I love reading and writing sexy romance. You know those sweet little romance stories where love scenes end with a closed bedroom door? Those really annoy me. I know some folks are more comfortable with that kind of thing, but to me, we all know what’s going on. Why cut the story? It halts the flow of the story like screeching brakes.
On the other hand, writing hot love scenes can be tricky. Obviously, you want to avoid ‘purple prose.’ No ‘throbbing manhood’, no ‘petals of lovliness’ for corn’s sake. But sometimes, you run out of words.
Sabrina Devonshire, talented author of spicy romance has a new book out that will help. It’s a reference book of sorts, a compilation of descriptive words and phrases that can help you write hot sex scenes readers will love!
Here’s my Amazon review:
This is a terrific resource for writers of spicy romance! As an erotic romance author, I know that I want to create sex scenes that transport the reader into the story. But after a while, I realize that I’m writing the same scenes over and over again. As I try to avoid ‘purple prose’ at all costs, the romance can get a little dry. It can be so frustrating when you want to paint a sexy love scene and you just can’t hit on the perfect word.
Enter talented author Sabrina Devonshire, who has compiled a collection of descriptive words and phrases, a resource for writers to use when they need just the right term to move their love scenes forward. Trust me, this will be at my side from now on. I highly recommend this book for anyone who writes sexy romance! 5 BIG STARS!!
