As an erotic romance writer, I'm fairly committed to the naughty side of life, at least in my books. And you know what? I write these naughty books for me. They're stories I want to tell or want to read. They're characters with flaws I want to investigate, or challenges I want to see them overcome. Each sex scene is naughty but hinges on these characters' conflicts, giving them another venue to explore and grow in. They all end very happily, but there's angst laced in the trials and tribulations the characters must face to be together.
This naughty plan to write what I want to read led to Spy Games: Trained for Seduction being named one of Smitten With Reading's Top Reads of 2012. It was a story I dreamed up while my husband snored and kept me awake every night. Here's the blurb (because a print copy is one of the prizes!)
Blurb for Trained for Seduction (Spy Games #1)
Emma Walters didn't choose to be a spy, but when her crazy father was caught selling bombs to the wrong people, she was given a choice--become a spy or rot in jail. Her exciting new life as agent Kate Wells becomes more so when she discovers her new boss is the agent--undercover and investigating her father at the time--who took her to third base. Emma is already half in love with the dark and dangerous Chase Sanders. Kate wants nothing more than for him to finish what he started, but he's the devil incarnate. And one doesn't make deals or fall in love with the devil.
If someone had told Chase he'd fall in love with a certain virgin when he was on his last mission, he would have shot them dead, sniper style. She was nothing more than collateral damage, damn it. But watching the sexy new spy morph into a bombshell killing machine is too much to bear. So when the powers that be command him to train her in the art of seduction for her first--and possibly last--mission, he's scared witless. Making love to Kate means preparing her for sex with another man.
Somehow, Chase has to find a way to get Kate in--and out--of her mission without dying. And without falling in love.
