Sin at Sea:

When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.

Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters. 

Along the way, Alysin learns that she won't have to fake an orgasm if she's with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?

Vixen in Vegas:

It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.

Soon Alysin will be tested. 

After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules. 

Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?

Bio:

What made her decide to be an erotica author?

Simple.

How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?

Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn't believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life's cliche moments spicy.

Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.


Author Interview:

What sparked your interest in becoming a romance writer?

I often joke that I became a writer of romance and erotica because it was the best way for me to parlay my passions into a career.

What was the first romance novel you read that made an impression on you?

When I was really young, I read The Thornbirds.  It was the naughtiest book I could imagine.  I remember thinking that I needed to be able to write like that.  So, that’s what I try to do.

Tell us 5 surprising things about yourself.

1.     I have a tattoo.
2.     I want more…small, sexy, meaningful.
3.     My palate has really become more sophisticated…as evidenced by my love of sushi and asparagus…sometimes even together.
4.     I think cruising is the only way to travel.
5.     For someone so intrigued by sex, I didn’t lose my virginity for a really long time.

What is your writing environment.

I write wherever I am comfortable at the moment.  It could be in the living room, lying on the bed, on the garage couch, or even the floor.  I abhor writing at desks.  It feels too much like work and I just want to have fun with it.
One of your favorite quotes.

By Mae West: You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Which authors have caught your interest lately? Why?

Hmmm.  In the author groups, I’m finding ones that I try to emulate, that I admire for their skill and their abilities.  JB McGee has a new book coming out,,,Skipping Stones.  I’ve been able to beta that a bit.  And Brandy Dorsch is an aspiring writer who has an interesting looking paranormal romance coming out soon.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?

It has taken me forever, but Sin at Sea is the kind of book I always wanted to be brave enough to write.  There is something so liberating about not worrying over pushing the envelope.  At the same time, I think while writing something very erotic, I kept it classy.  That’s important.  Even my smut has a story.

How did you get the idea for this particular novel?

My goal was to write this great beach read.  It kind of forced me to go through with it, get it published for summer.  I took everything that I loved about summer…the water, the beaches, the travel, vacations, hot guys, and sexy times.  There are a lot of my own personal experiences in it.

What is your favorite scene in your new release?

I love where they meet, how they meet, their interaction.  Yes, Alysin and Mr. Bedroom Eyes have chemistry from the start.

If you could be one of your characters - Who would you be? And why?

I would love to be Alysin, so supremely confident, so independent.  She speaks her mind.  She’s very worldly.  She’s tough. 
What’s your idea of a perfect date?

I love new twists on old clich√© moments.  I love candlelight dinners.  I love picnics.  Put the two together…bliss.

If you could take a romantic trip, where would it be?

Someplace warm and sandy.
