Shona Husk

I'd like to welcome multi-published author Shona Husk to my blog today. She writes for Ellora's Cave, Samhain, Source Books and Carina Press and has also been published with The Wild Rose Press. Her book, The Goblin King (on my 'must buy' list) is a finalist in the fav paranormal romance of 2011 category of the ARRAwards!

Phew!! She's been busy!

Shona's latest release with Ellora's Cave is out today - and I have to say it looks HOT! (what a cover!!)

Take it away Shona =)

And then there were three…
I was reading erotic romance long before I started writing it. In part I was reading for pleasure, but also to learn how to write sexy love scenes.
I read everything from cowboys to aliens, hot vanilla to BDSM, m/m and ménage. There was always something about a ménage that I loved—reading about one that is.
So I knew one of my Lucinda’s Lover (Vampire rock band) stories would involve one. Because I like to push my boundaries as a writer I wanted it to be mmf instead of mfm. Usually I write mf. It’s nice and simple and there are only two sets of feelings to consider. Writing Owen and Jack was fun; they were in an existing relationship, but needing to bring Katya into it. Adding that third person complicated everything.
The relationship dynamic changed and the sex scenes became more tricky (His hand is where? Who is she kissing? Is that physically possible?)
After writing a ménage story of my own I have developed a new level of respect for writers who tackle the ménage or more on a regular basis. Of course now I’ve done three I wonder if I could do four?

Sharing Sirius is book 3 of the Lucinda’s Lover Vampires.
In ancient Vampires, boredom can literally kill. When Jack sees Owen beginning to succumb, he knows he is no longer enough. Owen needs the blood of another lover to survive. So Jack turns to Katya, hoping she can entice Owen into living again.
At first Katya denies her lust to her boss, even though she’s wanted him for years. With Jack promising to look the other way, she has a scorching-hot encounter with Owen.
Owen doesn’t want to admit what is happening to him. He doesn’t want to cheat and break Jack’s heart, and yet he can’t resist Katya. But Katya and Jack have their own sexy plan. And neither of them intend to lose Owen.

Hi Shona and Mel,

Have and read 'The Goblin King' thank you very much :) and am enjoying a giggle here with 'whose hands are where?' That is so true.

PIcture me blushing, but I think you'll need quite a bit of stamina, Shona, to 'do' four!

Thanks, ladies for keeping the blog short and interesting.

Good luck with the releases, Shona.

I've not been game enough to try a menage yet, but like you Shona enjoy reading them. Maybe that should be one of my challenges for this year.

Congrats - looking forward to getting hold of the books.
