I’m Brandi Quick and I write Romance novels for www.XoXoPublishing.com . I don’t write just Romance novels, but Hot, Erotic Romance novels that are steamy—very steamy. There is a difference between porn and erotic Romance novels. I do not write porn. However, when my hero and heroine close the bedroom door, I do not cut to the ocean crashing against the rocks. I want my readers to feel his touch, to smell his erotic essence. If I don’t feel his lips on mine and on my body, I rewrite the scene.
My latest novel is The Feather of Pleasure.
Have you ever meet Mr. Right only to find out his rightness doesn’t extend beyond the bed? Well, that’s what happened to Jenna Cartwright who had put her personal life on hold to build her career. Who hasn’t done that at one time or another in their career? Jenna was quite successful becoming the manager of the payroll department in five years. While she wasn’t looking for Mr. Right, he turned up on her very door. Or was he really Mr. Right? Phil Cooper was hired as the assistant manager of the accounts payable department. They met at the Monday morning staff meeting and hit it off from the start. They got each other’s jokes when others didn’t, they laughed when others didn’t. After dating a few weeks, Phil moved in with Jenna, agreeing to split the bills. Jenna soon finds out Phil is not only a loser, but also a user, when he refuses to pay his share. He moves out of her place and in with Jenna’s archrival without warning. Jenna is devastated and goes to her local bar to be with friends and that’s where she meets the real Mr. Right—Ted Cummings.
Brandi Quick is my pen name.
Why use a pen name?
There are a couple of really good reasons.
My stories reflect some highly personal and erotic experiences, and I don't want to make my readers who know me to be uncomfortable when we see each other.
Through the years my closest girlfriends, as well as boyfriends, and I have shared experiences I know I would not want to see the light of day. Right out of college four of us shared an apartment in Atlanta, Georgia. Back then, we met some very interesting boys and men. Men I would stay in bed with all day long, but not be seen in church with.
My characters are often based on, or drawn from, real people - enough said.
