I'm looking for books with a hero who "talks dirty" to the heroine.  I don't mean swearing or necessarily vulgar talk, but earthy frankly sexual talk to arouse the heroine. 

 

In my reading, I've only encountered a couple -- both coincidently named Michael-- Michael in the Lover and Michael in When he was Wicked (to a lesser degree).  I'd appreciate other recommendations on dirty talking heros.  Most men don't comprehend that a woman's largest sex organ is between her ears.

I think that some of Cheryl Holt's heroes are dirty talkers.

Ah, I do love me a talkative hero. No specific book comes to mind, though I always enjoy the sex talk in Lisa Kleypas.

I'm thinking it was "Absolute Pleasure", because the cover was blue and the hero was an artist.

One of the "devil" books, maybe the Irish Devil I think?  He was pretty frank with the heroine.

I've read several historicals that fit that description, but titles just aren't coming to me right now.  I'll do some looking and see if I can come up with some/

I know it's historical by definition, but I just can't put "The Irish Devil" in the same box with what I consider to be historicals.  Maybe it's because it's set in the West and not England.  And yes, he's a DT in that one.

I seem to remember that in Fiona Carr's The Kissing Gate, the hero talks dirty to the heroine. Also, I'm currently reading Madame Charlie by Sahara Kelly from Ellora's Cave and there a scene where said Madame Charlie is in her bath and the hero gives her an orgasm just by talking to her.

But I have found that in most books, the reader isn't really privy to the dirty talking. It ususally goes something like "He murmured in her ears, telling her in great details what he was going to do to her..."

As for The Irish Devil, although I have had it since it came out, I haven't gotten around to it yet. So I couldn't say.

Such a shame and a missed opportunity that the writers don't give us those little details.  I seem to recall that Sebastian in Kleypas' Devil in Winter was a bit of a DT.  Maybe that's why he's one of my favorites.   Can't find the Madame Charlie book in the system.  Do you have an ISBN, or better yet are you willing to share the book?

Sorry, but that one's a keeper. The ISBN is 1-84360-572-4. I just looked it up and there's only 10 people on the waiting list. Got mine at Half.com though. I think I paid $5 someting with S&H. The book is in pristine condition but for a clean cut through on the cover. Figured it happened when they opened the box.

Most of the books on my wishlist are from Ellora's Cave or New Concepts Publishing, and they ain't moving, except for people being added to the list. I have them all on my FetchBook wish list, and I figure in the end I'll end up buying them.

Fetchbook.info is a search engine for books. You create a wishlist and set the price you're willing to pay for each particular book. Every few hours they search for them among 127 online bookstores and next to each book will  appear the cheapest price they found (including S&H). If they find one of your listed books at the price you requested, or cheaper, they send you an email. You then follow their link, and it will take you to the store selling it.

Quite handy, really. I highly recommend it!

Kresley Cole's MacCarrick Brothers books.  They are Highlands ans I think they know how to talk a woman to the big O.  I know there are others but I can not think of them right now. Although the Devil books that everyone is talking about were good too.  Sandra Hill's Viking Series has some really strong heros that do the talking thing very well.

One of my keepers, a Scottish Medieval called "Bride of the Beast" by Sue-Ellen Welfonder, has a hero who is really good at explaining to the heroine what he plans to do to her :)  It is the second in a series, but can stand alone as well.

I LIKED THE FIRST ONE IN THAT SERIES AND THE "BEAST" GUY SOUNDED REALLY NICE, SO I'LL HAVE TO GET THAT ONE. 

I ALREADY READ THE KRESLEY COLES AND FORGOT ALL ABOUT THEM.  YOU'RE RIGHT AND THAT HIGHLAND DIALECT IS SO CUTE TOO!

Ladies, If you have Irish Devil in the mountain, dig it out.  I just finished it and it was REALLY good.   Donovan was quite specific in his dialogue.  Great story too.  It is promised to a swap, or I would have kept it.
