Born to Be Wild

Hey everyone! I’m super excited to be blogging with Delilah today. When it comes to erotic romance, she is definitely a master. In fact, one of the very first erotic anthologies I ever read was a western that included a Delilah novella, and since then, I was hooked!

I write a variety of genres, romantic suspense being my main one, but if I’m being honest, sexy contemporaries are my absolute favorite to write because they’re always more fun. My latest release is definitely one of my hotter ones (Actually, my contemporaries only seem to get sexier and sexier with each book, but nobody seems to be complaining, so… :))

Born to be Wild, my latest ebook with Samhain Publishing, centers around Jake Bishop, a bona fide bad boy who comes home looking for a distraction. And he finds one in the form of Bree Lockhart, the wealthy good girl who spent a few months in high school being very, very bad with Jake. The moment they’re reunited, it’s obvious that the flame still burns hot, and Jake, of course, is determined to lure Bree right back to the wild side.

So, here’s a little excerpt that shows exactly how persuasive Jake can be! Anyone who stops by and comments today will be entered in a draw to win a copy of BTBW, so don’t be shy! Let me know what you think of the excerpt, or your thoughts on erotic romances, or how hot is too hot (if that’s even possible), or anything else that strikes your fancy! The winner’s name will be posted in the comments section at midnight tonight (eastern time).

Also, be sure to stop by my website (, or connect with me on Facebook ( or Twitter (@ElleKennedy). I love chatting with fellow readers and writers!

Jake wanted to lick every inch of Bree’s delectable body. Unfortunately, she was sitting all the way across the table, and there was all this damn food between them, acting like a barrier. He couldn’t believe how incredible she looked. And he’d forgotten how frickin’ smart she was. As she spoke in length about her latest case—a lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company that had knowingly sold defective drugs—it surprised him to discover that he was actually interested in everything she had to say.

“What are you thinking about?”

Her soft voice drew him out of his thoughts. Jake met her eyes, then reached for his wine. The stem of the pansy-ass glass was too skinny, and he felt awkward holding the damn thing.

“Jake?” she prompted.

“Trust me, you don’t want to know what I’m thinking,” he finally said.

Her blue eyes flickered with irritation. “You haven’t changed at all.”

“Should I have?” He smirked. “You always seemed to like me just the way I was.”

“Rough, crude, complete lack of restraint, smartass remarks?” She tilted her head, causing her raven hair to fall over one shoulder. “It was all very exciting when I was seventeen. Not so much anymore.”

“Bullshit.” He let out a deep chuckle. “You still like it.”

Rather than answering, she pushed away her empty dinner plate and dabbed at the corners of her mouth with a linen napkin. The private room of Carlotta’s boasted a romantic candlelit atmosphere, complete with a red silk tablecloth, white roses, delicate china and expensive wine.

But Jake wasn’t looking for romance. From the second he’d seen Bree again, he’d been thinking about nothing but sex.

A wave of sexual nostalgia swept over him. “We were good together, weren’t we, sweetheart?”

A rosy flush rose on her pale cheeks. “Can’t deny that.”

Jake fingered the stem of his glass, noticing that her gaze was following the motions of his hand. “Remember the Derry Falls game?”

Her cheeks went even redder. “No, not really.”

“Sure you do.” He shifted in his chair, reaching down to subtly rearrange his growing erection. “The team stayed in the same hotel as the cheerleaders, you were on the second floor, I was on the third…we snuck away and met up in the bathroom…” He dragged his tongue over his lower lip. “I went down on you for nearly an hour in one of the stalls…ring a bell?”

Her arousal was written all over her pretty face. Oh yeah, she remembered. Jake’s cock stiffened to full mast as the wicked images flashed across his brain. Bree leaning against the stall door, one leg lifted up on the toilet paper dispenser as she exposed herself to him. The feel of the linoleum floor beneath his knees as he bent between her legs and licked her up like an ice cream cone.

“Jake, please,” Bree said, a wary expression on her face.

“That’s right—you said that exact thing, over and over again.”

She sighed. “You’re incorrigible.”

“Damn straight.”

    Just wanted to wave hi, Elle! When it comes to writing erotic romance, you’re no slouch yourself, you know 😉 Great to enjoy a little peek at Jake and Bree! Do you have more stories planned for the Welcome to Paradise series?

    No need to include me in the drawing–I’m thrilled to have BTBW waiting for me on the TBR 🙂

    Fedora! (waving back!) Thanks for popping by 🙂 There’s at least one more Welcome to Paradise book, which will be Austin’s story (the youngest Bishop brother). Hope you like BTBW!

    Fedora, I left a whole comment about Austin’s book being next and that I hope you like BTBW and probably other insightful things, but for some reason it didn’t post. So, testing….

    Hmmm…will be checking this one out more. Sounds good.

    I do like stories where the couples have had somewhat of a history. It adds to the drama.

    Hi Elle! You’re a new author for me but I’ve had my eye on this one. 😉 As for erotic romance, I love it – the hotter, the better! Bring it on. 😀

    I like dirty. I don’t like sex with a little story stuffed in because you have to. I also don’t cross certain taboo lines (like brother/sister). I think everyone should give erotic a chance at least once. Afterall, some of the great classic in literature started their lives as erotic novels!
