SYNOPSIS

Lady will kill Sir Hugh Allan. But first she’ll have to take down the Irish Mob.

She doesn’t know how, or when. But, at any cost, she will.

It's 1872, and the bustling port city of Montreal is brimming with growth and fortune. Fat rich men spend frivolously on carnal desires. Life in the brothel Angels Roost prospers under the clever MADAM BELLE’S rule, aided by her cadre

of high-caliber prostitutes. Unique amongst the residents is “LADY” LUCILLE ROLAND, their acerbic young landlady.

LOnce a revered socialite, Lady was ruined by the scandalous death of her husband, and her fortunes pilfered by the shipping magnate, SIR HUGH ALLAN. Lady is determined to exact revenge and reclaim the wealth that’s rightfully hers. Being ensconced in a brothel patronized by the city’s movers and shakers has its benefits. For there’s only one thing more valuable than

money: information. At Angels Roost information is currency and Lady is rich. With the scoundrels of the street at her beck and call and the sinful secrets of the elite at her fingertips, she’s never been more powerful.

As Lady becomes embroiled in a turf war with the Irish mob and exposes one of the biggest political scandals in Canadian history, she also develops a profound investment in the lives of

the women working in the brothel. These women all have their own tangled dramas that complicate life in Angels Roost. When the venerated

Madam passes away, Lady inherits both the business and the daily challenges of the women under her charge. She now must protect the brothel that she

has grown to love against hostile outside forces and dissension from within.

Heaven help anyone who gets in her way.
