Eve Sinclair first fell in love with the novels of Bronte and Austen at an early age and later went on to study English Literature at University. She has since worked as a copy-writer, journalist and editor and now divides her time between her shared passions of tending her English garden and travelling extensively abroad. She is the author of Jane Eyre Laid Bare.

Rather than an all-out retelling, Sinclair's mashup reads more like Victorian erotica with trace elements of Bronte. Sinclair removes the novel's opening sections about Jane's family and school life to get immediately to her heroine's arrival as an 18-year-old governess at Thornfield Hall. Unlike the original's somber abode, this version of Mr. Rochester's home is filled with sexually suggestive paintings and lascivious servants and guests. While Sinclair can treat Jane and Rochester's physical attraction much more frankly than Bronte, it's at the expense of their emotional chemistry. Sex scenes that rarely rise above the mundane, as well as a prurient sensibility that typically consigns Jane to the passive role of voyeur, means readers may be better served creating their own fan-fic or investigating the similar Jane Eyrotica.
