But we were talking, my friend and I, and she said to me, "Why do you write kink?"
I shrugged. "I like it?" I wasn't sure where she was going with this. "Why?"
"Do people actually read that stuff?"
I won't say I was flummoxed. I've read enough erotic books that most of it doesn't faze me. I like my kink. But to explain why others might? Hmm. So I answered from my perspective.
"I like to read about people who express themselves sexually in a manner that's built from love and mutual admiration." Ok, that sounds so...clinical. I like to read about people having a good time nekkid--as long as it's all consensual.
This time, she was flummoxed. "But it's that...stuff."
"I write what the characters want to do. If they push the boundaries, then so be it. There's nothing wrong with a little slap and tickle, some fun domination, a few toys for flavor, and restraint."
Let's put it this way. Her jaw dropped, she turned a lovely shade of crimson, and she left the table. I shrugged. I was honest. Wasn't that what she wanted?
So I ask you, what's your kink? What turns you on in a story? What's the limit? Anything you'd absolutely not read?
Here's a taste of my current release, What Might Have Been.
A second chance has never been this sweet or sexy.
Macy Shibley left Mason, Ohio, to figure out who she was and what she wanted. But after more than a few disastrous relationships, she refuses to let anyone tie her down. She’ll control the tying, thank you very much. No man has ever managed to chip away the walls around her heart...except for one man.
Tanner Connolly has never forgotten his high school crush. The sweet blonde with the vibrant eyes fills his dreams and fantasies. He’d had a shot in school to make her more than a friend, but blew it for the sake of appearances. Now he’d like to know what might have been and use it to create a future. But he’ll have to let her go to prove he wants more than one night...
Reader Advisory: This book contains steamy sex against a door, the creative use of sex toys, some harmless domination, and a little anal play for good measure.
