Before we dive right in to the joys of writing mouth-watering smut, I’d like to first say thank you to Erotica for All, for allowing me the privilege to guest blog. I appreciate you setting a post aside for me.
Now, about that mouth-watering smut!
My name is Ava Riley, and I have been writing for as long as I can remember. It wasn’t until someone introduced me to Paranormal Romance about three years ago, that I decided to step out of my box and comfort zone to try my hand at something a little steamier. As I began to write my first novel, A Lifetime to Find Love, which came out on April 6th, I realized that not only could I write a love story mixed with hot crazy sex, but that I truly enjoyed unleashing the freak within. For me, adding the element of sex can only add to the relationship that has already developed between two characters or that is in the process of development. Okay, honestly, sex just adds to the pleasures of life period, doesn’t it? That is why so many of us women like to pick up a good naughty book and sail away to never-never land. However, as within the “cover” of A Lifetime to Find Love, Cade and Tessa have known each other practically their whole lives, so it was like a “coming home” for the both of them when they finally gave in to the physical urges they had been keeping in check. The emotions shared between these two, is heartwarming, but the sex is intensified because of it and it is more than ELECTRIFYING. I found, even as I wrote it, that I wanted them to have more and more sex, so when things really get hot and heavy with these two, the voyeur in me clapped uncontrollably.
While writing A Lifetime to Find Love, I really never envisioned writing a sequel, but that’s what happened. Sacred Surrender is the follow up novel and will be released on June 29, 2011. In SS, Rowan’s (the brother to Tessa) story is told. After having his life turned upside down by a crazy ex-fiancé, he vows to never love again. At least, until a knock on his door one morning reveals the most beautiful woman he has laid eyes on ~ Madison. I couldn’t allow Rowan to go through life with a broken heart. The man is absolutely scrumptious and with a heart of gold, he makes any woman have to run from the room to change her panties. Madison, a Mid-Westerner who has moved to beautiful California for a job, finds herself face to face with the only man who has made heat pool between her thighs from just a smile. Innocent and naïve Madison had no idea how turned around her life would become from a simple knock on a neighbor’s door. These two bring deep felt emotions, along with “burn up the pages” sex that makes me glad to be a voyeur.
As with A Lifetime to Find Love, Sacred Surrender will be available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Allromanceebooks.com.
