Journalist Lucy Miles returns home to her sleepy rural village to chase a potentially career changing story. But after being reunited with the boy who broke her heart, Lucy soon realises that its her own feelings that are under investigation.
Lucy Miles is resigned to covering stories for the local newspaper and sharing a flat with her hippy mother, until her first love reappears.

As does his invitation to rekindle a passion that will set alight her submissive fantasies and untie his dominant tastes.
But for how long can playing roles remain pretence before their games become an emotional connection?
