The House with the Golden Door

by Elodie Harper
The life of a courtesan in Pompeii is glamorous yet perilous . . .
Amara has escaped her life as a slave in the Wolf Den, the city’s most notorious brothel, but now her survival depends on the affections of her patron: a man she might not know as well as she once thought. At night in the home he bought for her, the house with the golden door, Amara’s dreams are haunted by her past. She longs for her sisterhood of friends—the women at the brothel she was forced to leave behind—and worse, finds herself pursued by the cruel and vindictive man who once owned her. To be truly free, she will need to be as ruthless as he is. Amara knows her existence in Pompeii is subject to Venus, the goddess of love. Yet finding love may prove to be the most dangerous act of all. This is the second installment in Elodie Harper's acclaimed Wolf Den Trilogy, which reimagines the lives of women long overlooked.
“Grounded in not just emotional truth, but archeological fact, Harper’s meticulously researched series will likely change the way you think about the ancient world and the people who inhabited it.” — Paste Magazine
