Author Tina Gayle On When Women Lose Sex Appeal

Join me in welcoming Tina Gayle today on a subject near and dear to all women at some point, and one that ties directly to her upcoming release. Tina? At what age does a woman lose her sex appeal? Thirty, forty, fifty, eighty? Never. Woman are unique in that at any age they can be as sexy as they want to be. Look at Betty White. The woman is funny, cute, and someone we would all like to know. Do men find her attractive? I can’t see why not. She is smart, well versed in I’m sure a number of subjects, has a pretty face, a nice smile, sexy curves and a winning personality. Then why do all romance heroines have to be in their twenties? Luckily, the age has expanded. In my current release, Sylvia Donovan is in her late forties. Does that make her unattractive? Not in my … Continue reading

  • Just Sayin’

    I'm a Romance Author - mainly Paranormal, but nearly all with fairly graphic intimate scenes. Those scenes serve to further the development of my plots and characters and are not included haphazardly to sell books or arouse readers.

    I probably COULD tell the stories without the graphic parts, but I CHOOSE not to. I want to show the full scope of the developing relationship, and leaving out some of the most powerful and meaningful moments will deprive the reader of a measure of understanding and emotional reaction to the characters and their stories.

    Since I write books intended for adult readers, I often have material on my website that is entirely unsuitable for younger readers. If you're under 18, or if you're easily offended by open discussion of sexual situations with frank language, you might want to look the other direction.
