Paris-based businessman Pierre Edenton seems to have it all: wealth, good looks, a job he thrives on and many support staff. The only thing he is missing is the love of a good woman. Bruised and vulnerable after the failure of his first marriage, he is determined never to make the same mistake again. So when the stunningly beautiful Virginia Bamidoyan glides into his life he does everything he can to give her what she wants. Nothing is too extravagant for his faultless lover, and the plot unfolds amid ravishing luxury settings and precious objects. In tribute to Louis XIV and the romantic ideal, Pierre insists that he and Virginia maintain their own separate living spaces in order to make the most of the time they spend together; an elegant and practical arrangement. With the hardships and humiliations of her youth still fresh in her memory, Virginia delights in her new life, and repays her generous ‘Pierrot’ by giving him two beautiful boys and the affection he craves. But a series of untoward incidents hint that all is not as it seems below the surface of this picture-perfect family.
