9780060591885: The Bride Stripped Bare

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

‘You’ve never been in control, until now; you’ve never, before, had exactly what you want…The lights turned off. A touch that’s gentle, slow, provocative, that builds you up, that makes you want it too much…’

Imagine on honeymoon, lulled by sultry heat and the promise of a lifetime’s happiness, you discover a shocking secret about your husband. But instead of destroying you, the knowledge brings freedom; the freedom to bare your soul, explore your deepest desires and discover what you really want.

THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE is the story of a passionate sexual awakening, as erotic as it is dangerous.

The seduction goes further when a married woman recalls her first love affair in Nikki Gemmell’s WITH MY BODY…

Review:

'Starkly explicit…richly descriptive with a fast-paced narrative' Sunday Telegraph

'Nikki Gemmel's prose has a wonderful sensuousness…witty…a subtle portrait of a modern and rather alienating marriage' Lisa Appignanesi, Independent Magazine

'Must read…A tale of sexual awakening for the dark horse in all of us' Tatler

‘The sex is well-written…Gemmell is refreshingly straightforward about the act' Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard

'Easy to read, hard to put down. Keep an extinguisher handy' Closer

'A page-turner' Evening Standard

'A bored housewife embarks on a life of sexual pleasure…The sex is rude and raunchy and "exactly where you want it"' Elle

'Personal dilemmas are bravely explored; thoughts and fantasies about sex and infidelity, which most women have learned to keep to themselves, are laid bare on the page in all their shocking glory…brutal, brilliant and addictive' Glasgow Herald

From the Publisher:

A woman disappears. Her car lies abandoned on a remote bluff; no body is found. She was the good wife, the good mother: mannerly, quiet, self-contained. But she has left behind an incendiary diary chronicling a disturbing journey of sexual awakening.

As the diary opens on her honeymoon in Morocco, she believes herself to be happy or happy enough, anyway. Swiftly, this security masquerading as love fractures in an act of massive betrayal, only to propel her into a world of desire and fantasy and recklessness. What begins for her in the imagination ends in a tangle of sheets, in a drowning spiral of obsession and release. She finds an unlikely heroine to inspire her in a dusty, rare manuscript written by an anonymous woman in the 1600s, a cry from the heart for women to live and love freely. With this as guide, she dares to rupture convention, learning, for the first time, the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is, how long can her soul sustain a perilous double life?

Coolly impassioned, THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE tells shocking truths about love and sex. These are the kind of revelations that best friends whisper to each other and then decide to forget they ever revealed. Couched in a deceptively simple style, it will make you question whether it is ever entirely possible to know another person.
