Scandalous secrets from a Romance Book Club revealed
What happens behind the scenes at a Romance Book Club?
May 15, 2013 - Verbena, AL - Ladies gathering for a weekly book club meeting discussing romance novels might not seem like headline news, but what those women decide to do because of their curiosity just might shock you. With the latest boom of Mommy Porn titles filling up the bestseller book charts, author Michelle Hughes decided to blow the cover on how far some women were willing to take their obsession with the new fad. Long walks on the beach were not included in the information Hughes chose to highlight.
In her new novel, Romance Book Club released by Tears of Crimson Books, Hughes explores the sexual adventures of a fictional character who finds more heat in a dungeon than behind the pages in a book. The author claims the experiences are based on reality, while clarifying that the names and places have been altered to protect identities. Hughes would not divulge the true location of the fictional book club the story was based upon, citing the need for privacy for people who participated in activities that are still not fully accepted in many communities.
After arriving at a dungeon club to research the real lifestyle of BDSM, Jessie meets the owner and is invited on a personal tour of sensual debauchery. For a young woman with no previous experience in this setting, the leather clad lifestyle intrigues her. She discovers a world that surpasses all the parameters in the books she's read on the subject, and is forced to make a decision on whether to step into this situation, or keep her interest hidden behind the written word. The subject matter is watered down to fit into the romance category, but the portrayal of kink is embedded behind the flowery words giving a unique insight into this greatly exaggerated topic.
Hughes stated that the misconceptions about the lifestyle, and the people that choose to pursue it, is inaccurate at best in current pop culture books. The majority of fiction books released under this genre show emotional issues of characters that encouraged them to seek out the sadomasochist side to find fulfillment. Hughes claims that this novel was created to show that normal, everyday people without a traumatic childhood can also find satisfaction in this exploration of passion when they enter their adult lives.
Tears of Crimson Books is an independent publishing company founded by author Michelle Hughes. To date, several bestselling books have been released under this umbrella.
