Getting BREATHLESS FOR HIM with Sofia Tate

Sofia Tate joins us today to talk about her Forever Yours debut, BREATHLESS FOR HIM. (If that cover doesn’t grab you, I don’t know what will.)The story: As a gifted opera singer, Allegra Orsini’s only obsession is music-until she meets him. A strikingly handsome and powerful man with a life splashed across the tabloids, Davison Cabot Berkeley isn’t what she expected. He’s unlike the other wealthy patrons who dine at Le Bistro. Davison sees more than just a coat-check girl working her way through grad school. And from the moment he looks at her, those deep green eyes ignite a fire inside Allegra she’s never felt before.  She craves Davison’s touch-his possession-endlessly. Even though every fiber of her being is telling her [...]

GODZILLA—A Surprising Love Story

When I was a little girl, I watched old-school Godzilla on Ted Turner’s Supersation 17 (or TBS for you real old-timers) in Atlanta, Georgia. I might have just dated myself. Let’s keep that between us, yeah?
I remember Godzilla being this big, scary dinosaur/sea/who-knows-what-it-is monster and of course I remember people scattering like ants when he roared. I remember the epic battles with Mothra, Ghidora and King Kong. Death, mass destruction, mayhem—Godzilla was one of the original death-bringers. So when my three teen girls asked me to take them to see the new Godzilla, I was skeptical. I expected more death, mass destruction and mayhem only this time (SPOILER ALERT PEOPLE) Godzilla was a good monster, full of love and caring for the human race—look, I could be stretching that a bit, but bear with me.

Bottom line?

The Ultimate Book Boyfriend

Those are six of my book boyfriends that I would gladly give up an evening to spend with. It’s a good thing there’s a lot of these guys to go around otherwise I’d probably have to fight a few people off for someone them. And I’d fight dirty too. Hands off the 998th Lord Commander of the Night Watch, yo’.

The ultimate book boyfriend has doesn’t have to be the Alpha Male, but the majority of them are. The best book boyfriends, at least for me, also have to have a code and live by it—even when it’s not convenient or easy for them to do so. I like a hero to have a weakness for the heroine, that bumps up against the lines he has drawn for himself. And that weakness, which we all know is really strength, allows him to become more—better.

Cops Are the Ultimate Alpha Heroes in Virna DePaul’s New Erotic Series

Actors aren’t the only ones adept at wearing a professional mask. As a criminal prosecutor, I had mine and I worked with many cops who certainly had theirs. Cool. Calm. Solid and dependable. A cop protects others, so he needs to project all these things. However, many cops give off a sexy vibe without even trying. What is it about a “man in blue” that’s so darn intoxicating? There’s the uniform, sure. The handcuffs. The gun. But there’s also the confidence. The authority. Everyday, cops must overcome dangers that would terrify average citizens. This knowledge naturally lends itself to fantasies of meeting a man who is intuitive enough to know what a woman wants, dominant enough to give it to [...]

Guest Post & Giveaway – Erotic Romance Tops the Sales Charts by Beth Kery

Join Beth Kery today & her analysis of why Erotic books are so – – – – hot – enjoy! We all know it’s true, erotic romance is more popular than it’s ever been before. The question is, why? One can’t ask the question without having four words pop into their head: Fifty Shades of Grey. I call E.L.

Young and old, men and women, housewives and Army colonels are admittedly addicted to this book.

A reader asked me this question just the other day, and I came up with a few authors whose stories reached that level of steam: Robin Schone; Bertrice Small; Lora Leigh; and a few others but then I started blanking out — I could not come up with other steamy stories . . .
