Historical Cowboys

We adore historical western romance here at Totally Bound. There’s something so romantic about seeing the hero and heroine ride off into the sunset together. Take us back to the days of stagecoaches and sagebrush, to long, dusty cattle drives and the measured tread of well-worn boots on floorboards. Where love can be found in a remote cabin on the wild prairie or the barely tamed streets of a western town. Send us your historical stories, let your cowboys take us away! Series and serials are also welcome. We’re looking for 10-100,000 word count, please.

Hot, hot, hot! What can raise the temperature more than a scorching BDSM story? Take us to the edge. Take us to that place where the deepest, most hidden desires are fulfilled, where secrets are revealed and shared. We want you to let your imagination run wild, we want you show us how special that Dom/sub dynamic can be. Burning Heat rating. We're looking for stories with a Heat rating: burning/melting.

Going Home

Who says you can’t go home again? When the trials and tribulations of everyday life get to be too much, we sometimes long for simpler things and happier times. We want you to take us there, to a small town with white picket fences—a place where children chase fireflies on warm summer evenings, a place where everyone knows your name. Or perhaps a picturesque village, all quaint cottages, roses and a pub at the heart of the community. So, go on, indulge us, take us to that special place where we belong. We’re looking for a small town romance to warm our hearts. We’re looking for M/F, 10-100,000 word count, please.
