Caught your attention didn’t I?
I have three goals today:
1) Talk about the M&M girls
2) To talk about when and where do your characters get it on.
3) Pimp my newest release, HIGHLAND DRAGON.
Let’s start with the M&M girls. I am seriously thinking about moving to Georgia. :) Seriously, I love my home chapter but you gals know how to throw a party. To expand, I attended the M&M conference over the weekend and had such a wonderful time. It is true what they say about the south. You ladies are verra, verra welcoming. Of course, not everyone could get in to see Monique Patterson of St. Martins but Sally tried. She tried hard! So I just wanted to thank you all for the food, and the dancing, and the connections and the all around great fun. I’ll definitely be back! :)
Now…on to my topic: Get out of the bed and have sex!
I was doing a workshop at M&M that required me to figure out what was going to happen in the middle of my book. I thought, and humphed, and thought some more, and since I’m a pantser, I decided to just put SEX on few post it notes and move on. But all joking aside, when we write those hot steamy love scenes, are we being as creative as we can be? I know it is the emotions that keep the reader going, but don’t you sometimes want to read about how the hero and heroine just couldn’t make it to the bed?
Well, I do. When I get ready to write a love scene, I think about how I can dress it up. In fact, I even gave it a name in one of my books “Monkey-sex”. Of course that book takes place in the jungle. I’ve written sex scenes on a horse, on the rail of a ship, in a tree…
So let’s hear from you. Have you read or written a love scene that takes place outside of the bedroom. Tell us about it and what made it memorable.
OK…last goal for the day…pimpage!
Check out my award-winning novel, HIGHLAND DRAGON.Secrets and lies have a price that must be paid in blood through the generations. In medieval Scotland, Laird Calin MacLeod must choose between avenging his father's death and surrendering to the passion he finds in the arms of his enemy's daughter.
A Snippet (which takes place in a tree BTW):
KISSING THE DRAGON
He stroked her lips open with his thumb. "I have a boon or two of my own I'd like ye to agree upon before I take ye as my lady wife."
Akira remained compliant.
"Ye will allow me to kiss ye every morn..." He kissed her bottom lip. "And every eve..." He kissed her top lip. "And anytime I feel the need to press your sweet lips to mine." With this request, he tilted his head and flicked his tongue in her mouth. She jerked, but he held her firmly until she returned his kiss with equal abandon.
He forced himself away, but lingered on the pulse in her neck still beating wildly against his lips. "Will ye agree to my conditions as I have agreed to yours?" he whispered in her ear, waiting for her to catch her breath.
"'Tis all ye ask of me?"
"For the nonce."
"Do I have to return your kisses?"
"Aye." Calin nearly laughed.
"I'll do my best to honor your boon, m'laird."
