What Is Sweet Savage Flame?

Sweet Savage Flame is all about loving vintage old-school romance novels.

You know, those trashy, campy sex romps your mother, grandmother, or older uncle read? Perhaps you might have read one or two yourself!

From vintage books to bodice rippers and from epic historicals to short-length category romances, we unashamedly love them all!

The plots were sometimes shocking, even not politically correct. These are books that had their day, and we look back at the past with fondness, not scorn.

Besides, we can’t get enough of romance covers! Many talented artists illustrated gorgeous clinch images.
