Description from the publisher:
When Roy Girard went looking for Victor Varrano, he never expected a woman to answer the door. He soon discovers that Victor is now Venetia. Roy's startled, but even more surprised by his attraction to her. As they spend time together, he doesn't want to let her go. But she's sure to dump him when she learns his secret.

Venetia's falling hard and fast for Roy. But when she learns that his brother was the bully who tormented her in high school, she's shattered. She can't wrap her head around the fact that the man who made such amazing love to her could so completely betray her trust.


This is a stand-alone, erotic, transgender romance .

I completely enjoyed this unusual love story.  I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to those who need a little push to understand a GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender, or questioning) person in their life.

Nona Raines provides a sensitive compassionate – hot – story that leaves no doubt about the struggle and the triumph that can be found in living an alternate lifestyle.  An intelligent reader could also push the lines of this reading to understand that it goes beyond lifestyle – why does anyone need to be defined by the boxes in which they are categorized? (male/female, rich/poor, black/white/latino/…)  I say we celebrate love and happiness wherever it may be found!

This is the first book I have read from Nona Raines.  It may be a short story, but it is well thought out, beautifully constructed, and expertly delivered.  I truly would love to read more from her.
