GUEST POST BY ANN B HARRISON
When I first started writing I was a little bit scared of writing sex. Why you might ask? Truthfully I have no idea. Maybe I was scared I wouldn’t write believable love scenes. Maybe I thought I sucked at it, period. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination. It felt like the first time you made the decision to do anything you hadn’t done before. It can be exciting or terrifying. I was literally shaking in my boots.
I remember getting to the part in my book where they were going to get it on and thinking, “Can I really do this? Why do they have to do it now?” I shut myself in the office and just wrote, no editing, no thinking, just fingers on keys. Then I got up, walked out and made a cup of tea. “I feel like a voyeur,” I said to my husband. Poor guy didn’t get it.
After I calmed down I went back in and read over my words, made a few changes and carried on. The next sex scene got easier and that book ended up with three all up. That was a huge effort for me, not so much my characters. They enjoyed themselves immensely.Nerves took hold once again when I sent it to my editor. I waited for her to shred the scenes to pieces. It never happened. “Hey, great sex,” was her reply. Thank goodness for that. It boosted my confidence to no end. After that, it got easier and easier. Now I’m even brave enough to tag my latest book erotic. I hope you enjoy the sex as much as I did

Nothing is going Lizzie’s way. Her sex life is unsatisfying, her job sucks and she has more debt than she needs thanks to her loser brother. Against her better judgment, she lets her best friend sign her up to be auctioned off at a high-rolling venue called the Club. Agreeing to a weekend of adventurous sex with a stranger is one thing, but being bought by the brothers who own the Club means Lizzie is up for a weekend beyond her wildest fantasies.
Ryan and Lizzie hit it off, in bed and out, but it’s his quiet brother, Trace, that has her heart pounding and her panties in a twist. But is Lizzie what Trace needs? Having been burned before, will he take a chance on what his heart is telling him or trust his instincts and send her home after their weekend is over?
Ann swears she was born with a book in her hands and has never put it down. A lifelong love of reader has finally culminated in achieving her dream of writing...and publication.
She lives in the beautiful Hunter Valley with her own handsome hero of many years. Ann has always loved the ups and downs of life in small communities and she shares this with readers in her rural romances.
Strong sexy heroines with a good dash of sass thrown in feature in her stories. Of course these women need an equally strong hero. Bring on the outback hero and watch the passion ignite.
When not writing Ann enjoys reading, gardening, walking her very large dog Hugo and fighting with her computer.
