Carina Press continues to acquire submissions in the erotic romance genre, and we are now acquiring short stories in addition to novellas and longer works.

M/F, M/M, F/F, non-binary pairings, trans pairings and polyamorous and ménage+ romances are welcome, as are erotic thrillers and stories that push characters’ personal boundaries or delve into the taboo. The language in these books should be frank and explicit, with the sensuality and sexuality of the story integral parts of the plot and themes. Sexual tension and explosive chemistry between the protagonists is key to building the intensity of the story and sexiness of the erotic romance. Additionally, erotic romances must have a happily ever after or happily for now, including when the romance is between two or more characters.

The Dirty Bits from Carina Press! (Erotic Short Stories): An ongoing call for short, erotic romances across subgenres, between 10-25k. These should have tight pacing, a romance with a happily ever after, and be very erotic.
