The Language of Love



I have a question. Am I the only erotic author who frequently finds herself/himself at a loss for words when writing intimate scenes. How can this be? I know, I know, go buy a book. :) There are countless manuals and guides provided to find the exact sensual words, and yet... choose the wrong combination and a scene can fizzle like--well--like a limp dick.


Not unlike great sex, writing a passionate encounter is challenging, exciting, and satisfying. When all the parts work together and the final climax comes--either with a great crescendo or a sigh of sweet release--I'm ready for a cigarette and some mellow afterglow. 


I had a lot of mellow moments while writing the first book in my Bounty Hunters series. Meet Charlie Wolf  McCallister and Miss Naomi Parker in a snippet from Wolf's Tender  Available now in both digital and print @ Amazon.
Groin to mound, joined as they were, Naomi's sweet breath feathered across his chin, and he watched her bite her bottom lip. He shifted, settling her tighter, reaching like a spoiled child for a spot deeper inside.Tentatively flexing her inner muscles around his cock, she squeezed. Beads of perspiration dotted her forehead, and moisture flooded her eyes. He leaned forward and kissed the end of a lash, capturing a tear with his tongue. Their heavy breathing joined into one melodic score.
Charlie Wolf brushed his lips down Naomi's cheek and across her mouth, tasting her lightly with his senses. He jerked in surprise when she reciprocated, sipping delicately at his bottom lip. He opened, drawing her tongue into his mouth and then following her shy retreat, back to the warmth of hers.
They groaned in unison. His hand came up, cupping the back of her head, steadying their kiss. It was a first for him too—part of him held onto her as if she was a sacred moment—he was almost scared to proceed. He’d never bedded a virgin. Part of him wanted to fuck her so hard she’d never forget him; he wanted to be more than her first. He hadn’t even pulled from her body and already he wanted to be the only man who ever gave her this pleasure.

Gem, throwing you kisses for that 'limp dick' line... gave me a very raucous chuckle...

Ya know sometimes the right words just flow along with the passionate action... other times, trying to get the right mood down, find the right words to do it... omygawd... tear out a few brain cells, will ya?

Oh, sigh and pant, so loved that excerpt of Charlie and Naomi...

Somethings are just hard to describe, I think. Grin. Happy TT, anyway.
