Closed door romance. Sweet and clean.
Steamy reads with spicy bedroom scenes. May contain one or two sex scenes but less detailed and more suggestive. No filthy language (in the bedroom), but the characters still might have a sailor mouth. Vanilla.
Hot and highly detailed steamy romantic encounters. Open door romance. Story may contain one or two sex scenes, but lots more flirting and innuendo. Often these titles are slow-burn and the character may still have their v-card. French vanilla.
Hot and highly detailed steamy romantic encounters. Open door romance. Flirting and innuendo is highly likely. May contain multiple spicy encounters in and out of the bedroom. These books tend to be a bit edgier than the previous heat rating. Hot french vanilla spice.
Spicy reads that are the most explicit. These may contain BDSM elements such as spanking. Books have a kinky element to them. These books don't know what vanilla means, they're off-the-chart raw and seductive. These tend to be my earliest works, originally published under Allison West or Ravyn Rayne. They have since been republished and contain the same sensual content.
