Tesla Martin is drifting pleasantly through life, slinging lattes at Morningstar Mocha, enjoying the ebb and flow of caffeine-starved customers, devoted to her cadre of regulars. But none of the bottomless-cup crowd compares with Meredith, a charismatic force of nature who can coax intimate tales from even the shyest of Morningstar's clientele.
Caught in Meredith's sensual, irresistible orbit, inexpressibly flattered by the siren's attention, Tesla shares long-buried chapters of her life, holding nothing back. Nothing Meredith proposes seems impossiblenot even Tesla sleeping with Meredith's husband, Charlie, while she looks on. After all, it's all in fun, isn't it?
In a heartbeat, vulnerable Tesla is swept into a spectacular love triangle. Together, gentle, grounded Charlie and sparkling, maddening Meredith are everything Tesla has ever needed, wanted, or dreamed of, even if no one else on earth understands. They're three against the world.
But soon one of the vertices begins pulling away until only two points remainand the space between them gapes with confusion, with grief and with possibility.
Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, yoga newbie, knitting aficionado, and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. She's older than she looks (really!) and younger than she feels (most of the time), and she loves to explore the journeys that take women through life in her stories.
Saranna DeWylde has always been fascinated by things better left in the dark. She wrote her first story after watching The Exorcist at a slumber party. Like all writers, Saranna has held a variety of jobs, from operations supervisor for an airline to call girl's assistant to corrections officer. But, like Hemingway said, "Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure, only death can stop it." So she traded in her cuffs for a full-time keyboard and lives in the Midwest with her very own Prince Charming.
"Hart plunges into the mainstream fiction genre with this haunting, devastating, heart-wrenching tale. She masterfully weaves every off-hand mention of a seemingly incidental detail, every potentially eyebrow-raising plot point together in service to her story and the resulting dramatic climax, which then becomes believable, thanks to Hart's skill. This story will stay with you long after you reach the last page."-Romantic Times Book Reviews on Precious and Fragile Things
"Megan Hart is easily one of the most talented voices I've encountered." -The Romance Reader
"This isn't like the previous books I've read from Ms. Hart and I've definitely learned to expect the unexpected from her.... I know this book will speak to others differently; it's that kind of read. For me it was dark, disturbing, difficult, uncomfortable, heartbreaking, and finally, redemptive and life affirming.... It's not easy to try and face those dark nooks and crannies in our hearts and minds we prefer to pretend don't exist." -Manic Readers
