This week Clair Brett asked, What do you find most difficult about writing what you write? It could have to do with certain scenes, plotting, dialogue, whatever trips you up. How do you approach those things?
The short answer is SEX!
I find sex scenes torturously hard to write. I overcome the issue by slogging through and after the book is finished I go back and fix them. However, even the fixing is very tough.
Why is it so difficult? Because it’s intimate and personal to the characters and that can be hard to share in a way that brings across those deep emotions connected with love making.
You might ask, why not write sweet and leave the sex off the page? When I write a book, I tell you every intimate detail about the life and love of the characters. For me, it seems wrong to close the door at the bedroom.
So I’ll keep on pushing though the tough parts and keeping it real. 😉

An old feud renewed. A new scandal threatens. An unexpected romance.
Dorothea Hindley came to London for one reason: to help launch her cousin into society. The task would be easier if Dorothea’s aunt hadn’t revived a long-standing feud which could make her family a laughingstock. Her best hope to prevent that comes from Martin Drayton, Viscount Abernathy, son of her aunt’s nemesis.
Martin can’t afford the distraction of his mother’s social maneuvering. With King George mad at Windsor Castle and Parliament wrangling over the Regency Bill, he is busy forwarding the Prince of Wales’ cause. Enlisting Dorothea to help to cool the flames of the feud seems not only sensible, but mutually beneficial.
Working together sets in motion an undeniable attraction—and a scandal neither they can ill-afford. Caught in a marriage of convenience, can the accidental viscountess and her unexpected husband get their families to stop feuding long enough to save both the monarchy and their love?
