As I’ve immersed myself in the waters of writing novels, I’m looking over the works I’ve published and Pleasure House is, by far, the “fairest of them all.” At least according to the purchases I get. Dance of Desire is the other one that usually gets purchased afterwards. The warnings on both of these books are clear when you view the blurb: They are erotic pieces of work and not soulful sweet romances with spicy sex scenes. So there you have it. If you want “in-your-face” sex, sex, sex, these two books are it.
However, as I’ve discussed in other posts, there are readers who like their erotica with a story to it. Otherwise, readers usually label the work, porn because there is no central story line. Gee, I guess I thought the character’s sexual experience was the story line. Personally I’m okay with that, understand that, and like it when I’m in the mood (no pun intended!).
So, for all you romancers out there who still like the graphic sex but would like the focus on more than just the sex, then Mistress Of The House and Master Of The House will be more of what you’re looking for. I was careful to note there were adult situations in these books, and that they were for a mature audience, but they are romance, focus on the relationship between two characters, and there is the HEA (happily ever after).
The sex in these two books is still there, hot, rich, spicy, just the way erotica readers would like it to be. But if you want to know more of what the characters are thinking, what their agenda is, where there hearts are, these two books give you all that too. As a reader, you’ll get to see the characters in these two pieces of work put their House teachings to good use, and see them use creativity and sensuality in the bedroom get them what they want, while taking their partners on a fun-filled, lusty adventure.
Pleasure House definitely is the center piece in my House “box of chocolates,” and the three books mentioned above are some of the other tasty-filled treats.
