Summary

Nicky is a young and attractive Vietnamese woman with long black hair which she wears in an unusual style, and she is taller than many of her friends. Her father is unknown to her, although her mother told her that he was French. She is 28 and lives with her mother. Nicky has had very limited sexual experience, and that was not at all satisfactory. She works with a fashion house, but an an organiser, not a designer. She is invited to represent her company at an Embassy Reception, where she meets William who is widowed, but to her suddenly and strangely attractive. Much to her own surprise she allows herself to be undressed and seduced, and is amazed at her own sexual activity, response and even wantoness. William finds Nicky both attractive and seductive. Nicky’s first kiss is not passionate but given with warmth and promise, and this turns out to be the first of many. The story has a ‘happy ever after’ ending with marriage (which is a difficult and long drawn out process in Vietnam).
