A wicked fairy who curses a child to a hundred years of slumber because she wasn't invited to a party! Seems harsh, right?
But the real story is so much more interesting and way sexier.
In this re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, the wicked fairy Maurelle isn't mad at not receiving an invitation -- no she's got deeper reason for being upset at King Edmund and Queen Blissa. And little princess Briar Rose, before she's cursed, is given the gift of dream sight, which allows her to interact with others in her dreams. All is not changed, though. Prince Charming is still, well, charming. He's just a tad bit sexier and knows exactly how to please.
Find yourself a comfy spot and make yourself at home as you start this imaginative, adult version of the classic fairy tale.
It's hard losing your job - and even harder looking for something new. But just how far will one man go to impress the boss? From steamy ecounters in the office to lust in the potting shed, this is one job search that proves especially stimulating...
From internationally bestselling author Nikki Gemmell comes a tantalizing story of love within marriage—and alongside it.
Under her Chanel suit and designer lingerie, Connie Carven is no longer the typical banker's wife. When Cliff's horrible skiing accident shifts the balance of their relationship, Connie becomes a willing submissive to her husband's every desire. Cliff is eager to explore new, and troubling, avenues of passion. Connie, ever the dutiful wife, follows wherever he leads. While at first she enjoys a perverse sense of freedom within the ever-tightening bonds of her marriage, Cliff's dark desires soon consume her entirely. She finds herself surrendering to an act that will forever remind her that she belongs to her husband alone—to be unlocked only by him, whenever he pleases.
But it is also this act that awakens Connie from the numbness that has taken over her life. And when she encounters someone new in the communal garden of her Notting Hill home, she discovers the thrill of true intimacy . . . and the price of risking everything for it.
The author of the bestselling phenomenon The Bride Stripped Bare and the exquisite With My Body, Nikki Gemmell brings erotic writing into the twenty-first century. In I Take You she looks to the classic Lady Chatterley's Lover for inspiration, reimagining D. H. Lawrence's celebrated tale as a brutally honest and deeply sensual modern love story.
This debut novel of a Frenchwoman’s obsessive affair is “a little book that astonishes, by the fierceness of its outlook, the rawness of its tone” (Magazine Littéraire). Amélie is a thirty-year-old haute bourgeoisie wife of a distant husband and mother of two picture-perfect daughters. One evening at a service station on the outskirts of the Bois de Boulogne, she meets a man named David and immediately steps into a new life of erotic sensuality. Twenty years her senior, darkly handsome, and almost embarrassingly virile, he is a suave filmmaker, a confirmed bachelor, and the perfect match for the perfect affair—but one with a twist. Amélie is not the typical lonely wife, starving for affection. Capricious, snobbish, and sometimes deceitful, she is ravenously hungry for pleasure. Written with cool-headed intensity and sexual heat, Crush is an unforgettable odyssey through the wilds of desire into the badlands of erotic obsession.
"The haunting song of a distant era calls the beautiful graduate student to her subject, the enigmatic Captain Blackwell.
Across the centuries, she is drawn by an inexplicable passion into a realm of mystery and danger--to be imprisioned in an opulent world of harem intrigue and sensuous slavery.
And now Blackwell is with her--patriot, privateer, heroic commander of the U.S. merchantman the Pearl--the dream, the desire made achingly real. Imperiled captives of fate, they are united by a power far greater than time--and by a passion that could destroy them both . . . or forever change the course of history.
The irresistible call of adventure brings lovely Christina Wakefield to the alluring Arabian desert. But fate imprisons her after she encounters Sheik Abu, the strikingly handsome though arrogant adventurer, whom she had known in England as Philip Caxton.
Once Christina had rejected Philip's fervent offer of marriage. But now she is to be his slave -- desperate for the freedoms denied her...yet weakened by her heart's blazing desire to willingly explore her virile captor's most sensuous cravings.
