ARRA Nominees – Ros Baxter


ARRA Nominees – Ros Baxter

Okay, so this wee erotic sci-fi Christmas romance of mine (phew, that’s a mouthful), White Christmas, has been nominated in the Australian Romance Readers awards Favourite Sci Fi, Fantasy or Futuristic Romance.

And you know why you need to vote for this one?

Because this is seriously – seriously – the hottest thing I’ve ever written. I mean, I’m talking hot.

fire heart

But why should that make you vote for it?

Well, you see, I don’t normally do hot. My books aren’t exactly…amish

But maybe a little…

So, one might say I’m dipping my toe into the steamy waters of HOT. And while I’m liking how those waters feel, lapping said toe with their silky, wanton tongues –

– pause to fan self –


I may still need a little encouragement.

So. Here’s the thing. A vote for White Christmas, and all its filthy ice-cave fellatio glory, is actually really a vote for unleashing the inner wanton in all of us. Especially, you know…me.

But, really, it’s less about me, and more about the glory of the kind of boys who fly spaceships, fight bad ass aliens, and push you against a frozen wall so your nipples can feel the painfully sweet bite of the ice while he takes his great big…

Oops, sorry, getting carried away again.

Where was I?

Oh that’s right. A vote for White Christmas is less a vote against ‘shut the door and let’s imagine’ and more a vote for kiss-me-fuck-me-take-me-shake-me-make-me-COMEscreaminglikeabanshee.

If you get my drift.

That’s it really.

I’m sure there are other reasons. I mean, you know, there’s a lovely story. And the characters are sweet and layered as well as obsessively focused on getting their rocks off. And the Christmas thing is…you know…all Christmasy and feelgood and it really, really helps with managing the afterglow.

But what I really need right now is a little:

You go, girl, with your smexy alien ice cave hotness.

Wave good-bye to the blink-and-you’ll miss it love scenes that readers have to read twice to check they actually ‘did it’.

Don’t vote for me. Vote for Asha and his great big intergalactic…appetite.

Thank you!
Ros is also nominated for Fish Out of Water for Favourite Paranormal Romance.
