Vicariously Naughty

I must admit I haven't had a night of naughtiness for a while, yes I know, sad isn't it :( but I'm hoping that will change in the future.

The best thing about being an avid reader, as well as an author, is the fact I can read about other peoples naughty nights any time I want. All I have to do is pick up an erotic romance novel and I'm in another world. I don't have to worry if I've shaved my legs (or other areas). It doesn't matter if I'm wearing my flannaette nightshirt which is not sexy at all. In fact, I could be having the worst bad hair, or bad mood day of all and it doesn't matter. I still get to be vicariously naughty through whatever characters appear on the pages, or e-reader before me.

For me the more erotic the story the better and that's how I like to write as well. I try to let my mind run wild and if the sex isn't limited to the normal places and positions then all the better. The erotic acts don't have to be limited to sex. Sensual encounters can be just as erotic as penetration, and I try to include those moments in my books as well. In Playing Jax, the second novel in the Wylde Shore Series, I included an intimate shaving scene between the two main characters, Steve and Rhia. I hope readers enjoy it as much as the down and dirty fucking that the two of them get into. For me, including that scene bought a new aspect to the characters, it added to the journey of sexual exploration Rhia was engaged in and demonstrated a tender side to Steve's dominance.

There are a plethora of great erotic romances on the market now and finding something that allows the reader to experience new worlds and fantasies is an added bonus of that fact. Hopefully my books and many others serve as inspiration to add a little erotic play to many relationships.
