Photo Tuesday Tease: hold your breath

I'm traveling this week. ...ah the wonders of the Northern California coast. I don't think I've ever been anywhere that has spoken to me in quite the same way. The redwood forests are breathtaking.

But you didn't stop by to hear about my travels did you :)

No! Today is Photo Tuesday Tease.

I spent the morning driving through the mountains and reveling in the occasional ray of sunlight. So I chose this shot for today.

If I try and do anything when I write a sensual scene, it is capture the moment this photographer illustrates so well---the hold-your-breath time-is-suspended moment when a touch turns intimate. There is so much worth celebrating in that moment...anticipation, appreciation, heat, hunger...it's all good.

So where ever you are out there & whatever you are doing, take a moment to savor your own memories of such a moment. (do I hear a collective sigh?)

Photo Tuesday Tease...the foot tickle

Today's Photo Tuesday Tease it a wee bit small. But damn, what a shot.

It's from Vanity Fair a few years back. Ah, Viggo. The man just oozes sex appeal. I just love the way he is looking at her...and, since most of my stories involve bondage play, well...

A New Review for Bound to be Mine

I'm so tickled that Bound to be Mine just got reviewed by "Got Erotic Romance"! Here's what reviewer Jillian Carroll had to say:

“One thing Bound to be Mine has is plenty of erotic sex…but more than that, it has lots of emotion. Well thought out by the author, I could feel Lisa and Ben’s fear, pain, love, respect and ultimately, hope. Whether vanilla or kinky, sex is only as satisfying as the partners make it. Lisa and Ben know exactly what satisfies them in the bedroom ~ and it is extrinsically linked to the love and adoration they have for each other everywhere else. If you like the kinkier side of romance as well as a good love story, read Bound to be Mine!”

Photo Tuesday Tease: Just About to Kiss.

It's now mid-April, which means I've missed one week of Photo Tuesday Tease--unconscionably remiss!!

I won't give platitudinal (is that a word?) excuses. But I will serve up the pic that serves as the heart of my book trailer, a Big Stock photo I purchased that I like to think of as Just About to Kiss.

There's something of the 80's/90's I'm-so-in-love montage-ness in this photo, and I think that's why I love it so much.

I searched through hundreds of stock photos before choosing this one for Lisa and Ben. Part of the reason I love it lies in her zen-like submission to the moment, and his dominant-but-slightly-bewildered look....


With my apologies for my lost Tuesday...
