Across the Romance Subgenres

Carrie is currently acquiring:

 I’m acquiring romance in all romance genres, especially contemporary, erotic and LGBTQ, which can range from realistic to ménage+. For paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy romances, hook me with traditional tropes. I adore great dialogue, and I need to be invested in what the characters want and why they can’t (initially) be happy together. Some special interests: adrenaline junkies, dark homecomings, anti-heroes, gentle bruisers, and taboo sexual themes!
