Is a girl born a witch? Or does she become one? How does Jeanne become Tempeste?
Jeanne was born on a poor farm. She accompanies her father to the big market a few days’ ride away to sell their pigs. Alas for Jeanne, daddy gambles her away to a wealthy man, never to see her home or family again. Will he be kind to her?
Enchanteur lives in a stone tower in the middle of a forest, far from any road, track or village. He teaches Jeanne about beauty and elegance. He shows her about self-care and good health. She embraces it all so fully that she just wants more of these delightful pleasures.
Thus, Enchanteur begins to teach her magic, how to re-weave the fabric of the world around her to start a fire with the snap of her fingers, to move objects across the room with her mind. She begs him to teach her how to see other places beyond the tower, as she has watched him do, using his cauldron as a portal. She watches the ladies of the palace use tricks to lure handsome knights to their beds for sex – a pleasure Enchanteur never speaks of, or seems to even think about.
But now Jeanne wants to add this fantasy to all the others she now knows. Can she seduce Enchanteur? Can she use her power to bid him do her will, bring him to submission?
And if so, need she take a new name to celebrate her new prestige?
NOTE: Tower of Lust is the Prequel to Monica Bentley's Chateau of Love trilogy.
