Wicked Wednesday with Tonya Ramagos

      

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Do ice cubes count? LOL That seems to be my character’s choice of food related items. Reese found a creative way to use an ice cube on Melody in Sports Beats [Rock Hard Seduction 3], Justin and Ben attempted to cool down Marissa’s heat in Marissa’s Rights [The Service Club 2], and, most recently, Jackson used an ice cube to drive Mallory wild in Sexual Games [The Heroes of Silver Springs 8].

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I was in my early twenties when I read my first romance novel. As a matter of fact, I remember the exact book, Having His Baby by Karen Young. I don’t remember the first erotica book I read, but I know it was about a year after I ventured into romance before I got hooked on erotica.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Truthfully, I love them all! I do tend to lean more toward contemporary or romantic suspense and if there’s MM or menage thrown in, even better.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

My heroes tend to have shorter or buzz gut hair. Since I write so many books with heroes in public service professions, the length of their hair tends to be regulation. Personally, I think men with shorter hair are sexier anyway. Of course, there are a select few out there who really make bald look wickedly hot.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I’m a morning person. If I sleep past 8 o’clock, I had a really late night. 🙂 In a house with 4 teenagers and a boyfriend, I find it easiest to write usually between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm, sometimes later if mommy life doesn’t take over.

My favorite place to write is my back deck. I love being outside where I’m not surrounded by the distractions of the domestic chores I haven’t yet done. It’s peaceful and I find it thought provoking. Of course, winter time makes it difficult. The cold either sends me inside or I learn to type while shivering my tail off. LOL

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

Hmm, honest answer? My characters forget to use birth control. Eek! That sounds awful, but I tend to get so caught up in the scene that I don’t think about putting on that condom until the scene is over. Lucky for me, and my characters, they’re all STD free and live happily ever after together so, if they make a baby, it’s okay.

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.
My latest release is Sexual Games, book 8 of The Heroes of Silver Springs series. This book is FBI agents Jackson Graham’s and Mallory Stone’s story with a M/M subplot of a budding relationship between Mallory’s brother, FBI agent Cameron Stone and Firefighter Thaddeus Carter. Jackson and Mallory first appeared in the series in book 2, Twin Games, where Jackson is mistaken for his twin brother Jason and ends up in a brief menage with Jason and his girlfriend Angelina. It was fun bringing these characters back into the series for their own story and, when Jackson and Mallory put their own spin of a few sex games, the heat really broke the thermometer!

I’m currently writing book 9 of The Heroes of Silver Springs, tentatively titled Going Under. This is a M/M/M story featuring FBI agent Cameron Stone, Firefighter Thaddeus Carter, and DEA agent Adrien Bingham. These three hunks have been emotionally tortured in the subplots of previous books in the series and the way their story is unfolding in Going Under is even surprising me! I’m having a blast writing this story and I can’t wait for fans to read it. So watch for it at Siren-Bookstrand this winter!

Wicked Wednesday with Clair de Lune

    

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Melted Cadbury’s chocolate.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

At age seventeen I read “Room at the Top” and “Lady Chatterley’s Lover.”

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

I love BDSM, it’s edgy. I like the Love Slave for Two series. I like Kinbaku, not that there is much of that in novels yet. I am doing my best to remedy that. I  like a lot of genres. Club Esoteria is a favourite, as are The Desire series and Bliss to name but a few. In general there are so many good writers in romance these days that it’s hard to name just one genre. You can never get enough of a good thing!

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Long hair. It’s good for heroine to run her fingers through it. Different moods mean flowing free or tied back. He can use his hair creatively, to pleasure his lady.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

The answer to this is I don’t really have one yet. I always have a note book or my iPad so I can make notes. I went to Glasgow the other day and sat for a whole hour in the car and wrote. It was a sunny day, the windows were open, I had a flask of coffee, perfect. I am just as happy writing in bed or in the kitchen. I took my granddaughter to the Roman Army museum, she sat and coloured in the sheets provided. I got an idea for a story and sat scribbling furiously. My husband is resigned to sitting in the car, waiting until I get my notes finished before we do the shopping.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?
Yes, many of them do. Master Angus my favourite Dom did not, so he made himself and the heroine wait until they were tested. Then it was a free for all. If they are not yet sure they are going to be together then it’s condoms every time.

I make sure that the hero has the  heroine is so ready for it, begging for it, that she does not care so long as he gets it on and fast!

