Birthday Bash day 27: Guest Post: Lila Shaw

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a funny post from the awesome Lila Shaw today!  Can't believe this month is almost over. I have had a blast! Hope you all are still having fun.

Welcome to a special birthday edition book for my "Regrettable Book of the Week™" series. For those of you new to my series, this is 100% parody. You are more than welcome to laugh, snicker and guffaw at my amateurish photoshopping and blurb writing. Bad is good. Good is bad. 



Who said love wasn't a science!


Dr. Karen Darwin is the foremost zoologist in the area of giant panda reproduction. She is passionate about her work and desperate to save these beautiful creatures from extinction. Loss of habitat has led to more and more breeding in captivity programs, but success has been elusive. The pandas either can't seem to get in the mood or have somehow forgotten how to do it. 

 David Marceau is from a long line of mimes, but he is facing his own form of extinction. Nobody likes mimes any more, not even ones with killer smiles and drool-worthy bodies. Work is difficult to find and his latest gig has been entertaining children at the zoo. It's not a bad job, but the animals are a more appreciative audience than the humans. 

When Karen spies her breeder pair, Zhou Zhou and Ting Ting, watching and mimicking the zoo's mime, she concocts an outrageous plan. But will the mime go along with it? Will he agree to an adult version of show and tell that is both titillating and dangerous? If the pandas don't like the performance they might attack. But even more dangerous, can Karen keep her sacrifice limited to the good of science and the survival of a species, or will a certain mime steal and lock her heart in a box and throw away the key?

About Lila Shaw:

Lila Shaw is the pen name for a writer of works of erotica and erotic romance including her most recent series, The Succubus Chronicles. Her writing typically features strong-willed women, and are often playful, sarcastic and a little silly. She believes if you can’t occasionally laugh at the physical aspects of love, you’re taking life far too seriously…unless the condom breaks, then you have every right to fret. Lila lives in the Pacific NW with her very funny husband, “the Silverback”, and their two teenaged sons. In her day job she is a finance/operations professional while her home remains a venue of domestic idleness except for the revving iMac in her office.
