Today we welcome, Kay Dee Royal!
Hello Kacey, thank you so much for having me today :) Hi everyone, thank you for taking time to visit…let me introduce myself - I’m Kay Dee Royal, an erotic romance author who writes what I love, paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary erotic romance. I’m here today with a guest post relative to One Plus One, my latest contemporary erotic romance. I’ll definitely be looking for some your thoughts on this subject…
Sex Scenes – do they have a greater purpose?
Yes :) *grins*
Okay, so this is my own personal opinion, because it is a personal question, right?
Well, let me add, having the door open on the intimacy of story-stars I’ve come to know and connected with, and who I’ve dutifully watched as their relationship develops into fireworks proportion…my curious mind wants to know about those fireworks, the emotions attached, and the manner in which they are given and received, the entire passion package. Whew…what a sentence! In other words, I want the rest of the story.
I’ve been drawn in, pulled along, enjoying the dish of ice cream, but now I expect the whip cream and cherry on top, maybe throw in a few nuts ;)
Inside that intimacy, there are emotions raw and authentic, can be desperate, longing, lustful, loving, inhibited, or hateful, among many others…but as the passionate act is played out, so are the emotions attached. It’s all part of the story-stars’ story.
It’s not everyone’s dish to see those moments of intimate pleasure (or those not so pleasurable), but it is part of why I love reading and writing erotic romance. Sexual scenes are expected and accepted graciously ;)
Besides…there’s a good possibility I’m going to learn something new along the way, *lol* or a possible ‘you gotta be kiddin’ me’ people really do that?
So, what are your thoughts on sex scenes – what purpose do they have for you?

One Plus One Excerpt ~
“Lacinda Gainesly,” a steward called her name. She saw the sign he held with her name printed in bright purple. She slipped on the first step leading down onto the ship and stumbled past the steward. The sign dropped from his fingers and his arms latched around her body from behind. His quick reflexes saved her face from biting the deck, but his hands cupped both of her breasts and squeezed. Lacinda threw her elbow back into his side.
“Hey, a little respect for the guy who saved your life.”
Lacinda shrugged out of his grasp. She met his gaze and realized this was the same man who picked her up from her hotel in a long black limo, only then he was dressed in black instead of the white uniform he now wore.
“You’re the driver.”
“I’m a lot of things, like possibly a hero.” His eyes looked as happy as his lips.
She noticed his smile, the same he shared earlier when he asked her questions about why she took the cruise quiz. Lacinda thought he was simply a driver for the cruise company so she shared some of her story. He knew about Alex dying in a car crash on the way to their wedding. She searched her memory for anything else she might have shared which could embarrass her later.
“Alas fair maiden, your chambers await your timely arrival,” he said, faking a British accent. He held his gloved hand out. Lacinda refused it.
“I’m ready for my quarters.” She needed relaxation, maybe take a nice hot scented bath and get prepared for the swing of things, anything to distract her from the past that never left her alone.
“As you wish, my lady,” he said, again with a British accent. The steward turned, led her across the deck, and down a stairway. She saw men and women following other stewards or each other. Once on board everyone began mingling, even flirting, judging by the tinkling female laughter and deep manly chuckles.
“There will be an announcement left under your door regarding tonight’s dinner seating arrangements. May you enjoy your day and make sure you take time for a relaxing massage. There’s always a masseuse available. Their extension is listed beside your phone. You’ll find your room key there as well.”
Lacinda followed him down a narrow hallway until he stopped in front of a door with an elegantly scrolled number 216.
“This is you. May I answer any questions before I go?”
Lacinda dug in her purse for a tip. Clueless on how much was appropriate and not wanting to give him anything. He got his gratuity when he copped a feel of her breasts.
