I Take You
From the author of the bestsellers The Bride Stripped Bare and With My Body, a new twist on a classic tale of passion.
Set in Notting Hill, this modern-day version of ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ sees a banker’s wife awaken to the erotic possibilities of her life.
Connie Carven is devoted to her husband, who is left paralysed from the waist down following an accident. But this is no less than he demands – in fact, he insists on Connie’s utter subservience to his every desire. But unable to physically satisfy his wife, Clifford is eager to explore new, strange and troubling avenues of passion. Connie, ever the dutiful wife, follows wherever he leads.
And yet Connie is bursting with unfulfilled desire. Unfulfilled, that is, until the communal gardener enters, and their affair accelerates to its tense, shuddering conclusion.
