He slipped his hand under her dressing gown and gently rubbed her shoulders and the back of her neck. Then her spine and her little buttocks. The tension went out of her body and she faced him. ‘Switch off the table lamp,’ she said.

Mohan is a rich, cultured man from an old south Delhi family. When his wife leaves him, he must find a way to satisfy his manly desires. He writes a matrimonial ad—but scandalously, just for sex. Sarojini responds—a professor of literature, demure and pure, but equally desperate to slake her lust. Can Mohan convince her to leave her modesty behind, and let herself succumb to her desire for him? And will the lady professor give Mohan the satisfaction he craves?

All he wanted was someone for his bed, but Sarojini’s classy, sexy wit gives him more than he knew he wanted—a woman who understood him.

Khushwant Singh’s effortless prose finds release in this potent, sexy story.
