Gods & Goddesses in an Erotic Romance Series – OH MY!
My first plunge into writing an erotic story was an eye-opener. I enjoy writing in different genre, so the call for submissions at Champagne Book Group’s Carnal Passions for the “Aphrodite’s Island” series was too much of a tease to pass up.
A luxurious resort set against the backdrop of sparkling blue seas, endless sun, and white sandy beaches. When Aphrodite opened the resort, it had one goal...to give the guests the ultimate in fantasy experiences. The manager, a reclusive young woman known only by Miss 'A' has set in place rules which guide the guests in their quest for the ultimate romantic fantasy...one sensual encounter at a time. The only rules—both parties must consent to the fantasy, and pleasure is the ultimate reward.
I love history and mythology – even write history and culture posts for my webpage (http://ritabay.com). The mythology-based series seemed to be a good fit. But what to write with a 10,000 word limit? If the goal was to try erotic romance, then why not jump in with both feet?
Her Teddy Bare ended up as a light BDSM e-book with a chuckle. I admit to a few blushes and nervous giggles while writing it but enjoyed the experience enough to plan a sequel in which Teddy’s true identity is revealed and Diana is placed in danger by her discoveries.
Her Teddy Bare is the third in the Aphrodite’s Island series of five and still counting. I’m in great company. Veteran erotic romance authors contributed Taming of a Sex God (Virginia Nelson) and One Too Many (Arlene Knowell), Books 1 and 2 in the series. Her Teddy Bare was followed by Wheel of Pleasure (Tara Kent) and Cruising for Love (Syrell Starr). Check out the blurb and XXcerpt for Her Teddy Bare.
After dumping her cheating fiancé, Diana Harper accepts an invitation “to attend a private event at Miss A’s island retreat to experience your most secret dreams and fondest fantasies.” Miss A gives “Teddy” to Diana as an “attendant.” Despite his best efforts, Teddy isn’t a submissive and the skimpy gold thong is ridiculous on a man his size. Although she’s not a domme, Diana plays his game to see where it leads. When Teddy offers her profound passion, the best sex ever, and the prospect of love, will she take a chance on another broken heart?
Theodore Bareston will do whatever it takes to win Diana’s love, even though “whatever” includes wearing a thong and posing nude in chains when Diana’s interest in her art revives. As the sexual tension builds and passions explode, Teddy is determined to convince Diana that he is the only man for her.
Excerpt: Teddy Cooks an Omelette
“Smells delicious, Teddy.”
“Thank you, Mistress. It’s another favorite.”
He snapped his mouth shut. She could almost hear the mental curses.
“It’s about to become one of mine also, I think.” She reached underneath his arm, grazed his tight abs, and snatched a spiced tomato cube. She popped it in her mouth, closed her eyes, and chewed slowly. “Hmmmm, so good.”
Teddy groaned. She opened her eyes. His cock was peeking over the top his thong again. She stood on tip-toe and leaned close. “Be careful what you chop, Teddy.”
He managed a strangled “Yes, Mistress.”
“It’s too nice to stay indoors. Let’s dine on the terrace.”
Teddy bent over slightly at the waist as he added the cheese to the omelet, then covered the pan.
She walked toward the terrace but stopped to deliver one last dig. “Teddy.”
He tossed the spatula in the sink. “Yes, Mistress.”
“How long before you come …”
“What? I mean, pardon, Mistress?” He braced both hands on the granite countertop but managed to keep his head down.
“…to the terrace, Teddy? How long?”
“Any second, Mistress. I’m about to come any second.”
“See that you do. I’m soooo hungry.”
