Author Essay

Dear Reader,

If asked why I think my serial novel, THE AFFAIR, is special, one thing immediately pops to mind: romance. Even though THE AFFAIR is a steamy, sexy story, it’s the poignant, tender moments in Montand and Emma’s love story that really stand out for me. Combine that with the breathtaking scenery of a lakeside mansion and a French Riviera villa, and what emerges is a feast for the senses, an indulgent reader fantasy along with a breathtaking journey of a romance unfolding in real time. Certain scenes pop into my mind: Montand and Emma slow dancing on a moonlit terrace overlooking the sea, the private little cocoon they make for themselves on his private beach, a euphoric moment of fate and luck in a Cannes casino. I think many people would assume such a sexy story is devoid of true romance, but in THE AFFAIR, even in the most erotic exchanges, there is a feeling of tenderness and growing love between these two very special people. THE AFFAIR is the ideal example of why I vehemently deny writing erotica. I write erotic romance. For me, an intense, emotional love story is what always stands at the core.
