I've been working on the wording of a cover blurb for my new book.  Does this sound like a good teaser?
“I am no Rake,” protests the anonymous English gentleman whose two hundred year-old journal falls into the hands of the prominent Los Angeles-based figure painter and avid blogger, David Soames…
 … who is skeptical of the author’s protestation.  No Rake?  Blog and journal soon begin to mirror each other in an exchange across the centuries, as a potboiler that romps exuberantly through 18th century Georgian boudoirs provokes the intimate memories and reflections of a 21st century man.
The more things change, it seems, the more they stay the same.   At least when it comes to men and sex.  The Pilgrim’s Staff becomes an explicit, unabashed reflection on the nature of masculine sexuality…

What do you think?  Does it catch the serious intention beneath the explicit erotic action?  Comments welcomed.
