Romantic, steamy adult fantasy romances. Deals of convenience, betrayal, political intrigue, dueling families, rivals to lovers to enemies, immortals w/longstanding wars and deep histories. Ballroom dances that end with a dagger to the throat. Rich world building & magic systems

For the first time, I’m opening up to romance in the adult space, particularly contemporary stories that have a lot of layers, have a great backdrop, and an ensemble cast. I’ll be pretty picky here, but here are a few of my faves from the last year 🤍

Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡

I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!

💕 Romance 🏳️‍🌈

Including LGBTQ+ romance, YA romance and romantic comedy. I would love an adult Heartstopper or Love Frankie, as well as rom com that is laugh-out-loud funny.

(basically, communication, respect, and consent is ✨super sexy✨ and my personal preference is sweet warm fuzzy romance with a smidge of heat versus hot steamy romance where sex is the focus)

a moderate amount of heat is fabulous, but i’m also okay with little to no explicit scenes (and this includes any variation of asexual romances!!). i’m probably not the best fit for a high amount of explicit scenes or erotica

in romance, i really want examples of healthy romances! it’s completely okay for characters to make mistakes (please, have them make mistakes lol) but i do NOT want books that idealize (or even just accept) toxic, codependent, or abusive behaviors in romantic relationships

•i will actively be looking for adult romance (with caveats, see below!)

On my #MSWL Any/all of the following:
1. Quirky/dark humor
2. Paranormal crime syndicate
3. Unusual fairy tale retellings with magic
ALWAYS high heat, HEA/HFN, Fast paced, romance in sci-fi or fantasy sub genre. Prefer under 75K words.

With fall teasing the air, I'd love to settle down this weekend with a pumpkin latte and dark, angst-filled, #YA romance. #mswl

I love the word adorkable and everything it conveys. Pls give me a YA novel with adorkable characters witg just as an adorkable plot. Some romance would be nice. I need something quirky. Thank you. #MSWL.
