Have We Met?

This is your intrepid, dirt seeking, fact finding reporter, Dakota Cassidy.

Yep, I'm back and I AM NOT promoting ANYTHING. You heard me, there is absolutely NO PROMO involved in this blog.

Not a lick.

I've decided that the authors of LSB made me break a nail last time (thus an expensive manicure was involved), I went on a fact finding mission and it's time to take a much needed break from their cruelties. I've suffered horribly, pulling teeth, getting dirty in the trenches of their dark secrets and this month, I was PMS-ing, so I skipped it in favor of a massage and a facial. LOLLOL

Alrighty, so I was reading a friend's blog the other day and she said that she could identify an author by their sex scenes in a book. She also said that she wondered if the frequency of one act or the other might be a part of the author's true sex life...

I know.


It freaked me out. It made me want to go back and reread all of my sex scenes to see if I'd written an excess of the oral variety and now looked like a meat whistle, blowing slut to the literary world at large. HAHAHAHAHAHA

At first, my face turned red. It like burned, cuz I kept thinking, am I predictable? Do my like 25 fans wonder if I participate in those sorts of lewd and lascivious acts on a daily (yeah, I wish) basis? Do they wonder if I do the nasty in a kitchen, on a boat, in a moat (no, no goat. LOL)? Here or there, or practically anywhere? Do I write the same thing over and over? Use the same words?

LOLLOL. It made me stop and think about what I was writing and how it's written. If I have typical words I chose to use when depicting the act of hanky panky.

There are many acts I've depicted too. Do readers think I've done it doggy style, on a kitchen table, upside down with my hands cuffed to the table legs while I sing Stairway to Heaven in round?

Ahem, I assure you, I have not. Well, there once was a chorus of Stairway to Heaven, but it had nothing to do with a kitchen table. LOLLOL

Do they assume because my heroines on occasion can be very bold sexually, that I am too?

HAH! As if. I'm the biggest scaredy cat ever. I mean ever. Look at me. Do I look like the kind of woman who would just walk up to a man and say, "Hey, stud, wanna?"

No, I say, but my heroines might.
Have done.
Kinda have done...

Do they wonder if I like , back door sex and menages?

Oh, wait, I haven't written those. Scratch that.

Do they wonder if I have a penchant for sex in the shower, on the beach, in a vacant house that's up for sale?

Looking back at al the books I've written, I began to think I could look like a real hot tamale (insert 'ho here), if anyone believed I actually indulged in what I write. Like a vixen, which I am soooooo not. Trust me. I don't have a vixen bone in my body.

Although, I'm not ruling out doing werewolves or vampires just yet. LOLLOL. I'm also not saying I might not like being handcuffed to a table. I just don't want it to be a table I had to put dinner on, ya know? Cuz I hate to cook.

So tell me, do you immediately know who wrote a sex scene if it's given to you anonymously, like in an excerpt? Do certain authors give you clues by particular words they use or phrases they tend to lean toward?

Here's the deal today. All ya gotta do is read the two excerpts posted and in the comments, just post which excerpt you think is mine by the number listed beside each excerpt. That's IT. You're automatically entered to win some GOOD stuff in a random drawing. Whether you're right or wrong, I'll probably put ya in the drawing anyway :)

Would I lie to you? LOL. Honest Injun. That's all ya gotta do :)

Until next time, when I've recovered from the hell that is the LSB author's dirty laundry( oh, how I suffer for you. LOL) and I can dig up some more dirt, be well, stay safe and enter that contest! Winner will be announced tonight at 9:00 pm eastern standard time.

Dakota :)

Excerpt #1

Removing the robe she walked naked into the bathroom and stepped into the shower. Her body ached for his touch. Turning on the water, she waited for the warmth to wash away the cloud from her mind. Her hands moved over her skin in soft, sensual strokes, teasing her nipples taut, the burning hunger in her pussy demanded release. She reached for the life-size dong on the shelf in the shower, closing her eyes she stood directly under the cascading water. Moving the dildo between her legs, she massaged it back and forth over her clit.

Excerpt #2

Feverishly, he suckled her, pulling her fingers toward her tight entrance. It seemed natural to let two fingers slip inside her warmth and this time, she did scream as he lapped at her and she moved within herself. Her nipples beaded tightly, as she slid in and out of her pussy and he licked every exposed surface. Her pussy clenched her fingers, riding them as his mouth strayed to her entrance. He joined her fingers, stabbing his tongue inside her, fingering her clit. Soft hair brushed her arms. His head moved to a rhythm all its own as he wedged his tongue into her.

