Indulgence Submission Guidelines
At the heart of every Indulgence is the ultimate fantasy hero that women dream about. The kind of man who knows how to wield the power and wealth he possesses. Our stories are active, fast-paced, and dialogue-heavy, using timeless, classic romance tropes to drive the story.
Powerful heroes. Passionate romance. That’s Indulgence.
Specifically, we want:
- Proven category tropes such as matchmakers, ugly duckling, friends to lovers, revenge, blackmail, enemies to lovers, mistaken identity. We use three tropes per story.
- Stories featuring alpha heroes and the confident women who love them.
- Stories must focus on the hero and heroine alone; no secondary characters as main characters with their own POV.
- Strong conflict. Cannot be stressed enough. What is keeping these two apart and how do they overcome the obstacles? Please have clear and convincing GMC for hero and heroine.
- The sensuality level can be mild to scintillating.
- POV should be split 50/50 between the hero and heroine. 3rd person POV is preferred.
- Unsure whether you’ve written an Indulgence, a Lovestruck, or a Brazen? Indulgence heroes are fantasy men who know how to wield the power and wealth they possess. Lovestruck focuses on modern men and women finding love in unexpected places. Brazen stories are driven by the hero and heroine’s physical relationship.
- Manuscripts must be 45-60K words in length.
- Authors who are willing to edit and work with us in a collaborative process to make the manuscript the best it can be.
- We accept both agented and unagented submissions.
