Overview

"High octane passion" JG Reynolds

Jennifer came to Buenos Aires to dance tango. As a girl she'd skipped school and gone to dance class in London where she was picked to be in a world famous sexy dance group when she should have been taking exams, she just preferred touring with bands and romantic encounters with rich and famous men during the hedonistic days of disco, punk and New Romantics.

Years later, Jennifer who seems younger every year, still loves to dance and live an untethered roaming life. Expat living in Argentina, she finds emotional freedom from the constraints and expectations of normal life and in 2007, Buenos Aires is glamorous, undiscovered and very cheap.

The Argentinean men however are dark and broody, with passionate, all or nothing minds. Jennifer finds an erotic romance with younger man, Dario who is irresistibly drawn to her unusual independence but refuses to be tamed. She is already overpowered by him when she discovers he is hiding a secret life. When it all seems hopeless, there's always solace dancing in the powerful arms of a tanguero at the myriad tango halls.

The expat women rely on the comfort of their friendship as they try to understand the very foreign culture of being overpowered by difficult but sexy men. Jennifer's women friends are Meghan and Jamie, who call Dario her "delivery boy". Underlying the women's friendships is a fierce competition to find love, made more intense by the arrival of Amelia, who they rescue from peril in the Delta.

Betrayed by love, Jennifer tours around Argentina, meeting mountaineers in Patagonia, bikers at carnival and nightmares in Iguazu Falls. In Salta, high in the Andes mountains, she meets intense Vicente and surrenders to sexual romance and the joy and pain of losing control and sanity over a sexy man. Will she finally understand what men want in relationships?

"Completely hooked! The sex was raw and real. Your style is similar to Erica Jong." Shannon Houelette
"Oh my God - THE SEX. Hardly ever read sex described in all its agony like this." Sophie Radice
"A book I would ignore my husband for. Spicy and witty and at times a little naughty." Kim Jewell
"Sexier, more realistic and with many more shades of grey than fifty.' Isabel Lopez
