Guest Blog: I Want My Words To Make You Sweat by Kassanna

For more days than I care to admit to I look at a computer screen. Always at the back of my mind…What if?

Then, without notice a shock of electricity crackles up my spine. I flex my hand to hear my knuckles pop. For the briefest of moments I swear I can see my keyboard glow.

Inspiration has struck.

Now allow me to explain.

I write erotic romance.

I’m sure I could write something else, mystery, horror or even mainstream romance. I don’t. But hear me out. The excitement of creating a titillating story that entertains and entices the reader, to me that is beyond cool. The idea of my characters making you wipe the sweat from your brow spurs me to write more. When you pick up one of my books, I want your heart to beat faster in anticipation as your e-reader, Nook or Kindle downloads it.

And when you’re done…well I hope you’ll need a cigarette or a glass of wine, if you don’t smoke, possibly even a cold shower, because the story was that good for you.

Here’s what I’m talking about.

Mattie pulled away from his finger and turned her head to watch the stage. A woman wrapped in creamy white satin was being lowered from the ceiling. The closer to the bed she came, the more of her body was revealed as she was unraveled from the material. Her movements rocked the cloth, swinging to the beat of the music. The sway of her body trapped in the thin material created an erotic picture against the backdrop of red and black.

There was a shuffle throughout the room. Mattie turned to check the entrances, and noticed men wearing absolutely nothing. She rubbed her eyes and looked again. Yes, those were two very naked men approaching the stage. Their hard, muscular bodies glistened in the spotlights as they walked the few steps onto the stage.

Mattie pressed her palms together, unsure what to do with her hands. She glanced around her once more. No one appeared to notice her, too riveted by the show progressing in front of them. A hand gripped her knee, slowly inching its way up her leg. The heat from the friction of the palm rubbing the thin fabric of her slacks seared a path forward.

Mattie swallowed.

As a reader can you imagine what’s going on in Mattie’s mind? Perhaps even replace her? I want the images I create with words to float through your mind. If even one of my stories can make you sweat then I consider my job done and I appreciate the fact that you gave my novella a chance. And if by chance you pick up my book to re-read just because, then you’ll understand why I write erotic romance.


Out Now

Whip Me Real Good (Club Lexx, 1)

Mattie couldn't believe her luck...

Not only had the Lexington Corporation agreed to fund her grant for the small organization she'd founded for abused women but she also received a complimentary ticket to the year's hottest party. The Erotic Exotic Event. Mattie's pleasure was two-fold. This was her chance to thank J. Lexington personally for choosing her little charity, and she could let loose a little from her stodgy persona to do it. She had no clue what she was in for.

John was a strong believer of giving back to the community which was why he chose a non-profit entity to support every year. What he didn't expect was the latte beauty, who looked like a librarian with the moves of a stripper, to come bounding through the club's gold doors. When the opportunity presented itself, he snatched it with both hands.

That's when things really start to heat up.

Be Warned: sex toys, BDSM, public exhibitionism.

 Alexandra "Lex" Lexington is on the run. She thought she could handle the stalker that dogged her every step. Quickly realizing how wrong she was she sought the protection of her brother John Lexington. That brought on a new set of problems, namely John's sexy security specialist Adam Manchester. Feelings, she thought she'd buried for the infuriating man, have risen to the surface and the idea of rekindling an affair that never had a chance to really get started has her mounting a plan of seduction that he'll never see coming.

But her stalker has found her again with deadly intentions.

Adam Manchester handled John's security for the Lexington Corp, his office though is Club Lexx. He and John have been friends since childhood, he knows the family well, they all grew up together. Lex, she's special, not just to her brothers, but to him and not in a brotherly fashion. He's fought his feelings for her for years, always throwing up roadblocks when she got to close. Now John is asking him to look after her while he's away on business. His problem, how does he watch the women that he desires to possess without acting on those long denied feelings.

Sex Ought to Be Luscious ~ Decadent Publishing
Mike has watched Lynda for months. He wants her. He's asked her out several times only to be told no on numerous occasions. Her reasoning baffles him, he sees no problem with her being older than his twenty-two and he doesn't think it's anybody's business that they work together. If she would simply give him a chance he could show her exactly how much fun they could have.
Lynda has done everything within her power to discourage Mike's attraction to her. He's idealistic, she however resides in the real world and an eighteen year age difference is no small amount of time. To top it off she's his boss and she can't keep avoiding him. The only option she has is to nip his growing infatuation in the bud. She simply has to figure out exactly how to do that when she actually wants him as badly as he desires her. 

Ooh! (fanning self) I'm still recovering from that excerpt. And your covers are just so delectable. Thanks for sharing that with me and my readers, Kassanna. I wish you luck with sales of your current book and the release of your upcoming books.
