Play Is It True with today’s guest Adriana Kraft, author of Seducing Cat (Meghan’s Playhouse, Book 1), an LGBT Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.
First, tell us about your book.
What could college English Professor Caitlin Shanahan ever have in common with the brash carpenter Kurt Davis? The sexy sprite Meghan Keenan, that’s what.
Level headed English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has finally earned tenure and purchased the century-old two-story house of her dreams in the college town of Burntside, Wisconsin—at thirty-four, she’d better face facts: her future is teaching college and writing plays, not falling in love. So why is she so drawn to foxy little hometown actress Meghan Keenan, who’s rented her upstairs apartment, or worse, to the girl’s gorgeous hunk of a lover Kurt Davis, a carpenter who’s never even been to college?
Twenty-year-old Meg has a plan. First she’ll seduce the reluctant professor, then she’ll share her sexual delights with both Cat and her brawny carpenter, and when she’s successfully brought them together, she can make her escape and explore what’s beyond the only town she’s ever lived in.
Kurt can’t stand the up-tight professor who’s hired him to build a gazebo and refurbish her old house—the house he wanted for himself. Even if Meg’s scheme succeeds, he knows Caitlin would never look at him twice. No need to go there in his fantasies…

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.
Is it true:
this is your first book?
No. Our first erotic romance was published in 2007, and we’ve never looked back. With the release of Seducing Cat, we now have a total of 40 novels, novellas and short stories published.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, though it didn’t start out that way. We planned Seducing Cat as a one-shot erotic romp, intending to create a structure to maximize tantalizing erotic scenes. But once characters are created, they take on a life of their own…There are now a total of six books in the Meghan’s Playhouse series, and Seducing Cat is Book One.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No… Unless you count research. See below:
you did research for this book?
Um, yes, but it might be TMI. We’ll just say we’ve learned a great deal about the polyamory lifestyle Meg thrives on. We like to keep readers guessing!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. The century-old four-square house Cat has just purchased plays a central role. It’s modeled on a house we loved and left (had to move) in the Midwest a few years back – 3300 square feet, a central oak staircase, beveled glass windowed double doors to the dining room, living room, and the solarium beyond… So we’ve made the house immortal in Seducing Cat. Without it, Meg wouldn’t have a place to live, she’d never have succeeded in seducing Cat, and Kurt’s path might never have crossed Cat’s.
this book has more than one genre?
Not really – Erotic Romance, pure and simple. Some sub genres, though – LGBT, polyamory, and Ménage. Both Meg and Cat are bisexual.
you speak more than one language?
Yes—and since there are two of us writing together as Adriana Kraft, I’m going to cop to all of them: Besides English, between us we have French, German, Spanish, and a mystery oriental language. I’ll let readers guess, but I might or might not answer truthfully.
you grew up where you live now?
No, neither one of us. We now live in the southwest. I grew up on the east coast, and my husband in the upper Midwest, where we set a lot of our stories, like Seducing Cat, which takes place in Wisconsin.
you love to read?
Do you really have to ask? Mr. Kraft’s parents used to get mad at him for finishing all his Christmas books by the end of Christmas day. I once didn’t hear the rest of the family call me to come downstairs for ice cream because I was buried in a book. And both of us as children sneaked flashlights to read under the covers after we were supposed to be in bed.
you are never late?
Mr. Kraft will laugh at this one! He is never late, and I am pretty chronically a little late. I always think there’s time to do one more thing before we head out the door…
you love pizza?
Yes, if it’s locally made from fresh ingredients and not from a chain restaurant.
you love sushi?
No, neither of us!
you have a pet?
No. A sadness—we used to.
