Secret love letters sent by former president John F. Kennedy to a Swedish woman went up for auction for the first time Monday.Gunilla Von Post met Kennedy, who was a senator at the time, in 1953 on the French Riviera.

The two kept in touch by writing letters and telegrams through the years---even after JFK married Jackie "O".

The 78 year old first revealed the affair in a book in 1997, then on 20/20.

The 14 letters and telegrams are now being offered to the public through an online auction.

Bidding begins at $25,000 and will be sold as a collection.
