Got your attention, did I? Well, I’ve never played it (my parents were missionaries, remember?). I really wish I’d had a less staid upbringing, because I think Strip Poker would be fun (and don’t suggest doing it with Hubby, because he hates playing cards). In fact, the sexiest game I ever played was Spin the Bottle (once), and Truth or Dare in a mixed group (once).
Maybe that’s why I enjoy writing sexy games in fiction. I wrote a Strip Whist scene in One Night with a Prince (they didn’t play poker in the Regency). I wrote a naughty billiards scene in A Dangerous Love. I even wrote a sexy chess scene in After the Abduction, a reissue that coincidentally came out yesterday. And I chose those three because, well, I like to play cards and pool and chess. So why not make them sexy?
Those books were a while ago, though, so I think I need to do another of those sexy game scenes. What do you think would make a sexy scene involving a game in a historical (let’s keep it as clean as possible, though–save something for the book)? What’s your favorite sensual scene in a book (of any romance sub genre), involving a game? Do you play sexy games? Do you like to read them in books?
In celebration of my latest release, I’m offering an autographed copy of the reissue of After the Abduction to one lucky commenter!
