We’re continuing with a little backlist love. A few weeks ago we featured The Diary, which introduced Kate’s younger sister, Luci, as the diarist who sent her older sister on an erotic wild goose chase. Luci soon demanded her own story, and Writing Skin was the result.
Today’s ten sentences are taken from the erotic novel Luci writes during the book, “Watching.”
Edie stared out the window of her north side apartment through the Monet raindrops trying to get her bearings. Her lover of three years had just told her that morning of a long held fantasy—he wanted to watch her make love to another woman.
Hugging herself, Edie thought she should be more shocked or offended. She’d never been with a woman. It wasn’t that she hadn’t thought about it or even had the opportunity; one of her best friends was bi and had talked openly about a liaison more than once, but she hadn’t been ready to take that leap.
How did Jake know she’d been having night time dreams about Angela lately? Had she talked in her sleep? Had he been watching her that closely? What telltale signs had he seen? More than one morning she’d awakened with aching, sticky loins
What would it be like to be romanced by not one but two potential partners, simultaneously? Luci Parker has finally achieved the career of her dreams as an erotica author – but the only romance in her life these days is in the books she writes. Long attracted to both men and women, Luci despairs of ever finding just one person to settle down with.
Owners of a South Side Chicago bookstore, Chai and Frank Ferguson eagerly devour Luci’s books as fast as she can write them, and now they wonder if she might be the woman they’ve been looking for.
Frank is deeply in love with Chai but knows she’ll never be complete without a woman to love as well. Can he match the passion of not one but two exquisite and complicated women at the same time? Will Luci even want him? And if Chai truly falls in love with Luci, will there be room for him?
All three characters in this intense erotic love story wrestle with the meaning of love, lust and commitment as they struggle to find themselves—and each other.
Writing Skin is available in print in the two-volume series, The Diary, or solo as an e-book:

I think she’ll be more intrigued by this idea than she thinks! 😉
Ed Hoornaert says
It doesn’t seem that her lover will need to do a huge amount of coaxing to make his fantasy reality.
Diane Burton says
An interesting development. Somehow, he’s guessed her secret longing. And now he wants to fulfill it. I don’t think he’ll have to twist her arm much.
Caitlin Stern says
Communication is key in any relationship. Now the question is–will she share her secret in return?
Kimberly Gould says
I like how you portray her conflicted reaction.
