Unusual Places to Make Out

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!


  1. Willbe interesting to hear if you do meet the man of your dreams while crusing the Nile. I say to everyone, watch this post!

  2. If he's really hunky, Paula, but married, just have a great fling. Then tell us all about it!

  3. I love the desk idea. Good luck finding your dream man...I hope you come back truly inspired!

  4. Didn't meet any gorgeous hunks :-( - too many posers and pot-bellies LOLOL! But did get a few ideas for settings - the sun deck of a Nile cruise ship for starters!
    Watching the sun rise over Lake Nasser at Abu Simbel would also be great- except for all the tourists there (all mad fools like me who got up at 2am (yes, 2am!)to catch the first flight from Aswan to Abu, just to see the sun rise. But it was worth it!
