Guests Angelica Hart and Zi and a Surprise!!

I am happy to have writing team Angelica Hart and Zi stop by to talk about sex and their latest release, Killer Dolls.





SPICY HOT VANILLA

In all romances there is that moment when sex finds fruition, that instant when all the tug and pull, the laboring through emotional upheaval and external complications finally finds its way to culmination. It does happen. Sometimes the reader has to wait until nearly the end of the story, but then there it is, the reward, the prize in the cracker jack box called a romance novel. We cannot and will never trivialize that. The challenge for the writer is to make the reader want to be a page turner voyeur. This has to be accomplished by getting one to root for the story's couple to share lovemaking, but also for the reader to want, crave, and desire the outcome as much as the hero and heroine, to have a stake in their lives, and at times to relate to the situation in that they nearly meld with one of the characters, experiencing all there is to experience. But as important as is that, it is also crucial to make that scene interesting. The same old same old must never feel as if so. The act in of itself would be simple and maybe boring if not dressed in all the luxurious trappings a writer's imagination can provide. We want to put the fiery desire into those moments. We owe it to characters and the readers. So how?

"Would you like to
With Elinor Glyn
On a tiger skin?
Or would you prefer
To err with her
On some other fur?"
- (author unknown)

The afore poem was written about Elinor Glyn a 20s writer of torrid love stories. My Grams watched the soaps and she call them her stories. "Got to get done so I can watch my stories," she'd say, or "Run out and play during my stories." She'd grab a cup of coffee and a snack and sit in the big chair, losing herself to the scenes unfolding in a way that made her part of the characters' world. She loved the edgy.

We are lead to believe that Glyn found a certain amount of sensuality having the feel of fur on her skin. We are in a time where toys and kink are becoming more and more commonplace, and the usage of them is no longer a hidden secret. There are even fetish parties that play out just like a Tupperware party used to be demonstrated with a group of ladies in someone's home. We most certainly believe that traditional love making holds a profound import not just because of the grandness of all sensations but those sensations begin in the largest sex organ the brain. But there is much to be said that spicing up the act can be good. Perception of what is exciting varies from person to person and catching segments of that perception is what stirs readers, encouraging them to devour the scenes.

We as a society get our paraphilias, our sexual arousal, from a variety of sources. Glyn in the 20s was not vanilla but she is very much so in this day and age. We live in a world of adventurous lovers.

Our role if we use such fetishes is to give them value within the relating, because at the end of the day when you tally up the score, it is not the color of the condom on the talliwacker, or whether they score, but truly the honest exchange of emotions that facilitate meaningful physical expression. All the other paraphernalia and erotic action is just fun.

Our proclivity is spicy hot vanilla. That is apparent in KILLER DOLLS and stretched toward rare uniqueness in SNAKE DANCE.

What would you like in love scenes found in your favorite genre?


KILLER DOLLS IS AVAILABLE: Unaware that bio-terrorists are using her handcrafted dolls to attack the innocent, Letti Noel finds herself falling for Taut Johnson, an undercover FBI agent. Even as deceit is a growing barrier to their love, it's the stalking terrorists that are a threat to their lives.

We love to hear from anyone interested in what we do. Anyone who writes us at angelicahartandzi@yahoo.com and leaves an s-mail address, we will send you a gift and add you to any future mailings.

Give me more tender moments. I like the sensuality but I want to see more sentimentality. Cool blog.

Hannah said...

I usually read sweet romance but I liked Killer Dolls. It lives up to the idea of spicy hot vanilla. Can't wait to see what you've done with Snake Dance.

Hi Angelica and Zi!
What a wonderful explanation! I definitely like the tug and pull sensulaity with a "nice" (not graphic) culmination!! Spicy and steamy work for me - I just prefer no erotica! =)

Candace Morehouse said...

Sometimes the most erotic scenes are those left up to the imagination. For me the "foreplay" is the most sensual; all the little things, the gestures, the emotions, the interaction - that lead up to the final culmination. When I used to read romance books as a youngster, I never liked the story as much after the h/h had sex - it was what occurred before that I liked reading the best.
Great topic!

Hi Angelica & Zi,

Great post, guys. I loved Killer Dolls and can say you certainly built the sexual tension to the boiling point. Looking forward to Snake Dance.

Mary, thank you for your wonderful thoughts. We feel that tenderness between a man and a woman can often stir sensuality in a way that an overt sexual act never could. Of course, it could easily draw someone into something blatantly stimulating, and the journey could be quite enjoyable. Such as… A fingertip glided over the bow of her lips, lips that had been ignored for so long, lips that now parted in anticipation yet he did nothing more, actually seemed about to pull away, to abandon the ache and need he deliberately elicited. In opposition to his gentleness, her sudden, overt heated kiss yanked them both away from sentiment and into the rawness of sensuality… The rest is up to your imagination.

Hi Hannah, we're tickled that you read KILLER DOLLS. Our characters Taut and Letti exhibited that wonderful mixture of sweet sensuality with pure sexual intensity. So, just as if tweaking the recipe of a favorite desert, we needed to ravaged the sensual spice rack and add a dash of sensuality, a liberal sprinkling of passion, a measure of wantonness, a quantity of steamy and double-dose of love. If you enjoyed it, then hopefully you’ll like the peppering of exotic we added to SNAKE DANCE.

Angelica Hart and Zi said...

Great to see you, Martha. We always adore your comments, and appreciate your stopping by. Luisa Sigea once said, "Blaze with the fire that is never extinguished." To us that is the foundation of romance, the endless smoldering of love's embers. They can't be extinguished, they can't be ignored, they can't be dissuaded, they can only be stirred into an inferno, and oft times that inferno is that of emotions underpinning the physical expression.

Angelica Hart and Zi said...

Hey Candace, you have identified the core of the romance novel. It’s all about the journey, that winding path full of detours, road blocks, endless construction, and delays. Once you reach the destination, the trip is over. Hmmm, strange analogy on our part but we think it apt. We appreciate your input and looking forward to your upcoming October 2009 release FULL THROTTLE. Your stories often take us on that wonderful ride of sexual tension. We’re all ready to buckle up and git on the road!

Angelica Hart and Zi said...

Linda, we are thrilled that you read KILLER DOLLS and that you've taken the time to stop by. Georg Wilhelm said, "Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion." Though his thoughts probably weren't aimed at the romance genre, it is the nucleus. The explicit or non-explicit nature of the love scenes doesn’t matter as much as the loving passion building within the soul and heart of the hero and heroine. We find that captivating truth so evident in WHEN THE OCOTILLO BLOOM one of your current releases. We always look forward to your comments, and every one of your new books.

Fabulous to see you, Val. Doing the V A L cheer! Yes... tenderness is the lure, the bait, the pull you down under until you don't even care if you're breathing. There is a CD titled Time, Love and Tenderness. Isn't that what a lot of us crave? Give us a bit of time, a lot of love, and an endless supply of tenderness. Z: There she goes getting sentimental, again. A: Talk about the pot calling the kettle steamy. You're the one who writes the sentimental scenes. Z: (Pretends not to hear) Hope life is treating you grand, Val, and that we connect again soon.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
