It's quite clear Carew did her homework -- the references to tantric sex and the Kama Sutra are quite accurate, as is the basic hypnotic trance induction. Hanna, Grey and J.M. are multidimensional and sympathetic characters. The sex scenes are varied and include threesomes, toys and leather/bondage, and the story is endearing. Fans of traditional romance may be surprised at the twist to the typical happy ending, but it really does fit with the rest of the story.

What if you'd never had an orgasm? Hanna is convinced that Grey doesn't love her because she can't achieve the ultimate release. They sign up for a class in tantric sex and Kama Sutra techniques right before she dumps him, but Grey is determined to win Hanna back and attends the course without her, hoping to learn something that will help. He has no clue that the instructor, J.M., is helping Hanna overcome her "problem" with private lessons! (St. Martin's, Jun., 288 pp., $13.95)
