Short Synopsis
New York Times bestselling author Anne Stuart masterfully weaves an irresistible tale of lust and privilege in decadent times.

Full Synopsis
Few outsiders will ever witness the dark misdeeds of the Heavenly Host. And among this secret society, where exiled Georgian aristocrats gather to indulge their carnal desires, fewer still can match the insatiable appetite of their chief provocateur, the mysterious Viscount Rohan.

Pursuit of physical pleasure is both his preferred pastime and his most pressing urge, until he encounters the fascination of a woman who won't be swayed. And while his dark seduction appalls the pure and impoverished Elinor Harriman, she finds herself intrigued...and secretly drawn to the man behind the desire.

"Audie Award winner Susan Ericksen turns in an appealing performance, interpreting Rohan's bored demeanor with a lazy drawl and quickening the pace to show his anxiety when he rushes to save Elinor from a murderous villain." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"Witty, inventive, dark and sexy---a wild adventure for the mind...and the heart." ---Susan Wiggs

"Stuart's dark tale of aristocratic decadence and licentiousness among British expats in mid-18th-century Paris will chill the naive and singe the pages---and this is just the first in a trilogy." ---Library Journal

"[A] dark, intense, and sometimes unsettling historical romance." ---Publishers Weekly
