Hi Laurel, in reading your blurb I see that there's a touch of BDSM there. When writing that into a storyline how do you add and/or keep the romance with the erotica, it seem that you may have achieved that balance.sweetpea122 at rocketmail dot com
Hi Sweatpea nd thanks for commenting! I try to achieve balance by remembering that people who enjoy BDSM are just like everyone else, they just enjoy a little (or a lot more) spice in the bedroom. I'm also not a big fan of "instalove". If I don't feel my characters have established enough of a connection, then I don't finish the story with a happily ever after (HEA), because I just don't think that's a believable scenario. In those cases I end the story with a happy for now(HFN). However, for those stories where my goal is an HEA, I make sure to establish not only a physical and emotional connection between my characters, but also a history so that an HEA is both a believable and satisfying ending for readers. Either way, I think BDSM can be written without forsaking emotion and heart for heat.
