The list author says: "This is a list of my favorite contemporary and historical erotic romance books. I will warn you these are not for the faint of heart new to erotic books, as some contain bdsm, multiple partners, same sex, toys, etc. These books are heavy on the sex but also have terrific plots and characters, which makes them very enjoyable reads. Some of them will leave you emotionally drained, while others will just leave you breathless. Enjoy!"
