AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Under her Chanel suit and designer lingerie, Connie Carven is no longer the typical banker′s wife. Since Cliff′s dreadful skiing accident Connie has become a willing submissive to her husband′s every desire.

While at first she enjoys a perverse sense of freedom within the ever-tightening bonds of her marriage, this dark and seductive passion consumes her entirely. She finds herself surrendering to an act that will forever remind her that she belongs to her husband alone - to be unlocked only by him, whenever he pleases.

But it is this that awakens Connie from her slumber. In the communal garden of her Notting Hill home, she meets Mel and discovers the thrill of true intimacy.

As the author of the bestselling phenomenon The Bride Stripped Bare and the exquisite With My Body, Nikki Gemmell brought erotic writing into the 21st century; she now looks back to Lady Chatterley′s Lover for inspiration. D.H. Lawrence′s celebrated tale of desire is retold for today and the deliciously provocative I Take You is a modern love story, both earthily passionate and wickedly tantalising.' (Publisher's blurb)
