Discussion thread for the sub-genre of romance, Sweet (also viewed as clean).

Grace Elliot (httpwwwgoodreadscomgraceelliot) Where do you draw the line between 'sweet' and 'sensous' romance?
I had to decide whether my debut regency 'A Dead Man's Debt' was sensous or erotic. In the end I plumped for sensous because the intimate acts are loving and not kinky in any way. Imagine my surprise when the book I loving crafted, but cringe when I think of my mum reading, was classed in one online book store as 'Sweet.'
Sweet!!! Blimey.

Hi Grace,
From what I have been told, Sweet Romance is basically a romance with no sex. Well, the sex scenes are deleted, but they are implied. There's usually the regular sexual tension and stuff too though.
