  1. Is there a length you are striving for on these submissions. I looked through the call twice and didn’t see it.

    What heat level are you looking for?

      Hi Mia

      Sensual stories, but the heat level should grow organically from the characters, their situations and emotions. We are not looking for erotica, and closed door is also fine on occasion. Though the heat level may be sweet, the sexual tension must be strong. We are looking for strong sexual tension we know the readers want to see more of that in our line.

  3. I have the perfect submission. However the hero is a Comanche but a strong and sexy horseman. This is a captive situation. I would like to submit but the file is the wrong type. Is there a way to submit a Docs file?

  4. Ohh, excited. Must think on this. I love historicals and I love me some cowboys!

    How about a story set on a wagon train? It’s sweet but sensual.
