We’re gearing up for the Damn, That’s Hot Erotica 4 event on Facebook from January 11th to the 17th with this series of Provocative Interviews with every participating author. In these blog posts you’ll learn about the writers, their naughty offerings, and read their responses to offbeat questions that display their wit, outrageousness, and the sexy imagination that befits a person who deals with the steamier side of Literature.
Come and Join Us — https://www.facebook.com/events/826602524132674/
Today’s Featured Author is Natalie Alder
I write stories about romance. They center on learning about the characters backgrounds, personalities and life circumstances that mold them into who they are and how they love.
I am a sassy 40-something year old. I live in a quiet farming town in New England with my husband of fifteen years and our three rescued cats. After college I facilitated improvement in the physical abilities of children and the elderly then took the opportunity to enjoy my creative side. I love to sew, knit, write…sing and drink martinis (not necessarily at the same time).
THE Q & A
Which one of your fictional characters would you like to do the nasty with?
NA — JP Ryan (The Tapestry Series)! He’s my super sexy cowboy charged with desire and ready to be let out of the gate.
Who’s your most exciting character and who would play them in the movie?
NA — JP Ryan is smokin’ hot and I’d love to see Matt Damon as JP on the big screen.
Which Naughty Historical/Literary Person/Character would you most like to have dinner with?
NA — I’d love to have dinner (and more) with Jace Jamison from Isabel Lucero’s Living in Sin. She describes him as a “God-like creature”, so he’s got to be awesome.
Which are the most interesting characters in a book – Heroes/Heroines or Villains and why?
NA — Depends on my mood/time of the month. I love a nasty villain, especially when the writer really brings you into the character’s mind. But then I can easily get sappy and just can’t wait for the hero to swoop in and be strong, protective and sexy.
Give a shout-out to your most valued Fan, Helper, or Mentor and why?
NA — Sarah Banks is a most valued fan/helper. She gets my characters and can give great feedback when she beta reads. Plus Sarah is just a wonderful person.
What is your favorite ‘Banned’ book and why?
NA — The Great Gatsby is my favorite. All that decadence and flair on such a large scale at a time when it was not acceptable makes me want to have been there even more!
Have you ever incorporated humor into a sex scene and, if not, would you be willing to try it?
NA — No, I haven’t but I’d certain be willing to give it a try. It may not be as easy as it sounds to me. I do incorporate humor in some of my books but a sex scene is not a situation where humor is generally rampant so you’d have to work the scene right for it to be a success.
Where is one place you would never consider having sex at and why?
NA — I couldn’t ever see myself having sex in a subway. They are just normally so filthy. I’d be too worried watching what I touch, lean on…yuck.
On an average day you would most likely be wearing a cotton panties, a thong, or going commando?
NA — Cotton panties but I’m losing weight so soon it will be thongs.
What Tame Literary Classic would you love to turn into a Hot Piece of Erotica?
NA — I’d like for Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher (Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer) to get it on.
CREWEL WORK (TAPESTRY SERIES 1)
The key to a successful horse farm is the trainer. At Bridgeton Pass, J. P. Ryan is that key. William Becker is determined to protect his farm and keep Ryan on the job.
That goal is threatened by two things – a sinister act by another employee and the fact that his only daughter has fallen head-over-heels in love with J. P.
Becker can’t allow either of those things to threaten his legacy.
Audra grew up around the handsome trainer and fell in love with him at a distance, enchanted by his kindness and honesty. When they began stealing private but innocent moments, she found that she didn’t want to live without him. Audra is heartbroken when she has to choose between honoring her father and pursuing love.
J.P. wants Audra by his side, but he finds himself with a hard decision.
He is forced to choose between his career and the love of his life. Between the problem caused by the troublemaking barn hand and the frustration caused by his desire for Audra, J.P.’s job has become a ‘crewel’ work.
The story of the Becker family is woven as an intricate Tapestry. It is beautiful as a whole, but like any tapestry, you have to turn it over and look at the back side to see how the threads of love and family relationships are woven together into one intricate whole.
Welcome to the Tapestry series.
TROUBLE LOOMING (TAPESTRY SERIES 2)
Cole Becker helped his father raise his younger siblings after their mother died. He helped his father take care of his aging parents until they passed away. Now it’s time for Cole to have the life he deserves.
When he meets Sara, all of his dreams seem to finally be within reach…until things begin to fall apart. Their perfect romance soon becomes complicated, scary, even life-threatening. Will happiness ever be theirs? Will Cole and Sara get their ‘someday’ together? Continue Tapestry, the Becker’s family saga in Trouble Looming, sequel to Crewel Work.
WOVEN INTERESTS (TAPESTRY SERIES 3)
Uptight, serious, introvert…those were the words most used to describe James.
The middle brother in the Becker family, owners of a prestigious race horse farm in South Carolina, though austere was covertly a playboy.
Unable to resist a beautiful body, whether male or female, James never had a desire to commit to just one. A consummate player, he had no interest in a relationship.
Never say never. A broken ankle was the catalyst that led James to consider a relationship. Falling for a man already in a committed relationship with a woman was intricate enough. But the likelihood of their woven interests in each other becoming a real relationship was threatened by shallow judgment, the media and a troublemaking former barn hand.
A tender new relationship…an artist and a construction worker. They are a work-in-progress with potential to be a portrait of happiness. But her desire for him as the subject in her next painting may taint their chances…
