Married to a Wade, a rancher in the Flint Hills of Kansas, Alena has led a repressed life. When she attempts to seduce her husband with techniques she's learned at the site, he's aghast. She has nothing in common with her husband, especially sexually, and realizes she never has. Deciding she has nothing to lose, she leaves Wade and enters graduate school at The University of Kansas, where she encounters a professor who has more to teach her than just academics. And that's only the beginning, as Alena fulfills a late-life sexual awakening that opens her mind and heart to a whole new world of possibilities.
