"Kiss me." She trembled.
If she didn't want the contact why had she requested it? I halted. "Are you sure?"
I planted a light peck on her cheek. The way we always did.
"A lover's kiss," she said.
Being referred to as her lover made me hard. I leaned in. "Are you certain?"
"Yes." Her eyes widened, she took hold of my blazer and pulled me closer.
Slowing my movement toward her, I cupped her neck with my fingers, and used my thumb beneath her jaw to angle her head upward. She stared into my eyes, as though attempting to read me. As I lowered my mouth to hers, I wrapped my other arm behind her waist and drew her flush to me.
She gasped.

Leila DeSint was born in a small town on the east coast of Canada. Her nomadic childhood gave her the ability to ebb and flow with the seasons, people and places she lived in. Most often, she could be found in a corner with a pencil and notepad using words to recreate the dark world around her. Many summers of her youth were spent on the shores of her birthplace collecting seashells, but she alway...s returned them for the next wanderer that happened by.

The pencil and notepad have been traded for a computer, but the words never stop flowing, nor did her interest in conjuring glimpses of the world as she perceived it. The corner is now a desk. And rather than leaving behind seashells for wanderers, she pens dark, gritty erotic literature that examines the complexities of human emotions and sexuality through an ever-changing lens. She delves into the shadowy areas and explores the social-perceptions of taboos.

She threads together the remnants of the world she witnessed in order to shed light on obscure places.


Thank you Angels With Attitude Book Reviews for taking part in the Confessions Collection Volume 1 tour.

What would you have done differently if you was the main character of your book?

I’ve grappled with this question because I’d be way out of my depth. My hats off to the characters and how they are handling their situations.

What was your inspiration behind this book?

The opening scene came to me and I was sucked into telling the characters story. 

Why did you become a writer?

I love storytelling and writing provide me another set of lenses to present story from.

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what there fans think and want in there continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?

First and foremost, I’m a reader who loves books! I love talking about them. I love hearing what other readers have to say about them. I love studding the execution, craft and style. The experience you have when you finish a book and you’re swimming in the afterglow or gloom is so personal. I just get all fired up when I can share books with others or introduce them to a new author. I adore seeing what readers have to say about my books. But I don’t know if or how that would equate to more sales. I just want to deliver a deeper more connected experience to my readers every time I sit at my computer staring at the scary blank page before me.

Do you have a favorite author or authors?

A list a mile long but here are a few, Alexandre Duma, Lawrence Hill, Pierre Ambroise François Choderlos de Laclos

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series?

I’ve kind of gone full circle on the stand alone novel to serialized story. I’ve done a lot of pondering about why I write continuing series.

I guess I see the serial story with continuing characters as the story of how their love beat everything they faced. The most thrilling and exhilarating rush, I’ve known is the trials and tribulations, I’ve overcome with the love of my life over the years we’ve shared.

Coming from a repeatedly broken home, I want to see the journey through their beginning, middle and ever after and that’s what I hope to capture in my work. 

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

Jesse Beckett, Pam Godwin, Dead of Eve.

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?

I enjoy dark books. I’m open to different genres.

Do you cry when writing sad scenes?

Yes.  For me the scene has hit the emotional key until I’m gripped by the same feelings, I seek to create for the reader.

Did you have a Cover Designer?

I do not.

Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush?

Jesse Beckett, Pam Godwin, Dead of Eve. As you can see I’m a one man kind of woman.

If you we able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be?

I wouldn’t inflict a one on one with me. But I’ve love to have a dinner party with Mary Shelley, Anais Nin, Brontë sisters, Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle.

Do just re-read your favorite books?

There are passages I love to reread from books.

Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do?

I wish I had more time to read. Usually when I get to pick something off my TBR I need to recharge from a long writing stretch. The book has most often been recommended by many so I’ve yet to hit a slump.

What is the funniest book you ever read?

Losing It by Cora Carmack.

I read Losing It and maybe it's my mood but I didn't have as much fun with it as I thought I'd have! Sorry!

To each his own I guess...

Lovely excerpt, so provocative!
