In 1847, Giana Van Cleve spends a very unusual three months in Rome, all because of a bargain she made with her mother, the renowned Aurora Van Cleve, a wealthy shipowner and builder in Victorian England, a woman who will do anything to save her seventeen-year-old daughter from a vicious fortune hunter. But events come to pass that Aurora never anticipated.
Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room but in a brothel. The next time she sees him she is one of the virgins to be sold to the highest bidder at the infamous Roman Flower Auction. He wins the bid and her. But when Alex comes again into Giana's life four years later in London, she has become a woman intent on success in a man's world. Alex is set on revenge-he will have her and nothing will stop him.
