What is knotting or bonding in monster romance?

Let's begin by defining a knot. A knot is a fleshy bulb attached to the base of a penis, separate from the testicles. The knot is inserted during intercourse and is used as a lock to increase fertility in sexually compatible partners by preventing semen from leaking out. Sexual compatiblity aside, it can be an extremely pleasurble experience for both parties involved and creates the sensation of fullness. This act is referred to as knotting or bonding.

Within the omegaverse (an alternate universe where the emphasis is placed on interactions between the genders: alphas, betas, and omegas), knotting usually occurs during an omega's heat or an alpha's rut, or between bonded pairs.

Outside the omegaverse, knotting occurs at the conclusion phase of sex, where partners are then locked together for a period of time. This time varies between writers and so do the rules in the way they are used.

The knotting dynamic in romance books provide a fun surprise for readers during spicy scenes, and once primarily only seen in the omegaverse have increased in popularity in both monster romance and paranormal romance throughout the years.

Some typical creatures with knots in monster romance books include werewolves, nagas, and aliens!

Here are the 10 best romance books with knotting:

I am in NEED.

Only, she is surrounded by men. So, I will sneak up on her. I will stalk her, learn everything about her, and wait for the right moment. And when the time comes, I’ll set my trap. She will be caught. Then she will be claimed.

By no one else but ME."
