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).
A man of integrity…with a secret desire
Moose Garrett just wants to do the right thing. Fulfill his duty. Honor his parents. Fix his neighbors’ tractors. Ignore the girl he needs to forget.
Everyone in Sawyer expects Moose to woo and wed the town beauty queen – not Georgia Rowland. Hell, Moose’s parents have all but signed a marriage contract with the revered patriarch of another wealthy Sawyer family.
So yeah, it’s true that Georgia’s been tempting him ever since he hit puberty and discovered the allure of the opposite gender, but that doesn’t mean he’s actually going to give into the temptation.
Georgia is strictly off limits.
But matters of the heart are about as predictable as a wildfire – a wildfire that comes straight out of nowhere…and changes everything.
A woman who’s all business…with a secret crush
Georgia has spent a lot of years – roughly 26 of them or so – pretending Moose Garrett wasn’t the finest man in Sawyer. She pushes pesky thoughts of him clear out of her mind. She never pays a bit of attention to his powerful build, or how his blue jeans show off his lean and muscular body. And for the record, she barely even notices the way his slow, sultry smile makes her knees wobbly.
Because that hardly ever happens.
As the youngest branch manager of the Goldfork Credit Union, and the first female to hold that position, she’s too busy for any of that nonsense. Besides, everyone knows Moose is bound to marry Sawyer’s reigning beauty. Georgia is sure he’d never give a moment’s notice to…well, to someone like her.
But when Miss No Nonsense sets out on a hike in the foothills of Long Valley and gets trapped amidst the flames of a wildfire, the only man she’s ever wanted swoops in to save her.
So yeah, Moose is the last man she should dream about.
But he’s the one man who will walk through danger and smoke and fire.
Just to find her…
Inferno of Love is the second novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!
My boss’s daughter crashed into my life…like fireworks.
And now, she’s carrying my baby.
I am a Navy SEAL, and a single dad to the most beautiful son on the planet.
Ethics come naturally to me,
Except when I see Alexa.
Oh…I am drawn like a moth to flame,
And want to drown myself in the vast ocean of her deep, blue eyes.
This is wrong on so many levels.
She’s the boss’s daughter, and so much younger.
But then…it’s been a long time.
No matter how hard I try to resist, life keeps bringing her back to me.
I need her.
My boss is going to kill me if he finds out.
And I’m going to do everything to claim what’s mine – my family.
"Dark, dirty, and perfect--Renee Rose has mastered this genre." ~USA Today Bestselling Author Alta Hensley
I WARNED YOU.
I told you not to set foot in my casino again. I told you
to stay away. Because if I see those hips swinging around
my suite, I’ll pin you against the wall and take you hard.
And once I make you mine, I’m not gonna set you free.
I’m king of the Vegas underground and I take
what I want.
So run. Stay the hell away from my casino.
Or I’ll tie you to my bed. Put you on your knees.
Or else come to me, beautiful, if you dare...
King of Diamonds is a stand-alone romance in the Vegas Underground series. No cheating, no cliffhangers.
Move on. Start over.
Easy words for everyone else, but not me.
My wife died on my operating table, and moving on just isn’t going to happen.
Not until I decided to go back to the small town where I grew up.
My boy and I needed different scenery to try to reboot life.
And we did. Until one day, a beautiful woman walked into my office and everything changed.
She was from one of the oldest families in Tennessee and needed my help.
With the way she made me and my son feel, I was more than happy to offer it.
Love wasn’t supposed to show up again, and certainly not this soon.
But it did. It has.
I just hope she knows that she has to love us both. Forever.
A forty-year-old CEO knocking up his twenty-three-year-old assistant?
Alright, falling for the s$xy single dad was a HUGE mistake.
Letting him take my innocence right there on his desk – a BIGGER mistake.
I knew it would be no strings attached,
I knew he never could love me,
I knew he was broken,
I knew he was afraid to love and afraid to live.
And I knew that fairy tales weren’t real.
But I still believed in true love.
Unrequited love is torturous.
And carrying your boss’s baby dangerous…
Well, cupid is a sadist, isn’t it?
She needed a place to stay. He needed to save his ranch. Together they just might make a home.
Sgt. Dylan Banks lost more than just his leg in the war. His fiancée and family turned their backs on him as well. Now, he’s determined to create a safe place where wounded warriors like himself can heal. But a hidden zoning law requires all residents of the Purple Heart Ranch to be married. To save his dream, Dylan and his men will have to tie the knot—but can a man with such deep scars inside and out believe in love again?
Maggie Shaw lost both her job as a veterinary technician and her apartment on the same day. Who knew her unreasonable landlord would kick her out for being four dogs over the one pet limit? Now, she and her gang of special-needs dogs are in trouble. Fate puts her in Dylan’s path with a proposal that seems too good to be true—but can her heart bear a loveless marriage of convenience?
Dylan yearns to reach out for Maggie’s healing touch, but he keeps his distance, convinced his wounds are too deep for her embrace. Maggie sees past Dylan’s injuries, but if she fails to capture his heart they both could lose it all: her beloved animals, his ranch, and each other.
Find out if love can truly heal all wounds in this light-hearted, sweet romance of convenient arrangements that unfold into lasting love. On His Bended Knee is the first in a series of marriage of convenience tales featuring Wounded Warriors who are healed with the power of love.

