Genre: Historical Romance, France
The House of Rohan series begins with a scintillating, titillating, wickedly dark and sensual tale as Stuart brilliantly draws you in like a black widow spider. Intelligent characters swirl around a beautifully rendered, complex plot. The erotic overtones — one masterful scene after another — and dark hero simply add to the delicious story that captures heart and soul.
In an attempt to prevent her mother from gambling away their meager funds, Elinor Harrington goes to a party hosted by Viscount Francis Rohan. As the “heavenly host” and chief provocateur, Rohan provides his guests with opportunities to indulge in every level of vice. Innocents like Elinor have no place in his inferno. Rohan is shocked by his immediate physical reaction to Elinor and decides to toy with the naïve “poppet.” But his game backfires when he is the one caught in her sweet web.
Elinor doesn’t know what to make of the overtly sensual, magnetic Rohan who offers her pleasure and protection. When she’s suddenly the target of unexplained accidents, he begins searching his soul — yes, he has one — to uncover his true desire. (MIRA, Aug., 420 pp., $7.99)
