A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last only minutes, but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable...until she meets Johnny Dellasandro. The reclusive painter gained notoriety in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body has achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind--she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today Johnny shuns the spotlight and Emm in particular...until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep. In that moment she's transported back thirty years, crashing a party at Johnny's place in his wild-man heyday--the night is a blur of flesh and heat that lingers on her skin long after she's woken to the present. It happens again and again, each time-slip another mind-blowing orgy, and soon Emm can't stop, though every episode leaves her weaker and weaker. She's frightened by what's happening to her, but she's even more terrified of losing this portal to the Johnny she wants so badly. The one who wants her, too, and takes her--every chance he gets.
