Publisher's Summary

Belinda is the ultimate fantasy. A golden-haired object of desire, fresh and uninhibited. But to Jeremy Walker, a handsome and famous 44-year-old illustrator of children's books, Belinda is a forbidden passion. She's sweet 16, and the most seductive woman he's ever known. Bewitching, beguiling....

Abridged

Don’t bother. Anne Rice is to be read unabridged or not at all, and the narrator is the worst.
I never delete books but this one is definitely going. Big disappointment.

Prefer book over audio recording

I read the book years ago and wanted to try audible book...although I realize this is an abridged version it feels like big key sections of the book were taken out that showed the connection between the main characters. Couldn't concentrate on the narrator in the beginning with the background music ever so loud and it didn't sound clear and crisp...I'm listening to another book through audible and it sounds good. Disappointed :(

A Surprisingly Good Read

I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. I chose it for the author. This is a provocative & controversial work which many will find offensive. I read this straight through & was glad I did. It is intense, sensual, & sexual yet there are no explicitly erotic scenes. As far as category, it's kind of Forbidden Romance.
