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).
Marked as a traitor after abandoning my pack and choosing to join another, I was being hunted by the man who rejected me.
Cursed as a half-breed, ignored and unwanted, I was an outcast amongst my pack.
I had dealt with a lifetime of abuse, with Ward as my only ally.
When faced with the news of his betrayal and union to a full-blood wolf, I had no reason to stay.
In a new town and with a new pack, I'm accepted and protected by three.
Have I found the place where I belong or am I being used for what I know?
Ward is determined to drag me back to the pack now that I am important to them.
Caught between the pack who only seeks to silence me and the one who seeks to use my body and learn my secrets.
Who can I trust?
18+ Only. Standalone reverse harem romance with a HEA.
I have a crush… Well, two, really. One is a guy I met online, who I’ll never work up the guts to meet in real life. And the other? That’s a long story…
My life feels like it’s falling apart at the seams—I’m broke, my restaurant is on the verge of failure, and my brother’s best friend just moved back to town.
Okay, so maybe Brooks Callahan’s return isn’t a life-ending event, but it sure feels like it. Eight years ago, he told me he wanted me. He was just a kid, and honestly, so was I. When I tried to let him down gently, he lashed out, his awful words scarring me in ways they never should have.
Now Brooks is the only one who can help me, and I have to find a way to put our issues to bed. Metaphorically, not literally. That would be ridiculous, right? Of course, it would.
Maybe I’ll ask the guy I’ve crushed on for months…my online friend whose posts always seem to reverberate in my soul. Whose messages make me laugh. Think. Feel.
The one who has his own crush…on someone else.
What am I going to do?
My soul is damaged. My body impaired. But she makes me want to live.
A 2018 TopShelf Indie Book Awards nominee!
That’s who I am.
Once an elite soldier for The Company, now I am worthless. My soul blackened…my body broken.
I fled with a bounty on my head.
A creature of the night, I find my sanctuary in an underground maze in the woods.
Then she comes to me, seeking my help. I am darkness…she is light. Her goodness makes me yearn for the impossible.
Her sister is lost, the city overrun by gangs. No one will risk their lives to interfere.
No one but me.
I have nothing to lose.
I am just a killing machine. I never lose scent of my prey.
She gives me hope. A new purpose. A chance to redeem myself.
I won’t fail her.
This is the reason they created me.
This is who I am.

Olivia Holland doesn’t believe in astrology, Tarot, smudging, or aura cleanses. She might change her mind about manifesting. Does it count if she’s fake engaged to the man of her dreams? Even though he’s been her best friend for years, Liv doesn’t know how to communicate on a deeper level with Ollie. When she discovers that their baby making pact is a success, she has two choices. Either crack his secret code or walk away to let him live his best life. Unfortunately, their friends and family keep complicating an already complex task. What Liv needs is a little help from Cupid. She’s going to learn a love language that has no words.
Oliver Cucinelli does not count keeping secrets among his strongest skills. He’s never been good at lying, but he’s painfully familiar with the phrase “fake it ‘til you make it.” He didn’t plan on a fake engagement to the love of his life as a way to win her over, but he’s not going to waste this opportunity to research exactly, specifically, categorically how Liv defines love. Communication is key. Unfortunately for Ollie, communication is also not his strongest skill. To complicate matters, Liv is acting strange. How can he learn the deepest desires of a woman whose personality seems to change every hour? Language is hard, so he’s going to let his heart do all the talking.
I like my peace and quiet.
I don’t need a woman.
But she showed up when I wasn’t looking…
I’ve worked with Kelly for a long time at Recovery Ranch.
It wasn’t until I carried her back to my cabin to check out her ankle
That I really saw her. Big dark eyes, and a broken heart.
Once I put my mind to it, I get what I want.
She’s in my arms, in my bed, in my heart.
When an accident triggers bad memories,
She almost pulls away.
But I won’t let her.
Because now that I’ve seen how good happiness feels,
I’ll fight with everything I’ve got to keep it, and her with me for good.
Money can buy anything. And anyone. As the head of the Constantine family, I’m used to people bowing to my will. Cruel, rigid, unyielding—I’m all those things. When I discover the one woman who doesn’t wither under my gaze, but instead smiles right back at me, I’m intrigued.
Ash Elliott needs cash, and I make her trade in crudeness and degradation for it. I crave her tears, her moans. I pay for each one. And every time, she comes back for more. When she challenges me with an offer of her own, I have to decide if I’m willing to give her far more than cold hard cash.
But love can have deadly consequences when it comes from a Constantine. At the stroke of midnight, that choice may be lost for both of us.
Two billionaires determined to claim her.
And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.

I should have known when I couldn’t keep my eyes off her that this would be a mistake.
I was hired to protect her, this woman who’s lost everything yet there’s an obvious fire that blazes behind her beautiful gaze. She stares back, daring and tempting me. It calls to a side of me that’s darker and longs to tame her.
We both have secrets, we both have a past we’re not ready to face. More than that, we both want to get lost in each other, falling into a forbidden game of control and power. Of submission and dominance.

Nat Sullivan smells trouble coming in the Triple H’s cold mountain air. And this time it’s not the repo men sneaking in to take his prized horses. It’s a beautiful woman with wide eyes, dark hair, and skin pale as snow.

