Thank you so much, Selena for hosting me on your blog today. I always have fun here whenever I visit.
When I first started writing romance, the sex in my stories was very vanilla. But then such were the stories I read. Write what you know, right?
Then I met the wonderful ladies involved with Six Sentence Sunday. (This was back when there were only thirty authors participating every week, rather than over one-hundred.) And my eyes were opened to the world of erotic romance, including BDSM, and the ménage. My TBR list grew exponentially, and I devoured romances unlike any I’d ever read before.
Now most of my stories are erotic romance, and at the end of last year, I wrote my first ménage. I’m having a lot of fun exploring the multiple categories of romance in both reading and writing, and understanding the different dynamics of each relationship. Though I tend to throw in aliens, space travel, and new planets. To be honest, I don’t set out to write a specific category. I simply let the characters tell me their tale, even if it means combining several into one story.
What do my friends and family think?
Well, the reaction is mixed. Some have read my stories and enjoyed them. Others are more reserved and embarrassed about reading erotic romance. My husband, who’s not much of a reader, does enjoy my short stories for multiple reasons. 😉 And my kids recognize my covers, but know they can’t read the stories until they’re at least eighteen. Though I do write the occasional story for them, even if it’s just on a sheet of paper, never to be published.
Now, I still do read some vanilla romance, and even young adult, but I do have my binges where everything I read is erotic. My favorite ménage I’ve read is Just Gotta Say by Laura Kaye. I’ve read some other great ménage stories as well by Stacey Kennedy, Kate Richards, DL Jackson, Azura Ice, Deanna Wadsworth, Ann Mayburn, and Desiree Holt. There are many of them out there, but these ladies get the dynamics right, and can crank up the heat.
So, have you read a ménage romance? Did the dynamics work for you? Would you read another?
