15 Female Romantica Authors Leaving Us Hot and Bothered!

in Romance by

Thanks to books like Fifty Shades of Grey, there’s been a huge boom in mainstream erotica novels. In fact, the popularity has birthed an entirely new genre, one that combines traditional romance novel tropes with steamy erotic situations. These new novels are called romantica — and we can’t get enough of them. Like romance or erotica, romantica is mostly written by and for women. It also includes all kinds of sexy tropes, but the most common is definitely lite-BDSM. These are stories about powerful men dominating equally-powerful women who can hold their own both in and out of the bedroom. But unlike straight-up erotica, the man and woman also fall in love, creating a compelling romantic storyline as well as some…

Dear Reader, See what this week’s authors have to say! In each AuthorBuzz note you’ll receive invitations to join contests, get free books, bookplates or bookmarks, read personal stories, and more. Dear Reader, This book is about change. When I wrote my novel, Searching for Perfect, in the Searching for series, I created an older brother for my hero named Connor Dunkle. I had fun with Connor. For the first time, I didn’t worry about trying to give a secondary character upstanding heroic traits, and I let him mess up a lot, taking on a bit of comic humor. Being a strong female, I was surprised that I created a man who seemed to have very little respect for the female gender.…
