"Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical."
Sophia Loren
Sophisticated humor, words of wisdom, quotations from history's famous female lovers, and practical advice for women who are bent on seduction are juxtaposed with stylish photos in this delightful collection of thoughts about sensual love. Readers will find short chapters that touch on seductive perfumes, clothes, fabrics, and colors. There is also advice on the best times and places for seduction, seductive body language, mood music, and even creating a seductive boudoir. Photos of Mae West, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Ginger Rodgers dancing with Fred Astaire, and Vivian Leigh held in Clark Gable's embrace in Gone With the Wind are just a few among dozens of illustrations that will evoke both sensual and nostalgic memories. A few of this book's epigrams are anonymous, for instance, "If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?" Still others are words of wisdom from knowledgeable women like Marlene Dietrich: "The average man is more interested in a woman who is interested in him than he is in a woman any woman with beautiful legs." Ms. Dietrich was, of course, world-famous for her own beautiful legs. Photos many in color on most two-page spreads.

From the Back Cover:

[back cover]
“The potion drunk by lovers is prepared by no one but themselves”
—Ana¯s Nin

Though many of us accept that we will never be in the same league as, say, Marlene Dietrich or Mae West when it comes to seducing members of the opposite sex, invariably there comes a time when we need to employ the skills, charm, and confidence of a Hollywood Goddess.

Never knowing when this moment might be, we should be fully prepared. Fortunately, there are a few tricks that can help us.

This book can help you discover some of the ways to make yourself more seductive, through dress, etiquette, romantic gestures, and occasionally, by playing hard to get.

With plenty of practical tips and advice, all delivered with a modest dose of humor and a sprinkling of choice quotes from some of history’s greatest female lovers, this is one love potion you’ll want to use time and again.
