Should Heroes Use Endearments?

By Cynthia Sax on August 22, 2014

There was a discussion on a reader loop a couple of weeks ago about whether or not heroes should use endearments for their heroines. Some readers love this. Some readers don’t.

For me, this choice is as individual as the heroes I’m writing about. Nicolas, one of the heroes in Sinful Rewards, doesn’t use endearments, at least not quickly and not in public. He’s a private man. He doesn’t talk much. He’s aware that not everyone wishes him well. He wouldn’t expose his feelings and his heroine’s safety by using an endearment.

Hawke, on the other hand, calls Bee ‘love’ and ‘sweetheart’ during their very first conversation. He continues to sprinkle their subsequent discussions with these endearments, as illustrated in this snippet.

***

“Expect more offers. I can be a persistent pain in the ass, especially when it comes to pretty little women with long brown hair and big brown eyes.” One corner of Hawke’s lips lifts upward, giving me a glimpse of white teeth. “And love?”

“Yeah?” I pause, wondering why I’m answering to this endearment. I’m not anyone’s love—not his, not Nicolas’s—not yet.

***

Bee doesn’t find Hawke’s endearments…well…endearing. It drives her crazy that he treats the word ‘love’ so casually, that he’d call a stranger this. His pet names for her cause more conflict than affection. She feels that it’s almost as though he’s mocking her most cherished dream – to be someone’s love.

I personally love it when men, both in romance novels and in real life, use endearments for their loved ones. I get a thrill when my dear wonderful hubby is out with the guys, I phone him, and he calls me ‘love’ in front of his buddies. It not only is a declaration of his feelings but it also tells the world how confident he is. It is very much an alpha male move. My real life hero cares more about what his heroine thinks than what his buddies think.

What is your stance on endearments? Do you love them or would you rather your heroes not use them?

Interview with Jennifer Kacey

By Cynthia Sax on August 21, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Jennifer Kacey for a short interview. Jennifer Kacey’s latest release is Beneath the Pages, her contribution to the Brought to His Knees boxed set.


Cynthia Sax: What is your favorite line from Beneath the Pages?

Jennifer Kacey: The last line. “He growled in her ear as the guys moved toward her. “Good girl.” Just that handful of words says it all. His dominance, what she’s been aching to hear, what’s about to happen. It’s so delicious and wicked and I literally get goose bumps every time I read it. All the way up to the top of my head. I kid you not. And I have to read it out loud too. In a whisper. SO YUMMY!

Cynthia Sax: Does a character in Beneath the Pages have a secret?

Jennifer Kacey: YES!!! Radigan, my hero, he’s a Dom. As in a Dom with a capital HELLO SEXY MAN! But he’s also a famous actor. He can’t reveal who he really is underneath the glitz and stardom. But to Acacia, he can’t hold back. But who is she? None other than the heiress to a magazine where she makes a living convincing the rich and famous to reveal it all. Oy vay!


Cynthia Sax: Is Beneath the Pages a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?

Jennifer Kacey: Originally no. It was going to be stand-alone and that’s it, BUT from the people who read the ARC I’ve been…uhh…threatened with bodily harm if I don’t write a companion novella at the very least and pick it up EXACTLY where I left off Beneath the Pages.


Cynthia Sax: What do you love about writing contemporary romance?


Jennifer Kacey:
I can make everything perfect. How people fight, what they say, things I WISH I’d said in a similar situation. OMG and that I write in people I’m not fond of and change the names of the guilty (cause you know they are) and have all sorts of dastardly things happen to them. Or I at least get to call them an asshole publicly even if no one knows about it but me. SO CATHARTIC!!!

Thank you, Jennifer Kacey, for joining us today!

Interview With Margaret L. Carter

By Cynthia Sax on August 20, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Margaret L. Carter for a short interview. Margaret L. Carter’s latest release is Sealing the Dark Portal, an intriguing Paranormal Romance.


Cynthia Sax: What makes Cam so freakin’ sexy?

Margaret L. Carter: Cam is a cat shapeshifter. He has three forms: Human; a tawny, longhaired domestic cat; and a large feline the size and roughly the appearance of a mountain lion. To me, shapeshifters have a numinous allure, and there’s no animal more graceful and sensuous than a cat.

Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Sealing the Dark Portal?

Margaret L. Carter: The original spark came from the conclusion of Stephen King’s Dark Tower saga. Near the end of the final book (spoiler), a pair of lovers who’ve been through hellish ordeals together with the hero, Roland, find themselves together in New York. The man doesn’t remember his former life in Roland’s world, and it’s implied the woman will quickly forget, too. They will have a happy life together, free of the horrible memories of the past. Suppose, I wondered, something happened to disrupt that new life? So I created a heroine in that situation; the hero, however, has a complete memory of their past together in the world they came from. Of course, the trope of magically imposed false memories has been used by many fantasy authors, but it’s that scene from THE DARK TOWER that inspired me in this particular case. I gave the terrors that haunt my characters Lovecraftian elements because I’ve had a lifelong fondness for Lovecraft-style horror (although I don’t at all share his bleak philosophy of a mindless, uncaring universe).


Cynthia Sax: Does a character in Sealing the Dark Portal have a secret?

Margaret L. Carter: Definitely! The heroine, Rina, even has a secret from herself. She was sent from her home world to ours with her authentic memories wiped and overwritten by the constructed memory of living an ordinary life in Maryland. The hero, Cam, secretly watches over her from the shadows until he’s forced to reveal himself as her bodyguard and try to awaken her true self.


Cynthia Sax: What do you love about writing paranormal romance?


Margaret L. Carter:
Although I started as an aspiring horror writer (at age 13), I soon realized that what really interested me was getting inside the mind of the “monster.” The first time I read DRACULA, I wondered how the Count felt about those events in which he was portrayed as the villain. (Fred Saberhagen answers that question in THE DRACULA TAPE, the story I always wanted to write.) One of my first attempts at fiction was a love story between a living man and a ghost. I wrote lots of vampire viewpoint fiction, with vampires as sympathetic characters. Relationships between the human and the nonhuman fascinated me. When paranormal romance became a recognized subgenre, I knew it was the niche I’d been waiting for.

Thank you, Margaret L. Carter, for joining us today!

You had me at catshifter and then again at Stephen King. (grins)

Margaret L. Carter’s Website: http://www.margaretlcarter.com

*****************************************************************************

Almost nothing Rina remembers about her life is true. Rather than an ordinary librarian, she is a sorceress who fled from another world to ours when creatures from an alien dimension devastated her home and killed her family. Now they have pursued her to our world, summoned by a sorcerer who plans to open a portal and invite monstrous entities from the void between dimensions to overrun this planet. Rina’s former bodyguard, a cat shapeshifter who was once her lover and still yearns for her, helps her true memories to awaken. She must come to terms with the truth about her past so that together they can save their new home from the fate of their old one.

Bee And Cyndi – A Heroine’s Best Friend

By Cynthia Sax on August 20, 2014

I judge people by the friends they have. I think we all do. When I discover that a new acquaintance is a friend of a friend, I’m predisposed to like her. We already have one thing in common – the same great taste in friends.

I judge characters by the friends they have also. If the heroine has no friends, I wonder why. What’s wrong with her? Does she have the skills to build a lasting romantic relationship? If the heroine has a nasty best friend, I wonder why she chooses this person to hang out with. Does she have terrible judgment? Does this terrible judgment extend to her choice of hero?

Bee’s best friend, Cyndi, isn’t perfect. She’s a slut and quite proud about this. She likes everyone, even the not-so-nice people (like Angel – eye roll). But she’s fun and generous and she doesn’t judge Bee.

Cyndi is wealthy and gives Bee some access to that world, a world she desperately wants to belong to. She can afford the fashions Bee loves and, in the past, she’d take Bee on shopping trips, consulting our insecure heroine before she made purchases.

Cyndi needs Bee in other ways. Her dad feels Bee is a good influence on her. Cyndi doesn’t like to sleep alone. When she’s not hooking up with her man of the moment, she sleeps in Bee’s bedroom.

Bee needs to be needed. She likes that Cyndi is messy because her cleaning skills are needed. Cyndi can’t cook, giving Bee another way to contribute to their household. Bee isn’t an equal but she’s not a pity figure either.

