August 19, 2012

Okay, well, things kind of snowballed over the past few weeks and I forgot to add the fact that Training Tessa made the New York Times and USA Today Best-seller lists. 

Then this morning, my Nude Spanish Guitarist found me in the Huffington Post:

July 17, 2012

Training Tessa is now a #1 Bestseller in Amazon Erotica. It joins His Rules in that place of honor. With over 750,000 books on Amazon, I never, ever thought I could accomplish that twice.

Thanks so much to all of you who've read the story, requested future book notifications, friended or liked me on Facebook, followed me on Twitter, and sent nice emails. I appreciate your encouragement more than you know!

July 7, 2012

As of today, Training Tessa has made the Kindle Top 100 list (currently at #85)! And it's #5 in erotica!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my editor Jennifer Bray Weber, pre-readers/critiquers Suzan Harden (paranormal author), and erotica romance authors Debra Glass  and Onne Andrews . You are brilliant and insightful and I appreciate you more than I can say!

June 29, 2012

Thanks Carnation!

June 17, 2011

Too Innocent 2: Deceived and Devoured is up on Amazon! I'm waiting for it to appear on B&N and Smashwords.

May 15, 2011

The first story in my new short story series is up. Too Innocent: Tied for Two is available at Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. I'm doing this in serial format as I did the "His Rules" series, except that these stories are a bit longer. These are heavy on the BDSM.

Inhibited Tanya Marin starts out somewhat innocent in Tied for Two, but learns many sexual lessons in Too Innocent: Deceived and Devoured, and Too Innocent: Bought and Bound, which culminates in a love story with a very tortured hero who is only using Tanya to satisfy his anger at the woman who betrayed him, until things change...

I hope you enjoy!

April 17, 2011

Taken By the Force, my latest humorous erotic romance (novella length) is now available on Kindle and Nook. It will also pop up on Smashwords in the next couple of days. I hearby swear that I will not use "Taken" in the name of anymore books...this year. I'm entering a twelve-step program. I hope you enjoy!

March 19, 2011

Well, I didn't think it could be any better than being #1 on the Kindle erotica best-seller's list....

Until my His Rules series became #1, 2, & 3 on the Kindle erotica best-seller's list! Had to add a screen shot to my blog, of course!

March 9, 2011

#1 in erotica on Amazon. I feel like I'm being punked!

But it's there. I've even taken a screenshot and put it on my blog. As I write this, His Rules: Taken By Surprise is Number One in Erotica on Amazon! All 3 of the "His Rules" stories are on the Top 20 Erotica list right now. Somebody pinch me!

Now how about a little spanking?

March 1, 2011

FULL FRONTAL FANTASY is now available on Amazon and B&N! (This book contains bdsm elements and one very hot, very dominating dude.)

February 23, 2011

A five, count 'em FIVE CHERRY review from Whipped Cream Revews for Captain's Price. Thanks so much Honeysuckle!

"Ms. Sinclair’s writing is so vivid it felt deliciously voyeuristic to be taken along for the lessons."--Honeysuckle

October 24, 2010

The reviews keep rolling in! Captain's Price is now my most reviewed book ever and they've all been wonderful. Who'd have thought my first try at a historical would go this well? Anyway, many thanks to Val of Joyfully Reviewed and Annette of RomFan for such fabulous reviews!

October 9, 2010

I'm thrilled to say that Instructing Emily got a 5 Cherry review from Whipped Cream Reviews.

July 5, 2010


I just saw a wonderful review at Whipped Cream Romance Reviews for my story Hard on Miss Hardin, which takes place at Edward J. Kumm Universtiy (along with Instructing Emily and Checking Out Audrey). You can also buy the books through their site by using the "publisher," "Kindle," or "B&N digital" links.

July 1, 2010

Ellora's Cave has contracted to publish my first historical. It's called Captain's Price and my editor and alpha readers have fallen in love with Drew, who finds Julianna Burton stowing away on his ship. He decides she must stay in his cabin for protection, but who will protect her from the raging passion he feels for her? He finds himself making a lewd bargain for her passage, demanding "entertainment" from her that the normally controlled captain would never dream of asking of a well-bred young woman. Yet, he did. Has he lost his iron will? And can he really keep the bargain to leave her the one thing most important to her, or will the Captain's Price become more than either of them can afford to lose?

May 25, 2010

Night Owl Reviews has chosen Instructing Emily as a "Top Pick"!

"This is the first story of Lyla Sinclair’s that I have read but it’s sure not to be the last. The way she is able to bring out emotion is exemplary. I can’t wait to see what she has coming out next." --Terri, Night Owl Reviews (Read full review.)

May 24, 2010

Instructing Emily is on Kindle! You can also go there through my book page, where there are descriptions and excerpts of all my stories.

May 14, 2010

Instructing Emily is out!

Graduate student Emily Brooks should be careful what she wishes for because hot Professor Mark Kendall is about to teach her more than she ever imagined!

I.E. cover model Jimmy Thomas has come by my blog today to help celebrate the release and give me the scoop on what it's like to be an international model and martial arts trainer and he's sent me some new photos! Check it out!

May 2, 2010

Instructing Emily is scheduled for release May 14, 2010!

Graduate student Emily Brooks has been "hot for teacher" for years, but when she finally gets her chance, Professor Mark Kendall may be more than she can handle.

This is the third of my "Kumm College" stories. At Edward J. Kumm University it's not the undergrads who are having all the fun. Find out what goes on "behind the desk" between the professors, grad students and even the librarian when you read Hard on Miss Hardin, Checking Out Audrey, and Instructing Emily. Excerpts available on this site.

