From the Publisher
"Is this fiction?" asks the writer of one of this book's 5-star Amazon.com reviews. "The way the story is told, in that lovely 'bygone English'--it makes it all seem so very believable and real...170 pages of delicious eroticism: kinky and straight but always beautifully handled. Susanna is sweet, Susanna is insatiable. Sinful (and beautiful) writing Mr./Ms. Raiment."

Plot summary: Lady Susanna has to join her husband in the tropics, leaving the pleasures of London behind. She is dreading it, but on the way there, the boat is shipwrecked, and she manages to make it to an island (how she does it is brilliant, but you'll have to read the book to find out!) The natives of the island view her as a goddess, and she has to quickly adjust to their culture and their strange customs. All of these seem to be sexual in some way... how terrible *smile*. No problem for this very capable and resourceful female, who eagerly throws off the sexual shackles of restrained Victorian England.
Some very amusing and well-delivered twists, with beautifully written yet still erotic kinky frolics. A lot of thought and effort must have gone into it, and it packs in a lot for only 170-odd pages. It left me at the end wondering if it was really a true story, and I can't give it a greater compliment than that. I highly recommend it!
'Aphrodite Overboard' is a book you can safely read if you've never read erotic fiction before, because it is gentle, funny, loving and hugely respectful of women. It's a book to buy if you've ever been tempted to read erotica but have not dared. It is an acknowledged jewel of a book and one I am proud to have written.

Beyond the story itself, you also sense the author's strong feelings regarding the make up of today's society, the unwritten rules of our culture that often limit us as human beings. He offers up an idyllic alternative to tease your imagination.
In my opinion this novel is destined to become the "Fanny Hill" or "Lady Chatterley's Lover" of our time. A book not to be passed over.
"Erotic" appears in the subtitle and erotic this novel is! Sex in all its lovely forms. Heats the blood and gets it headed to all the right places ......... it did for me. 170 pages of delicious eroticism: kinky and straight but always beautifully handled. Susanna is sweet, Susanna is insatiable. Sinful (and beautiful) writing Mr./Ms. Raiment.
P.S. Are drawings available for that chair? Nobody's 'playroom' should be without one!
