Scarlet Rose is The Wild Rose Press's erotic line.
Replete with passion, our erotic romances are highly sensual stories that range from sexy, light-hearted romps to dark erotic journeys of forbidden pleasure. We encourage you to paint vivid images, explore your characters' desires, take them down uninhibited paths that push the envelope. Seduce our readers and make us squirm in our seats.
We're looking for stories that feature a strong sexual premise and invest in an emotional relationship. We aren't looking for sex just for the sake of putting two naked bodies on a page. Give your characters a reason to act on their desires. Give them goals and conflict that will drive them together and then tear them apart. But remember, our readers expect a happy ending, for Scarlet Rose that's not always a happily ever after but merely the promise of one.
Make it hot, but make it a romance. Above all, make sure the reader is as satisfied at the end of the book as the hero and heroine.
Your heroine can be soft and feminine, even virginal, but she must know her own mind and stand firm with/against the hero until her ultimate surrender.
Alpha or Beta, your hero should be masculine, devilishly handsome and decidedly focused on capturing the heroine--mind, body and soul. The deeper the eroticism, the more Alpha your hero should be.
All characters must be eighteen years of age, regardless of the time period. Please read our guidelines for what we will not allow within any of the lines.
