Kenra Daniels’ #SundaySix Has A Title!

Last week I posted Six Sentences from my Work In Progress, an untitled erotic contemporary romance, and asked if anyone had ideas for a title. A couple of you had wonderful suggestions. Well, now it has a title, thanks to my friend and critique partner, Azure Boone. Having the advantage of reading a major scene, she suggested “Dare To Stare”, because of the scene where the hero catches the heroine staring at him. Instead of looking away, she continues to stare, bold as brass. So, Dare To Stare it is. Amy followed her gaze and recognized Jessie’s powerful body nearing the table. Once more, his stride reminded her of a big cat stalking prey. A little shiver danced across her skin with the realization that she was the prey. The tip of her tongue slid across her lower lip, anticipating his taste. Jessie paused, his hot gaze melting her. Her anger faded … Continue reading

The Myth Of Multiples (Orgasms, That Is)

*WARNING: The following post is a frank discussion of sexual practices and situations some might find offensive. If you are under 18, or find such discussions objectionable, please explore my other posts and pages.* That’s that, so let’s get on with the important stuff, m’kay? One of the big pet peeves that both readers and writers seem to have with romance novels is lack of realism in matters pertaining to orgasms. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve read a comment someone left regarding the implausibility of multiple orgasms for both Hero and Heroine, well… You know the rest of the line. So, that got me thinking… Yes, thank you, I’m well aware of the hazards associated with that activity! Are multiple orgasms impossible? For just males? Or for both males and females? (See that? I’m pretending I don’t already know the answer ) Many people, of both … Continue reading

Your Guide To Sex With… #1

Welcome to a new Hit Or Miss Series(TM)! So, what the hell is a Hit Or Miss Series(TM)? I’m glad you asked. A Hit Or Miss Series(TM) is a series of posts on whatever random subject strikes my imagination. No particular schedule. No particular format.

But, there are some SOOPER SEKRIT S’PRIZEZ involved with that, so I’m holding it until Blood Dragon I is published. That way, I won’t ruin the first time for you. With weredragons out of the running, then, I think I’ll go with The Vampire. So here it is Your Guide To Sex With… … Continue reading

Please join me in welcoming author Gabrille Bisset today! She’s here to give us the goods on the heroes she’s written, and fell in love with.

A Heroine Worth Saving?

A few weeks ago, in A Hero To Die For, I talked about the things that go into good Heroes. While I focused on the Romance, or Paranormal Romance, novel Hero, many of those characteristics will fit the protagonist for any genre. I’d intended to talk about the Heroine the following week, but ended up with Who IS This? Making Minor Characters Useful instead. Then life intervened and I’m just now getting back to the series. This week, continuing to discuss character development for Nailing Down the Essentials, we finally get a close look at the Heroine. Please Press DELETE Yes, I’m aware the post title implies that the Heroine needs the Hero to save her. No, that isn’t what I mean. I’m referring to Saving, as in not Deleting. Because, let’s face it, we’ve all read Romance Heroines who should have been Deleted! Of course, we can also infer … 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.
