Thalia's life is perfect. She has her dream house on the edge of Lake Cumberland in Nancy, Kentucky. She has a thriving sex therapy practice. Her sister has just moved nearby and is running the daily business of her practice.
She has a tight group of friends who keep her entertained and honest and a seemingly endless supply of ladies to meet her more basic human needs. Thalia has no regrets she's without a life partner.
Or does she?
A rough break-up five years ago left Thalia's heart in pieces. Thanks to friends and family her heart healed and she was able to find peace and happiness again. But not without scars that have left her unwilling to be vulnerable and exposed again.
When Amara walks into Thalia's practice seeking help for her friend, something ancient and terrifying stirs inside her.
Will Thalia be able to keep their interaction professional or will the allure of "one who will be forever beautiful," as her name suggests, be too much for Thalia and her fragile heart to resist?
I belong to an amazing group on Facebook, a gathering of my people, lesbians who love to read and write lesbian fiction. We get into some pretty crazy discussions from time to time.
One of the members wrote a blog post where she challenged those of us so inclined to write a story which incorporates all of the proper clinical names for the various parts of the female genitalia. I accepted the challenge. And here is my contribution to the fine literature unleashed on the unsuspecting members of this innocent lot.
This story takes us back into Thalia’s college undergraduate days where’s she’s feeling the stress of her impending orals, the last hurdle to clear before she begins work on her MDiv in Pastoral Counseling.
Will she pass her orals or will her crush on Ms. Hanson destroy her dreams?
