Thanks to an unknown benefactor, Aurelia travels to America to continue her education. There she comes across the existence of an exclusive ball that has been held every year for centuries. The decadent celebration of the senses travels from country to country, cropping up in secret locations and including only a very selective list of guests.
Caught up in a world of passion and intrigue, Aurelia soon becomes one of the ball’s star attractions. But little does she know that as her involvement with the festivities increases, she is coming ever closer to discovering the truth about her mysterious benefactor, her own past, and the identity of the one man she has ever truly loved.
Mistress of Night and Dawn by Vina Jackson
This book was different for me. I have not read any previous books from the author and I didn’t know what to expect. It has a unique storyline with timelines showing what happened at previous Balls (erotic celebrations) from 1788 to 1847, to help you understand Auerlia’s destiny. It definitely has a fantasy feel and at times I thought it was a little slow paced, but I think it was well written with a lot of details.
