Sundae With Nuts - Desiree Holt

August 17th, 2014

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Desiree Holt!

Sundae with the Nut Desiree Holt!

1.Favorite knickers: cotton, lace, silk or errr…leather?
Ooh! Silk with a little lace.

2.Who is your fantasy male or female? Or both?
How about two males?

3.What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Spanish. I really think it’s the language of love. I have a lot of Hispanic heroes and they have some very sexy phrases.

4.What vehicle, abode, beach, construction site or other locale did you lose your virginity.
OMG! Well, I hope my kids aren’t reading this but on a blanket at the beach.

5.Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes. Still do.

6.If you could play a board game during sex, what would it be?
Scrabble using only erotic words.

7.Any special “toys” you’d like to give mention to for their outstanding achievements?
A proper collection of vibrators can do wonders for your sex life, especially used together.

8.I *heart* Peter Cetera. What song immediately swoops you back to your “first days” of falling in love?
This will really, really, really date me and I’ve got more than one song: 
I’ve Got You Under My Skin by Frank Sinatra and When I Fall In Love by Nat “King” Cole 

9.Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
Acapulco and Bermuda, my two honeymoon destinations. Dancing in the waves at moonlight and drinking champagne.

10.Who was your first crush or kiss?
Hi name was Jackie, we were twelve and when we kissed goodnight our races locked. My dad had to come downstairs and unhook us. Bummer!

11.If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
After Cd I’ll call my kids and open the $150 bottle of champagne chilling in my fridge for a special occasion.

12.I wanted to be a helicopter pilot and a cowgirl when I grew up (still do). What did you want to grow up to be when you were a little girl?
A movie star, Boy, that dream died in a hurry!

And last but now least.

13.Favorite ice cream flavor.
Coffee, coffee, coffee.

Ah, another Friday evening getting my Nut post ready, and it's an absolute beaut here in northern Michigan. Listening to the Nat King Cole link and the sun is just setting. Nice. Plus, I just got back from holidays, so feeling (a bit) refreshed and refueled. Tired as hell, but a good tired. Now, where is the wine?

This Sundae, I am totally chuffed (Irish = beyond excited) to have the lovely Miss Desiree for my Nut. She's a bloody legend in romance!! I feel I want to slag her like the rest of the Nuts as it is a bit of a rite of passage, but do I dare? LOL. No, probably not. A bit starstruck, I am. 

Miss Desiree, fab answer for #2, and even though the Nuts has been going now for years, it's an original! Now tell me, any two particular fine specimens you have in mind? Because I'd love that visual. And I don't know if its my change coming or what, but I've had some seriously kinky dreams lately. That just will add fuel to the fire.

Love your twist on Scrabble. Well played, Miss Desiree. For #10, how mortifying for you! Any boner that young man had swiftly vanished, I expect, with the approach of your father. But what a great story to tell NOW. :-) And yes, yes, please call me when you get approached for a movie and I'll pop over to share some of that champers.

Known the world over as the oldest living author of erotic romance, and referred to by USA Today as the Nora Roberts of erotic romance, do give it up for the lovely and talented Miss Desiree Holt. Her latest release, FINDING JULIA, with Lyrical Press/Kensington Publishing is just as hot as the rest. I know because I've read it!


  1. I had a nice chuckle over #10, though I am certain it was mortifying at the time, LOL!. Fun interview, Desiree, and kudos to all your successes!

    1. I know it! It's something you might see in a movie. I've heard of it happening, but I thought it was more of a urban myth. LOL Well, Miss Desiree is proof.

  2. Love, love, love that Nat King Cole song. Now it's going to be in my head all day and I promise not to complain. Great answers, Desiree. Cd, welcome back from holiday. I hope it was grand.

    1. I know, I had it up high volume when I was putting together the post on Friday night. With a nice glass of red wine, it was a great end to the day.
      I'm in full force starting tomorrow. Can't believe holidays are over! It was fabulous. The boys had a ball. In fact, youngest is still sleeping in car from the ride up from GR. I'm outside waiting for the wail. LOL

  3. Fun interview! Perhaps you could elaborate on #7 a bit more? I'm curious about the "used together" part. LOL.

    1. I know - me too! Oh, Miss Desiree? Do you feel inclined to elaborate? Or perhaps point us to one of your books that might enlighten us :-)

  4. Whoo hoo! Another coffee ice cream lover! That's what I want when I celebrate. Forget the champagne. :)

    1. Me too! That's all I ate for one whole year, and with my ice cream background (yes, my folks after 38 years are STILL running an ice cream shop), that says a lot!

  5. Having had a few special private emails with Desiree, I know she'll be a good sport for any teasing! Just ask her about her barbie dolls. *snicker*

    I loved her answers, but I still say if you have to play any board game during're doing it all wrong! LOL

    1. Oooh, I definitely will! Barbie Dolls, that's very...interesting. Thanks for stopping over Calisa! I'm off to yours now. xo

  6. Great interview! The braces story is priceless--I also didn't think it could happen. LOL The answer to #7 makes me thing two ways--both people using them together or all the vibrators at once. Either would definitely be an experience. :)

    1. Hello Miss Jenna, you are so good to stop by. I must swing by one of your spots today. You're so good and all over the place, I always think - I'll get her next one.
      I'm still waiting for Miss D to give us the scoop on the vibrators. Waiting...

  7. Miss D, where is the pictorial tutorial for #7, complete with Barbies? :) As for #12, you may not be in the theaters yet, but you have starred in several video chats I have seen, and of course, in person!

    Mary M.

    1. Thanks Mary for stopping by the Nuts. Many of us were wondering the same for #7 - or at least if she could point us in the right direction in one of her books!

  8. I met the incredible Ms. Holt at Authors After Dark. She is an truly classy lady with a wicked sense of humor. I so want to be her when I grow up.
