Desdemona, a pianist in the Austin life-music scene, is channel-surfing when she stumbles upon the program Marriage Exposure. The trashy television show gets people to spill all the secrets of their sex lives, and Desdemona’s ex-boyfriend just happens to be a guest. To her shock and horror, Desdemona’s ex announces on national television that he dumped her because she never got the big O. “She faked…,” he says. Every single time.

Her life is wrecked! If her friends, family and colleagues haven’t seen the interview yet, they will.

How do you survive a scandal like this? How did he know she faked? And why is it that in the bedroom, Desdemona never, ever gets lucky?

The lovable, creative and quirky heroine tackles these challenges. As Desdemona tries to run damage control on her reputation, she begins to explore her sexuality. Along the way, she will get a second chance at genuine love.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I loved this book! I was impressed with the level of writing. The book contained lots of humor as well as angst. Some tears were shed when Hunter continued to believe that Desdemona had committed a crime during the tumultuous time of his dad’s death. I wasn’t sure how this book would end, but glad there was n HEA.


I found this a delightful read. As the description stated, there were plenty of funny moments, but there were also sweet ones, sexy ones, and downright heartbreaking ones. Perfect for a good romance!


An exceptional story that is a perfect blend of passion, humor and surprising suspense. The blurb I read about the book hooked me and got me to read a genre I don’t read. I’m glad I gave the story a chance. I was captivated immediately, the the author’s prose, character development and heart-wrenching dialogue were absolutely mesmerizing.


Desdemona will remind you of yourself or your best girlfriend. I was immediately drawn to the character and could not put to book down until I found out what happened to her. I hope to see more from this author!


OMgoodness if you love fun, quirky heroines this romantic tale of woes is the book for you. I laughed, gasped and could not put this one down seeing how it would resolve in the end – and if our fearless heroine who was facing down her own ruined reputation and faults would get the happy resolution she sought. Truly one of the most unique and well written romantic comedies I have read in a long time.
