That led to lots of hilarity, but also started a group of us talking about types of love scenes. I contend that there are three basic romance love scenes. (We're talking the normal male/female two person love scene)
1. Hero in power - usually on top, heroine's legs possibly up by her ears.
Variant A - from behind. That's always hero dominant, IMO, because she's usually face planting somewhere.
2. Heroine in power - She's on top, he's restrained either physically or by his own laziness, er, choice to let her go explore.
3. Squidges make a Box (aka 69) - the most famous of which (in my opinion) is one where the hero is standing and holding the heroine up by her ankles during the event. Yes, he's a vampire. And yes, he's trusting that she doesn't bite down during orgasm.
That's it. Three basic love scenes. There's infinite variety within those basics, but really...what else is there?
Well, the other authors brought up a host of other possibilities. There's the mutual shared power love scene where it's more of a give and take within the scene. I had to admit that those exist-after all I've written a bunch of them-but that's just a couple who can't decide between my one and two. Also mentioned were the funny/giggly love scene (those are fun!), the toy scene (because you can't beat sex with a cyborg), and of course the paranormal scenes. Shapeshifter hotness allows for infinite variety and potential fur in the wrong places!
So help us out! Can you think of other types of love scenes? Get innovative! A lucky commenter will win a Squidge plus an advance copy of WHAT THE GROOM WANTS.

68 - she owes him 1!!! lol!
Ummm...kinda drawing a blank here. Maybe side by side? Against the
The teenage sex scenes of sex in a car or on it.
How bout up against the wall, fall in floor exhausted. I've read a few in carriage or riding a horse sex. That raw, hard, last forever kind.
Looking forward to reading one of your books.
Maybe... sitting in his lap facing away from him.
I love your posts! Wonderful man chests!!!! But your books are good too! LOL
The quickie in the linen closet at a party or the wall or
In a public place, like a private theater box.
Great, fun post! Side-by-side does seem to be a variation, since neither party would be dominant.
Very funny everyone! (I especially love 68!) Keep 'em coming!
LOLOL I got nothing new. But loved your post. Bahhaha
LOL Laughing too hard to think of any that haven't been mentioned. . . .
Constantly changing- -Rolling across the bed or floor where the shaft power shifts- control of the relationship goes back and forth
The girl bound with the man pleasuring her. ;-)
In the garden folly or summer house during a house party.
When she goes down on her knees to pleasure him because she has heard servants talk or a friend tell her. Or, she gasp and wants to refuse to let him pleasure her with his mouth.
I liked in "What a Bride Wore" when she "turned around, arching slowly bent over. She bared her bottom to him-". That is not a usual position in a Historical Romance unless he turns her around and bends her over.
Keep up the sexy men pictures on Facebook. I share with my sister although she follows your page too. My 16 year tells us how gross we are...lol!
I love historical romances and especially yours Jade. I have several of your books and have re-read them often!!

The only one I can come up with is long distance. You can use your imagination here by what I mean. :-) Have a very Happy Valentine's Day!! I love the cover, and can't wait to read your book!!
I love your books, Jade! How about in a stopped elevator, up against the elevator walls and floor?
Lol... reading this post and comments made me laugh! Thanks for sharing!
The photos and the comments are hilarious. Thanks for the great laugh.
Side by side, facing each other, one leg over. Love your little Squidges!
Let us be a lady and gentleman and do it calmly and lovingly!
Skype sex? In that version the internet provider is in control. LOL
On the formal dining room table!
i love the siting on top of him facing each other or picking
I love the pictures. I kind of chuckle at them.
Love all your books so I naturally look forward to reading this one. It's a must!!!
I love historical romances and love the cover. Thanks for the giveaway.
You always have the most beautiful covers. Congrats on another
Guy sitting, girl with back to him in control. She can set pace! ;)
The cover scene is excellent! It really makes me want to read it!
I think maybe side by side or, the always awkward, mÃ©nage is the only thing you missed. I love the illustrations with the Squidges. They're both adorable and dirty.
Love the cover and your books. Thanks for a chance to win.
Hmmm, let me see. Side by side and sitting on him seems to have possibilities. Rolling
For ideas on more sex moves, keep an eye those squid gets. They must
Mile high club?
That was so funny. I read a cowboy story a while ago. I had
spooning (her back to his front); a woman on something like a counter or something with the man standing. :-)
A personal favorite... against the wall!
I remember once when my husband was on his way out the door to go to work, we both got abruptly hot and bothered. Up against the closet door did just fine, but it wasn't long enough! And at the same time, I found I worried about the windows in the front door, yes they were up high, but someone might have seen his head bobbing. The time, man has always taken his time, didn't know he could do a quicky! And the wood floor, I was in socks and kept slipping. Thankfully he had a good grip on me. Oddly, you never read these issues in a book. Yet my mind was consumed with them. ;-)
Just a mix of all three.
