Firstly I really to apologise to those of you who received this earlier. it was quite a new departure with wordpress to press publish and have a post wiped. The drafts too. That was after binning several because the media wasn’t showing. Anyway, this week is the biggie in the Rom writers’ calendar. So I’m shelving the films right now in favour of getting ready for
when the above good ladies are going to share first kiss extracts from one of their books. Plus what happens next AND is it love or lust, the million dollar question?
Instead I want to go back to the
.the following lovely ladies I passed the baton to last week now have their posts up by the way…

I may have talked why I write what I write but that was more how I fell into it to break into the market. What I want to talk is why I write sex. It comes up in the conversation and reactions are mixed. Some folks like to …….
‘Yes, but do people really want that?’ One erstwhile wanna- be- a- writer- and -I -know- everything- about- it mate interestingly wanted to know. Another family member needed to know that I didn’t use words like…you know.. (I didn’t. Know that is. She might have meant different ones.) My daughters probably think…
Although of course a lot think…
I’m not saying I have a burning need to do that which is why I try not to be gratuitous. HONEST.
Oh okay there’s seven scenes in my new release
That still doesn’t make me gratuitous. Just a believer in the fact if you shut the bedroom door you’re not getting that glimpse of your hero and heroine. And I’m not meaning if they’re hawt stuff between the sheets, smexy as hell, or not. I’m talking their hopes, fears, dreams, emotional involvement. Not only do I believe you can’t separate these things, don’t tell me sex is not a fabulously powerful bargaining counter.
In Loving Lady Lazuli, we have a man who is a roué. A woman whose experience isn’t what you might think. All he quickly wants is to end his inconvenient, getting in the way of his thirst for revenge, fascination for her. He never wants a woman for more than one night. So he’s hundred percent sure that’s what’s going to happen. he’s pretty certain it will be good too…
‘ She was London’s premier jewel thief. Was he meant to believe she wasn’t equally skilled in the bedroom? ‘
But because she is— the premier jewel thief that is –she hates to be owned. She will also die rather than seem less than what she is, than look stupid in any regard. Some of these seven are a disaster. He can’t believe the mess even he starts to make of these ones as the battle for control, who has it and who wants it back, hots up.
What I’m really looking at how a man like that could want a woman like this in the long term and how we can be assured of that HEA because I’ve never bought the idea that someone who knows their stuff could be satisfied with someone who doesn’t.
As for the bargaining counter bit. Well, of course Sapphire is going to turn that round on Hawley after he gives her the ultimatum about being his mistress or dangling on the end of a rope. She’s too smart not to the second she learns his life threatening secret and you can guess what her own ultimatum involves. I call it
When it comes to women getting what they want, to return to my first picture, as this little progression clearly demonstrates, we learn at an early age…But now she gets the racerby fair means or foul…..He tries to look dead chuffed about how badly he’s been had with that grotty dinky toy…….
