Think hot, steamy nights, brilliant sunny days, fine white sand and tranquil ocean waves -- this is the setting for Conn's most recent novel. At first glance, the plot seems a bit implausible, but the setting is so beautiful and the characters so likable that it's easy to lose yourself in this sensual fantasy.
At first, Michael is angry, but soon the peace of the island and the ministrations of Delphine help him let go of the past. As Michael and Delphine draw closer, he begins to envision her in his life permanently. But Delphine loves Michael and will never be satisfied to be just his mistress. (Leisure, Jan., 336 pp., $6.99)
