I have fun writing erotic romances because I am encouraged to “push the envelope” and that means being really naughty. I love being naughty. *wink* *nudge*
Some Genres I Write
Futuristic Erotic Romance
I enjoy writing futuristic erotic romance because I get to create any kind of world I want. No restrictions. I let my creative mind go nuts. LOL. In my “Outlaw Lovers” series at Ellora’s Cave I went really dark. I’ve killed off most of the women’s population after terrorists unleash a submissive virus that goes viral. The virus mixes with deadly flus etc… The women who are left alive have a fight on their hands with many sexy hot men who are craving female companionship. In order to accommodate men’s needs for women, the government decrees women are to be “shared” by groups of men. The latest in the Outlaw Lovers series is “Resistance”. More on the Outlaw Lovers can be found here.
Post-Catastrophe Erotic Romance
In The Desperadoes, (Siren BookStrand) most of the population has disintegrated due to a burst of solar flares. The survivors are left in a world without electricity and women are forced to do what they must in order to survive. Of course they will find love and romance along the way. *grin* For more info please click on covers.
I also write contemporary erotic romance, kink, paranormal, and erotic romantic suspense.

Bulletproof Kink — What gets you going no matter how badly it’s done?
Hmm, well I have many bulletproof kinks…which appear in my stories.…and I don’t dare confess any of my naughty kink secrets as I wish to remain mysterious in those aspects, so I’ll save them all for future stories. *wink* And if something is done badly…then I won’t be doing it again. So I guess I don’t have any if they are done badly.
Since I don’t have any that get me going if they are done badly…I’ll give you a peek at my latest futuristic erotic romance release “Sex With the Ex”. It has a wee bit of voyeurism, some bondage (ohlala – ok so maybe a bullet proof kink is bondage, but that’s all your getting out of me today) and a hot story.
“Sex With the Ex” was my very first foray into the erotic romance world back in 2002. Recently I re-wrote it for Spunky Girl Publishing. This story is naughty f/m and takes place in the future where sex drugs, sex slaves etc…it’s all legal and a very lucrative industry for the tax man. Weddings are consummated in front of the preacher, friends and friends *gasp* and tax evasion regarding adult industry profits is a big huge no no, so the government has special Squads who look into these serious matters.
Here’s a peek:
When Sex Squad Detective Sky Kelley informs her fiancé, Detective Jim O’Brien, that she wants to wait until they’re married before they have sex, he dumps her! Angry and defiant at his rejection, Sky undertakes a dangerous mission into the dark and sensual world of sex slave training on one of Saturn’s pleasure moons.
When Jim discovers Sky has volunteered for the mission, he’s enraged. She’s too pure and innocent for such a naughty assignment and he has no choice but to follow her. However, Sky isn’t anybody’s damsel in distress and she’s going to prove it in ways Jim has only dreamed about…

I’m not that kinky and I don’t write it, so I struggled to come up with a post about my bullet-proof kink. I had to ask myself what I have hidden away that I don’t let my relatives or grandchildren to see? What’s in my closet? Over 300 volumes of Japanese yaoi – all heat levels, some more porn than story.
Yaoi is Japanese boy’s love comics written by women for women.
Usually a seme and uke form the couple – seme is the top and uke, well you guessed it, is the bottom. There are mangaka (Japanese comic illustrators and writers) that draw very explicit and steamy sex scenes, genitals and all. They are realistic and the men don’t look like ‘Ken’ dolls when naked. Some fan favorite mangakas for erotic yaoi are Youka Nitta, Yuki Shimizu, Ayano Yamane, Megumu Minami, Kazuma Kodaka. Ayano Yamane and Megumu Minami use all sorts of sex toys and the ukes many times will find themselves tied up and in a, uh, uncompromising situation.
Be warned. Japanese sensibilities are very different from the American mind-set. Some of it will offend. Anything and everything is fair game in yaoi so you need to sort through and find what works for you.I go for the ‘best friends fall in love’ and the ‘business men’ theme where the seme is handsome, wealthy, arrogant and falls hard for the equally attractive, but hard as nails, uke. I don’t like the uke to look like a boy but I don’t mind an older feminine looking uke, either.
When I want to have a little porn in my life, or a little sweet romance, I get out my favorite dog-eared manga and I’m a happy fangirl.

