Ellora's Cave Week

All this week we will be highlighting publisher Ellora's Cave and their authors, editors and the hot men who grace their covers.
For those who have no idea who EC is well, they are an award winning publisher of Romantica.  What is Romantica?  According to Ellora's Cave who own the rights to the term defines it as:

Romantica® is the name for the line of erotic romance novels published by Ellora’s Cave Publishing. Erotic romance is defined by us as: any work of literature that is both romantic and sexually explicit in nature. Within this genre, the main protagonists develop "in love" feelings for one another that culminate in a monogamous relationship.
Romantica® doesn't begin from the premise that women's sexual experiences are dirty and therefore in need of being perfumed up by flowery phrases. The premise of Romantica™ is that women's sexual experiences are legitimate, positive, and beautiful.
Ellora's Cave Romantica® must be both erotic and romantic.

~ The sexual relationship must be integral to and an important element of the storyline and the character development. Sex scenes should contribute to furthering the plot or affecting the development of the romantic relationship or the growth of the characters.

~ The story must include abundant and explicit sex and sexual tension, starting early and continuing throughout. Sex scenes must be described in graphic detail and explicit wording, not delicate euphemisms or purple prose.

~ The story must meet the definition of a romance novel: the primary focus must be on the development of a romantic relationship, and there must be an emotionally satisfying committed ending for the main characters.
We also publish  EXOTIKA™, our line of quality erotica for women. These stories focus on a woman’s sexual journey or adventures. Although they may contain a romance, they do not have to include that as the primary focus, the relationship does not need to be monogamous or end with commitment.

As it continues to grow Ellora's Cave plans to launch an Ellora's Cave for men real soon.  Find out more at their website and while you are there do some shopping http://www.jasminejade.com/default.aspx
