Today’s Featured Writer is Julie Shelton !!!
Julie Shelton was born in Connecticut, and has lived in seventeen places in eight different states. Her first masterpiece was a play titled “Fairies In The Garden”, a work that included music, ballet, magic wands and, of course, fairies. She and her sister acted it out in the dining room for their doting parents. She was six. And she’s been writing ever since, including “Kidstuff”, a monthly language arts newsletter for early childhood educators that won the prestigious 1982 EDPRESS Award, and “Puppets, Poems and Songs” a 288-page storytelling and puppetry resource for preschool and early elementary teachers.
Now she writes erotic romances with elements of BDSM and lots of scorching hot sex. Not a single fairy or magic wand in sight.
THE Q & A
Which one of your fictional characters would you like to do the nasty with?
My first hero and still my favorite, Jesse Colter. He is the star of Loving Sarah, Owning Sarah, and Keeping Sarah and he has made appearances in all four of my Doms of Passion Lake books as well. No matter how many other hunky, sexy heroes I’ve come up with in the meantime, I just can’t seem to let him go.
What was your first Erotica book and what was the toughest thing about writing it?
Loving Sarah was my first erotica book and the toughest thing about writing it was ending it! In fact, the story grew so long, I had to cut at least a third of it out, otherwise it would have wound up over 800 pages long and the paperback would have weighed 79 pounds! So I took the third I cut out and expanded it into Owning Sarah. Never let good writing go to waste. It can always be recycled as something else.
Who’s your most exciting character and who would play them in the movie?
Again, Jesse Colter. When I first conceived of him, I would have had Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson play him because of his gorgeous ethnic appearance. (Jesse’s part Native American). But now I think Jason Momoa would be the perfect Jesse Colter.
A Great Erotica Novel Must Have what Three Things?
The same three things any great novel must have, erotic or not. Fully developed, well rounded characters, a logical plot, and conflict/tension. Hot sex is at least fourth on the list.
Which are the most interesting characters in a book – Heroes/Heroines or Villains and why?
To me, the heroes are the most interesting, especially if they are Doms. And that’s probably because I am neither a man nor a Dom, so writing from their POV is a challenge, to say the least. But that probably explains why my heroes are so loving and romantic. And not afraid to show it. Because I’M loving and romantic.
Who’s Your Favorite Porn Star and Why?
Marc Davis at kink.com, and I cannot possibly tell you why. He’s older and he’s out of shape, and looks absolutely nothing like any hero I would write about or want to read about. But for some strange reason, he just does it for me.
What is the least favorite word you’ve seen in Erotica and why?
The use of the phrase “Oh, fudge,” instead of the more obvious choice. It’s bad enough when a female character says it, but when a man says it, it just sounds completely dorky. And book heroes should not be dorky.
What couple gets your vote for having the sexiest love scene in a movie and why?
Madeleine Stowe and Daniel Day Lewis as Cora Munro and Nathaniel (Hawkeye) in Last of the Mohicans. It’s only a kiss, but it is without question the longest, sweetest, most erotic, most romantic, and most arousing screen kiss in the history of screen kisses. It is sheer perfection.
Where is one place you would never consider having sex at and why?
A sandy beach. For the obvious reason.
On an average day you would most likely be wearing cotton panties, a thong, or going commando?
Cotton panties. I am, after all, 73, and my sole focus in life these days is comfort, comfort, comfort.
PASSION’S FURY (DOMS/PASSION LAKE 2)
When Simon Rafferty finds Kylie Ferrell sleeping in her broken-down car by the side of the road near Passion Lake, Virginia, the connection between them is instantaneous and combustible. He recognizes her as the woman he and his two brothers have been searching for all their lives. Their lifetime submissive. And the fact that she’s homeless, injured, and targeted by the mob? Minor details.
Identical triplets and former spec ops soldiers, Caleb, Simon, and Ash Rafferty are more than capable of handling anything life throws at them. Including a sweet, sexy, lusciously curvy woman who has sworn off all men and who is clueless about the darkness of their needs and desires. Clueless…but intrigued. These dominant alpha males will do whatever it takes to get her into their bed, their hearts, their lives…and their dungeon.
But Kylie has secrets that put them all in deadly danger. And when that danger catches up with her, Caleb, Simon, and Ash must launch a desperate search to find her before she is ripped from them forever.
PASSION’S HOPE (DOMS/PASSION LAKE 3)
On the run from an abusive Dom, Charlotte Fielding has sworn off men and the BDSM lifestyle. She’s only attending this particular Open House for the free food. But when her abuser, who also happens to be at the club, confronts her, former SEALs Nikolai Rostov and Jay Gillespie come to her rescue and offer to help. But that would require her to trust the two hunkiest Doms she’s ever met. And Charlotte’s all out of trust.
But fate has brought these three people together—Nik, the big Russian Daddy Dom, Jay, the switch, and Charlie, the submissive who needs what both of these men have to offer. Just as they need what she has to offer. Can she learn to trust them? Can she risk her heart? And when danger comes for her will she stay and let Nik and Jay risk their lives to keep her safe? Or will she run—and risk destroying the only happiness she’s ever known?
Passion’s Hope is the third book in the exciting new BDSM series, The Doms of Passion Lake. Be sure to read Passion’s Dream and Passion’s Fury, Books One and Two. And be on the lookout for more by this talented writer.
It’s been a month since Sarah Marshall was kidnapped and held at knifepoint by her ex-fiance. But Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair, her two loving Doms, know that there is an even deadlier threat still out there–Ryder Malone. He blames both Sarah and Jesse for sending him to prison eight years ago for attempted rape, and he’s determined to make them pay. So, he begins a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation against them. But the danger he poses doesn’t end there. Set against the deepening love and commitment between Sarah, Jesse, and Adam, Owning Sarah is more than just a sexy, sensual, BDSM love story. It is a harrowing race against time for Jesse, Adam, and a team of former SEALs to stop one of the biggest arms-for-drugs deals in US history. And to rescue Sarah before Malone sells her to a human trafficker and she’s lost to her men forever. Note: This book contains topping by the heroine.
When Nicholas Herron the Duke of Berwick and his best friend, Rolf Torgesson, two of King Edward III’s most powerful and respected knights, discover a badly beaten young woman hiding in the forest, they swear to protect her. By the time they learn that she is Lady Kathryn Weston, and that her attacker is none other than her betrothed, Robert Walford, the powerful and ruthless Duke of Pemberton, it is too late. They have both fallen in love with her and she with them–a love so forbidden it could cost them everything, even their lives. Set amidst the turmoil and pageantry of 14th-century England, Dark Warrior weaves a vivid tapestry of three lost souls bound to each other with a deep, abiding love. But will that love survive Walford’s evil plan to attack Berwick Castle, take it apart stone by stone, and ultimately destroy everyone who lives there?
