From prize-winning and international bestselling author Elodie Harper, the second book in the Wolf Den Trilogy introduces Amara, as she escapes her life as a slave in the city’s most notorious brothel, the Wolf Den. Her survival depends on the affections of a man she might not know as well as she once thought . . .

The life of a courtesan in Pompeii is glamorous yet perilous. At night in the home he bought for her, the house with the golden door, Amara’s dreams are haunted by her past. She longs for her sisterhood of friends—the women at the brothel she was forced to leave behind—and worse, finds herself pursued by the cruel and vindictive man who once owned her. To be truly free, she will need to be as ruthless as he is. Amara knows her existence in Pompeii is subject to Venus, the goddess of love. Yet finding love may prove to be the most dangerous act of all.

My Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

After reading The Wolf Den last year, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on The House With The Golden Door. This second installment in the Wolf Den Trilogy I was blown away. Not only did it hold up to the first but surpassed it. The strong female presence is awesome. Elodie has a way with her writing that draws you in and has you experiencing all the feels. I think this is an extraordinary follow up. I can’t say too much without giving anything away. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, you’re doing a disservice to yourself. I can’t wait for the finale!
