What makes a Romance Story an Erotic Romance Novel?

According to Romance Authors of America , the main feature of Erotic Romance Novels is that “strong, often explicit, sexual interaction is an inherent part of the love story, character growth and relationship development and could not be removed without damaging the storyline. These novels may contain elements of other romance subgenres (such as paranormal, gay, lesbian or historical, etc.).”

Erotic Romance is therefore not just about the bedroom scenes.

In our personal view it is crucial for a great Erotic Romance Novel, that the sex scenes are well embedded into the storyline and, most importantly, add something important to the overall plot.

So you see there is much to think about: great erotic romance book have to have first and foremost an exciting plot! And part of that is a satisfying character development, a believable delivery of the romance and of course smoking hot sex scenes.

The Emden Series by H.L. Swan consists of the books Aiden and Emilia. Both books are full-on Erotica how it should be, and both were so well written they made it onto our Best of the Best Erotica list! However, I must warn you that they are highly addictive and once you start Aiden, you won’t be able to stop reading until Emilia is finished as well!

The first book of the series is Aiden, and then it extends to Emilia. The author H.L. Swan excellently develops and describes Aiden, the namesake of the book and the main character as he truly is.

He’s dominant, fierce, ultra-possessive and has a tender spot for one beautifully naïve girl named Emilia .

The relationship between Aiden and Emilia may not be a smooth ride, but that’s what make them just like us and what makes the plot so loveable. He’s hot headed and she’s naïve enough to set him off. She’s also got a best friend who happens to be Aiden’s sister, who’s headstrong and likes to egg her older brother on every chance she gets.

Their relationship is so relatable that you’d think you were reading a gossip column or overhearing a co-worker's qualms about their significant other.

Real, in-your-face romance in all its gritty, fight-and-makeup, throw no punches glory; that’s what makes Aiden a must-read Sexy Romance Series.

The growth of Aiden's and Emilia's love makes the Emden series so captivating, because you’ll witness firsthand the incredible personal development of Emilia from an innocent and naïve girl to a strong and empowered woman. And you’ll see just how far Aiden comes in learning how to care for a woman in all aspects, including self-sacrifice.

Throughout the series, H.L. Swan make you feel every human emotion possible:

You’ll laugh, cry, be both furious and devastated and possibly want to punch something while reading the Emden Series, but when it’s all over you’ll be thankful you finished both books because the story really is that good.

You’ll feel like the characters have come to life when you start reading. H.L. Swan does a masterful job bringing to life the atmosphere and danger that Aiden and Emilia face and immersing you in their lives so completely that it’s like living those moments with them. Trust me, you won’t regret reading this series!

Even if you’re a novice when it comes to Sexy Romance Novels and your only reference is the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, pick up the Emden series.

It’s got all the great markings of Erotic Romance; smoking hot sex, a strong, dominant man and sweetly submissive woman, plenty of conflict to spice things up and a happily ever after that will make you swoon.
It’s panty-melting good and when your done reading it, you’ll want to start all over!

#2 Ten Hours Duet by Melissa Toppen

Another Erotica Series that deserves a proper applaud is Ten Hours by Melissa Toppen. Some books can be exciting, but it is not very often you come across a story that grabs you heart and soul as the first installment of this Erotica Duet, Ten Hours, can. For fair warning, you’ll want to keep this tissue box close by to get through this story as it will have you on the edge of your emotional seat for the entire ride.

Chocked full of chapter after chapter of emotional turmoil, this is a read that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page simply because is so powerfully written and such an incredible story to put to paper.

The Ten Hours Duet tells the story of Finley and Abel. Melissa Toppen is at the top of her game as she pens this love story. Finley doesn’t want to believe the diagnosis she’s given and when she meets Abel, you won’t want to believe it either. Fate can be a twisty witch sometimes and completely unfair to boot.

Melissa takes fate and her readers on a wild ride as she weaves the ten hours Abel gets with Finley as both tragically romantic and horribly sweet in this superbly written Erotic Romance.

After all, what would you do with just ten hours if that was all you were given?

Remember, if you want to get the full effect of What Comes After (book two of the series), you should first read Ten Hours. What Comes Next continues Abel’s tale and trust me, this too, will be cause to run for the tissue box. But don’t fear, it’s not all gloom and doom and will both warm your heart and break it a little as you finish up the tale end of this beautifully sculpted duet.

#3 Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

While Outlander isn’t a new discovery and does not have so many Sex-scenes as others, it still makes the list for Best High-Heat Sexy Romance Series. But if you’ve caught the Netflix series based on the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon, you’ll understand a bit about why this series is so amazing! It ties together everything that makes a story great.

Love, passion, fierce conflicts and differences of opinion, tragedy, heartache and a hopeful ending that wraps everything up nicely and offers a final flourish to viewers and readers alike!

On the off chance that you haven’t read this series or seen the TV show; Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a WWII military nurse who is reunited with her husband Frank during a ‘second honeymoon’ of sorts that they spend together in Scotland.

Frank is anxious to retrace his family roots and Claire is thankful for a little rest and time away from battle. Life for Claire, however, is about to get turned upside down and spun one-hundred and eighty degree. Quite unexpectedly Claire finds herself snapped back in time to the 16th Century Scotland and must quickly learn to survive in a world that is so vastly different than her 20th Century existence. She wastes no time endearing herself to Jamie Fraser, a young Scottish warrior whom she eventually falls for, given her expansive time in her new world, despite trying desperately to find a way back to her own time and her husband. Talk about a great read!

It’s true that this series doesn’t contain the heart stopping, blood pumping sexual undertones that most nifty books and series do, but its other clear advantages help to give a well-rounded love story that makes those softer romantic interludes that much sexier.

It’s truly a great option for anyone looking to dip their toes in Erotic Romance. Love, compassion, passion, time travel, romance, betrayal, fighting to survive and so many more aspects of this series make it one of the few soft Erotic Romances to make a list like this. Sexual fantasies are unique and personal, so is this highly steamy Romance Series! And why not add a Historical Romance to your list, which even though does not have sex scenes described in all detail, but builds up immense sexual tension between the main protagonists.

Trust us: Outlander will spark your imagination to a new level and if you give it a try, you’ll certainly see why it succeeded where so many others have failed.
