"Described as 'the real Fifty Shades' the volume by the mistress of literary erotica is a kinky fairy tale inspired by the San Francisco writer’s own experiences and private diaries."—SF Examiner

"There is a strength in her submission not a desperation."—Inner Goddess

"If you have never read an Alison Tyler story here are the main things you need to know: they are traditionally rich vivid and deep but most importantly they’re real. Her characters don’t just intrigue you; they jump out of the pages take your wrists and drag you into the backseat of a speeding car destined for a journey full of sights sounds ideas and memories. You won’t read her work—you’ll feel it."—Jade A. Waters

"A whirlwind of pleasure and pain."—Kissin' Blue Karen

Alison Tyler "mistress of literary erotica" has mined her memoirs spinning a kinky fairy tale with a happily-ever-after ending. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O and 9 1/2 Weeks-style journey fueled by lust longing and the search for true love. Inspired by her BDSM lifestyle and based on her private diaries Tyler draws on her twenty-five years' experience penning sultry stories to create a scorchingly hot work of autobiographical fiction a meta-novel with reality at the core. Take a deep breath and get your safe word handy. Alison Tyler will push your boundaries to their limits—and have you begging for more.
