Excerpt 1

He took a deep breath of courage and then exhaled, saying, “I should have done this yesterday. If I don’t taste your lips, I won’t get any work done.”

I couldn’t even reply. In an instant, my words were muffled by his mouth, and everything inside me shut down. My body went limp, melting into the seat as my arms flopped at my sides. His hands cupped my face, the pads of his thumbs caressing my cheeks back and forth as his tongue spread my lips, sliding into my willing mouth. He explored inside me, tending to every nook. The longing of his soft kiss pulsed through my whole body, and I forgot who I was and where I was. I had no strength to resist him. I could no longer deny Cross and responded to him, opening my mouth wider, letting my tongue dance with his. A hint of scotch flowed to me as he lingered around my gums and moaned deep inside me. If I had ten tequila shots, all at once, I doubted they’d knock me off my feet as hard as Cross had. The world spun, the car spun, and when he finally pulled away, I couldn’t believe what had happened and how much his kiss awakened the woman inside me.

“You taste much better than I imagined,” he said into my lips, leaning his forehead against mine.

I finally let out the long held breath and asked, “Imagined?”

“I wondered about your lips all night and couldn’t sleep. Now I don’t have to wonder anymore.”

Compose yourself! I thought. This trip is important.

“I’m glad I satisfied your curiosity.” Everything inside me was turning at the thought of Cross thinking about my lips. Who was this woman sitting in his car? I’d never allowed anyone to leave me so breathless and lightheaded and thinking about stupid giddy feelings instead of a ruthless life.

“You satisfied only one of them. I’m curious about the rest of your body too.”


Interview Questions About Erotic Writing:

What authors do you think write excellent erotic fiction?
There are so many of them and each one has a unique style and voice. I love Raine Miller, H.M. Ward, Selena Kitt, Kitty French, Elle Casey, Sylvia Day.... .... this list can go on forever.

How do you judge what makes a good erotic story when writing your own fiction?
For me it's the effect the scene or story has on my own emotions. Since I've written it, I know what will happen, and if those words can still conjure feelings I'm trying to evoke after reading it ten or fifteen times, then it's a good story. I like twists, turns and pushing my characters to their limit. And if they reach that limit, I push some more.

Who is your favorite erotic author and why?
It has to be Selena Kitt. She introduced me to erotica. Selena writes pretty much everything and it amazes me how many titles she has published. Her stories are clear, concise and emotionally titillating. Everything you'd want in erotica.

What is your favorite erotic book and why?
This one changes frequently. At this moment it's Tangled by Emma Chase. It's written from a male point of view and Drews voice is so clear as to who he is. I honestly cannot believe a woman wrote this novel. His thoughts are written so well, as if it was done by a man. And it's so funny. My stomach hurt from laughing while I read the story.

What research books do you recommend for authors starting out in writing erotica?
Every author should have an Erotic Thesaurus created by Morgan Hawke.
Another good one is Emotion Thesaurus by Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman.
I also enjoyed "How To Write Hot Sex" for tips from multi-published erotic authors.
An absolute must is "Be A Sex-Writing Trumpet" by Stacia Kane. It's probably one of my favorites.

What advice would you give an author who wants to write erotica?

Best stories come from the heart. Write what you know and if you don't know it, research it. The best part of writing erotica is the 'field research'. The questions I'd asked my husband about male anatomy even surprised me. Sometimes you try positions to make sure they work (and sometimes you argue with your editors whether they work which makes it all the more interesting if they work for you and not for them). Probably the best advice is to read, and to read a lot.
