Gregory belongs to two worlds, but is not fully accepted in either. He’s more comfortable with his Polynesian roots, and those people are more receptive to him. He is the son of a famous man and is impressive in his own right as a naturalist. For seven years he’s sailed the globe recording and documenting his travels and finds. He finds himself in London and is looking for companionship. What he finds is more.
Nat and Alecia are married. The start of their marriage was a train wreck. Married very young they hurt one another for years until a common lover showed them how to be a loving couple. Once they accepted their proclivities they continue their erotic games, but always remain together and committed.
The attraction for one another is immediate and the three spend a glorious weekend together. What was supposed to be a lark turns into more, and the jealousy and strict beliefs of others intrude on their newfound happiness with one another.
Nat and Alecia use Gregory in a horrible manner to protect themselves and in a way, Gregory was expecting it. He doesn’t hold it against them, and as things progress through blackmail and negative familial opinions, we journey with them through their emotional trials and tribulations. The heart wants what it wants, and some emotions are too strong to be suppressed. Nor should they be. A well done emotional and erotic read that leaves a mark in your memory.
