In today's society, sex sells. I know that when I pick up a romance novel, regardless of what type of romance it is, I expect to find some hot and heavy scenes.
I will admit I have read some really good young adult novels that peak your interest without all the details, but what I am writing is not young adult.
So, I'm asking myself a very valid question, how much sex is enough? I don't want my novel to be overflowing with it, but I need to put some in there. I want you to feel the character's spark for each other, feel the heat they feel, find yourself wishing it was you in their place.
In the first rough draft, I had none, and at the end of the day the story was there, but the heat was missing. Now as I start rewriting Chapter 10, almost halfway through the novel, I need to light a fire.
So I must ask, as romance readers....how much sex is enough???
