Berengaria Brown Talks About Writing from the Male POV

What do men want?

Answer? Not much different from women. They want love, respect and someone to believe in them. But, and there always is a but, they're more direct in their needs and desires. Sex is like breathing. They want hard and rough and hot. The partner who can take all that and more is their ideal.

Writing the male POV? Think of the men in your life. The man you love. The men that drive you mad with their grunts and unwanted opinions. Then think of the man who beds you and makes you scream with pleasure because he knows exactly what you want and need. Think edgy, hard and possessive. Think need and tenderness.

Men. They're complex. To write from their perspective? A real challenge. Nothing is worse than reading a male/male book where one of the characters' names could be changed to a female name and the story wouldn't change at all. But written with understanding? Ahh the best romance and hottest sex ever.

Hi, I'm Berengaria Brown. I am a multipublished author of erotic romance and have books out that are contemporary and paranormal with a few historicals coming later this year. As well as MF and MMM I have FF stories and quite a few MMF ménages. You can find out all about me and my books at:

My new male/male/male story, Carnal Connections, from Breathless Press is released today.




Blurb:
Ithiel meets Jason and Toby at a wedding, and a night of hot passion follows. But what will happen the next morning? Jason is darkly handsome and delicious. Toby is quicksilver lightness and fun—and Ithiel wants them both. But can three men form an ongoing relationship, or is one night all they will ever have?

Now, here's a taste of Carnal Connections.
Warning: ADULT Excerpt
Ithiel was woken the next morning by the very energetic Toby. He threw the comforter off, and lay across Ithiel's and Jason's legs—his mouth, teasing from one cock to the next.

"Oh yeah. This is the kind of wake-up call I like," Ithiel said, thrusting up into Toby's mouth.

"Mmmrf. Two hot cocks. How can that be bad?" Toby transferred his mouth to Jason's cock.

"God yeah, but we could do this better as a team," replied Jason, sitting up. He moved to show them his idea.

Very soon, they were arranged in a triangle of overlapping limbs: Ithiel's mouth filled with Jason's cock, Jason sucking Toby, and Toby licking Ithiel's balls.
Ithiel continued to torment Jason while his fingers ran through Toby's blond locks. Then someone's hand started playing with one of his nipples and Ithiel's brain began to fry from the heat of the moment. He concentrated on scraping his teeth gently over the head of Jason's cock. Gradually, he withdrew his lips, sucking as much of the length as he could deep into his mouth, then relaxing the back of his throat to take the entire cock in his mouth. He slid his hand from Toby's hair to his chest and gave a sharp pull on the nipple ring.

"Ahh," Toby gasped.

But it was so hard to concentrate when Toby was running his tongue under the sensitive ridge of Ithiel's cock. Fingers were rolling his balls. Another hand was pinching his nipple.

Shit. I'm gonna come!

A Player's Agenda by Ambrielle Kirk (Available now thru Breathless Press)

Have you ever had a crush on someone you thought you could never have? Ever lusted after the cute guy who sat next to you in the cubicle at work? What about the sexy hunk of a janitor who came to clean your office while you worked after hours? Or maybe the hottie who sat behind you amongst a class full of strangers?

A Player's Agenda is a glimpse into one couple's steamy encounter and is published through Breathless Press.

Blurb-
Mariah has had to work hard for everything in life, and that includes her MBA in Accounting. She doesn't have time for promiscuous sexy jocks with only one thing on their mind. She'd have to be content with daydreams about former football player Damien, whose nightly sexual conquests made the campus rumor mill. No one is more surprised than she, when Damien approaches her after class one day with a lust-filled agenda on his mind. Does Mariah have the right mix of bedroom moves to tame this player…forever?

Excerpt-
"How long are we going to pretend that we don't want each other?"

The question should have embarrassed her, instead the voice intrigued her. She'd heard him speak before. Only once, about a month ago, did he direct a simple hello to her.

"Mariah?" His hands moved down her shoulders, arm, and elbow, then his fingers curved slowly around the small of her waist. "How long?" His voice was deep and rugged.

"W-what are you talking about?"

He grinned. "I don't want to pretend any longer, Mariah."

She loved the way her name sounded coming off his tongue like a melody. It melted her insides like ice on the summer solstice. "I don't understand what you are talking about."

His hand was almost big enough to wrap around her entire waist. "This." When he gripped her tighter against his pelvis, she swallowed a small cry of shock. The hard rod that pressed against her abs was a clear indication of exactly what he was talking about.

