Publisher's Summary

Anais Sheppard is the wife of a politician in Beverly Hills, a wealthy woman who seems to have it all. However, her husband is having a string of affairs and hasn't so much as touched his wife for five years. Unable to bear her own yearnings, she engages in an affair of her own. But the man who seemed so exciting at first, soon has strange demands for Anais. Swept up in a strong attraction for her new lover and a growing addiction to sex, she agrees to sell her body both on the streets of L.A. and at parties for her lover's friends. In all the darkness, there is a ray of light: a man very different from any other Anais has known. Jean-Claude is a Tantra massage therapist, who wants to help Anais realize her true potential; the pleasure she is capable of and the fact that she is, in reality, a sexual goddess.

The best erotic novel I've ever listened to

Where does The Desires of Anais and Her Stirring Sexuality: Her Journey in the Sextremes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the best. Only the audiobook version of Gravity's Rainbow, with George Guidall's unforgettable narration, comes close to it.

What did you like best about this story?

The author's detailed portrayal of the characters' inner lives. The prose made the characters feel like real people.

What does Marie Hélène bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A slow, sultry voice that infused every authorial detail and character description with lust and sex.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It stirred up a welter of emotions in me. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me want to have sex.

Any additional comments?

Fantastic book. Sexual without being crass or cheesy, affecting without being sentimental. I just finished it but I already feel like listening to it again.

Yes , this book is actually written really well and at the same time not vulgar. It is truly a great piece. I would recommend this to my friend.

I would actually compare it to Fifty Shades even though the book isn't that hardcore but the writing is actually exquisite.

Which scene was your favorite?

The starting of the book when the female lead ordered a massage. The way the author portrayed the thoughts of the characters mind is just so impressive. Every single detail is taken care of.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

You could feel a little sympathy for the character as she felt neglected by her husband, for a moment I felt a little sad for her.

Any additional comments?

The writing of the book is incredible and wonderfully detailed. Also , the voice over was very well done. I particularly like how the writer manages to project the character thoughts into writing.

Thoughtfully captivating in both story and technique.

The author gently introduces a realm of intimate possibilities by portraying a woman's journey into, once thought impossible, sexual discovery. This book has a very unique and effective way of opening one's mind and teaching tantric techniques.

A great way to open doors to sexual freedom for women, and providing confidence and sexual security for men.

One Fearless Female's Erotic Journey

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend it to someone who would enjoy a deeper understanding of human sexuality and what makes women tick the most. Anyone who has passed the stage of looking at the usual pornographic magazines and finds themselves asking the questions of "What does it mean to be a sexual being?" and "What is the true meaning of erotic pleasure" would get a lot out of this story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, definitely Anais, the protagonist; I thought she was "ballsy". She felt like being a trophy wife wasn't all it was cracked up to be. High profile guys like her husband are used to women throwing themselves at them and she felt like it wasn't fair that he was the only one getting his jollies somewhere else.She wasn't going to relent until she got to experience firsthand the sacred, spiritual meaning of her sexuality.

What about Marie Hélène’s performance did you like?

She hits the ball out of the park, very sensuous and fitting for this work. Handles superbly the complex nuances of emotion that the women were feeling.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Well, it can be enjoyed in different increments, without losing too much of the important messages. You could listen to it in one sitting if you liked, but if you preferred you could take a break and come back to it (just to see what exciting adventure was coming up next.)

Any additional comments?

Tantric sexuality is so much deeper than what we see in the movies. It comes from Eastern wisdom that teaches people and their partners that it is so much more than a routine "quickie" and a roll in the hay. It is very holistic in nature.

Exciting Erotica, well written and narrated

What made the experience of listening to The Desires of Anais and Her Stirring Sexuality: Her Journey in the Sextremes the most enjoyable?

This was the first time I have listened to an erotica audio book and I found it extremely entertaining. The story has a really good plot and in terms of erotica is very entertaining, put this together with the beautiful voice of Marie Helene and the experience of listening becomes a very sensual one.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved everything about it, the plot was strong, the characters had depth and were realistic. I loved the main character Anais, I loved the combination of her innocence and vulnerability combined with her personal strength. Most of all I loved the way the Carvill allowed her to be so deliciously feminine, Carvill really does celebrate her femininity, he made me fall in love with her, I desired her... and at the end of the book... I wanted her myself.

What about Marie Hélène’s performance did you like?

The sensual quality of Marie Helene's voice added so much to the listeners experience overall. Subtle changes in her voice characterization made the plot easy to follow. Marie Helene does not just read this book to the listener, she becomes each and every charactor, her voice it right inside your head talking to you, making it an very intimate experience

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Desiring Anais... The pleasure and sensuality of a real woman

Any additional comments?

If you are a fan of erotica then you will love this book. If you have not read any erotica before then you should absolutley start with this one
