I’m a fan of romance, no lie. It’s my preferred genre to read and write. Life is full of heartache so why not craft a happy ending.
I’m also a fan of some steam heat in my stories. A few well placed words and the characters come alive under my fingertips (and their own).
So now I pose the question. How steamy can a short story be? Is there a preference of saving that eroticism for later in the story, or start out with a bang?
