She is a trial attorney, and he is a mystery that enters her life through the anonymity of a chat room. That first encounter is safe—but she wants more. Face to face at last, the spark between them quickly burns into a fire of obsession.
She had thought that she was no longer capable of such passion, but when he promises her unending pleasure, she can’t resist. He is an expert lover, and she is his ravenous student.
She finds comfort in the practice of law, in living by the clock. When she is with him, however, she surrenders to the uncharted waters of his control. He finds comfort and his center in the beach and the ocean, in the ebb and tide of the world. She is afraid of losing her sense of self; he is afraid of losing his freedom. His fear of commitment confuses her, and her need for order offends him.
Can they find love when the demons of their past will do anything to keep them there?
