Sensuous, yet stifled New York City photographer Erin Mitchell thinks going to South Africa on assignment will be the perfect getaway. But when a flash flood washes away Erin's vehicle and she is stranded at a luxury safari lodge, Erin's working vacation takes an interesting turn. She awakens from her near-drowning and meets her rescuer, Nicholas — hot and brilliant, successful and caring — not at all like her abusive husband. At Leopard Rock, in the steamy South African heat, Erin faces the toughest choices of her life. Nicholas is smart and he's 'no strings attached'. The question of whether to give in, or not, drowns Erin's senses as she struggles with two impossible goals: ignore the exquisite physical charms of her host, or conceal every last detail whenever her controlling husband calls. On the other hand, Nicholas faces impossible choices of his own, as his bon vivant playboy lifestyle may just possibly collide with feelings more powerful than lust.
