Giddyup!: Joley Sue Burkhart On Discovering Pony Play

BY , JULY 23, 2013 | PERMALINK

Readers know that when they pick up an erotic romance, there's a good chance it may come with a heavy dose of kink. But this goes beyond just BDSM. One aspect of kinkery that is rarely explored by erotic romance writers is pony play. An act of dominance and submission, pony play is exactly what it sounds like: the submissive partner acting as a pony and the dominant partner acting as the rider/trainer. Joley Sue Burkhart is one of the few authors who has dared to explore this subject and she's here to tell us what sparked her interest in pony play and why she felt it fit perfectly into her erotic science fiction tale, Her Grace's Stable.

It's all Anne Rice's fault. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Marina Anderson's The Dining Club

BY , JULY 10, 2013 | PERMALINK

Serialized novels are the latest hot publishing trend, and when it comes to erotic romance many publishers are experimenting with this new way of digitally releasing chapters of a book over the course of several weeks. Today, we're happy to share with you the covers of the first two installments of Forever Romance's first serialized erotic romance, The Dining Club by Marina Anderson, a pseudonym for British mystery writer Margaret Bingley (who also writes erotic romance as Fredrica Alleyn).



   

Forever made the decision of going with tastefully modest, yet alluring, object covers that genre fans have come to know and love. A detailed door handle with a key turned in the door's lock adorns part one, "Desire," as if to invite readers into an unknown world, while "Bound" gives us a possible clue as to what you can find behind the door. What kind of world can readers expect from Anderson? Check out the story's description:

You are invited to the Dining Club.

Christina Lauren On How Distance Makes Their Books Hotter

BY , JULY 08, 2013 | PERMALINK

For authors Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, aka writing duo Christina Lauren, writing their fun, sexy, NYC-set erotic romance series can be a bit of a challenge — especially when it comes to living far apart. So how do two authors make a long-distance writing relationship work? Today they share how they wrote Beautiful Stranger hundreds of miles apart, and what they did when they encountered a manuscript "terror." Plus, we offer a free downloadable excerpt from their upcoming novella, "Beautiful Bitch" at the end of this post!

We sometimes joke about the tattoos we’re going to get — a classy tramp stamp of ripped panties, or a depiction of sex in a public bathroom — but all joking aside, the tattoo we’ll probably get is simply “Geography Sucks.”

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Christine D'Abo's Choose Your Shot

BY , JUNE 27, 2013 | PERMALINK

Remember those fun “Choose Your Own Adventure” books from your childhood and how exciting it was to be in control of the story? Well, fasten your seatbelts because Christine D’Abo’s upcoming novel Choose Your Shot gives readers an interactive story with a very erotic twist, and we have an exclusive look at the book’s cover!

But first, let’s tell you a little bit about the book:

When Tegan receives an invite to the reopening of a BDSM club, she can’t wait to satisfy her needs that have been ignored for too long. But which man and pleasures should she choose? Readers will get to explore the club’s many seductions through Tegan and ultimately decide how her story ends. Are you ready to play?

Not only does the book sound exhilarating, but the cover is sensational! With a simple, yet evocative background, the cover features Tegan in some very skimpy clothing. While her back is to the reader, she is certainly no wilting flower. Her arched pose and come-hither look screams confidence. The author says that this is the absolute perfect depiction of her character.

You Are Cordially Invited: Same-Sex Couples From Romance Novels We’d Love to See Married!

BY , JUNE 27, 2013 | PERMALINK

With the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act and enabling wedded same-sex couples eligible for federal benefits, yesterday marked a monumental step toward achieving marriage equality. Additionally, Prop 8 was also rescinded, making it legal for gays and lesbians to marry in the state of California. 

Here at RT Book Reviews, we’d like to celebrate these important strides in equlity by taking a look at our favorite fictional gay and lesbian couples, ones we’d love to see be married! After all, love does not discriminate and everyone deserves a happy ending!

First up we have Hollywood producer Kyle Wakefield and stunt-man Nathan Carnes from Katie Porter’s Came Upon a Midnight Clear, a sizzling read that was a 2012 RT Book of the Year Nominee! Kyle and Nathan’s chemistry light up the pages and their struggles — both internal and external — certainly pave the way for a well-deserved happy ending. And we can’t help but think they would look rather dashing in matching tuxedos for their nuptials.

Spoiled: Eden Bradley's New BDSM Series - Dangerously Bound

BY , JUNE 20, 2013 | PERMALINK

Spoiled shares a look at the books you can't wait to read, long before they hit stores. Today author Eden Bradley gives RT readers a peek inside her new BDSM series, Dangerously Bound, before the first book of the same name hits stores in 2014. Get her take on creating a series set in beautiful New Orleans, writing a hero wrapped up in rope play and what readers can expect from Dangerously Bound!

***

If we had to guess based on the name, we'd say your upcoming Dangerously Bound series might have a BDSM focus. Are we right (and do we get a prize)? What can you tell us about the series?

Yes, the Dangerous Series books will all have a strong BDSM theme, including the first in the series, Dangerously Bound.

The series takes place in New Orleans, one of my favorite cities. I love it for the food, the music, the architecture, and that sense of lush sensuality in the air — it seemed a perfect location for this series. Although my heroes are all Scottish and Irish the city plays a big part in the tone of the books, and in the family histories of all my heroines, starting with Alessandra ‘Allie’ LeClair.

Rhyannon Byrd On How To Seduce A Detective ... And Make Him Work For It!

BY , JUNE 14, 2013 | PERMALINK

You gotta love an erotic romance hero with a dangerous job — FBI agent, undercover cop, special ops agent — nothing says sexy like a man willing to take a risk. But what about a man who refuses to take a risk with his heart? In Rhyannon Byrd's latest release, Take Me Under, the last thing on homicide detective Ben's mind is commitment, so how does heroine Reese win him over? Today the author shares how Reese — and you — can seduce a detective in 5 easy steps!

I love to write heroes who are rough, rugged, and as alpha as they come, and former Miami homicide detective Ben Hudson is one of my all-time favorites. Ben is the hero in my newest release, Take Me Under, and at the start of the book a relationship is the LAST thing he’s looking for. He’s smart, sexy, and seen as a genuinely great guy by his family and friends. But...and this is a BIG one: this guy would rather fall out of a plane or lose a kidney than fall in love.
