Frankly, this book would be well worth buying for the cover picture alone. Stunning and ethereally beautiful. I didn't think the book could live up to it, but it manages delightfully.

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!

This is not 'The Story of O', and does not pretend to be. Whips, chains, and women somehow proving their value to their lovers by suffering abuse at the hands of others are not to be found here.

'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.
