GUEST BLOG: PIPER DENNA

Feel the Burn?


What is it about firemen? The world over, they turn women to (flaming) mush.

Is it the built-in hero factor? Maybe it’s all the sturdy gear they wear—uniforms tend to score big with women, and a fireman’s equipment is probably the hardiest of all. Or could it be the prime physical condition firemen have to maintain?

Personally, I think those fireman photos where our hero is tenderly holding an infant are the hottest. So maybe it’s just the pure rough-n-tough bravery we like.

In any case, I couldn’t resist using a fireman in one of my stories, and it just debuted at Cobblestone Press. A Fireman for Christmas is an erotic novella (long enough for a nice break during the holiday hoopla and spicy enough to warm up a cold winter’s eve):

One more Christmas lusting after her older brother’s best friend? Timi might lose her mind. Fed up with family holidays, she rents a cabin for one, planning a Christmas escape with her drawings. But after numerous sketches turn out to be her rendition of Clay in the Hottest Firemen Calendar poster, she realizes location is just a technicality.

Fireman Clay can’t imagine spending Christmas without Timi around to ogle. Hearing she’s holed up in a lovers’ retreat, he can’t resist seeking her out. This year, he’s determined to start a fire and claim the gift he’s always wanted.

Happy holidays!

Piper Denna

Romance is sexy. And often funny, and sometimes tangled up with suspense. Let’s face it: all sorts of things get mixed up with romance in real life.

Piper Denna’s stories are not cut-and-dried romance. She wants her characters to deal with issues female readers can relate to: independence and trust, empowerment, inhibitions, an unfaithful partner, motherhood. Sometimes her characters make mistakes and often her “bad guys” are not 100% bad. Mostly she wants to take the reader on an emotional journey to a happy ending (with a few enviable sexual encounters along the way!).

When she’s not writing, she edits, raises two “tweens” along with her husband, and has an evil day job.

She enjoys books (or movies) with a comedic twist and hopefully a love story, too.

Sexiest parts of a man in Piper’s opinion? The hands and eyes. Shoulders are nice too, and of course, great pecs are never amiss…

what's hottest about firemen you ask; well, I believe it is because of the uniform, the risk they are in every time they go out to a fire(very sexy). They put themselves on the line to save people, buildings, etc. They are heroes.

I think that firemen are sexy because they live on the edge of danger a lot of the time.

I think fireman fascinate women because they are real heroes; unselfish and brave.

LeslieJane said...

Yep, unselfish and brave. Plus, the image you gave of the fireman holding an infant, very sexy.

My brother's nickname is Piper, since he plays the bagpipes, so I like your name.
