We are seeking submissions in contemporary romance with all levels of sensuality. We welcome everything from the very sweet to the very sexy, featuring couples (or multiples) from all walks of life and sexual orientation, including same-sex romances. 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 of the couple cannot die or leave the other if it’s to be sold as a romance!
Contemporary romance themes include, but aren't limited to, romantic comedy, contemporary cowboys, military romance (these may also fit under romantic suspense
), big city/bright lights, multicultural, rock stars, billionaires, and more.
Submissions of contemporary erotic romance should be submitted via the erotic romance category.
Submissions of LGBT romance (and non-romance) should be submitted via the LGBT category.
