I currently have a book titled Surrendering Lily that's in editing with Loose Id. It's a BDSM/Domestic Discipline story about a full-figured heroine who has a teacher seeking to find her a new Dominant. She's shy and curious, but full of spirit and passion. I've started, 3 days ago, on another book titled Worth the Wait. I'm really excited about this one! Spunky curvy brunette is going to be knocked off her fuzzy socks by a ruthless business mogel. She doesn't like him and he, for the love of god, can't figure out why she has to wear so many colorful skirts! It's a match made in romantic chaos heaven. Just finished reading Marty and looking forward to starting Alex's story. So...what have ya'll got in the works?

Francesca Hawley (FrancescaHawley) | 8 comments Hi. I just joined the group and write erotic romance featuring plus-size heroines and the heroes that love them. :-) My most recent release is a shapeshifter story called Leader of the Pack which released December 21. My current WIP is a follow-up shapeshifter story called Freeze Frame. Nico is a photographer that Cyn hires to shoot the catalog for her clothing line.

That's one hot cover! I'll add it to my curvy heroine listopia. I can't wait to read it. I'm a sucker for a delicious shifter.

Francesca Hawley (FrancescaHawley) | 8 comments The cover gods were VERY good to me. Grin!


message 9: by Rosanna (new)

Rosanna Leo (rosanna_leo) I'm reading The Monster of Fame by Aimée Duffy . It's mentioned often that the singer heroine is curvy, and taking part in an American Idol-type competition against rail-thin women. It's a fun, sexy read.

Hilda (babs1ha) | 21 comments Is there a way where this group can create a list of books with curvy chicas. And next to the book- list it what kinds it it. Romance,erotica,historical..etc . Just an idea? Let me know. :)

Pauline Allan (paulineallan) | 547 comments Mod
Hi Hilda! I have created a listopia called Sexy Curves. I have many titles over there. I'll see if I can create sub categories for them. My goodreads title list for my reads is broken down into categories and I have a category for curves! I hope that helps. :)


message 13: by Hilda (new)

Hilda (babs1ha) | 21 comments Hi Pauline! Yes it does help me. I was just thinking for the new member who join the group and are looking for suggestions. That's all. Thanks for all your help.

I ended up really enjoying it, Pauline. I enjoyed the author's writing style a lot, and it was edited well.

Thanks Pauline- I'll reach out to Aimee. I haven't read her others, but if you don't mind, I can extend an invite to some of our other curvy-girl-lovin' author pals.

Squee!! I'm so excited to have other curvy writers to share support. That's a great idea!

Robin Danner (RobinDanner) | 11 comments Hi! I'm a new member. (Rosanna Leo pointed me in this direction.) As a rubenesque lady myself, I love to write heroines who aren't stick thin. I actually wrote a plus size model RomCom a few years back under my Christy Gissendander persona. As Robin Danner, I'm gearing up to do a historical with a plumpier heroine. There's just not enough of those in historicals! I look forward to reading more about ya'll's upcoming works as well!

Hi Robin!! *waves* I'm glad you joined us. Can we see a cover/covers of your books so we can add them to our must read list?


message 25: by Robin (new)

Robin Danner (RobinDanner) | 11 comments I see ya'll have covers in your comments...how do you do that? (I don't know html. Help!)But several of my characters are curvy, but the one where the heroine's size is mentioned the most is Overnight Sensation. I'll include a link to my site since I don't know how to include the pic here. The book is listed here at Goodreads though.

The one I'm gearing up to write soon will be the fifth book in my Princes series. I'll be sure to let ya'll know when I get it ready!

Robin, when you reply, you'll see a golden field above the reply box that says "add book/cover." Click that and use the cover option. Follow the prompts to add your book and voila!

Lynn Richards (lynnrichards) | 38 comments Hello,

Just wanted to say hello and thank you to Pauline - we need more discussion groups - curvy heroines have been ignored for too many years. Its wonderful that the success of some indies and small presses have allowed our heroines to find love...

I haven't read many of you - put plan to as soon as I can, I have read Francesa's Protect and Defend - one of the first books when I started reading e-books and thought why aren't there more out ther like that.

So was born Lynn Richards. My best friend and I write erotic stories about curvy women and plan to write a lot more - we're starting a wolfie series - first one due out last January/first of FEbruay - fingers crossed.

Just wanted to say hi and thank you again

message 43: by Robin (new)

Robin Danner (RobinDanner) | 11 comments I'm reading Male Review by Lillian Grant. Male Review (Reigning Men, #2) by Lillian Grant The heroine has self-esteem issues about her body. She's very short, but a bit too much around the middle. She's very much a realistic character. The sex is blazing hot and the humor has me rolling. This is is the 2nd book in a trilogy, but I'm finding book 2 to be my favorite so far!

Pauline Allan (paulineallan) | 547 comments Mod
I've checked out that title an always wondered about it! I'll download it.


message 45: by Robin (new)

Robin Danner (RobinDanner) | 11 comments I'm only about a 100 pages in, Pauline, but I'm loving it so far. Lillian is one of the Love, Lust, and Laptop gals..the creator in fact, I believe. I've been on tenterhooks to read the 3rd book because Michael (the stripper) is one of my favorites!


message 46: by Hilda (new)

Hilda (babs1ha) | 21 comments Hello ladies. Added new books to the bookshelf. I'm trying to created the biggest bookshelf out there for curvy ladies. There is a lot out there but it kinda hard to find them especially if they have more than 100 pages. Lol I have some on my personal bookshelf if u want to look. I haven't place some of them caused I haven't read them or I wasn't able to confirm them. Also trying to update bookshelf on the other group but I need to be on my PC . Enjoy and stay warm.
