Third novella under consideration...eekk!!

Thrilled by a Second Acceptance – Will I get a third?

I am fairly newbie erotic romance writer, having only recently had my first novella published by The Wild Rose Press last year. Explicitly English was my first story and my lovely editor patiently helped me learn more and more about writing erotic romance fiction as opposed to writing mainstream romance. And believe me, I learned a lot!

The key ingredient for both writer and reader of erotic romance is red-hot sensuality – the sexual tension between the couple, the physical and mental sensations they arouse in each other, the tastes, smells and sights they experience when they are together is paramount in creating an erotic and thrilling atmosphere in which we can completely lose ourselves.

The difference a reader wants when they choose to buy an erotic romance rather than a mainstream romance is not the sex but the ‘no holds barred’ erotic experience the heroine and hero are living through. The reader doesn’t necessarily want every vivid, technical detail of what is happening to be conveyed to them – who wants to read about endless genitalia and bouncing bosoms, when they would rather ‘feel’ what the hero or heroine is feeling?

They want the sensations – they want to be squirming on their seat or fidgeting in their bed. They want to be turned on. Hopefully turned on enough to turn to their partner and demand to be taken care of, yum! To me, this can only happen if they are inside the heroine or hero and riding the wave right along with them.

I hope this is what I achieve in my writing and will keep on achieving it. Every writer worries that once they sold book number one, they won’t sell number two and on it goes. As for me? Well, I have sold two erotic romance novella to The Wild Rose Press and they are currently considering the third…wish me luck! In the meantime, here is the blurb for my current release “Coming Back”, enjoy!


Kelly Hampton loved once...and lost. After two years of looking for Sean MacKenzie in other men--and failing miserably--she takes a vow of celibacy. No sex until she finds love. Then Sean strolls back into her bar, reigniting old flames. No one has come close to understanding or satisfying her like he did. Her body burns for the passion they once shared, but her heart still remembers the pain.

Sean escaped Jessop Hill and his father's fists in the middle of the night without a word--even to his love, Kelly--to protect his battered mother, but he never forgot the explosively erotic relationship he left behind. Now his father is dead and Sean is back for the only woman he's ever wanted. Their reunion is full of fire – but can sexual attraction and noble intentions overcome years of heartache or will Kelly walk away to protect her heart this time.
