It's wonderful that sexy stories are finally moving into mainstream markets. From a practical standpoint, that’s awesome news. Millions of women, and a growing number of men, read romance. I’ve heard rumors that romance is up to 50% of the fiction market. If you write romance, it’s like having a world-wide stadium of enthusiastic, voracious readers.
And since I’m a reader too, I adore having so many stories available. I can read books faster than I can write them, so I’m a reader first.
Happy endings … I love them.
#1- ALPHA HEROES!
Okay— I admit it— these guys are absolutely the main reason I started writing erotic romance.
“Write what you love” definitely works for me, and I flat out LOVE stories about sexually dominant, alpha heroes.
Wishing you all happy reading.
PS, There are some sexy alpha hero-types on my Pinterest boards… https://www.pinterest.com/marilynlakewood/ Warning: These are definitely NSFW and for 18+ only!
