Lily has always been insecure about her full-figured body. She doesn't consider herself to be desirable--until she spends one passionate evening with Travis, her best friend's handsome and incredibly sexy twin brother. Although he's treated her callously in the past, that evening they discover an undeniable and intense sexual desire for one another.

Things seem too good to be true--for the first time in her life, Lily feels beautiful, and she's having the time of her life with the man she's lusted after for years. But can she trust Travis not to break her heart?

Andre's vivid descriptions of her characters' physical and emotional relationship engage the senses from the start. Although it's difficult to believe that such an insecure woman can make such a sudden and complete transformation, there's an overall message of hope and empowerment. (Nov., 256 pp., $13.00)
