What is “Erotic Romance”?
This particular genre of romance is one where the erotic elements are integral to the plot and take the book beyond traditional romance boundaries. The erotic elements (in the context of any traditional or non-traditional romantic relationship) play a major part in plot and/or character development, and the end of the book is emotionally satisfying and optimistic. The story must end with a “happily for now” or “happily ever after” ending. A romance may contain or reflect multiple genres and themes (ie: historical, paranormal, LGBTQ, BDSM culture, polyamory, contemporary); however, for erotic romance, the erotic element is the *primary* defining genre of the work.
