Why I chose to write erotic contemporary romance by Lacey Wolfe

Most people look at me and see this girl who looks sweet and innocent. Often times when I tell someone what kind of books I write, they are intrigued that I wrote something like that. Then comes the question, why did I choose erotic romance?

It’s simple. While I don’t always require a book to get as detailed as I write the intimate scenes, the last thing I want is for the author to just shut me out. A few years ago I was reading a popular author. The chemistry between the two characters was flying off the pages. When these two finally came together, I was excited. Then the author ended the scene and started later in the day. The characters didn’t even discuss what they did. I stared at my pages feeling unsatisfied. What did they do in that bedroom? How could she just shut me out?

It was then I knew I could never do that to a reader. If I was going to write romance, my readers were darn well gonna know what these two did between the sheets, or wherever they made it to before tearing each other’s clothes off.

I have read plenty of contemporaries that gave me enough that I didn’t need to know each detail. To be honest, when I wrote Amber’s Muse and decided to give it an erotic edge, it was more to see if I could do it. Could I actually write the dirty details? I then found, I could. I enjoyed it. I got to create what these two did. So, my style of being a contemporary romance author switched over to erotic contemporary romance author.

Do I plan to always write dirty? No, I plan to write something cleaner before long so my mom can read it. But for now, I hope I leave my readers satisfied and never staring at their e-reader wondering what just happened…or at least in the intimate department.

Interesting commentary. I know of many books where they got together and then ... nothing. It was most disappointing. Thanks

we loved Amber's Muse and like you, get disappointed when the bedroom door gets shut in our faces. The problem is, most people are either too embarrassed or too scared to write sex scenes, in case they get it wrong, or if people judge them on it, so it's refreshing to read a story, where not only do you get to read the important scene, but that the scenes are so well written. The scenes in Amber's Muse are erotic, satisfying and above all, interesting. Amber and Jax are great characters and the plot is definitely more original than most romantic fiction.

I read Amber's Muse a few weeks ago. It was the first erotic romance I had ever read, and it made me feel like I was back in eigth grade skimming through Forever by Judy Blume to get to the "good parts". The thing about Amber's Muse is that it is really well done, and it is pretty much all "good parts", with a little librarian thrown in to tie it all together. It was interesting to read why you write said "good parts" ! Haha! :)

Great points! I too dislike when the author writes amazing chemistry but all is left to the imagination what when on behind the doors. NO! I want to know LOL

See! *points at the post* that’s what erotic romance should be!! Sex not just for sex’s sake, but for a reason! I too have read books and then turned the page, all eager to read what went on to during those hot and sweaty moments, only to find it completely skipped. It pissed me right off and prompted me to start writing my own erotic MS. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who thought that way.
Thanks for sharing Lacey!
