Four years have passed since the events of Pleasure,
and Nia’s success as a writer has grown, bringing her from Atlanta to Los
Angeles. But she remains on a quest to quiet her inner storm, to draw on her
well of emotions and explore them fully before leaving this season of her life
and moving on to what could be the next stage: marriage and motherhood.
Drawn to an exclusive pleasure palace, where patrons try on
roles as they actively shun their respective realities, Nia’s ability to
balance truth and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. What has happened to
the compartments she has so carefully created for the different aspects of her
life? Will her relationship with the mysterious, often unavailable Prada
survive the countless temptations? Will her successful literary career be given
over to impulse indulgence? Does decadence know any bounds?
When Nia’s past comes back to mingle with her present, and
when her staid public persona clashes with her fantasy life of decadence,
readers will be stunned by the outcome. Eric Jerome Dickey’s newest tale of
excess and its sky-high costs is a thrilling portrait of a glittering world.
