10 Erotic Romance Novels Worth Reading

Updated on April 16, 2020

Pursuing a rather tedious subject called law, Priya Barua still tries to find time to follow her passion for blogging.

I went through a phase when I only read erotic novels and an occasional Mills & Boon. I think I’ve read most of the books on Goodreads Popular Erotic Novels List. Frankly, I don’t quite agree with the list. Popular does not mean Good. Hence, I’ve compiled this list of my favorite erotic-romance novels which I hope you too will enjoy.

10 Erotic Novels Worth Reading

Katy Evans

Susan Elizabeth Philips
Willing Victim
Cara Mckenna
All the Possibilities
Nora Roberts
Aftershock and Afterburn
Slyvia Day

1. Fixed on You

Laurelin Paige

Rarely do I see a storyline as organized and carefully crafted as Laurelin Paige’s Fixed on You series. First thing’s first, it has a real, developed story, and quite a lovely one, which is often missing from your usual erotic hardliners. I love the dialogues, I love the characters, I love the chemistry between them. And I also love that for a change the characters don't have an abused past. They have a past, but not the type we usually read about.

2. Beautiful Stranger

Christina Lauren

If you are looking for good sex, with a hot British million-dollar venture capitalist and a one of a kind, hardworking heiress, no less, then you’ve got the right book. This is a standalone book that you should definitely read for the sex. I like that the girl is in finance, equally rich and broken from a previous relationship and that it is the guy who heals her; it's usually the other way around for most novels.

3. Womanizer

Katy Evans

Now, the sex is not very explicit, but it is sort of cute. The dialogues are witty; the banter would make you smile stupidly and it is more of a romance novel than an erotic one. It’s sweet, a little sexy and a whole lot of fun. I have read a couple of other Katy Evans novels and I think this one stands out.

4. Call Me Irresistible

Susan Elizabeth Philip

This is a romance novel and there’s not enough sex, if that's what you're looking for. But it is amazing, otherwise, it would not have been on the list. The story-line (again I am emphasizing the story-line) is beautifully written. The girl is spunky and the guy is gorgeous and it starts out as an I-first-hate-you-and-then-I-love-you story, but like I said it is beautifully crafted and a definite must-read to warm your cold heart and satiate your thirst for romance.

5. Willing Victim

Cara Mckenna

Yes, back to sex. This one is a full-blown erotic novel aimed to make you...you know what. A standalone with lots of sex and roleplay and a little bit of BDSM, and trust me, it’s written wonderfully. I am not much of a BDSM reader because it sort of makes me cringe, but this book, this book gets it. It doesn’t over-do the stuff. This book, however, is not for you if you are looking for billionaire playboys with a broken past. The guy is NOT a billionaire nor is the girl and it’s a nice change.

6. All the Possibilities

Nora Roberts

You’ve probably heard of Nora Roberts, possibly even read some of her books. I don’t know why, but from all the books that I read by this author, this one definitely stands apart. It’s a romance novel just like a million others, but this one was…sweet. The story follows a US senator and how he tries to woo the former first daughter of the United States. I love both the characters which is rare for me (usually I like either the girl or the boy) and like I have already said, there is only one adjective I can find: sweet.

7. Aftershock and Afterburn

Sylvia Day

You might have read Sylvia Day’s more popular Cross series and maybe even liked it. But I have sort of come to a saturation point where I can’t read books with characters who have an abused past and a series which is being dragged on for way too long. Anyway, this book is hot, sexy and just about everything that you want in an erotic novel. I love the guy in this novel: he is pretty much one of my favorite erotic novel heroes of all time and the girl is fine, not spineless; that’s all I need anyway.

8. Mistress of the Groom

Susan Napier

It’s a romance novel that is well-written with a lovely storyline and characters that are tough and hot. There is sexual tension and there is one really hot sex scene which makes it worthwhile the read. I loved the way the story started and how it unfolded and concluded in a sweet, romantic way. There are few romance novels that are well crafted and well-written and this is obviously one of them.

9. The Law of Attraction

N.M Silber

Lawyer Love: Yah. I couldn’t really make out if it was an erotic novel or a romance one. It was like…sort of in-between, which makes it even more delightful. I love the fact that there are no silly quarrels and break-ups. It’s a fun book with fun dialogues and a couple of sexy scenes and two very lovable characters.

10. The Delta of Venus

Anais Nin

I haven’t read the book. It’s on my wish list but I haven’t read it. But even without reading the book, I know it’s going to be absolutely mind-blowing. We all know that when it comes to erotic novels, it’s Anais Nin. And that’s why it is actually sad that I haven’t read the novel…or any of her novels, yet. But I am going to fix that and I’ll come back to you.

Which of the above books have you read?

        Most of the above novels are written by a woman. What would you say to a 'different' romantic (plus erotica) novel written by an 80 year old male?

        Hey @Diana. No, I haven't read the book. I surely will. There are tons of erotic literature but it's really difficult to find a good one. Thanks for the comment.

        My summer vacation reads are mostly entire erotic literature. This is a great list (thanks!). I am surprised to see that author Jamie Schmidt didn't make the list. She has so many FANTASTIC erotic romance novels. I recently read Book 1 of the "Club Inferno" series called "Heat" (http://jamiekschmidt.weebly.com/). I could not put this book down. The sex scenes are soooo much fun to read and I absolutely fell in love with main character, Max, a super sexy martial arts instructor/DOM. Club Inferno is a super exclusive resort that allows it's guest to live out their wildest sexual fantasies. Mallory has come to get away from an abusive ex and soon finds that Max is everything she needs to move on. I cannot recommend this book enough. Hope you and your readers check it out

        Thanks for the comment Kara. I will definitely try The Queen's Consort and get back to you. And I would recommend you really read Call me Irrestibbile.

        This is a great list! I can't wait to read Fixed On You and Call Me Irresistible especially, but all of these sound great. Thanks for the recommendation.

        One of my favorite erotica novels is The Queen's Consorts by Kele Moon. The sex scenes and the plot are excellent, but because it is menage, it's not for everyone.

        I also enjoyed The Billionaire's Obessions by J.S. Scott, but if you've reached a saturation point for drawn-out series with characters with an abused past, then this is probably not a book for you.
