Book Description

Sometimes ordinary is no longer enough

Jenni Adams doesn't recognize how unhappy she is until she sees the young couple staying in the beach house. They seem to have everything her life is missing. They obviously love each other, they have a beautiful baby, and they don't appear to fight. Ever.

Kim and Joe Fransiscus are rediscovering each other following the birth of their daughter. This vacation is meant to be a chance to relax, but the beautiful woman who comes to swim from the house next door attracts them both. When Kim teases Joe with a hint of her interest events take a new and steamy turn. Joe has no idea Kim is into lesbian sex, but once the idea is planted he cannot get it out of his head.

For Jenni’s husband Mark the years keep getting tougher. His business is failing, his marriage with it, and Mark has no idea what he can do to save them. His frustration emerges as violence, a violence that turns against more than his wife, because no one is going to take his property from him.

The Beach House is a story driven by lust, sensuality and anger. Three individuals make a decision to stop fighting their desires. A fourth can no longer fight his compulsion to strike out.

Warning: Includes scenes of lesbian sex, masturbation, anal sex, group sex, breast feeding, lactation and jellyfish.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Tess Harding started writing fiction at the age of 9, but had to wait until she was 24 before being published professionally. That was a long time ago, and somewhere along the way real life demanded her attention and she drifted away from writing until recently. Tess writes erotic fiction which, she believes, is different. Many works under that banner consist of graphic and extreme sex. Tess believes that true eroticism only comes from character and storyline. Therefore, her fiction may take a while to get going, but it will get you there in the end and, it can be argued, will result in greater satisfaction. Tess Harding lives with her partner near Hereford, close to the border between England and Wales, where myth is still strong and civilization a thin veneer. Raised on the East Coast of America, she spends most of her time at her home looking over green fields and a river. She also travels when she can, particularly loving France and Italy, as well as making forays back to the land of her birth to visit friends and relatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale well-told with intense eroticism September 2, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A young married couple find themselves propelled by their overwhelming libidos toward a beautiful, sexually unfulfilled and battered woman--and she feels the same magnetic sexual attraction toward both of them. The story gradually unfolds in an atmosphere of intense eroticism with very explicit sexual encounters motivated by both love and lust. Lurking in the background is an abusive husband and the possibility of violent revenge. Well written.
Some readers might be put off by some eroticism involving breast milk or by a few scenes that include analingus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caution: Contains Hot scenes and jellyfish! July 24, 2011
How many times have you looked at a couple and thought..Why? Why would she put up with that? The answer often varies and more often than not its unpleasant. The same goes for our Cinderella.. ..Jenni. Many of us spend our lives being afraid of our own desires or being made to feel ashamed of them because they are not what society deems as normal. What is the meaning of that horrid word anyway? Jenni is no different. Being ashamed of herself and her reputation she tries to change it and herself by marrying someone who is her opposite. Too bad that it ended up being a really bad decision. It gets worse as Mark tries to turn the only thing that Jenni holds dear against her and begins to beat her. So, she loses herself in her job and her swimming...the only real escape from her reality. She wants to run away from her marriage but she feels beat down and deserving of her circumstances. Then she comes across her idea of the perfect couple and her whole life changes. Most times our adult fairy tales are quite different from our childhood ones, as Jenni soon discovers when things heat up between our little menage.
This book is about being true to yourself and following your desires, even if they are quite different than those of the general society. Jenni was a real lifelike and likable character faced with real problems. Even though many people in her situation don't get a fairy tale ending, or even close, our Cinderella becomes the heroine in her own adult fairytale. Which just so happens to involve silk ties, sex, and jellyfish! This was a really good read!

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Ending... December 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good book until the ending which went down hill and unbelievable at the climax of the story. Very reminiscent of Earl Had to Die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Characters themselves are realistically portrayed July 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A serious but hot story about a FMF menage. Although the plot is somewhat contrived, the characters themselves are pretty believable and realistically portrayed.
