Ellis’s juicy thrilling debut whisks Sophie Henshaw a delightful naïf who’s eager to explore new worlds from her drab life in Manchester England into an erotic American adventure. She’s hired by Marnie and Edward Parker a rich reclusive power couple based out of New York to be the nanny to children she never actually meets. Sophie dives into the Parkers’ glamorous life with abandon. She immediately finds the dashing Edward irresistible and is shocked by her compelling attraction to eccentric artist Marnie. In late night conversations over gnocchi and daring dashes in magnificent sports cars each of the Parkers ropes unsuspecting Sophie into a breathtaking seduction. The novel is tightly paced with a generous dose of richly depicted sex scenes. Ellis deftly creates a scenario that allows readers to eagerly anticipate the next stage in the Parkers’ lusty scheme while Sophie charmingly stumbles through it capping the story with a delightful and innovative twist on the happily ever after ending. This is a blockbuster launch for an impressive newcomer. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
