What better way to show your love for your fellow November release Escape authors than to barrage them with silly questions? Author Victoria Black submitted with both good grace and humour.
Rhyll: You’re invited to a tentacle erotica party. Do you attend? What wine and nibbles do you bring and what do you wear?
Victoria: Okay, I am slipping into fantasy land here, where I have friends who would hold such a sexy party, and where I have the courage to attend. Ah, yes….
Yes! Of course I would attend. In my figure-hugging (this is fantasy, remember), black leather jumpsuit that reminds one of a very sexy seal. Okay, a sexy seal doesn't have too much to do with tentacles, but I'm trying to picture myself arriving dressed as an octopus with tentacles dangling everywhere, and I just don't see erotica, do you? The nibbles I bring are, of course, crumbed calamari. Plus Crystal champagne, bought at Dan Murphies at the bargain price of $299.99 for the bottle. You do get the image of bubbles and the sea?
Rhyll: Identify how a Thighmaster could be introduced into foreplay.
Victoria: God, I love these questions. Off to the fridge for another glass of wine…
"Darling," he murmured, as he removed my All-the-Way Support Pantyhose, "your thighs are…"
I giggled. "Oh, you're so naughty, Roger…um, Fred…"
He frowned. "Joshua."
"Oops, sorry. Yes, Joshua. Oh Joshua, what are my thighs like?" Smiling, I stroked the gentle line of my true love's generous tummy. My heart beat hard. More or less.
His pale blue eyes gleamed as he dragged a strange blue contraption out from behind his back and tried to flex the two halves, joined together by a black spring, towards each other. "Darling, your thighs are so…"
Oh God, what was that thing? What did my sex master want to do to me? As I grabbed another handful of Cheezels, I gulped, round-eyed. My heart beat…I tilted my head…sort of quicker. Maybe. Though heartburn sometimes did that to me…
Okay, that's enough, I don't want you getting too turned on now.
RHYLL: Who’s sexier, Cthulhu or T-rex? Why?
I have to admit, I had to google Cthulhu. But are you kidding me? Cthulhu, of course. All those long, dangly things in front of his face. And his brain half-exposed. And those two, huge bulging eyes.
Fanning myself now.
RHYLL: Thanks, Victoria!

Her latest novel Unexpected Places releases on 8 November with Escape. http://www.escapepublishing.com.au/
When sweet, pretty Ariana knocks out wealthy CEO and treasure hunter, Luke Donahue, with a champagne bottle and steals his treasure map, he vows to get his map back, find the missing priceless emeralds – and exact a fitting revenge.
When he finally discovers Ariana in a dingy hotel on a remote tropical island, she’s in desperate straits and he finally gains the upper hand. Of course he will rescue her. His price? They act on the attraction that’s been simmering between them from the very beginning.
But all is not as it seems, and Luke’s sexy bargain turns up not only an unbelievable secret, but Ariana’s reasons for wanting the emerald. Suddenly, nothing is clear cut anymore, and map or no map, Luke and Ariana are sailing into uncharted territory.
