Heaton did it again. She owes me a package of batteries. (TMI I know) She really knows how to write a sex scene orgasmic experience. But her books aren’t porn. The smut has some real plot and heart to go with it, which I love. Seduce is the third book in the VET series and in this one we get to see Antoine, the quite and very cold owner of the Vampirerotique theatre, get seduced by a young and shy vamp, Sera. Sera is a “baby” in terms of the vampire world. But when she sets her mind to seducing the very old and sexy vamp that is always at the side of the stage during the shows at the theatre, she pulls out everything […]

Guest Blog + Giveaway by JN Duncan

Creativity Beyond Writing and How It Helps the Author by JN Duncan I’d like to thank the Nympho (always wanted to say that, lol) for having me on the blog today. She said to write about whatever I wanted, which of course made my brain spin in helpless, perpetual motion, going nowhere fast. Thumbing through my old files for ideas, I came upon pictures I’ve created and used during the writing process, and thought perhaps readers might be mildly entertained by seeing what this particular author does. I’ve drawn longer than I’ve aspired to write (long time), and while I make no claims to actually being any good at it, I do enjoy it a lot. It’s time consuming, so I don’t get the chance […]
