But things in her perfectly constructed world shift when Autumn discovers a life shattering secret. Needing to change her life drastically Autumn meets a mysterious and sexy stranger who could be the solution to her probl
ems. Autumn is thrown into a luxurious new world. One that is powered by high flyers, fantasies and carnal desires. How will she escape? Or, does this new world hold the key to her own fulfilment? Annabelle Knight’s debut novel The Endless Autumn is a sizzling, steamy and sexually sinister story of how a girl next door, unwittingly – but perhaps not unwillingly – explores the fringes of desire and release.
