Women’s Fiction and Romance with Erotic Themes


Rape of the Sabine Women by Pietro da Cortona

We are very selectively requesting erotic fiction, but not straight erotica.  There is a very fine line.  We have no interest in works of fiction that are erotic scenes loosely connected with bits of story.  We are looking for women’s fiction and romance with erotic themes and erotic love/sex scenes , about 70,000-90,000 words in length. Stories should include the psychological aspect of erotic play and be written in a mature and intelligent fashion.

Historical Women’s Fiction

Some of our favorite historical writers include Marina Fiorata, Tasha Alexander,  Barbara Erskine, Ciji Ware, Kate Morton and Diana Gabaldon.  These writers mostly fall into the historical fiction/mystery thriller and suspense category or time travel and fantasy, but we also love straight historicals a la John Jakes and Alex Haley.

We’d really love to see stories that seamlessly weave contemporary times with historical stories as in Lauren Willig’s Pink Carnation series or Tara Conklin’s The House Girl.
