But Elodie has other ideas.

Reasons to Read Erotic Romance 

I have a confession to make. When I first began writing erotic romance, I hardly ever read it. I was a product of the online slash fiction market, getting my training from seeing the widely differing quality of writing that was up on Livejournal - all the tricks that worked alongside the ones that made the writing clang in your head. 

I'm not sure why I didn't read it. Possibly I had an image in my head that many people do, that of the books at the back of the shop that everyone's thumbed through and not bought. I still get people dismissing erotic romance as nothing but "smut". And you know what? They're wrong. 

It's true, we read erotic romance to enjoy the sex scenes, but that's only one of the reasons I read it. I'm not ashamed to admit I like a good erotic scene. Why not? Like any other genre, good writing is good writing and draws in the reader. A good sex scene can be sensual, emotional, intense; it's underpinned with meaning and moves the plot along. 

But I also find, for me, that erotic romance tends to have a more satisfying romantic arc. I get impatient with some romance novels for keeping the central couple apart. They don't get together until the very end. In erotic romance, while there may not be a Happy Ever After until the end, the couple (or more, if it's menage) get involved much earlier on and build a relationship gradually, with the reader urging them on. I read one romance where I couldn't even tell who the heroine was supposed to end up with until three pages before the end, and then next thing they were engaged. Didn't work for me. 

And best of all for me, erotic romance can cover any genre. Cowboys? Historical? Sci-fi? There's something for everyone. As a writer it gives me all sorts of opportunities; as a reader, there's so much to choose from. Everyone's happy. 
So I now love to read erotic romance. And let's face it, it's worth it.
