Guest Interview - Berengaria Brown

Please give a warm welcome to my special guest Berengaria Brown!

Does travel play in the writing of your books?
I have several books set in China, as it’s a place I’ve traveled to several times on business. It’s a fascinating country, with awesome traditions, and a culture dating back many thousands of years. The people are so polite and helpful I always enjoy being there.

Who is your favorite author?
Georgette Heyer was the person who introduced me to romance and I adore her historical romances, especially her Regencies. So I guess it’s not surprising I have written a couple Regency-set erotic romances.

When was your first sale?
I had written several books and sent them off each to a different publishing house. My first sale was “Intensity” to Siren BookStrand and I was still Snoopy dancing around the house when just a few days later I received a contract on a second book at a different publisher.

Where do you research for your books?
Research is exactly the same as for non-erotic romance: checking historical and geographical facts, choosing appropriate names and places, cross checking all the details of equipment used and so on. I use the internet mostly and have bookmarked a lot of helpful sites. Writing historicals is the hardest as they take a lot more checking than contemporaries.

Who are your books published with?
I have six books at Siren BookStrand, six at Torquere with another releasing at the end of this month, four at Ellora’s Cave, three at Breathless Press, two at Evernight Publishing with another coming out this month, two at Silver Publishing and one each at Aspen Mountain Press, Logical Lust and Whiskey Creek Torrid.

What do you think makes a good story?
I have to care about the main characters. If I don’t want them to have their happy ending I won’t read the book. Once the characters have engaged me, I like a plot with some humor and suspense.

What books have most influenced your life?
Georgette Heyer introduced me to romance, especially historical romance, and Jaid Black opened my eyes to erotic romance.

What book are you reading now?
“Phantom’s Rest” by Anny Cook. She has the most awesome world building, a light touch with humor, and fun characters, always with unexpected twists.

Amber: I totally agree!!!!!!

What do you do to unwind and relax?
Read. I started out as a reader and I still love to read.
I’m also addicted to chocolate.

Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they?
Keep reading. Keep writing. Keep polishing your work, and keep submitting. Read the submission guidelines of the publishing house carefully, and abide by them. Only submit to a house that publishes books similar to yours. And good luck!

“Tempting Tenealle”

Continuously overwhelmed by an unending inundation of visiting cousins, Tenealle decides the only solution is to buy a bigger apartment. Evan’s selling an apartment that is perfect for her. In fact, Evan and his partner, Faris, are perfect for her. How can she concentrate on renovating an apartment when she’d much rather be in their bedroom?
Evan has inherited his Great Aunt Enid’s apartment and doesn’t want to refurbish it, so is looking for a quick sale, even though his partner, Faris, can see its potential. They both see enormous potential in a relationship with the totally delicious Tenealle, despite her myriad cousins, too. But which cousin tried to harm her. And why? And what is the story about the fountain?

“Tempting Tenealle”

adult excerpt

She couldn’t help but notice both men’s cocks were ready for action again. Evan’s penis was wider and a slightly darker color than Faris’s—like his body, his cock was long. But Tenealle had no complaints about Evan’s equipment. He’d filled and stretched her pussy in the most delicious way and given her an excellent orgasm.
“Now lie on your backs and let me play,” she ordered them.
“What do you plan to play?”asked Faris curiously.
“I’ll think of something,” she replied, moving over to a large chest of drawers. The first drawer held socks and briefs, which she ignored. But the second had neckties and other male accessories she rather thought could be fun.
Tenealle grabbed a handful of neckties and gently bound their hands together, then tied the two men together by using a few neckties to loop their manacled hands together.
Then she settled herself over their four legs and draped a couple of neckties over their bodies, swirling the fabric across their abs, around their belly buttons, and over their thighs. Both cocks lengthened and darkened with need, and already a bead of cum had formed in the eye of Faris’s cock.
“I must be doing something right,” she murmured.
“Ah, honey, you’re killing us here,” said Evan.
Faris nodded and wiggled his hips.
Tenealle rubbed her wet pussy up and down their thighs, then rotated herself to sit across their bellies so they couldn’t see what she was doing.
She tormented them, gently stroking their thighs and groins, even occasionally touching their balls or shafts very lightly, but never giving satisfaction.
By now both men were frantically thrusting their hips up at her, desperate for fulfillment. Tenealle decided she had teased them enough. Besides, she was longing for a taste of them both.
She gripped a cock firmly in each hand, sliding her fist up from root to tip, reveling in the sensations of strong muscles inside soft skin. Again and again she stroked them, adding an occasional twist to her grip, before leaning forward to suck first Evan, then Faris, deep into her mouth.
Next, she played with their balls, rolling them inside their sacs while licking across the cock heads. Finally, she settled down to seriously suck them, a hand on each shaft, holding it firmly and stroking it while she sucked first one, then the other, rubbing along the thick, ropey vein, running her tongue under the sensitive ridge of the caps, and scraping her teeth gently over the two cock heads.
Tenealle was enjoying herself very much, concentrating on pleasing her men, loving the urgent upthrusts of their hips, when four hands grabbed her and flipped her over. A condom appeared from nowhere, and Faris was pushing deep into her cunt.
“What the hell?” Her brain was reeling with the sudden change of game plan.
“We untied each other. It’s time for us to take charge,” said Evan, kneeling beside her head and offering his red and needy cock to her lips.
Faris held her hips still while she opened wide to accept as much of Evan into her mouth as she could take. Tenealle tipped her head right back, opening the back of her throat, and swallowed his cock head.
God, he felt good, and so did Faris in her pussy. When Faris pushed right in, he almost touched the mouth of her womb, he was so long.
The two men controlled their strokes, pushing in and pulling out simultaneously, quickly driving Tenealle to a place where she lost all power to think and could barely remember to vary her sucking to give Evan pleasure. Faster and faster the men thrust, pushing into her hard and deep. Tenealle clenched her pussy muscles and sucked hard, running her tongue under the ridge of Evan’s cock.
Fingers pinched her nipples. A fingernail scraped across her clit, and an orgasm exploded from her pussy, her clit, her breasts. The power of her climax made Tenealle shake all over. Desperately she sucked on Evan, wanting him to come too. Again she ran her tongue under the sensitive cap of his penis, then pressed her tongue along the vein of his shaft, rubbing up and down, before sucking him as deep as she could once again.
Suddenly, both men were there, Faris exploding in her hot pussy, and Evan in her mouth. Quickly she swallowed, enjoying his salty taste, and unbelievably, as she did, ripples spread from her pussy throughout her body.
She licked Evan clean, then relaxed back into the bed, feeling completed, fulfilled, satisfied.
“Damn, you two are good,” she whispered after Evan pulled out of her mouth.
“You’re pretty good yourself, honey,” said Faris, rolling her onto her side so both men could snuggle into her.
