8 Days: Wicked by Susannah Chapin

8 Days: Wicked by Susannah Chapin

I GET KNOCKED DOWN…BUT I GET UP AGAIN Semi-obnoxious 90’s song stuck in your head? You can thank me later. 😉 So, about a year ago, life knocked me down pretty hard. (Okay, let’s do a synchronized “Awww.” It’ll be the “Awww” of communal misery. Ready? One, two, three…”Awww.” Excellent, thanks y’all. Now we can move on.) There was some serious personal stuff going down that wasn’t pretty or fun, and most days it was an accomplishment just to get…

9 Days: On My Honor by Beatrix Ellroy

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…

10 Days: Pleasure in Surrender by Delilah Devlin (Contest)

10 Days: Pleasure in Surrender by Delilah Devlin (Contest)

“Pleasure in Surrender” isn’t my first foray into a story with a historical setting. But it is the first “pure” historical I’ve written. In Jacq’s Warlord, my sister Myla Jackson and I wrote about a woman who time-traveled back to medieval England. Rufus, our hero, was very much a man of his time. Dealing with Jacq called for a little license—we couldn’t allow poor Rufus to beat her for her many infractions. And she did need to lead a castle defense…

14 Days: The Maiden’s Kiss by Layla Chase (Contest)

14 Days: The Maiden’s Kiss by Layla Chase (Contest)

Strong Women Know What They Want I’m a feminist. I studied feminist theology in college, minored in Women’s Studies (after all, that was during the 1970s) and taught my daughters they have a voice. So when I started writing romance, I created heroines who expect to be listened to, ones who are smart and knowledgeable (sometimes, they had to be sneaky to do this). As much as possible, my heroines don’t make put-my-life-in-danger stupid choices, but they may risk all for…

Why Highlanders Blow my Kilt…Er, Skirt Up

Why Highlanders Blow my Kilt…Er, Skirt Up

When I was fourteen, my cousin, the talented R.B. Hilliard, asked me to cat-sit for her while she was out of town. Over the course of the week or so that I was on the job, I overfed the cat who was supposed to be on a diet, forgot to change the litter box and failed to mail the stack of bills I was specifically asked to take care of….Oooops. What I did manage to accomplish during those cat-sitting days…

The More Things Change…

The More Things Change…

I know humans have evolved, that technology is constantly upgrading, and styles and mores change, but I also believe that the emotions, reactions and conflicts that drive change and cause tensions aren’t much different than they were when we lived in caves. Curiosity, envy, love, happiness, sadness, etc. are all a part of the human condition, as are their uglier alter-egos nosiness, jealousy, obsession, mania and depression. All that has changed are the surroundings and the tools we have to…
