Dr. Nora Caine was shaken by the fervor and passion of the other girl's kiss. Precise and scientific on the outside, Nora was still a woman—passionate and longing to love and be loved. She thought of Kit, her husband, helpless in a hospital bed, and felt a pang of remorse and pain. Yet, here was Jill, a tempting young woman whose elfin beauty and sexuality were luring Nora away from her husband. And to complicate things further, there was Mack—big, strong, virile Mack who was Nora's stepbrother and Jill's lover. These four people were caught in their own private purgatory, struggling against overwhelming odds in their frenzied search for emotional happiness. Jill knew her relationship with Mack was a fraud… knew that he could never make her happy… would never enflame the same desires and passions she felt with women—with Nora. Would she have the courage to be true to herself, to leave him? And what of Nora? Would she risk her professional career and marriage to pursue desires she never knew she possessed?
