Welcome Larissa!


Hi everyone!

It’s great to be here, and I want to throw out a big thank you to Angela and the Dark Faerie Tales blog for having me!

So…what am I going to talk about today?

Sex. Yes, S.E.X.

See, one of the questions I’ve seen lately around the internet, and one I’ve been asked several times now is: Can you write a good romance novel without sex?

My answer: Absolutely.  But why would I?

I write what I like to read — and I like some steam in my romance.  I see sex scenes as a way to explore the characters, and in my books, no scene is gratuitous, no matter what critics might say. I had a reason to write them, and if that reason isn’t clear, well, I failed somewhere. But I definitely don’t stick sex scenes in my books for the sake of adding erotic content or because it’s an easy way to fill pages.

Easy?  No way.  Sex scenes are the hardest ones for me to write, and sometimes I actually try to come up with reasons to not write one. But ultimately, if the characters and plot call for it, I add it.

Sex is something we all do — heck, it’s one of our most basic, natural instincts. Like food and water, we must do it to survive. Oh, sure, as individuals we don’t need it, as in, we won’t die if we don’t get it (unlike my Seminus demons in the Demonica books!) but as a species, it’s crucial as a means for reproduction.

Our responses to sex, our deep-down feelings, are part of us, and how we approach it with a partner says as much about us as our work ethics, our habits, our manners.  Do we do it with all the lights off, or do we like to see everything? Do we do it only in bed, or are we open to other locations? Are we spontaneous, or is intimate time planned? Do we enjoy multiple positions and techniques, or are we missionary only? Are we adventurous or more apt to stick with the tried-and-true? Are we silent or loud, playful or intense?

With so much variation and so many possibilities, sex is one way I can dig deep into my characters and explore their relationships with each other.

So yes, I could write a romance with no sexual content. But I would always wonder how those characters relate to each other when they’re wearing nothing but skin, when they’re as exposed and as vulnerable as they will ever be.

There’s certainly nothing wrong with romances that close the bedroom door to a reader’s eyes, and I’ve read some outstanding ones.  But ultimately, I write what my characters want and need, and so far, they’ve wanted and needed that one hot-button word: sex.

So, readers, since I talked about sex in my post, I figure it’s only fitting to keep the theme in the comments.  At least, we’ll talk sexy.  What attributes do you find sexy in a person?  It can be physical or not; for example, I love hands…watching a skilled set of male hands perform surgery or fire a gun just makes me sigh. I also find it incredibly sexy when a big, strong man cuddles a baby or a kitten. Sexy can be physical or a state of mind, and to me, kindness is always sexy.

So tell me what you find to be sexy and you’ll be eligible to win a Demonica tote bag filled with goodies, a signed copy of Pleasure Unbound, and an ebook copy of Eternity Embraced!

Author Bio:

New York Times best-selling author Larissa Ione grew up reading Stephen King, Jack London, and Dean Koontz. She began writing horror and fantasy, but during her enlistment in the U.S. Air Force, she learned to love romance.

She now writes sexy, gritty paranormal romance for Grand Central Publishing and Kensington Books, steamy contemporary romance for Red Sage and Samhain, and erotic fantasy romance under the name Sydney Croft (with Stephanie Tyler), for Random House

She is also lucky enough to write full time, which is a blessing given her husband’s very mobile military career. Though she considers the Pacific Northwest to be her home, she has lived all over the world and currently resides in Wisconsin.

    Hi, Love your books and liked what you had to say!! I would like to meet a man who is big but in good shape(not skinny) and who has a great smile and likes to cuddle.

    I’m not sure I can exactly put to words what I find sexy. Some men just ooze sexiness to me (and they’re definitely not the Ryan Reynolds sexiness) while others do not. If I had to say one thing, it would be a man’s hands- at least hands that have a few calluses (to add texture!).

    Larissa, Great topic!!!!!

    I am glad you like to write those wonderful sex scenes. You are right, they are also a part of what makes the characters, and also how we can relate to them. If we want to root for them, or if we want them to get what they deserve. I have to admit some of them have given me ideas. LOL – now just to find someone to use them on. HEHEHEHEH :wink:

    What I find sexy on a guy is his hands and his eyes. The hands because they can be firm or soft, what ever the occasion calls for. The eyes are always expressive no matter what they try to show or not to show.

