A second visit means twice the temptation:
Charlotte Vallent receives a letter from Mrs Konya, formidable mistress of ‘the Estate’, inviting her to return to that daydream mill of pleasure, a place committed to fulfilling a woman’s sexual fantasies. Any woman. And pretty much any fantasy.
It’s taken Charlotte a year to shake off last year’s visit and her participation in the Calyx Programme. But has she recovered from the gorgeous Grigori, her nocturnal watcher, helper, protector and, for one incredible night, her lover? Will he be there if she returns, and, if so, will they be able to say goodbye a second time?

Opening the Rose is a follow-up to the erotic romance In the Calyx, though can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
