Thanks to Danielle for inviting me here today! And be sure to comment for your chance to win one of my backlist erotic contemporary e-books! See what's available from me at www.cariquinn.com (which is woefully out of date and due to be redesigned soon!)
I admit it, I'm partial to sexy scenes in books. Why? Well, honestly, sex is fun. It gets the blood pumping, brings people closer together, relieves stress, helps people to forget their problems - though admittedly it sometimes brings up all new ones ;) - and allows people to learn more about themselves through what they enjoy. What's not to like?
As an erotic writer, my sex scenes are usually pretty hot. I don't close the door or pull up the bedsheet and I don't use purple prose or euphemisms for body parts. The whole enchilada is described from foreplay to climax and let me tell you, those scenes are fun to write! Each couple makes love differently and it's a challenge to make each scene unique. Playing with each hero and heroine's quirks and special weaknesses is the stuff of good fiction and I love exploring that.
Since I like nothing more than showing off my wares, here's a couple snippets from three different stories of mine. Bring on the smex!
In Insatiable, Rachel and Shawn have been best friends since childhood. Sex, however, brings all new dimensions to their relationship...
“What’s your rush?” he whispered before she seized his mouth, the pressure of her lips and tongue no longer slumberous but punishing.
“No talking.” She hiked her skirt up, bunching it around her waist as she settled herself directly on his cock, with only the thin material of her panties and his briefs separating them. Her arousal drenched the fabric, taunting him with the nearness of her pussy.
At his sharp inhale, she gripped his shoulders, her fingers digging in as she moved back and forth, up and down, until the friction made him reach up with his unchained hand to drag her mouth back for a desperate kiss.
Rachel jerked in his hold, her thighs molding to his hips as he thrust against the wispy barrier between them. With her center inches away, he couldn’t think. How many times had he used his own hand to simulate what it would be like to be inside her? The insistent pressure, the heat, the wetness. He’d wanted to know her that way, every way. Leaving no secrets or boundaries between them.
And now it was happening. Finally.
In Reveal Me, Alana and Nicky used to be sort of friends in high school but haven't seen each other in forever. Funny how little time it takes them to get reacquainted...
Tormenting him was fun. His rough exhales definitely encouraged her mischievous side. Maybe she’d have to take him home after all.
Easing forward, she crawled up his body to explore. She started with long licks of his stubbled throat, along his jaw, quick nips of his earlobe. He had a tiny mole near his collarbone, and a wet kiss there made him groan. His aftershave was subtle, just a hint of alpine that fit the woodsy scents surrounding them. Even the crisp aroma of his shampoo ignited her lust.
He drove his hands in her hair and dragged her face back to his. His tongue took possession of her mouth, his tempo slow and unhurried despite the rigid shaft trapped between their stomachs. The kiss went on forever. She hadn’t been consumed like this in years, if ever. These were soul-searching kisses, the kind long-term lovers shared. His hands didn’t wander her body but just the sensual movements of his mouth wet her thighs.
She massaged his cock while the nails of her free hand dug into his chest. He grabbed her wrist, lifting her fingers to his lips. “Give me a taste.” His satisfied groan rang out as he sucked her finger deep. “Oh sweetheart. Chocolate ice cream has nothing on you.”
And in Provoke Me, due out from soon, Kelly and Spencer have worked together for three years. But an unexpected meet up at a voyeurism club gives a whole new meaning to Kelly working under her boss...
She bucked against him, giving her an instant where he dropped his guard and the arm he’d used to cage her in. Then she grabbed his hand and pulled it down, pressing it against her belly. Giving herself that extra second before she took things to a place they couldn’t step back from.
His fingers flexed in her hold. Go for it.
But before she could, he went for it for her. He slid his hand down between her legs, rubbing hard. She jerked her hips against his hand, desperate for more. Her clit ached with banked need and the friction of his brusque touch gave her just what she needed. As wet as she was, she barely needed any stimulation at all and he’d already given her a damn overload.
Her heart pounded frantically and she opened her mouth on a soft cry. He ground his hand, circling, dragging it up and down until her cries became one long, endless moan.
To hell with lighting a match, he’d just thrown a torch into the forest.
So...now it's your turn. Do you like reading erotic books? How far do you like your sex scenes to go? Should they stay on the vanilla side or go all the way to chocolate with, erm, nuts? ;)
