In a dystopian world where depravity reigns and power corrupts…
Revenge. It’s what Adette Johnstone has been thinking of for years in the bleak world that is a dystopian, fallout-covered Los Angeles. Now the one person she trusted – the woman who took her in, cared for her, and educated her to be an accomplished courtesan – has placed Adette in the hands of a murderer. Adette must seduce her own enemy, Regime billionaire Icharus DeVille, the man she blames for her mother’s death.
Even as she indulges in the forbidden pleasures of being a contracted slave to the dominant Icharus, Adette is also embroiled in a secret scheme to avenge the loss of her mother, a plot that might even instigate a revolution. Now she treads a dangerous line between personal duty and desire, and realizes she might just want her enemy as her lover after all.
She will need to use all her wiles and training to defy the Regime, as well as to keep from losing her own heart.
