The first in a captivating trilogy full of romance and adventure from international bestselling author Lesley Pearse.

London, 1910. Though raised in a brothel, fifteen-year-old Belle is still an innocent, carefree girl. That all changes when she witnesses a murder.

After seeing a girl strangled by her client, Belle’s life is turned upside down. From the brothel to the streets, Belle is sold into the seedy world of sex trafficking and shipped away to New Orleans where she is made a courtesan.

With little autonomy and even less hope, Belle is at the mercy of the men she is forced to entertain.

With a broken spirit, dreams of her home and family are all that keep Belle going. But if she were to find her freedom, would she have a home to return to?
