Interview and Giveaway with Shiela Stewart
Welcome Shiela Stewart! Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.
I’ve been married for 27 years to a wonderfully supportive man who has stuck with me through the good and the bad. We have three grown children, 17, 20 and 24 who always keep me on my toes. I love to write, which is obvious, but aside from that I love to create in other forms such as drawing, painting and knitting. I have a wicked sense of humor and love to scare people. My children are never safe. I’m not sure if I should be proud or annoyed that they inherited my sense of humor. LOL
I’m a huge animal lover. I have six cats and one black lab dog. I also have three turtles.
Is The Naughty Angel a single title, or part of a series?
It’s a single title for me, but a part of Decadent Publishing 1 Night Stand series. They all focus on one thing. Being set up on a one night stand which is part of Madame Eve’s dating service.
What were your inspirations for the story?
I love the TV series, Supernatural. In one episode there is an angel who surprisingly kisses a demon. I thought how perfect it was and what opposites they are. As I was cleaning my house one day, the idea popped into my head to create The Naughty Angel.
Please share your setting for The Naughty Angel. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?
The Naughty Angel takes place at the Castillo Springs Resort in the midst of a winter blizzard. It’s based on a combination of several places really. I’ve always loved the mountains. I’ve been to the stunning mountains in British Columbia, Canada and mirrored the scenery after that. Why a snowstorm you may ask? What better weather to have when bringing together a demon and an angel. Beautiful white fluffy snow whipped up by a fierce wind.
When did the writing bug first bite?
I started writing when I was fourteen. Love poems and songs. But I’ve always been a story teller. I was eight years old when I regaled my cousins with stories of farm animals playing in the fields. The first real story I wrote was when I was fifteen. It was a story about a young girl who delves into black magic with dire consequences.
Who are you favorite authors, book/series?
Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and J.R. Ward. I never miss a book in JD Robb’s In Death Series. I’m slowly catching up on JR Wards Blackdagger Brotherhood series.
What is your most favorite childhood memory?
I loved on a farm until I was eight years old. My most favorite memory would be playing dress-up with the baby pigs with my baby sister.
Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spear time?
I love to create in several forms other than writing. My favorite would be drawing. I love to sketch faces. I also love drawing murals. I also love knitting and crocheting.
Boxers, brief or commando?
I love a man in boxers, especially silk ones.
Favorite eye color?
What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard or seen?
Oh wow, there are so many.
A frozen goat. No, not ice frozen but rather frozen to the spot. A few years back I saw a clip on TV about a disorder that was just discovered in certain types of goats. When scared they would freeze up, not move and fall over. It’s both hilarious and strange at the same time.

Even the good turn bad sometimes.
A life of servitude to God has left Ariel Raine feeling worn out. Being an Angel isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Day in and day out of the same routine tends to get tedious. Wanting some spice in her life, she sets her mind on discovering the allure of a sexual encounter. With the help of Madam Eve and her 1 Night Stand dating services, Ariel is about to have her world rocked.
Only problem is…her match is a demon.
Edison Grey has relied on dating services to claim minions for not only him, but for his master Satan as well. 1 Night Stand just happens to be this week’s preference. No use wasting a good service, Edison decides to have a little fun while he’s at it.
Stripping an angel of her purity is an added bonus.
What happens between Ariel and Edison is a surprise to both. Even with the threat of punishment looming over top of them.
“You’re a demon!”
“And you are an angel.”
“There’s no need to say it with such disdain.”
He leaned one arm on the door, resting his body against it and lifted one eyebrow as he responded. “It’s fitting for how I feel for your kind.”
“My kind? You are the scourge of the earth.”
“Right. And your kind is perfect. I think not.”
“We do not claim what is not ours to take.”
“No, you just possess the bodies of innocent souls to do your bidding.”
“They offer their service to the Lord.”
“Yes, ‘offer’.” He made quotations with his index fingers. “I think we should discuss this in privacy.” He motioned to the couple standing by the door across the hall.
Reluctantly, she stepped inside and he closed the door behind her. “This is a mistake. Surely the woman in charge, this Madame Evangeline, has made a mistake. I couldn’t possibly be fitted with such a detestable creature.”
“Pot calling the kettle black there, sweet cheeks.” She touched her face, confused. “Not those ones.” He motioned to her backside and instantly her face flush with warmth.
“How dare you!”
“What? You came here for sex, right?”
She was aghast at his candor. “Must you be so vulgar?”
“It’s how I roll, sugar. Did you expect your date not to admire your body?”
“I did…well, I assumed he would. That’s not the point.” She stiffened her shoulders. “Keep your eyes to yourself.”
“Happy to.” He let out a long breath. “So…now what?”
“Good luck with that. Storms brewing and they’ve shut the roads down until it clears. I hear it could be several days.”
“I have other ways of leaving.” All she had to do was wish herself elsewhere. No storm could prevent her from returning to heaven.
“Huh, that’s a new one. A cowardly angel.”
She stiffened in response. “I am not a coward!”
The Naughty Angel is the story of two mismatched people who are put together by Madame Eve for one night of passion. Ariel is an angel who wants to feel the desire she sees when she watches the humans together. Edison is a demon who wants to possess his date. But what they find is a very steamy night of sex and possibly a commitment. The Naughty Angel is an interesting story with a unique twist. Shiela Stewart brings together two people who are opposites in every way but are perfect for each other. While it seems that Madame Eve has made a mistake matching an angel and a demon, it turns out again to be a perfect match. I really enjoyed the match up of an angel and demon, showing that they have more in common than anyone would think. The sex in The Naughty Angel is romantic and steamy without being smutty. It is nice to see that love might just be able to conqure hate. The ending leaves you wanting to know more and certainly The Naughty Angel is a perfect story for a series. I would love to read more about Ariel, Edison and the other characters who show up!
