Desire Unleashed 
Layne Macadam, welcome
to Romance Lives Forever. We’re excited to interview your character, Shane Jackson
aka Ice, from the book, Desire Unleashed.
Genre: Contemporary
Publisher: Liquid
Silver Books
Cover artist: Lyn
A Taylor
Length: 105K words
Heat rating: Spicy
Tagline: Find out what happens
when a career-driven, cocky Navy SEAL meets an old-fashioned good girl looking for
love in all the wrong places. Intrigue, kidnapping, and danger await you in this
explosive tale of desire unleashed.
When schoolteacher Kathy Bellamy moved from Louisiana
to Coronado, she
didn’t expect her secret dream, or her worst nightmare, to become a reality.
Confirmed bachelor
and relationship cynic, Shane Jackson has no room in his life for a permanent woman.
Temporary liaisons are all he is up for. Cocky and self-assured, he believes he
can pick a like-minded player at a glance. So when he discovers Kathy is the complete
antithesis of what he believed her to be, he is thrown into a tailspin. Before long,
and way out of his comfort zone, he finds himself knee deep in a relationship he
can’t quite seem to end.
Kathy longs for a fairytale romance, an old-fashioned girl saving herself
for the right guy. But, after one date with Navy SEAL Shane Jackson, she trashes
her values and willingly tumbles into the sack without a thought for the consequences.
Now, Kathy’s love life will soon become the catalyst of a nightmare. When she throws
caution to the wind and acts out of character, her actions are seen as a betrayal
by her stalker, a betrayal that demands retribution in blood. Abducted at knifepoint
and taken to a secret location, it’s up to Shane, the ultimate predator, to find
and rescue her before it’s too late!

Interview with Shane Jackson

Tell us about yourself.
Up until recently I was a Navy SEAL, that’s where I got the name Ice, but
after getting wounded in Cambodia,
I was medically retired from fieldwork. Now I co-own a private security business
with my old SEAL team. The guys and me will take on any job *grins* as long as it’s
Tell us about Kathy
What can I say? The moment I laid eyes on her I was smitten. My wife is one
of those rare creatures who is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.
She’s feisty when the situation calls for it, and she’s as sexy as hell! She opened
my eyes and made me see there was more to life than work, and she taught me to trust
again. I adore her.
What do you think
is your strongest point?
Loyalty. I will hang in there till the end, no matter what, and I will fight
for what I believe in.
What would Kathy
say is your strongest point?
Well, I think she would probably say my stamina. LOL! Nah, seriously, she
calls me her rock. It’s funny hearing her say that because I have always thought
of her as my rock, my anchor.
What was it like where you grew up?
I had a rough childhood. I don’t talk about it much, but my mother’s parents
disowned her when they learned I was on the way. Long story short, she ended up
on the street and died young. I was in and out of foster care until I was about
fourteen when a Marine and his wife took me in and turned my life around. They were
amazing and kind, and I will always be grateful for their love and support.
What do you wish
was different about your life?
My life is perfect now, but if I could change one thing it would be that I
discovered the identity of Kathy’s stalker before he got to her. I give thanks every
day that Frosty, and I arrived when we did, thirty minutes later and we would have
been too late. Only for Frosty, I would have finished that sucker when I had the

About the Author

I live with my husband, two dogs and a cat on the beautiful east
coast of Australia.
I have a full-time job with a degree in history. I’ve always been an avid reader,
and I love a happy ending, so writing romance seemed a natural progression for me.
But as I sat at my computer staring at a blank screen it all seemed rather daunting.
Once I started tapping on the keys though, the words kept flowing and before I knew
it I had written my first book.
Layne Macadam 
I write contemporary romance and sci-fi. I am currently working
on Desire Denied book 2 in the Desire Series. I have ideas for an historical romance
in the future, and with thoughts of a wolf shifter germinating in my head a paranormal
romance is not outside the realms of possibility either.
When I’m not writing you might find me in the kitchen creating
culinary delights, but of course some dishes work out better than others!
I guess my love of history has fueled my other passion which
is travel. I have been fortunate enough to have seen lots of this wonderful world
we live in and on my web page you can share some of my experiences and pictures.

Books Coming Soon

Desire Denied, Book 2 in the Desire Series
