SOLD by her lover!
Emma Hart stepped towards Charles Greville, her body yearning for his strong embrace. Charles, a dark figure among the oriental curios and erotic statues he collected, stared at her coldly. In a final, impassioned gesture to the man who had ruthlessly betrayed her, Emma undid the clasp of her velvet cloak and stood before him, a nude Venus in a candlelit room. Charles felt a rush of desire – the he hesitated… Emma, sold by her lover to an aging Sir William Hamilton, sought to recapture her past ecstasy in the arms of many men. The greatest of her lovers was Admiral Horatio Nelson, fresh from his victory of the Nile, and their affair became the scandal of an empire. But even Nelson;s demanding love could not erase in Emma the bitter memory of Greville’s dark betrayal.
A fictionalized account of the affairs of Lady Emma Hamilton.