He leaned down and spoke against her ear, causing goose bumps to rise on her exposed skin. "You are quite a little vixen, aren't you? Do you deliberately dress in tight jeans and fitted little dresses to get attention? Do your hips move on their own accord like a gypsy? How many times are you going to bend down in front of me pretending to pick up the same pen over and over again?"

Utter shock ran through her. She hadn't been aware that she drew attention to herself like that. She didn't wear baggy jeans, because she felt uncomfortable in them. She wore sundresses sometimes because some of the classrooms were extremely hot and muggy. She didn't pay attention to the way she walked much. And some of the desks were extremely old with tilted desktops that caused her pens to roll off during the lectures.

"I wasn't trying to draw attention."

He walked forward causing her to move back until her spine was flat against the wall. "You don't want this?"

A little Sex Therapy, Spiritual Style
Are you in need of a little boost in your relationship? Is the sex not a good as it used to be? Do you find you're not as amorous as you once were? Then I have the solution you are looking for. To make an appointment just stop by 69 Lover's Lane. We have a very qualified spirit who knows all the right things to say, all the right moves to show you to get back to where you once were as a sex machine. Only one catch. Your soul may be held until payment is complete.

Did I catch your attention? I hope so.

Gina and James Anderson are an average couple. They've been married for ten years, work together as Paranormal Investigators, but lately, the love seems to be gone. Gina has noticed that James seems distant, and their love-making is few and far between. She's afraid that she might be losing him.

James just hasn't been feeling right, lately. The pizzazz in his life is gone. Though he loves his job, lately, he's been bored with it. And sex, well…he's just not in the mood. He's contemplating walking away, not just from the job, but his marriage as well. Little does he know, this job he's taken might very well be his last.

The premise for this story came to me in one of those flash moments where I just couldn't write fast enough. I knew from the beginning it would be a short story, so it really didn't take long to get it down. You've got a married couple, working together on a daily basis, but something is missing. Why not spice up their relationship with a Ghost Therapist?

I love ghost stories and when the idea for this one came about, I was a little worried how it would be received. I mean, I've created a ghost who plays with a couple in a sexual way. A ghost who plants thoughts and feelings into a couple. Entraps them in their own desires.

Much to my surprise and delight, Sex Therapy: Spiritual Style is a hit.
So if you're interested in a little Sex Therapy, check out my book.

Here is a glimpse.
Sex Therapy: Spiritual Style
Available at www.breathlesspress.com
Authors website: www.shielasbooks.ca

Blurb:
Therapy was never so sexy…or so dangerous.
Paranormal Investigators, Gina and James Anderson have lost the pizzazz in their marriage. Despite being near the verge of separating they take a job investigating a haunted house. Little do they know the spirit within has ulterior motives.
Sex is the name of the game and the spirits are determined to win.


Excerpt:
She's getting moist for you.

He'd never heard voices before. Never on the job or in his daily life. But he couldn't deny the coincidence as the voice echoing in his head registered on the EMF.

Her body aches to be touched by you, to be pleased by you.

"Little do you know, buddy. She hasn't wanted me in a good long time."

"Here you go. There's a baseline temp of 20 degrees Celsius in the other room. It didn't change as I was walking through the hall."

Startled by her appearance, James cleared his throat and held up the EMF. "Got another spike. So far, the kitchen and two bedrooms are registering activity. Let's check the third bedroom."

She longs to feel you in her hands, to know as you grow to harden you grow because of her.

He left the room, feeling a tightness in his groin, something he hadn't felt in a long time.

Temp in here is the same as the other room,"” Gina announced as she entered the third bedroom. "I'm not as hot in here as I was in the other room though. Maybe we should test the temp in the first room."

"There's a spike in this room as well. But you're right, we should check the temperature in the first bedroom. Leading the way, he entered the first bedroom and the heat seared into him.

"Major spike in temperature here. We have a hot spot."

She wasn't kidding. He was feeling it right to his toes. "See anything now on the camera?"

"Hang on. Here, take this."

He took the thermometer and as their hands touched her felt the heat engorge him.
"Oh…wow."

He took the thermometer from her, taking a deep breath. "What?"

"Did you just…feel something?"

"Like what?" Like he didn't know.

Her body craves you, need you to fill her. She wants you on top, pressing yourself to her, separating her as you thrust inside.

"I don't know. Like…a warm…sexual desire?"

So it wasn't just him. "I did. Interesting."

"Was anything like this mentioned in the file?"

