Just for Fun-Lusty Books for Women

Romance novels are my favorite vice. They've come a long way since the days of Barbara Cartland when they always ended with a kiss — a divine, earth-moving kiss, but just a kiss.

Modern romance novels are erotica for women. Unlike male porn, there's only one couple involved and by the end of the book they're in love and probably married. Along the way you get plenty of foreplay and sex. A good romance has an exciting plot and interesting characters, but a fun time and a happy ending are guaranteed. Most importantly, they put you in the mood for some real romance with your sweetie.

Here are a few of the best historical romances and literotica, with a little bit of fantasy thrown in.

1. Surrender to a Wicked Spy by Celeste Bradley

Our heroine must deal with her new husband's extremely large endowment while fighting evil spies. A set of dildos also plays a pivotal role in the plot.
