Her Heart’s Tomb by Jennifer Kacey

I was lucky enough to have Her Heart’s Tomb selected by Delilah Devlin to be included in the Rogues Collection!!!

6 Days: Protecting Her by Regina Kammer ?>

6 Days: Protecting Her by Regina Kammer

Vikings in Byzantium Let’s just get this out of the way, but the History Channel’s production of Vikings has given a sexy cachet to the fiercest warriors of the Middle Ages. When Delilah put out a call for stories in a Viking erotic romance anthology, my heart just went pitter-pat with excitement. And then the excitement sort of dissipated. My knowledge of Vikings is limited given their era is out of my purview. My field of study is Late Roman…

Keeping Sex Between the Covers ?>

Keeping Sex Between the Covers

It’s June 14th and in the United States we’re celebrating Flag Day! I have a special promotion for June (Flag Day month) and July (Independence Day month). See the end of this post! I generally write historical erotic romance, although I have also written contemporary, mythological, and Steampunk. But my comfort zone is historicals because I’m a historian and, I suppose, I’ve internally fetishized history to a certain extent. I’ve written stories that take place in ancient Roman and Victorian…

Write What You Know: Paranormal Edition ?>

Write What You Know: Paranormal Edition

Beginning writers are often advised to “write what you know,” that way words and stories and emotions will resound authentically. The general public has glommed on to this aphorism and often conflates “write what you know” with “write your actual lived experience”. Erotica and erotic romance writers especially fall victim to this definition. We get a lot of “heh, heh” “snicker, snicker” at parties and such, because of course we’ve all done every blessed thing our characters have done. Sigh….

Better Sex in 50 Years? ?>

Better Sex in 50 Years?

Hello to you on this wonderful Friday! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Liz Ashworth. I write scandalous stories. I occasionally write something that’s not scandalous but who cares? About twenty years ago, I had this idea for a story. At the time, my life centered around raising children and keeping up with my job. My idea? I wanted to create a world where women could buy sex. Go to a safe place, nice opulent surroundings, review the lineup, and…

9 Days: On My Honor by Beatrix Ellroy

I’m Beatrix Ellroy, I write erotica for fun and I have to admit, On My Honor was one of the more fun. No high minded research ideals here, just one very strong memory and one very strong image. The Memory: one year at my local Ye Olde Medieval Faire (authenticity may vary) I stood transfixed at one of the Celtic lifestyle groups hosted a bare blade bout. It was the 90s, this kind of thing still happened. One of the…

11 Days: Invasion of Nefyn by Lizzie Ashworth

Hunky Warriors — who can resist? Sexy romance stories are a perfect match with historical scenes and characters. Both take us far away from today and the daily grind of our lives. That’s what we expect from any entertainment media, and Hot Highlanders, Wild Warriors delivers the goods. What a great bunch of stories! My inspiration for “Invasion of Nefyn” was triggered by reading historic novels by Bernard Cornwell. Details of daily life command just as much of the reader’s…

Sabrina York Sparks a Five Alarm Fire!

I am so excited about Five Alarm Fire, my contribution to the High Octane Heroes Anthology. In my opinion, there’s nothing hotter than a man who wants you for exactly who you are. Unless, of course, he is a sexy fireman…and wants you for exactly who you are. In my short story, Trish is a little shy around men. She’s convinced no one really hot would ever want her. But when Luke gets a look at her generous curves and…
