Intro: Marianne LaCroix

I wanted to introduce myself to everyone....I am Marianne LaCroix. I write erotic and sensual romance, and I currently have out 18 works of various lengths, from novel to short story. One of those works is STOLEN BY THE SHEIKH from Red Rose Publishing. I honestly didn't think a historical sheikh capture erotica would be something people would like to read. I just knew it was a plotline *I* would like to read. I always wanted to write a sheikh capture story, and this was it. That readers took to it was completely unplanned. It has been in the top 10 at Fictionwise (going up to #2--presently at #7) and in the top ten at AllRomanceEbooks.

My preferred genre is historical erotica. I love pirates in particular, but really, if you think about it, a sheikh who takes what he wants is very much like a pirate. Maybe that was why I enjoyed writing STOLEN so much.

I'd like to thank all the readers of my sheikh adventure as well as Wendi from RRP for planting the idea in my head in the first place. Thank you for allowing me to launch your Desert Rose line.

*grins* And for those of you who haven't had a chance to read her stuff-- do so. Mari has some great stories out there. I'm on the shopping spree moment--debating sheikhs or something other of hers. But I admit, I'm leaning to sheikhs!
