Louisa Masters Heats Up "Inter-Office Relations"



I want to introduce a new friend to Seven Sexy Scribes Louisa Masters! Louisa writes spicy and hot erotic-romance and I know you all love that, so I’m going to allow Louisa to speak for herself…

My Sex Life—Fabulous or Fantasy?

My first erotic romance was released in December 2011, and numbers two and three are due out this summer. So I haven't been in the market for that long. Yet already, I have been subjected innumerable times to "the question".

"How do you come up with your ideas?" Wink, wink. "Your sex life must be amazing."

Seriously? My favourite answer—preferably right after they've taken a sip from their drink—is "Actually, I'm a virgin."

It seems ridiculous for people to assume I have no imagination simply because I write erotic romance. Do people ask Stephen King if his life is a nightmare of strange and terrifying occurrences?

Consider this: Inter-Office Relations, currently available from The Wild Rose Press, kicks off with Jeannie propositioning her office crush, Tim. They get it on in the conference room, and several other interesting places. Did I ever do that? No. Did I want to? Definitely. Tim is loosely based on a guy I had a crush on when I worked in the corporate world.


One Night in a Bar, due June 25th from Total-E-Bound, is about Karen, who goes to a bar she normally wouldn't frequent after finding her boyfriend in bed with two other men. She dances with a sexy stranger and bangs him in the alley behind the bar. Did I ever do that? No. Did I want to? Only in my dreams. In reality, the idea scares the crap out of me J

Diving In Deep, part of The Wild Rose Press's Boys of Summer series and due out—you guessed it—later this summer, is a m/m/m story about Cameron, who takes time off from his life to reinvent himself and meets Jake and Troy, the sexy duo running a reef diving company. There's no way in hell this one could be based on my sex life—I don't have the requisite body parts.

Writing erotic romance means that I'm open to more than just the missionary position (although, if done right, missionary can be a real good time). It means I'm not afraid to go into adult toy stores, and that I'll admit to owning a vibrator—several, actually. It does not mean that I spend my days in a sex swing experimenting with toys while practicing positions from the Kama Sutra. Although, that does sound fun...

Erotic writers of the world, what other misconceptions have you been subjected to?

Thank you Louisa for being our guest. I love your beautiful book covers. Next time you visit please post a picture of Tim! I think we’d all enjoy seeing him.

  1. Gosh I don't even know where to start with the misconceptions...
    I think the biggest one is, some people think writing erotic material is so easy and so low. Not true.

  2. Thanks for inviting me, oh sexy ones! Kat, one of my favorite misconceptions is that we use "throbbing member" in every scene!

    1. LOL let's make that a "Turgid throbbing member of steel" preferably mentioned at the top of every paragraph lest the reader forget just how thick, intimidating and so very turgid our hero is. : )

  3. Love your comments Louisa. I got the same kind of thing when friend read the sex scenes in my rural romance. They actually had the nerve to ask my husband, poor baby if I do that to him. He wishes, snigger. I do show him my juicy bits though (in my manuscripts - ahem) just to get his take on them. Every writer has to have a good imagination, erotic writer or not. Well said.

    1. Hello Ann. You sound like a tease! You only read your husband the saucy, naughty juicy bits while denying him release...? What a cruel Mistress you must be. Lol
      I feel another book coming on!

  5. Ann, you should tell your husband to practice his smug, knowing smirk - worth a thousand words!
    Tina, I absolutely adore this cover. Angela Anderson did it, and she's a genius!

  6. Hi Louisa, such a fun post! Yes, we erotic authors have great imaginations. Writing the fantasy is fun, as is pretending you're part of it. In fantasy, we can make everything turn out the way we like. In real life, not so much. Congratulations on your release!

    1. Hi Nona,

  7. Hey, Louisa, another virgin erotica writer here. All you need is a good imagination, a working knowledge of anatomy, a lack of literary inhibition, and a general assumption that people enjoy these things. :)

    And the ability to write a good sex scene, of course. Even people much more experienced in real life have trouble with that.

    1. Hi Cersie! I think a navy blue thong & garter set would be less sever at the office. The good thing is ladies wouldn't be trapped at their desks. Everyone would be finding reasons for them to stand and walk around.
