Sacrifice by Harold Carlton

Move over 'Fifty Shades of Grey', here comes the uncut version of Harold Carlton's SACRIFICE.

In a loveless marriage, Marcella Winton puts her secret sensual life to one side in order to bring up her children - and write some very erotic stories.

When her husband is imprisoned for insider dealing, Marcella sells her first book. Propelled into a world of bestselling writers, she moves to luxurious Fifth Avenue, in New York. But left alone after her wild, beautiful daughter Sonia runs away from home and her handsome son Mark throws himself into the world of music, Marcella finds herself irresistibly drawn to dangerous sex. At a notorious private club, MEMBERS, Marcella explores desire with attractive, nameless men.

On holiday in Spain, she meets Santi, an elegant art dealer and the man of her dreams. But can she turn her back on anonymous sex? And what of her daughter’s addiction to a famous soul singer so unaware of his strength that he has accidentally killed a girl during love-making and must wear handcuffs when alone with a woman?
When Marcella introduces her son to Santi, he forces her to choose between beloved son and new lover, igniting a chain of tragic and erotic events.
Marcella battles to rescue her children and herself from the weaknesses and addictions that rule their lives, climax in a series of desperate events - and one glorious miracle.
Full of plot turns as twisted as the sex itself, this is an unforgettable tale that will have you gripped from first to last page.
