Dice & Debauchery

I don't often feature erotica on my blog, but I want to recommend a geek-inspired book with more than a passing connection to D&D. My good friend, Christine Rains (member of our Untethered Realms group) has written Loose Corset, Book 1 of the Dice & Debauchery series. (Isn't that a great series title?) Continue reading for a post by Christine on how D&D inspired her, and her great giveaway.







Dice and Debauchery, Book 1

A weekend away at a convention is exactly what overworked student Morgan needs. Dressed as her character from her favorite online game, Morgan is braced—seriously, could her corset be tighter?—to meet the other players. As Lady Gyrfalcon, she’s ready for everything—except her intense attraction to Dean. A clandestine meeting in the hallway of the hotel and Morgan’s corset is looser but now she can’t breathe for entirely different reasons.

Utterly charmed, Morgan decides to roll the dice and indulge in a fantasy-worthy weekend of sexy roleplaying, scorching sex and life-altering orgasms. Still, through it all Morgan is too smart to believe the chemistry constantly stripping her of costumes and control can last more than the length of the convention. But if she wants to keep a relationship so intense she thought it only existed in fiction, she’s going to have to let go of her cool-headed logic and allow herself to fall far and fast for the perfect guy.

How Dungeons & Dragons inspired Christine:

I wish I could say I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) since I was a kid, but I wasn't so lucky. My husband is that nerd. One of the first things I did when I met him was play D&D with him and his friends. I fell in love. With him and the game.

Since then, I've played countless hours as brave rangers, steadfast clerics, and wild berserkers. I have an awesome collection of dice and characters. I've sat down on solo quests, with a small group of good friends, and with large groups strangers at conventions. Never once have I been bored or disappointed. Even the most lame stories created by a Dungeon Master (DM) can be made fantastic by the players.

The game itself has aroused many stories in me, but it is the players that inspired my Dice & Debauchery series. These people hiding behind their game books and dice are some of the most fascinating and creative folks you'll ever meet.

I confess I like to be behind the DM screen. Not because I like to be in control – every DM knows that if they think they're in full control of the game, the players will remind you that you're not! – but because I love creating worlds and watching how the story unfolds as the players take on their quest. I'm a voyeur peeping over the top of my screen and eagerly awaiting to see what they will do when faced with the next challenge.

There are characters that run blindly into battle just wanting to hack and slash. Or those that check for traps every step. Don't forget the highly skilled that devise elaborate plans, and of course, those who go totally off-track and end up in a tavern demanding more ale.

I watch the people behind those characters. The geeks playing footsie under the table where they think their affections go unnoticed. The gamer who memorized all the rules but can't remember where he left his house key. The shy nerd who blushes when a guy smiles at her, but she becomes a fearless leader in the game.

Where are their stories? I want to read them. Books about gamer geeks are sadly few in number. So I wrote my own series.

D&D has inspired many writers over the years. Great fantasy tales fill bookshelves because of this incredible role-playing game.

Geeks are sexy. It's time for a story about the players.
