Description

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey - the international bestseller - an explosive novel of sex, secrecy and escape.


A woman finds her voice and leaves behind a book of lessons. It is the story of her secret self.


On honeymoon, in the heat and shadows of sultry Marrakech, a conventional young wife makes a shocking discovery. Although confused by her husband's betrayal, she finds it gives her the freedom to explore her deepest desires and rediscover the true self she has kept hidden from view so long.


But her new life is clouded by complication and the raw desire that threatens to overwhelm her. She finds herself torn between need for her husband and her yearning for something more. The Bride Stripped Bare is the story of a woman whose powerful awakening is erotic as it is dangerous.
