Dear Listener,In 2004, I was chosen as the Readers’ Choice winner of the Lori Foster Brava Novella Contest with my entry, “Stolen Pleasures,” which you’ll find inside this audiobook. Kensington published the winning entry in what became my debut release, Bad Boys Ahoy!Since then, Kensington and I have released eight other novels (and another anthology), with more on the way, but a writer’s first book always holds a special place in his or her heart. I’m thrilled that Bad Boys Ahoy! has now been updated with a new title—Scandalous Liaisons—and a new cover, with the award-winning stories inside remaining just as they were first written.If you’re just discovering Lucien, Sebastien, and Hugh for the first time, I hope you love them as much as I do. And if you’ve fallen in love with them before, I hope you do so again.All my best,Sylvia“Wickedly entertaining.” —Booklist“It’s wonderful and passionate and, oh yeah, really hot.” —WNBC.com“Three of the most virile and sexiest men that I have ever read about.” —Historical Society Reviews
Japanese American writer, Sylvia June Day was born on March 11, 1973. Day writes romance novels, speculative/paranormal fiction, historical fiction, and futuristic fiction (under the pseudonym Livia Dare.) S. J. Day is the pseudonym for her non-romance genre works.
Day is a #1 bestseller in 28 countries. She is the co-founder of “Passionate Ink”, a special interest chapter of Romance Writers of America, and served on the Board of Directors from 2009-2013 as well as became the 22nd President of the RWA. For the last three years, Day’s novels have taken spots among the top bestselling books on global year-end sales round ups, making her one the most widely read authors in the world today.
In addition to her novels, Day has written numerous novellas and short stories for both print and digital-first release. Her work has been called an “exhilarating adventure”, by Publishers Weekly and “wickedly entertaining”, by Booklist. She’s been honored with the RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice award, the National Reader’s Choice Award, and multiple nominations for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA Award of Excellence.
Born in Los Angeles, she grew up in Orange County and later lived in Monterey and Oceanside. Day now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, but occasionally enjoys her pied-a`-terre on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York. She considers the two vibrant, energetic, and never-dark cities perfect for a writer whose working hours are as unpredictable as her characters.
