Interview With Shona Husk

By on May 13, 2013

I sat down (virtually) with Shona Husk for a short interview. Shona Husk writes hot, hot, HOT SciFi erotic romances for Ellora’s Cave and her latest release is Lunar Exposure. It looks delicious. You know I love SciFi erotic romances!

Cynthia Sax: What excites you about Lunar Exposure?

Shona Husk: This is my first scifi, so it was a totally new experience for me. I usually write paranormal romance and while there is some world building (and even alternate worlds to build like the Shadowlands and Annwyn) it is still different to building alien civilizations and futuristic tech. But I love making things up so I had a lot of a fun with that aspect. The other part I really love is bounty hunters! My hero and heroine are bounty hunters and they are after the same man and both have very good reasons for wanting him (aside for the chits). So while they can’t keep their hands off each other, professionally they are at odds.

Cynthia Sax: Why does Lunar Exposure start where it does?

Shona Husk: The first scene is the hero, Callen, arriving at Decadent Moon. The story is about him trying to catch the villain who wants to blow up the Moon, starting earlier wouldn’t have added to the story. This way the reader gets to arrive at the resort with the hero and see it through his eyes—as a flashy place he can’t really afford but he really wants to get Noga and he really needs the bounty as he took out a slightly dodgy loan to get to the Moon. It’s through Callen’s eyes that we also see Haliday for the first time and he sees exactly what she wants him to. I did consider starting in Haliday’s POV with her arrival at the Moon but it’s a place where she fits in and because I was introducing the reader to an alien resort I thought that the best way to do that was through Callen. Plus we get to learn really fast what the danger is, something not even Haliday knows yet…

Cynthia Sax: Does Haliday in Lunar Exposure have a secret?

Shona Husk: My heroine has a big secret, one that could get her killed if anyone found out. It’s also what drives her every action from her need to hunt down criminals to the way she donates most of her reward chits to the orphanages on her homeworld. She isn’t living a double life for fun, she has to.

Cynthia Sax: Is Lunar Exposure part of a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?

Shona Husk:
I have already written a couple more stories set on Decadent Moon and they are with my editor (so my fingers are crossed). And I have a couple more planned. There are so many stories that can be told there, and so many aliens to create and explore 🙂

Thank you, Shona Husk, for joining us today!

Bounty hunter Callen wants to capture Noga—a terrorist—both for the money and for revenge. But catching a criminal on the sensual resort of Decadent Moon without giving in to all the destination’s sexual pleasures is harder than it seems.

Haliday is the darling of the media, a socialite known as much for her casual relationships as she is for her charitable donations. No one knows she hunts down criminals.

Lust and ambition clash, and Callen and Haliday will have to find a way to work together, despite the distraction of their passionate bond. To succeed they must trust each other, something neither Callen nor Haliday is willing to do.
