Please welcome guest blogger Stacey Kennedy
When I first started out writing I wrote a nice urban fantasy romance with a bit of spice, yet it didn’t have explicit sex scenes, and I never used frank language. With eighteen books published now, I’ve come to discover that my muse is naughty!
I’m not sure what happened that made her decide to become so erotic, but I’m telling you she shocks me. There are times when I write a story, then come back to it a couple months later for edits, and I can hardly believe what I am reading.
So, I began to wonder the other day, what would happen if I had to read this in front of people? Would I be able to do it? The answer to that is, no way!! I would not make it through one sentence using some of those colorful words, nor could I read the passionate scenes the characters find themselves in. My face would be blushing and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t even form the words.
I’d love to hear what you all think—could you read your own work to a room full of people? And have any of you experienced a muse who loves gettin’ down and dirty, and seems to be getting more daring as time goes by?

A Warrior’s Witch
Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.
As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.
Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?
