If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You, you'll adore The 52 Seductions...
When Betty and Herbert first fell in love, they were caught in a whirlwind of mutual lust and sexual chemistry - they couldn't keep their hands off one another. Ten years of marriage later, they're still deeply in love... but the memory of all that frenzied passion is growing increasingly hazy.
The 52 Seductions charts Betty and Herbert's quest to invite the lust back into their relationship and rediscover their desire for one another. Drastic action is needed, and so Betty sets a challenge: they must spend a whole year seducing each other, taking it in turns to create a steamy new scenario every week.
We follow their progress as they explore their erotic fantasies (with varying degrees of success); embark on saucy role play and attempt some sexual gymnastics. Racy, funny and ultimately moving, this is the story of how one couple lost their inhibitions and reignited their desire.
Betty Herbert lives by the sea with her husband and much-adored cat, Bob. In real life, she's been a PA, a marketing consultant, a teacher, a writing tutor, a cultural producer and a director of a literary festival that never quite happened. She likes sea-swimming, cocktails, Stevie Wonder, swallows and holidaying in Devon.
