Diana's Covers

Erotica with soul

Diana Laurence writes erotic romance with a very specific goal in mind: to show how sex can possess a purity, a cleanness, a truly spiritual beauty. She holds that through such fiction, the reader can beneficially explore the deeper archetypal and spiritual elements of sex. The power of sex in literature is derived from the personalities it engages; it is the union of souls, the commingling of distinct personalities, which provides us a better understanding of the purpose and value and beauty of sex. Through Diana’s stories, she tries to find new ways to tap into the innocent, pure, spiritual source of joy that sex can be.
