(Virgin Black Lace, January 2009; ISBN-10: 0352342021)
Sad, sultry Helen flies between London, Paris and the Caribbean chasing whatever physical pleasures she can get to tear her mind from a deep, deep loss. Her glamorous life-style and charged sensual escapades belie a widow’s grief. When she meets handsome, rich Jeffrey she is shocked and yet intrigued by his masterful, domineering behaviour. Soon, Helen is forced to confront the forbidden desires hiding within herself — and forced to undergo a startling metamorphosis from a meek and modest lady into a bristling, voracious wanton.
“[The Gift of Shame] is a fantastically decadent book, released originally in 1994 and I must say it has certainly aged well. … The sexual encounters in this book are hot, there are no sex scenes in this book which could be called dull, not by a long chalk! Unlike some erotic novels, each encounter seems to really have a place in the story to move it on. ” —Victoria Blisse, Erotica Readers & Writers Association
