Summary

France, 1866

A reckless infatuation nearly ruined Lady Alice Cathcart-Ross in her youth, but from the moment she spies Elijah Philemon Keating scaling a rock face without a rope in sight, the man awakens her long-buried desire. Alice has come to the high Alps in search of a mountaineer, and in Elijah she finds the guide of her dreams.

Though Elijah is known as one of the greatest explorers of the age, a tragic accident has destroyed his taste for adventure and society. Elijah can't deny his attraction to Alice, but he resolves to avoid the entanglement that could accompany it. He promises Alice one week in the Alps, and no more.

Alice agrees, valuing her independence above all else. But as the heights they climb by day are overshadowed by the summits of passion they reach at night, these vows become harder and harder to keep...

So good!

I really enjoyed this book. The narration was done really well and the story was not your conventional historical romance. Great mix of actually storyline and pretty hot sex scenes.

Unconventional people

A short story of unconventional people for their time, a mountain climber and an artist. A hike through the mountains in Switzerland. Lots of sex.

Surprisingly well written

Never imagined that I would be reminded of Patrick Leigh Fermor's famous memoir while reading a book I picked for its erotic content.
