Publisher's Summary

Jenny Nordbak takes us to a place that few have seen but millions have fantasized about, revealing how she transformed herself from a USC grad lacking in confidence into an elite professional dominatrix who finds her own voice, power, and compassion for others.

On an unorthodox quest to understand her hidden fantasies, Jenny led a double life for two years. By day she was a construction manager, but at night she became Mistress Scarlett. Working at LA's longest-running dungeon, she catered to the secret fetishes of clients ranging from accountants to movie stars. She simultaneously developed a career in the complex and male-dominated world of health-care construction while spending her nights as a sex worker, dominating men. Far from the standard-issue powerful men who pay to be helpless, Mistress Scarlett's clientele included men whose fantasies revealed more complex needs, from "Tickle Ed" to "Doggie Dan", from the "Treasure Trolls" to "Ta-Da Ted". The Scarlett Letters explores the spectacularly diverse array of human sexuality and the fascinating cast of characters that the author encountered along the way.

Amazing! One of the BEST books I have ever read.

This is one of the BEST books I have ever read. While it does have allot of sexual intrigue in it, there is also a great story on how a person can grow and navigate life through many different situations.
Unlike many books out there that were looking to capitalize on the fame that the 50 shades movie/ book brought to the mainstream anyone who is "in" the lifestyle knows what she is saying is 100% spot on accurate! She was the real deal but she is so much more than that.
Her genuine compassion for people left me speechless.
I am sure to be a long time reader of hers!
BUY THIS BOOK. IT'S WORTH IT!!

Not sure what to think about this book 🤔

I really have no words. I loved how it ended but through out most of the book it was TMI. Thought this book would really interest me b/c I do have a naughty side but was way to much to listen to sometime. I keep hearing myself say “ ewwww..... that is so gross, people are really into that 😵🥴. I’m not a judgmental person by any means but WOW is all I can say.

Beautiful.

I am deeply moved by such a fierce and bold telling of an incredible human journey through a veritable cornucopia of colorful experiences. Thank you for gifting a piece of your life, yourself. I laughed, gasped, delighted, raged, and eventually wept all throughout the entire book. There was not a single second that did not command my attention . I was beautifully touched by the experience.
Thank you.

Best,
John

An Amazing Tale

Not what I expected, it was so much more. The story is open, shocking and honestly unashamed of itself. Its such an intense ride that by the end I just wanted more. So well written and beautifully read.
