Sexing up the classics

From publisher Total-e-Bound:

"Classic novels including Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, and Sherlock Holmes are to get a steamy 18-certificate make-over from some of the world's leading erotic fiction writers it was announced today.

"The much-loved works of literature  by famed authors including Charlotte and Emily Brontë, and Arthur Conan Doyle — have been re-imagined for the very first time as works of adult fiction by the UK's leading specialist publisher Total-E-Bound, complete with graphic sex and fetish scenes.

"In the 'scorching hot' new versions — available as eBooks from the 30th July - eponymous heroine Jane Eyre has explosive sex with Mr Rochester, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy smoulder with unbridled passion in their erotic romance, and 19th century detective Sherlock Holmes enters into a gay relationship with sidekick Dr Watson. 

"Other books being re-worked by erotic romance specialist publisher Total-E-Bound for the launch of the new Clandestine Classics collection are Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and 20,000 Leagues under the Sea by early science-fiction writer Jules Verne.

"The re-worked versions of the classics include the full text of the original books spiced with a series of specially written new scenes featuring adult content to provide a seamless reading experience.  While 19th century society demanded that novels only went so far when it came to depicting the true passionate nature of love and romance, the new series, released under the banner 'Clandestine Classics' invites readers to put the old-fashioned pleasantries to one side and enjoy the sensual scenes that were only ever alluded to in the original versions."
