The Temple of Fortuna: Signed Exclusive Edition - The Wolf Den Trilogy (Hardback)Elodie Harper (author)
Harper's scintillating Wolf Den trilogy reaches its explosive conclusion as Amara's inexorable rise through Roman society coincides with the notorious eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
Signed Exclusive Edition contains an extra chapter from the author on the history of Pompeii
The final instalment in Elodie Harper's Sunday Times bestselling Wolf Den Trilogy
A courtesan in Rome. Playing for power. Haunted by her past. Her name is Amara. How will her fortunes fall?
Amara's journey has taken her far, from a lowly slave in Pompeii's brothel to a high-powered courtesan in Rome. She is now a freedwoman with wealth and influence, yet she is still drawn back to her past; to the streets that once claimed her, and the friends, lovers and rivals who helped shape her.
For while she is caught up in the political scheming of the imperial palace, her daughter remains in Pompeii, raised by the only man Amara ever truly loved. Although she longs for her family, Amara knows they are safest while she is far away. Perhaps, with enough cunning and courage, she will manage to turn Fortuna's wheel in their favour.
But the year is AD 79, and mighty Mount Vesuvius is preparing to make itself known.
