Publisher Description


On the eve of their wedding, Aiko discovers her girlfriend Reina has some second thoughts about marriage, life, and aging. Even after twenty years together, Reina still doesn’t know what she wants from her relationship – can Aiko remind her about the “Rouman”, or romance, that they’ve cultivated and shared over the years? It’s probably going to take all night.


For their first Valentine’s Day together, Aiko hopes her girlfriend Reina will finally woo her with a little romance. Instead their big date veers off in a strange direction when Reina decides it’s time to initiate Aiko into the wondrous world of “Mitsushin,” or “three hearts” as their foreign friend calls it. Will this inclusion of a third woman obliterate all the romance left, or will Aiko discover a new way to celebrate the love she has for Reina? 


As a belated birthday present, Aiko’s girlfriend Reina takes her to the largest lesbian nightclub in town. Rowdy, drunk women aren’t exactly on Aiko’s list of “great birthday gifts” however, until she discovers the club’s dirty little secret – it’s actually a “nanpakai,” or a place for picking up women for some quick, casual fun centered around exhibitionism!


After watching her girlfriend seduce a stranger at a nightclub, Reina finds herself in the same stranger’s hotel room only an hour later. 


Roped into teaching a “Lesbian Talk” seminar for the local lesbian populace, Reina is convinced it’s going to bomb – even though she is the most talented, experienced, and sexiest woman possible to do the job. Just as she’s getting used to the idea, however, her worst nightmare arrives: her wife, Aiko, coming to taunt her with everything she keeps beneath her clothing. 


The big day has finally arrived: after traveling across one ocean and spending half her life savings, Aiko is about to marry Reina, the woman she has loved for over twenty years. The dress is perfect, the December day sunny, and Reina actually showed up, but there’s one thing clawing at Aiko’s nerves like a rabid beast.


A large crowd of spectators await Reina and Aiko at the local cafe, where the “Couples’ Quiz Show” is going on that night. A Newlywed Game-style affair, Reina has only agreed to do it because she knows her wife really wants the prize: a romantic getaway for two. 


Basking on an Okinawan beach isn’t enough for Aiko, who thinks there should be more interesting things to do on her tropical getaway with girlfriend Reina. 


It’s been over a year since Reina and Aiko last attended a “yarikon,” or a key party hosted by their friends. Reina especially has looked forward to this evening, as it gives her the chance to meet new women for some extra-marital fun. However, fate finds ways to ruin her night by pairing her with one of the only women she swore she would never think of in that way! 


Aiko has never had many crushes in her life, but when she does crush, she crushes hard – like for Haruka, the woman who once stole spouse Reina’s heart for a night. Unable to explain her desires for the tomboy, Aiko nevertheless embraces the moment when she is paired with Haruka at a key party event.
