heart doesn’t want the same thing? 

Jayson James was a cop first and foremost. A member of an elite SWAT team he works on a daily basis to save lives. Driven by the painful memories of a time when violence touched him personally, he doesn’t do relationships. So, why is he having such a hard time walking away from the sexiest Assistant DA he’s ever laid eyes on? 

Can these two star-crossed lovers find their happily ever after before tragedy strikes? They’ll have to learn to Negotiate Love.

Excerpt - 

Just thinking about her brought images of her smooth milk chocolate skin and sparkling brown eyes to mind. His hand itched to feel her hair clutched in his fist as he took her from behind. He loved the feel of the braid and twists she always wore. And that ass! His head throbbed at the thought of another man touching her.

He dropped his bag on the ground next to the wall and opened it to dig around for his gloves. Once he had them on he stood and began working the bag. He’d worked up a really good sweat when Mace joined him.

“Hey,” Mace said as he moved to stand behind the bag and hold it steady.
“Hey,” Jay replied before resuming his workout.
“I’m willing to bet that this poor innocent bag didn’t do anything to you, so you wanna tell me who it is you’re really beating the hell out of right now?”

Jay didn’t answer at first, but then he dropped his fists and sighed. “Myself,” he finally admitted.

“Okay. Wanna talk about it?”
“Not really.”
“Can I take a stab at it?”
“Can I stop you?” Jay snapped. Then added, “It won’t do any good. You don’t have a clue how much I’ve screwed up.”

“Maybe not, but I’m willing to bet three months pay it all revolves around one sexy ADA you’ve been pretending to not give a damn about.”

“How the hell did you pick up on that?” Jay questioned angrily.
“Come on, man. You two can’t stop watching each other whenever you’re in the same room. And you almost ripped Gunnar a new one when he made that comment about her ass a few months back.”

Jay clenched his jaw at the memory. Gunnar Stephensen was a fellow SWAT officer and a world class womanizer. Had it not been for the intervention of the rest of the team, he would have taken the man’s head off when he wondered aloud what it would be like to hold Tonia’s hips and watch her ass while fucking her from behind. Jay groaned out loud when he realized how much that show of possessiveness must have told his teammates.
