The acclaimed author of The Rules of Magic presents a “sexually charged...almost hypnotic”(Publishers Weekly) novel about men, women, romance, and real life.

When Teresa was a little girl, she went to sleep with dreams in her head—dreams of dark-eyed, fearless heroes on white horses who would sweep her away. Then men her mother told her about were a special breed, and someday, Teresa vowed, she would fins one of her own. But now, as the adult Teresa negotiates life and love, she begins to understand that fairy tales don't always come true—and that passion isn't always the stuff of dreams...
