How sweet or spicy a romance is in the story
No romance, non fiction or self help books.
Sweet Romance is a 1 heat level. There’s kissing and hugging.
Closed doors. (Like Hallmark movies)
Sexy Romance is like 2 flames of heat. Closed doors, demonstrative, but language isn’t very explicit.
May use bad or potty mouth language. (Like PG rated movies)
Super Sexy is a 3 heat level. Open doors. Something in between Sexy and Steamy.
Some explicit language. No more than three to four love scenes max. (Like Rated R movies)
Steamy Romance is a 4 heat level, open doors with some explicit language.
More than four love scenes. (Like Steamier Rated R movies)
Erotic Romance is a 5 heat level. It’s open doors, very explicit language.
More than steamy, more than four love scenes, but not Erotica. ( Like 50 Shades)
When the heat level goes a little over.
