9780060936822: Nectar: A Novel of Temptation

Ramona Drottoveo, an albino, is a chambermaid at a lush Italian estate. Distinguished by the intoxicating scent she exudes, Ramona is despised by all women and adored by all men, whose inexhaustible lust she eagerly satisfies. Life changes when her husband dies after discovering his bride with another man on their wedding night. Blamed for his death, Ramona and her lover are exiled to the neighboring city of Naples. There, Ramona's life is transformed once again by the birth of a daughter, Blandina, who "steals" her mother's scent. No longer able to seduce men into blind submission, Ramona humbly returns to the estate to an unexpected welcome -- and revenge.

A hilarious and naughty celebration of the senses and the strange places they can lead us, Nectar explores the mystery of sexual attraction and the frivolous nature of divine justice.

Review:

'A glorious confection of sensuality, mysticism and witty characters...Very entertaining' -- GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

'Hilarious...Like LA CUCINA, Prior's follow-up bursts with mouthwatering descriptions of sumptuous meals...Bottom Line: Smells like a winner' -- PEOPLE

'Think of her as Moll Flanders or Tom Jones, or perhaps the anti-Candide...there are surprising twists and turns in this picaresque work' -- WASHINGTON POST

From the Publisher:

A new novel by the author of LA CUCINA set in Italy about a servant girl whose bewitching aroma drives all men who inhale it to the point of madness.