Strong hands clutched at her ass, gripping the flesh tightly, tugging her to fit his mouth. Moving back to her clit, he buried his lips in her, licking, sucking and the tight tension, building to an almost painful need for release, snapped. Snaking outward, lashing at her pussy.

She rocked against him as she drew her fingers in and out, watching her body tense in the mirror. Her mouth was open, her body arched toward August’s head, her arm hidden between her legs. Using her other hand, she tugged a nipple, seeing her own surprised look as she prepared to explode.

Heat engulfed her, tearing at her flesh as she came, with him tonguing her clit and her fingers plunging deeply within her. There was no fighting the scream that ripped from her lips, as she shuddered, jamming her hips down on the hard surface.

Great blog.

Your blog is such a great way to start out the day! You made me laugh and say, I had wondered if you just have a vivid imagination or if you really try out all the positions before putting your heroine in them! I think #2....

You always manage to crack me up no matter what I'm reading of yours! LMAO Love the blog today, and I'm going with #2!! You rock!

Hello Dakota!
First off let me say, I love everything of yours that I've read. I have all your vampire and all your werewolf ebooks and they are just terrific! I can't wait each time I new one comes out!!!Hope there are lots more down the pike so to speak!!
I'm not sure about the excerpts you posted. I don't remember running across a hero named August but the consensus on the blog comments seems to be that #2 is yours so maybe they know more than I do. So, I'm going with the majority....
Thanks for all of your wonderful stories! Keep 'em comin'!!
Hugs, Robin Snodgrass

Dakota, ya said it yourself. Ya love the oral. Excerpt #2.

Made me wonder though, if readers thought you tried everything you write what does that say about the readers *blushing at the thought of their positions*

Dakota, you are hysterical! And, I mean funny..veeeerry funny... Your blog post made me laugh so hard. And, it brought back lots of good memories. *weg*

Dakota, excerpt # 2 sounds more like you, IMHO. What an interesting post, very thought provoking -- I think for some authors it is true, for others it is not.

Great blog, Dakota. Why is it that some people think that romance authors have personally "researched" what's in their books, but those same people don't ever think that a horror author or crime novelist researches their boosk by doing it in real life?!?

Love your blog. I'll have to come back more often.

Blogger polheber2 said...

Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb here...I think they are both your excerpts. How often do you see the word dong in an excerpt/book? There have been some WONDERFUL phrases in your books (my poor husband is now known as fucktard when he upsets me) I gotta say that only Dakota would have the moral fortitude to use 'dong' in a book. Which is why I LOVE reading her books!

12:17 PM  
Blogger Dakota Cassidy said...

ROFLMAO--fucktard, I love that word. It's crass and sooo mean, but I crack up every time I see it. LMAO

Definitely a diff guess, and thanks for popping in, babe!

Dakota, you are so funny. I always enjoy your Blogs so very much. I am going to pick excerpt #2.

12:23 PM  
Blogger Robin49 said...

Well Dakota I hope the second one was yours because it was hot!!!! So I vote for it! I love your writing because of the variety and humor. If your repeating the same acts over I haven't noticed. LOL. I guess if you did I must like them. Oh and I can see you trying out some of those acts to. :)

To many Robin's today!! So let me make sure I stand out:) I want to make sure you can identify me. LOL.

Hi! I've read quite a few of your books but while I see a certain style in the overall book and can generally pick out an author I like, can't say I've ever noticed it in the sexybits ;-)

I guess I'll have to read them more closely. As someone else suggested here, I think that you wrote both of the excerpts yourself and are just testing us!!!


12:28 PM

Well Ms. Dakota to start the day off reading excerpts to get us all HOT and BOTHERED. I love it...Keep them coming!! #2 Excerpt is more intriguing than ever.

Anonymous Yesyrubi said...

Your writing is super HOT, so I'll go with #2 cuz that one is sizzlin'. I loved your blog today, very thought provoking. But I gotta say, after I've read a good sex scene my first thought is "Have I tried that?" or "Do I wanna try that?" rather than "Has the author tried that?" But that's just me :-D
PS LOVE LOVE LOVE your wolfmates series

I love this blog! I enjoy coming here each day and reading everyone's posts. Thanks everyone.

Dakota, you make me laugh! I love your intro!!!

As to the excerpts...if I have to pick just one, I am gonna say excerpt #2.

Robin, I could NEVER forget you--you're number 8 in a fan legion of 25. How could I forget that? LOL--thanks for stopping by.

I am going to say #2. Great excerpt!

1:50 PM  
Blogger Cynthya said...

I'll guess #2.

