Guest Post & Giveaway with Lisa Eugene

First Kisses


                I love to read romance novels as well as write them. I love to sit in a quiet place and get enrapt in a beautiful relationship as it unfolds. Chemistry between the hero and heroine is paramount, and the way the sexual build up occurs speaks to the entire trajectory of the novel. It all starts with that all important first kiss. Will it be slow and tentative, or impulsive and raw? Well, I guess it all depends on the type of novel you’re reading and the personality of the characters. But for me it’s a defining moment. A moment when I say to myself, wow, these two belong together or well…maybe not. Because even if your characters start out hating each other, there has to be passion. Even if the kiss is impulsive and done in a moment of spontaneous emotion, it still has to be electric. Sometimes the body knows more than the mind what it likes.

                In my books, the first kiss is an extension of my characters’ emotions. It’s usually a moment that’s long remembered and may come up again during the novel. This is usually where I define all the feelings that go into that moment—the racing heart, the sensuous tingles, the heated breaths, the arousal! I think the reader should be a part of that moment too. After that first kiss, the reader should have an idea of how intimacy will evolve between the hero and heroine and be looking forward seeing more.

Praise for Lisa Eugene's Washington Memorial Hospital series


“Suspense filled, evocative and heart pounding.” - Book Addict Mumma

Lisa Eugene is one of my top 10 authors. She writes some wicked good mystery-suspense-erotica that I LOVE! Gah it's so good! and now that it's over I want more more more! This is the third book in the Washington Memorial Series (it's a stand alone so no cliffy) and it just keeps getting better and better every time!”  - Taryn Lee’s Book Blog

“Written with knowledge of the medical profession, this love/lust story grabs your attention with its ‘who done it tale’. The heroine in the book is an intelligent woman who finds herself entangled in more than she bargained for. I like to compare the book to a 50 shades meets Sydney Sheldon.” - Annie, Amazon reviewer

About Lisa Eugene:


Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn't get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.

When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance. Lisa loves hearing from fans; be sure to connect with her on Twitter at @lisaeugene43 or at lisaeugene43@gmail.com.
