In the same week that Claire receives a long dreamt-of commission to write her opera, she learns she is dying. To enable her to complete the work in the shore time she has left, Claire makes the most drastic decision of her life. She is sure that no matter what happens, she won't have to live with the consequences. He is a successful businessman, confident, powerful - and enigmatic. He is not in the habit of entering contracts lightly, so when he does negotiate an arrangement with Claire, he demands that she abide by its terms, however difficult this may seem. But then Claire has nothing to lose...Or does she? Outrageous and startling, Love in Shades of Grey is an erotic tale of two people bound together in ways neither of them could have imagined.
