Sinner Takes All: A Memoir of Love and Porn



'[This] fast-reading memoir whips form knowing to naïve and back as it tracks its plucky protagonist from ugly duckling school days to international adult superstardom.'- The Dallas Morning News

Tera Patrick wasn't always Tera Patrick.  Once upon a time she was a gangly, teenaged bookworm named Linda Ann Hopkins, obsessed with serial killers and Marilyn Monroe and determined to make men all over the world one day desire her. And she succeeded: Today she sits atop the porn world, has graced the cover of every major men's magazine, and runs her own multimillion-dollar empire.  More important, she did it on her own terms.

Sinner Takes All is a sexy and deeply personal memoir in which Tera bares all about baring all.  Tera discusses losing her virginity at age fourteen to a man twice her age while working as a international fashion model, working as a nurse at a senior citizen's home, her on- and off-screen sexual escapade, clawing her way to the peak of porn, the emotional obstacles that she's had to overcome, and how love and marriage fit into the triple-X world.

An honest and naked look at a one-of-a-kind life, Sinner Takes All is a riveting memoir of the making of a modern sex goddess.'Orgasms, like laughter, can be faked, but it's better when they're not.  Tera doesn't fake anything is this revealing and inspiring book.'- Margaret Cho

'This book is an inspirational read with a clear message: There are no limits when one is determined, motivated, and driven.'- Dave Navarro

'She's a girl who knows what she wants and gets it.  That's what's cool about Tera Patrick.'- Carmen Electra
