For Philip Larkin, one of our chippiest English poets, sex began in 1963, too late for him. In his 'Annus Mirabilis' poem, he says sex began between the failed attempt to ban D.H.Lawrence's 'Lady Chatterly's Lover' because of its explicit references to sex and the Beatles' first LP. In 1971, our traditionally prudish attitudes to sex were turned into comedy in 'No Sex Please, We're British.'


But the sexual jack-in-a-box was out of his box and never going back. Maybe we were more innocent back the

I have to applaud Stuart Aken for a memorable story that inhabits your mind long after you’ve clicked that last page.

It starts with a ‘broken’ Faith, a young woman abominably treated by her bully of a father, a puritanical hypocrite. When she eventually manages to flee from her hell, she is taken in by a successful photographer, Leigh, who is loved, adored and revered by women. The idolatry he receives from thousands of women is reciprocated with sex; lots and lots and lots of it, shamelessly an

You often hear about stories that stay with you long after they have been read. Well, for me this was 'that' story. I was bombarded by several different emotions whilst reading this book and I loved every minute of it!

This book was a rites of passage tale. We are taken on a journey by the female lead of this story and how her life changes therein. I was amazed at how much time and emotion I invested in each of the characters – really feeling their every emotion, they were so real to me. I also l

This is set in the sizzling English summer of 1976 when reservoirs dried up in the Yorkshire Dales. Aken brings the setting alive so that it is one of the characters. The plot deals with innocent Faith's journey into knowledge of love, but she also suffers hardship and threats on the way. I read this in one sitting and know it is one of that small group of books I shall happily return to again and again. I've read it twice already. Aken's delicate brush strokes of colour make the main characters ...more

If you like your novels in the erotic field, try this story of glamour photographer & local stud Leighton and naive Faith, finding her feet and her place in the world after being mentally abused by her father. All to the backdrop of beautiful Yorkshire Dales landscapes in the scorching summer of 1976.

A romantic thriller with heart-wrenching twists and turns. You'll be backing the heroine all the way.

Reading from infancy. Writing stories since I could hold a pencil. Always fascinated by the power of words to entertain, illuminate, transform, educate, and influence. Stories are fundamental to our psyche: we love them. It's an honour to be privileged to tell my own versions of tales that have abounded for millennia.
Fantasy fascinates me: that ability to enter an imagined world and witness events
