Character Kinks

Many of my characters have a little kink to them. It not only adds some interest and character depth, but it keeps things interesting for me while I'm writing the sex scenes. There are only so many generic tab-A-slot-B sex scenes an author can stand to write, you know!

Craig and Jesse (Assumption of Desire) have a little spanking thing going on. Jamie and Casey from "Dead on Her Feet" like to do it in semi-public places where they might get caught. An early incarnation of Safe Harbor's Rafe had a wicked fingernail fetish, though that one didn't make it to publication.

In my new release, Foxfur, one of my main characters surprised me with a new one, for me: Cheng loves performing bathing service. He likes scrubbing his clients clean, caring for their hair, and then massaging scented oils into their skin -- and he especially likes taking advantage of their   His secret dream, in fact, is to earn his freedom and set up his own bathhouse in the capital city, where he grew up.

Cover foxfur 900

Pleasure-slave Cheng takes no particular note of the red-haired woman when she purchases his services. But the morning after her departure, Cheng is taken into custody by the Emperor's own guards and brought before one of the rare and terrifying Chained Mages. Already frightened and confused, things go from bad to worse for Cheng when the mage reveals the demonic nature of the red-haired woman. Now not only Cheng's life, but the lives of everyone around him, depend on their finding the fox-demon as soon as possible.

As a Chained Mage, Jin is at best feared, and at worst, despised. But he can't allow his personal feelings to interfere with his mission, not even when his admiration for the slave deepens. In fact, Jin's love may result in a disaster. The fox-demon has placed a spell in Cheng, a spell designed to turn his sexual energy to a murderous ends, endangering himself and everyone around him. And worst of all, they're not the only hunters on the fox-demon's trail!

She writes erotic romances for a wide span of worlds, genres, and orientations, and is also a senior editor for Torquere Press. When she's not writing or editing, she loves a wide range of generally nerdy hobbies, including reading, photography, tabletop games, geeky yarncraft, and silly smartphone games.
