Embracing Erotica Without Shame

Posted on October 4th, by C.L. Parker in Uncategorized. 14 comments

When
I first started writing the Million Dollar Duet, it was actually an outlet for all the
juicy erotic goodness that the highly inappropriate part of my brain kept
replaying while I was working on my first project, the Supernova Saga. It was
the scene at the end of A MILLION DIRTY SECRETS’s chapter 14 and into chapter
15 that started it all. Those highly inappropriate, albeit emotionally charged,
scenes simply wouldn’t fit the Saga’s storyline. Plus I could just see my
mother shaking her head with that look on her face – the one that says without
words how embarrassed she is that her darling baby girl (also the mother of
two, not by immaculate conception)
has even had sex, and how appalled she would be that I advertised my sexuality
to the rest of the world under the “guise” of two fictional characters.

I
am not Lanie Talbot nor have I ever had the extreme pleasure of finding myself
in precarious positions with Noah Crawford, but I’m keeping hope alive.

I’d
like to think there’s a little of Lanie in me, though. Particularly, that
quirky inner voice that makes me giggle to myself over something silly. Like
Lanie, I also tend to make the best of a serious situation through the magic of
laughter. After all, … Read More »


The Mechanics of Super Cooch

Posted on September 27th, by C.L. Parker in Uncategorized. 1 Comment

Ah, Double Agent Coochie . . . that shameless hussy. While some
may find her silly, immature, and unnecessary, she does serve a purpose to the
story dynamic. Multiple purposes, in fact.

First, she’s the comic relief, and without a comic relief,
the story could get pretty heavy. A virgin auctions her body off to the highest
bidder in an effort to save her dying mother’s life. Heavy stuff, right? Personally,
I like a little hehe-haha with my lip biting and growlies and teary eyes and sniffles
and “ah-come-on!”s.

Second, and probably most important, she makes what Lanie
does, how easily she slips into her role, more believable. We all read stories
where the formula is that of a reluctant heroin placed in a situation where she
must be submissive, but finds she likes it. Right? Well, I never buy into it.
Doesn’t matter how hot the sex is. I need the story to be realistic. The
dilemma I was then faced with was how to make Lanie’s submission and eagerness
seem realistic.

Enter the Cooch.

Cooch is sort of like an alter ego, if you will. Lanie’s
scapegoat. A coping mechanism to help her mentally and emotionally deal with
the situation she’s found herself in.

Double Agent Coochie makes it possible for Lanie to secretly
like the … Read More »

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE . . .

Publisher’s Weekly . . . THE Publisher’s Weekly . . . had this to say about A MILLION DIRTY SECRETS:

*covers eyes* No, no, no . . . I was just trying to get your attention. I swear it!!!

*peeps through fingers, relieved to see everyone still has their clothes on*

Okay, then. Long time, no blog. Yes? The good news: I’ve been super busy in an attempt to get my latest bit of sexiness out on the shelves for ya. The even BETTER news: I have another release date, title, blurb, and cover reveal!!!

*the crowd goes wild, confetti falls from the ceiling, some gets in my mouth and I look like an idiot trying to spit it out, someone’s thong lands on the stage, and a random crowd surfer takes a leap* Seriously? Simmer down, sirs and misses. *picks up the thong and stuffs it in her pocket*

Book #2 in the Million Dollar Duet, A MILLION GUILTY PLEASURES, will be released February 11, 2014, just in time for Valentine’s Day! 

“But, C, we don’t even know what it’s about,” you say. “How’s about a little blurb for it?” 

By golly, that’s a stupendous idea! *infomercial smile*

Delaine Talbot has a secret. When a matter of life and death threatens to tear apart her family, Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive feast of the senses, awakening desires she only dreamed about.   Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love.

USA TODAY BEST SELLER!!!
