The ABCs of Erotica

Hi Malia! Thank you for featuring us on your blog and introducing us to your followers. First we’d like to share our latest release Rainie’s Lake with the readers and then let everyone know how we began writing together, and a little bit about our back list books. BTW, there will be a drawing for a birthday celebration. See details below!

Rainie’s Lake is our first paranormal erotic romance. We’ve been told to warn the readers to have a box of tissues handy! Rainie has received 5 star reviews. You can read the reviews on Amazon.

Taking a long over due vacation, Art Instructor, Dylan Bishop is eager to start his trip to the cabin in the mountains. When he saw the photo online with the rental ad, he knew this was his destination. Being drawn to the lake nestled behind the cabin with a private dock, Dylan hopes to regain his inspiration to paint.

His vacation takes an erotic turn when he meets Rainie Marks on a foggy morning by the dock. She is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. However, there is sadness and a mystery about her. Finding his inspiration, he sketches her one evening and unable to resist the passion that has sparked between them, Rainie and Dylan share a sensual night together.

When Rainie tells him the truth about her past and the lake, the mystery she hides unfolds. The key to everything is the lake. Will Dylan be able to help her put the past to rest?

Read an excerpt and enjoy a characters’ interview here!

Now fans have told us how we met again is the start of a romantic story and we should write a book. Who knows maybe we will. *both of us smiles*

Steve Tindle and Brenda Woody were high school friends in Georgia who reconnected, on a social network, after 30 years of leading separate lives. During their re-acquaintance, they found their past and interests were similar; they had written poems, songs, and both had the desire to be published. Their combined experiences and fantasies inspired their first erotic novel Best Lover in Town, published June 2010 by Charles River Press. The rights for BLT were reverted to Brenda and Steve July 2011. Best Lover in Town was re-edited and re-released with a new cover.

Best Lover in Town

Janet Anderson is searching for sexual magic in the man who can match her in the bed. Janet suspects all this and more lies within her handsome boss, Nathan Lovett. During a work-related visit to Janet’s home, Nathan and Janet give in to an attraction beyond their control, and soon find themselves immersed in a pleasurable night of uninhibited sex and heated passion. To their dismay, their luscious interlude is interrupted, and Nathan must leave on a plane to a far away place; their whirlwind coupling on hold.

Three years pass, and with Nathan gone, Janet’s co-worker and best friend, Madison, urges Janet to end her mourning and explore other possibilities. Janet attends parties and events to fill the void left by Nathan, meeting four other men. Though she experiences new sexual delights and discovers more about herself; her suitors fall flat, and Janet is left longing for the touch of her Nathan. Will the best lover in town return to finish what he started?

Brenda moved to Dallas in 2009 to be closer to Steve, start a new chapter of her life and work on future books. Their second book Temptation Triggers, an anthology of seven erotic short stories, was released June 2011.

The publisher asked us to write a short story to be featured in an upcoming anthology. He liked the story so much he asked us to write more and dedicated the book to our work.

Temptation Triggers

Temptation Triggers captures the wickedness of sexual fantasy, the mystery of unexplored territory and the fulfillment of open communication. Among these thought-provoking stories, two friends find themselves drawn into a dark erotic world, a woman encounters a mysterious man and a mature couple discovers hush-hush desires about each other. With different styles of writing, Temptation Triggers reveals erotica that is passionate and spellbinding.

Triangle of Secrets, Book One, a ménage M/M/F story, was published October 2011. This was our first ménage. We enjoyed writing Triangles so much we are working on six installments featuring various relationships; F/M/F, M/F/M, F/F/F and so on. Steve is looking forward to completing the F/F/F! LOL

Triangle of Secrets, Book One, is the story of three ordinary people trying to make their way in the corporate world and keeping their personal lives out of it. Morgan, the Vice President of a prestigious company, dates her best friend and co-worker, Derek, to hide her secret affair with Scott, the much younger mail clerk. Derek appears with Morgan socially to hide the fact he is gay. He is afraid his lifestyle will hinder promotions. Scott wants out of the mailroom and will do anything his lover asks of him. What happens when Derek and Scott meet at Morgan’s house to fulfill her wildest fantasy? Will the triangle break or will it be completed?

Black & White Affair, submitted in a holiday contest 2010 and received 3rd place, was expanded and is available as a short read for $0.99.

Works in progress include Scarlett’s Cowboy and TOS, Bk 2 and 3 to be released 2012. Future projects include: TOS, Bk 4, 5 & 6, an erotic romance time travel (ancient Eygpt) and a BDSM in notes to work on.

As you can see we’ve been busy since we met up again. Our stories are penned with the perspective of both male and female point of view regarding sexual desires and pleasures. We both write the POV for male and female, and have been told by readers they can’t tell who wrote what. We compliment each other is this area. This is why it’s awesome writing as a team. We’re both open-minded and not worried at all about asking each other questions.

We’d also like to mention our new website with Author Tonya Kinzer. A Naughty Reader’s Boudoir is a place for readers and authors to meet, and chat about the naughty books they read and write. Naughty Reader’s features authors who tantalize your erotic fantasies with wicked words. For readers, we provide author interviews, contests, books to explore and blog hops. For authors, we have created advertising packages to meet anyone’s budget and help them promote their work.

  5. What a great story of how you reconnected and the stuff you cook up looks hot!

  6. I love that you write together. And Happy Birthday!

  7. Great covers. I’m intrigued by how two authors collaborate on a book. I’d love to hear how you work together – fascinating.

  8. How could I not be fascinated by a story called “Rainie’s Lake?” It sounds really intriguing, as do your other titles. Congrats on all of your success, and here’s wishing you lots more!

  9. Lol! Raine, you simply have to read it, based on title alone! 😀

    This story sounds beyond intriguing. I hope I win!

  10. How awesome to write as a team. I’m not sure I could do that successfully. I look forward to reading your book! 🙂

  11. I am very interested in how two people can write together! It’s awesome! Writing can be such a solitary endeavor but you have found a way to share it. I will have to pick up one of your books.

    Hi Brenda and Steve, neat to run into you over here! I loved Rainie’s Lake – hot and sweet at the same time. What could be better!


  13. dc and Adriana, it’s nice to see you two pop in! Everyone else that commented – great to meet you!
    Writing for Steve and I came naturally when we hooked up. We actually wrote our first book BLT virtually in Word by connecting our computers through a software called Teamview. Steve would type, I would type, he’d delete and I would add back. LOL We kept our cell phones on speaker and talked about the story. It was great!
    Now we sit side by side and still use the same software to craft our stories. The awesome thing about our relationship is the open communication. We ask each other questions and talk very frankly about sex between us and past partners.
    I imagine other couples who write together like Adriana Kraft and A P Miller to name a few enjoy the same open communication.
    Raine – love your name! If she wins LOL we promise we use!!!
    Tonight’s the last night to comment; tomorrow we draw the two winners. Good luck everyone!

  14. Congratulations to Raine Thomas and Grace Elliot! You were selected as winners. I’ll be contacting you to see where you want your prize sent.
