Responsible Romantic Heroes Use Condoms

Some readers prefer heroes to use condoms while others say the dose of
reality kills all the spontaneity and romance. It's a debate that
repeats all over romance land--to use condoms or not to use condoms--
since, after all, it is only fiction...

New Zealand erotic romance author, Shelley Munro took this a step
further in her upcoming release Fancy Free, the story of an accountant
who inherits a condom company. When Ms. Munro caught an Air New
Zealand flight from San Francisco, she came across an advertising
article about a new condom on the market. The ideas flowed and by the
time she landed in Auckland, she'd outlined her plot for Fancy Free.

It's not every day a girl inherits a condom company, and to say
accountant, Alice Beasley is astonished and out of her depth is
putting it mildly. For an almost virgin, she needs a quick education
in all things condom because her inheritance is in danger. Someone is
intent on sabotage and playing nasty, trying to destroy her new

Alice is suddenly getting down and dirty with charismatic James, the
factory manager, all in the name of business, testing new condom
designs. The sex is hot. Mind-blowing. It's a dark thrill and an
erotic journey. Yeah, it's a hard job but a girl's got to do what a
girl's gotta do.

The testing turns personal. Alice wants James. She craves his talented
touch and sultry kisses, she desires passion and physical pleasure on
a permanent basis but first she must convince bad boy James to give up
his fancy free ways.

Note: condoms were tested and a few harmed during the writing of this

Fancy Free releases on 7 March 2008 from Ellora's Cave and is Ms. Munro's eighteenth release from the pioneer erotic romance publisher.

From the time Shelley Munro was a little girl living in New Zealand,
she wanted to be a detective. She read all the Famous Five mysteries
by Enid Blyton before graduating to Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. Her
favorite television viewing was Scooby Doo where she, in her invisible
guise, helped Scooby solve the crime.

As happens with children, Shelley grew up and boys distracted her from
childhood dreams. She found one she really liked and married him,
traveling the world at his side until returning to settle in New
Zealand to write hot and spicy tales for Ellora's Cave, some of which
contain the odd body or two.
