Writer with Sizzle: Cari Quinn

Please welcome Cari Quinn!

A little about Cari:

Cari Quinn wrote her first story – a bible parable – in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. She attempted her first romance in junior high, long before she’d ever read one. Writing what she knew always took a backseat to what she wanted to know, and that still holds true today. Cari’s genres of choice include contemporary, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, urban fantasy and paranormal. Recently she discovered erotic romance. Oh, how far she’s come…

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

Cari: Holly’s fond of just about all of Alex’s attributes. I understand why. I happen to agree he’s pretty hot. 😉 But the thing she loves most, physically, about him? Probably his size (take that any way you would like, ladies) and his strength. Holly’s not a small woman – she’s tall and full-figured – but Alex is even taller than she is and he has no trouble picking her up and making her feel womanly. She’s also very appreciative of his stamina. (As you will see if you read Full Disclosure, he’s certainly…enthusiastic. LOL)

Lia: Be still my heart! What does your heroine love most about your hero? Least?

Cari: Tough question. She’d be tempted to say his body first – hey, the guy’s hot and young and used to spend lots of hours surfing, so he’s pretty ripped – but the truth is she loves his sense of adventure. Alex isn’t afraid of putting his heart on the line and he lives life to the fullest. He’s wild and impulsive and loves to do whatever pops into his mind.

What she loves least? Probably the same thing, LOL. Holly’s a bit more pragmatic about life and is used to living by set rules – and those rules don’t include dating a work colleague that’s twelve years younger than she is. Alex doesn’t see the problem. That whole “wants what he wants when he wants it” thing rearing its ugly head yet again. 😉

Lia: These two sound like a great match. Love it! Have your characters used sex toys? How did that go?

Cari: Oh yeah, they have! Actually one sex toy in particular plays a pretty big role in the book. Since I’m not nearly as much a woman of the world as Holly is, I’d never heard of a tongue vibrator until I was stumbling around online one night. But the story possibilities were too much for me to resist.

Here’s a snippet from one of the scenes where Alex whips out his Tongue Zinger, though here he just uses it like a regular vibrator. He’s an inventive guy. 😉


“Playing hard to get, are you?”

“Maybe.” Holly’s smile glimmered. “Gonna…come and get me?”

“After you come first.” He palmed his toy and pressed a button, setting off a low buzz as he clamped his fingers over her swollen nipple.

“Alex.” She jolted as he upped the vibration. “Oh, God, Alex.”

“I like it when you moan my name.” He hit the button again and the amps increased. She quaked beneath him. “Do it again.”

“What the hell is that? Some kind of stun gun?” She rolled her head to the side, searching for the source of the sensation.

“Yeah, a miniature one.” Alex kept his fingers curved around the toy, blocking her view. “Stop analyzing. Just enjoy.”

He bumped the vibrator up to the highest setting and directed his attention to her other breast. This time, he took a circuitous path over its fullness before reaching the tip. She whimpered, practically writhing from his ministrations.

Sweet hell, she would feel amazing around him. Under him. And he didn’t know how much longer he could wait.

Lia: Um, I think I really like Alex!! Hot excerpt, Cari! Where can readers find and read the rest of this story?
