Sexy young graphic designer Damian Bryant has it all – intelligence, wit, a flare for fun, and a successful business he runs entirely on his own. Katalina Avery, an ambitious and fiercely independent graduate student, finds everything about Damian irresistible from the moment she meets him on a Philadelphia bus. Yet she knows it’s wrong to date him.
At heart Katalina is a “good” girl, molded by her conservative rural upbringing, and she approaches romance and sex with cautious reserve. But there’s something about Damian’s authoritative ways and strange delight in being called “sir” that tempts her to break what she believes are unbreakable rules.
As Damian draws her into an increasingly passionate and erotic relationship, she’s tortured by the question of how a modern woman could fall for such a controlling, sexually aggressive man. Friends, family, and jealous rivals complicate the hidden feelings that claw at her heart until they nearly destroy everything she and Damian have. It is then that she must consider whether “right” and “wrong” might be blurry concepts that every couple, including her and Damian, must define for themselves; if she doesn't, she'll risk losing the greatest love she’s ever known.
