Oldies, but Goodies. . .

--From guest blogger Kele Moon

Recreating classic love stories isn’t as easy as it sounds and it’s often challenging and rewarding in equal parts for a writer. Cinderella, for example, is a very popular theme that never grows old. The rags to riches stories where true love not only makes your heart soar, but also gives you a very nice happily ever after in the plush palace of your dreams. What’s not to love about that? The term oldies, but goodies was invented for romance!

Perhaps not as light as Cinderella, but still compelling, the Garden of Eden has always intrigued me. As a lover of ménage romance, the contrast between good and evil heroes and Eve’s affinity for the forbidden, it was too much to resist!

In my new book Beyond Eden, I posed the question to myself—What if the devil were the good guy?

Maybe giving into temptation is a good thing.

Set in modern day Tampa, three friends come together in the very emotional journey of Beyond Eden. These characters are just regular people, trying to live normal lives, but dark secrets and burning passions make it impossible. The mirror to the original love story is clear. The devilish Danny charming Eve to not only bite the apple, but to convince Paul to disobey his father and bite the apple as well. Beauty, true love, temptation, obedience and punishment are all elements to this erotic romance with strong BDSM elements.

While Danny, Paul and Eve’s story is their own the vein of the original tale runs deep. At the end of the long creative journey of writing Beyond Eden, I realized something--what happened in the garden of good and evil could have been one of the richest love stories ever told. It's the original oldie, but goodie!

Will you dare to taste the forbidden?

These are the kind of stories I love to read and when infused with D/s they are utter delights!

Kele Moon said...

Cathy! Thank you! I was really thrilled they put that one up on EC. I think it really does capture the thrill at the start of the story and the set up of the epic love triangle. . .

On goodreads. . . One of the reviewers has a pretty long excerpt too :D Such fun! The one she used is my second favorite, I think :D

Thank you again for being so supportive!


Kele Moon said...

Laura. . . That is true. . .When we get to put the D/s element into it. . . That makes it SO MUCH more fun! Almost to much fun to be allowed ::grins::

Thank you!

I love books with more taboo elements like BDSM. It makes you feel really naughty for reading and loving, but you just can't help it. :D
