Description

"Love is both poison and cure, both knife and remedy."

Rosa's best friend, Catherine, is dead and she is sure Catherine’s betrothed, Marquis Guilleme is to blame. Mother says so. Mother says he has to pay with his life. Although, she knows by now Guilleme is no ordinary man. He is tainted. A monster. He cannot be killed by usual means. To seek the best revenge, she must find out all his secrets and destroy him. But will her own dark desires consume her or liberate her?

No matter.

Mother will tell her what to do.

Description

The marquis usually keeps to his mansion by himself, mysterious and elusive. Every so often he appears in the social scene with a new lovely young lover by his side, man or woman. Most romances end tragically, if not shockingly. Lovers leave him with burning hatred, are sometimes driven insane or even tried to murder the marquis himself. He is charismatic and charming but quite secretive. Nevertheless, the townspeople love him because of his benevolence and generosity. Beneath his mysterious persona, another layer of secrets enslave his mind. He is searching for something in every one he courts. But what is it?
