Summary

An enthralling novel set in early 19th-century England, Paris, and New York, featuring an indomitable young heroine who rises from ruin to become the toast of Paris, by way of the chic bordello she establishes for the most powerful men in France.
Turned out of her ancestral home by her vicious half brother, the orphaned daughter of an English duke and a French noblewoman makes her way to Paris and takes in abused French streetwalkers, transforming them into sought-after courtesans in the city's most exclusive bordello, Le Boudoir. It is only the beginning of her return to the upper reaches of society and ultimate justice.

Feel good book

Really enjoyed this book. DS can sometimes be a little predictable, this book wasn't. It had some twists and turns and was a very enjoyable read.

Great book!

If you like Downton Abbey, you will enjoy this book. Could not stop listening to it.

Fenris reads!

Gideon Emery's performance is perfection. His character voices are varied, and his pacing is moderate. It's like having Fenris read a bedtime story to Hawke. But, Varric would have written a much more interesting story.

I thought I was getting a romance novel by the "great" Danielle Steele. The writing is repetitive and there isn't any sex!!! NONE! The love interest doesn't even show up until the last 1/10th of the book. The character of the Duchess is a feminist. That's about the only good thing I have to say about it. Reminiscent of Downton Abbey, with less interesting characters.
