Synopses & Reviews
Jane Eyre has lived a sheltered, callous life. Orphaned at a young age and despised by her remaining family, she is shipped off to Lowood School and can only dream of tenderness and affection. Upon accepting a governess position at Thornfield Hall, a world of passion, desire, and sex explodes before her naive eyes in the form of the brooding, dashing master of the house: Mr. Rochester. Jane finds herself succumbing to his savage, brutal lust and losing herself in the intense heat of her yearning. Jane believes that beneath Mr. Rochester's dark, handsome, and sometimes brutal exterior there must be a heart, and she is desperate to find love in his hungry caresses. But then, she discovers something in the attic . . . and her world is turned upside down forever.
In this cleverly retold classic, sex collides with corsets in a burst of erotic, mash-up fiction, bringing the searing heat of Fifty Shades of Grey to the dark secrets of one of literature's finest novels, Jane Eyre.
"Rose should please many fans of the classic romance with an update that remains reasonably true to BrontÃ« while making explicit Jane's sexually charged relationship with Mr. Rochester. In its first eroticized change, this version transforms the opening scene of Jane's torment at her older cousin John Reed's hands into an encounter E.L. James could have written. Rose's Jane, introduced here as a 16-year-old rather than a child of 10, is preoccupied from the start by what proves to be a portrait of Mr. Rochester and goes on to enjoy further amorous adventures with a stable boy after being packed off to school. Her relationship with Mr. Rochester, while still infused with the original's romantic tone, also carries through on earlier hints as to her taste for BDSM. Rose's ability to maintain the original personality of her Victorian heroine, even during very un-Victorian sex, is commendable." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
An erotic retelling of a timeless literary classic.
