Even angels, it seems, can be tempted. For Angelica Pruitt, the lovely but impoverished minister's daughter living in a squalid London boardinghouse, the inducement is a good meal after three days without food. Reluctantly she agrees to help noted courtesan Cicely Bryant entertain a small party of gentlemen at dinner in a secluded Vauxhall grotto. But when dashing adventurer Jason Kitteradge arrives to claim her for his dinner companion, she loses her nerve and flees. Jason is intrigued by the would-be demimondaine who claims to have read Homer in the original Greek and to know the legend of Aphrodite's Mask, which he plans to sell in order to recoup the family fortunes. When he pursues her, however, one of Cicely's footmen strikes him unconscious. Allen has woven magic and myth, temptation and innocence, historical tidbits and artifacts into a captivating Regency-era romance with a paranormal twist, complete with an engaging appearance by the prince himself.
