Today I'd like to welcome my dear friend, Virginia Nelson, to the blog today! She's got a new release, Clothing Optional and she's here to talk about it. Take it away, Virg!
First off, Wendi, thanks so much for having me on the blog today! It has been very hot here in Northeast Ohio. The perfect weather for my upcoming release with MuseItHot, Clothing Optional.
Yes, I want to make a confession. My name is Virginia Nelson and I write steamy books.
Phew. Glad that’s out.
Now that it is, I have to say that—as a reader—I find the hot romance to be far more believable if the characters give me a reason to believe they care about one another. There are a lot of ways for a writer to achieve this.
The one I used in Clothing Optional (mmf erotic) is a friend’s first approach. Murphy and Brie, longtime best friends, have feelings that go a little further than friendship. But the thing that changes their relationship is the catalyst of Andy, Murphy’s new boyfriend. Andy encourages Murphy to dare a little more…cross barriers that seemed impossible.
On the rebound, Brie is thrilled at the idea of a vacation on the beaches of Florida. It will be especially great since it is with two men who are absolutely irresistible…and equally unattainable. Murphy and his boyfriend are offering the escape and maybe, if she spends enough time with them, she will be able to resist wanting to strip them every time she sees them.
Murphy has always been oddly attracted to his best pal, Brie. But he has never touched a woman in that way. When his lover and boyfriend Andy suggests they make love to her, that she is perfect for them to experience a ménage, Murphy wonders if he is not enough somehow.
But the temptation of having them both…When they get to the resort and find out that “Clothing Optional” should have been in bold print on the brochure, the three of them are in for the weekend of their lives.

Virginia Nelson spends her days chasing three very active kids around. When she is not doing this, or plotting taking over the world, she likes to write, play in the mud, drive far too fast and scream at inanimate objects. She can often be found listening to music that is far too loud and typing her next fantastic tale of blood, sex and random acts of ineptitude. Romance, in Ms. Nelson’s opinion, is not about riding off into the sunset on the back of a horse with the knight in shining armor— it is about riding the dragon. If the knight can keep up… well, that is love.
