Karen Scott talks on her blog about how much she likes sex scenes that tell it like it is:
I love good sex scenes in my books. I love books that call a cock, a cock, and a pussy, a pussy…
That’s certainly what I try to do in all my DIAGNOSIS MURDER books. Karen believes that sex scenes are required in a good romance novel.
If the love scenes are well written, then I’m likely to buy, if not, I’ll
probably leave it on the shelf. Does that confirm every stereo-type out there
about romance readers? Probably, but I’m not here to promote respect for the
genre, so I couldn’t really care less.
bemuses me to think that there are hundreds of thousands of romance readers out
there who pretend that sex in books don’t matter to them, when in reality, it’s
probably what they’re secretly looking for.
Secretly? All you have to do is look at the covers to know what the books are selling and what the readers are buying.
