Well today is a special day because I'm ecstatic to welcome the Three Wicked Writers! I begged and pleaded for them to guest blog here because I love their blog and books, I'm just kidding. Well I actually asked Kelly Nyrae if she and her two other wicked writers Regina Carlysle and Anne Rainey would like to guest blog here and they told me today was the day they could make it. Well lets get it started with Anne Rainey, who is here to start talking about erotic romance!
Ah, erotic romance, what a wonderful expression of love. I’m proud to live in a country where we can express ourselves so freely! Sexuality is something to embrace, not hide.
Let me get this out of the way first, and then we can move on. The number one type of erotica or erotic romance for me is an m/f story. It needs to have lots of sexual tension, graphic love scenes and maybe even some toys thrown in for fun. Yum! Now, let’s talk about the types I’ll never read nor write.
1.) Stories that involve several men and one woman. I know there are some very talented authors out there who write these types of stories and that’s great, but it’s not my personal taste.
2.) I’m not crazy about ménages where the 3 of them live happily ever after. Why? Because I’m too possessive. LOL I can’t imagine sharing my hubby with another. Maybe (and I stress maybe) for one night, but for life? Nope. Therefore fantasizing (or reading) about such a scenario leaves me cold.
3.) A big pet peeve of mine is a rape or a rape/kidnapping scene that disguises itself as “forced seduction”. It makes me cringe. There’s nothing exciting or sexy about being forced.
4.) This is where I waffle a bit. Female/female stories. So not for me! Then again, I can feel myself thinking that maybe someday that could change. Maybe. I’m sort of up in the air about it right now.
5.) Something that I know is fairly popular is extreme FEM DOM stories. Again I know some very lovely authors who write these types of stories, but it’s not something that gets my own engines running. I think you have to be very passionate about it in order to do it justice and I’m just not. What can I say? I crave those hot Alpha males! hehe!
Regina says... As a writer who does hot and hotter, I have particular likes and dislikes in others' writing and my own. I've gotta say I don't understand the current popularity of m/m and f/f by hetero women who love romance. Now, I'm not a homophobe by any stretch of the imagination but I like to write what I KNOW and I don't know a whole helluva lot about m/m and f/f sex. Color me ignorant. I just don't understand why hetero women would enjoy it. Is it the promise of something completely different? I just don't know.
Admittedly, just today I did a scene featuring a little m/m touching in a ménage scene I was doing. It was an experiment to see if I could test the limits and wow, what a complete and utter newb I am with this stuff. A little bit, I guess is okay but would I lay down cold hard cash to read a completely gay erotica? Nope. Not in a million years. I firmly believe one should grab love and enjoy it in whatever form it takes. Yes, I'm for gay marriage and all the rights that come with it. However, I am not gay and wouldn't enjoy reading or writing it as a rule.
Kelley says… Confession time! I’ve only been reading erotic romance for a little over a year now. I’ve read spicy romance for a few years now but the erotic part came later J. Over the past year I’ve devoured tons of erotic romance. I love the graphic scenes, love watching women admit their sexual fantasies, and like with all romance I have to have my happily ever after. There are a few things that just don’t do it for me. One is Fem Dom. I love sexy Alpha males too much. I like a strong heroine as well but the hero has to be stronger. Another thing that just doesn’t do it for me is happily ever after threesomes, or more. Now I love a good ménage just like the next girl but going back to my Alpha male thing I can’t see a guy sharing their woman forever. I know I couldn’t share my man forever. A fun romp while on vacation is different, fulfilling a fantasy is okay as well. I just don’t like the whole happily ever after thing along with it.
Well that’s all from your Wicked Writers for today. What about you? Is there any kind of erotic romance that you just can’t handle?

  2. Hi Phoebe...BIG WAVES!!! Thanks for having us. I've actually done TWO menages at this point and I was really nervous about it but they came out okay and are both contracted so I must've done SOMETHING right. BUT...I don't have a threesome forever thing going on. That doesn't seem realistic to me. I have a HEA between the main h/h which I can really wrap my head around.

    A friend of mine...who ROCKS, does a lot of threesome forever but she does it in a fantasy context. The way she does it really works.

  3. My fav would be m/f of course, but I don't mind the m/f/m scenes. Some authors can really write the menage to be completely sensual and erotic. I love the fantasy of two men really letting the female embrace her sexuality and all the feelings that go with it.

    I really don't enjoy m/m or f/f at all and that is something I've been seeing lots of lately. I also hate degradation in any form. I remember one of my fav authors recently had a book out that made me cringe when the female was made to sleep on the floor and some other stuff I can't remember right off.

    I also have to have a HEA - it's not romance if it doesn't let me know the h/h have their future together.

  4. Lisa--degradation...ugh. I know what you mean. I read one recently that made me so mad I had to put the book down. That's not romantic.

    I will say this. If you don't like f/f touching, don't read my upcoming release with Samhain, Burn. LOL! It has a f/f/m scene, though it's a m/f HEA. ;-)

    Phoebe--Thanks so much for giving the THREE WICKED WRITERS a chance to chat today!

  5. Well Anne and Regina I'm very happy that you agreed to guest blog. It's such a pleasure having wonderful guest bloggers like you ladies. I love your blog and the wonderful topics you ladies come up with.

    We should do this again some time soon.

  6. I'm with you, Lisa. It sooo rocks to read of a woman being lavished with all that attention. What a fantasy, huh?

    Nope. No ick factor for me although I think, these days, most pubs have strong taboos about that. They won't even look at stuff like that.

    Remember once reading a very famous author who had a "dog collar" on her heroine as punishment. Yeah,it was historical but I just hated that.

  7. Hey Phoebe! thanks for having us!!

    Regina- You're an amazing writer. Of course your books were contracted.

    Anne- We have so much in common with what we like and don't like in books.

    Lisa-
    I totally forgot to put that. I hated degradation of any kind!

  8. Since I started reading romance just a few short years ago, I've dove headfirst into trying a variety of genres to get a sample of what is out there.

    Have not found anything yet genre-wise that I do not like. Some books I've found are so-so but that's a whole different story.

    I must admit that a book in first person POV must be a very well written book to keep my attention.

    Carpe Noctem,

  9. Des--I'm curious what you'll think of my upcoming release, Burn. It's in first person POV and it's highly erotic.

    Not sure I'll do it again, it was tough! But it was a fun experiment!

About Me

My Photo
Phoebe Jordan
I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre.
 
I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books.

I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
