RT Rating

Thomas has a masterful gift. The dialogue is so vibrant the characters come alive on every page, and the plot unfolds seamlessly. This is a phenomenal testament to the idea that there's nothing new under the sun.

Jana is a virgin when she marries at 24. Her 36-year-old husband, Lawrence, a handsome attorney, believes her religious upbringing stifles her sensuality, so she submits to her husband's edict that she dress sexy. But when his demands become more sinister, Jana must choose whether to continue to be Lawrence's ideal wife -- or herself. (POCKET, Oct., 288 pp., $14.00)
