The Historical romances that we grew up watching our mothers, aunts, and grandmother’s read, are changing. Yes, they were bodice rippers, and yes, they were filled with sexual tension to the ninth degree, but they were also closed door romances. I think over the years, woman have desired to be more bold with their reading choices, and why not? Some of us lead very mundane lives, and others would do anything to escape the craziness that everyday life offers.
When I started writing a few years back, I knew very little historical romance writers that pushed the borders, until the genre melded with erotic romance. Believe me, I’m not one to complain, in fact, this post is in homage to a few fantastic women. Lila DiPasqua being one of them, as well as Maggie Robinson, and Delilah Marvelle. I pushed some boundaries myself with my Pleasure Garden Follies series as well. The third and final book Her Deviant Lord, went places I hadn’t expected. Here’s a glimpse of what I mean:
He approached to find the tanned young man licking her cunt and another disrobing behind her. She held onto a braided cord, which she had wrapped around the young man’s neck, as if he were an animal.
“Sit, mi amore. You have much to learn, but first I want you to watch.”
The other man came up from behind and started caressing her tits. They were large and heavy, yet beautiful. She kissed him and told him she is ready. Then, she dropped her robe and walked over to her bed.
The young man on the cord knelt before her, and she dropped onto all fours. She wrapped her lips around the boy’s meager cock, while the other one stroked himself before dipping his penis into her juices from behind. This one reached for a silk scarf and first covered her eyes.
Bastian was aroused, yet did not understand how far she planned to take things. He released his own cock from his breeches and began to stroke, slow but steady. From behind, the young man pumped into Donatella hard and fast before withdrawing. This time, he entered her posterior, and she moaned. The boy on the cord now reaches for her hair and wraps it around his hand. He, too, pumps fast and furiously. She takes him all the way. Bastian found himself completely in awe of this display and close to release. Slowing his strokes, he rolled and kneaded his balls as he watched the men climax with a roar.
Not long after, Donatella found her own release with an explosive cry and collapsed onto the bed. The servant removed the scarf from her eyes, and she nodded to the boy whom she had serviced. “You will take care of his needs now. Both of you, in fact. I hope you do not mind, Bastian? In order for you to learn, you have to know how it feels.” Have you ever taken a chance on a book that pushed boundaries?
