What is Erotic Romance?

Posted on Sep 8, 2015 by Special Events Director   No Comments Yet | Posted in Discussion

Over the next few weeks we’ll be discussing the definition of erotic romance. Originally, my personal impression was that it was steamy contemporary romance. Five years ago publishers defined erotic romance as romance with sex scenes that contained full on description of the act itself. That, however, has changed… Much like television, our audience is no longer shocked by consenting adults enjoying sex, in fact, they enjoy that part of the story too. So – when is a book steamy and when is it considered erotica?

Regina Kammer has written a blog about the definition and can be found here.

Please feel free to weigh in with your own thoughts!
