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).

What happens if I let her in again? What if she...
I escaped small-town life, searching for more, and thought I found it. I lived the life I dreamed of, big city, great job, doting boyfriend. It's funny how quickly dreams turned into nightmares.

I loved, I lied, and I left, never imagining I'd wind up back in Cross Creek, scared, alone, and pregnant. Now, I'm here, with my heart in my hand, begging for Noah's forgiveness.
Is it too late to have it all, or will there be a second chance for us?

I used to believe in fairy tales.
And then I met him.
They call him the beast.
Shadows danced under his cold eyes, but all I saw was his fire.
He pressed me up against the walls of his castle, and growled against my neck that I belonged to him. He made a dark flower bloom inside me, awakening a hunger that I didn’t even know existed.
I gave myself to him.
I let him dominate every inch of me. I let him hold my heart and see every corner of my soul.
When it was his turn to do the same, it all went dark.
I get a peek into his real world for the first time—a world of ruthless criminals and savage monsters.

A town full of secrets. A dark elite.
A girl who crossed the wrong king.
They call them the Court, an elite boys club who rule Windsor Preparatory Academy like gods among men. And, of course, they're led by Hercules himself.
Royal Prinze--yes, that's actually his name--walks around both the school and the town like he owns them. His affiliation to the prestigious Court only gives him more clout. These boys do anything they want. They take anything they want, and they f*ck anything they want... in that order.

She'd never gone off the grid.
The new girl, I arrived at Maywood Heights to find her. The last thing I imagined when enrolling at her school was that she'd be connected to a group like the Court, and boys like Royal. She's nothing like them and so much better than Royal and his elitist attitude...
So, why then are they saying he's her best friend?
Warning: This enemies-to-lovers, high school romance contains some dark themes and light bullying. The book is not a standalone and is book one in a four-part series of full-length novels. Royal Prinze is the only hero of this tale... good luck getting him to share.
I tried it all…
I hated him in the way that he deserved.
I resisted him in the way that I knew best.
But I failed.
It was easier to hate Claude but harder to stay out of his bed.
He wanted to win.
He wanted to control me.
And he wanted to make me submit.
The worse part?
I let him do those things.
I satisfied his billion-dollar ego by letting him adore my curves.
Falling in love with a bad boy was a… bad idea.
But Claude wasn’t just that.
He was also my enemy.
An enemy that now had my heart.
Could I still reclaim it knowing that this bad boy was going to be the end of my sanity?
What if a part of me craved to be destroyed by him?
