In this vivid reimagining of the French classic Les
Liaisons Dangereuses, itâ€™s the summer when Jackie
Robinson breaks Major League Baseballâ€™s color barrier and
a sweltering stretch has Harlemâ€™s elite fleeing the city
for Westchester Countyâ€™s breezier climes, two predators
stalk amidst the manicured gardens and fine old homes.
Heiress Mae Malveaux rules society with an angelâ€™s smile
and a heart of stone. She made up her mind long ago that
nobody would decide her fate. To have the pleasure she
craves, control is paramount, especially control of the
men Mae attracts like moths to a flame.
Valiant Jackson always gets what he wantsâ€”and heâ€™s wanted
Mae for years. The door finally opens for him when Mae
strikes a bargain: seduce her virginal young cousin,
Cecily, who is engaged to Frank Washington. Frank values
her innocence above all else. If successful, Valâ€™s reward
will be a night with Mae.
But Val secretly seeks another prize. Elizabeth Townsend
is fiercely loyal to her church and her civil rights
attorney husband. Certain there is something redeemable
in Mr. Jackson. Little does she know that her worst
mistake will be Valâ€™s greatest triumph.
