Product Description

Product Description

In a foreign land, a woman discovers exotic new realms of the senses...

When software engineer Kate O’Neill leaves her lover David to take a job in Thailand, she becomes sexually involved with two very different men: a handsome and debauched member of the Thai aristocracy, and the charismatic proprietor of a sex bar.

Each touches her in a different way; each teaches her different things about her body and her heart.

Then David comes to Bangkok, and Kate realises that, finally, she must choose one of the three men who all desire her.

5.0 out of 5 stars this one is charged from start to finish 27 Dec 2000
By A Customer
great book - great sex - when can we have a sequel.
Starts off in cracking form, goodbye to her boyfriend in the car park against the pillar. Mystery mem pop in and out until it is culminated in a four way thrash between Kate and her three men to decide who will win her.
Thanks and more of the same

5.0 out of 5 stars A NOVEL THAT'S SURE TO GET THE BLOOD STIRRING!!! 30 Oct 2002
By Wayne C. Rogers - Published on
Though I've been a writer of erotica for well over twenty years, I actually read very little of the stuff, preferring the pleasure of novels in the horror/ mystery/suspense genres. Occasionally, however, a beautifully written piece of erotica does come along that grabs my attention and makes me realize how far I still have to go in becoming a good writer. RAW SILK by Lisabet Sarai is just such a novel. This is the story of lovely software engineer, Katherine O'Neil, who leaves her home and lover in Boston to take a job with DigiThai Ltd in Bangkok, Thailand. During Kate's first week of work there, she unexpectedly becomes sexually involved with one of the owners of the company, Somtow Rajchitraprasong, and with one of the company's clients, Gregory Marshall. Somtow is a married Thai prince who seems to be overly addicted to the delicious pleasures of the flesh and is more than willing to help Kate explore her own sexuality. Marshall, on the other hand, is the owner of a local sex club called the Grotto and has a raw animal magnetism that makes him alluring. Lucky Kate is instantly drawn to both men with a force that's almost overwhelming in the nature of its power. When Marshall introduces her to the world of S&M with the intention of making her a sexual slave, she finds herself giving in to hidden emotions that threaten to engulf her with their smoldering intensity. In time she will have to make a choice between the two gentlemen, not to mention her old lover, David, who suddenly arrives in Bangkok to win her back. As if Kate didn't have enough to worry about, there's also a conspiracy brewing within the upper echelons of DigiThai-a conspiracy that may bring the company down to its knees with her as the scapegoat. There's no doubt in my mind that RAW SILK is one of the hottest novels I've read in the past several years. Though it was written by a woman for a predominantly female audience, I found myself aroused in ways that surprised even me. There's definitely something for everyone in this novel: straight sex, bi-sex, male domination, female domination, threesomes, and the list goes on and on. But more than that, this book is exquisitely written. Ms. Sarai is a poet who knows the magic of words and how to make them come alive for the reader. She's able to capture the sheer beauty of Bangkok as well as its crowded streets, strange scents, constant noise, and the open friendliness and hospitality of its people toward outsiders. I felt at home there and experienced strong memories returning of when I lived in Bangkok during the late sixties. I also found all of the main characters in the book to be fully developed and rather intriguing, and even the information about computer software programming managed to capture my attention. I have to admit that it was a no-brainer as to whom Kate would pick to live her life with at the end. I can say that RAW SILK, like authentic Thai food, is a hot and spicy dish best suited for those readers in need of a little excitement in their otherwise dull and restless lives. It certainly spiced up my life, and I now intend to keep an eye out for more novels by Lisabet Sarai!

4.0 out of 5 stars An stimulating read.... 31 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
While the plot storyline are fine, Somtow and David were slighted in depth of their characters. Generally, I am a HUGE Portia Da Costa fan, but Ms. Sarai has the trappings of a fine writer! I would definitely read more of her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brand new fan 13 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I've read at least 20 books from the black lace series and this was by far my favorite. It has a bit of everything from romantic courtship to submission. The book was a lesson in culture as well as eroticism! Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Journey into dark sensuality 17 July 2003
By girldiver - Published on
Kate is in search of something/anything exciting and takes a job in Thailand. She immediately falls into a imbroglio of sexual/sensual pleasure with two very different lovers. The journey is definitely of sexual self discovery and exploration and exceptionally written.
I turned every page of this book and found compelled to read another page and then another until I was finished. Every page was exciting to put the book down was verboten.
There is an air to this novel that stays with you after reading the last page of the book and your compelled to think of your own reality and the choices Kate made her reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious and Steamy Erotic Novel 6 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Raw Silk is a well-crafted excursion into sensual exploration. The characters are vivid and the narrative moves steadily from adventure to adventure as Kate explores her desires and the mysteries of Thailand.
There isn�t a dull paragraph anywhere. Raw Silk kept me turning pages in search of the next layer of steamy prose. Ms. Sarai keeps you on the edge of your chair and panting. This is a rewarding read.
