“What a beautiful written romance! The author has done a marvelous job of writing something poignant, tasteful, erotic, thrilling, and magical all at once. The story of Katherine studying music and entering into a torrid relationship with her older married professor (though it doesn’t last) and eventually finding Daniel, is a whirlwind. The writing is clear and lush. Its like Julia Butler were composing with words, or painting with letters. The story was at times dark, mysterious, but always laced with a threat of hope throughout. I loved this story. What a work of art!”- Jamie
