I always end up reading the raciest romance novels on the recommendation of my patrons. Bertrice Small is no exception and I rank this title as one of her steamiest. Nora has been the ultimate housewife and mother for years when her loser husband leaves her for a younger woman. He strips her of everything and is determined to leave her destitute and homeless. Nora is devastated though not surprised by his behavior and struggles to find her independence when her friends turn her on The Channel-a cable channel she can request from the local cable company that wisks her away to her wildest fantasies come to life.
Fans of Bertrice Small may be unsettled by this contemporary romance and the depth of character development and historical setting is lacking. The tough topic of divorce and betrayal is juxtaposed with the freeness of sexual abandon. 2005, 320 pages.
