Sundae With Nuts - Sayara St. Clair

October 12, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Sayara St. Clair!

Sundae with the Nut Sayara St. Clair

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
To be perfectly honest, I hate knickers! But I do don them before going out in public. And they are usually either of the cotton or lace variety.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
Well, depending on my mood, it would be either Dwayne (the rock) Johnson or Henry Cavill. Do I feel like running my hands all over those rock hard muscles or staring into those gorgeous eyes of blue? Hmmm, decisions, decisions…

3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Oh that’s easy, most definitely Spanish. I think a Spanish guy could read the phone book, a grocery list or Dr Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat, and it would sound like he’s talking dirty to me. “Si, si Senor. Say it again.”

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity.
This is so not exciting and exotic, but it was a bedroom. Well, it was exciting for me at the time, but you know what I mean.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
I believe in lust at first sight. Longing at first sight. Longing for love at first sight. But not actually love. I think that comes a bit later. You’ve got to give it at least a couple of minutes. He he. 

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Is twister considered a board game? If so, I say twister. Maybe with some oil to make it more … interesting, challenging, slippery?

7.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
This is really lame, but it’s what was playing at the time – I wanna sex you up by Color me Badd. I guess at least the title was fitting. But I have to tell you that I absolutely love Peter Cetera too. Oh, and Marvin Gaye.

8.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
Hawaii. There’s something magical about that place. Drinking lava flow cocktails, listening to ukulele music and watching the hula girls dance, while the sun sets on Waikiki beach. Love it.

9.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
After I finish screaming, jumping, crying dancing and laughing—all at the same time—I’ll book an amazing, extended holiday for my whole family. I live in a different country far away from my folks, so I love getting together with them.

10.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
I wanted to be a neurosurgeon. Seriously. When I stood up in front of the class and made that announcement, the kiddies all laughed at me. And then asked each other in whispers what the heck a neurosurgeon was. I ended up becoming a scientist. Then I did a couple of other things. Now I write erotic romance. Never in a million years would I have guessed the career path that I’ve actually taken!
And last but now least.

11.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Mocha almond fudge, with a swirl of whipped cream, hot fudge and nuts on top.

Such a huge pleasure to have a fellow Aussie on board for my Nut this week. And what a beautiful name - Sayara St. Clair. I probably should have thought a bit harder on my own pseudonym.

Miss Sayara, I didn't mean to laugh, but when I was listening to "I Want to Sex You Up" on YouTube for the link, it just came out. Because I really believe in to each their own. It's just that mustache on the one fella and the way they did that chicken dance thing - ooh la la! Okay, I will refrain from raggin' on your love song anymore. 

What really interests me in the story in between the scientist and the erotic romance author. How does one transition in those professions? :-) But it was very noble of you to want to be a neurosurgeon, glad you didn't let those shitty kids laughing at you stop you from reaching the stars! 

And hey! A kindred spirit, another who does not believe in love at first sight. But we are in the minority, Miss Sayara, most of my Nuts firmly believe. And the love stories they have behind that belief should be enough for any skeptic, even myself!

Sayara St. Clair's latest release, HURT ME, HEAL ME, sounds HOT! And we are talking Taboo sizzling hot. If you are looking for an erotic BDSM, then click the links below!


  1. A warm welcome for Miss Sayara! xo

  2. Hi, Sayara. I loved the story about the school kids laughing when you said you wanted to be a neurosurgeon, then whispering among themselves to see if anyone knew what the heck it was. So typical of kids. Kudos to you for following science . . . and for branching into writing!

    1. Hi Mae,
      Thanks for your comment.
      In my work in the field of skin banking, I got to hang out in theatres and watch surgeries. So I kind of lived vicariously through the surgeons I worked with. It was amazing!
      But I'm very happy to be doing what I'm doing now.
      Have a great day,

    2. Hi Mae! Thanks for coming over and spending some time with my lovely guest, Miss Sayara. Who is also very interesting! What exactly is skin banking?

    3. Skin banking (and I hope this doesn't gross everyone out) is retrieving skin from deceased donors and processing it so that it can be used to treat burns patients. It's an extremely thin layer, so thin in fact that it looks and feels like wet tissue paper. It's used as a temporary cover until the patient can regrow their skin or have a small piece of their own skin cultured for permanent coverage.
      If you donate tissue e.g. skin, bone, heart valves, corneas, you can save or improve the lives of many, many patients. If it's something you'd like to do, make your wishes known to your family members, because they're the ones who will have to make the decision at a very difficult time.
      Forgive me for going on about it. I've seen what a difference it can make to people's lives and I can't help putting my tissue banking hat on again!
      :) Sayara.

  3. Hi Cd,

    Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog. I'm visiting my family at the moment, so I should say, "G'day from Down Under."

    I don't blame you for laughing at my song choice - I'm laughing too! At the time it seemed appropriate since it was playing at the time I was in that not-so-exotic locale (refer question four).

    As for my transition from Scientist to writer. It involved quite a few years working in my family's electrical and furniture retail business as buyer/manager/decorator. When I moved to Thailand, I taught English to primary school students. And after that, I decided to start writing. It was something I'd always wanted to do and it's what I enjoy the most out of all the things I've done.

    To keep in the spirit of your blog theme I indulged in a big ol' ice cream. Unfortunately there was no mocha almond fudge to be had. Although a cappuccino and chocolate combo came pretty close.

    Also before I go, I'd like to thank you for the gorgeous photo of Dwayne. Actually, I think I'll just scroll up and have another peek. ;)


    1. Hi Sayara, it's all my pleasure, including the pic of Dwayne. Many of my Lyrical sisters have a Facebook page called Sizzle and Sass, and I'm hosting this week. My theme? Australia. Since you live away, I'm sure you have moments when you miss it until your heart aches. That usually happens for me when there is so much snow in northern Michigan, we don't have anywhere else to plow it to, and the banks are higher (much higher) than the tops of my son's heads. lol
      Ice cream, I truly believe, is the cure for everything. Might go indulge in some myself right now. We are an ice cream family and there is always some in the freezer. Always.

    2. Cd, you're so right about missing home.
      I will definitely check out Sizzle and Sass for a bit of an Aussie infusion.
      Enjoy your ice cream. And if you guys have Copenhagen Ice cream shops over there, you HAVE to try the mocha almond fudge. It's soooo gooood.

  4. Good morning - I'm late, but so happy I stopped in. Sayara, I loved your answers to 3 & 5 and your book cover - Oh La La. Cd, thanks for the picture of Dwayne Johnson. Really perked up my morning.

    1. Thanks Gemma! Glad you stopped by. Enjoy your day.
