The steam in the shower. The chocolate melted and a fresh strawberry dragged through it. Rose petals splashed across a cold, granite floor. Are those the things you need to up the ante in your romance? That's what our excellent authors in the Erotic Romance category do in their ebooks. Consider it romance with a dash of spice and sexiness. And, no, you'll never have to pay more than free or discounted to get access to the wild imaginations of these authors.
Definition of the "Erotic Romance Genre": Where ebooks in the Contemporary Romance genre generally "cut scene" when things start getting hot and heavy, ebooks in the Erotic Romance genre take you into those places. You get all the way into the bedroom, so to speak, not left standing out in the hallway. A key differentiator for ebooks in the Erotic Romance genre is sex, and how sex is used to drive the story and the growth of characters within the story. It is an essential part of an Erotic Romance ebook, but should not be confused with pornography. While the sex can get steamy, there is still a plot that gets driven fowward by that sex.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Erotic Romance genre are EL James (Fifty Shades of Grey), Sylvia Day (Captivated by You), and R.L. Mathewson (Playing for Keeps).
Six years ago, Kiera Anders resolved to put her painful past behind her, seeking a fresh start in New York. She didn’t count on her past finding her again in the form of Caleb Martin - her brother's former best friend and her first love. Now with millions to his name, a playboy reputation, and a closet full of skeletons, the cold and distant "Mr. Martin" is so different from the sweet Caleb she once knew.
But some things are hard to forget, and the passion that still sizzles between them can’t be denied. No other man could give Kiera that sweet taste of dominance and submission… and now that Caleb’s offering it to her again, how can she refuse? But things aren’t as simple as they used to be, with Kiera’s career on the line, a mountain of secrets between them, and Caleb’s sordid past threatening to catch up to him. It’s dangerous to mix business with pleasure… but it is worth the risk?
**This is the first book of the Risky Business Trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger to be resolved in book two**

Three days before Sara Friessen’s wedding, her older sister, Chelsea, who is married to the son of a notorious criminal, disappears without a trace. The police have no leads, and her husband, Alaric Taft, has also gone missing. To find the couple, the Friessens must come face to face with the kind of deadly underworld they had never expected would touch their family.
Andy Friessen lives and breathes only one thing: protecting his family. He soon discovers the secret behind what has happened to his eldest daughter, and he’s plunged into a cat and mouse game, stonewalled at every turn by authorities who are supposed to be helping him. For the first time in his life, he’s forced to admit he’s in over his head. The Friessens are stronger together, so, in desperation, though he swore he never would, Andy ultimately calls for help from his cousins, Brad, Jed, and Neil.
As the cousins dig deeper into the days before the disappearance, they discover that Alaric was hiding a very dark truth, one that put a target on Chelsea’s back, and someone would have gone to great lengths to keep it from coming to light. The lines between good and bad have suddenly become blurred. All the Friessens want is a happy ending, but the more they search, the more the evidence points toward their worst fear—that their nightmare has become reality, and Chelsea could be lost to them forever.

Can Mac 'fess up to what's really in her heart, when speaking her mind puts everything at risk?

Our love story isn't a tragedy but it sure as hell started out like one.
I grew up in the life, and learned to hate everything in this town.
Everything but her. She was my constant through it all.
Just a look would tempt and torment.
Just a touch would singe and soothe.
I only survived because she was by my side.

After all, she was too good for this world. But I was too far gone to push her away.
I was Laura’s downfall.
Problem was, she was mine too.
