Adriana Kraft is the pen name for a happily married pair of hopeless romantics who love to read and write hot sex. By day they’re serious academics with backgrounds in social science and human services. At night? Possibilities seem endless and they love coming out to play. Their erotic romance novels celebrate more than consensual mind-blowing sex – they feature strong story lines, heroes and heroines you’ll fall in love with, passion, and profound connectedness.
Adriana’s specialty is bisexual heroines. Their stories lift up the dilemmas faced by women who deeply want it both ways but won’t be denied the right to commitment, true love and a happy ending, sometimes with more than one special partner. While that may sound serious, it also permits them to get into swinging, voyeurism and ménage, great opportunities for being playful. It’s rather challenging at times to describe all the possible entanglements.
Longtime social activists, they like to take on stereotypes and challenge social barriers of all kinds, so it should be no surprise when their characters do the same. Ageism is near the top of their list. They think sizzling sex isn’t just for the young. Though they write characters in their early twenties, they have heroes and heroines in their forties, fifties and beyond.
Something else special is that they’re writing for both genders, offering scenes that partners might enjoy together. They often read scenes they’ve written out loud as part of foreplay, and they hope their readers will, too – or, as one reviewer suggested, keep “a bucket of toys close at hand!” It may take longer to finish the book, but Adriana believes a good book is meant to be savored.