February 26, 2010

Ellora’s Cavemen: Flavors of Ecstasy 3 just got a 5 out of 5 heart rating from The Romance Studio! My story "The Johnson Obsession" is in this anthology.

"In the final story Vivian's sex obsession, her neighbor delivers on all her fantasies in "The Johnson Obsession" This is a light BDSM story which delivers not just great sex but a great story. The element of surprise makes this story very exciting." ---Michele, The Romance Studio

January 16, 2010

"Checking Out Audrey" was named a "Blue Ribbon" read by Romance Junkies. Here's the review:

"I can sum this quick, steamy read up in three words. Hot! Hot! Hot! Ms. Sinclair doesn’t disappoint as she leads you into what is supposed to be the dull life of Audrey, but it turns out to be anything but. Max is everything any woman can want in a Latin lover. This is one of the best short stories I have ever read. It was everything that I expected and more.

Ms Sinclair has done a great job of creating an erotic, sensual story that will entice you and leave you breathless and having to fan yourself. Even in a short length read Ms. Sinclair was able to give a great amount of back story on each character to show you how they arrived to the point they were at. CHECKING OUT AUDREY will leave a smile on your face when it is over. This is a saucy read that you won’t want to put away, and even when you do, it will always be on your mind. CHECKING OUT AUDREY is a must read."

December 22, 2009

I'm very excited that my first Ellora's Cave release, “Hard on Miss Hardin”, has made it to Amazon Kindle! I love my Kindle, and the people at E.C. are working hard to get their entire backlist up at Amazon. I hope to see my other stories up soon.

December 15, 2009

"Checking Out Audrey" was reviewed by Night Owl Reviews and received 4.5/5 stars!

"The storyline is intriguing, exciting and smoking hot... I am excited to recommend this book to others."

November 13, 2009

Night Owl Reviews just gave Ellora's Cavemen: Flavors of Ecstasy vol. 3 a 4.75 out of 5 stars! Read it here.

My story in this anthology is called "The Johnson Obsession" and here's what Night Owl had to say about it: "so hot you will need a fan or an ice cube to cool off with while reading this story. The author has penned a wonderful told tale that has vivid imagery."

September 23, 2009

Seriously Reviewed had some fabulous things to say about "Checking Out Audrey".

Here are some highlights:

"Bangin' love scenes, studly men and hey! Did you see that cover? HOLY COW!!!! It rocks!"

"Ms Sinclair has done a wonderful job creating an erotic, sensual, tactile tale that will tantalize your senses and leave your legs weak and other parts of get the idea :) I enjoy a good quickie that can really get your blood pumping, give it to you just the way you want it and leave you smiling when it's over :) I hope you enjoy it as much as I did."

"Checking Out Audrey", my second book set at Edward J. Kumm University is now available. Audrey is a shy librarian with an unusual hobby that gets her into a compromising--yet hot--position!

August 12, 2009

I have a relase date for "Checking Out Audrey"--the librarian with an usual hobby that gets her into a compromising, yet hot, position. It's scheduled for September 4, 2009. Just around the corner!

August 8, 2009

Brand new excerpt for "Checking Out Audrey" has been posted here. Check it out!

August 1, 2009

I'm excited that my story “Hard on Miss Hardin” got a thumbs up from Fallen Angel Reviews.

"Hard on Miss Hardin is an erotic novella that takes you on a ride of forbidden lust. Lyla Sinclair has written a story that focuses on the two main characters and the sexual discovery of an older woman and younger man. Written in first person and from the heroine’s point of view, Ms. Sinclair does a great job of disclosing the hero Jarrett personality, as an equally important aspect of the novel. The sex scenes are hot and well written. This is a great short read, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ms. Sinclair’s work." -- Sandie, Fallen Angel Reviews

July 9, 2009

I'm getting some great reader response for “Hard on Miss Hardin”.

"This is an Ellora’s Cave Exotika story – a line of erotica that does not claim to conform to romance norms (monogamous relationships, HEA). In this story, Miss Hardin finds herself at the mercy of a former student who she might have been rather hard on. This was an excellent short story – one which was rather steamy!" -- Jennifer,

June 27, 2009

I've been interviewed by Fran Lee from the Examiner!

June 26, 2009

Ellora's Cave has accepted another story. "Checking out Audrey" is the story of a shy librarian with an unusual hobby that gets her into a compromising (yet hot) position.

June 7, 2009

Hi! Welcome to the site of Lyla Sinclair, author of erotica and erotic romance.

My first story “Hard on Miss Hardin” is available for download in June. I call Professor Katherine Hardin my “accidental cougar.” This one is an Ellora’s Cave EXOTIKA, which means it’s filled with naughty, sexy fun.

I’m also honored that my erotic romance “The Johnson Obsession” has been chosen for Ellora’s Cavemen: Flavors of Ecstasy 3, part of the on-going anthology series, featuring erotic romance from six different authors. The Cavemen anthologies are downloadable and available in paperback. “Vivian” from “The Johnson Obsession” can give you one BIG reason you shouldn’t be annoyed when your mail gets misdirected.

I’ve also just had a third story accepted by Ellora’s Cave and I’ll give you more news on that one soon. Be sure to read the excerpts on this site and contact me if you want to receive reminders when my new stories are available.

I’d love to get questions and comments from you, and meet you on Facebook.

Thanks for checking me out!
