I read a couple of hers where it was like this woman-sharing club and the guys are all straight where the endgame was always the guy bringing in another guy, but I think the reason I like the bi guy setup is that two straight guys just sharing a woman is kind of rapey to me. Saturday night at the Sigma Chi house. Or sublimated homosexual desire where she is just a conduit between them. Better they just go ahead and have sex with one another. That way you know she's not just an excuse for them to get naked together.

Signs that a dude actually wrote this particular romance novel:

The female character self reports that she is 5'6, 140, and wears a size 16.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Ok so I have spent the last few days downloading a TON of these novels for my kindle (yay! THANK YOU! for all the great new authors!!), but gotta say I am a little surprised no one here has yet mentioned The Beauty Series by Anne Rice under the pseudonym of A. N. Roquelaure. (or is this one under the caption of ~dirty secret~ LOL)

Dear Authors:

Please don't name any of your characters "Hancock." It seriously interferes with my preferred search pattern.

I read Broken and liked it a lot...I'll look up her other work.

In Broken, I was really impressed with the way she wrote Adam. With just a few sketches, really, she sold me on the origin of the relationship and the reality of the relationship after he was paralyzed, and she didn't shy away from the latter.

So remember how I said when I read this stuff it never influences what I would like to *do* or anything about the kind of relationship I personally like/want?

That was before I read "Taking Care of Business" and the sequel "No Reservations." Oh, Bingo, I could be very into a nurturing trophy husband who feels very very good about completing items on a provided list in the *exact manner I want them executed*.

I have also noted an uptick in my level of interest in Ryan Gosling, so I'm not sure if I'm likin' Bingo because he makes me think of Ryan Gosling who over the past 2 weeks has seemingly been on a personal mission to exhibit the most attractive personality in the known universe or if I'm liking Ryan because I think he could pull off Bingo.

Anyway, y'all should read!

I did not. It's odd, my fascination with him stems mostly from his personality in interviews and my approval of his taste in women. He has always dated properly and says really lovely, intelligent things about the women he works with. And oh yeah, The Notebook. I am not made of stone, he is flawless in that and anybody who says different is wrong. And a Scorpio! Yay!

It is the strangest movie I've seen in a long time.
I still can't figure out why the hell I liked it.

He read favorite selections from the Hey Girl site in one interview. In another he pointed out that his strange accent was intentionally acquired because as a kid he thought actors had to sound like Brando, and now he can't get rid of it even though he'd like to since he is, after all, Canadian. On Letterman, he described - accurately - the caste system at work in trailer parks based upon his experience living in one with his mom in Orlando. Basically in every interview, he demonstrates that he has arsed himself to be smart and funny, even though his curb appeal is such that he need not bother. It's that above and beyond sort of thing that gets him such excellent performance ratings from me.

Oh, and you know, this:

Thing with The Notebook is that he does so many little things that are so, so hot - like the way he's got his hand in her hair, molding her head while he kisses her in that image - that he either has flawless instincts or, more likely, good instincts and a sense of what women really think is sexy and an understanding of how to do that, be that. You know the breathless forehead meeting thing during makeout breaks? Signifies a guy trying to get control of himself? How does he *know*? He has dozens of those and they are all on display in The Notebook. Where...how...these are our little secrets, but they're only secrets as long as no men bother to observe and discover them. Could he...possibly...could he be the one? Has he been reading ROMANCE NOVELS, where we articulate little things like that? Men aren't called upon to learn that language. When they display an understanding of it, it is devastating.

Okay
I want to tiptoe into some erotica - however, I do not want it to be vampires or such. AND I do not want historical romance - I want comtemporary - maybe a little dark - erotica.

Ideas? Authors?

Nothing really offends me - so ..........

Try going to the Ellora's Cave website and looking at all the different....choices presented, then decide what you mean by "dark."

Do look at the covers, because covers from EC and Loose Id are absolutely literal. Does it show 3 guys and 1 girl? It's about a MFMM menage that will end in a menarriage. Races depicted on cover are what you are getting. See no wolves, panthers, etc? You're safe, there are no weres.

It's like Ronseal Quick Drying Woodstain. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Ugliest effin' covers you will ever see.

Helpful little icons let you know what setups, pairings, kinks, etc are in each book.

When you figure out what draws your eye post and I will offer tailored recs.

For now, I can say I've been liking Megan Hart and that sounds kind of like what you are looking for, but you may be like NA and dislike first person narrative. Taking Care of Business isn't first person, though.

Ok. Haven't read this entire thread so don't know if I'm repeating.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Nancy Madore

Very nice erotica with a fairy tale kind of theme

dark - hmmmm I am not into the "oh life is so wonderful and I have everything and im perfect and the world is perfect and beautiful" kinda stuff. I will check out the website. I want something a little twisted, bad, with a story line thats not about a perfect person who finds another perfect person and bright lights shoot out their butts and all is well with the world. Maybe I am a little wacked...

The Sleeping Beauty Books made me throw up in my mouth a little.
I couldn't finish them.
I know there are some people into that but it just gave me the willies and to me they were not erotic.

Cognoscenti:

Who can tell me if any of the angel paranormals have referenced Rilke's Duino elegies, in their title or like intro quotes or anything? It's that whole "Who if I were to cry out would hear me among the angels' hierarchies blah blah blah every angel is terrifying" poem.
