Claire’s husband is a philandering ‘sexologist’ who believes love and sex can’t co-exist. But it breaks her heart when he dies and leaves her a young widow.

As she braces herself for her new life alone, Claire can’t help but wonder if her late-lamented was right all along. After getting through the pain of his passing, she’s returning to the battlefield of bad dates. So when she’s asked to write the biography of lothario movie star Jack Huxley, she’s surprised when he doesn’t live up to his sleazy reputation. Not only is he more than meets the eye, but he’s got his eye on her. Claire’s determined to banish her husband’s ghosts and prove him wrong. But having found her first Mr Right, does she deserve a second?

A unique, extraordinarily perceptive and darkly comic novel about widows, sex and love – in that order.
