Sex and Mirrors-and a Giveaway

Sex and Mirrors

Kitty, thank you for having me for a visit. I’m very excited about my latest erotic romance, Passion of Sleepy Hollow. “Excited” being a key word 😉

I have found in writing erotic romance that each one of my books has a particularly special sex scene. It was never a plan as every sex scene should be special, but for some reason one in particular stands out…at least for me.

In Passion of Sleepy Hollow, that special one is the first mirror sex scene. This one is particularly touching. Why? Because Katrina Van Tassel is a busy woman. She runs the Sleepy Hollow Inn by herself with only a young man to help. She is forever greeting the hero in a jam-stained apron with flyaway hair that refuses to stay in her braid. She doesn’t think about her appearance, but rather about the many tasks she has to get done and when she has to do them.

The Kiss

Braeden Van Brunt throws Kat’s routine off track. While she is off balance and naked, when her attractiveness shines brightest in his eyes, he introduces her to the beauty of her body, something this 18th Century woman has never stopped to think about, never mind examine. Using a full length mirror, Braeden shows her every amazing inch. Of course, he completes the session by having her look at herself after he has satisfied her. The scene doesn’t end there, but that does end the first mirror portion.

Is there another? Oh yes. As Braeden and Katrina are from two different times, I had to give them two different mirrored sex scenes, one historical and one modern. But the question remains, how can two people from two different time periods have a happily ever after? As it turns out, only by putting the past to rest. The only problem is, the dead don’t necessarily rest in Sleepy Hollow.

Always, Lexi

Excerpt from Passion of Sleepy Hollow

For such a tough lady, she could be so sexy when caught off guard. “Would you unbraid your hair for me, Kat?”

“My hair?”

He smirked. “Yes, your hair. You know. Those long, blonde strands you keep tied at the back of your head.”


Had no one made love to this woman? Had no one ever shown her how beautiful she was? “Do you have a hairbrush?”

“Of course.” All bustle again, she moved to her chest and pulled out an old hairbrush. “Do you need it?” She glanced at his head.

He probably did, but that wasn’t what he wanted it for. “In a minute.”

He set down the lantern, picked up a straight-back chair that sat against the wall and placed it facing the armoire. Opening the floor-to-ceiling piece of furniture, he centered the chair across from the large oval Victorian mirror. “Sit.”

Puzzled, she started to obey.

“No, wait.”

She froze in place.

“Take your nightgown off.”

“My what?”

“That long shirt you’re wearing.”

“You mean my shift?”

He nodded.

“But I don’t have anything on underneath.”

He let his smile grow. “Exactly.”

The blush that rose to her cheeks transformed her from beautiful to a glowing goddess. “I can’t do that.”

He stepped next to her and took the brush from her hand. “Yes, you can.” Without giving her a chance to think, he grasped the edges and lifted the garment over her head. She lifted her arms and allowed him to have his way.

She was all curves, and seeing them for the first time all at once was breathtaking. He moved the nightstand closer to the chair so the lantern would illuminate her clearly. Then he took her hand and guided her to sit, forcing himself not to touch all the places he craved. This was about her.

Once she was seated, he moved the other lantern from the floor and set it on her bureau. When he turned back to look at her, she was bathed in a yellow glow.

Her gaze met his and the uncertainty he witnessed made him want to crush whoever had made her think she might be anything less than gorgeous. He forced his body to relax. She could simply be shy.

Best way to help that was to distract her. Without hesitation, he unfolded the towel from his hips and set it on the floor to the side of her.

“Braeden.” The word was a whisper.

Passion of Sleepy Hollow Blurb

Recluse Braeden Van Brunt is not happy to be the Headless Horseman…until he meets Katrina Van Tassel, owner of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, whose allure bewitches him from the front desk into the bedroom. When he discovers Kat and the village of Sleepy Hollow are cursed to exist in the present day for only one weekend a year, he realizes the sacrifice he must make if he wants to keep her.

Katrina Van Tassel lives between slivers of time. She thought she was through grieving her betrothed’s death, but her dreams flare to life when his mirror image arrives, requesting a room. Drawn to Braeden, she is taken to more erotic heights of intimacy than she ever imagined, but she can’t be sure if her heart is with him or the love from her past.

Knowing he must conquer both time and ghosts to keep the only woman he’s ever loved, Braeden must put the past to rest. But the dead may not rest in Sleepy Hollow.

    One of my favorite classic short stories is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I like how each author keeps the basic plot but changes it. Can’t wait to read this version.

    I have to admit I only read your question after I posted before. One of my favorite versions of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is Deanna Wadsworth’s m/m version. When Ichabod and Brom discover their mutual attraction, it is hot and memorable.

    I would love to read this. I’ve read so many different scenes but I think JR Ward’s “in the tree” scene takes the cake. 🙂
