Meet Sally - well-mannered English rose of twenty-five. A primary school teacher from Highgate, Sally's decided to re-invent herself as a femme fatale and all-around sex-goddess. Goodbye Laura Ashley; au revoir M&S undies; hello Erica Jong.
Meet Richard - six foot two and a bit, perfectly carved and gorgeously chiselled. Thirty-five-year-old architect from Notting Hill, confirmed bachelor and the unknowing target of Sally's masterplan. She's determined to be the one great erotic heroine of his life. He's going to be her dream affair - no strings, no scone-baking. Just sex and sensuality. Until, that is, a New Year masked ball unmasks more than was intended. Until Richard, unwittingly, threatens all that Sally holds dear. From London Zoo to the Pompidou, from tiramisu to I love you, join Sally and Richard on their roller-coaster ride of self-discovery, self-denial, seduction and spots (proving Sally can't change hers) in this fabulous, fresh and funny first novel.(20010730)
