Favorite Love Scene

I’m in the business of reading and writing tons of love scenes and one of the favorite ones I’ve ever come across would have to be the first love scene between Teyla and Logan in The Pleasure Girl – Book 1 of my Desperadoes series (Siren Bookstrand).

Teyla is a pleasure girl in a post-catastrophic world where electricity has been knocked out and the world’s climate has gotten colder. In order to survive women do things they’d never ordinarily do. Logan has come to Teyla’s secluded farmhouse looking for a warm bed and a sexy lover for himself and two of his friends. He plans on being with her alone for one night before his friends arrive.

Here’s a snippet of a prelude to a love scene that some readers have told me they loved because it was unique because of the hero’s request of wanting to be shaved…down there. LOL

Excerpt:

“Do you have a special man in your life?” The question erupted from the bathroom, rocking her world.

“Excuse me?” she called out, wondering exactly what he meant by that question.

“A boyfriend? Husband? Someone you’re dating?”

“N…no.”

“Good. I prefer a woman who is available.”

Teyla blinked in astonishment. Odd comment coming from a guy who wanted to share her with two other guys. Three guys and her? Oh, lord, she’d better not think about it.

“Do you do this often?” she blurted, instantly regretting asking the question, realizing it was none of her business. But it was the first thing that popped into her mind, and when she was nervous, she did have the tendency to say stupid things.

He appeared at the doorway, shaving utensils and a couple of facecloths laid out on a folded towel in his hand. That damned bottle and two glasses clutched in his other hand.

He was smiling at her. That hot, sexy shadow made him look both dangerous and erotic at the same time. He wore that same crooked smile as when he’d caught her watching him at the window earlier. The smile made the sides of his eyes crinkle, and she noticed tiny laugh lines at the corners of his mouth also. The knowledge that he appeared to be used to laughing made her feel so much better. Safer, too.

“Why do you ask?” he asked. “Are you jealous already?”

His sense of humor was a definite asset.

“Maybe,” she teased, feeling some of the tension ease out of her shoulders.

He strolled to her dresser with the mirror and placed the glasses and the bottle, which she noted as whiskey, and the utensils and towel down beside her pitcher.

“Before we begin, I want you to shave me,” he said softly as he prepared the items, laying them out on the dresser.

When he finished, he looked at her, and his intense gaze made her catch her breath. She didn’t want him to lose that erotic-looking five o’clock shadow. It made him look so sexy and dangerous. The look excited her. But he was paying her. If he wanted a shave, so be it.

She made a move to stand, but he ordered her to remain sitting as he whipped up the lather. When it was a frothy cream, he turned to her, and to her surprise, his hand fell to the stud on his jeans.

Nervousness fluttered through her again. Gosh, she thought she would have a few minutes more before they had sex. Or did he want her to shave him while they were having sex? Lordy, now that would be interesting.

“I…I thought you wanted a shave?”

Her eyes latched onto his fingers as he unzipped.

“I do.”

She swallowed as he lowered his jeans. His package pressed boldly against his white briefs. Definitely big. Very big. Oh boy. Oh boy. Dr. Liz, girl, what have you gotten me into?

“I want you to shave me down here,” he said and stroked the outline of his big erection.

Her eyes widened at his words.

Down there? Oh my God.

“I’ll pass you the items. I want you to just sit right where you are.” His voice had gone deeper, hoarser. His eyes darker. They glistened with fire. His body scent, strong and dominant, whispered along her nerve endings, making her very aware of her sexuality. Very aware of him.

“Pull down my underwear. So we can get started.”

Both their breaths shot through the silent air like rockets, and her fingers trembled as she did as he asked. His flesh felt scorching hot to her touch as she slipped her fingers beneath the waistband of his briefs. Tugging, she inhaled sharply as…

Here’s a bit more as the scene continues a couple of paragraphs later…

Anxiety almost overwhelmed her as she began to shave him, and she found herself scrambling for something to say. But what did one say while shaving a man in such an intimate area on his body?

“Have you done this before?” he asked, his voice sounding strangled, as if he were maybe afraid? Well, maybe he should have asked before she’d gotten started.

“It’s a little late to be asking that question, isn’t it?” She couldn’t help but laugh.

“I hope not,” he retorted, amusement lacing his voice. There was that humor again. She smiled and lifted her gaze from his magnificent size to peer up at his face. She shouldn’t have looked up because his eyes were so dark with desire she could barely stand the spear of need bursting inside her lower belly.

