There is no confusing Thea Devine's work with any one elses. She is at the forefront in descriptive eroticism. There is sex galore, everywhere!!! SECRET PLEASURES traces one woman's road from a quick and unexpected violent act making her a widow (and the chief suspect) through treachery and debauchery and then back to some degree of normalcy. This book questions family commitment and loyalties. It also looks into the secret night lives of "respectable" people. The reader is taken into "gentlemen's" clubs consisting of rooms where anything one wishes can be obtained if he (or she) can pay. SECRET PLEASURES is a different kind of book. It doesn't really fall into what we consider romance. There is not much emotional attachment and the storyline is farfetched. But I must admit, it was hard to put down.

What to say. This story was sexual, sensual, romantic, mysterious - with many twists & turns - but mostly haunting (and not the ghostly kind; the kind that will stick in your memory for a long time) The storyline meanders along, but the end will knock your socks off!
