I should explains that Tim Tams are Australian chocolate biscuits that have to be eaten to be believed.
I saw a line in a book that went something like this -- 'She thought it was about as likely as an orgasm on a one night stand!'
This was an urban fantasy, with a strong female protagonist, who obviously knew what she liked. Romances are comfortable exploring emotions.
We write books, ranging from fantasy, adventure, SF and through to mystery. But somewhere sometime, someone is going to fall in love. How comfortable are you writing love scenes?
How far do you go? Do you close the door after the first kiss? Are you uncomfortable going into detail?
I was on a festival panel when someone asked me what was the most moving love scene I had ever seen/read. It made me realise that the scene was from a movie set in 1890. She was a widow, he was a married man, with a cold wife. He didn't want to fall in love with her. There was a scene where they were in a carriage. He lifted her hand, peeled back her glove and touched his lips to the pulse of her wrist. It was powerful because of what wasn't said, or done.
What love scenes have you read/seen that moved you?
