Welcome to the 61st week of My Sexy Saturday.
The theme this week is all about getting your sexy on…no matter what your age. We’ve talked over and over again that everyone has their own idea of sexy. What is sexy to one person won’t necessarily be sexy to another. Yet, getting one’s sexy on is a driving theme no matter what the age of the character, no matter what situation they are in, be it life or death. You know as an author what we’re talking about. These are the characters who are ageless and always seem to be getting their sexy on. They can be a farmer’s daughter or the farmer, they can be a doctor’s wife or the doctor, they can even be a billionaire or his wonderful assistant.
Everyone has that special significant other who makes them feel special, who makes them get their sexy on. Maybe in the beginning, they don’t even know just what’s going on. But they know something is because they feel different around the person. Their senses are heightened, they just know when that person enters a room because they can feel the electricity between them. They feel sexy every time that special someone is close.
Every romance book has this sexual tension where the couple is getting to know each other, where something is happening that neither can deny or quite explain. It just is and it makes them feel sexy, wanted, desired. They can also have these feelings when their relationship has aged and they’ve been together for a while. It doesn’t matter just where they are in their relationship, they just feel sexy around each other.
Those stories stuck with you, those characters made an impression on you and romance became something special and interesting and oh so compelling for you as a reader and writer. This week, show us the characters who make each other feel that way. Again, these are the characters who are just starting a relationship or they’ve been together forever or they are somewhere in between. Those characters love being in love, they love falling in love and they feel sexy every time they see their significant other. Show us the characters who are going to stick with each other through thick and thin, who see sexy where others don’t. These are the ones who just want to be with each other, love each other and always be together, no matter how long or short the time.
And along the way, they have the sexiest romance ever. They love each other to distraction and with every word we know and come to understand that love. They can be anyone but most of all they are at their best when they are with their significant other. Show us that they may have the happily-ever-after we all dream about so much.
Show us those sexy characters. Show what is in their romance that makes it a sexy romance and them a sexy couple. Give us the whole story on how they fell in love, what they do to stay in love and all the little details in between. Show us the good, the bad and the ugly as it’s those situations which pull us closer to those characters.
Show us their sexy existence with a clandestine rendezvous or a weekly event, prove to us why we love, love, love them. From the moment they meet their significant other, their first hot kiss, to the fulfillment of a dream, show us the wonders of finding, falling in love and loving one’s significant other.
Give our readers more to drool, sigh and love about our stories as we share our special love stories with them. Let’s show our readers that happily-ever-afters start with some fantastic moments, be it soft and gentle or rough and fast. We love the good parts of the stories where the characters are making love or about to be loved. Forever. We love all the parts that show us the sexy characters we’ve come to care about. Share each and every moment with us this week!
If your story has one or more of these fabulous love scenes with some very sexy, hot characters in a love that’s destined to last forever, please share them with us…share all those sexy moments that you have between your characters even if you don’t exactly fit the theme this week…remember every relationship is important!
Sexy can be anything, such as romantic moments like walks on the beach, a home cooked meal or even in another galaxy. It could be two lovers here on Earth dreaming about the day where they go on a magical vacation to another planet. Or staying right here at one of those wonderful places we can find in our own world.
Readers want to see those characters, the ones who can’t get enough of each other as well as ones who are fighting their way back to being part of the world once again. These are the types of characters they can’t forget, the one they want to take home and keep forever. Readers love the kisses, the looks or touch of each and every one of our characters.
Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books.
We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy!
