Bound In Lingerie by Gina Gordon + Interview + Giveaway

My Q&A with Gina Gordon:

• What makes writing your passion?



It just consumes me. It’s in everything I do and say. It’s who I am. There is never a time when I’m not thinking about a current project or getting inspired with a new idea. It will forever be my passion.



• What are some of the national organizations to which you belong?



I belong to the Romance Writers of America (RWA). I am also a member of the RWA special interest chapters, Toronto Romance Writers and Passionate Ink. I will be continuing my duties as Vice President of the Passionate Ink chapter until the end of 2012. I also belong to Savvy Authors.

 

• A fire broke out in your house’s library.  What are five books you will take with you on your way out?



Only 5? You’re mean (: If I had to pick I would grab my Lorelei James books. I have the first 6 in print. Can I take 6?



• Do your nearest and dearest know what you do, and if so, what was their reaction when they found out?



Only the very nearest and dearest know about my writing. Pretty much everyone assumed I was writing porn until I schooled them of course. My mom even called me a “horn dog”. But now, I’m lucky that everyone is supportive and excited about my accomplishments.



• Is there another sub-genre aside from your primary sub-genre that you would like to write for and why?



I’ve been saying for a while that I’d like to try my hand at Romantic Suspense. I have the concept but I just have too many contemporary ideas planned out to get to it. 



• What’s your “aha” moment when writing a sex scene in a book – the point at which you realize you’ve captured the essence of a hot encounter?



When the characters realize the gravity of the scene. I try to make the stakes bigger with every sex scene and I try my best not to make the sex frivolous. I know I’ve accomplished the intent or reached my “aha” moment when the hero or heroine connect emotionally on a deeper level and realize there is more to the thrusting going on.



• What makes you toss a book aside in frustration?



Unhappy endings or even happy for now endings. I need the angels singing, I’ll-love-you-forever, I’ve-never-been-happier ending. Otherwise, the book gets tossed.



• What’s the craziest writing idea you’ve had?



My husband always says that a book is no good until someone dies. LOL  I actually have an idea where both the hero and heroine die at the end of the story.  I don’t think I could ever write it, it goes against everything I believe in when it comes to romance, but it’s there in the back of my head.



• Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?



I have a new series I’ve started, the Madewood series. It’s about four foster brothers who are all chefs. Each will get their own book. I’d also like to write a third story in my 5 Favorite series.



• How would you define “romance”?

 

Romance is a journey–a very complicated, messy, trip two people (or even more depending on who you’re reading (: ) take that leads them to their happily ever after.

My Thoughts:

Bound in Lingerie is a daring erotic romance.

This is the first book I read by Gina Gordon and it was a great surprise. It wasn’t what I was expecting and I was happy with how the story was being told. More than a few times I thought the characters weren’t convincing me, thinking they were stereotypical and even insane, but that is exactly what made it so fun! It’s one of the intentions and purpose of it: just let it go and go have some fun! Stop taking it all so seriously and be happy! Don’t be afraid ; )

The secondary cast of characters are also fun and you can really tell close they are to each other. I would love to read the other books from this series. The ending is very sweet and I bet you’ll adore this story as much as I did! And don’t worry, if you’re wondering about the sex scenes..There’s a lot of them in the just the right places.


Heat Level: 5/5

Rating: 5/5

I received this book in digital format through Goddess Fish Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.


Bound In Lingerie

by Gina Gordon

September 14th 2011 by Lyrical Press

Being bound together was never part of the plan.

Amie Woods is living the life she wants, but her search for a man who can keep up with her sexual demands has tested her faith in Happily Ever After. Milton Campbell bears the weight of the world on his shoulders, but when he has the opportunity to re-ignite old friendships, it reminds him of a time in his life when he knew how to have fun.

When the two meet, sparks fly–and not the good kind. Their dislike for one another is second only to the sexual attraction simmering between them. A twist of circumstance lands them in the same bed, and Milton jumps at the opportunity to put his pleasure in Amie’s hands. A two-week fling might be exactly what he needs to bring back his love of life, and Amie can’t throw away the opportunity to be herself–both in and out of the bedroom.

At first, they seemed all wrong for each other. But when ‘casual’ builds into something more, Amie and Milton must decide if they’re willing to risk being bound together by love.

CONTENT WARNING: Contains explicit language, sex, and a torturous strip tease in leather.

  1. Very good interview ladies! I like reading about what you authors think about when creating your characters. I like your ‘crazy idea’ about your hero and heroine dying at the end, but like in a twisty kind of way, something like they became angels, so we the readers knew they weren’t technically gone. Thanks for sharing with us, and for the giveaway 😉

  2. Oh, a new to me author! I agree about needing the HEA or Happy for now ending. I have heard horror stories (at least in my opinion) where one of the main characters die at the end. I would scream and write the author bad notes if that happened to me!
    The book sounds great. I love that they don’t like each other at all, yet are still attracted to each other. I would love to read this and see who changes first and how deal with this.

  5. This book looks great and would love to win and read. Love the cover, very sexy. I have to agree with you about the books. I would save my kids and get them out and then I have a couple of bookshelves that I would have to take with me. Thank god they are near the front door. If I had to choose only 6 I don’t know what I would take. All 3 bookshelves then. Can’t just choose 6. I would have to grab my purse also because that has my nook in it. I hope I can get the fire out before that happens. I would cry if I lost my books.
    Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

  7. This sounds really good, great interview! And I hate (answering) the question which books would you take, because there’s no way I could only choose 5.
