LaQuette writes sexy, stylish, and sensational romance. That means she writes sentimental and steamy stories (like Hallmark movies, but with a lot of sex) featuring at least one MC who always keeps it cute.

This Brooklyn native writes unapologetically bold, character-driven stories. Her novels feature diverse ensemble casts who are confident in their right to appear on the page.

If she's not writing, she's probably trying on or looking for her next great makeup find. She is the 2016 Author of the Year Golden Apple Award winner & the 2016 Write Touch Readers Award winner. Writing—her escape from everyday madness— has always been a friend and source of comfort.

At the age of sixteen, she read her first romance novel and realized the genre was m

Hi Adrienne!

My answer to the first question is that money talks. Romance sells. Whether people want to admit they actually read it is another matter, but romance novels are a billion dollar a year business. You can't throw shade at that kind of relevance.

As for the second part, I don't write erotica. I write erotic romance where sex is explicit, but the center of the story focuses on the romance/relationship between the protagonists. I only clarify because readers looking for books in the erotica genre are looking for books whose focus in on the sex and sexual development of the character. I work hard at what I do, so I have no shame in the product that I produce. If I'm ashamed of what I write I shouldn't be writing it.

My fans are very supportive, and I don't really listen to naysayers. I've always danced to my own drum, decided what was normal for me. My tagline is: Embracing my crazy...one character at a time. If I like it, it works for me. So, people that fail to appreciate my genre, they don't have much of an impact on my opinion of my genre, my work, nor my readership.(less)

I wanted to skip forward a couple of years and see how that love had evolved and if it could withstand new challenges, darker challenges.(less)
