AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Living the glamorous expat life on the French Riviera, Australian journalist Coco's got it all - except for romance. So when she meets dashing American Jack Villeneuve, she thinks she's hit the jackpot. He's handsome, debonair, attentive, great in bed and, best of all, smitten with her. Before long she is head over heels in love with him and a whirlwind courtship turns into a fairytale wedding and honeymoon. She can hardly believe her luck.

'But then one night, Jack suggests they 'try something new', and ever so gradually Coco meets a side of Jack that is totally unexpected and quite disturbing. As she learns more about his world of pain and punishment, she comes to question not only his motives, but their very marriage.

'A compelling and shocking journey into the secrets of a marriage and the heart of a woman who discovers that love can't shelter you from the truth.' (Publisher's blurb)
