Calista Fox | Sex and the Action Hero/Heroine
July 9, 2009
I love writing suspense and sexy romance, so itâ€™s only natural that I
combined my two passions in my July novel, Object of Desire (Red Sage
Publishing, trade paperback). Whatâ€™s most difficult about writing steamy,
adventure-packed stories? Finding a break in the suspense action for
some sex action!
In Object, Laurel
Blackwood and Devon Mallory are both trying to get their hands on a legendary
gem and theyâ€™re constantly being shot atâ€”making it very difficult for
these two to hook up! Luckily, theyâ€™re highly passionate characters, with
massive sparkage between them.
The secret to sex and the action hero/heroine is taking advantage of the natural
tension thatâ€™s created by the dangerous, life-threatening situations in which
the characters are immersed. They have to always be aware of their surroundings
and the perils inherent to their adrenaline-junkie lifestyles. Theyâ€™re putting
themselves in grave danger when they make love, because it diverts their
attentionâ€”that ups the stakes and makes for even hotter chemistry! Plus, thereâ€™s
a sense of urgency because the bad guys can bust in at any timeâ€¦. And yet, a
sexy action H/H wouldnâ€™t skimp on satisfying his/her mateâ€”no matter how dire the
consequences of the stolen moment. All of this leads to more intense feelings
between the two, which culminates in not just a sexually charged, action-packed
story, but an emotionally charged one as well!

Desire and Calista Fox can be found on her website (www.calistafox.com) and

Action + passion...wouaw, sounds like something I'd really to read !! I love romantic suspense when the romance isn't overshadowed by too much action.

I understand your problem. I just finished a book where everyone is in danger but they wait a day or two to do anything so they can jazz up their romance. I kept thinking "How can you plan for tomorrow let alone the rest of you lives if you get killed by this maniac today?"
(Karin Tillotson 7:43am July 9, 2009)
How can you even think about sex when your life is in danger? Guess I'd have to read the book to find out!
(Margay Roberge 7:45am July 9, 2009)
sounds very hot!
(Debra Czarnogursky 7:46am July 9, 2009)
"Object of Desire" sounds like a good read. Could use an escape from the economy & news. I have always loved the name Devon.
(Donna Petrilla 7:47am July 9, 2009)
I really like the name of your book. Sounds like a good read.
(Vikki Parman 7:48am July 9, 2009)
Ooh sounds like a good read. Steamy!
(Sarah Keery 7:58am July 9, 2009)
I like when the tension increases, for the words fly by, the pages flip fast until the reader has a breather and can't hardly wait for the next excitement.
(Alyson Widen 9:14am July 9, 2009)
Happy release! :D Your book sounds fun. The blog today was delightful, it made me giggle. :) Congratulations!
(Rachael Grime 9:33am July 9, 2009)
LOL. Great intro for your book. I am going to have to look for Object of Desire next time I am at the bookstore.

That kind of tension seems to make for very interesting sex

Love the sound of this book... how can you wrong with sparks!

Romantic suspense is a favorite genre of mine and I often find myself reading those stories in one day.
(Maureen Emmons 3:44pm July 9, 2009)
Your book sounds steamy, with lots of action.
(Robin McKay 6:02pm July 9, 2009)
Sex and suspense a great combination. God luck with your book
(Diane Sadler 8:11pm July 9, 2009)
Sounds like a good summer read.
Now all I need is the time to do some
reading. There is nothing like a
challenge and a little bit of danger to
put a little extra spark into a
relationship. Sounds like you did a
good job of including a lot oft\ that in
this story. Good luck with the release.
(Patricia Barraclough 9:28pm July 9, 2009)
Your book sounds great, I will be watching for it.
(Sharla Long 10:30pm July 9, 2009)
Sounds like the type of book I am writing now. Never thought I would be writing a mystery/suspense/romance novel in my lifetime. I'll have to read Object to find out how you pull off the sex while the hero/heroine are running for their lives.
(John Wayne Cargile 6:28am July 10, 2009)
Wow sound like just the one...
(Ann w 11:14am July 10, 2009)