Their friendship seems to work for both of them. BUT and this is a big but, it hasn’t yet been tested. Bee worries that when times get tough, Cyndi will abandon her…as her friends have abandoned her in the past.

Have any of your friendships been tested? How?

Interview With Tina Donahue

By Cynthia Sax on August 19, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Tina Donahue for a short interview. Tina Donahue’s latest release is Make Me Surrender, her steamy contribution to the Brought to His Knees boxed set.


Cynthia Sax: What makes Travis and Dutch sexy?

Tina Donahue: All of the books in Brought to His Knees are about Alpha males brought down by love. Personally, I can’t think of anything more delicious than a commanding guy who meets his match in a woman he can’t live without.

In Make Me Surrender, Travis and Dutch aren’t looking for love or any kind of commitment. Sweet Mercy waltzes into their lives and they don’t know what hit them. It’s awesome.

Cynthia Sax: What is your favorite line from Make Me Surrender?

Tina Donahue: At the very beginning when Mercy says to Dutch and Travis, “I have a proposition.”

Like I said before, Travis and Dutch won’t know what hit them. They’ve known Mercy for a year and paid little attention to her, considering her more of a friend or a little sister type. Mercy has other plans. She’s wanted these tough guys from the beginning and is determined to make them notice and want her.


Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Make Me Surrender?

Tina Donahue: It just came to me like all my other stories. I can be grocery shopping, driving, having lunch with friends and suddenly I see scenes in my head and the characters interacting. Basically, I write down what I see and the story progresses from there.


Cynthia Sax: How does Make Me Surrender start?


Tina Donahue:
The story begins with Travis and Dutch coming into Fast Fill, one of those gas/groceries stores everyone’s familiar with. Mercy works there. She knows there’s an opening in Travis’s saloon and considers it her best chance to work with and be near him and Dutch. Make Me Surrender gets right to the core of Mercy’s greatest desire. She wants these guys badly and is determined to make them notice her once and for all.

Is Lasting Love A Slow Burn Or A Passion Inferno?

By Cynthia Sax on August 18, 2014

Lasting love – is it a slow burn or a passion inferno?

http://ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.ca/2014/08/guest-post-with-author-cynthia-sax-and.html

Here’s a snippet…

Sinful Rewards, my sizzling contemporary erotic romance serial, features a hot, hot, HOT love triangle. Bee, a vertically challenged exhibitionist, is torn between Nicolas, a billionaire with a dark secret, and Hawke, a tattooed bad boy biker.

Bee is also torn between two types of love—a slow steady burn or a passion inferno. She has been watching Nicolas, her billionaire, for a while. She admires his work ethic, thinks he’s incredibly handsome, likes that he builds homes for people, sees the loneliness in his eyes and she knows she can make him happy.

Interview With Sayara St. Clair

By Cynthia Sax on August 18, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Sayara St. Clair for a short interview. Sayara St. Clair’s latest release is Hurt Me, Heal Me, a Contemporary erotic romance with BDSM.


Cynthia Sax: What makes Paul, your hero, so freakin’ sexy?

Sayara St. Clair: God, where do I start? Let’s see…

Okay I’m going to be shallow and start with Paul’s looks. He’s tall, built and rugged.

He has:

a) Shoulder length hair you can tangle your fingers in.

b) Electric blue eyes you can get lost in.

c) Iliac furrows you just want to lick for a day.

As a landscape designer running his own business, he’s clever and creative. He also gets outside and works hard with his crew (I’m imagining he does this without a shirt on). And now I’ve totally lost the plot. Ummm…yes… What I’m trying to say is that being clever, creative and good with his hands also translates to other areas of his life.

Paul is a Dom and in addition to being all stern and commanding, he can be caring and loving and he also has a great sense of humor. He loves to play—in every sense of the word.

He’s very skilled in the art of Shibari. He loves tying his woman up in intricate bondage and teasing her to within an inch of her life.

And last but not least, he has a southern accent and a deep, gravelly voice with which to speak it.

