Simply Sexy Stories Welcomes W. Lynn Chantale!

NG: I’m welcoming W Lynn Chantale on Simply Sexy Stories! Hi, W Lynn!

WLC: Hi Nichelle, thanks for having me here today.

NG: My pleasure! Let’s start with some W Lynn Chantale trivia questions!

WLC: *claps hands* I love trivia questions.

NG: What’s your favorite time of day?

WLC: Morning.

NG: Yikes! Really? Wow. What’s your favorite place to write?

WLC: At the dining room table.

NG: What’s your favorite summer drink?

WLC: This is tough, because I drink a lot of water, but to switch it up a bit I alternate between Coca-Cola and lemonade.

NG: What’s your favorite thing about summer?

WLC: Fresh produce. There's something about walking into a farmer's market and the aroma of sweet peaches, sugary watermelon, fresh herbs just wafts through the air. I love that smell.

NG: too! What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love?

WLC: I walked about a mile in the middle of a blizzard to get black roses for a Valentine's gift for my boyfriend.

NG: Impressive and very romantic, W Lynn! What’s the wildest place a story idea has struck you?

WLC: Does church count?

NG: Absolutely! ;-) What are you reading right now?

WLC: I'm between books at the moment, having read everything on the way down and looking for something to read. I'm open to suggestions.

NG: I've got some for you! We'll discuss later. Do you have an e-reader? If so, tell me whether it was easy or difficult to adjust to reading digital books. Do you prefer paperbacks?

WLC: I still have paperbacks, but I love my Kindle. The hardest thing for me to remember is not to fold the corner of the page. Doing that is not necessary on an e-reader since it remembers the last page read.

NG: You’ve been captured and your captor tells you to choose either your MP3 player or your e-reader...which one would you choose?

WLC: That's a hard one. I suppose I could always sing if I brought my e-reader.

NG: What do you think is the biggest misconception about females writing in this genre?

WLC: I think one is we live what we write. Not necessarily so, it could just be well researched.

NG: What genre(s) do you write and why?

WLC: I write erotic, romantic suspense and Christian/Inspirational and contemporary romance. As for why, I enjoy writing in those areas and before I wrote romance I wrote mysteries.

NG: Why are you drawn to writing romance?

WLC: Some may say this is arrogant or what have you, but after reading my gazillionth Harlequin novel I knew I could do better. I was tired of reading characters especially the heroines who were weak and naive, or pampered princesses. Gawd, that drove me crazy, or reading a book set in the backwoods of a rolling ranch in some obscure part of the country.

NG: LOL! Do the people in your life know about your writing? Are they supportive?

WLC: Yes and they are some of the most supportive people. I wouldn't be where I am without them.

NG: What advice would you give to inspiring authors interested in penning successful erotic romances?

WLC: Aside from keep writing? Write what you like. Just because something is trendy or now stay true to you. I admit I like the classic plots, but find a new twist. Think of a classic plot line like a little black dress and how you dress it up with heels or flats, gold or silver. belt or no belt to give it different look, those classic plot lines are the same way. Dress it up and flaunt your stuff!

NG: Great advice! Okay, let's talk about your work. Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantster?

WLC: I think I'm a bit of both. Most of the time I have an idea of where I'd like things to go, but other times having an outline helps steer me.

NG: How many hours a day do you try to commit to your manuscript?

WLC: I try to commit at least 2, but there are times I do write all day.

NG: What’s your biggest distraction from focusing on your writing?

WLC: Family. I enjoy my husband and children and they can be very entertaining.

NG: What are you working on for 2012?

WLC: That's a good question. I've a couple of erotic romantic suspenses I'm trying to finish up so I can submit them. A couple of books I plan to self-publish and a release this month on July 27th.

NG: W Lynn is here today to her latest release The Pick-Up Wife. What's this tale all about about?

WLC: The Pick-Up Wife is a story of second chances. Of a husband who allowed ambition to tear apart his marriage and what happens when he tries to mend a bridge he so thoughtlessly burned.

NG: What inspired you to pen this story?

WLC: This was an oldie sitting half on my hard drive and half in long hand. I wanted to do a secret baby thing. (classic plot line) My publisher did and in-house call for short stories with a them of broken hearts where the couple had to come together. I pitched my story, tweaking the plot to match the theme and the rest is history.

NG: Very cool! Give me three reasons readers will love The Pick-Up Wife.

