"A shudder shook him as she surrendered in his arms and he inched his throbbing shaft into her incredible warmth, uncertain how much pain he was going to cause her and desperate to lessen it. The time he had taken with her had eased his passage, and he felt her silken warmth tightly sheathing him, expanding to encase him. Twisted into knots of desire, his heart beating painfully, he eased himself into her until he finally encountered the fragile barrier."
As many of you may have heard, last Friday night, we at Orchid & Peach Cocktails gathered to host the event of the season. We threw a trivia night that put all other trivia nights to shame! It was glorious!!
But we digress, Friday was a night of fun, laughter, and penis euphemisms. The three teams that fought for the title of Grand Trivia Masters gathered at UTS to prove their mettle. Competing in four rounds, each team was challenged to answer questions based on the All About Romance Top 100 romances OF ALL TIME (with a few extras thrown in). Amongst our illustrious guests were representatives from Harlequin Australia who played under the name The Last Kiss. We also had paranormal experts from Galaxy Bookstor’s regular Thursday night book club, Misspent Youth. And finally, the night’s champions – Virgin Meatlovers with a Side of Hornypants, which consisted of librarians, PHD students, bloggers, and authors.
With a lot of social lubrication in the form of wine, the teams battled it out for book prizes and the honour of the win.
We’d like to put out a HUGE thank you to the people who supported us and came along, as well as our generous sponsors (thanks Harlequin and HarperCollins!). A special thanks to Book Thingo for letting us crash their site for promo reasons, as well as Galaxy Books who let us attack their mailing list for similar reasons, and Vertigo for the use of their fridge!
Keep an eye out for news of our next trivia event later this year!
Julia is such a lovely, funny lady. She also recognised Rudi’s famous romance shoes! The high tea was amazing - I think more romance author-reader events should involve high tea. Can that be a thing? Can we make that a thing?
Or know anyone going?
I’m currently making my way through her backlist, trying to read as much as possible before the event. Less than a week to go!

That is a horribly disturbing simile. It’s not delicious. It’s not delicious at all.
(Also your blog is amazing!!!)
