I’m very excited! My latest book, Passion of Sleepy Hollow, releases today! It seems like it has been a while since my last book, but I’ve had three full length erotic romances released in one year, so it can’t have been that long :-} As anyone knows who has read one of my novels, my stories are inspired by the classics. Actually, a reader need only go to my website to discover that little tidbit. However, these books are more than romances inspired by the classics. They are erotic romances, a trait that is times forgotten until a reader gets to that first sex scene.
What I like about writing erotic romance is the natural progression from an emotional connection to a physical one that the reader can see and enjoy. I like the fact that this is achieved, not by the author using euphemisms or hinting at what is taking place, but by stating plainly what is happening physically while showing the reactions of the partners and the emotional significance all at the same time.
Whew, that is a tall order for an erotic romance writer! In fact, it’s enough to make a writer move to simply erotic fiction or simply romance. The reason I don’t do straight erotica is that it is the growing love between the characters that moves my sex scenes along, so I work hard to make these the best they can be.
And sometimes magic happens. In Passion of Sleepy Hollow there are a number of sex scenes, six or seven I think. I’m not completely sure because they happen organically either due to the plot or the relationship. I don’t plan them out ahead of time or know where they will take place or how they will occur. I leave that up to the characters. After all, it’s their love story and who am I to tell them how to consummate their love?
So yes. I write erotic romance inspired by the classics, or as one person told me “hot sex with a whole lotta story.” To me, that is the perfect combination. Enjoy :-)
Passion of Sleepy Hollow blurb
Recluse Braeden Van Brunt is not happy to be the Headless Horseman…until he meets Katrina Van Tassel, owner of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, whose allure bewitches him from the front desk into the bedroom. When he discovers Kat and the village of Sleepy Hollow are cursed to exist in the present day for only one weekend a year, he realizes the sacrifice he must make if he wants to keep her.
Katrina Van Tassel lives between slivers of time. She thought she was through grieving her betrothed’s death, but her dreams flare to life when his mirror image arrives, requesting a room. Drawn to Braeden, she is taken to more erotic heights of intimacy than she ever imagined, but she can’t be sure if her heart is with him or the love from her past.
Knowing he has to conquer both time and ghosts to keep the only woman he’s ever loved, Braeden must put the past to rest. But the dead may not rest in Sleepy Hollow.
Lexi Post spent years in higher education taking and teaching courses about classical literature. From the early American short story, Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Masque of the Red Death" to the 20th century American epic The Grapes of Wrath, she's read, studied, and taught great classic literature. But Lexi's first love is romance novels. In an effort to marry her two first loves, she started writing erotic romance inspired by the classics and found she loved it.
Lexi lives with her husband and cat in the Caribbean where gorgeous sunsets, warm weather, and driving on the left are the norm. She makes her own ice cream every weekend, loves bright colors, and you will never see her without a hat (unless she is incognito).
