Clandestine Classics-sex is no longer just under the covers
If you’ve ever wondered what would happen between the sheets with Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, you’re in luck.
Clandestine Classics founder Claire Siemaszkiewicz said: ”Some people will love this and some will hate it. We’re hoping we’ll change their minds or blow their minds.”
Clandestine Classics launches today, with five classics heated to the point of boiling. I am excited to be one of the launch authors with my version of Northanger Abbey. The original novel still stands with the erotic scenes interwoven with the original story.
Ex: 

The storm still raged, and various were the noises, more terrific even than the wind, which struck at intervals on her startled ear…She began to wish for Henry Tilney to find his way secretly to her room to help allay her nervousness.

When the door to her room opened she searched frantically for something with which to defend herself… “What are you doing here?” she whispered, noticing he had divested himself of all his clothes save a thin pair of breeches and a loose shirt.
“I feared the storm would disturb you and wanted to ease you through it… Open your mouth for me, sweet Catherine,” he urged. “Let me in.” She did and when his tongue swept inside it filled her with pleasure.
The first five Clandestine Classics are: Jane Eyre, Northanger Abbey, Pride and prejudice, A Study in Scarlet and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Here is the link to preorder them:

Check this all out and be the first to preorder the books.

    Really enjoyed the excerpt! I love that you take classics and give them a modern-day twist, taking them further than the original books did.

    Saw the launch mentioned in The Times in the UK. Could make studying the ‘classics’ a bit more interesting.

    I’ll be reading, for sure. I WOULD say that, as I’m a TeB author, but I’m also a fan of Desiree’s anyway, so why the heck not? :D
