Hot Off The Press From Faery Editor Frances Sevilla...

We are FAERY ROSES... we are paranormal, supernatural, time-travelers or space travelers and we are all about romance.

How hot and spicy can our line get? Well, personally, I’m a big fan of “the hotter the better.” But there’s something to be said for sexual tension. Nothing beats two souls searching for each other with a gut-wrenching need who have to overcome a conflict keeping them apart. We ache for them, we cry for them, we lust for them.

Mmm, star-crossed lovers finding each other across time and space, or different realms or planets, fighting a common goal, or just fighting to stay together...FAERY ROSE is all of that and more.

Heat levels vary. During sexual scenes our authors may close the door or leave it wide open. So what do you think the difference is? Language. Description. Details. Yes, all that and more. Language drives the rating. It’s a whole different story. While we keep our description from turning into Purple Prose without being crude, our FAERY ROSES may blush pale pink or blaze hot pink, but if they turn SCARLET, you’ll find those in the Wilder Rose Press catalogue.

I love the freedom the Wild Rose allows when it comes to love scenes. I think they should naturally evolve as chemistry between the H&H develops, and be unique to the story. I enjoyed this post and the way you worded it. :)

I completely agree. :) *SIGH* Besides, once they finally get together - it's super explosive and soooo satisfying. :) :)

That really says it all in my book. Hot is good, hotter is better, but sexual tension is a must.