Bad Night Stand
The man had seemed so innocent in the bar—hot, hard, and possessing a butt that I wanted to bite like the last chocolate chip cookie in my stash.
Of course, he’d also skipped town, leaving me woefully unsatisfied. That was before the news of a failed IUD. Before the plus sign. Before Jordan showed back up determined to make that night up to me.
I didn’t want a baby or a payday or a sexy, stubborn man in my life. I wanted to go back in time and pretend none of it had happened.
Unfortunately, my life had become all about that plus sign . . . and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do about it.
The first sign of trouble was the rough, masculine voice. The second was the Scottish accent. God, Cecelia loved Scottish accents. Colin McGregor was her every fantasy come to life. And Cecelia had been in love with him. Twice.
Then had her heart broken. Twice.
Well, the third time wasn’t the charm and CeCe wasn’t going to be stupid about Colin. Not again. Not now that she knew better.
But had anyone informed Colin of that fact?
Heather O’Keith is the biggest, baddest female CEO around. Known for being tough as nails, fair to a fault, and a shark when it comes to securing contracts for her business, RoboTech, she’s also lonely.
Not that she would tell anyone else that . . . least of all one Clay Steele—sexy, smart, cold, and a man with a business acumen that both matches and sometimes surpasses her own.
But then Heather realizes that she may not be the only lonely one. The big lug who seems to enjoy tormenting her in the business world also has a soft side. And when that part of him is wholly directed at her, she gets stupid.
Stupid finds her waking up hungover and naked in Clay’s bed. With a giant diamond ring. On her left hand.
Oh lord, what has she done?
Bad Date: A Never Before Released Novella
Blind dates were the absolute worst.
Awkward, filled to the brim with small talk, and they never, ever worked out. Kay knew all that. Yet for some reason, she still had agreed to let Heather set her up.
Maybe it was because Heather O’Keith had rescued her when some idiot had dropped half a Venti Frappuccino on her laptop, saving her nearly-completed novel and befriending her in the process. Maybe Heather was just a force to be reckoned with. Or maybe, it was because Kay had serious pushover tendencies.
But when the date came, Kay found herself alone at a table for almost an hour before she called it quits. She’d been stood up. Yup, that was just perfect.
Her night was shot, she was behind on her word count, but then . . . she quite literally ran into tall, dark, and handsome outside the restaurant. One look at him and Kay thought that perhaps her night might be salvaged after all.
Until she discovered tall, dark, and handsome was a jerk. Until she discovered that jerk was her missing blind date—her rude and insufferable date who blew right by her as if she didn’t exist.
What. The. Hell?
Sometimes a real hero lets you save yourself . . .
Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation while Zeb spends his working with his hands. But none of that has stopped Zeb from wanting the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her—even if the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest.
Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior. When he shows up at Sayer’s door needing her professional help, she’s both disappointed and relieved that she won’t get the chance to find out just how good he could be.
But as they team up to right a wrong and save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide cannot be ignored.
“Crownover weaves a tale that touches every emotion and keeps the pages turning.” —Liliana Hart, New York Times bestselling author
Bestselling author Susan Ward’s newest installment of the Parker Saga features a British prince and a rock star’s daughter in a slow burn holiday romance filled with heart, heat, and humor.
I never expected my life with Damon to take an unexpected turn that could rock even my family. What Damon set in motion was the last thing I expected.
He was the man of my dreams.
He made me live them.
I should probably have said no, but my heart made my mouth say yes because Damon had become my everything.
One night. One perfect night before Christmas.
It starts with tickets to a holiday-themed rock show. A winter night in the snow-clad city with my best friend and my perfect girl.
Naomi is stunning, vibrant, and as wild as she is beautiful.
Diego is my rock, my loyal companion, my best friend for life.
Tonight, the three of us will celebrate like no other. Tonight, we’ll dance, and drink hot toddies, and spend the night wrapped in each other’s arms.
I’m going to savor it. Every minute. Because tonight might be my last night alive.
Note from the author: This is a spin-off novel from Truth or Dare series. Otto is all grown up, falling in love, and getting into trouble. You don't have to read the Truth or Dare Duet first, but it's highly recommended as it contains major plot spoilers. This book has Christmas shenanigans, steamy MMF scenes (and m/m scenes), and a gut-punch of feels.
This former all-star never knew Christmas could be so competitive.
Former baseball star Trey Prentice is happily adjusting to life as a bookstore owner in his hometown of Sweet Ridge, Texas. While he loved his competitive and elite lifestyle in New York, he craved a quiet life with friends and family more. As Christmas approaches, Trey is excited to decorate his newest venture and participate in the town’s holiday traditions. He never expected to find himself battling Sweet Ridge’s very own Miss Christmas. Game on.
The only thing librarian Maggie Watson loves more than books is Christmas. She’s even earned the nickname of Miss Christmas because she decorates shop windows and spreads Christmas cheer around town. But this year she’s got some competition. No way is she going to let the cocky Trey Prentice take away her Christmas crown, even though he makes her heart flutter.
When their verbal sparring turns to flirting, Maggie finds there’s more to life than books and Christmas. But will her past insecurities steal her newfound happiness?
Navy SEAL Thaddeus Jonsson is the strong, silent type. He’s assigned as bodyguard to Jana, a fiercely independent and outspoken woman with a secret worth a lot of money. And she’s not pleased that her overprotective grandmother hired protection for her. Even if he is the image of a Viking, all six feet three of him. She fights against his intrusion into her life.
Thaddeus was trained to be alone, and after years of deployment can’t envision losing his heart to a woman. He’s clear on one thing: he’s not marriage material. But Jana affects him as no woman has. He’s bound to protect her, but will he stay when the danger is over?
Like the Land of Fire and Ice, their Icelandic homeland, their personalities clash. Will destiny give love a chance?
Deadly Peril is a military romance with no cliffhanger.
