The Belladonna Invitation by Rose Biggin
Soprano, socialite, queen of the demimonde—the enigmatic Belladonna is the undisputed ruler of 1890s Parisian society. At her highly exclusive salons it’s an open secret that she plays poisonous games with select clientele. A printer’s apprentice, longing to enter this glamorous world, works her way through the Opera House ranks to become Belladonna’s indispensable assistant. But when a troubling affair with the wrong lover goes too far, the consequences turn deadly.
A luxurious gothic drama where everything is performance and illusion, The Belladonna Invitation asks: how far will we go to get what we want, and how much are we willing to let it change us?
