Welcome Elodie! Tell us a little about why you
write erotic romance.
I started writing when I was seventeen. I
never did anything like submitting to publishers etc. until I was about twenty-five
and then queried to no avail.
I started writing again seriously a couple of
years ago because I had so many stories in my head.
I have published three erotic romance books
to date and I am working on another book right now.
They are available on Amazon kindle. I love
eBooks myself, and it’s rare now for me to buy a paperback or hardback.
I read heaps myself from across all types of
For my own writing people and emotions
inspires me. The complexity of life spurs me to write.
I find the world harsh. There’s not enough
love in it. Lots of people never find love. I write love stories with happy
endings to spread a little lightness around.
For instance my book ‘Millie
inspired through my day job.
I was talking to a young woman who was in the
antiques shop where I work and she was buying a little sculpture of two lovers
kissing. She said she had to have it because it was so nice to look at, as her
husband didn’t even kiss her anymore. I couldn’t say anything I just wrapped
the item, and stored the thought until the story burst out onto my laptop.
My books fall into the category of erotic
romance because I do write the sex scenes graphically and that’s because I want
the love the characters feel to show up properly in my stories.
I think too that readers have become used to reading more. They don’t
want the description of the romance to stop at the bedroom door.
My latest release ‘The Horoscope Writer’ was inspired by signs along a country road
when I was out driving one day in another county.
The main characters just started to flow into
my head and by the time I had driven home, which was a three hour journey
through the countryside, I had the book and characters completely ready.
Dominic Reed the horoscope writer is
desperate for love. He doesn’t know he has never had the kind of love he
suddenly finds with Cassie the female lead character. It ignites a sexual
passion in him he didn’t know he could feel.
My books do contain graphic sex in the love scenes but they are love
scenes, romantic and the characters are driven by love.
is about a man, Dominic, who is a writer and has lots of different writing jobs
for magazines amongst which is that of horoscope writing. He is a lonely soul,
living in the country on a funny country lane where a few artisan’s workshops
are. Fortunately he has a friend there too, Jeremy, who has a workshop, design
studio there on the lane.
Dominic is lonely. His last relationship
broke up a couple of years prior to the opening of the story and he really
There is a workshop to let on the lane and
Cassie comes along to rent it.
Dominic is instantly attracted to her when he
sees her in Jeremy’s office and she finds Dominic irresistible.
There is a mild paranormal streak running
through what is an erotic romance because Dominic has been influenced by his
great uncle who was also a horoscope writer.
This is a love story, erotic and enticing.
“Can I get you anything Cassie? Coffee?”
She smiled at him thinking he had perhaps
changed his mind about going to bed together.
“Okay coffee is good” she answered.
Dominic washed his hands and made coffee.
Cassie watched him.
“If you’ve changed your mind Dominic it’s
okay”, she told him. It was what Dominic needed.
He went to her and held her head to kiss her.
The kiss was like nectar to Cassie and she began to put her hand up inside his
sweater to reach his skin. Dominic held her head with one hand kissing her
almost desperately as he used the other hand to unzip her jeans and push them
down her thighs. Cassie unzipped his jeans. Dominic felt almost lightheaded, he
couldn’t stop kissing her, and he put his hand down inside her underwear to
press his palm against her lower stomach.
Cassie gasped and searched for a way to lower
his jeans and feel his hard bottom. She felt his fingers reach her entrance and
she parted her legs a little so that he could push them into her.
Dominic’s voice was a whisper.
“Cassie let’s go to bed. I want to feel you
naked against me. I need you”.
She nodded slightly as his face was still
against hers. She moaned involuntarily as he took his fingers from her.
Dominic took her jacket, and put it over the
back of a kitchen chair.
Cassie pulled her jeans up leaving them
Dominic held her hand to lead her up to his
bedroom. The staircase was surprisingly wide, and they could walk up there side
by side. Dominic’s room was at the end of the landing, and he pushed the door
open with the side of his body as he turned to hold Cassie again and kiss her.
Somehow, though it wasn’t clear how to either
of them when they thought about it later, they undressed, and lay clasped
against each other on the bed breathing into each other’s mouths when the
sensation of being skin to skin overwhelmed them for a few moments.
Dominic traced his fingers down her stomach
reaching her entrance to find she was wet for him. His lips found hers and their
tongues touched gently as his fingers began to work magic on Cassie. She moved
against his palm and made little sounds into his kiss as she reached for him.
He thrust into her hands and they both groaned with need.
“Cassie wait I’ll find a condom”, he said, as
she began to whisper her need to him.
“Dominic I need you inside me now”, she
whispered over, and over as she kissed him.
Her hands felt cool on him and he was still
thrusting his hips as he moved his fingers in her. Cassie was close to coming
and she kissed Dominic shaking a little against his lips.
“Dominic I’m going to—”. He knew, and he
decided to give her that first.
He kissed her tenderly and moved his thumb
over her bud, his fingers deep inside her. “Cassie I know, let go, do it”, he
whispered, and left his lips soft against her mouth as she moaned and thrust on
his fingers coming. It seemed to last a long time and Dominic liked that. He
looked at her with love as she finally opened her eyes and smiled a little at
He wanted to be inside her and he reached
over her to the drawer in the bedside table to find a condom. He couldn’t find
one, and because he was kissing Cassie as she stroked his erection, he stopped
kissing her to look into the drawer. Cassie took the opportunity to move down his
body and take him into her mouth. She felt his intake of breath as she did it
and held his hips still before moving a hand to hold him low on his shaft and
Dominic let the feeling of complete pleasure
soothe his worry about not finding a condom. He held Cassie’s head gently with
his hands in her hair. As he looked down at her, Cassie shifted her body and
moved her leg over his so that he could feel her entrance wet against the top
of his shin. Her hair fell over his lower stomach. She was doing amazing things
with her tongue and his gaze fell on the lovely curve of her bottom and length
of her satiny thighs. Dominic felt his orgasm rise up from his thighs as
Cassie’s hair feathered across them. The sensation rippled up him all the way
to his lips and he groaned. Cassie kept him in her mouth until she knew he had
completely finished. She had never known quite what to do with the mouthful of
seed and this seemed like such a lot. Without thinking too much about it she
swallowed and then kissed up his stomach and chest until she nuzzled against
Dominic could feel her moving gently against
his thigh and sighed at the pleasure it gave him to feel her damp entrance on
“Cassie”, he whispered, as she sucked a
little at the base of his throat.
“Cassie”, he whispered again, and he lifted
her gently up so that her head was level with his. He kissed her tenderly and
then kept her cuddled against him. They both closed their eyes and lay quietly
together until they slept for a short time.
