Our Latest Romantic Short Story

Romantic Shorts’ Latest Romantic Short Stories…

Our romantic short stories are designed to take our readers away for about a half hour. They are complete stories unto themselves and aren’t related to each other. That means that you can duck into our Reading Room for a quick escape any time, and make it back to your real life before anyone knows you’ve gone.


Read our latest offering of half hour romances, here, free, any time.

It had been the last night before his departure. He’d lain there, his body entwined with hers, inhaling the scent that clung to the warmth of her skin, the scent of the lavender fields that she’d lain in just hours before he claimed every inch of her.

“I’m going to miss this,” he whispered, kissing the top of his wife’s head. She snuggled in closer, tracing the pad of her finger along the contours of his chest and stomach.

“I wish you didn’t have to leave.” Her breath tickled the hair on his chest. “Just promise me you’ll return to me?”



2016 finds Romantic Shorts once again looking for writers to submit romantic short stories for online publication. Writers whose stories are chosen will have their story featured on the site, promoted via Twitter and Facebook, and will enjoy a Romantic Shorts Author’s Page dedicated to the writer’s credits and achievements. If you’re a writer trying to get your name out there, consider submitting a romantic short story to Romantic Shorts.

Check out our Authors’ Pages here.

Our submission guidelines here – take a careful read through before submitting – or better yet, writing! – your story. Make sure your work is being reviewed for its quality and entertainment value – not its grammar mistakes and fancy fonts.

You might also want to take a look around our Romantic Shorts Headquarters for more information about our site and our sight for the house.
