Erotic Romance: Behind the Steamy Scenes

I have a confession to make…I love writing sex scenes. In third person. In first person? Not so much. I don't know what it is about the change of perspective, but it throws me every time. I end up fighting my inner editor the entire time I should be writing.

Sometimes, it works out well. Other times, it's completely awful.

I'm pretty proud of how I did with the scenes in this series, however. The sex scenes are downright steamy at times.

I give all the credit to Roman. He's scorching hot, especially when he gets all riled up. I love that he can be rough and tender at the same time. I think that combination in an alpha male is so sexy!

Who doesn't love a man who can make you swoon even as he's getting you all hot and bothered?

Roman manages to do both, and then some. I love how effortlessly his sex scenes came together. Trust me, it's not always like that!

Here are a few other truths about writing sex scenes.

  • It never stops being awkward when someone I've known my entire life reads my books. It's even more awkward when they want to discuss them with me. No.

  • People are always surprised by how much I know about sex as a result of writing. I like to know what I'm talking about, so I do actually research certain things.


  • I've bribed my husband into helping with research more than a few times. Sometimes, I need to know if something is actually possible or if it's awkward. Being able to see it in action helps! It's especially helpful when writing about a man as tall as Roman.

  • There are only so many ways you can write about penetration. My editing notes to myself always make me laugh because I'm quick to tell myself to STFU about using certain words again, especially if I'm tired when I'm editing. "Look, lady, you've said thrust 84 times. Change this shit already!"


  • No, I don't watch porn often. Give me erotic romance any day. I find words so much sexier than video. As with above, there are only so many ways you can see penetration. Visually, it's not particularly erotic!

  • That said…one scene in this series may or may not have been inspired partially by porn. I don't even remember the specific of the scene. I just remember watching it and thinking how hot it was to see this man focused completely on his partner's pleasure instead of his own as he made her orgasm over and over. There aren't many pornos out there like that! Seeing it from an observer's standpoint was incredibly erotic.

  • I have some very frank conversations with friends and readers about what words ruin a scene. Core, channel, and passage always top the list for a lot of us, myself included. Moist is a no-go for pretty much everyone. So is the "c" word unless it's used in very, very specific ways (ie: the hero says it specifically because of how filthy it sounds).


  • I learned to write sex scenes with the help of Twitter. Followers would sometimes tweet photos (usually from Tumblr), and I would write a little flash fiction piece inspired by that photo. It really helped!

  • The very first part of this series I wrote was actually this teaser. It so perfectly fit the steamier aspects of Mila and Roman's story.


  • When I interviewed for my current job, we had an entire conversation about Fifty Shades of Grey and erotic romance. One of the two interviewers left for another job the week I was hired, but she's now a member of my Review Team!

  • I can't start writing a sex scene on my computer. I have to start them by hand. I don't know why, but virtually every single sexy scene I've ever written has started on paper.

You can dive into Roman and Mila's steamy scenes in Devour Me and Destroy Me. I hope you enjoy them now that you've had a peek behind the curtain!


Destroy Me
Her Best Friend's Father #2
by Ayden K. Morgen
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Two weeks.
No strings attached.
No messy emotions.

Those were the terms Mila Lawson offered Roman Gregory when they found themselves living together in Santa Cruz. Now that the ATF agent has his daughter's twenty-two year old best friend in his bed every night, he's finding it more and more difficult to deny what he's felt for her since the day they met.

With a drug cartel threatening to go to war and his daughter becoming increasingly suspicious, the last thing Roman should be thinking about is keeping Mila by his side. He's never wanted much, but he wants her…and he's willing to break more than a few of his own rules to convince the feisty little blonde to put her heart in his hands.

For Mila, falling for Roman might just be the most terrifying thing she's ever done. Trusting him with her body is one thing, but with her past still hanging over her, she knows all too well that the scary-hot man who drives her wild has the power to destroy her.

As their time in Santa Cruz draws to a close and the world beyond their little stretch of beach closes in on them, Roman and Mila will be forced to confront the truth about their relationship and make decisions neither could have imagined.

But who ever said falling in love would be easy?
Destroy Me is the second of three steamy novellas featuring Mila and Roman.

**Only 99 cents!!**


Devour Me
Her Best Friend's Father #1

Don't get caught.


Never fall in love.

And steer clear of his daughter's friends.

The rules were easy enough for Roman Gregory...until Mila Lawson set out to break every single one of them.


When the twenty-two year old lands on the ATF agent's doorstep after a nasty breakup, he knows all too well that she's off-limits. At thirty-eight, he's almost twice her age, she's hurting, and the blonde bombshell is his daughter's best friend.

Mila knows all about wanting what she can't have. For four years, she's lusted after Talia McPherson's scary hot, terminally single father from afar. After walking away from her cheating ex and what she thought was her happily-ever-after, the last thing on her mind is jumping into a new relationship.

Until she find herself living with Roman in Santa Cruz...

Now all she can think about is making all those dirty fantasies come to life. With nothing left to lose, she makes him an offer he can't refuse: Two weeks of no-holds-barred sex. No strings. No commitments. No messy emotions.

Roman has no business agreeing to her insane proposition. He can't have her. He shouldn't even want her. But he's going to take her anyway… and he has no intentions of stopping until she's his completely.

If there's one thing Roman knows for a fact, it's that he doesn't lose. Ever.

Devour Me is the first of three steamy novellas featuring Mila and Roman.
