For Toni Amahle, life couldn’t get any better. At the very end of her final year in university at Edinburgh, she’s just submitted her final dissertation. She already has a job lined up in a prestigious London firm. No one in the small Scottish village she grew up in would have thought that the mixed-race child of a single mother would ever rise so far but she has.
For the very first time in her life, she’s going to be her own person.
She’s exploited every opportunity that has presented itself.
She is poised to explode into the world.
Until she gets an odd email requiring her to meet the head of her academic faculty. At a city centre hotel. In the evening. On a Saturday.
But why should she worry? Everything’s fine. It must be.
Professor David Charles is in the middle of a midlife crisis. Cuckolded and abandoned, his life has become mere existence, a sad penance served in the hours between sunset and sunrise. Until the fateful morning when he first saw her, crossing the long grass of The Meadows, her braids bright in the sun, her laughter as carefree as he was careworn.
Something shifts in his horizon, an imperceptible tilt that sends him careening down a path of dark obsession and unquenchable desire.
When a bad decision places Toni’s future in his hands, there is no going back.
It is all Toni fears. And all he desires.
To escape the destruction of all she has in front of her, Toni must play her part in their bargain, bound at dusk to be free at dawn.
In the space of a single night, their lives are forever transformed in ways neither could ever have foreseen.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?

This book is informed (in part) by his own experiences. He prefers to let readers try to figure out which bits.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Both main characters are drawn from people the author has known in his professional working life. It wasn't too much of a stretch to imagine them in more constrained circumstances, to wonder about how they might behave, what their secret desires might be and what price they would be willing to pay for gain.
She was trembling ever so slightly now, holding herself tighter, her limbs pressed in.
He went on, each word savoured, spoken as if each syllable were a tasting of salty slivers. "I warn her now, though. I will want every bit of her. Her lips. Her tongue. Her skin. Her wetness. Her taste. Her smell. Her pain. Her pleasure. All of her. Without condition. Exactly how. And when I say. Until dawn. Does she agree?"
It was as if his claiming her with words had broken the spell. The tremors vanished, mist now under sun, in their place a rising heat, of hot earth, a churning, living thing. She breathed in once, twice, heard the ricochet of a raindrop, the hiss of a smoking wing.
Her reply was as soft as the wind, a formless thing forming.
"What?" He was on his feet. "What did you say?"
She raised her face to him, let her arms drop, looked him in the eye.
"Yes," she replied. "She says yes."
