Product description

Product Description

* All David craved in his childhood was the love and acceptance his parents would not give him. Their denial of affection festered in him, and bitterness and darkness grew until it consumed him. Shadowy secrets, manipulation and cruelty become the weapons of his vengeful nature. Control of a vast financial empire finally gives him the power he long coveted. Marty, a stunning femme fatale with a provocative tattoo reenters David’s life. Her insatiable dark urges for male attention lead her astray from respectability and love with a good man. Through their twisted psychological attraction David and Marty discover they enjoy mutual sinister thoughts.

Marty attempts respectability. She sets her eye and heart on a loving man who offers normalcy, but her wanton hunger keeps luring her to return to the depths of depravity. Another woman holds a prior claim on her love interest and simmering jealousies threaten to flare into open hostility. Marty is determined to destroy her. She commits herself to do the unthinkable to win her man.

Controlled by the Devil in her DNA, Marty savors flashbacks to her iniquitous seductions of her teacher and other lovers. Conflicting inner voices wrack her emotions leaving her helplessly catatonic and crying. Her roiled feelings reach a shocking climax when David cleverly makes a spellbinding offer packaged with an irresistibly delicious choice. Escape from torment is within her grasp, or she may choose to reach for everything and risk upending her world.

Erotic, emotionally sensitive and provocative, THE SECRET AND THE BUTTERFLY will speak to your heart, absorb your soul and cause your thoughts to flutter in wonderment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read. Highly, highly recommend! 22 May 2017
By DEZ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this story! It’s intensely romantic and wildly erotic. The beginning is not about naughty stuff girls do, not at all what author Rosemary sets you up to experience. No, it’s about dark pernicious evil that is bound and determined to suffocate true innocent passionate love. The revelations just keep on coming in this masterful tale. Analogies and metaphors are cleverly used to give your mind front flips and back flips. Plots are layered within plots as you see how the evil master, David, harnesses the talents of a nymphomaniac to do his bidding for profit; then how he cleverly manipulates the three lovers within a love triangle to channel events to his liking.
I felt the frustrations of Barbara while she holds her passions in check. I felt the carnal lusts of Marty while she seduced her lovers and demolished their significant others. My Kindle was on fire with her hot love scenes.
This book totally engrossed me and I found myself thinking about it while I was at work, eager to get back to reading it. I felt a gamut of emotions: frustration, hatred, compassion, apprehension, desire. The way the author develops the characters is masterful. She pulls you in and you get lost in the story and the characters.
There were so many parts that made my heart race wondering how it was all going to turn out. I kept turning the pages, fascinated by the twists and turns of this wonderful story. Totally a 5 star story all the way! I must say I’ve learned more about devious evil behaviors, financial crime methods, seduction and simple wisdom than I ever thought possible. I totally loved it. I recommend it highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars #WOW 19 January 2017
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Secret and the Butterfly is an out of the box original story that left me with no words. So instead of failing at trying to describe what I just read, I'll just attempt to describe my feelings. I'm usually down to try and read whatever, but I've been taken way out of my comfort zone. It wasn't easy keeping up, as there's A LOT going on with A LOT of people involved. But I can honestly say that I wasn't, not once, bored, or finding myself glossing over parts. Rosemary Ness Bitner has a very talented, and HIGHLY ORIGINAL writing style that will never ever be duplicated, that's for sure! The story is very erotic, and dirty, so gird your loins, and protect your panties! I'm very intrigued to see what she comes out with next, as I know without a shadow of a doubt, that it will be a hell of a ride. So while I'm HIGHLY RECOMMENDING this insane journey, I will end with this thought, I'll NEVER look at butterflies the same way again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and Intriguing...thoroughly enjoyable 16 January 2017
By Ria - Reading Is Our Satisfaction - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What an intrigung introduction to an author. This book appealed to me because of the dark psychological nature that each character displayed. They are all searching for something that they believe to be unattainable. The depth and complexity of each character and their storylines are what kept me glued to this book. Ms Ness-Bitner's erotic scenes are just that, highly erotic and steamy. So if you don't like this type of reading, then I woudn't recommend it to you. There are numerous triggers when reading this book - so tread lightly. The flow of the book made it an easy and, might I say, enoyable one too. There was a definite conclusion at the end so you are not left hanging. It will be interesting to see what Ms Ness-Bitner comes up with next.

I voluntarily reviewed this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense Story! 11 January 2017

My Review of The Secret and the Butterfly by Rosemary Lightfoot Ness-Bitner
My Rating 4 stars
What a Read! This is a very intense story and it was very different from what I’m used to reading. I enjoyed the different elements and the psychological behaviors that each character shows us. The erotic elements are very hot, this is not a read for anyone who may have triggers when reading. The story was well written and refreshing from what I’m used to. I look forward to more from this author so I can see where she takes our minds next!
