Patricia Knight ~ Drop Dead Passionate Sex on TV – A Welcome Female Perspective

Hello everyone, thanks so much for stopping by – you’re in for an excellent treat this week; ) Patricia Knight is the featured guest author (welcome Ms. Knight) – and her newest release Hers to Claim, Book Four in the Verdantian Series is introduced below (be sure to take a peek).

First up, Patricia gives a little insight with a female perspective – take it away, Ms. Knight…

If you have not been watching Outlander on StarZ, and you enjoy a 'braw' male body, please do at some point in the future. This is one of the first mainstream TV producers to film a gorgeous, period story that is also a romance and show the sex from a woman's point of view. What do I mean by sex from the woman's point of view? It is not the stereotypical masterful male arousing an innocent, overwhelmed female and all dissolves into orgasmic bliss.

This wedding is forced by political necessity.  The hero is a virgin, and the heroine is an experienced woman who enjoys her sexuality with no excuses. The wedding night begins awkwardly, normal for two strangers forced together, and let’s not even mention the group of drunken Highlanders downstairs in witness to the “consummation.”

As the night progresses, a considerate bridegroom who can laugh at his ignorance and a bride who considers the groom physically and intellectually attractive, find surer footing. Most telling, the camera spends just as much time panning his brawny nude body as it does hers and her interest in his body and sex that satisfies her is not denigrated (the bridegroom even expresses his surprise that women could have an orgasm). I noticed this right off the bat, and I'm not the only one.

Here is the link to the Outlander “Wedding” on YouTube:

I tell ya ... it is dead sexy. I know my husband found it so, too. I mean ... I really KNOW ... and that's all I'm going to say. <smile>

If you have caught my tweets or checked my Pinterest boards, ya'll know how much I enjoy Cinemax's Strike Back. I love the characters, but I also love that it is prime beef cake. There are just as many sculptured nude torsos and buttocks of the hunky men as there are bouncing boobs and g-strings on the women. Several of the episodes miss the "full-monty" by a hair's width. I'm sure Sullivan Stapleton is weary of exposing his nude buttocks. <grin> I'm not.

Here is the link to Sullivan Stapleton and Phillip Winchester talking about their “nude” fight scenes and a clip of the scenes being discussed:

I have been waiting for this for years. Waiting to see films shot from the woman's point of view ... a woman who enjoys looking at a nude male—all of him, thank you very much—and is unapologetic about her enjoyment of the male sex. Outlander and Strike Back do it for me.

A prince from the Nyth Uchel mountains … a healer from the Oshtech desert …

Scornfully rejected by her desert lover and uncertain of her place in the world, Adonia traveled a perilous road to the fabled mountain-city of Nyth Uchel. She came to heal the sick and dying, but in the arms of highborn prince, Hel, Adonia found the answer to saving herself.

Descended from nobility, once great kings of Verdantia, Hel willingly bore the burden of his dying city and its people on his shoulders. Watching helplessly as a malingering evil attacked the very soil under his feet, he crushed his pride to summon help. He’d been staggered to discover the answer to saving his city and perhaps all Verdantia might lie behind a heavy fall of chocolate hair and shy brown eyes.

As their entire planet faces an encroaching black death, two seemingly disparate individuals forge a partnership of love and sacrifice that will alter their future forever. All of Verdantia will be tested.

Stand alone. Not a cliff-hanger. HEA 360 pages. M/F, Mild D/s themes, light spanking, and an over-sexed but sensitive prince with a hero complex.

Quotes from the book:

Steffania took a breath. Ram cut her off. “No. I don’t share you, Vixen.”

Fear of the unknown almost froze Adonia’s tongue, but she was the obvious answer. She could do this. The opportunity would never present itself again. “I’ll be your partner.”
He would have seduced her into the erotic world his particular carnality demanded and reveled in the passionate response he knew he could draw from her. She would submit to him gladly. The Goddess had created her for it. The woman gloried in serving.

Sadly, his world was not that world any longer. Brutal practicality stripped his relationships of any niceties and turned sex into another duty performed for those who looked to him for protection.

