James Stoker a young Cambridge professor/geologist/explorer, falls in love with an older more experienced woman, a soiled dove, if you will. She is at first put off by his youth but he's such a handsome, thoroughly male, earnest and open fellow she just can't resist for long. James and Coco fall in love but have to hide their relationship as Coco's reputation could ruin James' career. There is treachery afoot as one of her former, lovers, from long ago, frames James, out of jealousy, for crimes he didn't commit. Of course everything comes aright in the end though it seems there is no way that can happen. The protagonist in the book is truly despicable and I found myself wanting to throttle the chap. The language in the book seems typical of the era. I find this makes a book more believable. There are some very steamy love scenes so if you're a prude this book is not for you. I have ready many, many romance books in my 63 years and I know a good book when I see one. Judith Ivory is genius. I loved "The Proposition" which, I highly recommend. I think would also be a great movie. I wouldn't say that about many books I've come across.
