An erotic historical romp set in 18th century England. In Gloucestershire Lady Catherine Balfour is despairing of her husband's spendthrift and licentious ways. She is also struggling to quell the passions which arise in her at the sight of so many handsome labourers toiling on her land. But it is when her husband commissions aspiring young artist Joshua Foxe to paint the likenesses of the entire Balfour family that her world turns upside down. For this man, who she at first thinks is no more than a mincing fop, is about to seduce every female in the village; Catherine included. In the ensuing weeks, only one woman will succeed in winning his heart and his body. But Catherine has a rival closer to home - her wilful and haughty daughter, Sophie, is equally determined to claim Joshua as her own.
