Angie’s List of Kickass Smut

I had a blast writing this post for Fresh Fiction from Angie’s perspective!


The heroine of My Reckless Valentine, Angie, wrote this annotated guide to some of her favorite erotic romances before meeting straitlaced Grant Peterson, her hero. I think she was planning to use the list in one of her library displays, but then changed her mind after—

Well, I don’t want to spoil the book. Never mind about that.

P.S. While My Reckless Valentine is a bawdy romantic comedy, rather than an erotic romance, I still thought my readers might enjoy this glimpse into Angie’s fevered brain.

An Overly-Revealing Interview with Angie, Heroine of My Reckless Valentine

I wrote this post for Mary Gramlich’s blog, and I had a blast doing it. The poor interviewer never stood a chance against Angie.


Note from Olivia: I apologize in advance for Angie’s salty language and her graphic references to sex acts and/or sex toys.

More importantly, cleaning up her language and removing sexual references would mislead you. Angie’s not classy or demure…so this interview isn’t either. Ye be warned!
