Hi. I’m Opal Carew, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I write erotic romance for St. Martin’s Press, and I self-publish stories. I also write romance as Amber Carew.
So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a female character who is growing and evolving—questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. My stories usually include menage a trois. It is great fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes… or more.
These aren’t women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation—something exciting and erotic—but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back—of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves—and we don’t follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.
