Have a Little Story with Your Erotica
It’s just porn for women—that’s what some people say about erotic romance stories. As a writer of erotic romances, I protest. Porn is written for the purpose of titillation. It is usually one sex scene after another, strung together with the thinnest strands of story—if any. There is no emotional attachment between the characters.
On the other hand, erotic romance so carefully intertwines love scenes and story plot that the two can’t be separated. The characters feel more than lust for each other—although that is a major element—and that emotional connection shows in their lovemaking. They might not fall in love for happily-ever-after, but their relationship will resolve in a way that is satisfying for them as well as readers. And the sex scenes are not only hot, but romantic.
The main plot of my paranormal erotic romance series of novelettes, Moon Racers, revolves around a series of deaths that have occurred wherever this coven of motorcycle racing Texas vampires travels. The men in the coven were each turned through a virus passed on by their sires. As long as they remain together, they can live pretty much as normal men—except for greater strength, longer lives and their need to consume blood. But anyone who tries to leave the coven endures intense pain as well as an insatiable thirst to live feed—whether the donor is willing or not.
In the first book of Moon Racers, Start Your Engines, Cherry Lee discovers that the love of her life, who supposedly died in a fiery motorcycle crash, is alive…sort of. Rory Shaw is a vampire, turned the night of his accident. He almost killed a woman shortly after his turning and so has avoided Cherry. But now that she’s found him again, can he resist the woman who holds his heart, especially when she turns up the heat and sparks his insatiable appetite for her flesh…and blood? And what about the mysterious deaths that have occurred near Moon Racers events? Although they appear to be accidents, the fact that each body was drained of blood is suspicious and alarming.
In book two, Lay It Down, Kei Lee and Cameron Shaw share a past filled with lovemaking to the extreme. But Cam's racing career drove them apart. Now Kei is back in Cam's life, looking for her sister, Cherry. Cam has the information...and a secret. Will Kei accept his vampire nature and return to his arms on a permanent basis? Or will a possible killer part them for eternity?
As of now, I plan two more novelettes in the Moon Racers series, featuring a different sexy couple in each book. The mysterious ‘accidents’ will draw ever closer to the coven until the truth is revealed. Interwoven with this suspenseful plot will be plenty of explicit love scenes that live up to the genre of erotic romance.
