From the author of the bestsellers The Bride Stripped Bare and With My Body, a new twist on a classic tale of passion.
Set in Notting Hill, this modern day version of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', sees a banker's wife awaken to the erotic possibilities of her life.
It begins by describing with scorching honesty and delicious cheekiness a couple in the thick of marriage - people who still fancy each other rotten, and how they find a way of keeping the sex aflame amid the demands of work/family/life.
And yet this wife, safe within her marriage, is bursting with unfulfilled desire. Unfulfilled, that is, until the communal gardener enters, and their affair accelerates to its tense, shuddering conclusion.
