Writer with Sizzle: Cerise DeLand

Please welcome Cerise DeLand! Cerise is giving away one of her eBooks to a lucky commenter. Reader’s choice! So be sure to give her some love. (I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday evening so be sure to check back.)

Lia: How do your characters enjoy their playtime? Rough? Playful? Tender? All of the above?
Cerise: Rough, playful, tender, funny, strong and enduring. Those are ALL the qualities of my characters when they make love to each other! Isn’t that what we all want and need? Tireless and creative lovers are my main passion and I try to get them on the page and into bed! Or on a kitchen counter. Or on a rack in a dungeon. (Really!) Or on a desk in a mile-high private jet over Dubai. Or in a Parisian club where couples go to share themselves and their experiences.
Love scenes are for mouth-watering delights in almost any place that is comfortable for the raw enjoyment of an exciting partner!
Lia: You definitely have my interest piqued. What is the hottest scene you ever wrote?
Cerise: The hottest scene I ever wrote—and the most difficult—was in my ménage, HER THREE-WAY MERGER. This was the first ménage I ever wrote and the choreography really got me all hot and bothered! In so many ways! I adored the idea of 2 men for one woman. What woman doesn’t? BUT I knew I wanted a happy-ever-after for Sienna and Cord Ryder. I knew these people. Saw them. Understood them. But to write them together in a seduction, culmination and declaration of love? Ah. Tough!
In a scene with only one man and one woman, I get the play. I know what hand is where, why and how to proceed. But with more than one partner, the challenge is all in the best writing to convey the mood, motivation of the characters and to drive the story where you need it to go.
Showing potential love from one of the men had me reeling with the edits. I could not allow the younger brother to become too involved emotionally, either. So when I saw that I had to divide the action and the motivation, I finally understood my story—and my characters soooooooooo much better!
Here is a tiny sample of Sienna, Cord and Tate together:
She began to jump up, afraid she wasn’t knowledgeable enough to handle two men at once. But she halted. How did a woman do that, anyway? And not die of ecstasy? The girl in her had wanted both of them at once. Did the woman?
Her pussy throbbed and she knew her answer was yes, oh yes, I want you both. Just like I always had. Any way you want me. In a small but determined voice, she laid ground rules for whatever came next. “But you have to know that whatever happens here my offer is the same as my real estate agent’s.”
“Fun first.” Tate inched closer, his tone all business but his gaze lush with desire as he removed her shoes. “Business later.”
Cord put his mouth to her ear and whispered, “We have to taste you.” And in her surprise, she dissolved in his hands as he lowered his demanding mouth on hers and probed her inner recesses with a spearing tongue. “Every inch of you.” He splayed his fingers in her hair, sent a few of her hairpins flying, then claimed her lips again while one hand covered her breast.
“Give me this,” Tate commanded and took her glass. “I want to show you where this margarita really tastes good.” And in a second, she felt his cold kiss on her kneecap while his cool fingers parted her legs and stroked up her thigh. He went a few inches more and threaded his fingers around the crotch of her thong. She bucked, trying hard to hang on to her sanity and not just come right now like a frustrated nun.
“Oh, Christ, bro,” Tate groaned as his knuckles grazed her slit and she moaned at his tantalizing nudge. “She’s sopping wet for us.”
“Open for him, honey,” Cord crooned to her, one hand undoing the buttons of her blouse. “I am going to kiss your pretty mouth again while he gets his fingers all juicy with you.”
She eagerly widened her legs but the damn tight skirt was such a hindrance that she whimpered in frustration. Cord slipped his palm into her bra and lifted out a swollen nipple. She arched into his caress. “You both have a reputation. Worse than in high school. Ah, god, that’s great, Cord.”
Cord rolled her nipple between two fingers. “Did you pebble like this for me in high school?”
“Yes, yes! Kiss me there!” she ordered, shocked but proud of her demand.
“Should have told us, baby,” Tate said as he delved beneath her thong and caught a few curls of her bush to gently tug at her heavy lips. “We would have done you.”
She squirmed at how Tate’s pull made her give off a succulent sound and damn, if she didn’t want to hear it again. On a shaky breath, she argued, “No, you would not.” I was your fat little next-door neighbor. “I was your tutor.”
“We could have been yours,” Cord murmured. “I would have loved to initiate you.”
“Oh, Cord.” I’d have given you anything you wanted.

