Today I have Siren Allen on the blog talking about the ups and downs of writing a seductive romance novel. Have any of you read Siren Allen before? I haven't but I think I'm going to have to pick this one up. It sounds like my cup of tea!
About Siren Allen
Hi, my name is Siren Allen. I’m a writer and lover of all things erotic and romantic. I reside in southern Mississippi where I write steamy romances that are guaranteed to make you blush. When I’m not listening to the characters in my head and jotting down their adventures, I am busy working as a Clinical Laboratory Technician.
I love to travel, preferably with my husband, so he can do all of the driving. I enjoy time with my family, who are just as silly as I am. I have no children…yet, wish me luck! My hobbies are reading, writing and shopping, though I hate trying on clothing. If I wasn’t a writer or a Laboratory Professional, I would probably be a Secret Agent. But that’s the beauty of being a writer; you can create your own world and be whoever you want to be. In my imaginary world, I am Queen and my siblings are my minions.

Some people find it hard to write steamy romances. They enjoy creating tension between the characters and showing how the Hero and Heroine progress from friends to lovers but when it comes time to write the sex scenes they become uncomfortable. But me….I’m the opposite. I love writing steamy romances and smoking hot sex scenes. I enjoy inviting the readers into my character’s bedrooms and letting them see all of the naughtiness my Hero and Heroine are capable of. But there is a down side to writing seductive stories.
That down side is repetition. There are only so many ways I can say he kissed her here or licked her there. My fear is that soon all of my love scenes in all of my romances will sound the same….and that would be a horrible thing. To keep that from happening I’ve made a folder called Sex Therapy. ☺
I store all of my sex scenes from all of my stories in my Sex Therapy folder. Also in that folder is a creative listing of synonyms for certain body parts. Whenever I’m writing a new sex scene and it begins to sound like something I’ve already written, I go back to my ST folder and read other sex scenes to see if I’m being repetitive. If I am, I change the scene to make it unique. Sex in romance is great, as long as you spice it up and make sure you’re not simply saying the same thing over and over again. I want my readers to need an ice-cold glass of water after they read my seductive stories. If they aren’t fanning themselves after reading my sex scenes, then I haven’t done my job. ☺
One bite was all it took…
It’s that time of year again. Alyssa Blakely is busy writing in her fantasy diary, filling it with all her forbidden, sexual fantasies. The star: her very sexy boss, Devin Jordan. Too bad for her, he’s never given her a second glance.
Or so she thought…
After a steamy kiss under the mistletoe and a night of wild sex, Alyssa has the bite to prove just how wrong she was.
Devin Jordan has found his mate. The only problem: she’s human. He’s not. Can he prove to her that his inner beast can be both naughty and nice? Or will her fear of the unknown keep him from claiming her?
