Green Sex

Sideling HillSideling Hill, June 2006

Today is Blog Action Day, and that got me thinking about sex in the great outdoors. I've written quite a bit of it... and "researched" even more.

Check out the outdoor antics in "Wetter Has Never Been Better" (the lead story in my EPPIE Award-winning anthology, fine flickering hungers). In it, you'll find a threesome in the pool at the base a waterfall, girl sex at the volcanic hot springs, and a mouth-watering blow job in the rain forest -- all set in Costa Rica.

Capping that same anthology is "Boiling Point," which involves sex while bound to a tree.

"Pura Vida!" (included in Phaze Fantasies I, also set in Costa Rica) features sex on the beach and in an open-air bungalow.

In Double Header, Will & I wrote some steamy sex in a roadside field. "Amichu" (one of the stories in ArtiFactual) contains a supernatural sex scene in the snow of the Peruvian Andes. And San Diego Sunset culminates in an encounter on Black's Beach.

Lastly, in my Phaze Flare "Pantheism 101" (a free download), there's rather ethereal sex in a park during a rainstorm.

So ... tell me about YOUR experiences (or your fantasies) between Mother Nature's legs!

Sexy Reads reviews Double Header

Fellow Phaze author and Sexy Reads mistress, Victoria Blisse had some wonderful things to say about Double Header:

Alessia Brio and Will Belegon deliver hot, top class erotica constantly and Double Header is not an exception to this rule.

Alessia and Will write seamlessly, I’d never guess two authors worked on this story and they write convincingly teasing all your senses.

5 Hearts for ArtiFactual

ArtiFactualThe Romance Studio gives ArtiFactual a glowing review:

I found this a thoroughly delightful erotic romp, complete with adventure, plenty of sex, and a few mysteries. The unusual items for sexual pleasure were especially intriguing. Amanda and Bruce are well suited to each other, playing off each other’s strengths. They complement each other well. I found a touch of comedy in one chapter that really had me going. I laughed so hard tears streamed from eyes and it took me a few minutes to start reading again. I loved it! The amount of detail the authors use in describing the items in the museum and their backgrounds reflected a thorough of the subject matter, incorporated well into the story without reading as a lecture. I recommend this story to anyone looking for a hot read on the beach or in the bed. You’ll laugh with Bruce and Amanda, snarl with them, and solve the puzzles and mysteries as they wind their way toward each other and a great partnership.

Available in both ebook and print from Phaze and other online booksellers!

Andrea Spring lifted her head and, sweeping her dark hair from her eyes, peeked over the broad shoulder of the shortstop in search of the clock. Six fifty-three, if it could be believed. With a sigh, she carefully removed the second baseman's arm from her waist and eased her nude body toward the foot of the king-sized bed. Neither man stirred as she extricated the meat from their human sandwich, chuckling as her foot landed on a sticky condiment.

She wondered how long she'd slept. Couldn't have been more than a couple hours, since it was already approaching midnight when they reached the hotel where the team was staying during its three-game series with the Sox. The final game in that series started in just over six hours, so she'd soon have to rouse her sleeping studs if she was to receive the type of farewell fuck she desired.

The used condom adhered to the bottom of her foot, and she hopped as she peeled it off. Closing the door as quietly as possible, Andrea flicked on the bathroom light and blinked as her eyes adjusted to its garish brightness. She splashed cold water on her face, finger-brushed her teeth with the tiny tube of complimentary toothpaste, and used the bidet to freshen up before returning to find the vacancy she'd created unchanged.

Slipping her body between the fine specimens of male flesh, she squirmed until she rested on her back and took a cock in each hand. "Batters' up," she whispered.

Why Buy?

A while back, there was a poll on LiveJournal asking readers what promotional tools led them to purchase a book. The results were very interesting, and I just started a thread on Amazon's romance forum to continue the discussion. Pop on over and share what triggers that reach-for-your-wallet reflex!