SHORTLISTED IN THE 2016 CHATELAINE INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS
Victoria Smith's life seems dreary until someone knocks on a sealed door inside her London bookshop. When Tori discovers it's not a ghost but a journalist from 1854, she accidentally strands him in 2014. Intrigued by the dapper and crusading Charles Stratford, Tori offers to help him locate a pendant that will reopen the door to his century. Even when their treasure hunt across London turns dangerous, Tori finds herself wishing that Charles could stay. But after losing her family a decade before, can she risk loving someone again, especially a man from 1854?
Lured into the future by a mysterious pendant, Charles Stratford must track down its counterpart to unlock the door between Londons. When the winsome Victoria Smith volunteers to join his search, Charles becomes smitten with the intrepid bookseller. He also uncovers an ancient struggle between two underground societies and becomes entangled in their secret intrigues. If Charles fails to return both pendants to 1854, he places his own London at risk. But how can he succeed when it means saying farewell to Victoria in 2014?
From modern-day Soho to nineteenth-century Mayfair, The Never List takes readers on a whirlwind tour of Londons new and old as its time-crossed heroes search for a way to love each other within two centuries. It is the first book in the Love Across Londons series which should be read in order.
Book One: The Never List
Forbidden fruit is often the sweetest,
And this time, I just couldn’t lay off it.
Jacob Wynn, thick thighs, all muscle, hard, chiseled abs.
Also, the se$iest football players around and…my new client.
We know we shouldn’t do it.
We know that our relationship is strictly business,
But we just can’t resist.
I am supposed to be the doctor here, the healer.
But it is his hands that are checking my body,
His mouth that is caressing my curves and healing me,
And his eyes flirting with mine…
It’s like he is giving me a cure for all my fantasies.
And how am I supposed to say no to the best and multiple ‘O’s’ that he gives me!
Well, when you flirt with trouble, the trouble often flirts back in ways you can never have imagined…
Love, in a hopeless place.
Two months after a virus took out civilization, Rachel Donnelly is the last living soul in California, as far as she can tell. Until she runs into a Marine sniper, battle-hardened but alive and healthy.
Adam Sanchez would love nothing more than a slamming session of I-can't-believe-we're-alive post-apocalyptic sex in the back of his Hummer. But Rachel's fragility, inexperience-and much younger age-hold him back from exposing her to his raw, aggressive sexuality. If anything, Rachel needs protection. Especially from himself.
As they band together with other survivors to battle feral animals, violent ex-cons, and motorcycle clubs jockeying for power, Rachel grows stronger in mind, body, and spirit-strong enough to give the dangerously sexy Marine what they both crave.
The power of their passion rocks Adam's world, bringing him to his knees-which, he discovers too late, is the worst possible place to be when danger springs from the shadows.
Warning: Contains a sexy Marine, a tattooed ex-con, a girl who blossoms into a sexually assured young woman, laughter despite the pain, m/f/m ménage, hope, love, and more bad language and violence than are strictly necessary.
She wants a baby, and I’m just the guy.
I didn't join the medical field because of the women, but it sure as hell has become a perk of the job.
Now, a new forbidden lust has sparked my interest, but the odds are stacked against me.
She's taboo. Unreachable. Beautiful and broken.
My mentor's sister is older than me and commands respect when she walks in the room. Nothing like the twenty-year-old floozies that spread their legs at nothing more than a look.
Divorced and dominant, with more beauty and class than any woman I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
And word on the street is that she left the old guy she was hitched to because she wanted kids.
Sounds like a job for a real man. Me.
As long as we keep things casual. I ain’t looking for love.
Too bad she thinks I’m a pompous ass. She doesn’t know me at all.
No one does.
Looks like I’ll have to take this fight under the covers.
There you go.
Every Good Girl Deserves a Bad Boy. ~ Weston

From Nicole Helm, the bestselling author of the Big Sky Cowboys, Navy Seal Cowboys, and Stone Cold series, comes this breathtaking new romance set in the middle of Big Sky country—Colorado’s gorgeous Rocky Mountains . . .
As the oldest of three brothers, Shane Tyler takes his responsibility to the family ranch seriously—and it’s clear to him that the younger man who wants to marry his widowed mother is only looking for a meal ticket. He’s determined to stop the nuptials whatever it takes, but the shy wedding planner his mom hired is harder to intimidate than he expected.

Accepting the position as wedding planner at brand-new Mile High Weddings took even more courage.
