An arrogant, charismatic king seduces his innocent young ward; a rakish dandy searches salons and boudoirs for a rich and well-connected wife; a dangerous criminal buys his freedom through betrayal just before facing the noose; a wife and a mistress meet for the first time.
In her witty and romantic tales of the scandals and passions of the imaginary kingdom of Angria, Charlotte Brontë conjures up a world of amoral, dissolute heroes, daydreaming heroines, high-society courtesans, duelling, drinking, adultery and intrigue.
