A Good Ending to the Tale or an Indication of Commitment

The first erotic romance novel I wrote was WERE SHE BELONGS. I decided to take a chance and write this book to see if I could "break into" the erotic romance writing scene. This was a big change up over the mainstream writing that I do so believe it or not it was challenging. I'm not just talking about using such words as cock, pussy and cunt. I'm talking about trying to maintain emotion, desire and authenticity of character development. It's not just about a lot of wild sex. It is about forming such a deep and emotional connection that all involved want to get as close as humanly possible to each other. I was hoping to not be described as writing 'porn'. Not that there is anything wrong with porn, but I want to create great characters, falling into lust or love as deep and natural as possible without limitations. I think it is fair to say that werewolves are rather sexual creatures. The idea that they can sense their mate's emotions as well as their sexual desire is amazing. So when I began writing FOR THE LOVE OF ANNA, I thought why can't three strong, alpha human males be able to sense their mate's needs, her desires and her fears and help her along the way?


Fiction is a wonderful thing. It allows a writer to create a world where multiple partners can be seen as not only acceptable but natural. I feel that there should be a commitment in these multi partner relationships. As readers do you prefer when a erotic romance story ends with a commitment of marriage or is it okay when an author ends a story with no indication of commitment and just an ending to the tale?

Hi Dixie, commitment between my heroine and heroes is essential to me, and I want in the books I read. I don't care if it ends in terms of marriage, but that they are truly committed to one another as deep soul level.

Okay, corrected version ~ it's too damn hot...

Exactly Savanna,I think a great writer is able to create awesome characters with a deep connection and bond that lasts in the mind's of their readers long after the last page has turned.

P.S. It is so damn hot here (105) that my internet keeps shutting down. Everyone has their AC on. Stay cool!

I like a commitment in the stories I read - married is good - pregnant is even better. Just my preference!

Thanks for the great blog post, Dixie. I like the whole fairytale, from the proposal all the way through the wedding. A baby? Even better:)

I have to agree with Savanna, it doesnt have to end in marriage but I want my story to have a "happy ending" and for me that has to be a commitment. If I read a story and it doesnt end with some sort of commitment (they walk away from each other) then I usually avoid that author in the future...
