HI RJ Blogging Community!
Amanda McIntyre coming at you from a very cool and gray day in Iowa.
Fall has always been one of my favorite times and this year is particularly special as it is the debut of my erotic historical, DIARY OF COZETTE (Harlequin Spice) Set during the white slave trade era of London (mid-late 1800s) it follows the journey of a young woman, bright, curious and resilient from poverty to a women of wealth. The road is not a snmoothone, but every experience, evey person she meets and loves or thinks that she loves, creates the woman that she (and the reader also) sees herself becoming. It was an interesting journey for me as a writer. Much research went into this book, as well as having the freedom of so many fascintaing characters. Just this week I recieved my authors copies and I opened the book and began to read it. Well over a year in the writing, editing and publishing process, it was like reading someone elses book! Which was great! I actually found myself enjoying it! I hope you will too.
In a conversation with a friend of mine today however and, understanding everyone is entitled to their preference, or more than one for that matter.
I would love to ask this question: Do you think that torrid love scenes are realistic or unrealistic, insofar as portraying romance?
I’ll check back to see what you all have to say! Meantime, I hope you will consider picking up a copy of Diary of Cozette and let me know what you think!

True, I am but a mere maidservant from a great house, snatched from a wretched existence of poverty and desperation to serve noblemen of wealth and privilege.
While I am indeed of lowly rank, I am also a young woman who allowed herself to sample life’s greatest pleasures in the hands of these titled men. My tales overflow in this journal, penning my journey to becoming a woman of power of the most base, yet stimulating, breed.
Unmarried and twenty, yet betrothed to no man, I would be considered a spinster by most, yet this is of my own ardent intention. With my unabashed lushness and wisdom regarding a man’s most vehement cravings, I am not lacking for suitors or proposals given in the heat of passion. No, I have yet to meet the man who will challenge me, satisfy me in all ways, not only of the flesh.
For where passion and desire are fleeting, my heart continues to beat.…
