Dangerous Liaisons

Lust, Treachery, and Scandal This scandalous novel of eighteenth-century French aristocrats crackles with sexual tension and suspense. The Marquise de Mertueil and the Comte de Valmont choose an upright young woman to corrupt and betray, but their game of hearts and loins turns and turns again over the course of their correspondence, as they exchange letters that start out witty and urbane and turn by degrees to deceit, rage, revenge, and a fateful duel. The book focuses on the Comte de Valmont's attempts to prove that his rakish reputation is overblown, while his partner-in-decadence the Marquise eggs him on. The story is so compelling that it has been filmed not just once but four times, as Dangerous Liaisons, Cruel Intentions, Valmont and Les Liaisons Dangereuses.
