The book was written while Sade was imprisoned in the Bastille and the manuscript was lost during the storming of the Bastille. Many consider this to be Sade crowning achievement. A man he can never have, but in whose hands Kingsley is reborn to attain even greater heights of sin. The club becomes Kingsley's obsession—and he's enlisted some tough-as-nails help. His new assistant Sam is smart, secretive and totally immune to seduction by men, at least. She and Kingsley make a wicked team.