Writer with Sizzle: Lynne Roberts

Please welcome Lynne Roberts! Lynne is giving away a free eBook copy of her sizzling book, First Date,  to one lucky commenter so be sure to give her some love.

Lia: What physical aspect does your heroine love most about your hero? Details, please!

Lynne: Oh, this is so tame but Jill would absolutely say she loves Bret’s slow, sexy smile. The rest of the package isn’t half bad though.

Lia: There is nothing sexier than a slow, sexy smile. What is the hottest scene you ever wrote?

Lynne: The hottest scene I’ve ever written is in the as of yet unnamed story of Caleb and Lily. I really can’t say much about it right now except it involves chocolate body paint, a shower head and a lot of steam.

Lia: Ooh, looking forward to that one! Where is the wildest place your characters have had sexual relations?

Lynne: A barn, stairway, public bathroom and a pond in the middle of the forest… You know, until my current work in progress, my characters haven’t had sex in a bed, or in a house for that matter. LOL. The wildest? Apart from the middle of the forest? ; ) I’d have to say the stairway.

Here’s an excerpt from First Date:

A brief flare of sanity intruded in her lust-clouded brain. Even with the storm, the barn wasn’t isolated. A maintenance man regularly checked on the place, or another realtor might even show the property.

Jill pulled away then almost lost her train of thought when Bret slid his finger under the white lace, stroking the rise of her breast above her nipple.

A surge of liquid further dampened her panties, and her legs tightened around his thighs.

She gasped. “Someone could come.”

“I sure as hell hope so,” Bret murmured.

Lia: Wow, I’m always amazed at how some writers can fit so much heat in so few words. Hot stuff! Has anything in your real life ever inspired a scene for your book?

Lynne: Sigh, I can’t believe I’m admitting this but here goes.

In my upcoming book, also from The Wilder Rose Press, the heroine is quite taken with the way the hero walks across a room.

Well, one day, I was at a red light and this man walked across the street. The way he moved was like poetry in motion. Yes, I know that’s cliché but it’s also true! He had this predatory roll of the hips that was both sexy and thrilling to watch. And then I realized he was walking to the high school, and no, he definitely wasn’t a teacher.

LOL. I think I actually closed my eyes. I felt like such a dirty old woman but it helped inspire my cougar story, AFTER HOURS.

Lia: Love it! Great story! Where can we find your sizzling books?

Lynne: You can find my books at The Wilder Rose Press http://thewildrosepress.com/

You can find me at http://lynneroberts.net/

Or on Twitter: Lynne_Roberts.

Lia: Excellent. Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Lynne!

Writer with Sizzle: Amber Skyze

Please welcome Amber Skyze! Amber is giving away a free eBook copy of her latest release, Talk Dirty to Topaz, to one lucky commenter, so be sure to give her some love.
Lia: What is your favorite sexual position to write about?
Amber: Hmmm, any sexual position is my favorite. :-)Seriously, I enjoy writing the sex scenes. Seven years ago I couldn’t say that. I was this shy, timid woman afraid of anything new. Let’s just say I had an awakening in my early thirties. Sometimes it’s difficult to find something new to write, but that’s the joy of all the sex books out there. They’re full of wonderful ideas.
Lia: Thank goodness for awakenings. 🙂 Have you ever lived out any of your scenes?
Amber: Well don’t you have to live out the sex scenes to make sure they’re possible? 😉

Lia: LOL! The hardships of research, right? Have your characters ever been caught having sex in public? How did that go?

Amber: In Body Shots, a new release coming in December from Ellora’s Cave, the heroine and hero get caught having sex on a pool table in a bar. I can’t tell you anymore because this book has suspense and I’d give away too many secrets.

Lia: Ooh, I like the sound of it already! What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Amber: My favorite thing about being a romance writer is being able to create characters in my own fantasy worlds. They can live out my dreams through my words. And of course they always have a happily-ever-after!
Lia: Where can readers find your sizzling books, Amber?
Amber: Readers can find my books at:
