Booking through Decorum

Do you have “issues” with too much profanity or overly explicit “romantic” scenes in books? Or do you take them in stride? Have issues like these ever caused you to close a book? Or do you go looking for more exactly like them?

I usually do not read romances. When I am in the mood to read one
which is rare nowadays, I look out for soft ones. Sometimes one cannot tell from the cover, what kind of book it would turn out to be. If steamy scenes are part of the story, I suppose I dwell right into it. I have not stopped reading any book because of it. Some romance writers can write those scenes very well without it getting raunchy.The romance element is important for me. As for as looking more of it, that was in my younger days. Now it is few and far between. Mills and Boon and Harlequin romances have undergone lots of changes over the years. These have got steamy scenes but even now those are not hard-core!

Hard-core porn puts me off.
