As she says farewell to her old pseudonym and hello to Anya Howard, author Desiree Erotique offers readers some of the best and newest of her writings in the collection, Adieu, Bonjour.
“There was a time when Romance was a quest set in beautiful and unbridled lands, where the characters’ greatest succor came in the sublime awareness of the moment’s sensations and the will to succeed without heed to danger, conflict, conformity or the taboo. Today a Romance is a narrowly structured tale set against a background of danger and conflict that, conformingly, steers clear of all traces of the taboo.
And of these two, I believe the former more closely describes the adventure called love.”
