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…

The Star – Tahira Iqbal ?>

The Star – Tahira Iqbal

I put a lot of thought into the type of hero that I wanted when I started to research The Star. He had to have lightening sharp reflexes, a command of steel and a presence so sure that you were instantly comforted or terrified. Luckily in this case, it’s the former. So if I knew this guy could take care of a billion dollar jet, I knew that Estella was going to be in good hands. I shiver as the…

Bringing it, with Sidney Bristol

Hello hunky hot hero fans! Anyone else excited about the upcoming anthology?? I am! When I heard the call for a “high octane hero” I thought of the kind of person who could save the day—even with one arm tied behind his back. That was where I started, but not where the story ends. Once Upon a Time in Mukdahan touches on the time I spent living in Thailand and my personal visit to Mukdahan, which is a large city on…

Megan Mitcham: Under the Sheets

In my previous post, Beyond the Bedroom Door, I blogged about my rather innocent introduction into the world of erotic romance. …while researching authors in a writing group I contemplated joining (and did later join…DSRA) I clicked on DD’s link and turned beet red. I couldn’t believe the excerpt I read. Raw. Passionate. Sexy. And, at the time, way out of my comfort zone. Remember, I had no idea the genre existed. This was before erotic romance could be found…

UK vs US ?>

UK vs US

There’s nothing like a cowboy in the UK.  We don’t have anything as powerfully iconic as this historic and symbolic figure from the US. So, I guess that’s what drew me to the answer the submission call; could a Brit writer take on the all American cowboy and make it work? The storm arrives with wild abandon, twisting and turning, gray fury  unleashing torrential rain that blurs the horizon. “I don’t think you should drive in this weather, Candace!” my…
