“Within the Sanctum of the Heart” is a book that exudes with passion, warmth and love, as the writer says:

“I  am like an extremist, and you are my cause
Your goal is my goal, your summit is my purpose, and your glory is my mission
With you and for you I know no half-solutions,
Either I will be entirely yours
And you will be entirely mine
Or otherwise, our gathering will remain like the horizon
And you and I, like the sky and the sea
seeming so close, yet so far apart!”

And in another verse she says:
“What has a beginning has an end,
and if I must have a beginning,
then you are my beginning and you are certainly my never-ending…
How  blissful it is that I begin on your lips
And end up as a drizzle of femininity… also on your lips
Here I start anew, like the Phoenix,
Burning within your love and shivering with womanliness
Then I flounce once again in a renewed desire
for you,
for your love,
for your manhood,
for your weight upon me…”

“Within the Sanctum of the Heart” is more than just a great book, in form and in substance, it was written from the heart and the intellect to reach each heart and every intellect… Enjoy reading it…
