Sweet and Sassy Weddings FREE

Sometimes a story catches your imagination, and you can’t let it go. When I was a teenager, I saw a movie called The Naked Jungle. It’s about a tough and resourceful guy who has scratched out a plantation in the Amazon, and now he wanted a wife. Because he’d been isolated for years, he’s a virgin. He sends away for a mail-order bride, and when he finds out she’s divorced—and sexually experienced—he wants to pack her off home. But dire circumstances bring them together—and they end up in a very hot relationship.

The idea of a macho virgin hero who learns about lovemaking from a willing woman really appealed to me. I wanted to write a book with a similar theme. But how could I make that plot realistic in the twenty-first century? I decided to set it in the future and created a frontier planet that was settled by men and their sons. They haven’t seen a woman in fifteen years. Now a bride ship is coming, and the guys who have won wives in the lottery are eager but jittery.

This gave me a fun background for the story, which I called Nightfall. It’s in Sweet and Sassy Weddings, a collection featuring nine great authors. The locations and the circumstances are different in every story—with heroines ranging from a single mother to a widow to a poker-bet fiancée to a successful female attorney. But each of them celebrates love and commitment. The set is free from May 5 to 9.

To tell you a little bit more about Nightfall, the setting is a lot like a Western, and my hero is nervous about making love for the first time. As with the heroine of that old movie, his bride is experienced, but instead of resenting her knowledge, he’s eager to learn how a man and a woman please each other in bed. Yet there are a lot of bumps along the way as they try to work out their new relationship.

  1. Rebecca – I remember that movie only too well.It scared the heck out of me at the time, and still creeps me out. For those who haven’t seen the movie, the hero has built his plantation and it is now being invaded by a vicious army of devouring ants. He’s determined the ants aren’t going to get the best of him. Oh, boy! I’ll look forward to reading Nightfall and the other authors’ stories. Watch out for those ants!

  2. I bet it was fun to write about a sexual relationship featuring an experienced female and inexperienced man. So often, it’s the other way around in romances. What a nice change of pace!

    • Yes, it was fun reversion the roles. Unlike the hero in the movie, he’s all for getting into the learning experience.

  3. I’m certain I didn’t see the movie. That’s not a plot twist I would forget. So I’m looking forward to reading Nightfall to see how you worked your magic. Correction: to see how your heroine worked her magic. Can’t wait!

  4. One of the best virgin scenes ever was Jamie in Outlander, reversing the typical. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  5. What a treat! Just downloaded it. Funny–my BF and I share an account. He’s bound to take a look at my latest Kindle acquisition. Looking forward to his reaction.
