Belinda is the ultimate fantasy: a golden-haired object of desire, fresh and uninhibited. But to Jeremy Walker, a handsome and famous 44-year-old illustrator of children's books, this incredibly seductive woman is a forbidden passion . . . because Belinda is only 16.
"Who was she?" That was the first thought that came into my mind when I saw her in the bookstore.
Who was she really?
She's Belinda. She's sixteen years old. She's the object of one man's ultimate fantasy. And she's one of the most "uniquely sensual and provocative" heroines to emerge from the "fearless" imagination of Anne Rice.
There is Lisa: They call her the Perfectionist. A stunning, mysterious, and fearless sexual adventurer, she is founder and supreme mistress of The Club--an expensive, exclusive island resort where forbidden fantasy meets willing flesh.
There is Elliott: A thrill-seeking photographer who has risked his life in war zones around the world. Now he is committed to the ultimate plunge into personal risk--exploring his darkest sexual self.
Join them on a journey to the limits of erotic pleasure and beyond. Surrender to the tantalizing wonders of the imagination behind the spellbinding sensuality of The Vampire Chronicles. Take leave of the world you know--and step into Eden. . . .
