If you'd told me ten years ago that I would have been writing erotic romance, I would have had one question for you: What is erotic romance?

I'll admit it. I had no clue what went on in that section of the bookstore. I was more a literary fiction/crime novels/historical non-fiction kind of girl. To be fair, that was also the kind of book forced on me by the lovely people in the English department of my university. There was no course on popular fiction or romance (unless you wanted to read a Victorian romance).

It wasn't until we got hit with a huge storm in 2010 that I even bothered to find out what was actually available. It was with a bit of luck that I stumbled across a website devoted to erotica. I really had no idea that people actually wrote that kind of thing (yes, I was naive). I'd been working on a young adult novel (that thankfully will never be seen), and I needed a break. What the hell, right? Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Turns out it was far easier for me to write erotic romance than young adult. Probably because it fits my natural writing style and voice better. So, to all of you out there preparing for the oncoming storm, feel free to search the internet for random things. You never know where it might lead! 

Power Play by Emily Cale 
Natalie Fritz didn't need a night of sexual adventure as payment for setting her friend up, but she wouldn't turn it down either. Determined to make sure she gets exactly what she wants, she makes a call to Madame Eve and requests not one, but two dates for the evening. What she doesn't expect is for those men to be players on her friend's hockey team.

Ian and Todd find that sharing women provides all parties with more pleasure. Finding someone who buys into their theory is a little harder. So they turn to Madame Eve's 1 Night Stand service to find them a partner. When they meet Natalie, they discover a gorgeous woman who turns them on physically and intellectually.

Everyone knows that relationships are meant to be between two people, but what happens when it takes three to make the night worthwhile? Can they take a leap of faith or will their time be limited to one night?

I think it's so cool that's how you started writing, Emily!

All the best!

I stumbled into erotic romance too! I'd written three thrillers before I realised I was more into the love bit than the rest.
What will this latest storm bring!
