From the Freya's Bower guidelines:

We publish erotica and romance. New writers as well as cross-genre experimental styles and short story collections are welcome.

What we want:
1.Plot driven romances and/or erotica with happy, or at the very least hopeful, endings and varying degrees of sex, depending on the classification of the story. (Sweet, Tangy, Spicy, Sizzling, or Beyond Sizzling)
2.Heroes and heroines we can relate to. We want to see an arc of development in the characters throughout the story. Shorter stories must be tightly crafted for this reason.
3.Sex scenes must be relevant to the plot and organic to the story. If a scene can work without sex, then the sex isn't necessary and best left out.
4.Light bondage. This is acceptable as long as all parties are willing.
5.Titillating, passionate, well-written gay, lesbian and heterosexual stories.
6.We prefer third person stories.
