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.

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?

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.

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 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.
