Highlight Story

In an attempt to cash in on the growing interest in adult fiction, author Eve Sinclair will release Jane Eyre Laid Bare, an erotic reimagining of the Charlotte Brontë classic novel.

The author described it as "an erotic version of my favourite classic".

She added, "I think that readers through the ages have appreciated the smouldering sexual chemistry between Jane and Rochester and I have changed very little of Bronte's original to retell the timeless story of a young girl falling for an unattainable older man and getting out of her depth in a sensual world she cannot control", reported The Bookseller.

In the past too many such racy versions of classics have hit the bookstores, prominent among which were Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts and Unmasqued: An Erotic Novel of The Phantom of The Opera.
