An Inquiring Writer Wants To Know:
What Storylines/Setups Are You Tired Of As A Reader?
First of all, I wanted to thank Pearl for hosting me on her blog today to promote my new Ellora’s Cave release, Reveal Me. Reveal Me is the story of Alana and Carter, old frenemies from high school. Alana didn’t really give Carter a fair shot back then and now he’s determined to create a different result after their chance meeting at a voyeuristic sex club called Kink. This story is very special to my heart for a lot of reasons and I’ve grown really attached to these characters and this “world.” The story about Alana’s best friend Kelly is finished and with my editor and I’m in the process of writing two more connected stories about other characters in this world. Part of that world is Kink, who has become almost as real to me as another character.
Kink isn’t the typical sex club I read about most often. There are rooms for the more adventurous who are interested in BDSM, etc. but I’m not focused on exploring that aspect here. Kink’s more about the freedom to be yourself, with anyone watching. My characters all, in one way or another, learn if voyeurism, public sex or sex with more than one partner works for them. For some of them, it does. For some, it really does not.
I’d like to think “my” sex club’s a bit different than the ones out there already but I’m curious if there are certain setups or storylines you’ve seen enough of and aren’t interested in reading any more about. Maybe it’s a certain type of were-creature you’ve read more about than you’d ever care to. I’m sincerely curious.
My iffy subject area right now is menages. They seem to be everywhere and sometimes too much of a good thing can be…too much. But I read a really fabulous one last week that raised the bar — Raising The Stakes by Jess Dee. I’m also writing one in the next book in the Kink series but I’m determined to make it just a little different.
So now it’s your turn! What type of story or trope has you crying, “Enough already”? Cari will pick a random commenter to win a copy of Reveal Me.

Alana MacGregor craves excitement, but when her sometimes lover dumps her at a popular sex club, she wonders if she’s outgrown her live-fast-and-recover-later lifestyle. The last thing she expects is to run into the nerdy guy she rebuffed in high school—or for him to rock her world in ways no other man ever has.
Hot on the trail of a story, Carter Nicholas can’t believe his luck at encountering the one woman he’s never forgotten. He’s come a long way from being a wall-hugging geek. Now he gets all A’s between the sheets. But can he convince Alana he’s her sure ticket to an unforgettable night—and maybe much more?
