Keyt drew himself from me and lifted me from Dax, carrying me toward the dying fire. I couldn’t believe the emptiness was hurting more than their filling me. Every abused part of me wanted more, no needed more, like I was starving, too hungry to think.

“Our pheromones. You’ve got no defense for them, but you will have once the moon cycles, little kitten.” Keyt kissed my forehead. “Come, Dax. We need a bath.”

No defense of pheromones? I had no idea what he was talking about. The blood pumping through my veins, burning me from the inside, was getting so loud and distracting. “What have you done to me, Keyt?” Moisture blurred my vision, and a thick knot formed at the base of my throat.

“Hush, little one, you have no idea what you are, but you will soon, my love.” Keyt picked up a bar of soap off a shelf and dropped it on my belly as he carried me out the door.

1 sentence quote:

Naked-guy looked like he was studying me, tilting his head, and then his lips parted…was he panting?

3 sentence quote:

“I can’t take you like this when you have no idea.” His breathless words made no sense. His body was trembling like mine. He wanted me as much as I wanted him.


Welcome to Darkest Cravings, tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hello Darkest Cravings: ) Thank you for having me at your place…and quite the place I might add…lovely, in a dark, seductive way. It’s a pleasure to be here.

I’m Kay Dee Royal, writer of erotic romance in a few genres—paranormal, contemporary, fantasy—and I like to tap a little deeper into the darker-side of erotic romance, or maybe it’s better to say I’ve evolved into what I’m writing today.

I enjoy nature, hiking, fishing (because I like to float in a boat), RV traveling (because my husband is exclusively mine:), editing, and writing. Southwest Michigan is my home and I love experiencing seasonal changes…it totally hones in on my state of mind *LOL*

Writing adult fiction isn’t for everyone, how did you end up writing for the toughest audience?

It happened quite by accident – an aspiring author asked me to ghost write her sex scenes…which I’d never written before, but loved reading them. Once I started writing those scenes, something took over my pen, along with my mind *LOL* Extreme satisfaction and even empowerment came from that experience…and I wrote my first story in the genre I love most – Big Girls Don’t Cry Wolf (paranormal erotic romance).

Most of the intimidating parts of being an adult fiction writer is the steamy scenes, how did you overcome the “stage fright”?

As mentioned above, it seemed to come naturally…and using a pseudonym keeps me anonymous to those I don’t wish to offend. I haven’t done any face-to-face book signings, but I’ve enjoyed many virtual tours and chatting with readers and other authors. I’m actually a shy person…but virtually, well, somehow it releases those wallflower ways of thought: )

Which fictional character would you like to go on a date with? Why?

Keyt Darkly is my newest crush – no inhibitions, loyal, respectful, protective, and truly sexy and knows just how to satisfy an itchJ

Your favorite adult fiction books are?

I love Kate Douglas’ Wolves series…and my newest joy is a number of series by Alix Richards. That woman knows sensual erotic romance and her scenes sensitize many emotions…and her words, what can I say, she’s good: )

Do you think adult fiction has reached its full potential yet, or are we still in for a huge surprise?

What I do know is it has flooded the markets…but that gives everyone huge exposure…and in my opinion has gained the genre new readers. Can there really ever be enough of a good thing? *LOL* Things are changing for sure…evolving, who knows where or if it will end…all I know is that I’m riding the train until the last stop…and then I might not choose to get offJ

We all have a treasured possession, what is yours?

A husband who believes in me and supports me…but when he attempts to guide me, well…that’s a story for another day *grins* Where’s the whip??

Are your characters based on real people or did you create them from scratch?

Gosh, I like to think they are their own person…as in many different characteristics from people in my life, books I’ve read, movies I’ve watched, and ultimately parts of me too.

Do you think adult fiction helps improves relationships?

As a writer of it, I’ve come to think of it as personal therapy *LOL* But, yes, knowing more about what satisfies a man or woman is quite educational…and let’s face it, there’s a lot of kinky stuff that no one would even consider trying…unless somehow it is validated. I like to write about healthy relationships…loving relationships, and yes even kinky ones, but as long as there’s trust and respect, loyalty and authenticity, the open door seals the deal…right? Takes it right home…to the reader: )

If you have to pitch adult fiction to someone that’s too shy to read it, what would you pitch?

My pitch, “Yes, there’s sex…and maybe a lot of it, but there’s also love, stirring emotions, a story that backs and promotes the relationship. In fact, if you’re not careful, you could learn a thing or two from it…and actually enjoy the story-stars.”

What is your motto?

Wild abandon might just set your inhibitions free.

Why did you choose to write Paranormal/Fantasy?

I absolutely love reading this genre…and I enjoy making the rules for my beings/creatures.

There is a lot of biting in your novel, are you a biter yourself?

Perhaps on some level I am…in reality, I succumb.

What creature/species do you think makes the ultimate lover?

A shifter alpha who mates for life – and is aroused at all the right timesJ

What is your favorite creature/species?

Any kind of shifter…a “were” anything – love those mate-for-life alphas and all those crazy pheromones they carry around.
