The first book in the house of Rohan. There is a prequel called The Wicked House of Rohan that gives you an idea of what the Heavenly Hosts are.

Francis Rohan heads up the Heavenly Hosts, a group of aristocrats who meet for any type of sinful indulgence they please. He is thirty-nine and somewhat bored with life. They are meeting in his Chateau outside of Paris when a girl in rags is brought in. He becomes intrigued with her immediately.

Elinor Harriman just found out her mother has escaped. She is so sick and yet she was off to indulge in her sinful antics. Elinor had heard of The King of Hell and she was going into his lair but her mother had taken what little money they had and a diamond broach. Their father had not provided for them and her mother spent what they had on gambling. Elinor had Lydia, her younger sister, to think of and would do anything to help her. Elinor was considered plain but every man who met Lydia fell in love with her.

Rohan stays intrigued with Elinor and decides he wants her, what he wants he gets. A secondary story continues with Charles Reading and Lydia. Charles is Rohan's best friend and involved with the Heavenly Hosts group. He needs to marry a rich heiress though and Lydia is far from that.

This book does contain some language and sexual situations.