The tips of his luscious lips tilted upward again and his smile zeroed in on her like a heat-seeking missile. Suddenly she just wanted to be swept away into his strong arms. To be held. To be taken by him.

Oh, boy. He was a client, for God’s sake! Becoming emotionally involved, even thinking emotional things was taboo! Men looked at her like an object. Nothing more. She shouldn’t want to have Logan holding her and making love to her. This is just sex, remember that, Teyla.

She continued with the shave, going slowly and carefully and keeping her mouth shut. Thankfully, he said no more, and when she finished, she wiped him with the wet face cloth he handed her. A couple of rinses later, he was as clean as a newborn.  

“I assume you wish to supply the condoms?” he asked after he returned the shaving items to the nearby dresser. She nodded and pointed to the night table beside the bed.

“In there. Pick your size.” He slid the drawer open and skimmed the several boxes with his fingertips. Obviously, he knew the drill with pleasure girls. Most preferred to supply the condoms. She was one of them.

Condoms were expensive, just like everything else these days, but well worth the expense to ensure her condoms were fresh and hadn’t been tampered with or inadvertently damaged. Men tended to keep them folded in wallets or in areas where tiny holes were inadvertently poked into the protection. The last thing she needed was a sexually transmitted disease or a baby without a dad.

He lifted out a box of condoms, opened it, but didn’t take any out.

“Before we begin, let’s get a little more acquainted. You’ve touched me and seen some of me. Now it’s my turn. Let your breasts free.”

To her surprise, she creamed at his instruction. She liked the expectant look on his face, and for some odd reason, he didn’t make her feel like she was dirty as most of her clients did. He didn’t make her feel like an object. He just made her feel kind of sexy and shy.

Her fingers trembled as she reached for the small, delicate buttons on the negligee. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he watched…

I hoped you enjoyed the excerpts to the prelude to one of my favorite love scenes.

Cinderella vs Sinderella

Sinderella is my favorite fairy tale! Ooops perhaps I should have said Cinderella?

Yes, *Jan eagerly nodding her head* when I was younger, it was Cinderella.

As a child I loved reading fairytales  Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and so many more. It was awesome to wrap my mind around those awesome fantasy worlds. When I was a wee kid, one night my dad dragged me out of bed and sat me down on the living room couch, tossed a blanket over me, turned on the black and white tv (we didn’t get color until the early 80’s) and he said, “Watch this one. You will like it.”

He was right. LOL. OMG! I loved it! It was the 1965 musical/fantasy/romance version “Cinderella” starring actors Leslie Ann Warren and Stuart Damon.

cinderella_1965 version

cinderella 1964

Music/songs are by Rodgers and Hammerstein. I sing the songs from that movie to this very day while I am hiking in the woods. So when you come across a strange lady in the wilderness singing “It’s Possible” –  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtFhREtPdiE  (check out those glass slippers!),  “Ten Minutes Ago” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIe2Y5lgahQ , or “Do I Love you because you are Beautiful?” or many others…chances are it is me singing!

Soap opera fans of General Hospital will also be thrilled to see that Stuart Damon (Alan Quartermine) plays Prince Charming. He’s so cute! As you can see by reviews on the Amazon.com site the movie is well worth the purchase if you love a sweet romance and fairy tales.

As I got older, I wrote Sinderella, my own Cinderella version – an adult erotic romance. I love this cover!!

Here’s a peek:

By day she’s a dedicated gynecologist. By night Dr. Ella Cinder escapes reality by secretly performing in her own erotic, adult version of Cinderella, aptly re-titled Sinderella.

When sexy colleague Dr. Roarke Stephenson shows up in the Sinderella audience on the same night her Prince Charming stands her up, Ella seizes the opportunity to make Roarke into her Prince Charming for one carnal night of hot, blazing sex.in front of an audience.

But at the strike of midnight, Ella knows she must face the harsh reality that Roarke must never learn her secret life and they can never be together again. Until then, she plans on making sure he’ll never forget their night of carnal play.

Dr. Roarke Stephenson is immediately captured by the lusciously curvy actress who hides behind a mask and is known only as Sinderella. For some insane reason she reminds him of his klutzy co-worker Ella. But that’s not possible. Ella would never have the nerve to do the wickedly delicious things Sinderella does to him…or would she?

