Strong, Sexy, Smart: Romance Heroines FTW!

Marked by Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit RochaWe've got not one, but three* (*technically four!) authors at H&H today, talking about the heroines they love best. Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit Rocha have just released Marked, an erotica anthology tied together by its tattoooed and/or pierced heroes and heroines. Thanks for joining us, ladies!

Today, we’re talking about smart women, and strong women, and sexy women. 

As you do.

And the reason this topic came up was because the three of us, Lauren Dane, Vivian Arend, and Kit Rocha (who is actually Donna Herren and Bree Bridges, so it’s the four of us, but I digress) got to chatting about the things we like in books, and the things we don't, and one thing always leads to another.

In our case, it led to us writing more stories!

But the conversation is an important one to have, as readers and writers. We all enjoy romance, and love to read books with a happily-ever-after. And there are so many different heroes we love, for many reasons. That’s a rabbit hole we can fall into easily—“insert names of current sexy dudes here.”

Are you back?

While the discussion rages on about what makes a hero attractive, ie he’s sexy or smart or…heroic, when it comes to the ladies, tastes can become more rigid. 

What’s a girl got to do to get a little lovin’ around here?

Beyond Pain: Exclusive Excerpt

Kit Rocha

Beyond Pain by Kit Rocha

A woman with no future…

Live fast, die young–anything else is a fantasy for Six. She’s endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They’re completely open about everything, including their sexuality–but she hasn’t survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.

A man without a past…

Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can’t afford–until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn’t enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes–voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won’t share her.

In Bren’s arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they’ve forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human–her love.

Get a sneak peek of Six and Bren's story with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene from Kit Rocha's Beyond Pain (available August 26, 2013).

Sparring usually went better when she wanted to hit Bren.



It wasn’t fair. She’d known that at the start of her restless, uneasy night. She’d known her invitation hadn’t been enthusiastic or seductive, so who could blame Bren for not taking her up on it? But her sense of fairness warped in on itself as those tense moments in front of her door replayed themselves over and over, building embarrassment on self-consciousness until she was half convinced she’d thrown herself at him only to be met with disgusted rejection.