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.
My next book is not the second in the Prometheus in Chains series. That came out on October 17th. October 3rd saw the release of the first in a new series of historical mysteries, The Rotherham Hall Mysteries take place in Regency England. The Locket’s heroes are identical triplets, a ménage for lucky Lady Alicia. I have almost completed number seven in the Prometheus series. It has taken a while to get the story of Master Torquil and his Gemma sorted out but it is done and will be off to Siren this week.

Wicked Wednesday with Katherine Wyvern

     

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Honey.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

Early to mid teens, I think. One of my grandmothers had a stash of naughty books tucked away among the dustiest and most ponderous tomes of her library. They helped me considerably in surviving some of the dullest, most interminable Sundays of my life. I wonder if she realized why I spent so much time reading in lonesome corners of her house when I was visiting.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

GLBT erotica with a fair bit of BDSM thrown in. I enjoy “different” sex combinations, and the emotional weight of SM scenes.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Bald. Seems all the hot men I like at the moment are bald. I came to the conclusion that long hair is for My Little Ponies. Hot studs can obviously do without.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

Mostly the afternoon. Somewhere quiet in the woods is best, unless I can have the home to myself. I need solitude.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

All my stories are fantasy or sci-fi, so I never felt the need to mention condoms. If I were writing real-world stories I would, though. The only condom scene I ever wrote was in a sci-fi context where it was obvious that the condom was an outdated quirk, and added to the kinky, latex-wrapped feel of the scene. I liked writing that!
7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

My latest release is The Garden of a Thousand Nightingales, which is a very tender, dreamlike fantasy story, quite different from my more hard-core Evernight titles. At the moment I am writing an equally dreamlike but much hotter fantasy tale loosely based on the old British ballad Elfin Knight. I hope to finish it by Xmas, fingers and toes firmly crossed.

Wicked Wednesday with Michelle Clay

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Cole has a major sweet tooth so it would have to be something really sweet. He’d probably love to put that powdery pixie stick stuff on Alex and lick it off!

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I picked up one of my mom’s old romance novels when I was ten or eleven … I remember that it was pretty tame and a little disappointing. LOL Erotica, hmmm probably when I was fourteen or so. My cousin brought one on vacation and we giggled like idiots at all the good parts.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Definitely paranormal. I’ve always loved the idea of a heroine overcoming supernatural obstacles and finding love on the way. Maybe it has something to do with my mom introducing me to romance novels and me and my brother’s shared love for all things horror. 🙂

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

I was going to say I don’t have a preference, but as I think about the heroes in my own novels I realize that I tend to lean toward longer hair. However, it’s usually that just rolled out of bed, need a trim, sexy as hell look. LOL

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I prefer to write at night, but these days, I’ll take any time I can get! My favorite place to work my magic is usually in my office. I can shut the door, crank up the music and be in my own little world.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Marked Souls was released this summer by Evernight Publishing. And I’m not too modest to admit that to date, it’s my favorite novel. I absolutely love the characters, especially the hero.

Blurb:

Not only can Alexandra Chandler summon demons, she can destroy them as well. Unfortunately, her unique gift has garnered the attention of Erielnael, one of the most powerful demons in the Netherworld. He recognizes the raw power Alex holds and wants to make her his familiar. This demon is unlike any other she’s ever gone up against. When she narrowly escapes him, he put a price on her head and his denizens will stop at nothing to please their master.

Unfortunately for Alex, demons aren’t the only ones after her. A small, secretive group of demon hunters has learned of her talents and wants the use of her extraordinary gifts as well. When she agrees to help them, her life is turned upside down. To make matters worse she has fallen for Cole Murrough, a key member of the group, who is moody and sometimes difficult to get along with. Cole has a dark secret of his own, but can she accept it? Alex finds herself dealing with demons, a forbidden love, dark secrets and a betrayal so shocking; it could destroy everything she’s worked toward.

Wicked Wednesday with Yazmin Subha

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Strawberries as they are the color of blood!

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

It was in my early teens. My older sister and I used to go to the library together. I had just graduated into the adult section so I chose a handful of books. When I started a particular book, the title of which I cannot recall, it had two models who were posing for a photographer and had sex in lots of places. My sister flicked through it and then decided it was not suitable! I think that started my interest in romance and erotica.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Paranormal. I love the suspense, human and supernatural world existing together and the combinations of heroes and hidden abilities.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Recently, my mind is going to bald. I saw some pictures on the internet whilst randomly searching for something. Then I bumped into my son’s ex-basketball coach who is bald, and hey presto! So I think my next hero will be bald!

