Chinese-Canadian journalist Jenny Yuen is living two separate lives: the life that her strict Chinese family sees and approves of and the one that reveals her sexual self.

Firefighter Scott Jackman doesn't live two separate lives, but his German parents wish he lived an entirely different one altogether -- working on the family farm. Something more than sparks ignite when Jenny and Scott hook up to fulfill each other's every fantasy.

From the slow and sensual to the hot and hard -- even touching on the wild and weird -- Lyons turns common fantasies into excellent and satisfying reading. Her book is wildly passionate and graphic -- without being obscene. But the flawlessness of every love scene and the characters' endless resources for fulfilling the fantasies are too perfect.
