Summary
Vivian is a repressed English professor who goes to Reno for a quickie divorce in 1959. She spends the weeks waiting for final divorce papers at a dumpy dude ranch. There she mets Cay, a beautiful young casino worker. The two develop a friendship that stirs desires in Vivian she cannot deny. Slowly their attraction deepens into bold sensuality as they develop a bond that renews their hearts--and breaks all the rules