Steffania shook her head in mock sorrow. “I’ve heard it said people never grow up. They merely learn how to behave in front of others.” She leaned over and whispered loudly, “Ramsey has done neither.”

"It’s a delicious contradiction. He is never more wholly mine than when I am under his total control, in complete service to him.”


The small track Adonia rode resembled a game trail more than a byway of commerce. Her horse lunged up the steep, rock-strewn trail. In spite of the increasing difficulty in maneuvering the grade, the constant insults and rude comments volleyed between Ramsey and Hel lifted her foul mood with a growing sense of amusement. She heard the frequent cackle of Steffania’s laughter and her taunting jabs at both men.

“Loyal to you, DeHelios? Ha! Your retainers only stay because they are frozen solid to that block of ice you inhabit. I should relieve your people of the burden of gazing on your flea-infested, hairy face,” said Ram.

“Bring it on, dickless wonder. There aren’t any trees for you to fall out of to give you an advantage. Your wife inspires more fear in me. You aren’t half the man she is.”

“Oh, your death at my hand is all but assured, DeHelios. Only the knowledge it would be pointless stays my sword. The Hound of the Seven Hells would vomit you up as an indigestible hair ball, and I’d be back at square one.”

Adonia pulled her horse up and turned to face the two men. The absurdity of their exchanges had finally pushed her over the top.

At Hel’s irritated, “What?” hilarity welled up inside Adonia until she clutched at her belly and then her horse’s neck to remain seated. She finally abandoned the attempt and simply slid down and lay on her back on the rocky ground, convulsed with laughter. Ramsey a ‘dickless wonder’? Hel an ‘indigestible hairball’?

She registered Ramsey’s, “I don’t know. Something we said?”

She flopped her arm in the air to motion them on and was aware Hel and Ramsey continued past her. When she opened her eyes, she looked up at a mounted Steffania grinning down at her.

“They’re well-matched, don’t you think?” Steffania chuckled. “One might be fooled into thinking they didn’t like each other.”

Thomas Briar - Guest Post ~ Haute Couture Romance ~ Erotic Romance

Hey everyone, Thomas Briar is back with his newest release – an Erotic Romance short, Haute Couture Romance. I had the chance to read it and loved it (review is below). I’m so happy to introduce Thomas…here to share a little about the writing of this story – take it away, Mr. Briar; )

Hi there. My name is Thomas Briar. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by Kay Dee's Place to visit with me. I really appreciate it.

Today, I have fashionistas on my mind. In all honesty, I must admit that I've always admired the femininity they possess along with their impeccable fashion sense. I know others do as well. How can we not? Our brains are hardwired to appreciate beautiful things.

As a writer of erotica and erotic romance, I always strive to imbue my heroines with the physical and emotional characteristics of the fashionista. Just can't stop myself because it helps me to fall more deeply into love with them so I'll feel compelled to give them their happily ever after.

Um-hmmm, I really like giving my characters their happy endings. I suppose this is because although finding true love in real life can be really tough for people sometimes, it's never impossible. Not even under the worst of circumstances after one has given up all hope of it ever happening for them.

This is the case with Bethany, the heroine of Haute Couture Romance, my latest erotic romance short story to be published by Cobblestone Press.

To the casual observer it seems as if Bethany has it all. She's a beautiful former model, successful in business, and all around good girl. Except when she wasn't good, back before she gave up fashion modeling to move back to her hometown of Valdosta, Georgia to escape a terrible lapse in judgment.

The day Brian walks into her life she's not looking for love because she believes no one will ever love her. Two former boyfriends have already proved this to her in spades. Thus, she's determined not to experience that kind of heartbreak ever again.

But Brian's a lot different than those other guys. He knows all about overcoming past mistakes to become the person one wants to be. And he's not only going to accept Bethany as she is, he's also going to help her overcome that horrible mistake in her past.

Yes, without a doubt, I enjoyed writing this one. It has a little bit of intrigue, some sensual sex, and a love-affirming ending – all the elements I love in an erotic romance story.

