Seduction begins in the...

For those of you who don't read post titles, here it is again :)

Fill in this sentence: Seduction begins in the...

And yes, I know the proper way to say it is "finish this sentence" or "complete this sentence", but that takes me back to grade school and I don't want to go there so why should I take you?

So. Did you come up with your full sentence?

Seduction begins in the--

How many of you said brain?

iZombie aside (Roxy keeps talking about it. I haven't seen any zombie shows because I think I'm a reincarnated druid and I suspect I was ritually brained so the idea of eating 'em just doesn't go for me...someone give me a rundown on iZombies?), the brain is where we get ideas. And I don't know about you, but some of my most fun times started with an idea.

Some of my most fun times started with a brewery tour too, but that's off topic.

I started thinking about this when Amy K wrote this post on right brain/left brain. Which are you? Take the quickie quiz here.

We can logically plan a seduction with our left brain. Or creatively come up with a new position with the right.

And have you seen those pictures of a brain on orgasm? According to Nan Wise in this ABC News article, “Secondary to an epileptic seizure, there’s no bigger brain networking event.”

Here's a picture. (I don't recommend searching for "Brain on Orgasm" because  it comes up with a lot of pics that are less scientific than this. What?? You looked?!? See. What'd I tell you?)

So what about you? Where does seduction begin?


Biting Love Nibbles (Biting Love Short Bites collection)

Sparkling, sassy, sinfully sexy. Indulge your yen for action-packed vampire romance with these short bites.

Biting Holiday Honeymoons
That special night with their master vampires is interrupted by Dracula and Santa Vamp. Biting Halloween—Elena and Bo's honeymoon in the Dells is derailed when they get run off the road by a vampire. They chase him, only to find out Dracula—the real Dracula—is on the loose. Introduces Glynn Rhys-Jenkins from Biting Oz. Biting Christmas—Nixie and Julian slide into a hot-tub honeymoon, but things turn nasty when Santa Vamp and Mrs. Claus show up. Warning: These titles contain vampires. Fighting, biting, loving vampires. And adult couples trying to have sexy times on their wedding nights. Explicit language. Slang guide included.
Oz Bites
Vampires and sex and flamingos oh my! Punk musician Nixie Emerson is now married to her master vampire and life is grand. Until the mayor “voluntells” her to assemble a pit orchestra for Oz, Wonderful Oz, a new Broadway-caliber musical. Problem—she has no budget. Add in a vampire turf war and a pregnancy that makes finding the right sexual position a challenge and running from rogue vampires impossible, and she’s getting overwhelmed. As a rebel who thrives on creative solos, she’s getting zilch for solo time. Then someone blabs there’s no pay and her musicians back out. Worse, whoever’s stealing secrets isn’t just stealing Nixie’s. Warning: Contains wild sex, explicit violence, and a frazzled punk heroine. Or is that explicit sex, wild violence, and a frazzled lawyer vampire? What the heck. There’s sex, swearing, fighting and smiles.
Murder at Chipmunk Lake
Nixie's lost her mojo! Nixie Emerson, punk rock musician and first-time mom-to-be, has a stalker. Her band Guns and Polkas has gone national after their big stage debut, but the price of fame is the stalker trying to scare her into leaving the band. Her husband, master vampire Julian, whisks Nixie away to the Wisconsin north woods—where they meet the stalker on the pier of their cabin and he again threatens Nixie. Julian punches him out and the couple walks away thinking the problem is over. But when the next evening the stalker is found dead, they find out the trouble is only starting. Warning: contains a cranky pregnant lady trying to control her swearing, a master vampire appeasing his wife with food and creative sex, murder, mayhem and several arguments over what to name the baby.
Biting Serendipity
Best April Fools joke ever—falling in love. Serendipity “Sera” Braun hoists beer steins at her tavern job, where a Viking bouncer is bedsheets waiting to get sweaty. But Thor only scowls at her. Warning: A terribly lonely vampire, a conflicted schoolmarm with a caged wild side, nosy roommates and the female version of a bromance, not to mention scorching sex, swearing with the **** filled in, a whole town full of busybodies—and the best April Fools joke ever.

These stories contain material intended for mature audiences. Reader discretion advised.
