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).
I planned to fake date my billionaire bosshole.
Not give him my v-card.
He’s sexy and arrogant…
His job post requests a vet, but he really needs a bride.
And if I fake marry him, he’ll pay off my mom’s medical bills.
Taking the job is a no-brainer…
But this “engagement” comes with fine print.
Touching, teasing, and every time our lips meet, my world tilts.
I’m marrying him to clear my debt, not to fall in love.
But tell that to the goosebumps covering my skin every time he looks at me.
And my virginal body craves his touch.
I fear he will see me, see that I’ve never had sex.
God help me to get through these six months because I’m falling for my hus
I’ve never relied on a man for anything
But now my career is in trouble, and Garrett says he can help.
I’ve always played the good girl on TV
But something about the silver fox makes me want to be bad.
He’s everything I don’t want–
Too confident, too rich, too handsome for my own good
And on top of that, he’s my best friend’s ex
But I’m determined to make him stop seeing me as a kid
He has me in a fake relationship for the positive press
Meanwhile, he’s losing the battle to keep his hands off me
Getting caught with him could ruin everything
Especially when a little blue plus sign shows up on the pregnancy test
Garrett might be able to save my career
But who is going to save me from Garrett?

A Wholesome, Spicy, and Realistic LGBTQ+ Romance That Will Get Your Heart and Body Warming - The Perfect Read for Those Who
Need a Little Romance in Their Life
I loved who I was. I was comfortable — mind, body, and soul.
I knew who I was and that the genitalia between my legs didn’t make me any less of a woman than the females around me. I could also wear skirts and walk around freely and none would be the wiser, until… you know.
But, that wasn’t an issue. Usually.
I moved to town about a year ago and my sweet supportive co-worker had been working her ass off trying to set me up on a date. From ‘sophisticated guys’ who liked lemon in their whiskey to guys who she thought were just absolutely ‘perfect’ for me. (Spoiler Alert: they never were.)
“It'll be fun this time! I promise!”
I gave her a flat look and remembered all the horrendous dates she’s set me up with. Not until I see him walk into the bookstore. Hearing the soft tinkle inkle link of the bells and watching him step through the door, any signs of a frown would disappear from my face and made me swell up under my skirt.
I didn’t think that by the time I’d hear the second tinkle inkle link of the bells, I’d have secured myself a date with the town’s hero — Less, Mr. April of the fireman's calendar.
I also didn’t think that I would have anything to worry about when it came to him. Except… he didn’t know what I had under my skirt.
What’s Under Her Skirt is a fantastically funny, yet realistically romantic LGBTQ-friendly romance. Of course, it isn’t without its spicy moments that will leave you out of breath. Come alongside Eda, a woman who’s comfortable in the body that she was born in, as she tries to navigate life and love.
