My new book Beyond Eden is not an ordinary romance. For one, it’s a M/M/F ménage, which is becoming more common, but it still far from typical. It’s also a BDSM romance with dark, edgy themes and complex characters. So, no, it’s not ordinary by any stretch of the imagination—but, have no question, it is a romance.
I thrive off finding passion and true love in places one wouldn’t usually expect, and I’m extremely proud of achieving that with Beyond Eden. Despite the edgier aspects of the story, the one thing that has resonated with reviewers is that at its core, Beyond Eden is an extremely passionate love story, which is what I think all erotic romance should be.
Erotica has been around for centuries; it’s an art form that is often censured, yet coveted behind closed doors and I’m excited to see it finally finding a footing in the romance market. It makes it possible for writers like me, who write romance outside the box, to spread our wings. Trust me, flowery prose does not a love story make. True, undeniable love comes in all sorts of different packages, and the erotic romance market has a plethora of those.
Despite sex being a lot of what helps the story blossom, the love stories in erotic romance can be just as potent, if not more so than traditional romance. There are no closed doors, the words are less flowery, but more real to life and I think that makes identifying with erotic romance easier than people realize. When you can relate to the characters, their passion and love become very real to you and it makes for an extremely potent reading experience.
Take a dip into erotic waters. Try a romance that’s a bit edgier than you’re used to, but be warned, the forbidden can be addictive!
