Here’s Jenny Lyn, telling us about her story, Shine, from Smut Alfresco. Warning: it contains a hunky sheriff. *fans self*
The venue I finally chose for my sexy outdoors shenanigans in SHINE was not the first location I considered. My first idea was on the deck of a boat, and the second, a rooftop. For the rooftop idea, I’d even gone so far as to research Bosun’s chairs. If you don’t know what that is, they’re used to do work on the side of a building or on a boat’s riggings, neither of which are for me, thank you very much. I played around with both story settings, but never really got a strong feel for the characters. No connection to them at all. Then one night I watched an episode of Moonshiners and inspiration struck.
I absolutely adore being born and raised in the south. From the deep-seated traditions passed down through generations, to the sweltering temperatures and hummingbird-sized mosquitos. I’ve wanted to write an erotic piece that featured the south for some time. Now, making one of my characters a moonshine runner might not sound too flattering, but anyone who’s actually from the south will tell you that’s not a slight. Yes, it’s illegal to run moonshine, but for a lot of southern families it’s also part of their heritage. My grandfather happened to brew “white lightning” for his own personal consumption back in the day.
I also wanted to explore the dichotomy of being drawn to someone on the opposite side of the law from which you stood. Of being faced with a choice on what you would do when cornered, or if you were pressed to make a decision on whether to close your eyes or draw a line in the sand. It’s not always black and white. When emotions get involved, things tend to turn gray.
As far the location for the sexy times, who doesn’t want to cool off on a sweltering summer day? A dip in a natural spring will certainly do the trick. Water so cold it steals your breath, then warm sunshine to dry you off afterward. After spending every summer of my teens at a local spring a bike ride away from my house, I can attest to how refreshing and fun it can be.
A secluded oasis, a hot girl in a bikini, and a hunky sheriff who’s not afraid to use his handcuffs… Have I made you thirsty for more? I hope so.
