Sex and Shakespeare

This is my first blog for SSNS, and I’ll introduce myself briefly. Am in the process of writing my 22nd book, and had a new one come out last week called Quest for Magic. And although Mr. S wrote a love of bawdy stuff, giving this title to the blog is frankly just a come-on for Quest for Magic. It really does contain a lot of Shakespeare, since Hayley, the heroine, is a Shakespearean actress, and our handsome hero, Jono is only out for sex. The more Hayley rebuffs him as a too-confident seducer, the more he’s determined to have her. And just to make it more complicated there’s young sister who a pedophile is stalking. Here’s an excerpt from partway through the book, where Hayley is beginning to think he might be sincere. He is, but he can hardly believe it himself! “Then she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him with all the enthusiasm he could desire. Her hot and sultry voice reached his every bone. “So show me, Jono. Show me everything I don’t know. I’ve wanted to kiss you for the longest time.” “I shouldn’t do this,” she muttered. “But I’ve missed you so.” Jono stared into the eyes that mesmerized him from the moment he’d seen her. If he hadn’t already been completely aroused those eyes alone would stiffen him. “I’ll never force you, Hayley. In any way. Unless you want it, I won’t make another move.” She drew back, a slight smile quirking her lips. “That doesn’t sound like the Lothario I’d expected.” “Which do you want, Hailey? Me, or the mythical lover in your mind?” “I want you,” she wailed. “Not the legendary Lothario. But I can’t forget all those other women.” “Hayley, look at me.” His voice shook with intensity. “I won’t deny I’ve had other women, although not as many as you probably think. But I’ve never wanted anyone like I want you. I think I fell in love with you on sight.” As she stared at him, he continued with a sincerity he hoped she could not mistake. “I’ve loved you from the moment I saw you. No, even before. When I first heard your beautiful voice.” She still looked doubtful and he leaned down and captured her lips again. “Hayley, Hayley, let me show you my love for you. I’ve never told another woman I loved her. Never. I adore you, Hayley. You’ve put a song in my very soul.” He wanted so badly to give her pleasure. He longed to show her she meant the world to him. He wanted her to recognize he was essential to her and to know it with every fiber of her being. He’d never desired any woman the way he desired her. And above all he wanted every move he made to be one pleasing to her. She drew back, leaning against the circle of Jono’s arms. Looking deep into his eyes, he felt as if she saw directly into his loving and regretful soul. Regretful that he’d ever spent one minute on another woman and couldn’t come to her as pure as she was coming to him. Then she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him with all the enthusiasm he could desire. Her hot and sultry voice reached his every bone. “So show me, Jono. Show me everything I don’t know. I’ve wanted to kiss you for the longest time.” Published by Passion in Print, anad the next three which finish the series will be coming out soon.

Welcome to the Divas spot, Jean! Very clever, using sex and Shakespeare, 2 things most authors like, to catch our interest. Good luck with the book.
