Lyons realistically depicts the lust, love and complications of an interracial love affair. Readers will devour every word as fast as these two lovers devour each other.

Suzanne's friends convince her to place an online personal to find the African-American "dream" lover she met while vacationing in Crete. Though she doesn't expect to find him, Jaxon responds to the ad, and they pick up right where they left off on the island, trying to keep their relationship bound by their "champagne rules."

But love manages to find its way in, and Suzanne and Jaxon begin to question the reality of their relationship and their life choices.
