Oh dear, my couples so far have been very unadventurous, making out in bed. The nearest I got to somewhere interesting was in my short elevator story, posted a while back on this blog.
In my defence, I will say that, in ‘His Leading Lady’, Kyle and Jess’s first foray into lovemaking was at Kyle’s Scottish tower house on the shores of Loch Awe, while in my about-to-be submitted ‘Fragrance of Violets’, Jack and Abbey consummated their love in the penthouse suite of a very upmarket hotel in Paris.
So far, in my WIP, I’ve had Lisa recalling the time she and Paul made love in a secluded copse on Hampstead Heath in London! Maybe I can think of somewhere interesting for them when they finally get together again. A yacht on Lake Windermere – but we don’t want it to capsize, do we? At the top of a Lake District mountain? But not sure how I could get them to either of those places. So how about love against the desk in Lisa’s room at the college where she teaches? Hmm, that’s a possibility.
I look forward to reading your ideas – but a paradise beach somewhere doesn’t really appeal – unless they have a very large blanket. Think of all that sand getting in – erm – places where it shouldn’t (ouch!).
And even on grass somewhere – what about the ants? (another ouch!)
I’ll be in Egypt when Margaret posts this blog for me – so maybe our Nile cruise ship will give me some ideas. Forget ‘Death on the Nile’. ‘Romance on the Nile’ could be a good title – maybe I’ll meet this gorgeous man on the cruise ship?? I’ll let you know!