Really I don't think that I could guess who wrote something just from a short sex scene. Some authors do have favorite words or favorite acts, but I'm (hopefully) too involved in the story to make a note that Author X has a thing for pubic hair or the word nubbin. :)

I loved your blog entry (and your books!)

1:51 PM  
Blogger Maura said...

I'm going for #2 :)

Course now I think I'll reread all your books (I think I even own them all) and see what I can find to recognize for sure in the future!

1:55 PM  
Anonymous Angel said...

Hmm.. everyone says #2.. but I just can't be sure darlin, so I'm refusing to pick. lol.

:Perk: Did I hear Vampires and Werewolves, Where can I get one?

moving right along, My entire sexual education came courtesy of the romance novels that I've read, I spent one summer reading nonstop, my mother lost count after 400 of her steamiest romances were read, (the sum of her collection, which I surpassed before I turned legal,:)

So If writers have tried all they write about, they must be very educated people ::nods nods:: After all I've only done half the things I write about, but my friends who have done the ones I havent said I described it right, so I must be doing something right.

Have a good day, will peek in later, work calls.

Jean--muwhahahahahahaha LOL

I'm guessing #2, although I think you are trying to trick us and you actually wrote both of them!
As for authors's doing everything they write about, I'm sure there are some out thre who have tried a lot to help with their writing, of course all in the name of research. Well, all I can say is "I'm jealous!" LOL

I know it's #2 Dakota, that sounds like so you. Ya never know on the table. Don't knock it till you try it. They do wash.

My hubby sent me this in an e-mail and I thought maybe you would enjoy it....

How Smart Is Your Right Foot?

This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you will keep trying
it at least 50 more times to see if you can outsmart your foot. But you can't!!!

1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with it.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the
air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!!!
I told you so... And there is nothing you can do about it.

Make sure you pass this on to your friends... They won't be able to believe it either!!!

My hubby enjoys sending things like this to me! Hope you like it too! LOL!

Roflmao Dakota you crack me up. And the sad part is if we wonder about you from what you write. Wonder what everyone thinks about us from what we read.
I am going with #2. Probably wrong its just been that kind of day. But that is my gut instinct so I am going with it

5:35 PM  
Blogger Jaynie R said...

lol - I'm with DC - I can't do the foot thing either. It just keeps going the same way.

...and I think she's tricking us too. Both those excerpts were written by the same person.

I just finished reading all the comments that have been left since my post at 10:03 this morning and I'm practically rolling in the floor! Everyone has such funny things to add to the blog! :)

Since posting this morning I've been to 2 bookstores and purchased enough books to last about a -- just 11-12 books. (grin)

I would hate to hear what people think of me by my reading choices - they are very, very ecclectic...but then, so am I...hehe

Dakota, the comments I made this morning are true! You are an extremely talented writer and we are all lucky that you are a published writer!! (by the way, still waiting on that check...hehehe) (wink, wink)

Have a great evening all!!

Should be #2 but #1 could be a trick because it's so different or maybe you just want to make it easy for us. *snorts*

ROFLMAO!, Dakota, Stairway to Heaven!!!

No, I cannot identify the author of a particular s** scene if it's given to me anonymously. Only repetative authors tend to use the same ones day in and day out. I have a friend who says that authors do have signature scenes be it s** or otherwise and that is what makes them stand out. I, for one, cannot identify even if it was to save my life. *hanging head in shame*

Thanks for sharing the shower scene. Let me just say that waterfalls and showers are a big part of my # 1 and only fantasy.

Excerpt # 2 is yours and that is just because I am going with the current trend here. Now, don't just say that you didn't write either of those :)

Have fun with al those scenes,

6:41 PM  
Blogger Dee said...

Dakota, you can be square by yourself (I can vouch for that) but I don't think you can sing a round (of anything, much less Stairway to Heaven) by yourself. Hmmm.

Definitely #2


6:45 PM  
Blogger Ayreann said...

Hi Dakota,

Love the blog post. *g*

I've got to go with #2 because it's more original, definitely sensual, and positively provided some hot moments for me. LOL

Whereas #1 really doesn't do anything for me at all. Least of all the sentence, "She reached for the life-size dong..."

It reminds me of that Molly Ringwald movie where the oriental guy saids something like, "I'm long dong silver." LOL

Now if "dong" had been used in a humerous fashion like the Molly Ringwald movie, and more sensual stuff had been included, then I would have said it was your excerpt because your books rock when it comes to the funny stuff. *g"

Very thought provoking blog -- I sure as hell hope people don't think my sex scenes are redundant and easily recognizable, but come to think of it all that astral sex has to be a give-away. Sigh. Now, I'll have to do more research. The sacrifices we authors make to make our readers happy.
