A Greek myth's curse involving two young lovers unfolds in sensual Renaissance Italy.
It is the dawn of the Italian Renaissance. A handful of women painters and sculptors emerge from the male-dominated middle ages to stand out among the crowd. A promising young painter, Gia Vessa, has just moved to Rome after the death of her father and immediately catches the eye of a handsome, wealthy man who seeks to become her benefactor. But what else will the sensually dark man want from her that she'd be more than willing to give?
Handsome as the Devil himself, the affluent art collector, Pietro Scarabassi has a secret. For thousands of years his spirit has waited to find the soul of Ciri, the young woman who gave away what he felt was rightfully his—her virtue—to some unworthy whelp. Now that he has finally found her manifested into the human form of Gia Vessa, Pietro will stop at nothing to destroy her and her lover.
Trapped inside a stone pillar that was once part of a Grecian temple of Venus, Zander has witnessed lovers worship each other and the goddess for centuries as he waited to be freed. Finally the day has come and he is able to use the few supernatural gifts the gods have bestowed upon him, but he must determine who houses the soul of his lover, Ciri. Once he finds her, he must foil the plans of their enemy, slay the demigod in human form and end the curse forever.
