Adriana Kraft is the
pen name for a happily married pair of hopeless romantics
who love to read and write hot sex. By day we’re
serious academics with backgrounds in social science
and human services. At night? Possibilities seem endless
and we love coming out to play. Our erotic romance novels
celebrate more than consensual mind-blowing sex –
we feature strong story lines, heroes and heroines you’ll
fall in love with, passion, and profound connectedness.
Our specialty is bisexual heroines. Our stories lift
up the dilemmas faced by women who deeply want it both
ways but won’t be denied the right to commitment,
true love and a happy ending, sometimes with more than
one special partner. While that may sound serious, it
also permits us to get into swinging, voyeurism and
ménage, great opportunities for being playful.
It’s rather challenging at times to describe all
the possible entanglements.
Longtime social activists, we like to take on stereotypes
and challenge social barriers of all kinds, so it should
be no surprise when our characters do the same. Ageism
is near the top of our list. We think sizzling sex isn’t
just for the young. Though we write characters in their
early twenties (Meghan Keenan comes to mind), we have
heroes and heroines in their forties, fifties and beyond.
Something else special is that we’re writing for
both genders, offering scenes that partners might enjoy
together. We often read scenes we’ve written out
loud as part of foreplay, and we hope our readers will,
too – or, as one reviewer suggested, keep “a
bucket of toys close at hand!” It may take longer
to finish the book, but we believe a good book is meant
to be savored.
