When she meets the charismatic and mysterious young refugee Thomas, (Kai Malina, The White Ribbon) Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of hatred and desire as she must put her trust in the very person she was always taught to hate in order to survive.

Acclaim for Illegal Liaisons:

“A passionate novel of unstoppable physical obsession amongst a group of Brussels eurocrats, Illegal Liaisons offers a fascinating insight into the first Polish generation that is truly ‘free’, but struggle to know where the boundaries of that freedom lie.”–Stork Press

“Aspiring writer Jonathan puts his career on hold to follow his wife to Brussels, but finds himself drawn into an affair with the beautiful yet elusive Andrea. What follows is a tormenting battle between conscience and desire. Complex and compelling, Illegal Liaisons is a penetrating work of erotic imagination and a chilling portrait of the nature of love.”–New Europe Books
