STUFF YOUR STOCKING BLOGFEST: FLAME ARDEN

Photobucket


What a Lady Wants… a Lady gets


Sometimes.

What if what the heroine wants is not good for her? Of for the hero?

What if the two are like poison to each other and bring out the worst in each other?

Or he gives her hives?

What if he is exactly what she needs, but the kind of man her father made her promise she'd stay away from?

If you've always wanted to write an erotic novel but don't know where to start, this is the perfect plot. There's plenty of opportunities for great conflict, and if the heroine is irresistibly drawn to the bad boy hero, you'll find lots of opportunities to write hot sex scenes.
,br> What if the heroine can't please herself and her family? What will she decide to do then?

Okay, let's suppose the hero is her absolute worst choice for a mate, but the heroine's constantly drawn to him, and her thoughts go to him whenever the hero is not around. Can she make it work? your heroine may wonder.

Not if she tries to change him, and not if she expects him to change, but if the heroine loves him, warts and all, she can overlook his faults if the hero has enough good qualities to attract and sustain her love.

No woman wants a doormat for a mate. Give your hero backbone. Let the couple disagree on principle, but lovingly come back together through a little compromise.

Don't make your heroine a barracuda eating her way through life at someone else's expense. A little assertiveness goes a long way. Let your heroine stand up for her beliefs, but refuse to step on someone else's toes when she does.

Men prefer their women soft and yielding. I like to write about a feminine heroine with unshakeable inner strength. Like the early settlers who crossed the prairie in wagon trains, a woman never knows what she'll be called on to bear, and that strength will come in handy if her mate loses his job or becomes disabled and she has to become head of the household. It's all right to set goals and attempt to reach them, but have your characters take time to lend others a helping hand.

In Christmas Eve, my erotic novel Evernight Publishing recently released, Eve Adohr runs a successful real estate company, but her latest relationship just tanked. Casino owner Nick St. Clair fears the women he meets are all barracudas, nipping at his heals to get their hands on his money, so he avoids close relationships until he's snowbound with Eve.

In a blinding snowstorm on Christmas Eve, the jaded owner of a posh Las Vegas casino mistakes the stranded real estate agent at his door for the classy call girl he's expecting to heat up his holiday.

Passions ignite. Eve has learned men believe bedding her the most direct route to her wealth. Nick's female companions always want the keys to his Ferrari and to his safe deposit box, never to his heart, so he distrusts the entire lot and expects to simply walk away unscathed when his brief time with Eve ends.

Neither expects to give marriage a try, but hearts have a way of going where cautious souls refuse, and after screwing their heads off for six days and nights Nick and Eve discover without love their former lives were little more than empty shells.

I don't want a door mat either for a mate. Great blurb.

I like the suggested build-up to thicken the plot when writing a romance. Opposites do attract and making the couple face obstacles tends to create drama. Thanks for the tips and sharing your thoughts with us! debbifarmer@yahoo.com