Now, if you have the time and inclination please feel free to peruse the back cover blurb and excerpt at your leisure or simply click on the cover for more details. Also, please leave me a comment if you like and I'll certainly reply back.

Thanks again for stopping by and visiting with me!

Haute Couture Romance
Back Cover Blurb:
Bethany is a young woman who harbors a terrible secret. So, in spite of being beautiful and successful, she doesn’t date seriously because she knows there can never be a happily ever after for her…

On the day Brian walks into her life, he's so handsome and charming that she can't resist agreeing to go out with him when he asks. But she tells herself the date will only be for thrills and that nothing serious will ever come of it…

So just imagine Bethany's surprise when Brian shows her what true love really means…

“Welcome to Haute Couture.” Bethany greeted the handsome, thirtyish man as soon as the boutique’s front door closed behind him. “May I help you find something for the lovely lady in your life?”

The man, wearing a gray suit and standing six feet tall with short, wavy dark hair and flawless masculine features, grimaced. “You can try. She’s kind of hard to please.”

“Well, you’re in luck.” Bethany spread her arms to indicate the surrounding spring fashions. “We specialize in the finest women’s apparel and accessories to be found in the whole of Valdosta, Georgia. I’m certain we’ll be able to find something to suit her fancy.”

“I hope so. If not…well, it won’t be the first scolding I’ve taken from her.” The man gave up a charming smile and shrugged his broad shoulders as he turned toward the wall of shoes against the right side of the room. He weaved through the clothing racks to stand before the section hosting many different colors and variations of the peep-toed stiletto. He picked up a pink one with a five-inch heel.

“That is a very popular shoe.” Bethany walked over, transitioning into the hard sell. “It has very sleek lines and really enhances the beauty of a woman’s foot. It’s also very comfortable. And I like the open toe because it allows one to show off freshly painted toenails.”

“It does possess a certain amount of sexiness,” he admitted.

“Stilettos usually do.” Bethany sighed. “I like this particular shoe so well that I’ve already bought it in red, and now they’ve sent the pink one this week. But, as you probably already know, a young woman can never have too many shoes. I’ve got my eye on a new skirt over there as well. This year the spring colors are so vibrant and fun that I can’t resist them.”

“Ah, you’re a fashionista.” The man smiled in appreciation. “I’ve always admired the way fashionistas dress. May I take a good look at you?”

“Sure,” Bethany answered. Dressing to be seen by others was a big part of her livelihood. And she really respected his asking, instead of just leering at her as though it was his inalienable right. Yes, having reached twenty-five years of age and having come into her own as a successful businesswoman, she appreciated the good manners of true gentlemen. Thus, she placed a hand on her hip to strike a subtle, sexy pose.

The man turned all his attention on her for the first time. His brilliant blue eyes searched her slender face and turquoise eyes and then lingered on the way she’d fashioned her blonde hair in an elegant up-style to show off diamond earrings.

Bethany stared back boldly under the scrutiny. Although she couldn’t categorize this examination on his part as being sexual in the least, a shiver of sexual attraction traced its way up the inside of her thighs.

Book Review – Haute Couture Romance

Author: Thomas Briar

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance Short Story

First Line: “Welcome to Haute Couture,” Bethany greeted the handsome, thirtyish man as soon as the boutique’s front door closed behind him.

Bethany, a fashionista and owner of the Haute Couture woman’s clothing store, has a secret that left her high and dry in the romance relationship department.

Brian, a financial wizard, has his heart set on finding the perfect woman to love for life. Are there any left in the world?

Both have dealt with bitter disappointment until they happen to meet, and their worlds collide, giving them…hope, even with the skeletons stalking Bethany’s closet.

I so enjoy the story-stars of Mr. Briar’s erotic romance tales. He builds heroes every woman swoons over and heroines tattooed with a naughty side that men find fascinating…in this case, enough to pursue against the odds: )

Mr. Briar’s tales, besides being sensually erotic, always pack a twist that deepens the overall characters and story, finishing with a most satisfactory ending…like this one: ) It’s a quick fix if you’re wanting a perfect short love story that leaves you with a smile. Yum.
