In 1995, client Raymond Brent falls in love at first sight with Maria Cezaro, a beautiful eighteen-year-old prostitute, who works in her mother Madame Colette’s bordello in Spanish Harlem. The forty-year-old wealthy furrier takes a fostering role in Maria’s life, in the hope of purifying her and teaching her the meaning of love. He offers Maria the position of companion for his dying wife in his opulent Sands Point estate on Long Island, when in truth — Ray is grooming Maria as his future wife — aware his wife Elizabeth will soon be dead.
In the meantime, Ray frequents the bordello in a twisted morality where he abstains from intimacy with Maria in order to win her heart and trust. Does Maria surrender to Ray’s seduction? Or will Elizabeth’s agenda of persuading Maria to honor her memory once she is gone influence her young companion’s destiny?
Love. Seduction. Money. Destiny.
Discover what happens when a morally twisted plan clashes with one driven by virtue in Fleshpot Novella: Book One.
