Author Vina Jackson on S.E.C.R.E.T...

A prematurely-widowed young woman still filled with grief comes across a notebook abandoned by a mysterious woman at the New Orleans cafe where she waits tables. The revelation of a whole shadow world of sex and excess revealed inside its pages turns Cassie's life upside down as she is provoked into entering the wild fantasy offered by an underground society dedicated exlusively to pleasure. Smart racy romance with a strong sense of empowerment and great entertainment value. Stands out amongst the palette of Fifty Shades imitators.


S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline

A young widow, Cassie's life is filled with sadness and regret. She waits tables at the rundown Cafe Rose in New Orleans, heading home each night to her solitary one-bedroom apartment. But when she discovers a notebook left behind by a mysterious woman at the cafe, Cassie's world is changed forever. The notebook's stunningly explicit confessions shock and fascinate Cassie, and eventually lead her to Secret, an underground society dedicated to helping women realize their wildest, most intimate sexual fantasies. Cassie soon immerses herself in an electrifying journey through a series of rapturous fantasies with gorgeous men who awaken and satisfy her like never before. As she is set free from her inhibitions, she discovers a new confidence that transforms her, giving her the courage to live passionately at last. Enticing, liberating and emotionally powerful, Secret is a world where fantasy becomes reality.
