Looking for someone like me?

I write the sort of stories I like to read. I must confess I don't read very much erotic romance which probably accounts for the fact that my erotic romances aren't like most others. At least I don't think they are. Not so long ago, I bought around 30 erotic romances in one fell swoop - okay it was a discount store but they were by a major publisher - and of the 30, not one was anything like mine. Some of the 30, I liked, but again - big confession - most I didn't like. I've realised that I'm not keen on books where the plot is sexually driven at the expense of other elements. I like a good story. I like deep characters. I like them to learn something and I like my books to have themes. Maybe the themes in my stories are missed by most but I know they're there. They're the driver that helps me write.
So ---- the challenge. Who else writes erotic romance like mine?

Hmm, I'll swing by the asylum this weekend to see if the loons are writing any erotica. That's the best bet I think. :)

Thank you, Fred. I knew I could rely on you!

I dont know of any writer who writes any genre as well as you. The few erotic romances I've read, other than yours, bore the crap out of me. I'm too used to your intense plots, well paced and unique scenes, with a constant thread of humor that doesnt spin off into slapstick comedy.
