Me, I love them. I use them in both real life and in my writing. In my current WIP, Rick, my alpha extraordinaire, calls the heroine a kitten and I kid you not, every time I hear him say it I get weak in the knees.
Check it out...
Rick's fingers sunk deep, loosening the elastic band holding her hair hostage while adjusting the angle of her head for the deepening of his kiss.Oh yeah, Rick has given me some yes, sir moments indeed with his use of pet names. ;)
“Still not enough, kitten, I need more of your soft, pink lips. First these…” He emphasized his point with soft gentle kisses to each lip. “…then the other.”
So tell me, do you have a favorite pet name? Do any of your characters have a pet name they brought with them from the land of newly born, and if so, what are they?
Have a great Friday!
