Authors Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend on Hot Bods in Romance

Today we welcome not one, but TWO authors here to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend both have releases on November 20; Elle's is Rocky Mountain Angel, and Vivian's title is Getting Hotter. They're with us today to talk about some hot bodies in romance. Thanks, Elle and Vivian!

Elle: I have never read a romance novel where the hero has anything less than a chiseled, rippled, delectable body. Not unless he lets himself go for a while after a devastating loss or trauma, but that period of extra-pound mourning doesn’t usually last long. The moment he’s back in action, he’s toned and muscly again—and let’s be honest, that’s the way we like it. Because, come on, we read to escape.  To fantasize.

[And why not? It's fun!...]

Author Elle Kennedy: Two’s Company—Is Three a Crowd?

Today we welcome author Elle Kennedy to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Earlier this year, Elle wrote about kick-ass heroines,  but today, she's got something else on her mind. Namely, what her heroine might be getting up to when she's not kicking ass. Her latest release, Feeling Hot, continues her Out of Uniform series, and it includes the hero and heroine inviting someone else to their party. Here's Elle talking about the difficulties of writing menage scenes. Thanks, Elle!

Threesomes. Man, are they hard. (That’s what she said). Okay, mind out of the gutter. I mean, hard to write. As a reader, I always love a good threesome in my erotic romances. As a writer, I find it difficult at times to construct a ménage a trois, not just in terms who-does-what-where-does-this-body-part-go but also the emotional ramifications that follow.

I think the following exchange between Ross and Joey from Friends really sums up some of the problems that can arise when it comes to threesomes.

Ross: Hey Joey, did you ever have a threesome?

Joey: Well uh .. look Ross I uh .. I think Carol’s great and I’m sure you’re a very attractive man, but I ...

Ross: No! The reason I’m asking is that ... I sorta had one last night.

Joey: You?

Ross: Yeah!

Joey: Wow!

Ross: Yeah!

Joey: All right! So, was it amazing?

[Well...was it?]

Author Elle Kennedy on Kick-Ass Heroines (’Cause Heroes Shouldn’t Get to Have All the Fun)

Midnight Rescue by Elle KennedyToday we’re thrilled to welcome author Elle Kennedy to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Next week, Elle will release Midnight Rescue, the first book in her new Killer Instincts series. With words like “desperate,” “sex,” “dangerous,” and “passion” in Midnight Rescue’s blurb, who better than Elle to offer her picks for the finest in kick-ass heroines? (See the end of the post to find out how to enter for a chance to win a copy of the book!)

Welcome, Elle!

I’m one of those readers who absolutely adores kick-ass heroines. To me, there’s nothing more satisfying than a woman who can hold her own against an alpha male, a woman who can save herself rather than rely on someone else to save her, a woman who instills honest-to-God fear in those she comes up against. 

I know that most readers enjoy strong heroines, but when it comes to kicking butt, I’ve spoken to many readers who’ve admitted they prefer the hero to be the one doing the butt kicking. Which I understand. Powerful alpha heroes are sexy. Who doesn’t want a tough, capable man coming to your rescue and sweeping you off your feet? 

[That said: Bring on the badass heroines!...]
