Today we have science fiction romance author Nico Rosso here to talk a little about his newest release, The Limit of Desire. Take it away Nico!
What if you want it, you really want it and your partner wants it, too, but there’s just no way it’s going to happen? You’re in the middle seats of an airplane. You’re thousands of miles apart with only a phone line or Skype to connect you. You’re in a crowded restaurant.
Instead of letting frustration kill the mood, use the delay to heighten the gratification. That’s what Captain Jessa Tok and Sergeant Ryder Hiltop have to do. They’re stuck behind enemy lines when they discover how deep their need for each other is in my sci-fi romance, THE LIMIT OF DESIRE. There isn’t a time or place during the fight for them to strip off their body armor, so they do the next best thing. They build their anticipation by talking about all the possibilities. It’s like aural sex, the power of suggestion. If you want the steamy details on what they’re planning to do with each other once they’re safely away from the battlefield, you’re just going to have to read the story.
But even if we’re not stuck in the trenches of the Limit War, we can use the same technique to spice up our own lives. No one’s listening in that crowded restaurant, so tell your partner what you’re planning with them later. It would be scandalous if anyone overheard and that just adds to the fun. (If you ever see me and my wife, romance author Zoë Archer, out to dinner, it might look like we’re discussing the appetizer, but we’re really talking dessert. *wink*)
And if the sexy talk doesn’t come naturally, try working from a script. Romance novels are a great place to find characters and dialogue to set the mood. You could even listen to a book on tape, like Zoë’s COLLISION COURSE By delaying the action, the mind and body have time to rev up, get tantalized.
So what do you say? Would you leave a sexy little note in a coat pocket? Make a steamy suggestion just before the waiter arrives? Leave a comment with some of the ways you might whet the appetite when it’s impossible to get out of your clothes. I’ll pick a comment at random to win a copy of THE LIMIT OF DESIRE.