Layered Peppermint Cheesecake for the Holidays!

Oooh yummy! Isn’t the photo below gorgeous? Luv it! Wouldn’t you love it for desert on Christmas?

In my erotic romantic suspense “Peppermint Creek Inn”, my heroine, Sara, has a small peppermint company where she makes all kinds of things out of peppermint. Soaps, teas, candies, deserts, etc…Sara lives in the desolate wilderness of Northern Ontario, Canada. The peppermint leaves she uses are harvested from a nearby creek. The creek meanders past her Inn, named Peppermint Creek Inn.

When a wounded man with amnesia shows up at her Inn one stormy night, they are trapped together due to bad weather.  Matt falls in love with Sara and her peppermint cheesecake. Here’s a lip smacking recipe that I like to think of similar to the one Sara whips up for her sexy hot hero Matt. Enjoy!

And if you are interested in checking out my erotic romantic suspense “Peppermint Creek Inn”  Book 1 in my Undercover series at Ellora’s Cave here is a sneak peek:

Peppermint Creek Inn

She wants to forget her past…

Sara lives alone in the isolated wilderness of Canada…until one stormy night when an injured fugitive with amnesia forces his way into her home and straight into her wounded heart. He’s dangerous, tastes of dark, delicious sex and unleashes lusty cravings she never knew she had. Although there can be no future with a sexy man accused of murder, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep him in her life and in her bed.

He needs to remember his past…
She smells of sweet peppermint and makes him burn with hot desire. He wants her, needs to be deep inside her and yearns to forget the terror-filled flashbacks that haunt him. Crooked cops and a romantic ghost town hold the secrets to his mysterious past, and if he’s ever going to give her a future they both crave, he’ll have to prove his innocence, even if it means facing his dangerous past head on.

Note: This book was previously released at a different publisher. It has been extended and extensively revised to express the steamier side of suspense.

Dark Heroine – Morgan Black of “Her Captive”

Dark Heroine – my modern day pirate!

Arrrrrgh! Ahoy! My favorite dark heroine is a female character I created. She’s s a modern day pirate and she’s the dark heroine of my contemporary erotic romance “Her Captive” (Siren Publishing).

Morgan Black and her family hijack shipments off the coast of the United States and then they sell their stolen cargo on the black market.

Morgan is rich from her illegal activities, but it’s her way of life and she has no qualms about how she earns a living. She loves the dangers of her job and she lives on her luxury yacht. Life is good. But when Morgan steals their arch pirate enemy’s bounty, he puts a hit out on her family, Morgan must find a way to protect them.

her captive banner

Morgan’s elderly grandmother has a one sure-fire way to keep everyone safe. Morgan must unite the families – forcefully. She must kidnap their arch enemy’s only grandson and make sure he gets her pregnant! A child will meld the fighting families together and the hit will be void. Arrrrgh! Forced unions between pirate families have been a tradition for centuries and if Morgan can pull this pregnancy off, she will have saved her family from harm.

roman prince

 Roman Prince has nothing to do with his grandfather’s pirating ways, but obviously that doesn’t matter because suddenly he’s been kidnapped and is being held against his will on a luxurious yacht. He figures he’s being held for ransom – his grandfather is filthy rich due to his illegal activities. And so Roman may as well get comfortable as granddad takes his time when it comes to parting with his money. But Roman knows granddad will come thru. He just needs to be patient. When a sexy woman is given to him to help pass the time, he just cannot resist the succulent lady. She must be getting paid very well to keep him entertained because she really is good in bed.

Night after night he makes love to her and darned if he thinks he just might be falling head over heels for this pleasure chick.

Unfortunately Morgan is having the same problem. This hot hunk sure knows how to get her motor running and she’s starting to care way too much for Roman Prince. But how is Her Captive going to react when he finds out she’s not a paid pleasure girl but he’s been kidnapped for his sperm!  CAUTION: This book contains naughty scenes some readers may find offensive.

~*~

I had a really fun time writing Her Captive. I tried to make our heroine Morgan dark with her pirating ways but in the end she turns out to be vulnerable and hopelessly in love with a man who will hate her for forging a union between their feuding families. Or will he hate her? Arrrrgh my fine maties! Only reading the book will give you the bountiful answers you seek.

I hope you enjoyed my post on dark heroines! For more information on Morgan and Her Captive feel free to visit the Publisher’s website.
