Submission dates: Monday, March 2nd  – Monday, March 16th at 11:59 p.m. EST (2 weeks) 

Call to action: Do your smokin’ hot heroes and strong, sympathetic heroines burn up the page on their way to their happily ever after? We’re on the lookout for new authors—and you could be the next Blaze Babe! We publish 55,000-word super-sexy contemporary romance novels. Along with great sex scenes, we ask our authors to deliver complex plots and subplots, realistic, engaging characters and an unforgettable love story. Blaze novels are fun, flirty and always steamy!
