Starchy-old-prude sex between two very, very nasty individuals?  Sounds like you got a case of cognitive dissonance brewing . . .

LoL Luctari

It's always interesting to see how your characters' sexuality comes in play when you least expect it. My readers have described my book as "sexy" which baffled me (5 total pages of sex in 350 does not erotica make), but they all mentioned something along the lines of Aiala's post. Apparently, there's way more sex in my novel than I wrote. Granted, I also like reading the nonsexual scenes that are highly charged with chemistry, but they're very difficult to recognize while you're writing them. Maybe that's a good thing? Means we're not trying too hard to achieve that?

Now I really want to read Aiala's ms someday...

Mr. Luctari, you have NO idea!   :rof2:

Raven, you'll be able to read it in the not-too-distant future, as I'm self-publishing. Meantime, I posted the opening scene of Chapter One over in First Five Pages.   :)
