Publisher's Summary

An erotic retelling of a timeless literary classic.
Jane Eyre has lived a sheltered, callous life. Orphaned at a young age and despised by her remaining family, she is shipped off to Lowood School and can only dream of tenderness and affection. Upon accepting a governess position at Thornfield Hall, a world of passion, desire, and sex explodes before her naive eyes in the form of the brooding, dashing master of the house: Mr. Rochester. Jane finds herself succumbing to his savage, brutal lust and losing herself in the intense heat of her yearning. Jane believes that beneath Mr. Rochester's dark, handsome, and sometimes brutal exterior there must be a heart, and she is desperate to find love in his hungry caresses. But then, she discovers something in the attic...and her world is turned upside down forever.
In this cleverly retold classic, sex collides with corsets in a burst of erotic, mash-up fiction, bringing the searing heat of Fifty Shades of Grey to the dark secrets of one of literature's finest novels, Jane Eyre.

Audible Editor Reviews

The sexual charge many read between the lines in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is has been made much more intimate, electrifying, satisfying, and oh, so, quite un-Victorian. There is more to the tale and couplings than the will-they-or-won’t-they (they will!) of Jane and Mr. Rochester. Heather Wilds, veteran of the London stage, as well as television and film, ranges from innocence to cruelty from yearning to culmination as she performs this erotic mashup of a literary classic many have read and the story of sexual appetites fulfilled most of them imagined.

Bland

I bought this book looking for a fun, sexy, campy "romp". I wanted to imagine what those prim and proper characters from one of my favourite novels were REALLY up to, the bits Bronte wouldn't tell us. I wanted to see taboos broken. I wanted sex to explode off every page.

What I got was a seriously abridged version of the classic with seven or eight sex scenes added in. That's less than one sex scene per hour. You cannot call that erotica. And the sex is so...bland. It's all male/female, for starters. And no threesomes, groups, etc. No voyeurism. No kink. Sure, a riding crop makes a token appearance (it doesn't really get used), and at once point Jane's hands are bound above her head with a bed curtain tie. Yawn.

On the plus side, the reader was very good. She might be the only reason I finished the book.

I Enjoyed The Book

I really enjoyed the book from start to finish. Although I don't think it is erotic more a historical romance with some resonable sex scenes. The narrator did an excellent job with the delivery of the story. Well worth the credit.
