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 prophesy that rules me.
A curse that ruins me.
A wolf shifter pack who claim I am theirs.
It wasn’t my choice to be sold to a powerful psychopath by my mother when I was a baby. It wasn’t my choice to be tortured for magic I don’t possess but on-one says no to Esoti and lives.
There are worse things than death. Not dying for one.
In a world ruled by The Six, anyone magical is put to death, shifters are slaves and I am the lowest of the low. Until alpha wolves Alerick, Jarom and Eike capture me. The thing is, I don’t want to be anyone’s mate, or toy, or plaything.
They insist I’m anything but human, mastering my body and unleashing ancient magic hidden deep inside me.
The magic is untameable. Unpredictable. But it just might give me the one thing I’ve always dreamed about — revenge.
Magic Claimed is the first book in a dystopian romance series. This action-packed, heart-wrenching ride gives you a kickass heroine, three irresistible shifters, a steamy romance with no choosing required, and evil enemies like you've never seen it before in each book.

The billionaire CEO is used to getting what he wants.
Like me, in this case…
His new secretary, who turned him down in college several years ago.
And for good reason: This Casanova changes his women more often than people change their underwear.
Yet years later, I depend on him to pay my bills.
