  1. Could something appeal to those readers without being directly in the forcefem niche? That is, if we took out the forcefem, what is left? Strong woman? Male supplicant? She's in charge? He's strong enough to let her be in charge? She's strong enough to take charge? I really want Kria to be appealing and strong so that the story doesn't become one trick with Thor as alpha.
  2. Thank you. After you initially posted, I read a book of the same title by Barbara Deloto, which has a forced feminization plot. I have a secondary character named Kria who is a dominant female, which fits the Viking warrior ethos of Asgaard, and she encourages the heroine to be strong without apology. Kria is strong and direct with her boyfriend, who is strong and silent. However, it probably won't fill the same niche as strong women and forced feminization.
  3. Can you remember the author for The Virgin Bride? The two I found by that name are far from F/m. They were still enjoyable, and one of them gave me a good idea how to handle the god/human duality of Thor in my book (which, as you might guess, is about Thor). Thank you.
  4. Welcome to the party, Tina. Thank you for adding to the discussion. In the F/m romance genre, are there any pinnacle works that stand out as "they don't make 'em like that anymore"?
  5. I've been pondering where the erotic romance market is going. Anne Rice's Beauty is still popular, but I've not seen anything like it in erotica or erotic romance. Have others tried and failed, or is this kind of erotica not popular anymore among writers/publishers? Or are there good examples that I've missed? 50 Shades was followed (and preceded) by several books that were marketed as being in the same vein, but none of them (not even 50 Shades) have that much sex. Crossfire has about four sex scenes per book. Why aren't there more? Is that the way readers want it, or are writers hesitant to add more sex scenes for other reasons? Or does keeping the romance in erotic romance not leave room for too many sex scenes that are still meaningful? What happens to an erotic romance book that gets kinky without declaring itself a kinky book? That is, would readers be turned off by BD and SM and DS that occurred in books that didn't have a "BDSM club" scene? Other than Beauty and clearly-marked BDSM books, I haven't seen nipple clamps make an appearance. Have I missed them? Do only doms carry nipple clamps in erotic romance books? Is the lack of these books a lack of supply or a lack of demand? Are there two groups of readers: 1. readers who want BDSM full-bore with contracts and dungeons 2. readers who want a little light spanking or bondage, with nothing in the middle? The middle would be erotic romance that doesn't use the words BDSM, contract, club, or scene, but still has kink that goes beyond light necktie bondage. Dan