    I was just talking about this very subject on Goodreads today. An automatic panty dropper is a big, tough looking, macho guy to go gooey over a cat. Looooove it! Good erotic sex scenes definitely make a difference in whether or not I will follow a series. They don’t need to be overly graphic, but I need to feel that connection to the characters and the depth of their passion. That’s why I am so enamored with the Demonica series. They get it just right, and if I’m in the mood for something a little bolder, well ARCO always fits the bill! Keep up the great work.

    Great post!
    Physically, I think that a toned body (doesn’t have to be super buff) and strong hands and nice eyes are very sexy. I think someone who is protective and loyal and not afraid to show it is sexy.

    Loved the interview! :) I too, have a thing about men’s hands. I like large, strong, masculine and capable hands. My husband has beautiful (in a masculine way) hands. He also has long, strong thighs and a great butt. ;) Score 2 more on the sexy scale! Add to that, he’s tall and dark and he’s damn near perfect (but don’t tell him that!)

    Oh yes! This has been an amazing series to read.
    I love an Alpha who is not an Alpha-hole, but strong with a squishy inside. Who will protect but not be a arse about it. He has to have a dark side or past and wants to be better. He is finding love but it is a fight on its own since love is hard.
    I cannot wait for the next book in the series ;)

    Love the post and your books.Amazing and addicting. I guess what I find sexy in books with men is the alpha attitude.I love the utter devotion.I love the mystery of the man.It’s the tension between characters that make the book for me. Nice firm bodies and tatoos are an added bonus.

    +1 answer: What I find sexy is a man’s man. Gruff and calluses. I like rough hands but gentle in tough. Another is natural smell. I love a man who doesn’t need to cover with heavy smells.
    Another sexy attribute is when they can say more with their eyes verse actually talking. Love a man who is confident and caring. I love seeing my husband with our children and when they were born he was so concerned for them and loved them. I find that most sexy. I a man’s man who is not afraid of getting googly eyes over a baby.

    Thanks for the guest post! The thing I find sexy … eyes. Or maybe, to be more specific, the way a man looks at me. My boyfriend – when he looks at me, I can feel it cut down right deep into my bones, it makes my stomach do summersaults. So sexy. Thanks! :)

    Physically I love a mans eyes…you can read so much in them!!! I also think a man that is truly loyal is sexy as hell! I don’t mean glued to your hip loyal. Just one that thinks of you and respects you above all else!

    I love a sexy smile. or even a playful one :) also, theres always a thrill when I open my eyes during a long kiss to see his eyes open watching me too. that is usually followed with a smile at being caught stealing a peak.

    Passion. Being invested in something — be that music, art, a sport, whatever — that drive to do something you love is utterly sexy.

    Also, I have a thing for arms. Strong upper arms = sexy.

    This might sound funny but I find the back sexy. My husband comes home and takes off his uniform top (military) and walks around with just the pants on. I always find myself staring at how his back muscles work. He has the sexiest tattoos also. So when authors write out the sex scenes in their books and describe about muscles working ;) I always picture the back. Thanks for the contest.

    I have been looking for an opportunity to read one of Larissa Ione’s novels. The name “Ione” is sentimental to me as it was my former mother-in-law’s given name. (She pronounced it “I On”.) The thinga I find very sexy are a beautiful smile and laughing eyes. That’s what I call it anyway….the eyes light up and seem to enhance that smile. Then I notice the color – I love light blue, and whether they look directly at me. I think a sexy smile turns me on more than anything. I think it is also very sexy to be looking in a man’s eyes when making love.

    I’m not sure I can exactly put to words what I find sexy. I guess it would have to be the whole package. The eyes when he looks at you and you melt and the bad boy attitude.

    Bad guys – hot, smart, snarky bad guys. I always root for the ones that are bad. I mean, I even thought Gaspard Ulliel was hot in Hannibal Rising :)

    Wow. Just wow! Loved the excerpts and guest post.
    I love sexy things, especially my man! I love his abs and the way he can flex his muscles. Swoon. And I love his voice. It’s deep and sensual, don’t even get me started on his laugh. I think that’s what caught my attention first.
