In the calm of a public library, Sophie writes stories about daring sexual encounters in exotic places. Her characters are passionate and her language is erotic, but she does not write from experience. That is, until she meets Eddie. A dealer in rare and perfect jewels, he is dangerously seductive, both in business and in pleasure. He is also engaged to be married. Nothing ever seems to go wrong for Eddie. Until he meets Sophie, his perfect woman. But Sophie has a secret: she is not perfect.
