Welcome to The Menagerie. You’ll be offered a single choice. Your deepest desires, granted. Once made, it cannot be undone.
Cyler spent a century training under the strict tutelage of the Scholars of Farjhem. Now, as he prepares to be sent off into the world a new fledgling, he has only one desire: to serve Agripin, the Grand Duke of his homeland.
After missing his chance, a dejected Cyler is instead presented with another, entirely different offer: An invitation from Duchess Oriana, the duke’s beautiful but depraved sister, to join in her den of hedonism known only as The Menagerie.
Cyler accepts the coveted invite to this secret world of sensual wonders, but not all is what it Oriana has her designs set on more than offering a service. As he is pulled deeper into the underground world of wicked decadence, he beings to see how prophetic the words on his invite truly are.
This is Sarah M Cradit like you’ve never seen her before. The House of Crimson & Clover series has always been sensual and has grown bolder as the series progresses. However, this is probably the spiciest story I have read in the series thus far. – Julie Whiteley, Clue Review
As Ms Cradit says at the start of this short bonus story from the Crimson and Clover series, it’s for readers who like a spicier interlude. And spicy it is! – Cathy Ryan, Between the Lines
Watch out, this author has a dangerous imagination!- Helen Dannenberg
