Synopsis:

One moment can change your life forever…

For Violet Lee, a chance encounter on a darkened street draws her into a world beyond her wildest imaginings, a timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth – of beautiful mansions and lavish parties – where a decadent group of friends live for pleasure alone. A place from which there is no escape…no matter how hard Violet tries.

Yet all the riches in the world can’t mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn.

Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds – but it’s a passion that comes at a price…

Series Reading Order:

Review:

‘The sexiest romance you’ll read this year’ is a big statement to make and I don’t think it did the book any good. While there was romance in the story, it is definitely not the sexiest book I have read, far from it.
The story line was intriguing and flowing enough to keep me wanting more.
I was a little disappointed that there were not more chapters written from the Kasper’s point of view. It is always interesting to see what the lead male character is thinking.
All in all, a very enjoyable read.
