If You Don’t Like My Opinion…

Too fucking bad. Read another blog or something.

I don’t like the HEA requirement.

It’s not that I think HEAs should be banned. Just that a book shouldn’t have to have one to be a romance.

No, I’m not a happy camper at the moment. A pity I don’t have time to play or I’d seriously consider starting a flame war, and you know who you are.

NJ Walters: The Tale behind Sunshine For A Vampire

Sunshine DeMarco is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed vampire who just doesn’t fit in with her own people. She doesn’t really like the whole vampire lifestyle–the opulent surroundings and overindulgence in everything from food to drink to blood. But even she has family and social obligations. While attending a party for a special European dignitary, she finds herself captivated by a tall, dark stranger. One sensual dance between them leads to a passionate tryst in the host’s garden. Reality intrudes and Sunshine flees, but she hasn’t seen the last of her mystery lover.

NJ says: Some authors and I were on a chat group one afternoon and we were talking about vampires–specifically vampires who were different. I had a vision of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, short vampire who was unlike her tall, dark-haired, dark-eyed brethern. Throw in the fact that she likes to garden and has a “day” job, so to speak, and she’s really a misfit among her rich, aristocratic contemporaries. I wondered what would happen if she had to attend a social function. Sort of a vampire Cinderella story. Thus began the story of Sunshine DeMarco and her most memorable night at the ball.

At last, a vampire novella… Continue reading ‘NJ Walters: The Tale behind Sunshine For A Vampire’

Lacey Alexander: The Tale behind The Pirate and the Pussycat

When Leah gets an invitation to a friend’s annual Halloween bash, she has mixed emotions. After all, at last year’s party, she met a man, fell for him hard in just one night, and then … never heard from him again. So this year, she decides to take a new approach. Screw the emotions – she’s going to find a hot guy and do the dirty with him, no intimate strings attached. And besides being a little kinky, doing it with costumes on will make it even less personal.Arriving at the soiree in her sexy cat costume, she spies a totally hot pirate across the room and knows instantly that he’s the man she’s going to seduce. But can she succeed in her plan? Or will this naughty little kitty end up heartbroken all over again?

Lacey says: What inspired this story was the title itself. I’m a huge fan of Halloween – and also pirates, as it happens – and when it came time to pen a story for one of the EC Caveman anthologies that would be released in autumn, it seemed like the perfect time to fit my sexy title to a fun, naughty Halloween romp. It also happens that I was once in a bar where the Captain Morgan’s rum people had sent a guy dressed in full Captain Morgan regalia to do promotional giveaways. He was WAY hot and the memory provided the inspiration for my hero.

Kate Willoughby: The Tale behind A Man of Vision

For Cristoforo, sculpting marble is his life, but the price of creation is a libido that rides him like a demon. When he discovers his sculpting days are numbered, he hires a mistress to satisfy him night and day.
Modern-day courtesan Delphine arrives at his villa prepared for the rigors of being on call 24/7. What she isn’t prepared for, however, is the intensity of her body’s response to Cristoforo. When she learns what is driving him so ruthlessly, she wonders if she can protect her heart…or if it’s already too late.

Kate says:When I saw a call to participate in a chain story for a free erotic story site many years ago, I joined in. Over the course of many chapters, the heroine, Erica, experienced a wide, sometimes shocking, variety of sexual adventures, all penned by different people. However after a while, I pulled my chapter from the site with the intention of expanding it into its own free standing story. So when I heard about Ellora’s Cavemen anthologies, I changed eighty percent of the original vignette and was ecstatic when they accepted it for their Seasons of Seduction, Volume III. Now, I can’t wait to see if readers enjoy it, too!

Charlene Teglia: The Tale behind I Was an Alien’s Love Slave

Micki Sloane needs a hero and she needs him now. She’s a romance writer with a deadline and writer’s block and no inspiration in sight. Desperation drives her on a tour of Seattle bars, which leaves her no closer to her goal. What to do? Wish on a star.

Keelan Os’tana has been seeking his bondmate, the one woman who is on his wavelength – literally. He receives Micki’s mental call and answers by beaming her up and into adventure beyond her wildest imaginings. Her options? Form the permanent telepathic bond with Keelan or go home and take up writing for the tabloids. “I Was An Alien’s Love Slave” is a sure seller, but Keelan makes it awfully tempting to live the fantasy instead.

Charlene says: I saw this lurid headline on a tabloid one day waiting in line at the grocery store. I howled. I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever seen. All I had to do was think of this headline and I cracked up. So of course I had to write a story to go with the headline. My alien-abduction encounter of the erotic romance kind must’ve made all the editors laugh, too, because it was one of the 24 stories chosen for the Ellora’s Cavemen anthologies.

happening to her body, and when she sets eyes on the gorgeous Kade, leader of Lannar, all kinds of weird and very wonderful things begin happening to her libido.The minute Kade sets eyes on the alpha Earth woman he knows she’s his mate. How it’s possible that an Earth woman is the mate for a shape shifting panther, he’s not sure. All he knows is that there is only one way to help ease the pain in her body and make her first transformation easier. Through mating. And there is only way to mark her as his mate. Through submissionBut will the Earth woman be strong enough to mate with the alpha panther inside him, yet submissive enough to allow him to claim her?

Cathryn says: About a year ago I took my dog to the vet. While there my daughter decided to pet the veterinarian’s cat that freely roamed the waiting room. This cat turned around and bit my daughter on the arm. It didn’t draw blood, but it left a scratch mark. I couldn’t believe it. I told the receptionist what happened. She shrugged and with casual nonchalance, said, “That’s never happened before.”

I got to thinking, what if my daughter caught something rare from the cat. We’ve all heard of Cat Scratch Fever. So my story Panther’s Pleasure evolved from that one incident. I’m still not very happy that the receptionist was so nonchalant about the whole cat bite though!
