When a Romance Isn’t a Romance

Fifty Shades of Gray is not a romance novel.

There appears to be a misunderstanding about what makes up a romance novel.  I’m seeing more and more titles with romantic elements being advertised in the romance genre.

Symphony of Light Book 0.5

One night of sexual pleasure could teach a lesson in love.

Cyril is weary from weeks of traveling the Scottish moors, but his luck takes a turn when he rescues a battered and broken child. To express his gratitude, the boy’s father offers Cyril a night of carnal indulgence with his eldest daughter. Cyril graciously accepts, looking forward to a night of sexual release to ease the loneliness of his travels.

But what the supernatural sex god and deliverer of souls doesn’t expect is to be taught a lesson in love from the young and beautiful Celestine.

In a night of passion, two lost spirits find solace in an impostor’s kiss: one longing for a love that doesn’t yet exist, the other drowning in pain and guilt over love lost. Neither is what they seem…but what they learn will change them forever…

PitchMAS & Other Shenanigans

There aren’t any shenanigans actually, I just like to use that word.

So, PitchMAS.  I learned about it the other day via twitter and looked into it and it seems fairly neat.  So I’m going to try to participate.  Here is my pitch for Stealing the Wolf Prince, a romantic fantasy novel:

An unwilling pawn in a plot to steal a crown, Kiera finds a dark family secret, usurpers to the throne, and a forbidden romance.

If you follow me on twitter, you will see a lot of that.

In other news, my online class is going well.  I seemed to have no problems with the first two chapters.  Ten more to go.  No change in the other items on my to do list.  The holidays are fast approaching and I don’t see myself getting to them any time soon.  Just means I already have my to do list for January!

Review: Desert Dreams

desertDesert Dreams by Sophia Jones

Originally featured in the anthology Fantasies of a Housewife edited by Tina Pollick, “Desert Dreams” is a contemporary romantic short story.

Shaylene Thomas is a busy working mom. Raising her two girls on her own in rural Arizona’s high desert country, each day is an adventure filled with both beauty and challenges– and she wouldn’t trade a moment of it for all the riches in all the skyscrapers in the world. But sometimes she dreams of a warm pair of arms to curl into at night … and sometimes dreams come true. 

This was cute, and funny, and sexy.  Very well written, it really reeled me in and made me care about the characters.  Worth the read though for sure!

Review: The Phantom and the Psychic

PhantomThe Phantom and the Psychic: A Paranormal Erotic Tale by Sophia Jones

A paranormal erotic short story, psychic Alyssa DeAngelo travels to a castle-turned-resort in the Italian countryside to assist its owner with his ghostly problem. There, she encounters Dominicus Romano, a tormented soul who has dwelt within the castle walls for six centuries. Can she help him find peace? 

I really enjoyed this short and steamy story.  The pacing was just right, there was just enough mystery to keep me guessing, and I was very happy at the end.  For $.99 you really can’t go wrong with this paranormal short story.

Review: The Pharaoh and the Curator

pharoahThe Pharaoh and the Curator: A Paranormal Erotic Tale By Sophia Jones

I think that I managed to nab this one while it was free but the $.99 price tag now is still a great bargain.  As the title and the cover implies, this is an erotic tale set in Egypt with an ‘unlucky in love museum curator Michelle Beaumont finds herself in Egypt where she contributes to god Amon Ra’s resurrection.’  You don’t need to imagine what happens next if you buy your own copy.

I thought that this was an easy and steamy read with some adventure thrown in.  I love Egyptian mythology and this really resonated with me.  My only complaint is that I felt it could have been longer.  But can’t that be said about any good story?
