A young prince is christened on the morning before Saint Valentine’s Day, and Princess Briar Rose makes sure everything is perfect for her son’s introduction to the world. She retires to her chamber for a rest before the celebratory banquet, but her nap is interrupted by disturbing noises from the bedchamber next door. Assuming Countess Thirza, the occupant, is in agony, Rose tries to help. Instead, it is pleasure that is causing the ruckus. Rose is determined to observe the amusement, but rather than being an innocent bystander, she is swept into the delicious headiness of self-gratification. With a countess in her bed, lust in her eyes and a blistering heat coursing through her veins, there is only one way for this to end.
