She expects it to be just a few fun dates in some fancy bars but finds herself propelled into a world of Prada shopping trips, fine dining, first-class travel and fascinating, powerful men.
Helen’s soul-searching dating adventures take her to New York, Malaysia, highbrow sex parties, skiing in top resorts and London’s finest hotels. When one of her dates alludes to a monthly allowance, she is shocked, but how long will her resistance to the idea last?
