Douglas Abrams’s magical debut novel captures the heart of the Spanish Golden Age and the secret life of the world’s greatest lover–Don Juan.

It was a time of discovery and decadence, when life became a gamble and the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself. In the midst of these treacherous times, Juan Tenorio is born and then abandoned in the barn of a convent. He wants nothing more than to be a priest, until he falls in love with one of the sisters. When their affair is discovered, Juan leaves the Church forever. He is soon recruited to be a spy by the powerful Marquis de la Mota, who teaches him to become the world’s greatest libertine and seducer of women.

It is after knowing countless women that Don Juan is convinced by the Marquis to keep a diary, and it is here within its pages that he reveals his greatest adventures and the Arts of Passion he mastered. But what finally compels him to confess everything is the most perilous adventure of all–the irresistible fall into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others.

The Lost Diary of Don Juan is not only a triumph of literary imagination but a deliciously sensual exploration of the secrets to undying love. At once a profound meditation and daring adventure, this novel brings to life one of history’s most notorious and alluring individuals with depth, intelligence, and delight.

    " Ah, what fun this book was. Swashbuckling, racy, dramatic... it kept me engrossed and entertained. Awesome. "

    " What a joke! I couldn't get past the first 75 pages it was so cheesy. A well written harlequin/soft porn for men! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Laura | 2/8/2014

    " This was a charming novel celebrating the beauty of both love and lust. I found this book to be a quick read due to the fast pace of the story. The writing was languid and luxurious, as was the fantasy of the archtype hero (even if he was more focused on quantity of lovers rather than quality). My only complaint is the development of the latter half of the novel - I wish the author would've given as much respect to the end of the book as he did the beginning. "

    " Completely enjoyed this book. It's about how to love a woman and how to understand the way their mind and body works. A good historical fiction and mystery as well. "
