From the Author
The Yearning is an intense and intimate story about the nature of love and the desire to connect deeply with another human being. It has strong erotic themes, but isn't really erotic fiction. It's very romantic, but isn't a romance. It follows a young girl's journey from sexual awakening in her teenage years to the wisdom she gains in adulthood through her experience of loving her charismatic teacher Solomon Andrews.
The character Solomon Andrews was the early prototype for the character Ramon in the first two of my erotic novellas in the Master of Love series - Breaking the Rules and Bloom.
From the Inside Flap
For my brave lovers, warriors of the heart
'Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.'
The Song of Solomon
King James Bible
