Suite Up!

Suite Encounters: Hotel Sex Stories, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and released in both paperback and e-book form by Cleis Press, officially drops tomorrow, June 12. Featuring steamy stories by Delilah Devlin, Remittance Girl, yours truly and more, it's a wild ride through an array of inns, motels and hotels, with all sorts of sexy hook-ups.

I don't get to stay in a lot of hotels myself, but I have been to the LVH, where my short story "Surrender with a Twist" takes place — and I wish The Star Trek Experience was still there! I've stayed at the Tropicana in Atlantic City, various airport and convention hotels and three of Disney World's deluxe resorts. (Can you beat a hotel that has giraffes grazing outside the windows? I honestly don't know!) I hope to travel more in the future and could definitely use a few recommendations!
I have one copy of Suite Encounters up for grabs. Leave a comment by 12 PM on Friday, June 15, with your favorite place to vacay or staycay, and you'll be entered to win it!

U.S. and Canada residents only. Winner will be chosen by random number generator.

  1. My recommendation for a great hotel resort is the Montage at Laguna Beach. The view of the ocean is stunning; their pool is huge; the spa is to-die-for. The rooms are big, with great tubs. I love my bubble baths there. The beach is at the bottom of the cliff, and the local shelters have been known to release some seals from there. Always a great place to stay and relax. And if you can squeeze in a little romance, why not?! Enjoy. --maria

  2. Maria, that sounds absolutely divine! Thanks for the description, and for the comment!

  3. One of our favorite places to get away is Ogunquit, Maine--I've actually set a hotel sex story there, though it's not in this book. There, we found the most memorable if not the favorite lodging we've stayed in so far: a "honeymoon suite" that started life as a 32-foot mobile home, but now boasts a round bed, mirrored walls and a (tiny) heart-shaped hot tub. Charming in a kitschy way, and those round beds do lend themselves to amorous acrobatics--if not to comfortable sleep!

  4. Sounds great! I'm more of a B & B type than a hotel person.

  5. Teresa: I always associate Ogunquit with The Stand and Frannie Goldsmith. That honeymoon suite sounds hilarious!

  6. My favorite place to vacay is New Orleans, but I also love going to California. I've spent a lot of time there, in my fair share of hotels, although I mostly stay with family and friends. Weston hotels have the "heavenly" beds and showers, and they're not misnamed.
