"Chaz and Muriel Lambent. No one can resist their startling beauty and seductive charm. No one can refuse an invitation to their fabulously orgiastic parties. No one can see them without wanting to possess one or the other or both. Certainly not Peter Keith, a young man whom they target for conquest. From the moment he spies Chaz in the upscale condo complex of Las Villas del Sol slowly and deliciously hosing himself down in the hot California sun, Peter is hooked, body and soul." "Extending the terrain of such masterpieces of psychosexual subjugation as Damage and The Story of O to the lotus land of California south of L.A., Fearful Symmetry breaks new ground in bold erotic exploration and intense human revelation. Its youthful protagonist and narrator is consumed by a passion he has never known before and inflamed by the rawness of the sex he has first with one, then with the other of the perversely perfect couple whose plans for him he can neither imagine nor defeat. Even as he senses that sex in every form is only part of what the Lambents want from him, he cannot break free of their sensual spell and the growing hold they have upon his psyche. He is wed to their desires as inextricably as they are wed to each other, as both his bondage and their marriage suspensefully move toward a climactic moment of cruel truth and decision."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