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

(Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I write best in the morning on days I do not go out to work. I love to make a cup of Earl Gray tea and get back into bed to write.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

My latest release happens to be my very first novella called ‘Wildfire’. I am so excited about it as I am sure everyone is about any release!  Wildfire is the story of Millie St Clair who has an encounter with a stranger. The next morning it all appears to be a dream until he turns up and whilst feeling threatened she discovers a hidden ability. Millie runs to her grandma’s home where she learns about her heritage and the reason why the stranger, Braden wants her.

I will stop there and let the readers discover the rest.

Here is the blurb:

Braden has searched all his life for the one who will help him regain his humanity and give him absolute power. One bite and he knew Millie was the one he had been searching for. Millie, a fiery red head is the last one in the line of high born witches who would rather die than give herself to this vampire. After all he killed her mother for her blood as well, didn’t he?  But in a twist of fate Millie learns too late what the truth is. But will death be the only thing that unites them?

Well I hope your readers like the sound of that.

You can find the Wildfire here:

Wicked Wednesday with May Water

      

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Food play is quite popular with my heroines. Frosting, zucchini, jumbo peppermint sticks and licorice are amongst the yummies involved so far.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I am STILL trying to locate a book that I stole (and then lost) from one of my older sisters when I was about twelve. The picture on the torn cover was of a young lady hitchhiking in short shorts. The title had the word Piccadilly or Piccalilli in it. I would re-read the hot scenes over and over.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Tie between FF and ménage (where females outnumber the men). Why? Because women letting loose sexually is damn hot! I also tend to enjoy American historical. The sex seems kinkier to me since everyone was so hush-hush about it.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

To me it doesn’t matter. I don’t really notice men’s hair. I’m more of a muscular thigh and beefy bicep kinda girl.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

During my first year as a writer I wrote at all hours. Life was a blur. Now that I’ve calmed down I find that I do best writing in 2-4 separate increments, depending on if I have a deadline or not, making my total daily writing time approximately 4-8 hours. I write or promote 7 days a week. My favorite places to write have the views and sounds of nature. I don’t do as well writing in a city with views of concrete and constant noise.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

I didn’t know so I had to re-read those excerpts. It looks like I just kind of slipped it in (pun intended).

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

I have a bunch of erotic short stories stashed away. I am lengthening them one by one. I was recently working on two tales simultaneously, a gay werewolf and a western. The werewolf piece has been submitted so now I can slip fully into the Old West with RAW HIDE AWAY/Book 2 of the LASSOED LOVERS series.

Wicked Wednesday with Berengaria Brown

      

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Chocolate. Totally delicious and sexy as hell, especially in liquid form.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

Romance maybe 11 or so. I was home from school ill, and a friend of my mother’s gave me a Georgette Heyer novel to read.

Erotic romance maybe 14. I’d read everything in the children’s section of the local library, and my father loaned me his library card, so I could look for books in the adult section. I read “Forever Amber” by Kathleen Winsor, (which was banned in 14 states!) and was hooked.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

That answer changes from day to day. I love pretty much everything from sweet to seriously kinky, and everything in between, covering all genres. Overall I likely come back to historical romance the most frequently.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Long enough for the heroine to run her hands through.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

Late at night after work is done, alone at my desk with my faithful laptop.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

They’re all individual so some do, some don’t. Some publishing houses insist on it, so the characters have to get with the program in that case. But with colored, textured and flavored condoms, using them can be fun.

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Small Woman, Big Trouble” released on 10th September.

Blurb:

Deb Steele hikes through a Water Authority reservation. But houses are being built on one section of it, and she can’t get home. She phones Kai Cole, and he and Harry Anders come to get her. While she’s waiting for them, her cell phone battery dies and a young man turns up on an electric scooter. When he realizes she’s quite alone, he plans to sexually assault her. She escapes from him just as Kai and Harry arrive.

Kai worries about how he can protect Deborah if this man is following her, and Harry suggests they learn karate. Kai decides the only way their beginning threesome relationship can progress further is if they all move in together.

But, as Deb is leaving work late that evening, the attacker jumps her once again. Why is he after her? How can the men protect her? And will they ever have enough time to build their friendship into a genuine relationship?

Author details:

Berengaria is a multi-published author of erotic romance: contemporary, paranormal (magic, ghosts, vampires, fairies, dragons, and werewolves), futuristic, medieval, and Regency-set historical. She loves to read all different kinds of romance so that is what she writes: one man/one woman; two women; two men; two men/one woman; three men, two women/one man, three men/one woman….
