Overview

A new novel from 'the reigning queen of-erotica, romance, love, and lust.' (Literary Times)

New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small explores the deepest recesses of the imagination where one woman's sexual fantasies lie in wait?

Widowed with five children, stay at home mom Annie Miller has been just getting by-and growing restless because of it. Thinking Annie just needs a vacation, her sister enters her into a contest sponsored by The Channel, a network that caters to delivering women's fantasies. Annie wins the grand prize, a week at a luxurious spa-and gets a treat when she turns on the flat-screen TV. The one working channel lets Annie program-and experience-her own personal fantasy each night. Suddenly she's living out dreams she didn't even know she had. But now that she's experienced a complete sexual awakening, how will everyone in her former life handle this humble homemaker turned vivacious vixen?

    This is erotic

    I thought this story about a widowed woman raising 5 children was a classic. The book begins with a basic story of family, but then turns into quite an erotic story with moments of pleasure that even the reader can't help be apart of. The ending I was a little disappointed with-only because I felt this character could have done more-than to say she did it all for the kids....sex for your kids-probably not. Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

    a pleasurable erotic tale

    In Egret Pointe, fortyish Widow Annie Elizabeth Miller raises five children by herself with no social life since her husband died in London. When her mom calls whining that her dad ignores her for golf, Annie knows this is an omen. Soon the high school calls to inform her that her two oldest Nathaniel and Amy are on detention that is followed by the middle school informing her that her twins Lily and Rose are suspended. Finally her youngest stay at home Wills rejects the nap that Annie desperately needs.------------- Her corporate litigator sister Lizzie who knows Annie¿s ¿strength¿ façade hides a depressed miserable person, submits her name to a contest sponsored by Channel, a spa catering to female desires. Annie wins a week at the spa. She has the time of her life sexually and otherwise. Shockingly she is offered a position at the spa, which would eliminate her financial woes and her sexual abstinence, which she accepts. However, her family, especially her kids who depend on her, wonder how far will success and pleasure spoil Annie Elizabeth Miller.------------- The sequel to PRIVATE PLEASURES is a pleasurable erotic tale starring a fortyish mother of five who has no life of her own with the only person interested in her well being her sister. The transformation of Annie from only raising five kids to sex siren works she classically displays defense mechanisms defending herself psychologically with initially altruistic and suppression states to altruistic rationalizations. She defends her changed behavior from a stay at home mom to BDSM and multiple-partners. Fans will enjoy Bertrice Small¿s fine character study while pondering the wise wisdom of teenage philosopher Amy that eventually you reach an age that sex does not matter (not).------------- Harriet Klausner
