Me Wild #1- Love in the Fast Lane novella series
By: Gwendolyn Grace
Release date: Feb 26th







I was standing in the middle of nowhere with no real destination in mind.

There was only the dire need to disappear from Charleston. With my head tilted up to the gray sky and

my eyes closed, I let the light droplets of rain fall onto my face. I’d reached a crossroads in my life and

was trying to find a reason to keep going. I had no idea a hurricane was coming and fate would choose

that moment for our paths to cross.
“Hey! You okay?” A voice called out to me in a deep southern drawl,

pulling me out of my fog. “Can I give you a ride somewhere?”

I opened my eyes and found a pair of intense blue eyes staring back at me. His name was Fox. He had an

irresistibly sexy grin, and judging by his fast car, a need for speed. His timing couldn't have been more

perfect. I was looking to start a little trouble, since it was what I did best and he seemed …

#Romantic #romance or #Erotica, #Valentine’s Week celebration: Casey Sheridan #GuestBlog

#Romantic #romance or #Erotica, #Valentine’s Week celebration, Day 3 and today's guest is Casey Sheridan, author of EPIC eBook Awards 2012 Finalist, Ruby Red Metallic.

Casey explains the differences between an erotic romance and an erotica novel.

" Erotic romance by definition is a romance with erotic elements (according to RWA). The main theme of the story is a romance and it usually has to have a HEA or HFN (happy for now) ending.

Erotica doesn't necessarily have to have any romance. There needs to be a well developed story, character development, etc. Erotica is not porn, so it's not just about inserting tab A into slot B. Usually, erotica doesn't have to have an HEA.

I think it depends on the author how much vivid and detailed sex scenes are in an erotic romance and an erotica, although erotica authors tend get very detailed.

Erotica usually uses language such as cock, pussy, etc. Erotic romance authors (some of them, anyway) use those words sparingly, substituti…

Here is what Georgia has to say...- Could you explain the differences between an erotic romance and an erotica novel?Georgia Le Carre: For real? :)
An erotic romance would wither away and die without a HEA and an erotica novel will be happy with another one night stand!- How much vivid and detailed are sex scenes in an erotic romance and an erotica? Georgia Le Carre: Sex scenes wear g-strings in erotic romances and go wonderfully nude in erotica.- Should erotic romance and erotica authors publish under a pen name?Georgia Le Carre: Not should, but may.

#Romantic #romance or #Erotica, #Valentine’s Week celebration, Day 2 and it's time for an Excerpt!

I'm happy that I can share with you an excerpt from Zack Love's "The Syrian Virgin"!



The scene (from "The Syrian Virgin") depicts 18-year-old Anissa's very first date, which happens to take place on Valentine's Day...Her longtime crush, Michael, takes her ice skating in Central Park.
"At 3 p.m. on February 14, the security guard for my dorm called me with a cute message from my visitor. “There’s a Mr. Kassab downstairs who wants to know if you’ll be his Valentine today.” I quickly looked in the mirror one last time before leaving, and felt butterflies in my stomach as I closed the door and made my way to the elevator.

When I arrived in the lobby, I saw that Michael was waiting for me by the door. He held it open for me and we exited the building into the crisp New York air.
As we walked towards the subway stop on 116th Street, I lightly share…

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! February is the month of love and this year I contribute to the celebrations by hosting a guest-post extravaganza on my "Penny Writes" blogs, on Wordpress and on Blogger. My first guest is bestselling author Kimberly Lewis. Kimberly Lewis writes sweet, sexy contemporary romances filled with heart and humor. Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, this country girl caught the creative bug at an early age, doing everything from drawing to writing short stories. After dabbling in many genres, Kimberly rediscovered her love of romance stories and soon after published her first novel.


- Could you explain the differences between an erotic romance and an erotica novel?

Kimberly Lewis: "I would say that the biggest difference between the two is a ʺhappily ever afterʺ ending. With erotica novels we follow characters that are on a sexual journey, and that journey may or may not include romance. I think these novels focus more on the ch…