Okay, so I get it. I’m being asked to delve into the darkest heart of my psyche and reveal to you the one thing that gets my engine revving, no matter what…
It doesn’t exist.
Come on…that’s like asking a foodie what’s the one dish he or she’d eat no matter the circumstances. I bet that no matter how much you love lobster, spaghetti marinara or whatever, if it’s burnt, bastardized in some weird way or just plain unpalatable You. Will. Not. Finish. It.
The reality is, I like sex. I like reading about sex. I like writing about people having hot, smexy encounters. I enjoy reading about all KINDS of sex, as long as it’s written well. No matter what the scenario, if it’s done with grace, finesse and a heaping helping of jalapeno-hot hotness, I’m in.
If I’m picking at the editing (or lack thereof), wondering how the freakin’ freaky-deak the woman’s leg is in that position without her snapping in two, or flipping back to figure out if the hero was wearing two pairs of pants…you’ve lost me. And I don’t care if it’s a threesome on a tightrope over the Grand Canyon, if I yawn, even once, it’s all over.
Okay, so maybe I’m just crabby, but it would be easier for me to tell you what I DON’T like to read than pick one favorite act or arc I find bulletproof. So make it hot. Make it sexy. Make me wanna push the heroine (or one of the heroes) off the hood of that car and get it on with the other participant, and I’m all in. Suck me in (no pun intended!) and I’m as happy as a woman with two hung husbands.
I’m all yours…
So my partners in crime want to know what gets me going. As I am typing this, I notice that no one else has scheduled their post yet, so I am going to make a prediction, LOL. I will probably be the most vanilla one here LOL.
My bullet proof kink would have to be oral sex. Man or woman on the receiving end. I think the image can be very sexy. There are a few times that I have seen this type of thing written pretty bad, but even in those cases I still get that rush reading it.
My favorite way to write this type of scene is with little interspaced pieces of dialogue. Maybe add in a few growls in the case of my werewolf books. But this also is a great way to add in the sense of taste. As writers it is beaten into our heads about always making sure to include the five senses. Well, in this case you can be a little truthful in the saltiness of semen or in your paranormal or sci fi cases you can get really creative. 🙂
So what gets you going, or what shuts you down?

Bulletproof Kink — What gets you going no matter how badly it’s done?
So I’ve got two ways to approach this–what turns me on no matter what when I’m reading sex or just what always turns me on. I’m feeling a bit indecisive so I’ll opt for both.
Kink in books
I feel I need to start with the disclaimer–I write sex, I read sex, I like sex, but there’s no kind of sex that keeps me in a story I don’t like. Period. That may not be true for others, but its true for me.
On the flip side, romance novels without sex generally don’t work for me. There are always exceptions for the well written but if there isn’t something explicit, I feel like the book and the relationship is incomplete. Why? Because how people make love, how they are together in the bedroom (or shower or kitchen table or the corner of restaurant or airplane bathroom) is an integral part of who they are together. What they dare or don’t dare, how they work out the intricacies, how they communicate sexually is as fundamental to their relationship as the first kiss, negotiating a compromise, the nature of an apology etc…. When I get the fade to black, it homogenizes the hero and heroine–I lose a part of them.
The kink doesn’t matter if it is true to the nature of the relationship and the story–if it reveals how our lovers truly play with each other. That’s the key-sex like anything else defines a relationship, so yeah, I want to see it.
Over the years, no need to share just how many, I’ve learned a thing or two. Factoid; the body changes so what turns it on, and how its turned on, changes too. No surprise if you really think about it. But for me a few things have remained constant–especially a certain body parts that if touched, always, and I mean always, gets a rise out of me. Which?
Its no wonder vampires and shifters (think biting and mating) play such key roles in erotic romances. Offering up the neck puts a person in the most vulnerable position imaginable, which makes it, by definition, an act of trust that meshes sex and love in a single touch. If you want to know my flame-on button, lips (or pretty much anything else) on the neck will always get you there.
What about you? Is sex integral to a romance? If so, why and when?
