Valentine’s Day is almost here and we thought, what better way to celebrate than to talk about Romance!  We are starting a new series where we will be covering all topics related to the romance genre.  Kicking things off this week we will talk about subgenres, tropes and character types and give you some recommendations along the way.  This will be perfect for the newbie romance reader feeling a bit overwhelmed about where to start.  But maybe it may have some information that you may not have been clear on if you’re a seasoned romance reader.  After this week, this will become a monthly feature so please be sure to let us know what other topics you’d like us to cover!



Under the Covers is graciously giving away

Every day you get a chance to enter to win a different book!

Hard to pick one.

I’ve read the Fifty Shades trilogy and I am one of the ones who actually really loved the books. I think they are my most reread books.

This is I think one of the genres that gets the most confusion with Erotica. I think like you mention the important difference here is the emotional development of the story.

I enjoyed the Fifty Shades trilogy but I would say Sylvia Day is a better writer.


I love the Indebted series by Pepper Winters and would describe it as partly erotic


Hmmm I would say cherise sinclair


Damon Suede, Alison Tyler, Josephine Myles, Tara Lain, and Gregory L. Norris are all great!


My favorite is Kresley Cole’s Game Maker series. I also enjoy her paranormal romance series, Immortals After Dark.
