I am so pleased to welcome Lia Davis today as guest blogger on Jenna’s Journal. She’s got a real treat for us, talking about writing erotic and her recent release Ravished Before Sunrise.
When I started my writing career, I never thought I’d venture down the erotic romance road. I had never read it before and was among those who thought erotic romance was all sex. But during my research of the different genres of romance I discover that was far from the truth.
Erotic romance is romance with hotter and more frequent sex scenes with explicit language. But the main plot still focuses on the romance between the couple and has a happily ever after, or, in some cases in series, a happy for now ending.
Ravished Before Sunrise is my first erotic romance. It won’t be my last. J Since writing it and going through the edits, I found I can’t not write erotic sex scenes. I love the sensuality and the connection between the couple and the freedom of writing it. I’m free to use words that make some people blush. In fact they would make me blush to speak out loud. LOL. That’s what is so great about writing. I can create worlds and scenes that I would never see or do.
Thanks so much for having me over.
You are so welcome, Lia. My pleasure.

Blurb for Ravished Before Sunrise:
Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the
shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the
paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or
understands her and she’s forced to live a quiet, boring life in
hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating
service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of
her romantic fantasies. She’s to hunt her very own vampire
and have her wicked way him.
Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs
him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching
agency. At first he’s appalled by the idea, but as he reads the
details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will
get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted
and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his
own for his little vixen.
However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema’s
inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.

Excerpt for Ravished Before Sunrise:
Emalee’s pulse raced as she drummed her fingers on her desk and searched the website. A giddiness
she hadn’t known since senior prom ran through her. The site claimed unlimited possibilities, a chance
for adventure. Could they mean it? Because she’d already seen things beyond what humans deemed
possible. Hell, her whole existence was unimaginable.
Her life had taken a lonesome turn when a friend she hadn’t seen since high school noted how much
younger than the rest of her classmates she looked. Her long-lasting youth had become a liability.
Drawing too much attention to her unusual gift wouldn’t prove wise. In some cases, it could get her
killed. With no alternative, she’d closed the door on her life among humans and moved into the local
witch coven, where everyone was different.
“What will you do?” Her best friend since preschool, a coven member in good standing, sat next to her
for moral support and encouragement. Ema didn’t need much encouragement. The second Beth had
mentioned a one-night stand, she’d been hooked. And Madame Eve’s dating service would save her
from dying of boredom, at least for one night.
But could she go through with it? A wicked smile tugged at her lips and her inner voice said, “Hell, yeah.”
Human strangers gave her a sense of safety. They knew nothing about her past or her unusual abilities.
“Just one night?”
Lia will give away a $5 Starbucks GC, Starbucks Via sample pack, and a swag pack to one winner at the end of the tour.
