Twelve Naughty Descriptions with Holiday Cheer
One of my favorite parts about writing is descriptions. It’s the closest I’ll ever get to being an artist. I love using my words to paint a picture for the reader, and bring them into my world.
But description doesn’t just tell you the color of the heroine’s hair or how long—I mean tall—the hero is. Descriptions also give a story a sense of place, a sense of feel. Descriptions can pull you into the story, making you feel like you’re a part of the action. They set the stage for not just what you see but how the character feels as well. What’s important to a character, and what drives them crazy.
Being inventive, using your imagination to come up with descriptions that you’ve never read before or that perfectly fit your character (hopefully both at the same time), is one of the joys for me as a writer. I never feel more excited at the laptop than when I find just the right way to describe how my character is feeling, hurting or loving.
The most fun I’ve ever had with description was by far with my holiday tales in my Naughty Holiday List series. Each story has its own holiday, its own theme to work with, that gave me a whole new way to view the world. No same old, same old descriptions in these stories. No, each tale tells it romance through the imagery and focus of their particular holiday, showing how each special day is important for the character.
Here are my twelve favorite Christmas descriptions from Naughty List.
12. Caring, empathetic, loves children, crystal-blue eyes, soot-black hair.
11. She tasted like ambrosia-covered Christmas cookies.
10. No clomping booted steps rang in the silence, no rustle of clothing or sack of goodies filled with her valuables.
9. Giselle’s jaw clenched, her face as bright red as Santa’s suit.
8. Callie refocused on her paper, the pressure of her friends’ concern weighing on her neck, forcing her to stay harnessed to her pain, like a reindeer to Santa’s sleigh.
7. Quick and unexpected, fastenings wrapped around her, holding her forearms tight to her hips like a good tin soldier.
6. His eyes dark, clouded with lust that sizzled along her body, like chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
5. “What’s the point? Guys are like Christmas toys. What’s all the rage this year will be thrown in the garbage by Easter, and then you’ll be looking for something new.”
4. His fingers traced the edge of her panties, each of Callie’s nerves heating and glowing like a bright Christmas light at his touch.
3. Heat flared through Callie, curling in her stomach, tight and knotted as next year’s Christmas lights.
2. “Yes Santa,” she replied obediently, her brain as useful as a bowl full of jelly.
1. He lengthened the brush along her anus and sex until she shivered, her stomach fluttering like a flock of turtledoves.
If you liked these descriptions I hope you’ll check out the whole story. Available and ready for download this holiday season. And I hope you and yours have a happy, festive and wonderful holiday and brilliant New Year.
Eric has been in love with Callie since the day they met, one month after someone else put a ring on her finger. Since her engagement ended Eric has been biding his time, waiting for her to be ready. Until he finds a naughty list of Christmas wishes hidden between her couch cushions with his name on the top.
He’s willing to do anything to make Callie happy, including take on the role of dominate Santa Claus and spank her to blow-your-stockings-off orgasm. But is she ready for everything he wants? Does she want his love?
