Art professor Elizabeth Gilstrom's life is shattered when her husband of 10 years leaves her for a younger woman. She chose a life of stability instead of following her dream of becoming an artist. To compensate for her loss, she focuses more attention on her career.

Twenty-four-year-old Boone McCrea, one of her students, shows up unexpectedly one day after class. His beauty penetrates her broken heart, his passion for the arts renews her interest and his zest for life rekindles her spirit. The growing attraction she feels for him has her thinking taboo thoughts.

Reed's thought-provoking characters offer a eye-opening look into how love can bloom in the most unlikely of places, and the sensual love scenes are well done. (dl $5.20)
