When successful podiatrist and foot surgeon Paul Archway finds his voluptuous new neighbor, Valerie Vaughn, bathing in his hot tub one evening, he has no clue how she and her dangerously volatile developer husband will alter his family, his reputation--even potentially, the city he calls home.
From the moment he takes her perfect wet foot into his hands, she becomes the accelerant that turns the manageable flame of his mid-life crisis into a firestorm that nearly consumes him and all the people around him--his talented wife who is determined to assert her self-identity, his independent teenage daughter dating a college boy two years her senior, his smoldering surgical resident struggling to maintain a strictly professional relationship and his most powerful patient and benefactor, a federal district court judge who must render one of the most important decisions of his career.
Archway unlocks Valerie's passion through her feet and she experiences sensations she's only brushed the surface of over years of pedicures and shoe-shopping.
Feet shape the story and define most of the characters--their explosive sexuality, athletic prowess, even physical well-being drive the novel's twists and turns. Their feet open the doors to unbelievable pleasure--as well as unimagined pain.
Throw in a shady $800 million real estate deal involving the local Indian nation's casino operations and the shocking discovery of a controversial historical document and you have all the elements of a what's-going-to-happen-next erotic caper with an unexpected climax.
Hidden agendas, who knows what, unexpected complications and suspicions about who's behind turns of events keep Archway--and you--guessing until the last page. Sex, swindlers and a surprise ending. This tale will arouse you, amuse you and curl your toes.
