Amid the rubble of defeat will Hell’s
Genesis Queen dawn
“I like the way you move, kitten.”
She took a deep breath, like she needed
the extra oxygen to deal with him. “Did you square away the angels in Hell?”
“Yes.” Details weren’t necessary when
they both knew he’d instituted a brutal torture regimen for all of them. “Dance
with me?”
“To this music?”
“You didn’t appear to be having any
problem.” He held his hand out toward her.
She stared at his palm. Her expression
was reminiscent of an individual confident selling their soul was a reckless
choice but entering the deal anyway.
“I don’t bite.”
Her gaze felt like an impact against
his. “You did in Hell.”
He wrangled the grin under control.
“Then I won’t bite.”
“I don’t think it’s a good idea,
A casual shrug when nothing about her
body language suggested she felt relaxed. She crossed her arms beneath her
breasts. “Nix says my idea of dancing is sex with clothes on. He couldn’t
tolerate it and if he couldn’t….” She trailed off and gaped at him as if she’d
just realized she’d been about to insult him.
Micah grinned. “I haven’t lived as long
as I have without executing restraint.” He stepped closer to her. “I’ve
controlled myself with you more than any other.” Because she is my woman and
deserves my respect.
Madison allowed him to pull her arms
free of their defensive fold. Holding her gaze, Micah coaxed her into his
embrace…left hip to left hip, his leg thrusting between her knees, gliding
upward and parting her thighs.
She bit her bottom lip. Her breathing
grew shallow. The heavy beat of the music thumped around them. His pulse
throbbed faster.
Hell’s delights, she felt fantastic
against him.
“Relax,” he said when she remained
inflexible. A soft wind would break one of her bones. “I only want to dance
with you.” Like when they’d been married, just a different manner of movement.
This one more intimate than what they normally partook.
Her focus locked on his jaw, and she
sharply inhaled when he slid his palm down her back and settled on her hips. He
executed the first moves and she followed. As if magnetized, they gyrated in
perfect synchronicity.
Gracen is a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a “normal” person in southern society. When not writing, she’s a full-time basketball/lacrosse/guitar mom for her two sons and a devoted wife to her real-life hero-husband of over twenty years. She has an unusual relationship with her muse, Dom, but credits all her creative success to his brilliant mind. She’s addicted to writing, paranormal romance novels and movies, Alabama football, and coffee…addictions are not necessarily in order of priority. She’s convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and when blending coffee and writing together it generates the perfect creative merger. Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs and Dom’s aggressive demands. Gracen writes is multiple genres—paranormal romance, paranormal erotic romance, and contemporary romance.

Guest Post: Using Details to Your Advantage

Please welcome Joanne Troppello, author of the newly-released Bella Lucia, to the blog!


Using Details to your Advantage


In my life, I’m a very detail oriented person. However, when I write, sometimes I forget about the details because I’m too excited to write the story. Details are very important—sharing too much information might bore the readers and not sharing enough could leave the readers dissatisfied, wanting to know more.


As with so many things in life I believe in finding balance in the usage of details in my books. I’m learning to meet in the middle and add more than what I did before because I was lacking in my presentation of the story.



Sophie absently listened to the girls’ conversation and sat down at the table. Her love of architecture and design drew her eyes up to admire the big arched windows close by. She liked the secluded area where the host seated them. She took a quick survey of the surroundings and noticed the ceiling, at least thirty feet high. Massive arched and squarewindows lined the parallel walls. The chandeliers sparkled beautifully and that light combined with the sunshine made a glorious sight.


Alexander came over and interrupted her thoughts. “This was the hot spot since the eighteenth century. I bet you didn’t know that.”



Admiring the great architectural design of the room, Sophie sat down at the table and absently listened to the girls’ conversation. Alexander came over and interrupted her thoughts. “This was the hot spot since the eighteenth century. I bet you didn’t know that.”


Which example do you think best utilizes detail? I’m sure we’d all agree the first one does. Without going on forever, the first example gives just enough detail to pull you into the scene; whereas the second example leaves you wanting to know more detail about the “great architectural design of the room.”


How can you utilize details to your advantage? You can be stingy with your details. What? Wait a minute, you say. I know I just got done sharing that you shouldn’t skimp on details. To clarify, you need to value each and every detail you include as if it were a gold coin. You don’t want to include details just to include them. Really, every word we write should have a good reason behind it for why it’s included in our novel.


So, if you want to tell the reader that someone is wealthy, should you write?


Jasper Jenkins was

 a very wealthy man.


Or would you go with option two?


Jasper Jenkins drove his BMW (or whatever other luxury car you’d like to include) up to the iron gatehouse and punched in the security code. The gate opened and he drove down the long, tree-lined private driveway. He came to a stop near the Italian fountain and exited the car just as Nigel, his butler, came rushing down the front steps to assist with carrying the luggage inside the sprawling mansion.


Remember that you are creating the movie or word picture in the reader’s mind. Of course, the reader will create his or her own picture while reading—but the point of being an author is to give the reader all the details he or she needs to see the picture you want him to see…in order to correctly portray every aspect of your story in the best possible way.


Where do you stand on details? When you read, do you like to know as much information as possible or do you think less is more? For the authors, do you load on the details in your books or keep it simple?



After being married for six years, Gwen and Lucas DeStefano are dealing with the pain of a childless marriage and trying to trust God for their future.
