A year or two ago I discovered Heather Rainier. I've read a handful of her books and I enjoyed the crap out of them. I have a level of appreciation for their stand out quality. If you've never read one of her books, I will tell you now, her books have a fabulous dichotomy.
The plots are set up in true contemporary country western romance style, full length and heavily character driven.They'd be much like other quality country western romance novels, if she stopped there. What makes her different is she takes it three steps further going full scale menage mix-up erotica. There's lots of hot graphic sex, butt plugs, menages, sometimes up to three guys, sometimes just a H/h, follows no formula, and lube.
Lots of lube.
The lube thing is kind of what makes her stand out for me and why I love her so much. Sure, her heroines have a realistic work schedule and personalities that makes them affable, but it's their acceptance of lube that makes them so darn effable.
I know what you're thinking; Aubrey, almost all erotica writers use lube for anal scenes. Yes, yes they do. But do they use it for vaginal scenes?
Could it be?
That's right. Heather Rainier doesn't just break out the lube for anal scenes, she uses it for a good chunk of her vaginal penetration.
She used lube last night
She fully grasps sometimes the hormones are blowing the wrong way and the down stairs isn't matching the enthusiasm of the dirty den of thoughts rocking out in the upstairs.
She gets that!!!
So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Heather Rainier for lubing up your heroines. And thank you for not making your heroines shy about it. They don't blush and stammer their way through apologies while reaching for the lube. They rock their vaginal hubris, get lubed up, and ride their cowboys.
As nature intended.
Heather Rainier has a whole slew of Divine Creek novels I haven't even begun to make a dent in. I believe there are eighteen of them in all. The characters are in or around the town of Divine Creek, Texas, and often know each other. I'm not sure if there is an order. I've just been picking up the ones that sound the most interesting to me.
The heroes are the type of sweet loving attentive men you want to read about after your husband blows up food in the microwave, your dog pees on the floor, and your kid then steps in it. And you don't find out any of this until the food is crusted, you too step in the pee and your kid has put his soiled sock on top of the clean clothes you just took out of the dryer.
We've all had those days. These are the heroes for those days.
They are often good old boys, but never bad boys. Not in a 'treat the heroine like shit' way. They exude alpha without always needing the power dynamic play or exuding asshole tendencies. They sex you up, without ever letting you down. In other words they are bubble bath fantasy heroes that will have you drooling.
And wanting more.
Thank You Heather Rainier,
for the Heroes and the Lube!
