All month long you’ve heard from the members of TEAM STOMP, both authors and bloggers alike. They’ve talked about their books or their favorite book/characters that can put the STOMP on their enemies. And yes many of the STOMPERS do enjoy a little somethin’ somethin’ from the romp side. After all, all that STOMPING gets the heart rate up and makes you glad you’re still alive so why not celebrate a great STOMP with a romp afterwards.
But there are only so many ways to get creative with the romping. It takes a truly masterful heroine or hero to keep the STOMPING creative. So I’d like to leave you with some of my favorite ways that my favorite stomper takes down the bad guys.
Ms. Gin Blanco from Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series. Oh sure Gin excels at using her 5 point arsenal of silverstone knives but they are certainly not a crutch for her. Just take a look at some of the ways she’s killed with things that were just within her reach when a knife was not handy.
- Screw to the throat
- Pen to the balls (My personal favorite)
- Electrocution by computer
- Paint brush handle through the eye
- Ice knife
When it comes to Gin Blanco, aka The Spider, she’s too busy STOMPING the bad guys to talk about her feelings. I’ll leave you with some Gin quotes and you tell me which you prefer? STOMP or Romp.
“No, we didn’t really get a chance to talk about anything. There was just blood, dead giants, and a lot of awkward pauses.” – Deadly Sting
“Have I ever told you how scary it is that you think of heels in terms of their possible shiv potential?” – Deadly Sting
“Emotions were for those too weak to turn them off.” – Spider’s Bite
“You can work with me—or you can wade through the blood and bodies after I’m done.” – Spider’s Bite
“Killing people was far easier than making polite chitchat.” – Tangled Threads

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
