Guiltless Pleasure

In desperate need of a distraction from 2020, Eve and Julie turn to ROMANCE. Jane Igharo--a Nigerian-born immigrant to Canada and author of the newly released debut romance novel Ties That Tether--joins to discuss why romance readers are such avid fans, what qualities make romance novels so compulsively readable, and how to embrace the shameless delights of writing erotic scenes.

Ties That Tether

“If you like snarky, clever stories, Azere’s narration is *chef’s kiss*.”

The Washington Post