WLC: It's romantic, a little bit funny, and I think has quite a bit of heart.

NG: sounds perfectly delightful! What's the one thing readers can always count on when picking up one of your books?

WLC: A sensual read. I hope that comes across in this story.

NG: Thank you so much for coming on Simply Sexy Stories, W Lynn, best wishes for all your endeavors in 2012!

WLC: Thank you so much for inviting me here today.

Blurb: Leo Shepard has few regrets, but leaving his wife Symmone to pursue his career was a catastrophic mistake. Now that he’s achieved his every dream and is about to make partner at Greene and Banks Architects, he lacks one thing, a wife. But Leo doesn’t want just any wife, he wants the woman he left behind.

From the moment she laid eyes on Leo, Symmone knew she would have her happily ever after. The last thing she expected was a divorce and a broken heart. Devastated by the end of her marriage, she has no choice but to quit school and pick up the pieces of her life.

Working two jobs to support herself and her children, Symmone has little room in her life for romance and even less for her pulsating attraction to her ex-husband. When Leo strolls into the cafe where she works, bent on reconciliation, the chemistry between them is more powerful than ever. Yet she won't give in to his soft words and expensive gifts. More than just her heart is at stake, her children are, as well.

Caution! Super Sexy Excerpt Below:
She was warm and snug for the first time in years. Strong arms tightened around her as she settled deeper into the security of the embrace. Lips, moist and soft, nibbled the hollow of her shoulder, while a solid erection bounced against her butt.

A sigh left her lips. If she was dreaming, she didn’t want to wake up. Familiar hands traveled down her body and slid beneath the cotton of her shirt. She arched into the palms cupping her breasts. One hand delved lower, while the other remained to tease the soft globe.

She shifted, throwing her leg over a powerful thigh to give the fingers brushing her mound better access to her aching folds. She held her breath as those digits slipped between her legs and slid inside her heat.

Her hips jerked at the welcome invasion and she moaned. She turned her head until her lips touched his, demanding more, yielding everything. When he flicked his thumb against the button of nerves her entire body clenched.

Gone was the languid lover. Intimacy had been lacking in her life for far too long and she needed the fire of this man. With trembling hands she tugged at Leo’s shirt. She had to feel his skin against hers. Somehow, between desperate kisses, he managed to disrobe, leaving her in his borrowed top.

Early morning light fell across his features, stark with unrestrained passion. She lifted a hand and traced his lips. He grabbed her hand and planted a kiss in the center of her palm.

He traced the triangle of skin at the opening of the shirt before he slipped each button from its mooring. The garment fell away, exposing her skin to the cool air. Her nipples tightened further under his scrutiny. She reached up and drew him down for a kiss. He obliged her mouth before moving to her chin, the hollow of her throat, and the valley of her breasts. Attention was laved on each puckered peak before he moved down her body, trailing kisses against her heated flesh.

She clutched the sheet in her hands as his tongue swirled against her stomach, teasing the raised edge of a scar, before traversing lower. A moan eased past her lips as his thumbs parted her labia. Air skittered across her exposed sex. When his tongue licked her from top to bottom she sobbed in pleasure.

He wedged his shoulders between her legs, exposing her even further to his oral exploration. When she tried to wiggle away from his marauding mouth he grasped her buttocks and hauled her closer.

He took his time alternating between long slow licks to rapid flicks of his tongue, which left her moaning and sighing his name. Her hips thrust toward his questing mouth while pleasure swamped her. Flames flickered and sizzled through her veins as he kept her focused on what he was doing. He slid two fingers into her channel, stretching her while he teased her clit with his tongue. She relished the tight sensation but craved more. His fingers moved. In and out. In and out, urging her closer, stoking her passion until she burned for him. She rode his hand and prayed this sweet torture wouldn’t end. He withdrew his fingers only to spear deep, lapping at her cream.

She didn’t want his loving to end, so exquisite was the pleasure he offered. Once more he sealed his mouth to her delicate flower, his tongue delving deep. Her hips bucked, riding the wave of ecstasy he provoked.

Tension coiled tighter, her belly bunching under his tender ministrations. Everything centered on the delight of his lips and mouth. Each rasp of his tongue brought her closer and closer, until her world narrowed. So close.

She whimpered as he eased the assault on her clit to place feather light kisses around the area. When he pulled his mouth from her entirely she shrieked a protest.
