Publisher's Summary

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey - the international best seller - an explosive novel of sex, secrecy, and escape.

"You’ve never been in control, until now; you’ve never, before, had exactly what you want…The lights turned off. A touch that’s gentle, slow, provocative, that builds you up, that makes you want it too much…"

Imagine on honeymoon, lulled by sultry heat and the promise of a lifetime’s happiness, you discover a shocking secret about your husband. But instead of destroying you, the knowledge brings freedom; the freedom to bare your soul, explore your deepest desires, and discover what you really want.

The Bride Stripped Bare is the story of a passionate sexual awakening, as erotic as it is dangerous....

©2003 Nikki Gemmell (P)2013 HarperCollins Publishers Limited

Critic Reviews

“Starkly explicit…richly descriptive with a fast-paced narrative” (Sunday Telegraph)
“Nikki Gemmel's prose has a wonderful sensuousness…witty…a subtle portrait of a modern and rather alienating marriage” (Lisa Appignanesi, Independent Magazine)
“The sex is well-written…Gemmell is refreshingly straightforward about the act” (Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard)

depressing

What disappointed you about The Bride Stripped Bare?

Structure of book drove me mad, depressing with self driven characters. May be a lesson learnt about settling for someone in marriage but situations and events could have been more realistic. Really, bull fighting and flying off to spain at a whim? This book had the protential to be good account of relationships got wrong.

What didn’t you like about Alice Frayn’s performance?

Better than expected

I tad navel gazing but well written and nicely delivered in a dead pan that matches the narrative. Well worth a listen.
