An Almanac for the Heart tHE BRIDE StRIPPED BARE exposed female desire as no other book had; raw, intoxicating and breathtakingly libidinous. Now PLEASURE looks set to do the same with more secret women's business - dealing candidly with everything from Brazilian waxes to 'secret' underwear, from coping with broken hearts to what makes a perfect partner (a checklist to cut out and keep), from advice on the friends who flatten you (frenemies) to the importance of empathy. Both bold and intimate, PLEASURE is a book Nikki Gemmell says she looked for as a gift for a cherished friend - and never found. So she decided to write it herself. Encased in a stunning design package with beautiful feminine illustrations, this is an ideal gift for your best friend, aunt, sister or fairy godmother.
