Talbot Bingham is a renowned architectural genius who, with his formidable wife, Priscilla, creates an architectural community. When he dies unexpectedly in the middle of their tenth wedding anniversary celebration, the devastated Priscilla is left keeper of the flame of Talbot’s genius. Going through her husband’s archives, she comes unexpectedly upon a pile of neatly tied letters, and the shocking secret of her husband’s intimate life—a discovery that shatters the foundation of her soul and spirit. The reader is left to decide if the other woman represents another facet of Priscilla, or if Priscilla her-self has invented the other woman who completed the world her husband so recently inhabited? 

I don’t read Erotica very much but I wanted to try it. I thought it was a pretty good read. It was definitely erotic but the story itself was interesting too. It was interesting because the ending isn’t definite, you can interpret it a few different ways.

At only 160 pages, it’s a fairly quick read, which personally I prefer when it comes to this genre. Now I don’t want to get into it too much as there are children who read this blog but let’s just say that if you want light erotica, this is the wrong book. It’s very explicit and covers all different kinds of sex. Let’s just put it that way.
