John Haggard- In his private Caribbean kingdom, he reveled in ruling men and women body and soul. He came to England seeking new worlds to conquer with his fabulous wealth, and new pleasures for his insatiable flesh to enjoy. Emma- An exquisite indentured servant girl, who was bought by Haggard to amuse him in bed. She soon broke his iron command with a love that knew no barrier of class- and a passion that threatened to destroy them both. Alison- Her porcelain beauty seemed almost too perfect to be true and too delicate to withstand the force of John Haggard's desires. Too late he discovered the inferno of depravity within this seemingly innocent young creature as she became his wife and maddening curse.

Born in the West Indies, British author Christopher Nicole's historical fiction has won international acclaim. Christopher Nicole lives with his wife, Diana, also a novelist, in the Channel Islands.From AudioFile:
If you can get past the author's premise that rape and beating are acceptable methods of expressing frustration and performing domestic discipline, and that raped women love forever the men who rape them, you might be able to enjoy this formulaic historical romance. Clifford Norgate offers a fine performance, distinguishing clearly among the many and varied characters of the story. His Lord Byron is simperingly effete, and his black Caribbean slaves' dialects are flawless. Nicole's story begins in Barbados and ends in London, and Norgate's performance keeps up with the changes effortlessly. Unbelievably, he manages to drag the ridiculous plot out of the mud and keep entertainment value high. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
