The life of a courtesan in Pompeii is glamorous yet perilous . . .
Amara has escaped her life as a slave in the Wolf Den, the city’s most notorious brothel, but now her survival depends on the affections of her patron: a man she might not know as well as she once thought. 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.

The House with the Golden Door by Elodie Harper is just as captivating story as the The Wolf Den. Elodie Harper creates a world that is immersible, and harsh.
We follow a greek woman Amara, solid into slavery and living in a brothel as a prostitute, in Pompeii, known as the Lupanar or ‘Wolf Den.
Following the events of the end of Wolf Den, The House with the Golden Door is a continuation of Amara’s turbulent life. She has left the brothel and is walking a fine line of a courtesan.
