In the erotic, USA Today-bestselling tour de force, The Lover, readers met not only brooding, passionate Michel des Anges, but his lifelong friend -- the mysterious Gabriel, a man with a past as dark as the London night. Now, renowned author Robin Schone explores one of her most talked-about characters in a novel that reveals the blackest secrets of a man's soul. . .and the explosive heart of a woman's desire.
Destitute and terrorized by a nameless pursuer, thirty-four-year-old Victoria Childers has only one thing of value left -- her innocence. Its price will buy her safety. But Gabriel, the dangerously beautiful man who purchases her, doesn't want her virginity -- he wants the man who stalks her. Trapped together in a house where every desire can be fulfilled, Victoria and Gabriel are plunged into a deadly game of passion and pursuit, where the greatest threat is carnal hunger and the only rule is survival.
