I’ve been schooled in the art of love and seduction at such an early age that ushered in hopeless romantic ideals that my mom and aunts often shook their heads when I voice out that I want to marry a Highlander — the real one traipsing around wearing kilts (and knicker-less) around the highlands of Scotland.
Although they’re not as brawny as the lairds in my dreams, it’s no surprise that I’ve developed a love for dark, brooding fellas like Rochester or the Austen male characters.
Thus, my love of plain Jane Eyre and her naive love and travails.
There’s been a re-imagined version of the classic that is more daring and shall I daresay risque. With some hot scenes, BDSM-style, and Jane (mirroring Fifty Shades of Grey’s Anastasia Steele) being the not-so-innocent recipient of some rough lovin’, one would think, “Are these re-imagined versions just riding the bandwagon popularized by more prolific erotica authors such as E.L. James, K. Bromberg, Meredith Wild, Katy Evans and J. Kenner to name a few?”
I’ll let you marinate on that thought, but nothing beats the classic.
