I am very pleased to have UK, award-winning, multi-published author Lily Harlem here today. Her book In Expert Hands is a very well-written contemporary erotic romance.
Welcome, Lily. I’m very excited to have you here. Tell us about you as an author
I’ve been writing for about seven years now. I studied creative writing with Cardiff University, wrote in lots of genres to start with but then had a go at erotic romance for an online competition at LoveHoney. I was thrilled to win first place so I always say the erotic romance genre found me! I now have over 70 published works, about 30 of them are novels. I write MF, MM, and ménage a trois. I love sport romance, I’ve dabbled with paranormal but generally I write contemporary erotica and nearly always add a sprinkle of kink. I also write with Natalie Dae under the pen name Harlem Dae, my work with Natalie tends to be much darker BDSM.
What do like the most about being an author?
Being able to let my imagination run riot. Also being able to work whenever the mood takes me, whether that’s first thing in the morning or the middle of the night.
Are there any similarities between you and any of your characters?
I often have characters with a medical background or plots that have a medical twist – Breathe You In, Confessions of a Naughty Night Nurse, Dark Warrior to name a few, because before I started writing I worked as a trauma nurse in London. I adore Katie in Breathe You In (due out next month but available for early download now from the publisher https://www.totallybound.com/breathe-you-in ) She’s had a really tough time and is a young widow, but life soon gets brighter when she meets hunky Ruben Strong – the trouble is she’s keeping a secret from him, a big secret that is all to easy to relate to.

How much time do you spend on writing?
I write full time to pay the bills so it takes up the majority of my week. When I’m not writing I like to walk on the beach with my dogs, horse-ride and paint. I’m also pretty keen on spending time with Mr Harlem!
Is there anything you’d like to share with the readers?

Thank you for inviting me today.
Thanks for visiting with us today. And here is a little bit about In Expert Hands.
Blurb: Imogen White has it all—a high-flying career, a prestigious London home and friends she knows will fight her corner. She’s going up, and she’s in control, she’s also got the hots for one very important, very sexy client.
Kane Ward is a self-made billionaire whose determination to be the best of the best has left him alone. He has everything money can buy, yachts, jets, and villas in all four corners of the globe, but even he can’t buy time to suit his needs.
And his needs are very specific, his desires a particular shade of kink and his tastes anything but vanilla. So when he sets his sights on Imogen it’s a given that things are going to get dark, that pleasure will be laced with pain and determining his success will be measured by her blushes and gasps and cries of delight. But Imogen doesn’t need to worry, she’s in expert hands and her every fantasy is about to come true—and then some she’d never imagined even in her wildest dreams.
