Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

Q. You are a matchmaker -- your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?

A. Hmm, good question. I can't think of a couple I'd put together, at least not off the top of my head, but I'd look for an odd coupling from different genres- a pair of would-be-lovers who otherwise would never cross paths. Maybe a princess from an epic fantasy and a dominatrix from an erotic novel, or a geeky paranormal investigator from a classic horror novel and an old-fashioned Western cowboy.

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines.

Q. Is there a super hawt & smexy book that you've read and loved but would die if you ever caught your mom reading?

A. Oh, hell . . . I have shelves of hawt & smexy books I hope she never sets her eyes on! The Best Bondage Erotica 2012Red Velvet and Absinthe, and Take Me There anthologies immediately come to mind.


  1. That would be so cool, for a couple that you would never see together otherwise! Great answer! :)

  2. This question was really hard to come up with so your answer is perfectly acceptable.

  4. Hopping through. It'd be hilarious to see a geek with a cowboy. That'd be fun.

  5. I like the dominatrix paired with the princess, it reminds me of A.N.Roquelaure's (Anne Rice) Sleeping beauty series!

  14. Investigator and cowboy? sounds like a fun encounter!

  15. Oh I like that! Which gave me an idea... really strange opposites from different time periods. Let's take a historical fiction and a paranormal romance and smash them together. Baha.

    I like the blog. I wrote my English thesis about gender barriers in YA, so I love finding other people who like to talk about it. =)

    New Follower and Happy FF!

  16. I think I'd die if I caught my mom reading erotica, too. AWKWARD TURTLE.

    Happy Friday :)
