Cassandra Leigh has woken as if from a bad dream: forty-four, childless and twenty-plus years into an affair with a married man. Max assures her they just need a little more patience and for his wife to die but Cass is desperate for a baby and running out of time. Maybe Max is not the only man for her? There's her friend Jason - though he's perhaps a little too rugged, and there's something strange about the way his wife disappeared. Or there's Dante, the mysterious stranger she meets on a dark night in his haunted manor house
