I walked a razor thin line when I wrote TEMPTED, the story of a mature heroine who fantasizes about sex outside marriage, though she loves her husband. The subject matter elicited stern warnings from my editor during the revision process, because married women cannot step their toes over the fidelity line in romantic fiction. Though Emily doesn’t technically cheat, TEMPTED takes place in that gray area between desire and action.
Does the ‘no cheating’ rule extend to the imagination? That depends upon whether or not you consider daydreaming about sex with other men acts of unfaithfulness. As my heroine becomes caught inside the technology of 3-D interactive television and takes an unexpected adventure, the line between reality and fantasy blurs. Her resolution of this state lies at the heart of TEMPTED.
So, readers and authors, what do you define as cheating?
