Erotic Romance

Inspired By The Night By L.E. May

Blog Diva - Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Technology is everywhere these days. We use it in just about everything we do and we’ve found digital alternatives to everything – the trusty vinyl record is gathering dust in the attic while everyone listens to MP3 files. VHS got thrown on the scrap heap by DVDs which in turn are mournfully shaking their fists at the MP4, and in literature the paperback has been joined by the ebook.

Technology and communications have made it possible to do just about everything from your sofa. We can buy our groceries online and get them delivered to our door. We can share our holiday photos with everyone we know, all at once through social networks. We write electronic letters to our family and friends and we don’t even have to be in the same country to have a face to face conversation with someone.

I work in digital media and as my staff get younger and more tech savvy the more I find a reluctance in people to want to communicate physically. Text messages, Snapchat, Email, Facebook, Twitter…all perfectly acceptable methods of communication. But pick up a phone and speak to someone? Well now that requires a good ten minutes of mental preparation to overcome the nerves of actually talking to a real person. Read More

The Alphabet Game: The complete Alpha Series A to X,Y,Z By Andie M. Long

Blog Diva - Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Excerpt: From Novella 1 to avoid spoilers.

Getting sexually accosted in Starbucks wasn’t on my to-do list.

My stiletto heels were sharp, like the angles of my razor cut bob and one tapped on the floor as I stood in line, impatient to get my hands on a Latte. The intense aromas in the shop made me crave my morning drink even more. I’d not had time for one before I’d left my apartment this morning, anxious to be punctual for my appointment. I stared ahead at the menu board, careful to avoid catching anyone else’s eye. My lips with their natural pout, enhanced by rose gloss, smacked together as I anticipated my interview at Gregory & Sons, a firm of Solicitors in Westminster in just shy of an hour’s time. Every time I thought of it, butterflies tingled in my stomach.

Lost in the menu, I jump as a warm body brushes past my own, so close I can identify him as male. I turn around, a flash of fire in my cheeks, eyes narrowing.

‘I must apologise, I completely misjudged how to get past.’

I take in the businessman in front of me, holding his drink with a firm hand. His laptop bag hangs over a broad shoulder. Dark brown hair curls around the nape of his neck, like he’s so damn sexy even his hair wants to cop a feel, and his icy grey eyes indicate the casualness of his apology, echoed in his mocking tone.

I tuck my long fringe behind my ear and turn back to face the front. I’m better off just ignoring the creep, hot or not. Read More

Age Of Innocence By Eliza Lloyd

Blog Diva - Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Thank you RomCon for having me at your blog – I love talking romance, history and erotica to anyone who will listen.

I am watching FIFA World Cup soccer today and admiring the fit, beautiful men who seem to be part of every team. Historical writers also enjoy writing about fit, beautiful men of the time. Whether they boxed at Gentleman Jackson’s Pugilist Club, raced curricles in Brighton or hunted foxes in Derbyshire, our ton gentlemen were usually first rate sportsmen. We don’t always write about their pursuits but it is assumed that in addition to their ability to waltz perfectly, win big at the gaming tables and dazzle every woman of their acquaintance, our historical gents have it all. They could probably play soccer too, if necessary.

So let me tell you about my latest, Book Three in the Mad Duchesses series, titled Age of Innocence. My dear Ferdinand Ford is a ton gentleman and all around sportsman. But he has a secret.

I know we writers tend to portray our Regency men as rakes and scoundrels. Ferd has a small supporting role in the Wicked Affairs series and I knew at some point I was going to write about him – I just didn’t know his back-story until Lettie came to life as a widow looking for love after two unsuccessful marriages. Read More

Ingénue by Alexandra Christian

Blog Diva - Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Thanks so much to the RomCon® Erotica blog for having me today. I’m very excited, as I’m an avid reader of the RomCon blog, so it’s a bit of a thrill to be able to be here. I’m here today touting my newest release with Ellora’s Cave. It’s a short and sexy historical called “Ingenue.” It’s a tale of the Golden Age of Vaudeville when folks flocked to dancehalls and theaters to see singers, dancers, bawdy comedians and sexy stripteasers. When I originally pitched this idea to my editor over at Ellora’s, she loved the idea and asked me that one question that authors answer ad nauseum: “Where do you get your ideas?” Especially the ones that are so far removed from your real life? Just a heads up, I’m not a burlesque dancer from the 1920s. I know… hard to believe. Anyway, I thought I’d talk a little about my greatest inspirations. Read More

Night of the Horse from Elodie Parkes

Blog Diva - Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Hi, thank you for inviting me here to talk about my hot new Evernight release, ‘Night of the Horse’.

The inspiration for the book came from seeing a paddock with more than thirty horses grazing in it. I have to travel sometimes with my job, and there’s a particular route I need to take to get to one part of the county. It takes me through beautiful countryside and past what I believe is the back of a horse stud. The first time I saw the paddock full of horses they were dotted about grazing. It’s a massive grassy area that slopes upwards to a hedgerow. I slowed my Jeep right down to look at the horses, but another vehicle suddenly came along on the country road and I had to drive on. On my way back, I hoped to see the horse again, but they were gone.

When I was asked to go that way again for work, I took my camera, hoping to photograph the horses, because they are all different colors and sizes, and very lovely. Read More

THE SHEIK RETOLD Victoria Vane & E.M. Hull

Blog Diva - Wednesday, October 02, 2013

The Desert Was Never Hotter!

A haughty young heiress for whom the world is a playground… A savage son of the Sahara who knows no law but his own…When pride and passion vie for supremacy, blistering desert days are nothing compared to sizzling Sahara nights…

EXCERPT
Blinded and bound to his bed, I lay quiet and still, as silent tears scorched my cheeks. I was supremely defenseless, and I hated and feared this utter vulnerability.

"Doucement, doucement," he repeated in the same soothing tones he had used on his fretful horse. "It is not what you think, ma chère ."

I could not think at all. I trembled. I raged. I wept. But rational thought was far beyond me. My brain was completely numb, but my senses seemed only to sharpen. I was tense, drawn taut, every nerve thrumming on full alert, keenly aware of him—the soft tread of his feet, the rustling of his movements.  Read More
