BLISS RIVER

"The idea of BLISS was precipitated by something I read about a British expatriate colony in South Africa (talk about steamy). This was a hotbed of licentious living, a boiling swamp of hedonism, anything went and in any combination. It was tailor made for me to take it and run, and I thought, wouldn't it be interesting if the heroine had grown up in this atmosphere, and was expected, when she reached the age of consent, to enthusiastically participate? And what if she were desperate to escape her fate and pins her hopes on a stranger bent on vengeance—one with whom she makes a scorching bargain on the heels of an unexpected murder?"
