Hello Emma — thanks for taking the time to answer our questions.
ENE. What do you think makes a GREAT erotic story?
EP. A GREAT erotic story, like any other story, needs to engage the reader. It has to draw them in and create an image in their minds that they can relate to and visualize as if they are the ones playing out the scenes. In Erotica this becomes much more vital since as a writer, I want my reader to connect with my characters and experience the events as they unfold. Imagination is a powerful tool.
ENE. Tell us more about “Soul Mate’s Touch”. Is it your first Paranormal Erotic Romance novel?
EP. Actually I have been writing short paranormal stories and also other genres for quite some time. Soul Mate’s Touch is my Debut full-length book. I began writing it as a novel about a year and a half ago. The whole premise behind the book is actually several months of plotting out a completely alternate history of how man, life and the Earth were created. There are many interesting characters in the book that play a major part in the evolution of this story, which I am still expanding on.
As far as this novel, it is about Romiel the leader of the gargoyles and his human mate Joyce Davis. There is a blurb and an excerpt following this interview.
ENE. How do you keep motivated and inspired to continue writing?
EP. I love it. Even if I were not published, I would never give it up. My imagination is always running amuck and I find inspiration in the simplest of facets of every day life. I read a lot and I pay close attention to what’s going on around me. There is a story in just about everything you see, smell, taste and touch.
ENE. Do you ever get tired of writing erotica? Do you write in other genres?
EP. Most definitely, although Erotic Romance is my preferred genre. I have a romantic streak I suppose, that needs to be quenched. However, I have written Science Fiction, Contemporary and some Non-Fiction stories without the romance or sex.
ENE. Who, in your mind, is begging to be written next? What can we expect next from Emma Paul?
EP. I have several projects that need attention. I have just completed a Sci-Fi Erotic Romance that I am trying to get published. I also have another Paranormal Erotic Romance, which is an adult version of the story Rumplstiltzkin. That is nearly complete as well, and I have already started plotting the next book in the “Soul Mate Series.” I’m hoping to give my readers what they want in all these projects.
ENE. What’s your favorite sexual position?
EP. That’s easy, all of them!
SOUL MATE’S TOUCH
by Emma Paul
The tender look on Romiel’s face, the understanding in his eyes only caused more indecision. Romiel lifted her chin with a crooked finger, so that her eyes met his.
“I don’t know what the future holds; only that it is unwritten. Times change with evolution. Gargoyles were never meant to be; yet here I am. I can’t change how vampires and demons sustain their immortality. But I can change my own actions.” He wrapped his arms around her, pulling her close, “Let me show you Joy, that your life has meant more to me than my own.”
Joy stiffened in his embrace. Her eyes searched his face, finding only simple sincerity. She relaxed, and wrapped her arms around his waist then laid her head on his chest.
Her quiet sobs ceased after a while. Romiel pulled back a little and looked down at her. She blinked several times sniffed then stood on her toes to place a small kiss on his chin. “Romiel?”
He brushed a stray brown curl away from her face.”Yes…”
“I…” she couldn’t remember what she was going to ask. This close to him, wrapped so securely in his strong arms felt undeniably right. And that scared her.
His eyes blazed with desire.
She saw tenderness in them that touched her on a level far greater than physical. Not really thinking, Joy placed her hands on his chest, feeling his heartbeat beneath her palms.
Romiel bent his head and their lips touched. He lifted her tightly against his body, so that her feet dangled for a moment before his hands cupped her ass. He encouraged her to wrap her legs around his waist. Not breaking their kiss, Romiel took a few steps until her back was pressed against the bedroom wall.
Tiny bursts of energy traveled through her body. Joy secured her arms around Romiel’s neck and deepened the kiss. Her lips parted, inviting him in. Their tongues intertwined, undulating, tasting one another in a rhythmic dance. Slowly, he slid his hands over the contours of her torso, first down then back up.
The feeling of his large hands stroking her body, made her tremble with heightened arousal. His touch was sublime. Moisture gathered in her pussy. She squirmed trying to press her heat against him.
Joy moaned into his mouth. Her breath hitched when he left her lips to place a line of soft kisses and tiny licks down her neck. His teeth nipped the pulsing vein on her throat and sent shivers of pleasure down her spine. Oh yes. This felt so right.
She ran her hands down his back all the way to his ass, and squeezed, pulling his pelvis against hers. The hard thickness of his cock molded against her wet folds through the fabric of her shorts. Her body undulated against his.
Numbing pulses caused her pussy to swell with tingling sensations. She moaned, trying to open herself wider to the sweet friction his cock delivered each time it rubbed that one spot.
Wetness dampened her panties, making her wish she could just rip them off her body and feel nothing but Romiel’s smooth hardness stroking her aroused flesh.
Romiel rolled his hips against her. His lips crushed hers with a passionate kiss. This time he was demanding, urgent. He rolled his hips in a back and forth rhythm, simulating deep thrusts. Low growls reverberated from his chest.
His hands squeezed and caressed her ass and thighs, running up her back, touching as much of her as he possibly could. She loved it. Sighs of bliss slipped past her lips. Tension built. Raw, burning need controlled her.
He pulled back, “Joy, tell me you are mine, bond with me,” the guttural rawness of his voice vibrated through her.
She opened her eyes. Staring back at her was no longer a handsome human face; it was Romiel’s angular gargoyle face. His eyes were yellow rimmed with red, and although she could see a rugged handsomeness in these features, her mind still reacted with fear. “I…I can’t…I’m so sorry!” She pushed him back and ran into the bathroom, slammed the door and slid to the floor.
Soul Mate’s Touch Synopsis:

And only the touch of a true Soulmate can free him. The moment that Joyce touches Romiel, she knows there is a strong bond between them. Although she tries to justify why loving a Gargoyle is wrong, her heart, soul and body refuse to listen.
Together she and Romiel face an uncertain future, as evil forces are unleashed on the unsuspecting humans. In the midst of an ancient war between the immortal vampires and demons, Romiel must unite with an old enemy in order to protect the human race against certain annihilation. As their love for each other grows stronger, Joy and Romiel must face evil head on to save humanity and the Gods themselves.
