Great Sex: The Scenes I Can’t Forget

As we approach Valentine’s Day weekend, it seemed like a good time to share some of my favorite sex scenes. I thought I had this in the bag because I do have a small collection in my head. I could have chosen the down and dirty ones, but as I was going through the reel in my head, I realized that sexually explicit, raunchy romps aren’t always the most memorable. I love sex scenes when they’re the culmination of a particularly emotional moment between the hero and heroine, or when there’s some humor mixed in. So, in no particular order, I’d like to share a few of my favorites. ** warning explicit content.

Sylvain Reynard on GABRIEL’S INFERNO, THE RAVEN, and E.L. James

One of the great mysteries of the work of Sylvain Reynard is, well, Sylvain Reynard. Pseudonyms are common in romance writing, and no one ever questions them, yet people are curious about this author because they have never seen a photo. Contact is always through representatives. We know this author hails from Canada, and many accounts tell us that Reynard identifies as a male. Today we learn more...

KALEIDOSCOPE by Kristen Ashley

I read my first Kristen Ashley book earlier this year. It was a strange reading experience. I’m not normally one for the big, brawny alpha heroes, but something about her writing is really compelling, and I kept turning those pages, unable to put the book down. I joked that there was actual crack-cocaine woven into the pages and I had to keep going back to get my fix. So when this book was up for review, I jumped at it.

PLAY ME Series by Tracy Wolff

Anytime I find a series that takes place in Las Vegas, I pick it up to see what sins are better left in Vegas. But this serial is a bit different. The characters aren’t visitors to Vegas; instead they’re residents who know the seedier side of Vegas and how that seedier side can ruin a person.

PLAY ME series by Tracy Wolff

"This series is actually a group of serial novellas (an e-serial) that I can promise you right now, will melt your panties. There’s a reason why the titles are words like, Wild, Hot, Hard, Real and Right. Let me break this down for you without giving too much away. (And all novellas are available now.)"

SOME LIKE IT HOT: Erotica Picks

This month I’m highlighting what I would call “literary” erotica. To some, that may sound like a paradox. However, sometimes the complex story an author wants to tell simply calls for more sex than is typically found in mainstream novels. I think you’ll find that the novels I’m sharing with you this month have more depth that the typical erotic story.

I BELONG TO YOU by Lisa Renee Jones

Master... Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need...her.

BEFORE WE FALL by Courtney Cole

One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide's world black. On the night of his high school graduation, a single incident changed him forever, and he became a hardened man-famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured inside. Now all he cares about is losing himself in the roles that he plays. At twenty-three years old, Jacey Vincent doesn't realize how much her father's indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn't one specific moment that wrecks a person, but an absence of moments. She tries to find acceptance in the arms of men to fill the void-a plan that has worked just fine for her, until she meets Dominic.
