Today we’re dishing on bikers, booty, and being bad to the bone with Cara McKenna.  Cara’s other romance persona, Meg Maguire, has a cute ole anthology out called WILD HOLIDAY NIGHTS.  Meanwhile, I’ve gotten sucked into the world of her Desert Dog Series starting with LAY IT DOWN.  

Lucky ducks–I’m giving away one print copy of each book—LAY IT DOWN and WILD HOLIDAY NIGHTS to a few happy elves who leave a comment for Cara below.

Cara McKenna writes contemporary romance with the explicit feisty sex we’ve come to associate with erotic romance—but her intricate plot does not depend on the sexual relationship.  Because I love sex AND a lotta plot together, to me Cara’s the whole package.  Let’s jump to the nitty-gritty.

MADELINE IVA: Cara, is a bad boy really bad, or is he just misunderstood?

CARA McKENNA: These days, the biker subgenre is really pushing the envelope…

Sexy Older Men–AKA The Daddy Figure

Model Steven Ritts has a whole new career these days–as the older guy.

By Madeline Iva

Occasionally, the guy who runs OkCupid.com shares interesting statistical factoids from his dating site.  One statistic: women tend to think the ideal age for a man is the same age as herself. For example, if a woman is 21 then her idea of the ideal age for a man is 21.  If she’s 35, then it’s 35, if she’s 50, then it’s 50.

Men, on the other hand, all think that the ideal age for a woman is 21.

I am not surprised.  Never have I been so hit upon in my life as when I was around that age.  Nine-tenths of the men were older–around thirty or so.  They saw a young woman alone in the world and wanted to take care…
