We are seeking submissions in all subgenres of romance (with the exception of faith-based) with all levels of sensuality. We welcome everything from no on-the-page sex to the incredibly erotic, featuring couples (or multiples) from all walks of life, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
Romances should focus on the development of the relationship, as well as external and internal conflict; the heat level should be appropriate to the book and enhance the story; and the primary relationship should offer a happily ever after (HEA) or happily for now (HFN) in an emotionally satisfying manner. Trilogies and duologies wherein the first and/or second book end in cliffhangers are permitted as long as the primary romantic arc ultimately ends in an HEA or HFN.
Sorry, but one or more primary romantic partners cannot die or leave the other(s) to conclude the story if it’s to be sold as a romance!
Subgenres of romance we are seeking include, but are not limited to paranormal, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, contemporary, and historical. Please see specific guidelines for erotic romance and science fiction/fantasy romance in their respective categories.
