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).

They’re not star-crossed—they’re impossible.
Bought and soon-to-be delivered, Emma Sorrento will be the next wife of a New York Don decades her senior. Not by choice, but as a mafia princess—was there ever one?
But the soul-black eyes of the man tasked with ensuring her safe arrival to the wedding of her nightmares tempts her like no other. In the worst possible way.
Calisto Donati. He’s entirely forbidden. The nephew of the man she’s supposed to marry. And just a touch from him could get her killed.
Is it worth it?
Now Emma has two problems. Saving herself from a marriage to a man she doesn’t want, and not falling in love with the one she does.
NOTE: The Donati Bloodlines trilogy includes THREE parts that should be read in order—part one and two end on a cliffhanger, and part three is a HEA.
Everyone wants to give in to temptation, but no one wants to pay the price.
I was a child when my father surrendered me to the Temple of All Gods. No one gave me a choice. No one even bothered to explain. I was simply tossed aside, unwanted.
That was the day the God of Temptation claimed me as his.
Now, I'm studying how to become the perfect priestess. Life in the temple means embracing my emotions and learning to harness each type of desire. Power, fear, lust, and rage are the most common, but not the only ones. Each has a power. Each has its place. I just have to figure out which kind of priestess I'll become.
Before I decide, I have questions - yet no one seems willing to give me answers. My only option is to leave it in my god's hands. This won't be easy, and my instructors think I'm a fool, but Temptation has been listening. Asking. Offering it all.
In exchange, he intends to use me.
I have demands. The priest and priestess who took me in have become my family. The guys? They taught me to love. How am I supposed to give this up? Why should I? Not even a god can make me walk away from them! All I have to do is stand my ground.
In this temple, there's always a temptation.
The question is if I'm stubborn enough to resist...
Or brave enough to pay a god's price.
Possible Triggers: Minor bullying, some sexual harassment, consensual pain and battery. Minor violence.

"I love alpha males.... Yes I know Alpha males are the in thing but they need to be done right and in this book Drake is perfect." -Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Until Series
Alexa is just your average college junior, attending classes and piloting Mile High Club charter flights. Boys haven't been on her radar for a couple years after a disastrous breakup with her high school sweetheart. Her plans to focus on school hit a bit of a snag when she meets bad-boy Drake Bennett and he sets his sights on making her his own.
Drake transferred to Blythe College for the rugby team, not for a new assortment of college girls. He's sexy and cocky, and he attracts women like moths to a flame. When he meets Alexa, Drake knows he's met his match. She tries to resist him, but Drake isn't used to taking no for an answer.
This is the first book in the Blythe College series. Push the Envelope does not have a cliffhanger.
At first, Devin was just an innocent summer crush. But then my feelings for him began to deepen. And I realized he was showing interest in me, too. Except Devin isn’t allowed to like me.
My best friend Lauren and I were away at Camp Pines by the Lake before starting college in the fall.
It was exciting when I met Luke on day one, and he was definitely into me. Camp last year wasn’t enjoyable. So, spending the summer with Luke seemed like it could be fun.
Then just like that, who I wanted changed.
You know that moment when you see a guy’s face for the first time and he’s just so beautiful that it takes your breath away? Or what about when your fingers brush against each other’s and you feel tingles? That was all happening to me every time I saw the guy with the longish surfer hair and crystal blue eyes. His name tag finally revealed his name: Devin.
I managed to get some intriguing information about Devin from my cabin counselor. After that, all I’d hoped for were some chances to be around him—so he might get to know me.
It was completely unexpected, yet thrilling, when we got to talk during a terrible rainstorm that’d left us completely alone together. I ended up sharing my feelings about being an adoptee and wanting to find my birth mom. And eventually, I learned of his own troubled past.
The problem is now I like Devin more than I should. And an even bigger issue is that my birthday isn’t until the end of July, which means I’m still seventeen.
