Based on the memoirs of Canadian author Delaine Moore, this Lifetime Special follows the story of Delaine Morris, a bored housewife who is shocked when her whole life is uprooted on the discovery of her husband's affair.

After making her marriage part of her identity and losing herself in the process, Delaine, encouraged by friends starts to re-discover what she wants in life. Including men.  Encouraged to try online dating, she starts chatting to a man online called 'The Duke', who lives far away. The Duke shocks Delaine with his ideas about sex and women and builds up Delaine's confidence. 

Soon Delaine is dating local men and really enjoying life once more. But one thing keeps playing on her mind, what would happen if she and 'The Duke' met?

The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom begins on Thursday, 9pm on Lifetime.
