GETTING SOME OF HER OWN
Even the more than a little suggestive title is a hook. Sexual tension sustains
the story, and Forster creates such believable characters -- who deal with circumstances that imperil their dreams for true happiness -- that it's easy to reach beyond the pages and find nonfiction replicas. You'll eagerly keep reading to learn how the characters' lives intersect and will sigh with pure satisfaction when it ends.
Their love for children keeps bringing them together and is also what keeps them apart. When Lucas demands to know why Susan seduced him, her answer will determine the course of their future. (Dafina, Aug., 304 pp., $14.00)
