Tuesday Teaser - from 'the King of the erotic thriller'

Lolita meets Story of O, another memorable tale of love, sex and feelings
from 'the King of the erotic thriller' Maxim Jakubowski.

When Ekaterina meets Alexander a shockingly sexy but tender romance develops.

She is a young Italian trainee journalist, who dreams of wild sexual adventures. He is the older Englishman who she believes can fulfill her fantasies. When Ekaterina is sent to interview the ageing writer Alexander in London, she is blinded by his charm and experience. Their relationship explodes in a sensual orgy, which defies society’s acceptance.

When a mysterious angel of death who calls herself Emma enters their lives, Ekaterina and Alexander know their days together are numbered.

A shocking climax set in Venice in winter brings the three protagonists together.


A tale of sex and tenderness that ranks alongside
Jakubowski's  classic The State of Montana.
