I love talking about steamy romances, so this sounds like it's going to be a fun group!


message 18: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (eroticalover) | 3 comments Thank you for the invite!! I'm an avid erotic romance reader/reviewer!! I've only been reading this genre for about 9 months and writing reviews since January so I'm kind of new. But you can look at my list of reviews and see that I dove straight in! I've always loved to read, but when I found out that the authors of this genre would actually TALK to me and become my friend (online)....well, I haven't read anything else. I mean, Stephen King sure never asked me what I thought about anything....lol.
MC series are my very favorite, but I'll read anything. If it's hot, I'll give it a try!


message 19: by E.M. (new)

E.M. Denning (emdenning) | 14 comments Thanks for the invite. I'm an avid romance reader turned author who has her very first book coming out next month. I read all kinds of things, but I'm a real sucker for a good love story. My favorite recent reads are Unteachable by Leah Raeder, Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and the Beyond series by Kit Rocha. :)

SunflowerJ (goodreadscomsunflowershj) | 2 comments Hi All. Thanks for inviting me Chantel.

I'm an indie/self-published author and a poet. I focus on works of non-ficton. I am a jack of all trades (master of at least three :-}).

I like going to the beach; but because I watch so many documentaries, I'm always searching for sharks and jelly fish. Currently, I'm studying to go to law school. I am a fan of comedy and horror movies. R. L. Stine is still my favorite author, as well as Stephen King (although I've only seen his movies...that's how good he is. I've never read his books & he's still my favorite). I like writing but would rather someone else edit.

I am HAPPILY MARRIED to a man that God showed me in my sleep when I was a little girl. He's the most wonderful person that's ever graced my heart. I don't fully know how to operate on Goodreads, but that won't stop me from trying. It's nice to read/meet all of you.

OMG YES! Beyond Jealousy is my favorite though. Ace, Rachael and Cruz...so hot together. OMG. I'm actually reading it again for probably the fourth time.

Karen Gordon | 18 comments Thank you for the invite to join the group. I'm an indie author, mom, wife, and all around supporter of women. I write and love to read strong female characters who own their sexuality and sexual choices. I look for steamy romances where there are never any apologies or back peddling or "I just couldn't help myself." I'm open to hot romance in all forms and love to find new authors with new angles. Some of my favorite series have been "Outlander", "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" and "The Bronze Horseman". Can't wait to meet you all and share recommendations.

Cara | 4 comments Hi I'm Cara - Thanks for the invite - I love a hot steamy romance. I read a wide range of genres depending on my mood and have just had my first novel published recently.

Kendra (dannelette) | 2 comments Hello everyone, I love to read steamy romance the steamier the better. I have also become become a huge Bollywood movie fan, so when I am not reading I am looking for Bollywood movies to watch.


message 29: by Jessica (last edited Oct 27, 2015 02:01PM) (new)

Jessica | 10 comments Yes,this is a repeat but edited and a bit more in depth of what is going on in my life right now.
Thanks for the invite Chantel! I am a army veteran wife with a disabled veteran husband of the Iraq war and I have 5 beautiful daughters who are my world. I live in sunny kingman, Arizona . I have recently found out that I am not in the greatest health myself, even though I am my husband's full time caregiver and SAHM mom which I only have 1 left at home. I have been having serious migraines and extremely high blood pressure. I just thought it was normal stress of being a caregiver etc. Well, it's not. I haven't been properly taking the time to care for myself and now I don't have a choice if I want to see my daughters grow up! It kills me to write this cause as I do I have full time oxygen on me now and they've put in for so many tests I might as well live in the radiology center. As well as the lab for blood draws. I know some of you don't care about what others have going on, but I also know that a lot of you do. So if you could send some positive thoughts and prayers my way I'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
I am a very avid reader and reviewer for many authors. I have my own personal blog, and a Facebook blog page as well. When I hit 500 members I am doing a giveaway! And anyone who has liked my page is entered into the giveaway!

message 30: by Peter (new)

Peter Glassman (pglassma) | 2 comments Glad to meet another author circle. I'm a recent retired physician (Addictionologist and anesthesiologist) and started writing in 2003. While I favor medical thrillers my writing includes crime drama, paranormal, fantasy and historical settings. The common thread to them all is intimate romance which is a part of living. I love to read and write at least one chapter a day in an ongoing work.

I'm following the series through every form of social media. I love when they make casting announcements and I bow to the greatness of the costume department.

Martha Sweeney (marthasweeney) | 7 comments Hi! Thanks for inviting me to join this group. My name is Martha Sweeney and I'm an indie author. I've recently starting reading for pleasure since I was never really into it during high school - hated all the summer reading books I was given. LOL I started my first novel after assisting my husband with his, The Harem. I enjoy reading now more than ever and I also really enjoy writing. I love to chat when I'm not busy writing, so feel free to reach out to me anytime. :)

I absolutely love to read and have become completely addicted to Goodreads and Netgalley. Pick up quite a bit of books from the Romance categories but also love a wide variety of other books and like to switch it up. Welcome all new friends requests too as I love to see what others have picked up and their thoughts on books.

Jesse Joren (jessejoren) | 2 comments Thank you for the invite! I'm Jesse Joren, and I'm an indie author who writes dark-ish stories of all lengths. I like heroines who aren't perfect and have a wild ride on the way to true love. (But there MUST be love.)

Equally important to writing, I want to support my fellow authors with positive encouragement whenever I can.

message 46: by A.M. (new)

A.M. Helen | 11 comments Hi,

Thank you very much for the invite. I’m an indie author, self-publishing erotic romance, slightly darker for a more daring reader. I read all types of genres but am hooked on romance, though I like a good mystery too! I like to write about interesting heroines and imperfect heroes - who simply can’t fight the power of true love.

Great to meet you all!
