I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

Erotic and Erotica Romance

Confused over what they mean? Some think they mean the same thing, but they don't. I write erotic romance. I always thought erotic romance was a story with a plot and a happily ever after, while erotica is basically just sex and doesn't have a HEA. I've also heard erotic described as soft porn. We all know what hard porn is but I looked it up just in case.

Pornography -  television programs, magazine, books, etc. that are regarded as emphasizing the sensuous or sensational aspects of a nonsexual subject and stimulating a compulsive interest in their audience.

I also decided to look up erotic and erotica, and post their meanings here, google is a wonderful resource. I checked two different sites and the definitions are the same. Looks like erotica and porn have something in common. For the record, I don't write either. All of my stories have a HEA or happily for now ending.

It would be nice if some book sites (where I add my books for sale and promo) knew the distinction because more than once I've had to check off the box to erotica because erotic romance wasn't an option.

Erotic - Dictionary -
subject to or marked by strong sexual desire
arousing or satisfying sexual desire: an erotic dance
of, relating to, or treating of sexual love; amatory: an erotic novel.

Erotica - Dictionary -
literature or art dealing with sexual love

Merriam Webster defines erotic as: of, devoted to, or tending to arouse sexual love or desire, strongly marked or affected by sexual desire. While erotica is:literary or artistic works having an erotic theme or quality, depictions of things erotic
