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).

Amanda Thomas is hopelessly in love with Jackson Paris, but he will never see her as anything more than his sweet and innocent bestie.

She wants to learn about hot, dirty sex, so she joins an online dating app where the enigmatic Mr. Dark promises to fulfill all of her wicked fantasies...

But in the dim, provocative atmosphere of Black Rose Underground, there are no secrets. Here, every wicked appetite is satisfied. And for the first time, Mandy will discover who her best friend really is...just in time to shock him with a secret of her own.
I came “home” to this small town to start over,
Not to start a new relationship.

Not to find the same old troubles with a new man.

And my heart.
This is more than a fling, but I’m afraid to define it.
I’m going to have to figure it out soon though,
Because the baby I’m carrying won’t stay a secret for long.

Rich bachelor Calum meets a good girl turned exotic dancer one night in the lavish VIP room of a club. He’s immediately drawn to her gorgeous body and sultry yet innocent eyes. Pretty Kaia seems to want him too… but maybe she is a better liar than he thinks.
When they next meet, sweet little Kaia is auditioning to join the big city ballet that he just so happens to practically own. She looks like a deer in headlights, as it is a strict rule that ballerinas do not have side jobs.
But Calum has a mutually beneficial offer for her. Sign a contract. Live in his penthouse. Be at his beck and call, at any time, in every single way he can think of. And in exchange, he keeps his mouth closed and pays her a lavish stipend.
Kaia can’t resist his callous, possessive demand. But once he has Kaia all to himself, setting her free again becomes a passionate struggle…

The “sweet, sexy, and utterly fun” (Emily Henry, author of People We Meet on Vacation) Regency Vows series continues with a witty, charming, and joyful novel following a seasoned debutante and a rakish theater owner as they navigate a complicated marriage of convenience.
Lady Emily Turner has been a debutante for six seasons now and should have long settled into a suitable marriage. However, due to her father’s large debts, her only suitor is the persistent and odious owner of her father’s favorite gambling house. Meanwhile, Lord Julian Belfry, the second son of a marquess, has scandalized society as an actor and owner of a theater—the kind of establishment where men take their mistresses, but not their wives. When their lives intersect at a house party, Lord Julian hatches a plan to benefit them both.
With a marriage of convenience, Emily will use her society connections to promote the theater to a more respectable clientele and Julian will take her out from under the shadows of her father’s unsavory associates. But they soon realize they have very different plans for their marriage—Julian wants Emily to remain a society wife, while Emily discovers an interest in the theater. But when a fleeing actress, murderous kitten, and meddlesome friends enter the fray, Emily and Julian will have to confront the fact that their marriage of convenience comes with rather inconvenient feelings.
With “an arch sense of humor and a marvelously witty voice that rivals the best of the Regency authors” (Entertainment Weekly), Martha Waters crafts another fresh romantic comedy that for fans of Julia Quinn and Evie Dunmore.
