A provocative, romantic story of desire, submission and love: the second book in the Seasons series by the author of the After Dark trilogy. Flora Hammond is trying to make her dream of being an actress come true by studying her craft in Paris. But she cannot escape her privileged background and the paranoia of her wealthy father who is obsessive about his daughters' safety. The situation is not helped by the fact that Flora's older sister, Freya, has just run off with her bodyguard. Drawn into the family scandal, Flora tries to make peace between the warring factions. In the meantime, her path crosses with that of a mysterious businessman, Andrei Dubrovski, and there is an instant attraction between them. Even though Flora is warned off getting involved with him, she doesn't think she can resist. Is Freya right when she claims that their father's girlfriend Estella is engaged in a campaign against the sisters? And where has Freya disappeared to? Does Estella have the power to split the family apart, even to the point of breaking the bond between Flora and her twin sister, Summer? As Flora's obsession with Andrei grows, it's clear that where passion is concerned, the heart has its reasons . . .
