Thanks for allowing me to visit with you ladies today!
Virgin in an Erotic Romance? Sure thing! The heroine, Catriona, in my paranormal historical erotic romance, Beast in a Kilt, Secrets Volume 29 Indulge Your Fantasies, is a virgin. But she’s a very adventurous, brazen one. She’s never experienced anything more than a kiss, but she’s seen a few things she shouldn’t have and had an erotic dream. Add to this the fact that she’s been in love with the hero, Torr, for ten years and she’s ready to pursue and seduce him. She may not know what she’s doing, but she’s willing to learn along the way. And hopefully Torr will teach her a few things… okay, several things in the process. I’d always heard it was very difficult, if not impossible, to write a virgin into an erotic romance. I actually found it to be pretty easy. It all goes back to motivation and emotion. Plus she’s not a 30 year old beautiful virgin in modern day (slightly more difficult to believe.) Historical virgins are easier to write, in my opinion. Catriona needs to seduce Torr (she believes) so he’ll marry her and she won’t have to marry the terrible man her mother picked out for her. Death would be preferable. Besides, she’s been in love with Torr and aroused by him even before she know what those two things meant. Torr is determined not to take her virginity because of some possible life-or-death consequences, but that doesn’t prevent him from showing her some other interesting pleasures they might indulge in. But she doesn’t fight fair! He had no idea the innocent little lass could be so manipulative as to spike his drink with aphrodisiac. What’s a hardened Highland warrior to do but give the lady what she wants? How do you feel about virgins or almost innocent heroines in erotic romance? I'll give away a copy of my ebook Kilted Lover to one commenter. I'll put a blurb about Kilted Lover below.

Kilted Lover: When kilted cabertosser Scott MacPherson tosses Leslie Livingston over his shoulder to rescue her from two armed thieves trying to steal her priceless amulet, they are thrust into a deadly but sexy adventure. Though Leslie already has a lukewarm, uninterested boyfriend, her attraction to Scott is whitehot and undeniable. She wants to lick this tall, muscular alpha male all over and explore the depths of eroticism with him. But will he want anything more than one night once the danger is behind them?
