*** some spoilers*** So it starts off somewhat interestingly; girl gets swept off her feet, even if she is very weak and somewhat unlikeable. John, the suitor, has a secret thats obvious, and Anna's friend Mimi, a journalist, wants to find out what it is, esp. after John & Anna marry. Then it gets weird, and frankly, given it's over 500 pages, there isn't a lot of sex or eroticism. There is some, and a sensual moment or two, but not anywhere close to what I expect from a book by Elyot. Not NEARLY enough. The plot takes a funky turn involving an alien trying to prevent himself getting captured and pretty much loses all sense of eroticism and sensuality and does a cruddy job of even being passable science fiction so it basically loses any redeeming quality it might have- and I love both good science fiction and hot erotica. And its too bad because the general idea, if you step back, isn't a bad one- alien being is in forced exile on earth to hide from who is hunting him. The thought that an alien creature might possess some sensual sway is also interesting. But in this book there's just not enough sensuality, it seems silly at various points and Anna isn't very likeable and then the POV sort of switches to Mimi but its uncomfortable and you're not sure who to root for. Disappointing.
