Summary

A “rollicking and bawdy” tale of eighteenth-century England, inspired by Fanny Hill, from the New York Times–bestselling author of Fear of Flying (The Plain Dealer).    Galloping from England to Africa to the high seas of the Caribbean, bestselling author Erica Jong’s “perverse epic” follows the amorous adventures of a woman of pleasure and pluck (The New York Times). Falling in with randy highwaymen, witches, kidnappers, pirate queens, prostitutes, and such luminaries as Jonathan Swift, William Hogarth, and Alexander Pope, Fanny is seeking much more than fortune. In this unexpurgated “memoir” by the girl made famous in John Cleland’s notorious Fanny Hill, our dauntless heroine finally reveals what really made her.   Life begins somewhat ignobly for Fanny Hackabout-Jones. Abandoned as an infant on the doorstep of Lord and Lady Bellars’s grand Wiltshire manor, she contemplates the literary life as she grows to ripe young womanhood. Fanny chooses, however, to pursue a very different future when she flees to London to escape the mortifying advances of her adoptive father. There, on the road, her life truly begins. Cast by pernicious Fate—and her own audacious will—into a series of astonishing escapades, Fanny learns that a woman’s lot is not an easy one in these oppressive times. But she will not be discouraged, nor will she falter, on the uneven path toward notoriety, self-discovery, motherhood, and love. This is a delightful twist on classic literature—and “Erica Jong was the right person to write it” (Anthony Burgess, Saturday Review).  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erica Jong including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

    Dear Listener, 
     
    I began writing the Night Trilogy in 1987. I'm very proud of all three novels. Perhaps Night Fire is my favorite simply because it's so different from the other two. 
     
    In Night Fire, Arielle Leslie is a sixteen-year-old forced to wed Paisley Cochrane, a sadistic old man who abuses her. When he dies, she believes herself free. But she's not. 
     
    Burke Drummond, Earl of Ravensworth, a young man she'd worshipped three years before, is home from the wars, and he wants her. 
     
    Burke and Arielle are two people who have touched me deeply. Together they faced problems and obstacles never spoken of in the Regency time. 
     
    Do give Night Fire a try. See if you don't agree with me that Arielle and Burke are two very special people.

In the aftermath of this traumatic loss, the young man reveals his knowledge of his parents’ rather kinky sex life, prompting his intoxicated stepmother to administer the sound bare bottom spanking that she had longed to give him for many years. After sobering up a bit, she is remorseful and demands he give her the same treatment to her own gorgeous rear end.
     
    Jake debriefs this confusing episode with his aikido master, also a lovely older woman who warmly accepts his embarrassing arousal at painful attention to his derriere.  She then reveals her own enjoyment of administering hard spankings to deserving male rear ends, leading to a torrid sexual encounter that is supremely satisfying to them both.  His unusual worshipful approach to pleasing powerful women causes his teacher to recruit him as a sex toy for a group of her friends, three lovely professional women with varying needs for very kinky BDSM sex.  All manner of entertaining naughtiness ensues.

    This is the story of a young woman who as she matures, begins to explore the wonderful sensations her body is capable of creating, however, soon feeling guilty, she tells her mother.  Being religious to a fault, her parents soon have Catherine fitted with, and imprisoned in a truly limiting Anti-Temptation System.  Next, she is sent off to the local parochial school for young ladies where she discovers that she is not alone in being imprisoned within the restricting undergarments. Catherine remains a prisoner of her 'System' but is eventually freed and allowed to date.  Her long-frustrated desires boil to the surface and she soon falls victim to the suddenly available world of sensual pleasure, but it's a trap.  Far too soon Catherine is forced into becoming a Nun in the Sisterhood Of Eternal Penitence and once she is delivered to the Convent, she is rapidly absorbed into a life long commitment to Poverty, Obedience, Chastity, Discipline and Silence while always being kept subject to constant electronic control. This is not the end for Catherine though, for The Church has very definite plans for the young women it holds in captivity.  Eventually, she finds herself removed from human status and reduced to the level of an owned dairy animal …. a role she will never be permitted to escape from and one that she will endure for the remainder of her life.
