Appalled to realize that she just spent the night—a glorious night to be sure—with a stranger, Annie quietly leaves, determined to forget it ever happened. But when he turns out to be Jack Joseph, the contractor working with Annie's newest client on a building she designed, she can't let go of the memory. Jack, who is married, can't forget either, and when the temptation proves too great, they give in, though they both know there's only one way this can end—or is there?
VERDICT Introspective and suffused with angst, this very British, very modern story with a New Age slant takes on the taboo topic of infidelity in a brave, cutting-edge romance. While not for everyone, this is a worthwhile read. Malpas (The Protector) lives in Northampton, England.