So to sum up; big, strong, handsome, stern, smart, funny, caring, loving, rough-round-the –edges, deep-talking, rope-toting Texan Dom.

Yeah baby!

Cynthia Sax: What is your favorite line from Hurt Me, Heal Me?

Sayara St. Clair: “Come on, Snowy,” he growled in a deep voice. “It’s high time I got some body fluids all over you.”

Firstly I have to point out that my heroine’s name is actually Caitlin, not Snowy. But I love this particular line because it’s said in a scene where Paul and Caitlin are involved in a bit of playful verbal sparring. In the scene, they’re just learning about each other’s sense of humor. I like to think of it as “stroking each other’s funny bones.” I also like it because Caitlin (who’s had quite a difficult past) is finally coming out of herself and seeing that it’s perfectly okay to tease your Dom a little.


Cynthia Sax: What creates conflict between Caitlin and Paul?

Sayara St. Clair: The main conflict stems from the fact that Caitlin has been trained by a sadistic Master to orgasm only while experiencing extreme pain. She longs for things she’s never experienced with a lover, things like love, tenderness and care. Paul can give her everything she’s always longed for, however it’s impossible for him to hurt her the way that she needs.

It’s devastating for Caitlin to think of turning away from what she’s ached for all her life. And from Paul’s perspective, as a Dom who wants to give his woman everything she needs, it just tears him apart.


Cynthia Sax: Is Hurt Me, Heal Me part of a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?


Sayara St. Clair:
Yes. Hurt Me, Heal Me is part of the Dante’s Purgatory series. It’s the first book in the series and I’m currently working on book number two. Well, I work on book two in the moments when the impatient characters from book three pipe down and give me a chance!

The element that ties all the books together, is the BDSM club called Dante’s Purgatory. And the next book will be the story of the club owner, the Italian Stallion, Dante Caffarelli.

Thank you, Sayara St. Clair, for joining us today!

Sayara St. Clair’s Website: http://www.sayarastclair.com

*****************************************************************************


Dante’s Purgatory, Book One

After the death of her Master, Caitlin Bennett discovers years of sadistic cruelty at his hands have made her a slave to pain. To orgasm, Caitlin needs the type of extreme agony few responsible Doms are willing to inflict, especially Doms like Paul Nelson. Offering nearly everything she craves, Paul’s perfect—except for his aversion to the whip.

Paul refuses to hurt Caitlin, instead attempting to retrain her with patience and trust. But the longer she suffers from a lack of release, the more she’s convinced her mind and body are irrevocably conditioned. And Paul has precious little time to convince her otherwise. Waiting in the wings is a newbie Dom determined to have Caitlin for his own…who’s learning the whip just for her.

She’ll soon have to choose—the man who can give her what she wants? Or the man who can give her what she needs?

Inside Scoop: Caitlin recalls scenes of abuse that could disturb the more tenderhearted.

Favorite Quotations From Sinful Rewards 2

By Cynthia Sax on August 18, 2014

Reading buddies have been sharing their favorite sentences and scenes from Sinful Rewards 2 with me so I thought I’d share some of my favorites also.

***

They’ll treat me like a damn lady, like a woman worthy of being loved.

***

I love this line because it illustrates Bee’s internal conflict. She wants to be worthy of love and she thinks the only way to do this is to become a ‘good girl.’ The issue is… at her core, she’s not what society would call a lady. She cusses. She is an exhibitionist. She wants, needs, craves.

***


“No, I don’t have a helmet.” Hawke’s smile fades, his blue-jean eyes growing serious. “But you’re safe in my hands, Belinda. I’ll be careful with you.”

***

This is yet another indication of Hawke’s true nature—he protects. He might be a tough former Marine but he would never be rough with Bee. He’d never hurt her, at least not physically, and never deliberately.

***

“Don’t give up on us, Bee.” Nicolas’s voice is soft.

***

Nicolas doesn’t say much. He’s a quiet, careful man. But when he speaks—wowsers, he reveals more and more layers. In this scene, our billionaire swallows his pride and asks for another chance. He also hints that someone in his past has given up on him, on her/his relationship with him. He’s been abandoned as Bee has been discarded.

What were your favorite lines from Sinful Rewards 2?
