Lessons and Lovers

A novel by

From the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of IN TOO DEEP...

What happens when a perfectly civilized sexual arrangement turns into a minefield of turbulent emotion?

Wealthy widow Hettie Miller misses her dead husband terribly, but is still beset by a gnawing physical desire. Lonely and confused, she turns to Starr, her late husband's personal assistant, who discreetly supplies an after dark solution. At night, he comes to her bed and thrills her with intense, breath-taking sex, even though by day, their employer/employee relationship is scrupulously formal and hands off.

But Starr loves Hettie. He's loved her since the first time he ever met her, but until now, he's always managed to conceal it beneath a mask of immaculate manners and rigidly controlled reserve.

During a summer getaway at her secluded country mansion, it finally dawns on Hettie that her feelings for Starr are far more than simply carnal, and the parameters of their relationship start to change...

This short novel is approximately 50,000 words long and was previously published by Ellora's Cave.

Author's note: LESSONS AND LOVERS is an escapist erotic fantasy. If the characters existed in the real world, they would always use condoms.
