I Would Do It Here, I Would Do It There…I Would Do It Anywhere!
It’s been raining a lot here. A lot. And it’s been this warm, tropical kind of rain. Which makes you think–
Um, what was I saying again? Oh, right! Ahem. The endless tropical rain is making me think about that special frisson that comes from daring to have sex outdoors. Or in semi-public places. It makes me think about a heroine being kinda naughty with just the right hot guy.
(By the way, I just noticed—that is a GIANT rock on her finger. Wow. Okay, back to the topic at hand.)
One thing I liked about writing my first romance novel (Diva Submissive–check it out here) is that I got to find all kinds of ways for the hero and heroine to do what they shouldn’t be doing, in locations where they were being bad–very, very bad.
The sexy no-holds-barred cake fight, for instance, at his ex-fiance’s wedding was one of the most fun scenes I think I’ve ever written. Just sayin’.
One of the earliest Harlequin novels I ever read (tho’ I can’t remember the title or author) had the big sex scene take place down in the dirt, between the vines of a vineyard during harvest. The scene was redolent with grapes, toes, dirt, bare shoulders…you could smell the musk of ripeness and fertility coming off the page. Of course she winds up pregnant afterwards…I swear I almost got pregnant myself, just reading it. ;>
So I put it out to you, gentle readers–any great romance novel/movie locations that had sex-out-of-the-bedroom locations that you think were amazingly well done?
