Professor Elizabeth Carlisle is an art critic and does a good job of exposing counterfeits. She's at an exhibit of erotic art where she catches the eye of a handsome Italian stranger. They are viewing a more private collection only to find that they've stayed past closing time and are now effectively trapped inside the museum for the night. Surrounded by so much eroticism, life immitates art and they succumb to the passion that had been building between them. The next morning, Giancarlo makes a confession.

I think if it had been longer or even a full length novel, I'd have more stars to give. Why was Elisabeth such a closed off woman? What made her decide to jump on the couch with a stranger? What made Giancarlo want to seduce her specifically? I've read novellas that give you quite a bit of character development or a stronger plot, so I do find it a shame that this was aptly titled with emphasis on the brief. For an erotica novella this was rather forgettable. ( )
