TURNING THE TIDE (A SIREN’S REVENGE SERIES, BOOK #25 WICCAN HAUS SERIES)
How did you start writing erotica?
As a teenager, I’d written some non-erotic fanfic, and that was probably my first foray into writing in general. In college, I wrote a couple erotic original stories and posted them on a website, but then life happened (as it tends to do!), and I abandoned writing for a number of years.
Eventually, I waded back into the writing waters with my old love, fanfic. Then before leaving for my honeymoon, I loaded up my Kindle with a ton of books to read on the beach. One erotic novella I read had me saying “THIS got published?! I can write just as well, if not better!” When we got home, I got right to work and set out to get some erotica published. Luckily, within a few months, I found success!

Falling for her Navy SEAL… Again by Clarissa Yip is a great second-chance romance. It tells the story of Navy SEAL Matt Hunt, who’s been injured on a mission so is currently on R&R. While at home, he bumps into Jenesi, who is both his best friend’s sister, and the girl he has the hots for. Last time they saw each other, something happened between them, and then Matt had to leave.
Jenesi, determined not to let Matt make a fool of her again, tries to keep him at arm’s length. But Matt’s equally determined to win her over. But is he just looking for another fling before he returns to duty, or something more long-term?
This is a great, well-written romance with some smouldering sex scenes. I hadn’t read anything by this author before, but based on this, I’ll definitely consider checking out more of her books. Recommended.
A Model Hero is book nine in the multi-author Calendar Men series. This standalone story is about BBW Gretchen Meyers. She’s a full-figured woman who is often surrounded by model “perfect” people, due to her mother’s job running a modelling agency. Unfortunately for Gretchen, her mother’s agency isn’t doing so well, and means her mother is currently crashing at her place. Eager to get her mother back on her feet and out of her house, Gretchen vows to help. All she needs to do is get one of her mother’s clients to agree to take on some jobs, and things will be moving in the right direction. But said client, Kyle Ramsey, isn’t so keen…
Can she persuade him? Or is her nagging, criticising mother going to be stuck in her apartment for ever more?
I enjoy a good BBW story, and A Model Hero is no exception. I really liked the main character, Gretchen, and found myself rooting for her throughout. The storyline is interesting and different, the writing engaging and the sex scenes scorching. If you’re looking for a great contemporary romance story with lashings of heat, check this out.
