The Virgin and The Bull by Erato


The
Virgin and The Bull
by
Erato

Genre:
Noir Romance, Suspense Thriller

Suicide,
rape, murder — Love is a serpent more subtle than any of the field.


Twenty-three
year old Charles Macgregor had everything going for him, so why did
he choose to take his own life? As the Sheriff-Depute of Edinburgh
reads through his collected letters, he uncovers a breathtaking story
of femmes fatales, jealous rivals, and love gone violently awry.


An
artful and intellectual thriller told with a noir style, 
The
Virgin and the Bull 
shocks
and startles with tense plot, lurid sex and vivid characters amidst a
seductive and scary vision of Old England and Scotland. The frisson
is out of this world when the fiery anatomist Macgregor risks life
and limb to fulfill his desperate desire for the dangerously
beautiful Constance Fawkes, pitted against her mad father and the
more-than-meets-the-eye “virgin” priest, Francis
Exenchester. 



“Erato did a superb job… the pace
is right on point… highly intriguing… It blows your mind.” - T.
Renee, author of 
Hearts
On Fire

Be
taken to another ERA with ERATO.


Erato is a hispanic American
author of historical fiction. Her stories are often set in the
Georgian/Regency period, taking the characters past the traditional
bonnets and balls into gritty cities, forced marriages and painful
love affairs.

The name Erato belonged to one of the nine muses
of Greek mythology: that who ruled love stories. No, it's not the
same word as erOtic; literally Erato is "the Lovely," from
Greek erastos "loved, beloved; lovely, charming." The
author's own given name being that of a different muse, the name
Erato was chosen as the nomme de plume that seemed especially fit for
writing historical stories with a romantic theme, though she also
writes historical novels without strong romantic elements. Her works
are normally highly researched, subversive, and can tend toward
humorous even when telling of tragedy.
