Sex and Music
When I write, I need to have music, especially when writing Sex Scenes.
What is it about music that makes sex so sexy? Is it the thump of the base or the drums that makes the every thrust more erotic? More heightened? More orgasmic? What about the saxophone? Now that’s one sexy instrument that makes having sex so…..hhmmmm……yummily incredible….
Sex and rock and roll often go together, but so does sex and jazz – fusion like Soul Ballet or Four Play. It’s the languid notes that feels like silk upon skin, that raises the blood and heats it.
That makes you want to raise your hips to your lover’s every thrust.
What about you, what kind of music or instrument or both gets you in the mood? And I’m not talking about the rabbit.
I have three books out now for your reading pleasure. Love in Her Dreams, a contemporary romance set in Edinburgh; and, the two books of my paranormal romance, The Cynn Cruor Bloodline. Rapture at Midnight and Forever at Midnight. Here is an excerpt from Forever at Midnight. I hope you enjoy it.
Soon, Roarke ended the kiss. Deanna gloried at the pleasure she felt when gold flecks materialized against his pupils. She touched the sides of his eyes.
“I missed seeing those,” she whispered before cupping his face. He turned to kiss her palm. She sighed. “If only for tonight, make love to me again, Roarke. Make love to me so I can forget.”
She saw emotion flit through his eyes before it was gone. Her heart was in her throat, afraid he would refuse. Then his head bent down.
He kissed her again, but this time it was soft and tender, even while his hand was wreaking havoc with her body. Her clit throbbed when he rolled her hardened nipples with his thumb and forefinger before palming her globes lovingly. She closed her eyes, giving in to the moment, her breath coming out in moans and gasps. Then her mouth opened in a silent cry, feeling his tongue flick and suck on her breasts again. She lost all coherent thought, holding on to his shoulders. Lust thundered through her, lighting her up like a fireball.
Roarke scooped her up and walked through the French doors and into the warmth of the loft. With her face against his neck, she inhaled deeply before flicking her tongue and sucking on the pulse at the base of his throat.
“Where?” he growled, his desire unsuppressed.
Mutely, Deanna pointed to the stairs which led to her bedroom. Instead of using the stairs, Roarke catapulted them to the open room’s landing with one jump.
There wouldn’t be any recriminations tonight. This moment would be for knowing each other’s bodies again. To make up for all the lost time.
Isobelle Cate is a woman who wears different masks. Mother-writer, wife-professional, scholar-novelist. Currently living in Manchester, she has been drawn to the little known, the secret stories, about the people and the nations: the English, the Irish, the Scots, the Welsh, and those who are now part of these nations whatever their origins. Her vision and passion are fuelled by her interest and background in history and paradoxically, shaped by growing up in a clan steeped in lore, loyalty, and legend.
Isobelle is intrigued by forces that simmer beneath the surface of these cultures, the hidden passions, unsaid desires, and yearnings unfulfilled.
