On Monday we were talking about what turns you on in a man. Hands. Face. Eyes. Working man’s physique. Thanks to all of you who commented and provided help as I busily revise my current work-in-progress.
Which brings us to today’s more wicked thoughts segment. With stories getting sexier by the millisecond, what are the things you like and dislike seeing in your stories?
For me, a story isn’t really sexy unless there is some emotional connection between the hero or heroine. Even if it’s lust at first sight, there has to be the promise of more between them for me to really get involved in the story.
How about you? Do you need that emotional connection? Must there be a happily-ever-after or the promise of one for you to be satisfied at the end of the story?

Now that I’ve got your attention this Monday morning, I’d like to hear from you about your Guilty Pleasures. You see, the three Nocturne Bites I was writing are now becoming Nocturne Cravings. Great name, Cravings. It speaks to what we desire. What we need. What turns us on.
Contrary to what some life coach said about romances ruining women, women can separate reality from fantasy. Reading romances is about being entertained and it’s also about believing in the happily-ever-after. That everyone will eventually find the person who is right for them and not necessarily a “perfect” man. I think we all know that there are no “perfect” people out there, but we hope to find someone who sustains us emotionally. That’s what romance is about.
But back to this discussion. What do you notice first in a man? Is there something that really attracts you, either physically or emotionally?
I have to confess that nice hands are something that catch my eye. Strong. Masculine. Well-kept but not manicure perfect. Real hands.
As for the emotional part: humor. A man who can make me laugh even when I am in my deepest dumpiest mood is golden.
How about you? Please take a moment to share and inspire me as I work on these upcoming novellas.
