I invite you to step into a world where dark heroes seduce plucky heroines, where the path to happily ever after is paved in jagged cobblestones and the streets are lit with oil lamps...if they are lit at all.

The eighteenth century is a dangerous place, full of unexpected pleasures and delights, but beware your step: round a corner you might fall prey to rogues and highwaymen, to ladies of their night and their wicked promenades.

But fear not, gentle reader.  Fear nothing.  Bring along your wits and your love of a romantic tale and we will make the best of it together.
