Before I get started with my guest post, I’d like to thank Reading Between the Wines for having me here today…and also I’d like to thank everyone stopping in to visit;) You’ll all get a chance to give your own opinion…so let’s get to it.
What Do You Look For in an Erotic Romance?
There are a few things I don’t like…intimate scenes before I know the players and an unsatisfying ending…like there’s no happiness. Geesh…I read for an escape to a happy place living vicariously through the story-stars. (LOL) Don’t we all?
I know there are many genres that expect open endings and such…something to keep the reader on edge with their thinking. I get it…but it isn’t something I expect from a romance.
I’m a real push-over for a happily-ever-after ending…or at the least a happy-for-now ending. So, now that you know how I like my endings, how about what’s inside…the hotness of it all, the erotic part of the story…
I look for story-stars with enough back-story and history plugs within the story that I can pleasingly connect and pull myself into their story…this is what everyone hopes for in a romance, and erotic romances should be no exception. Most especially, I want to connect to the hero and heroine to give those steamy love scenes even more meaning in their building relationship.
Yes, I definitely want steamy…sizzling hot love scenes, lots of tension getting there, but I also want a reason for it all to be happening, to understand the draw the hero and heroine have toward each other. In other words, the ‘why’ of it needs to make sense to me ;)
Now it’s your turn. What do you look for in an erotic romance? I’d love to hear your take on it.
