When reading through some book descriptions on the internet, I came across an author who described her writing as Twisted Romance.
Years ago, twisted was often used to describe someone who had weird ideas or actions. Kooky or even kinky might have been synonyms.
I was curious to know if the term twisted, nowadays, meant something different.
Here’s what I found.
The current term twisted romance tells the full spectrum of love stories. Dark, depraved and addictive. Frantic and often painful. They are gritty and seek to take you out of your comfort zone.
Sometimes referred to as adult fantasy, these books may be more than you bargain for and introduce both the reader–and the writer–to the world of pornography. In my opinion, these books are a dangerous inroad to evil and a dark world that I (for one) want no part of.
Much better to stick with cozy mysteries, mainstream romance, and Christian Fiction (of course).
