Erotic romance stories, now being termed mainstream, are written in intense, steamy detail to let your imagination run wild. These stories will have your heart pounding and your breath shortening as characters find themselves pursuing and realizing powerful love fantasies. While erotic novels don't develop romance too heavily, erotic romance, aka mainstream, is all the explicit, lustful passion you've come to expect, added to beautiful arcs of longing hearts coming together no matter the odds. Sexual tension builds at every page until the explosive moment between beloved characters. Books in this category are all about couples and their romance sprinkled with sex ranging as hot as explicit. These stories can have the lovemaking/sex scenes removed and still have a complete story.
