historical romance:
**more queer historical please and F/F in particular is something I really want to see more of
**Regency, Victorian, Tudor, Highlanders, Vikings are the main ones we're seeking but I'll look at anything
**I prefer moderate to steamy historical not sweet
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · Sep 24

contemporary romance:
**small town settings
**stories with dogs
**I will consider any heat level from sweet to steamy
**characters with interesting or atypical careers
**non-US settings - personally love Italy but ANYTHING is fine
**winter/holiday romance
**queer romance
#MSWL

the rest of this is ROMANCE ❀️
**rom-coms - and I'd really like to see some diversity here in the characters, their identities, and their backgrounds
**it's gotta be funny but not like slapstick humor - give me witty banter, and funny scenarios that aren't over the top

also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

still on adult romance:
*romantic suspense - any kind
*serious or fun, dark theme or light
*paranormal or sci-fi element is ok too
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

still on adult romance:
*sexy romantic comedy
*looking for a fresh take on tried-and-true tropes
*looking for laugh-out-loud humor
*looking for unique situations/conflicts and character relationships
*a fun story that also has emotional depth and resonance
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 12 Sep 2018

moving on to adult romance now:
*this goes for everything, but I will repeat it - more diverse characters and a range of diversity rep
*I consider any heat level, but "moderate" is my favorite, not too sweet and not too spicy, it's just right for me

still on NA:
I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 16 Feb 2018

here is my current #mswl:
YA romance - all genres
single title romance - all genres (see yesterday's tweets for what "single title" means)
category/series romance - contemp or historical
womens fiction with romance
NA romance - contemp or sci-fi
LGBTQ romance in any of the above

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 12 Jan 2018

a basic #mswl tweet for new followers & a refresher for the rest of you
*mainly* I am seeking...
YA fantasy, any sub-genre
YA sci-fi, any sub-genre
YA contemp, anything from fluffy rom-com to dark thrillers
all must have a strong romantic element & a high concept hook

Lydia Sharp πŸ“šβ€β˜•πŸŒˆ @lydia_sharp · 21 Jun 2017

a reminder, I still want this: a new twist on a YA Sherlock, any genre
must also have romance
