AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Pragmatic and world-weary, Ailsa Trewen has confronted several mistresses over the course of her marriage to the philandering Sid. But her plans for an animal sanctuary and a quiet future take an unexpected turn when Sid's death in the arms of his latest lover leaves her a wealthy widow and she invests in a thriving hotel. Not just any hotel, but Hotel D'Amour, a luxorious retreat for the businessman and the 'other woman'....Over gourmet dinners at her 'mistresses only' nights, her clients shed their inhibitions and share their experiences, telling tales of lust, envy and revenge as they explore the agonies, ecstasies (and ironies) of Adultery.' Back cover.
