For me, part of the appeal of writing stories for The Edge is that I get to take one scene and really push the characters to their limit sexually. As they are forced out of their comfort zone, it is fun to see what happens to them and how it ultimately leads at the end of the scene to a real emotional connection between the two characters.
In Bar Mate, Nancy convinces Scott to have sex with her on the dance floor of the bar. Now, granted, there is no one in the bar at the time but the potential is still there for someone to arrive and see them. For the repressed Scott, this roll around on the floor with the wolf-shifter Nancy is a pretty big deal. It pushes him to his Edge.
This made me start to think about myself. What are the things that would really be my edge or even past it? Hmmm. Well, public sex is definitely one of them. As an author, I get to live those scenes with my characters. Because in real life I am actually pretty shy. When walking down the street people have no idea that when I get home to my computer, I walk the edge writing erotic romance.
If you haven’t checked out Shifters and Bikers, I hope you will. Comment and let me know what your edge would be. One person will get a copy of one of my Decadent Publishing backlist books.
