Five things about A Woman for Zachary #MFRWAuthor #Polyamory
A Woman for Zachary: What’s important? My husband and I write erotic romance together under our pen name, Adriana Kraft. Here’s a peek at what drives our stories:
Thing 1: PLEASURE.
Fiction writers fall under the occupational category of “Arts and Entertainment.” Naturally, we write to entertain – to deliver pleasure to our readers. This means whatever challenges we throw at our characters, we also want them to have fun. We write erotic romance to deliver a special category of fun – we hope our characters (and our readers) enjoy a range of sexual romps on the page that feed their fantasies.
Thing 2: AGE
We don’t think “fun” (sexual or otherwise) has any built-in age limit, so we often write characters well past their sleek and sassy twenties. Yes, the star of our Meghan’s Playhouse series has just turned twenty-one, but Josie is in her early forties, and Zach, with his distinguished balding head, is a handsome virile fifty-two. More power to them! We think they won’t disappoint.
Thing 3: AUTHENTICITY
We’ll let Josie answer this one. In a recent interview, she was asked what she would change about herself. Here’s her answer: “That question is more philosophical than you might intend. I like who I am, what I value, and how I live. I’m always striving to improve—to be more aware, more compassionate, more balanced. I hope that never changes.”
Thing 4: POLYAMORY
Polyamory means “many loves.” In A Woman for Zachary, it’s the experience of loving more than one person at the same time. Though the threesome in this story isn’t a “forever” combination, the love they share is real and palpable. It is because Meg stays open to loving both Josie and Zach that she’s able to see into them deeply and empowered to help them find each other.
Thing 5: COMMITMENT
All three of these characters are profoundly committed to what they care about. Meg, with a lifetime ahead of her, is committed to her career and knows she will move on. At mid-life, Josie and Zach have already lost precious time by not claiming their desires sooner. Can they commit when Meg is no longer present as their catalyst?

It’s New York! Broadway beckons, but Meg has more fun keeping an erotic triangle going with her current flame, Zach Cullen, and her drama coach, Josie Patrice.
Zachary Cullen has ignored Josette Patrice’s overtures for years, but she agrees to take on his latest protégé-slash-arm-candy Meghan Keenan in her off-Broadway workshop theater. Though the girl has incredible talent, Josie would stake her reputation on that little thing being a switch-hitter, like herself, and she doesn’t want Zach to be duped. Josie sets out to seduce Meg and expose her for what she is, but all bets are off when Meg turns the tables on Josie to hook her up with Zach.

“Your latest protégé does show promise, Zach.” Josette Patrice focused on the group of actors rehearsing onstage and avoided looking at Zachary Cullen as they stood shoulder to shoulder in the back of the small, semi-darkened playhouse.
Josie smiled. Was he pondering Meghan Keenan’s thespian talents, or her bedroom talents? Josie was certain the petite twenty-one-year-old would excel in both venues.
Not for the first time, Josie wondered why the highly successful fifty-something entrepreneur invested so much time and money trying to find the next Broadway star. Was it his ego, his desire to take young struggling actresses and help them make their way to New York City—specifically, to her? Or was it the side benefit of sex with gorgeous young women that kept Zach on the lookout for talent as he traveled from one business interest to the next? Meghan was the third young woman he’d brought her over the past ten years.
“She seems more wooden, less natural than when I first saw her in that little community playhouse back in Wisconsin,” Zach said, breaking the silence.
Lost in her own thoughts, Josie startled at the gravelly sound of Zach’s deep voice. It was that slow, strong drawl that had appealed to her since the first time they’d met. That, and his burning eyes that seemed capable of peering into her soul.
Josie wet her lips watching the stage lights bounce off the girl’s auburn hair, as if setting her afire. Had Meg been caught up in Zach’s vision for her, or in his nearly overwhelming air of masculinity? She had to admit his broad shoulders and tapered hips triggered her own lusty imagination. Damn. She hated the fact that she had difficulty ignoring his manliness, and he never even looked at her as a woman. Apparently, he only saw her as a conduit for helping his protégés advance their careers.
Josie squared her shoulders. At forty-three, she was hardly over the hill. She’d had her share of lovers. Given Zach’s lack of interest, she’d flaunted her female lovers before him. She felt her nipples pebble—maybe that had been a mistake. Zachary Cullen was not a man to be toyed with.
