Menage in Romance Stories

Well, not exactly free. But the facts are out there. Out of the fiction genre, romance fiction controls fifty four per cent of the market share according to an RWA study released in 2009. With e-readers like the Kindle, Nook, and the Kobo putting literature at one's fingertips, readers have a much easier time finding their favorite authors.

Words, especially well-crafted ones can paint the picture and set a woman's libido racing faster than any skin flick or how to sex videos. The highly rated genres? Gay male romance and bisexual erotic romance featuring ménage characters rank up there highest in fiction trends among romance readers.

Bisexuality is enjoying a resurgence in popularity in erotic fiction. For an industry that grossed $1.36 Billion in sales in 2009, during the beginning of a downturn in the economy, romance novels held a steady portion of market share, thanks in part to growing e-book sales.

Women make up the majority of romance readers and out of that number, the increase in readership for alternative stories has continued. Male-Female-Male romances where the men fall in love with each other, in addition to the heroine dominate the reading list.

Women love the fantasy of two men together and for the unselfish, there is a cerebral element involved. Because heterosexual sex has the act of submission by a woman, and her pussy being penetrated by the strong shaft of a man, subliminally the act becomes about dominance. In gay sex, there is often a top and a bottom and when penetration occurs, it's the same mentality. Add to that the versatility of a woman and the fun increases.

When I wrote His Reign and started the Opeth Pack Saga, I gave my hero two heroines because of the obvious fantasy but digging deeper into their characters let me see that the two women were alike enough to be lovers with Józsi, but different enough that they had distinctive personalities. Lukina, younger, fiery and passionate, appeals strongly to Józsi's rational side. Ilona is sweeter, a little more delicate and adds balance to Lukina's fire by being Józsi's heart.

I hope you'll give His Reign a try once it's out from Secret Cravings Publishing!

Book Blurb:

Józsi wants to maintain a normal life away from the Opeth pack. Moving from Hungary to Texas was a big change that he felt was necessary in order to avoid a prophecy that would ultimately make him Alpha of a dying pack, a responsibility he doesn’t want.

Ilona and Lukina grew up loving Józsi even after he moved away. Yet the current pack Alpha has gone rogue and begun kidnapping and abusing the younger wolves that remained without mates. Ilona, becomes his next target and Józsi must return to once again deal with pack politics only to find that his heart misses what it could have. Can Lukina and Ilona convince him to return to Hungary in order to rule the Opeth pack and mate or will Kiba destroy them in a fit of insanity?

HANDS OFF - an erotic contemporary romance short novella

Naomi Hill wants to feel alive again. The loss of her husband left her senses dull and her heart empty, yet every time she's around Jude--her late husband's best friend--her body responds in a way she can't ignore. With a push from a friend and a party game that forces her and Jude alone in an empty room, she finally finds the courage to seduce the one man who can bring her back to life.

Self-made millionaire, Jude Colter, defied odds and grew up to be a successful man. The only thing missing in his life now is Naomi. He's kept his hands off her since first meeting her in high school...for two reasons. One, for years she'd been obsessed with his best friend and business partner. And two, she rouses raw feelings in him that make him question his theories on women...and the possibility of love. When an unexpected opportunity arises, he must decide just how far he's willing to go to win her heart for good.
