Listing Detail Tabs

Melissa Lamb is a romantic beauty, in the grip of an obsession. In the eyes of her practical cousin Ernestine, Melissa's determination to restore her derelict family mansion is just a harmless fantasy. Melissa, however, is anything but harmless. This is an obsession that knows no boundaries, and even those she loves most cannot be allowed to stand in her way.

At Oxford, Melissa and Ernestine form the core of the Wild Young Bohemians, a dining club for the beautiful and ambitious. Three men make up Melissa's court: Frank Darcy, a handsome American Rhodes scholar, high on English romance; Will Ivery, decent and kindly heir to a huge fortune; Giles Ross, charasmatic drug-dealer to the aristocracy.

Their golden circle is invaded by a revengeful stranger from the underclass, destined to bring the Wild Young Bohemians unimaginable sorrow and transformation. But he is only the catalyst. The evil is already there, the canker at the heart of the rose, turning dreams to dust and hopes to ashes.

Melissa's spectacular Victorian ruin holds a secret that has slept for a hundred years; a Gothic legacy of lust, greed and death. Before the game is played out, some of the Wild Young Bohemians will be damned, some saved. All will be changed for ever.
