Dive Right In
When I write, sometimes I have a title in mind, other times it comes later. With I Like It Wet, the title came first. There was a certain cadence to it, as well as a certain spice. I pencilled it in as a potential title for a shower sex story and put it to one side.
And then I met Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse at Eroticon. They handed me a card for Smut By The Sea and that was that – shower sex became beach sex. And since I had recently been to Scarborough and been utterly soaked during a walk down the seafront, I immediately had the idea for the ultimate water kink – being drenched by waves.
Talia was a great character to write. I read far too many heroines, even today, who have no purpose in life beyond finding a man and no sexuality until he awakens it. Talia, however, is a junior fashion designer who has plans for her future career and takes control of her own pleasure – something which drives my hero, Jay, absolutely wild. A fellow designer and a passionate man, Jay is used to being underestimated and misconstrued by those around him, so the discovery that Talia also has hidden depths is enough to ignite sparks between them.
And Scarborough is a great place to fall in love. I go there a lot and I love the place.
So next time I go, I may slip down to the beach and think about Talia and Jay frolicking in the waves. In the meantime, I hope everyone else enjoys reading all about it – and maybe discovering they also like it wet.
Light hearted, sexy fun by the sea is the theme of this erotic anthology, edited by Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse.
From the sun soaked bays of Australia to the rainy coastal towns of England, Smut by the Sea has it all. Whatever your interpretation of naughty seaside fun, there’s something nestling between the covers for you. Surfer boys, sea creatures, pirates and the fairground abound in this exciting collection of stories from erotica’s finest authors.