"The couple said they felt things in the bedroom, weird things, scary things but nothing too specific." He hadn't really urged them to explain what they meant. Which wasn't like him and only added credence to his thoughts of something being wrong with him. He just didn't care like he once did.

"And you didn't ask?"

"No, I didn't ask." His remark was short and filled with a great deal of attitude. "What do you pick up on the camera?"

"Nothing."

"What do you mean, nothing?" Scooping the camera out of her hand, he held it up and scanned the room.

"Just what I said, nothing, but feel free to see that for yourself."

He was, and it pissed him off. "We've got a tricky one."

Hi, Janie! Thanks for hosting me here today at Desire and Craving.

Breathless Press is one year old this August and I’m honored to say that a year ago on August 19th, my short story Clandestine Eyes was first accepted. It was the first short erotica I'd ever written but I loved every minute of it. The challenge of writing erotica is pushing beyond the limits of my shyness to create compelling stories that are a real turn on without being gratuitous.

The year has gone by so fast but what a ride. I worked to understand the intricacies of promotion while giving my autograph to friends and family who proudly printed out their copy. I'm so glad I took the chance on Breathless Press for my short stories. They've proven themselves to be visionaries in the ebook industry. Recently, Clandestine Eyes was turned into an audio book.

Clandestine Eyes is a sizzling hot read hidden behind an innocent cover. A little like me, I suppose. Lol. The story involves covert government agents, which I've always loved the idea of those who work in the shadows to protect others. A story in the spirit of La Femme Nikita and the like. The main characters, Rob Larsen and Coreen Evans are characters whose passion for each other rivals their love of the job.



Without further ado, here’s an excerpt of Clandestine Eyes for everyone's enjoyment.

Clandestine Eyes Excerpt:

Rob’s large warm hand slid beneath her blouse, caressing her overheated skin, before drifting lower to toy with the waistband of her slacks. Coreen didn’t feel the tug of her zipper or the undoing of the button to her slacks before his large fingers stroked the outside of her damp panties.

A jolt of pleasure shuddered through her. She leaned her head back and moaned as he pressed two fingers hard against her clit, the thin material of her panties just barely keeping him out.

Rob nibbled on her ear, then asked, "Does it feel good?"

“Oh, Yes.” Still, she wanted more. Coreen needed the raging hunger inside her to be satisfied. "More."

He slid his hand inside her panties, pressing the length of his middle finger inside her. Tremors of pleasure rocketed through her, causing her belly muscles to twitch. He inserted a second finger, drawing a deep moan from her.

Honoria Ravena has a brand new book, Strapless, that was released Friday Augs 6, the same day as my book (The Wayfarer's Road). She's one of my fellow writers at Breathless Press. Strapless is a juicy little book about two young women who find they may have deeper feelings for each other.





Buy it here: http://www.breathlesspress.com/erotic/forthcoming/strapless.html

Here's what folks are saying about the book:
"It held my interest from the first word to the last…" -Violet Harper of The Pagan & The Pen

"If you want to read something very short, something hot, and something fun, then this story is for you." -S. K. Fero of Got Erotic Romance

Blurb:
Suffering from heartache over her broken engagement due to disapproval from her ex-fiance’s parents, Nadia has sworn off men. Elisheba, who has been a good friend throughout the break-up, has always stood by Nadia—but somehow her friend wants more.

Excerpt:

She blew her bangs out of her face with a frustrated breath and shook her head. "You need to get back out there. Plastic toys are no substitute for human contact."

I grinned. "They're not plastic."

She rolled her eyes. "You miss my point."

"No, I ignored it. I'm not ready to deal with a man yet."

"Then you should be with a woman."

I choked on my tequila shot. My eyes watered as it burned down my throat.

When I stopped coughing, she asked, "What is so funny?"

"I'm straight. In other words: I heart cock."

It was her turn to choke on her drink. "I'm going to have that put on a T-shirt for you, and I’m going to force you to wear it."

"I don't swing that way. And I don't know anyone who does."

Her brown eyes sparkled with mischief. "Occasionally I do." She brushed the back of her soft hand down my cheek. "For you I would. You have soft, expressive eyes, and a body with curves in all the right places."

I could feel the flush creeping into my cheeks. Thomas had never given me such a compliment. A little thrill of excitement curled through my belly. I cleared my throat and sat back in my chair. I wasn’t really surprised that she was bisexual. She was the kind of beauty that made everybody's head turn. Her laughter would make guys cross the bar to talk to her.

But she was hitting on me? This was new territory. Now how to solve this tactfully so I still had a friend in the morning…
