Summary
In this vivid reimagining of the French classic Les Liaisons Dangereuses, it's the summer when Jackie Robinson breaks Major League Baseball's color barrier and a sweltering stretch has Harlem's elite fleeing the city for Westchester County's breezier climes, two predators stalk amidst the manicured gardens and fine old homes. Heiress Mae Malveaux rules society with an angel's smile and a heart of stone. She made up her mind long ago that nobody would decide her fate. To have the pleasure she craves, control is paramount, especially control of the men Mae attracts like moths to a flame. Valiant Jackson always gets what he wants, and he's wanted Mae for years. The door finally opens for him when Mae strikes a bargain: seduce her virginal young cousin, Cecily, who is engaged to Frank Washington. Frank values her innocence above all else. If successful, Val's reward will be a night with Mae. But Val secretly seeks another prize. Elizabeth Townsend is fiercely loyal to her church and her civil rights attorney husband. Certain there is something redeemable in Mr. Jackson. Little does she know that her worst mistake will be Val's greatest triumph
Summary
Set in 1947 Harlem, this retelling of Les Liaisons Dangereuses centers around a pact between scheming heiress Mae Malveaux and charming nightclub owner Valiant "Val" Jackson: if Val seduces Cecily, Mae's virginal cousin and the fiancée of her ex-lover, Mae will sleep with him. However, Cecily has fallen in love with a jazz musician, while Val's got his eye on Elisabeth Thompson, a married woman who believes (wrongly) that Val can be redeemed. The stage is set for high society scandal. -- Description by Gillian Speace
