Erotic Historical Romance Monday

Raine Miller: Erotic Historical Romance Feature

Please welcome Raine Miller today, who is talking about book covers. She has some pretty cool stuff for show and tell, too!

Let’s talk historical book covers.  The jewel-toned gown slipping off the shoulders, the headless chest of a hottie in breeches standing in front of a manor house. Sound familiar? Probably too familiar if I am honest, and while they can be beautiful I realized that style wasn’t for me. It just wasn’t the look I wanted for my books.… [Read more...]

Hilde McQueen: Erotic Historical Romance Feature

I met Hilde McQueen when we were on panels together at Authors After Dark in North Carolina this summer. She’s a lovely person and she writes Scots! So…. welcome Hilde!

Lady Scot SmlUndressing a Highlander

The same reason you read sensual historicals is why I write them. I love the idea of a dashing handsome hero who spirits us away to not only a faraway land, but to a different time. A different world. His world.

In my case the heroes are either Medieval Highlanders or Cowboys in the 1800s Wild West.… [Read more...]

Janet Mullany: Erotic Historical Romance Feature

What Jane Austen taught me about erotic writing

Thanks so much for inviting me to guest blog, Jess. I’m thrilled to be here and have this opportunity to talk about a writer who’s influenced us all.

Tomorrow, December 16, is Jane Austen’s birthday. She was born in 1775 in Steventon, Hants., the youngest of a gentry family of bright overachievers, and died in 1817, leaving a legacy of six published novels, plus some fragments and letters.… [Read more...]

As of 2013, it is estimated that one in five females and one in 71 males are raped in their lifetimes in the United States. That’s more than 23.6 million survivors. Today, around the world, women are subjected to horrendous acts of violence, subjugation, and oppression. The more we attention we bring to hate crimes against women and condemn those heinous acts we are working to change the world and its mindset on violence against women.… [Read more...]

First of all, I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Jess for having me here! I’m honored to drop by her blog today. 

As you may have guessed by my presence, I write erotic historical romance. While I’ve written all kinds of characters and time periods—from 18th century swashbucklers to Regency rakes—many of my books take place in late Victorian England, specifically the 1870s and 1880s. [Read more...]

A Visit from Mike Michaels: Husband/Assistant Extraordinaire

Normally this would be an Erotic Historical Romance feature but unfortunately my author for today couldn’t make it. When I cried, my awesome husband and assistant, Michael (who is not Mike Michaels, we just think it’s hilarious), made a very nice offer to write a blog for me while I was out of town at my conference and even get it all set up so it would just publish today. I have no idea what he’s going to say. [Read more...]

Amy Sandas: Erotic Historical Romance Feature

This week’s featured author is Amy Sandas, one of my fellow Samhain erotic historical authors. She’s talking about something I always battle with, what is the difference between a hot historical and an erotic one. Let’s see her answer:

What’s the Difference?

Hi everyone. I am excited to be here today. I write sexy Historical Romance set in Regency England featuring bold men and daring women. When Jess invited me to blog on her site, she suggested I discuss the difference between Erotic Historical Romance and Historical Romance that is hot and steamy, but not erotic.… [Read more...]

Not many people would see this:

samanthakane1
