With her grandfather dangerously ill, sixteen-year-old Antonia Moran is left to fend for herself at the flamboyant and licentious court of Louis XV.
The Comte de Salvan, with his painted pock-marked face and penchant for girls just out of the convent, is determined to marry Antonia to his opium-addicted son, then take her for his own.
Antonia throws herself on the mercy of the arrogant Duke of Roxton, a man famous all through France and England for his debauchery. Spirited, educated and very beautiful; Antonia falls in love with Roxton, who is also old enough to be her father.
But the Comte wants her, and is willing to do anything to get her. The Duke of Roxton will protect the innocent girl to the end....The dangerous game has begun.
