Why I write erotic romance

People often ask me why I write erotic romance. Some are merely curious, while others ask the question as if they’re wondering why I sleep with snakes (because they’re so fuzzy and cuddly!). There’s an easy answer to this question, and there’s a longer, more complicated one. Here’s the easy answer: it’s fun and I’m good at it! After all, doesn’t everyone want to do something that they’re good at and is fun to boot?

The more convoluted answer is – I write erotic romance for a number of reasons. Not only am I good at it, but I can also write it quickly, which helps when you’re still trying to get your name out there. I think I’m more of a “natural” at writing erotic romance – I don’t have to reach for story lines or the right way to say something. Also, erotic romance sells, and I’d like to have a career as a writer. Lastly, because although there are a lot of things I could write, this is what I want to write. And that’s good enough for me!


Cassandra Carr lives in Western New York with her husband, Inspiration, and her daughter, Too Cute for Words. When not writing she enjoys watching hockey and hanging out on Twitter. Her debut novel, Talk to Me, was released by Loose Id on March 22, 2011. For more information about Cassandra, check out her website at, "like" her Facebook fan page at or follow her on Twitter at


The elevator doors opened, and Drew hurried to unlock his apartment and punch his code into the security pad before continuing straight to his bedroom. He spun and picked Jamie up as she neared the door, and she let out a squeak of protest.


“What? I’m trying to be romantic. Efficient too.” He grinned at her when she struggled to get out of his grip. The way she fought against him both amused and aroused him. “Not so fast,” he warned her. “I’m not planning to let you get away until I’m good and finished with you.”
Jamie cocked an eyebrow. “Good and finished? Be still my heart! Such dreamy talk from a man like you! I had no idea.”

Drew laughed and dropped Jamie on the king-size bed with enough force to make her bounce, then climbed on top of her. Before she could protest again, he’d pressed his erection into her belly and taken her lips in another deep kiss. Jamie melted beneath him, snaking her hands around his neck while his found her hips, pulling her closer. “You need to get naked,” he declared, rolling off her.

“Just me? That’s hardly fair. If I’m getting naked, then this time, so are you.” Her beautiful, full lips pouted at him.

He stood up, and in seconds, his pants and boxer briefs landed in a heap on the floor. He pulled his shirt over his head and added it to the pile. “Your turn.”

Jamie rose up on her elbows and stared at him in disbelief. “How did you do that so fast? And may I add, very nice.” She smiled and waggled her eyebrows, giving him a quick once-over.

“When I want something, I don’t waste time. And I want you naked. Now.”

He reached over and started yanking her top over her head, but she batted his hands away.

“Hey -- stop that. You’re going to dislocate my shoulder with your beastlike strength.”

Drew laughed but allowed Jamie to gently pull her blouse over her head. He took it and tossed it on the chair near the window. Next she tugged her jeans off, leaving her in only her bra and panties, which Drew made short work of.

He groaned when she was fully nude. “God, you’re fucking gorgeous, you know that? And I’m gonna put my hands and my tongue and my mouth and my cock everywhere on and in your beautiful body, so you better be ready.”

Jamie shivered, and he covered her body with his, kissing her briefly before moving down her jawline, sucking and licking. This is gonna be good.

I recently ventured into spicy romance, not quite erotica...yet. Though my brain certainly can whip up those naughty scenes...I just haven't put them down on paper yet! Congrats on the new release!

Thanks Jenn! I think it's good to fantasize for a while before you really try to write erotica or erotic romance. If you know what turns you on you may find something that will turn your readers on!
