Bliss Sinclair's life of dull routine and unhappiness makes her imagination the only place she can find fulfillment. Until she meetsRegina, a provocative writer who pulls her out of her head and into a sensuously real world alive with flavors and sensations beyond any she'd ever imagined. This real world is exciting and rich with irresistible pleasures, but Sinclair quickly learns these pleasures are not what they seem.

She discovers that lust can simply be another illusion, and passion without love can poison just as easily as it redeems. To cleanse herself of Regina's poison, she escapes to Jamaica, the place where she was born, in hopes that the sun and ocean breezes will heal both old and new wounds. But among the brilliant flowers and crystal waters of the island, Sinclair finds ghosts from her past as well as strangers who challenge her very understanding of life and love.

From hidden grottos bubbling with desire to dangerous streets where violence is just a breath away, Sinclair must fight for the love she deserves, fight for herself, and for the life of satisfaction that was meant to be hers all along.

**This is a novel of erotic lesbian romance containing adult sexual situations not suitable for minors or the faint of heart.**

Fiona Zedde delivers the sexually erotic story of Bliss Sinclair, also known as Sinclair. Sinclair has what a lot of women dream of having - a wonderful and beautiful boyfriend, a stable career, and options of being whatever she wants to be in life. Sinclair soon finds out this dream is not hers. She falls for a beautiful writer, Regina, and leaves her boyfriend to venture into what she feels is something that has to be done. After a whirlwind romance, Sinclair is left feeling lonely, abandoned, and insecure.

Sinclair begins her healing process with a four week trip to her roots of Jamaica. After rekindling her relationship with a father that she hasn't seen in over twenty years and his new family - her much younger stepmother Nikki and her stepbrother Xavier, Sinclair also learns that she has a sister, Lydia, from an affair that her father had while he was with Sinclair's mother. Feeling as though she has embarked on yet another wave of turmoil, Sinclair meets Lydia's girlfriend Hunter. There is an attraction that each woman feels is mutual but because of the circumstances, they try to settle on just being friends. After what seems like a lifetime span only equals to days of Lydia and Hunter separating and opening the door for Sinclair and Hunter to see what their attraction will eventually lead to.

Fiona opens your mind and heart to the lesbian lifestyle showing not only the love that two women share with each other but also how modern day time still has a closed mind to anything other than heterosexual commitment. Fiona did an excellent literary job of capturing the love of both women; but for me skimming through the more erotic scenes kept me interested in reading from beginning to end.

This was a very sexy romantic novel about a woman who discovers she loves women. Not at all what I expected but good nonetheless so long as you don't mind reading about woman-to-woman love affairs.

Romance, realism and hot sexy moments that catapult you through this story of a woman's search for love departing from heterocentricity to one of taboo!!! A MUST READ!!!

I enjoyed this book from a clinical standpoint in that a gave me a glimpse into the mind of a lesbian. Fiona Zedde takes us on a journey of realization, discovery, acceptance, and finally ...bliss. I must admit, that I was engrossed, as the main character removed herself from a tedious relationship with a man to be turned out completely by an Uber lesbian. Only to find her heart shattered and then realize that many of the problems that she was faced with in a relationship with a man apply to having one with a woman as well. The tale then slowed down for me a bit, as the main character then ran home to Daddy (which I found a bit ironic) to lick her wounds and patch her soul. Although, the imagery that Zedde paints of Jamaica and it's people is vivid and enlightening, the book dragged a bit as Bliss finally finds true love. As far as erotica goes though, Zedde is no joke. You won't be disappointed with her sex scenes even if you don't swing that way. Girl on girl. Girl's spanking girls. An orgy with girls from every race. Ohhh my! I do believe that I need to take a trip to the bathroom and finish reflecting on my most favorite parts of the book.... Euftis Emery Author of Off the Chain

Bliss Finoa Zedde ISBN: 0-75620919-3 $ 14.00 Bliss Sinclair seems to have it all. A high profile job at a publishing house, a good looking boyfriend and hot parties to attend. On the outside Bliss appears to have it all. On the inside she feels empty and wanting more. When it all comes crashing down around her Bliss returns to her birth place of Jamaica hoping to reconcile with her father and be with the family she left behind. The Lush tropical back ground of Jamaica adds heat to this journey of self discovery for Bliss and brings her pleasures, satisfaction and bliss like she has never known. Zedde is known for her erotic stories and this novel shows her ability to wrap the heat around you with a tasteful erotic tale that awakens your senses. A nice addition to Lesbian fiction.
