In this exciting prequel to best-selling author Anne Stuart's House of Rohan series, when Kathleen Strong interviews for a job that offers a chance at proper employment, a mysterious group of aristocrats proposes a scandalous offer that she can't refuse.
Venice, 1740. Desperate, starving, Kathleen Strong makes her way to a job interview that promises a chance at proper employment... and maybe a bite to eat. Accused of "gross immorality", she's adrift after being dismissed from her governess position, despite being entirely innocent.
That innocence is precisely what a mysterious group of debauched aristocrats finds so alluring about Miss Strong. When they propose a scandalous offer that she can't refuse... she can't refuse. But if the darkly gallant Alistair Rohan, a gentleman involved in all manner of wicked deeds himself, has anything to say about it, Kathleen can escape her disrepute in another way.
Of course, the escape route looks very similar to the group's illicit proposition itself....

Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
It's too short! With those delicious characters, you don't want the story to end!
short, sweet, sexy, wicked..... yum!
The inception of the heavenly host.
And the shortness of the tale doesn't matter!
True fans of the series. I've found the series OK, but not as compelling as Stuart's other books.
Um. From dissipated jerk to noble suitor in record-breaking speed.
Cutting isn't the issue -- what's needed is addition. Like justification. Evolution of character.
I don't think this chapter (that's about how long it is) would be worth half the price.
