Today we're pleased to welcome author Mia Gabriel to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Mia's Lord Savage, the first book in the Savage trilogy, is out now, and tells the story of a woman who's in the throes of her first truly pleasurable experience with the enigmatic Lord Savage. In addition to having written an erotic historical (or historical erotic!), Mia loves super-sexy books set in the past, and is here to share her favorites. Thanks, Mia!
I’ve always found the past a sexy place to visit in books. There’s always candlelight, the beds are big and mysterious with curtains that close around them, and the clothes are so much more seductive, silk and velvet and corsets and major jewels. Best of all, there are none of those annoying modern distractions: no deadlines to make or emails to answer, and no historical hero, ever, is going to hear the prompt on his cell phone and say, “Just a sec, babe, gotta check this.”
Nor will a historical hero be PC. He’ll be super-manly, with muscles he earned doing dangerous, manly things instead of the gym. He’ll know when to be a gentleman, and when not to. He won’t be distracted by Sunday football, because there isn’t any yet, and besides, there’s no TV. No, his main focus is bedding and ravishing the heroine (which right there sounds so much sexier than hooking up).
