In this romantic thriller where sex is used both as a weapon and a cure, with great lucidity Nathalie Guilbeault exposes the dangers of becoming entangled with a person possessing narcissistic and sociopathic traits. As her marriage unravels, Isabelle Duval meets a Nicaraguan man online. Silencing her own intuition, she falls into the arms of hope, weaving for herself a new reality, one that puts her life and that of her daughter’s at risk. 

Set primarily in New England, it is a tale of a woman’s struggle to seek stability where none can be found. It is the story of a woman’s blind quest to rationalize the need to give in, to stay, whatever the price, while offering a look into the struggle and desperation of one who has been preyed upon.

"This book was intense! I couldn’t put it down. Knowing that this was a true story got to me in my deep. A whole mix of emotions with some added eroticism made this book captivating and relatable. Very well written. Bravo for a first time author!" As reviewed by Dr. Laurie Betito, a clinical psychologist for over 30 years with a specialty in Sexual Wellness.
