When you think about it, romance novelists are high-keyexperts at setting the mood because, well, it's their job to do so. To get the scoop, I talked with romance novelists Jasmine Guillory, Stephanie Evanovich, Laura Lee Guhrke, Jill Shalvis and Josie Silver about how they write their sex scenes. The most important thing that each of the authors stressed was how setting the scene is about the mood from start to finish. For instance, Guhrke explains that her characters never magically jump into sex without a long period spent building tension between the two characters. And, this, she says, can work for you too! Evanovich reminds readers to never underestimate classics like some sexy whispering in a lover's ear. And, honestly, I would be like super surprised if you read any one of these author's scenes and didn't blush.
