Her name was Karen Yates. She was the sort of woman every man dreams about and every woman hates and fears. Her voluptuous body was an invitation to one thing alone. Her eyes told you she had been and done everything and was willing to start all over again with you. But perhaps the oddest thing of all about Karen was that she was married to a hell of a nice guy named Willard.
His name was Tom Redman. He was clever and gifted and reckless. he was handsome, strong and virile. His married friends would laugh and promise to protect him from their wives. But perhaps the oddest thing of all about Tom was that he was married to a quiet, solemn girl named Amelia.
