“I like being watched…” #MWTease #MFRWAuthor #Polyamory

Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!

Hot short stories, one for every day in July! Check them out at Extasy Books.


We’re excited ours is releasing this coming Sunday, July 30. Here’s a little four-way action from our swinging couples in Hot to the Touch:

EXCERPT

Brett heard Kim sigh deeply and then felt her prop herself up off his chest. She wiggled her lower body, testing their connection. He opened his eyes to see her grinning happily.

“Hmm. You didn’t come.” She gave him a half-hearted pout. “You have more for me, no?”

“Do you want more?”

“Absolutely. This time I will begin. This time don’t hold back. If we do much more than this, I will be a wreck for a week. And my husband won’t be pleased.”

Brett glanced over at Paul, who was intertwined with Jen. Both were watching them intently. “We wouldn’t want your husband to be unhappy,” he said. “We’d like to be invited back.”

“Not a problem,” Kim said. “Besides, he looks like a very happy man at the moment.”

“And Jen looks quite satisfied. They seem content to watch.”

Kim chuckled and leaned over to kiss him lightly. “Then let’s put on a show for them. I like being watched.”

BLURB

Can the summer get any hotter? Escaping Southern Indiana summer heat, swingers Brett and Jen check out a Minnesota clothing optional RV resort, where the rules are very different from the swing lifestyle venues they’re used to. When they spot a hot looking couple in the swimming pool, they’re definitely interested, but they know better than to make the first move. Will Paul and Kim turn out to be players, or will Brett and Jen get a cold shoulder?

What do We Tweet?

#Health #Boomers #Pride #Polyamory #SexPositivity

Are you getting the drift? My husband and I write erotic romance together under our pen name, Adriana Kraft. Yes, we are Baby Boomers working hard to stay healthy. Yes, we support Pride, polyamory, and sex positivity. I’ll start from the back of the list.

Here’s what sex positivity means to us (with a shout out to Charlie Glickman, who we think offers the clearest definition): There are three criteria for judging any sexual encounter among adults:

One: consent of all involved parties, at every step of the process.

Two: Pleasure for the involved parties (however they define pleasure).

Three: it contributes to the well-being of the involved parties.

For us, this means things like no slut shaming, such as we encountered in some reviews of our erotic romance The Best Man. Yes, Kitty (our heroine) is a slut. Is that wrong? No. Does it bring her pleasure and contribute to her well-being? Sometimes – and when it doesn’t, those consequences force her to grow and figure out what she really wants. We think that stands for itself. A good read on this topic is The Ethical Slut, by Janet Hardy and Dossie Easton.

Working backwards: Polyamory (and multiple partners, whether or not all parties are in love) follows logically from sex positivity. None of us can dictate who will fall in love or even who “ought” to fall in love. Perhaps the most important line in our bio is “we believe in happy endings for all who fall in love, whatever their gender, sexual orientation or numerical combination.” We write fictional stories that adhere to these values, and those are also the values we apply in real life. Tristan Taormino has written a thoughtful book about polyamory that we highly recommend: Opening Up

Pride. Not just because we believe it is right and that it follows logically from the above values, but because both our extended family and our friendship network are filled with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals, all of whom we love deeply and believe deserve happiness and fulfillment in love.

Boomers – that cohort born between 1946 and 1964. This year, Baby Boomers are between the ages of 53 and 71, and no, we’re not among the youngest of those. Our stories often feature main characters who are in their fifties and beyond, though we also love writing younger characters. True love and satisfying erotic encounters can happen at any age and are always to be celebrated, including in erotic romance. Joan Price, an advocate for ageless sexuality, has a delightful collection of erotic stories entitled Ageless Erotica.

Health, without which none of the above would be possible. Maintaining health becomes increasingly challenging as we age, and it is our most important value. We work out. We read up on brain health, nutrition, strength training, aerobic exercise, and stress reduction. We incorporate as much of this information as we can into our daily routines, and we are each other’s cheerleader and workout buddy to keep ourselves on track.

If you are a blogger focused on any of these topics, we’d love to invite you to our pages. If you are a reader who shares our interests, naturally we hope you’ll check out our books at this LINK.

 

“You must be very special…” #MWTease #MFRWAuthor #Menage

Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!

We’re pumped for the upcoming release of our next erotic romance ménage, coming in two weeks from Extasy Books. You can read an excerpt from Seducing Cat and enter to win a free download HERE.

Meanwhile, we thought we’d give you a little taste of some other FFM ménage stories from our backlist. The Reunion won the 2014 Bisexual Writers Association award for best erotic fiction and was a Top Pick at both  The Romance Reviews and Night Owl Reviews.

We’re offering an autographed paperback copy of The Reunion at an on-line auction to support LGBT Chechens at risk. The Auction runs now through May 13 at this LINK:


The Reunion

BLURB

Dark and brooding, Adam Granger was always the bad boy out of reach—but now he’s in Sarah Atkinson’s bed, the morning after their twentieth high school reunion. When Adam beats a retreat to his Pacific Palisades estate, former good girl Sarah throws caution to the wind and pursues him.

Petite copper-skinned Maria Ramirez greets Sarah at Adam’s front door. The former exotic dancer doesn’t challenge Sarah’s assumption she’s the maid—how long will it take the dark-haired beauty to figure out Maria is Adam’s live-in lover? Better yet, how long before Maria can entice her into their bed?

Determined not to rock his hard-won lifestyle, Adam resolves to push Sarah past her sexual limits so she’ll leave. When she stays, he watches helplessly as the two women fall in love with each other. Will they shut him out? And, if they let him in, what must he sacrifice?

EXCERPT

“You’re the first woman Adam has been with since he and I got together,” Maria said.

“And you’re not jealous?” Sarah squeaked.

Maria shrugged her shoulders. “Why should I be? I’ve not been with another man since I started up with Adam.” Maria knelt on the floor. Sarah didn’t flinch away when Maria rested a hand on her bare knee. “But I do take other women to my bed from time to time. And occasionally Adam joins us.”

The air in Sarah’s lungs whooshed out. “Oh.” She covered her mouth. “Oh.”

“But you must be something very special,” Maria said, squeezing Sarah’s knee and removing her hand.

“Why do you say that?” Sarah managed to whisper.

“Because Adam is letting you stay here in the house.”
