"Kim Darien is the pen name of the San Francisco woman who spends her days as a translator in the busy offices of that city's overseas trade center and her evenings composing novels at the typewriter in her home on the city's outskirts. She finds conditional relaxation as a sports car enthusiast." - from a page inside the book.

"Kim Darien (pseudonym of Hedi Bried)" - from another bookseller.

"She teased him with her tongue... She tortured him with her eyes... She taunted him with her body... Until he committed the one intolerable act she could not anticipate - and whose consequences neither of them could foresee." - from a blurb on the back cover.
