Desire is a powerful drug for a novelist visiting Venice, as he finds himself powerless against the advances of a greedy Frenchwoman. Eva Olivier has her way with men, luring their every move by using her body as bait. Tyvian Jones is the latest victim to fall prey to her seductive scheme. Humiliated and degraded, Tyvian may never be free of Eva as her trap is set and he is completely ensnared.
