Heat Ratings:

Luminosity Publishing is currently interested in the following heat ratings:

 Sweet – Romance without consummated love scenes. Although, reference to lovemaking may occur off page. Must contain a happily ever after.
 Sizzling – Romance with mild sex scenes. Flowery use of sexual language (euphemisms) allowed, could offend some readers. Happily ever after a must.
 Scorching Hot – Explicit sex scenes from the get go. Descriptive words leaving little to the imagination. No euphemisms. Could offend readers. Happily ever after, or happy for now required.
 X-Rated Erotica – Explicit sex scenes from the get go. No euphemisms. Descriptions leave nothing to the imagination. Will offend most readers. Happily ever after not required, although book must end on a happy note.

What we are not interested in.

Absolutely NO to any of the following:

  • Paedophilia – NO WAY! Remember, all characters involved in a sexual relationship must be 18 or over, and 21 for multiple partner stories.
  • Rape as titillation – This overused trope should only be used for driving a plotline. Definitely not for titillation!
  • Bodily functions – Just NO!
  • Necrophilia – Absolutely NO! Although we will make an exception for vampires and the undead.
  • Bestiality – NO! Werewolves, shapeshifters, and sci-fi beings the only exception.
