Seduce my Mind…


I don’t know about you but, as a rule, I am a voracious reader (of all things erotic, and a whole lot of other work besides). So I have decided to create a blog series that celebrates some of my favourite books and authors, from the sensual and romantic to the seriously erotic, some that are emotive but maybe don’t quite fit the ‘erotica’ category, and also some authors and books that have helped me and/or my writing. These may well come from all types of writing – I have quite eclectic reading tastes! They may start discussions, or they may introduce you to a new author. And, if I really like something I’ve written, I may even pop a sentence or two of mine in…!

I wish I knew who had written today’s offering. As a reader and writer of erotic fiction, the idea of seducing a mind (even if temporarily) really appeals to me. Isn’t that exactly what happens when we read erotica or erotic romance (or, indeed, any fiction)? We are seduced by the characters, the situation, and the sensations that good writing allows to permeate our minds. I hope that, at least for some people, sometimes, I am able to do that with my work.

The idea of seducing and claiming a soul is also very appealing to me. I wonder just what it takes to find someone’s soul? I know how hard it is for someone to find mine.

For someone like me, words – spoken or read – not only in person, but hidden in the heart of books, can touch me to the very core, too. Is it just me? Can words touch your soul? Can they grasp it and hold on, forever? Are there books that live inside you from the moment you read them? Or maybe not; but maybe there are some that make other parts of you eager for your mind to be seduced by the words…!

Feel free to share the titles of any work, or any authors, that have this kind of powerful effect on you. I’ll join in with mine, too!

      There are some that always stand out for me. Some words affect me deeply. They will be the ones I post.

      And I said I would mention some of the work that truly has affected me. I always tell people, when asked, that Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre was the book that left me thinking I knew what love and desire were. That was until I read her sister’s one and only book. Wuthering Heights told me what love and passion are, and I will always stand by that statement.

      I could say so much about erotica – how the brilliant Anaïs Nin has influenced my thoughts, which is true. But there are two male authors that have had huge impact on my work over the last few years: James Lear (who writes incredible MM historical, and whose hilarious yet deeply pained Mitch Mitchell erotic detective trilogy are to die for), and Nicholson Baker. Vox, for instance, is a truly beautiful piece of erotica, but House of Holes is my absolute favourite. It is the most bizarre, funny, yet weirdly erotic book I’ve ever read, and if you have never come across it, I would thoroughly recommend it. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve read it now!
