Book Description

April 30 2006
"I begin, knowing that what I write may never be read...that law and the possibility of scandal may erase forever my name and account for fear of threatening what society deems decent. In matters sexual I am aware only of truth, though because this truth of which I write cannot clearly be expressed in 'the language of a lady', I know my story may be more than public morals can bear. So be it." -- From the memoirs of Susanna, Lady F Kidnapped and shipwrecked on a tropic isle, the Lady Susanna finds that paradise comes complete with the willing and most intimate worship of the natives, who appoint her as their goddess of love and fertility. When the island paradise is invaded by devils in the form of a priestly slave-trader and his crew, Susanna is forced to protect the people who consider her their goddess, rather than to succumb to the evil brought by her own countrymen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Expectation July 7 2006
By Aspire Behr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can't say enough good things about this novel. As I read I was transported back in time by both the story content and Raiment's style of writing. The vocabulary he uses as well as the style of punctuation and grammar serve to hold the reader in the Victorian era. It is a wonderful story with some very interesting twists and you are left to wonder, even hope, that it actually is a true account of one woman's great life adventure.

Beyond the story itself, you also sense the author's strong feelings regarding the make up of today's society, the unwritten rules of our culture that often limit us as human beings. He offers up an idyllic alternative to tease your imagination.

In my opinion this novel is destined to become the "Fanny Hill" or "Lady Chatterley's Lover" of our time. A book not to be passed over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aphrodite Overboard July 10 2006
By Cliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Is this fiction? The way the story is told, in that lovely "bygone English" - it makes it all seem so very believable and real.

"Erotic" appears in the subtitle and erotic this novel is! Sex in all its lovely forms. Heats the blood and gets it headed to all the right places ......... it did for me. 170 pages of delicious eroticism: kinky and straight but always beautifully handled. Susanna is sweet, Susanna is insatiable. Sinful (and beautiful) writing Mr./Ms. Raiment.

P.S. Are drawings available for that chair? Nobody's 'playroom' should be without one!
5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem April 10 2010
By Richard V Raiment - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for a lady friend who had never read erotica before, and she loved it. If the Story of O is your thing, if you find the pain and humiliation of others a turn-on, then Aphrodite Overboard is NOT for you. If you'd like to imagine love and sex in a tropical paradise where the prejudices of the 'civilized' world are unknown, then this is, indeed, a little gem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Cheese! Oct. 16 2006
By Ziggyb12 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read The Story of O (which was phenominal, I couldn't put it down) the night before I read this one and I was so diappointed. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of eroticism but the story line is so cheesy and unbelievable! The Story of O was much better!
