Now for my story. First of all, I want to put the record straight (no pun intended). I write M/f romance. However, I also support gay rights and marriage equality, so I often have gay characters in my books, especially those with plots that revolve around the theater. I do realize that's a bit of a stereotype, but it's also true to life. The following excerpt is from Part One of Fatal Desire, my vampire romance sequel to Mortal Illusions. It's a pivotal scene that I'd classify as a spoiler. I'm not sure this book will ever be published, since it's sitting on the back burner in a different state right now, so I decided to post this scene because it's in keeping with this year's Love Spanks F/F theme. I also removed a lot of the history from the excerpt in order to make the Love Spanks word count, but the characters and their motivations all remain the same. That said, if you like vampire romances and think you might like to read the book one day, I'll give you a question you can answer without reading this excerpt. Setup: A group of strangers are locked away in an English Castle for a "haunted weekend" and one of the guests has been found dead in her room under very suspicious circumstances. My SPOILER excerpt follows between the red dividers.

To enter, just leave a comment here telling me what sort of romance you enjoy and why. Doesn't have to be complicated, just write in your comment saying whether you enjoy hot steamy historical romances because they get your juices flowing, or sweet, romantic contemporaries because they make your heart lighter. In as many words as you want, tell me what your favorite type of love story is and why. Don't worry. I won't tell anyone you secretly enjoy purple alien BDSM breeder stories. Honest. (P.S. Don't forget to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you.)
