Eden Sinclair is director of the exclusive Galerie Raton in Atlanta's prestigious mid-town district. As summer temparatures soar she finds it increasingly difficult to adhere to her self-imposed celibacy and spends a lot of time fantasising about the attractive young artists who pass through the gallery.
Among them is Michael MacKenzie, the flame-haired sculpture whose sexy masculinity sets her pulse racing. Almost delirious with unrequited passion, Eden sets out to seduce him - despite her professional promise never to become involved with her clients. Things become even more charged when she finds out gallery owner Alexander is having an affair with her best friend. In downtown Atlanta it's going to be a summer of saucy suprises and steamy encounters.
