An Interview with Lexi Post

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000030_00038]What genre(s) do you write in and why?

I write erotic romance inspired by the classics, so I write in a number of genres. Currently, I am writing Paranormal, Contemporary, Contemporary Cowboy and Sci-Fi.  It all depends on where the original story takes me.

Tell us about your current series.

The Eden Series takes place on Eden, a planet of naked, well-built men. Their ancestors were taken from Earth by the Crius to populate the warm jungle planet, but these humans developed different abilities based on their Kindreds. Unfortunately, no females are ever born on Eden (their scientists are still working on this), so the men use Crius technology to go to Earth and find women open to the idea of life on other planets. Because there are so few women on Eden, each one must have at least two husbands or “beloved.” Not a bad place for a woman 😉

The first book, CRUISE INTO EDEN, shows how two men woo their Earth woman on a nude cruise. The second and newest in the series, UNEXPECTED EDEN, takes place in a jungle hideout on Eden and the men have no time to woo their chosen one because she is in danger on Earth. So the three men save her and her friend, which causes another whole set of issues.

What is your next project and when will it be released?

LexiePost_CowboysMatch_600X900My next book, COWBOY’S MATCH, is coming out August 4th as part of the 12 Alarm Cowboys box set. This book is the second book in the Poker Flat series.

Cowboy, Cole Hatcher, never thought becoming a firefighter to support his horse rescue ranch would lead him back to his first love, especially at the Poker Flat Nudist Resort fire. As soon as he sees Lacey Winters, his gut tells him she’s to blame but long buried feelings ignite and he can’t stay away.

Lacey is shocked to find the hunky firefighter is the same man that dumped her eight years ago. Though her heart is guarded, Cole is just too hot to resist and a night of erotic passion tears open old wounds.

Determined to prove Lacey started the fire that divided them, Cole leaves to investigate the past only to find more than he bargained for. Unfortunately, so much damage has been done that he’s not sure he can catch both a fire starter and the heart of the woman he never stopped loving.

Where do you get the ideas for your stories?

As I said above, I write erotic romance inspired by the classics. For example, I used Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” as inspiration for my book MASQUE. I don’t retell the story, I get inspired by it. So in Poe’s story he had seven colored rooms. In my story I made each colored room a different sexual experience for the heroine. Then I took the figure of the Red Death and made him my hero who had good intentions that went horribly wrong. Then I left 73 of the original masque attendees as ghosts in my story and added a modern day heroine who buys the abandoned abbey. This all necessitated I write this story as an erotic paranormal romance. Each classic inspires the genre I write in. It’s fun because I never know where the original will take me!

BannerDo you have critique partners?

I have a critique partner who is worth her weight in gold. I also have a tough beta reader, an awesome editor and a picky proof reader. I also have a critique partner for my blurbs and author notes. And for whatever area I need expertise in, I reach out to friends, family and experts to be sure I get the facts correct. Every one of my books is a group effort as can be seen by my dedications and acknowlegments.

What is your favorite dessert/food?

I’m an ice cream-aholic. I even go so far as to make my own ice cream every weekend. I made mocha Heath bar crunch this past weekend. My favorites are Bailey’s, Malt, Cherry Vanilla, and Passion Fruit.

What genres are you drawn to as a reader?

I love reading historicals, paranormals, contemporary cowboys, sci-fi and time travel romances. I won’t read anything but romance and classic literature now. And don’t ask me to watch a movie that doesn’t end happily because I won’t do it, no matter how hunky the actor is who stars in it 😉

What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on a paranormal erotic Christmas story set in contemporary Scotland. This one will be part of a series and I’m doing something completely different with it. I just hope my readers will like it. Luckily, I have friends in Scotland as well as a daughter-in-law from Edinburg, so I have experts to tap.

Having achieved your goal to be a published author, what is the most rewarding thing? 

Hearing from my readers. I love it when readers really enjoy one of my books. I also love it when they tell others about them or when they tell me they have a “book hangover.” That is the ultimate compliment because it means someone is still so attached to my characters and their story that they aren’t quite ready to pick up another romance. That’s what I now shoot for with every book. Hey, a girl’s gotta have a goal, right?


Khaos dropped Serena’s hand, the emotions roiling through him difficult to contain. No one ever asked about his family. He moved away from her, unseeing. The pain he kept buried daily rose up and closed his throat. Family was not a comfort to him but a source of anguish. The image of his mother’s gaze as she looked at him with disgust and fear flashed through his mind and he balled his fists.

Desperately, he forced himself to swallow. Don’t let her see your shame.

“Khaos?” The touch of her hand on his shoulder sent a shudder through him. She was happiness and love. Everything he craved to give her. He couldn’t let her see he wasn’t worth hers in return.

He should turn around. Smile at her. Not yet. She’ll see it in your eyes. He forced his fingers to relax and crossed his hand over his chest to grasp hers. Soft. Delicate. Some of his stiffness eased. “I didn’t know you were close to your family. Do you miss them?”

Her other hand rested on his arm. “Sometimes. Well, mostly when I’m afraid or unsure. They’re like a comfy blanket. You know, a safe place.”

He closed his eyes as he envisioned what that might be like. Serena wrapping him in her arms was the image he envisioned. His lips twitched and he turned toward her. “I hope you consider being with us a safe place too.”

“I do now. At first I wasn’t so sure. I mean, you came out of nowhere. But you saved me and you’ve welcomed me into your home. I’m very grateful.”

He stared into her round amber eyes, so large for her delicate face and so honest. He wanted more than her appreciation. He touched her cheek hesitantly, watching for any sign of withdrawal.

She turned her face into his palm and his heart skidded in response. To love her, touch her everywhere, would be paradise. He wanted her to look at him with need.

She broke away. “I think we should get to work, don’t you? We have a few items on our to-do list and Jahl, Toni and Sandale could arrive at any moment. We don’t want to be caught with our pants down.”


She looked at him, her gaze wandering down the length of his body, causing a rush of blood to flow to his groin. Her gaze stopped on his stiffening cock.

She swiftly raised her eyes to his face. “Never mind. Let’s just try to focus on what we need to do.”

He allowed himself a crooked smile. That he distracted her sent a warmth around his heart. Maybe Sandale was right. Maybe he could be worthy of her.
