Format: Paperback
Robert Lloyd, a poet and fledgling newspaper founder was desperate. His publishing venture was more expensive than he had realized. Incarceration in a debtor's prison was a very real possibility and he has fallen in love with the beautiful and daring Patience Churchill.
Patience is fascinating and "the woman of his dreams" but "Patty" is determined to become a member of the Hell Fire Club, the secret order of Franciscans founded by Francis Dashwood and some of the most famous men of the eighteenth century. Robert is convinced that she doesn't realize what a woman's initiation to the infamous and decadent club would involve.
Agonizing over his problems, Robert is walking along a country road when he is struck and thrown unconscious to the road. When he wakes, he is in 1999 and a beautiful woman named Pat is holding his hand.
As Robert struggles to understand what has befallen him, he becomes an unwilling traveler through time, thrust into the future from events in 1762 and then dragged back again.Robert must find a way to save Patty from the defilement she will suffer at the hands of the Hell Fire Club members during their sacrilegious initiation ceremony and resolve whether his love is in the 18th or 20th century.
Michael Dennison has woven a complex story of love and lust in a time when great men and their ideas were changing the world and society. Set against the historical events of England in 1762, Hellfire is a spell binding story about lovers and sinners and the dramatic events of one evening in 1762 that changed so many lives.

If you like to sit on the edge of your seat, you'll like this story. Mixing history with romance and a bit of mystery and intrique is a great combination to kick back with a drink for a nice evening and a great book. You won't be sorry.
