The Rover archiveVenice. Carnival! Social order is turned on its head. Masters become servants and servants their masters; identities hide behind masks; fantasies become deliciously real... Wilmore, a banished Cavalier, flees the austere chill of Cromwell's England and arrives with excitement in Venice. He charms two women: a courtesan, and a young woman about to be forced into a convent by her brother. And Wilmore thrills in pursuing them both... But masks must come off, lanterns burn out, and even fantasy has dangerous consequences. Follow the carnival through passageways and misty canals on a journey of seduction and revenge.
