HerMoreMary and Bill Gulland are concerned when their beloved daughter, Jillian, surprises them with the news that she intends to marry a man she has known for only a few months. Just a year out of college, Jillian has a good job and a bright future. Her parents think she should get a little more life experience before settling into married life, but she is determined to have her way. They finally meet the young man in Chattanooga at the pre-wedding celebration and have to admit, he is handsome, successful, polished—all the qualities Jill has described to them. Their daughter is obviously deeply in love with Chad and he seems devoted to her, attentive and generous in every way.At a dinner party the first night, Chad leads Mary to the dance floor for a customary courtesy dance and smoothly steers her away from the crowd to a dark corner. Mary, her knees already weak with sudden desire for her daughter’s fiancée, is helpless against the lust that sweeps over her at the slightest contact. It’s not just that he’s a good-looking, sexy young man—there’s a lascivious quality to the tone of his voice, the touch of his skin on her, the steel-rod erection pressing against her belly as they dance. Mary feels powerless to resist and is ashamed of herself for her wanton lust. Mary knows she doesn’t get as much sex from her husband as she needs and wishes he paid less attention to his construction business and more attention to her. But that’s not a good excuse for her lewd thoughts. She is relieved when the wedding is over and she can go back to her sedate life with her husband of twenty-three years.Now Jillian and Chad are coming to join them at their beach condo on St. Simons Island. The sparks begin to fly for Mary as soon as Chad arrives—she knows it’s going to be a long, rough week of fighting temptation and Chad’s constant advances. The next morning, Jill goes out with a girlfriend and Bill has a golf game. Mary is trapped alone with Chad—where will it lead?
