The Lover Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Lover

Anne Aines is a spinster. She pays 1000 pounds to loose her virginity to Micheal Des Anges. He was a prostitute in London, but after being scarred in a fire, no one will touch him. After a wild night, they agree to become lovers for a month. His uncle has been tormenting and torturing him since he was a boy by turning the foods he loves into something that makes him sick. The only thing his uncle didn't contaminate is sex with women, which is why he became the greatest protitute in London and France. Even that was taken away when he was scarred. He knows that by seeing Anne, his uncle will try to kill her. His last love was tortured and the trama caused her to commit suicide. He doesn't want to fall in love with her, but after he does he must protect her while trapping his uncle. Not for the faint of heart. Graphic sex including a hot scene with a banana and chocolate.
